Press Release 2021
Re: 2021 Phil Simms NJ North South All-Star Game
For Immediate release
Ninety players representing high schools across the Garden State have been selected for the 2021 Phil Simms New Jersey North South High School All-Star Football Classic, presented by Investors Bank. These high school seniors were selected from a pool of talented athletes based on their athletic accomplishments and coach’s recommendation.
While the State of New Jersey’s vaccination program is well underway, new cases and deaths are sadly still occurring. As members of the Classic’s Executive Committee, we are responsible for providing a safe environment for the players, coaches and fans. Unfortunately, at this time, even with enhanced precautions, we cannot guarantee that safety. For this reason,
we have decided to cancel the 2021 game.
We share the disappointment with the student athletes that are not able to participate in the longest-running high school football all-star game in the state. While not being able to step on the gridiron with their all-star teammates, these student athletes will be forever etched in the record books among some of the best high school football players from the Garden State.
On behalf of the Phil Simms New Jersey North South High School All-Star Football Classic Executive Committee, our thoughts and prayers go out to all families impacted by Covid 19. We look forward to bringing the New Jersey football community together in 2022 and wish good health, good luck and continued success in the future to our All-Star players.
