Highly decorated coaches and more talent rich neighborhoods add excitement to an established all star game.
The PrepStar California Classic will take place Sunday, January 29, 2012 at the Home Depot Center in Carson. As a new twist, there will now be a total of three (3) all-star games in full pads outfitted by adidas:
· Game 1 – North 8th graders (Valley Youth/PYFL/Gold Coast) vs. South 8th graders (Snoop League/OCJAAF)
at 12 p.m.
· Game 2 - L.A. City Section vs. San Diego Section at 3 p.m.
· Game 3 - CIF Southern Section North vs. CIF Southern Section South at 6 p.m.
For the past two years Plays and Grades, Inc. has run the original game at Birmingham High. Now, B2G Sports and PrepStar Magazine, both pioneers and experts in college recruiting, are also on board to run the event. The three companies will also hold an Underclassmen Showcase the day before the games on Saturday, Jan 28 at the same location to identify the next crop of high school that could use some recruiting exposure.
US Army All-Americans Kevon Seymour of Muir HS and Brandon Beaver of Dominguez HS are among the prep stars who have agreed to play. Arizona State commit CJ Dozier of Chaparral HS (Murrieta) will represent the Southern Section South team and has already expressed, "We're going to kill ‘em!"

Southern Section South Head Coach: Jim Kunau – Orange Lutheran HS (Orange, CA)
