Nc'town coach to lead West All-Star team

NEW PHILADELPHIA -- The 33rd annual Times-Reporter Charities All-Star Football Game will be played Friday, July 30, at Woody Hayes Quaker Stadium in New Philadelphia. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

Newcomerstown head coach Eric Brock will be leading the West team while Bob Zontini of Tuscarawas Central Catholic will be guiding the East.

This will be the first time coaching in the T.R. All-Star contest for Brock, who is a Lake High School alumnus, while Zontini, an Indian Valley North graduate, coached the event in 1991 and 1997 while at Indian Valley.

Local players for the West Team from Newcomerstown include Jansen Lenzo and Caleb Rankin; while those from Ridgewood are Nathan Anderson, Austin Bates, Jake Conrad, Troy Jones, Colt Landis, Skylor McQuiston, Jarod Conrad, and James Wiggins. For the East Team, players from Indian Valley include Justin Rentsch and Jared Schweitzer.

The West defeated the East last year, 34-14. The series is deadlocked 16-16 with the West having won 10 of the last 12 contests. Players are selected by The T-R sports staff and the two head coaches, based on area school nominations.

Practices begin the evening of July 21 with the West holding theirs at Newcomerstown while the East will practice at Central Catholic in New Philadelphia.

A total of $278,000 has been raised for charity as a result of the T-R games. The Rainbow Connection again is the beneficiary this year.
