The second of the two summer all-star high school football games will be this Friday, July 8, as the 15th Annual Hall of Fame Classic between the New Haven County All-Stars play the Fairfield County All-Stars at 7:30 p.m. at Ken Strong Stadium in West Haven.

A number of NVL players are on the New Haven roster, including Ansonia's Montrell Dobbs, Derby's Zach Salazar, Wilby's Rob Williams, Naugatuck's Ruben Berger, Sacred Heart's Rohan Ifill, and Woodland's Ian Bures. Other local players on the team include Oxford's Nick Donofrio, and Shelton's Cody Kitson, Jon Groth, and Mike Georgalas.
