The 32nd Annual Kansas 8-Man All-Star Games are being held this Saturday at Trojan Field in Beloit. 80 of the top players in the state will check in to camp today and prepare themselves for the contests. The 8-Man DII All-Star Game will be first on Saturday morning, with kickoff at 10:00. Pregame coverage begins at 9:30 on KD Country 94 and the 8-Man All-Star Game Radio Network, which is also online at www.8manallstars.com.
One of this year’s participants will be Drew Beam from Rock Hills High School. Beam was one of the leaders for the Grizzlies in his senior season, as they went 7-2 and fell just one win short of the 8-Man DII playoffs.
Beam racked up 890 all-purpose yards, which included 394 receiving yards. He also had 11 total TD, which included seven receiving scores and two kickoff returns for touchdowns. He also caused problems for opposing offenses from his DB position. Beam led the Grizzlies with 89 tackles, with seven tackles for loss and a fumble recovery.
Beam is looking forward to the opportunity of playing in the 8-Man All-Star Game and playing with some of the players he had to go against in his high school career.
After the 8-Man All-Star Game, Beam is set to join the United States Army and wants to specialize in Military Police.
