TINTON FALLS - The Shore Football Coaches Foundation unveiled the players who will be participating in this summer's U.S. Army All-Shore Gridiron Classic at its annual banquet on Sunday at Gibbs Hall.

The latest edition of New Jersey's oldest high school football all-star game, which began in 1978, will be at 7 p.m. on July 17 at Brick Township High School. The top seniors from Ocean County will take on their counterparts from Monmouth County. Before the game, the annual Gridiron Classic 7-on-7 championship will be held with the winners from each county squaring off.

The rosters were selected by the SFCF based on players selected to first-, second-, and third-team All-Shore in the fall as well as All-Division. Ocean Township head coach Don Klein, who led the Spartans to a 10-1 season, the Class B North title and an appearance in the Central Jersey Group III semifinals, will coach the Monmouth County squad. Brick's Rob Dahl, who led the Green Dragons to the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group IV crown for their first sectional title since 1994, will coach the Ocean team on his home field.

The inspiring story of Anthony Starego, the Brick kicker with autism, will also have another chapter as he will be a kicker for Ocean County and play on his home field one last time. He will be the first special needs player to participate in the 36-year history of the game.

Here are the rosters and coaching staffs for the game.
