South Jersey’s top senior high school football players came together on Thursday, June 25 at Rowan University in Glassboro, to take part in the 19th annual Adam Taliaferro Foundation All-Star Football Classic. Seniors from Atlantic, Burlington, Cape May and Cumberland counties comprised the Blue Team, while seniors from Camden, Salem, and Gloucester Counties comprised the White Team. Players from Camden Diocese high schools were Paul VI’s Sean Laughlin and Glen Hutton, Camden Catholic’s Tom O’Neill and Jahseer Bronson, Gloucester Catholic’s Harry Amwake, and Bishop Eustace’s Steve D’Alesandro for the White team, and St. Joseph’s Austin Regalbuto for the Blue Team. The final score was 30-18, in favor of the Blue Team. The all-star game is named after former South Jersey high school player Adam Taliaferro, who suffered a spinal cord injury while playing in a game for Penn State in 2000. After defying doctors’ expectations and recovering, Taliaferro graduated from Rutgers School of Law in Camden last year.
