North All-Star squads victorious in FCA games

Some of the Big Country and Concho Valley’s best athletes were on display this past week at the annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes All-Star games held in San Angelo and Abilene.
The week’s activities began Friday with the FCA North versus South baseball and softball games.

Angelo State University signee Heather Reatherford was on the North All-Stars team that was victorious 6-4 over the South All-Stars.
Reatherford was the lone Lady Buckaroo that has competed in the FCA softball game in its three years of existence. She played third base for the North All-Stars.

Buckaroo Jared McLane was a member of the North All-Star baseball team that defeated the South All-Stars 7-5.
McLane played catcher for the North and was three-for-three in the game.

The FCA volleyball match was held Saturday at Abilene Wylie High School.
Lady Buckaroo Emma Davis was a member of the North All-Stars that were also victorious in a 25-23, 25-21 sweep

The win evens the series at 2-2 since volleyball was added to the FCA All-Star Festival in 2013. The South won the inaugural match 3-2, and the teams have traded wins the last three years.

The 2016 FCA football game followed a new format this year.
Coaches drafted players from area schools and formed a Red and Blue team as apposed to the traditional North and South teams.

In the end it was the Red All-Stars that came away with a 33-0 win over the Blue All-Stars.
Buckaroo nation was represented well in the game as Quinton Ellis and Cade Cornett were on the Red All-Stars.

Breckenridge Athletic and Head Football Coach Casey Hubble served as a coach for the Red All-Stars.
Hubble was the defensive play caller for the Red All-Stars with his defense holding the Blue All-Stars to 61 total offensive yards.

The Red’s defense held the Blue All-Stars to three yards rushing on 33 attempts and 58 yards passing.
The Red squad managed 216 yards of total offense, 181 yards passing and 35 yards rushing on 23 attempts.

Ellis saw playing time at linebacker and had an interception in the game. He also served as a run blocker in the backfield on offense.

Cornett, a quarterback by trade, played tight-end and served as a run blocker in the backfield.

Both Ellis and Cornett also played on special teams.
