Loras College senior football players Dan Badovinac (LB, Inverness, Ill./Loyola) and Nick Holeton (OL, Pecatonica, Ill./Pecatonica) have accepted invitations to play in this Saturday's "Tazon de Estrellas" all start football game coordinated by Global Football. The Duhawk duo will play for "Team Stars and Stripes" in Saturday's noon central time kickoff. 

 

The American squad will play Mexico's CONADEIP All-Stars – college students all stars from the collegiate system. The game will be played in Guadalajara at Tec de Moneterrey's La Fortaleza Azul.

 

There are a total of 26 NCAA Division III schools represented and 27 players from Iowa, Illinois, or Wisconsin schools.

 

This is the 16th year the organization has put together a game south of the border.

 

A year ago, David Zoeckler and Zach Myers played in the game.
