Argento was selected as a defensive lineman. He was named a GameTimePA first-team all-star on both offensive and defensive line. On the defensive side, he finished with 85 tackles and three sacks.

Goff earned a spot on the team as a running back, and Jacobs will play as a defensive lineman. Both players were named second-team all-stars by GameTimePA, with Jacobs earning the nod for his work on the offensive line.

The East/West All Star Game was founded as a sister game to the annual Big 33 game to allow more players to participate in such a showcase game.
