Coaches, did you get the memo about turning in nomination forms?
According to Fred Robledo’s blog, which says according to Hall of Fame All-Star Game organizer Leon Ward, there were several coaches who didn’t return nomination forms for their players. The way the game works is that coaches get nomination forms, they nominate players and then mail them back in. Then, the game coach, in this case BP’s James Heggins and game organizers select which of the nominees make it. But, as Phil Collins sang,“Something happened on the way to heaven.”
A lot of coaches didn’t return the form, and the game coaches/oragnizers are scrambling to fill rosters. Fred posted Ward’s phone number on his blog and even encouraged people to call and nominate themselves. Yowza!!!
All the talk on the westside is that La Canada’s stud running back Lavelle Peterson was one of the notable players not nominated because the game didn’t get forms back from LC. I truly hope that out here, aka football country, we’re not having the same problem. I’ll call Coach Heggins tomorrow and Ward, too. I’m not going to get involved in helping select players for the game, but I will do my best to facilitate the process for these guys. After all, the East streak must continue …
