The Ohio North-South Classic All-Star Classic high school football games will not be played this year to prevent exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The Classic is the longest-running high school football all-star game in America.
This year was going to mark the 75th game in the intra-state games that feature players in two games. One game spotlights players in Divisions I through III and the another game features players from Divisions IV, V, VI and VII. The games were scheduled to be played April 25 at Paul Brown Stadium in Massillon.
“The Ohio High School Football Coaches Association’s main priority is the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, event staff, fans and media,” said Pavlansky, President of the OHSFCA. “With this in mind, the OHSFCA has made the decision to cancel the North-South Classic. We look forward to the OHSFCA North-South Classic returning in 2021.”
