Updated: South roster for O.C. All-Star Game


First-team All-County selections Brenden Schooler of Mission Viejo, Hayden McGinnis and Chris Evagues of Tesoro and Vlad Dzhabiyev of San Clemente are among the South roster selections for the 57th Brea Lions Orange County All-Star Game on July 8 at Orange Coast College.

South coach Mike Maceranka of Laguna Hills also picked Fountain Valley defensive tackle Keiti Iakopo for the 35-player roster.

Schooler, an uncommitted wide receiver/safety, played a key role on Mission Viejo’s CIF-SS West Valley Division and CIF State I-AA title team that went 16-0. The West Valley defensive player of the year didn’t sign in February but continues to be recruited, Diablos coach Bob Johnson said Friday.

“He’s the biggest overlooked guy I’ve ever had,” Johnson said of Schooler, who is having a strong track season.

Evagues will join Iakopo on the defensive line, while Dzhabiyev is an all-purpose player listed on South defense. McGinnis was the first-team All-County kicker in the fall and also will punt.

The South’s quarterbacks are Nick Chapman of Aliso Niguel and Neil Boudreau of University.

The North roster was released last week. The South won last year’s game, 30-20, to take a 27-26-3 lead in the series.
