In addition to the coaching school and awards banquets that highlight the week, all-star contests will also be held in baseball, softball, boys’ and girls’ soccer, volleyball and boys’ and girls’ basketball in addition to football, the oldest of the all-star contests. Other rosters will be announced later.
