About the Valley FCA All-Star Football Game

The Valley Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) will host the 2nd annual Valley FCA All-Star Football Game on Sunday, Dec. 8 with kickoff set for 2 pm ET at Bridgeforth Stadium on the campus of James Madison University.

More than 80 football and cheerleading seniors from 18 high schools in the Valley District, Shenandoah District, Bull Run District, Northwestern District and Pioneer District have been nominated to participate.

“We are excited to be hosting this All-Star football game once again,” said Valley FCA Area Director Jason Stuhlmiller. “Last year’s game was a huge success and we are adding a few more elements to this year’s event that will make it even bigger and better!”

A new twist to this year’s game is how the athletes will be chosen. Said Stuhlmiller, “After conferring with last year’s coaches, we decided to change the selection format to a draft style process. This will hopefully facilitate a more even player selection for each team and ultimately a more enjoyable and competitive game.” Head coaches for this year’s game will be Mike Yew (Valley) from Central High School and Chris Fraser (Shenandoah) from Turner Ashby High School.

Other new elements for this year’s event include a youth football All Star game made up of coaches and athletes from the Rockingham Recreation tackle league, community service projects in which All Star athletes will participate, and a Coach’s Development Clinic for all area coaches.

Tickets for the Valley FCA All Star Series Football Game are $10 and can be purchased at the gate on gameday. Gates will open at 11 am at JMU’s Bridgeforth Stadium.
