Three Mason football standouts were among players to lead Ohio to victory in the Big 33 Football Classic Saturday at Hershey Park Stadium in Pennsylvania.
Mason offensive lineman Josh Spencer, defensive back Connor Noe and linebacker Josh Dooley were among the state’s top athletes selected to participate in the Ohio-Pennsylvania rivalry game.
Mason coach Brian Castner served as assistant coach for the Buckeye team.
Now in its 55th year, the game, often described as the “Super Bowl of high school football,” pits high school football stars from the neighboring states and is broadcast on the NFL Network.
Many of the players are recruited by Division I colleges and universities and go on to have professional careers in the NFL, according to the event’s sponsor, the Big 33 Scholarship Foundation.
In Saturday’s game, the Buckeyes edged their way to a fourth consecutive win in a 24-21 overtime victory over Pennsylvania.
“This has truly been one of the top three football experiences of my life,” said Castner. ”To be able to coach in the Big 33 and represent Ohio and Mason football along with three of our players has been truly amazing.”
