Erie’s Save An Eye All Star Football Game Makes Changes
From Staff Reports
The 81st annual Save-An-Eye all-star football game will have a new format and a new location this summer.
Game officials announced on Monday that with only four teams left in the city, the game will no longer pit athletes from the city against the county. One team will consist of players from McDowell, Mercyhurst Prep, Erie, Iroquois, Harbor Creek and Fairview and will be coached by Iroquois coach Matt Morgan. They will be called the Metro Team.
General McLane coach Jim Wells will coach the other team, consisting of players from Cathedral Prep, Corry, General McLane, Fort LeBoeuf, North East, Northwestern, Seneca, Girard and Union City. They will be named the County Team.
The game is usually at Veterans Stadium, but renovations to the turf won’t be finished until early September. The Save-An-Eye game this season will take place at McDowell’s Gus Anderson Field on July 19 at p.m.
