BUTTE -- The Bob Cleverley 8-Man All-Star Game is set to return on June 5.
The all-star football game was founded in 1984 and had been played each year until 2020 when the game was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 2021 game is back and will pit all-stars from the North and South conferences against all-stars from the East and West conferences. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. June 5 at Bob Green Field on the campus of Montana Tech in Butte.
Drummond-Philipsburg defeated Scobey for the 8-Man state championship in the fall, claiming its third title in the past four years. The Titans and Spartans will be teammates on the Red Team, which combines all-stars from the East and West, for the Bob Cleverley game, with Drummond-Philipsburg bringing Preston Metesh, Ethan Parke and Trevor Morrissey to the game and Scobey bringing Parker Cromwell, Jayce Tande and Payton Leibrand. Drummond-Philipsburg coaches Mike Cutler and JC Holland, who both retired after last season, and Scobey coach Brock Berryhill will be assistants for the Red Team. Alberton-Superior's Jeff Schultz will be the Red Team's head coach.
The Blue Team will feature athletes from the North and South and be coached by Mike White of Shelby. Complete rosters for the Bob Cleverley 8-Man All-Star Game are below.
