YAIAA football coaches close to finalizing Thanksgiving day all-star game
UPDATE (May 13, 5:02 p.m.): Just checked in with New Oxford coach Matt Muller, who said the YAIAA football coaches will need one more session to hash out all the details on a potential Thanksgiving day all-star game. The contest would be played against an all-star team from the Mid-Penn, Muller said.
Muller called Wednesday's coaches meeting very productive, and said the coaches will meet next on June 7. At that point, the YAIAA football coaches (along with the Quarterback Club of York, which will be involved with the event) will likely release all the details about the game.
Either way, a Thanksgiving all-star contest looks like it's going to happen.

The YAIAA football coaches may finalize plans this week for a Thanksgiving day all-star game to be played against a neighboring conference.
New Oxford coach Matt Muller, president of the York-Adams football coaches, said in a recent phone interview the league just completed a third-round of talks with another local league about the possible all-star game.
"It looks like we might be able to pull off a Thanksgiving all-star game next year," Muller said.
Muller declined to name other league that would be involved, but all signs point to the Mid-Penn. The Patriot-News reported late last week Mid-Penn coaches gave their support to the proposed contest.
The York-Adams coaches could give their final stamp of approval at a meeting this Wednesday, Muller said.
The YAIAA did not schedule a football all-star game for this season. The league had previously played a spring all-star game in 2008 and 2009.
