Saw on Twitter they were announcing rosters. Noticed some juniors were on the team. Thought Ohsaa only allowed seniors to do all star games. I could be wrong but don’t recall any all star games w juniors allowed to play.

per OHSAA This ‘change’ (actually just better defined) to reflect what other non-interscholastic regulations already permit. Most veteran coaches recall the ‘age-old’ regulation that permits seniors only to participate in “All-Star” contests and permits them to play in only 2 of them. But, “All-Star” game is nothing more than a “Non-Interscholastic” event – no different than an AAU game/tournament – if it is not a regular season/tournament OHSAA game then it is a NON-INTERSCHOLASTIC game. Therefore, ANY grade level is permitted to play in these so-called “All-Star” games. But, as with all non-interscholastic events, if it is not taking place in June or July, there is a limit of 2 per team that played for the same school teams the previous season. A school coach could coach up to two of their players on an all-star team. Seniors would not count in that limitation. There is no such limitation by the NCAA or the OHSAA of permitting a player to only play in ‘2’ of these. They can play in as many as they wish.

Mansfield NJ boys all-star game is only for Seniors. I've seen a league girls all-star game allow juniors. Often not enough quality seniors in some leagues, especially when league only has 6 or 7 schools.

many wont agree with me and thats fine, but i think only way you use underclassman is for that reason, not enough seniors.. but i wouldnt leave a senior off it for the purpose of using a talented underclassman.. this isn't the nba
