Salamanca Press

The first four rounds of the names of players who will participate in this year’s Big 30 All-Star Charities Classic have been released.

Included in the names are two players from this past years’ New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) semifinalist: Salamanca.

Keegan Hardy was the first Warrior to be announced as a player in this year’s upcoming game. As an offensive and defensive tackle, he was a Trench Trophy Finalist and winner of the Kyle Scott Whistleman Award. Hardy was named to the Western New York Athletics second-team and was the sole representative of the Warriors at the Section 6 Champio-nships and State Qualifiers in wrestling.

Hardy will be joined by teammate Carmine Hoag in the Classic. Hoag led the Warriors in receiving yards in their NYSPHSAA semifinal game against Waverly. A wide receiver and outside linebacker, Hoag has said he is excited for the game to “see what he can learn and improve on.”

Also named to the New York roster was Randolph tackle Jacob Dexter. A 2023 trench trophy nominee, Dexter helped a Cardinals team that had three players finish the season with over 300 rushing yards and one with over 950 from scrimmage.

Cattar-augus-Little Valley fullback and middle linebacker Perry Snyder was also announced as a member of the New York team. Snyder has said that he is excited for the game because “it’s a big game and probably the last time he will ever play football.”

Pioneer has had a total of four players announced as a part of the roster thus far. Nate Butts, Luke Matheis, Jimmy Steppe and Big 30 football Player of the Year Dalton Giboo will all return to the field once more as high school athletes.

Allegany-Limestone’s Kevin Edwards-Hardy, Devon Bish and 8-Man football MVP Michael Frederick have also all been named to the New York roster.

Portville/Cuba-Rushford also had three players announced as a part of the team. Section 6 Class C Offensive Player of the Year Kaedon Holcomb, Nik Manroe and Ethan Coleman will all suit up.

Rounding out the list of names that have been announced so far are Bolivar-Richburg’s Trey Buchholz, Hinsdale’s Cody Barton, Olean’s Ryan Isenberg, Frewsburg’s Caleb Stahlman and Southwestern’s Bo Wendel.
