Pennsylvania Big 33 Roster Announced

Officials have announced the Pennsylvania roster for the 51st Big 33 Classic that will be played in Hershey, Pennsylvania on June 14th. The game, which many consider the best all-star game in America, pits stars from Pennsylvania against stars from Ohio.

One of the footnotes of the game is the fact that there's never been a Super Bowl played without a Big 33 alum involved.

This year the PA stars will be led by Parkland High School's Jim Morgans. The nation's top recruit Terrelle Pryor of Jeannette has been chosen, but there's no word on whether he will play in the game. In the past he has said he won't play.
