Rosters were released for the 61st annual Orange County North-South All-Star Classic on Saturday, and 10 local high school football players have been selected to play for the South team.

The senior showcase football game will be played on Jan. 25 at Orange Coast College. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Corona del Mar, which went 16-0 in winning the CIF Southern Section Division 3 championship and the CIF State Division 1-A state championship bowl game, received three nominations.

The representatives for the Sunset League champion Sea Kings will be wide receiver Bradley Schlom, linebacker Mason Gecowets, center Tanner Tomlinson and defensive back Zack Green.


Edison, which finished second in the Sunset League and advanced to the Division 3 quarterfinals, also had three players named to the South roster.

The Chargers’ selections were running back and strong safety Tanner Nelson, guard and defensive tackle Mateo Lopez and cornerback Tanner Gunnell.

Newport Harbor advanced to the Division 9 semifinals as an at-large playoff qualifier, doing so behind a strong running attack. The Sailors will have one of their blockers honored, as left tackle Carter Mathisrud received an All-Star nod.

Laguna Beach finished third in the Pac 4 League, but its offense put up big numbers through the air for the second year in a row with Andrew Johnson at quarterback.


Johnson will be joined by his teammate in Jack Pigott, who played both wide receiver and cornerback for the Breakers.

Huntington Beach defensive end Brandon Bova was originally selected to the roster, but he will not be playing in the game. Bova led the Oilers with 11 sacks this season.
