SAN ANTONIO — Navarro Panther stalwart Brody Whitson donned his shoulder pads and helmet one last time as a high school football player Saturday evening after the senior took part in the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game at the famed Alamodome.

In front of a monumental sold-out crowd, 115 of the top local high school football players suited up for one last swan song in the 44th anniversary of the competition. More than 60 high schools were represented in the showcase, which offered senior student athletes an opportunity to both enhance their visibility to college coaches and perhaps receive a scholarship after to play on the next level.
