For many seniors, the end of high school football season means the end of their football career. However, top performing seniors who have had a strong career and show strong athletic potential have the opportunity to showcase their skills to play at the next level. One of these opportunities is the Xenith All-Star Game powered by Legacy.
The 2nd annual Xenith All-Star Game powered by Legacy was held this past Sunday, December 1st. Some of the most talented players in the Michigan high school football landscape gathered at the Legacy Sports Complex in Brighton, Michigan to showcase their skills in front of a full crowd and live broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit.
Outfitted in industry-leading protective gear like the Xenith Shadow and Xenith Element Shoulder Pads, athletes took their skill to the gridiron in a last chance effort to showcase their skills at the high school level. With high stakes and big time attention, the bar was set high and the energy was there to match it.
Players received coaching expertise from some of the most elite football players in the game. Names such as Former Detroit Lions running back, Joique Bell, and former Detroit Lions wide receiver, Herman Moore were some of the coaches leading these elite high school players. This provided a unique opportunity for these football players to to tap into the wealth of knowledge these football minds possess and learn from it as they grow in their pursuit of the game.
In addition to providing a growing experience for athletes, Xenith also benefits from games such as these. In an interview with Fox Sports Detroit, Ryan Sullivan, our CEO, discussed how partners like the Legacy Center in Brighton make incredible opportunities for committed athletes like these possible.
“They truly put on amazing events, and the opportunity for these athletes to play another game as high school seniors is really something special and something that we’re really proud to support.”
