Throughout the years, the states of Pennsylvania and Maryland have produced some of the best college football talent around. Before they become college stars, though, they make their marks at their respective high schools, and before they head off to their campuses, they partake in one of the best high school football all-star games in the country, the Big 33 Football Classic.
The Big 33 Football Classic features the very best high school football talents from each state going head-to-head against one another in their final high school contest before they join their colleges.
This game has quite the alumni list, and future college stars tend to shine on this stage. For proof of that, you have to look no further than the star of last year’s game, Tyler Boyd, who went on to have one of the best seasons of any freshman in the country at Pitt last year.
In Pennsylvania’s blowout win over Maryland last year, Boyd returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, making his presence felt early. For the entire game, Boyd ended up with 310 total yards, giving everyone a glimpse of how he was going to take over the college football world, which he did.
