EL PASO, Texas - It is the last game many local high school football players will ever play in El Paso.
The annual Greater El Paso Football Showcase will return for the 25th time on Dec. 17 at the Sun Bowl.
Players, coaches, and organizers gathered Tuesday afternoon at UTEP to celebrate the return of the showcase, which features the best of the best in El Paso high school football.
Players are broken up into "East" and "West" squads based on the location of their high school.
For many, making the roster is one of the biggest achievements in their high school careers.
"This game means a lot," said Jorge Hernandez, a wide receiver for El Dorado who will be competing for the East. "It means a lot because it's gonna be our last time playing in El Paso, the last time representing our school."
For some, it's one more shot to have a good game in high school. That's especially true for Franklin quarterback Kaleb Hatch, who was injured against San Angelo Central in the playoffs.
