    Talented players to clash in Friday’s 20th annual All-Star game, including four San Diego State signees, as South tries to continue recent streak.

    SAN DIEGO – The North will turn to two future San Diego State defensive players Friday to prevent the South from winning their fourth Alex Spanos All-Star Classic in five years.
    The 20th annual Alex Spanos All-Star Classic will kick off 7:30 p.m. at San Diego Mesa College as many of San Diego County’s best graduated senior football players get a last chance to compete with each other.
    Outside linebacker Jake Fely and defensive tackle Kenny Galae’i, members of Oceanside’s Division I State Football Championship Bowl team, will play for the North. Future Aztecs Mahbu Keels (cornerback, Mission Bay) and David Lamar (wide receiver, Madison) will attempt to secure bragging rights against their teammates at SDSU.
    The North roster includes Boise State signee Troy Ware (receiver, Vista) while the South boasts a pair of Fresno State commitments in Lester Fontenette (quarterback, Madison) and Victor Dean (wide receiver, Lincoln).
    Chargers fullback Mike Tolbert[​IMG] and defensive end Vaughn Martin[​IMG] will serve as honorary captains and the Charger Girls will perform at halftime.
    Tickets for the Spanos Classic are available at the gate. They cost $8 for adults, $5 for ages 5 to12 and is free for those 4 and younger.
    The Alex Spanos All-Star Classic is the longest-running all-star football game in Southern California. Proceeds go toward events that the High School Coaches Association stages throughout the year. The event first featured Class 2A against Class 3A, but changed to its current format in 1995. The North leads the overall series, 9-6.
    Lincoln’s Ronnie Yell scampered for a 71-yard touchdown last year as the South won, 10-6. North receiver Mikey Head (Patrick Henry) was named MVP with six catches for 62 yards.
    Several NFL alumni have played in the Spanos Classic, including safety John Lynch (Torrey Pines), defensive lineman La’Roi Glover (Point Loma) and linebacker Donnie Edwards (Chula Vista).
