SOUTHFIELD – Grand Blanc’s Ryder Brotebeck was selected to participate in the Legacy Football High School Senior All-Star Game, a showcase that will bring together the best senior players throughout the state for the final game of their high school careers on Nov. 25. The game, presented by Xenith Football, will take place at Legacy Center in Brighton.
“All of us here are excited to showcase these talented high school athletes as they play the game they love one last time on Fox Sports Detroit,” said Greg Hammaren, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Fox Sports Detroit.
Confirmed players in the All-Star game represent 73 different communities and high schools across Michigan. These seniors were then divided into Team Legacy and Team Legends for the event.
“Legacy Center Sportsplex and the Legacy Football Organization are extremely excited about hosting the 2018 Legacy Senior All-Star Football game,” said Justin Cessante, National Director of Football at Legacy Football. “This is a unique platform for 2019 seniors across Michigan to compete live on Fox Sports Detroit and gain exposure to college programs in their final high school game.”
Brotebeck, who also splits time at running back and quarterback, was selected as a defensive back to the ‘Legends’ squad. He helped lead the Grand Blanc football team to a 5-5 overall record and a playoff appearance. The Bobcats were ultimately eliminated by Lapeer 35-0 in the pre-district round. Brotebeck was a constant force on both sides of the ball for Grand Blanc, as evidenced by his performance in Week 7’s win over Saginaw Arthur Hill. In the 44-0 blowout, Brotebeck ran for 64 yards on seven carries while also throwing an eight-yard touchdown pass.
