HIGHWOOD – The 6-Man all-stars reported to Highwood High School in advance of the 22nd annual all-star classic on Saturday.

While coaches agree this is one of the more talented groups in recent history, rivals must still learn to become teammates. Some of the players have only heard of — never actually seen — some of their new teammates, so a big part of the week is spent bonding and making new friends.

“It’s a lot different. Usually you just see these guys at the end of the game shaking hands, and here you get to hang out with them,” said North Star’s Devon Miller. “You get to bond, for sure. We’re stressing team this week rather than individual, so it’s fun to just come together as a team and see what you can do at the end of the week.”

“It’s been fun, it’s been fun getting to know these guys. There’s only like three kids from our conference on the team, so I don’t really know a lot of these guys, but it’s been fun getting to know them,” said Bridger’s Colter Zentner. “(Bridger coach Mike Mathis) has been saying how you make lifetime friends at this game, and I hope to do that.”
