Due to the COVID-19 situation, as well as state and local limitations on social gatherings the 2020 BeYOUnion.com Kansas vs. Missouri All-Star game was canceled.
The game was scheduled for Thursday June 11 at North Kansas City High School. Olathe North’s Chris McCartney was to lead the Kansas team and North Kansas City’s Leon Douglas was set to lead Missouri.
The Greater Kansas City Football Coaches Association President Mike Zegunis said it wasn’t an easy decision for the association.
“After much deliberation, the GKCFCA Board members decided to cancel our MO/Kan All-Star game,” Zegunis said. “We are saddened that we cannot put this event on due to Coronavirus Pandemic. We are all looking forward to the day we can get back out on the football field with our student-athletes.”
BeYOUnion is an amazing title sponsor of the event and agreed to purchase letterman’s jacket patches for every participant. Players were allowed to pick up their patches from their respective head coach (Leon Douglas–MO Coach, Chris McCartney–KS Coach).
Certainly unfortunate circumstances for these young players, we believe that regardless of the game being played or not, it is a tremendous honor to be selected to this team and applaud them for their hard work.Published
