The FCA All-Star Football Classic has been officially canceled for 2020.

This will be the first year in its 10-year history that the game will not go on as planned. Luke Llamas, the FCA Multi-Area Director for the Central Coast, said the CIF’s timeline to make a decision regarding the 2020 fall sports season played a role in the FCA’s decision. Health concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the physicality of the sport of football are factors as well.

“We’ve been holding out as long as we can to try and still host this game to recognize these all-stars, but in light of all the stuff that’s going on, we’re going to have to cancel the game,” said Llamas. “It’s really unfortunate. This was going to be our 10-year anniversary. We still want to honor the players, so they’re still going to be getting all the hats and shirts and swag that we normally give them. Unfortunately, we aren’t going to be able to get out there on the field to play, but we’re excited for them for the next season ahead.”

We will continue to preview the remainder of the players that made the teams on KSBY throughout the week.
