Taliaferro All-Star Game Closes Season Taliaferro All-Star Game Concludes South Jersey Scholastic Season

It is the final event of the 2014-2015 scholastic sports season, so Wednesday’s Adam Taliaferro Foundation All-Star Football Classic should attract a good crowd.

Kickoff is 7pm at Rowan University.

For those starving for football, it is an opportunity to see some of the South Jersey’s top graduating seniors represent their teams one last time.

And for those who will miss football once the game concludes, there won’t be that much of a lull. Teams will report to training camps sometime around Aug. 15. The first regular season game for most teams will be the weekend of Sept. 11-12.

The Taliaferro all-star game has become one of the area's signature events. The proceeds benefit the Adam Tailaferro Foundation, which helps those who have incurred life-altering spinal injuries. Even for those who can’t attend the game, anybody interested in donating to the foundation should visit taliaferrofoundation.org.

The Blue Squad is coached by Vineland’s Dan Russo. It consists of players from Burlington, Cumberland, Atlantic and Cape May Counties.

The White Squad is coached by Woodstown’s John Adams and is comprised of players from Camden, Gloucester and Salem Counties.

While we ran the original rosters a few months ago, there have been changes made--players who had to pull out for one reason or another, and others who were added.
