NORFOLK Neb. -- The best high school football players and coaches are being recognized, with rosters for the 2023 Northeast Nebraska All Star Football Classic being unveiled Tuesday.

Dave Stoddard, president of the Northeast Nebraska All Star Football Classic Board of Directors, has announced the coaches, officials, and player rosters for the 2023 game. Greg Wemhoff of Elgin Public/Pope John and Mark Brahmer of Pierce have been named head coaches for the tenth Red vs. White game.

Stoddard said his Board of Directors is extremely excited with the selection of coaches for the 2023 game.

“These coaches have had a wide range of success during their coaching careers. We are very fortunate to have coaches of great character, wisdom, and professionalism in this year's game. The coaches have done a great job selecting their roster and planning for this event. We hope all families and football fans involved continue to have a great experience with this game, as there are so many talented players and passionate fans in Northeast Nebraska.”

“It is a great honor to be selected as head coach in this year's game. Northeast Nebraska is well respected throughout the state of Nebraska as a hotbed of football talent," White coach Wemhoff said. "The area is well represented in the play-offs and state championship games on a yearly basis. The area not only has great athletes but some of the best coaches in the state. I look forward to coaching this year's game and working with and competing against some of the finest coaches and athletes in the state of Nebraska."
