Two Webb Football players participate in inaugural 215 Football All Star Classic.
Held Sunday, January 29th at 4PM, the game pitted the best senior football players from smaller schools in San Bernardino and Riverside County against one another. It preceded the 2nd Annual Inland Valley Hall of Fame All Star Football Classic, which featured players from larger schools. Both games will be played at A.B. Miller High School in Fontana. Webb’s players were on the San Bernardino County All-Stars, which beat The Riveside County All-Stars 20-19 on a last second touchdown pass.
