  • A pair of players from the 2012 Rolla High School football team are scheduled to participate in the 12th annual Sertoma Grin Iron Classic All-Star Football Game, to be held Friday, June 7 at JFK Stadium in Springfield.
    Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
    The Sertoma Grin Iron Classic is an all-star football game involving recently graduating seniors from the southwest Missouri area. Proceeds are given to the Ronald McDonald "Tooth Truck," a mobile dental unit that provides care for at-risk children. The "Tooth Truck" has helped more than 13,000 children during the last 11 years.
    Alex McCormack and Michael Steelman, two key players from the Rolla Bulldogs' offense last season, are on the East team's roster for the Grin Iron Classic.
    McCormack is listed as a tight end on the East squad while Steelman, although a quarterback last season, is listed as a wide receiver for the all-star game and could also be used as a tight end and linebacker.
    McCormack (6-4, 205) caught 31 passes for 587 yards and seven touchdowns for the Bulldogs last season. He is currently a member of the RHS track team and is scheduled to compete in sectional meet action this weekend.
    Steelman (6-0, 200) was Rolla's starting quarterback last season, rushing for 514 yards and eight touchdowns while passing for 904 yards and eight TDs. This past week Steelman competed in the Missouri Class 4 Golf State Tournament.
    Also on the East roster are DB Dylan Newcomb from Waynesville; QB Cory Simpson, LB Jacob Voorhees, WR Justin Barnabe, RB Murphy Ward and LB Chase Nugent from Camdenton; DL Kaden Miller from Houston; WR Aren Martin, QB Hayden Bracket, RB Brock West, OL Tyler couch; LB Shawn Dalangin and K Andre Smith from Lebanon.
