Montague County has three playing in all-star games

After year's of playing against each other, Gold-Burg's Blake Allen (#3) and Forestburg's Bannon Osteen will be on each other's team as they will represent the east squad in Saturday's all-star game.

The Texas Six-man All-Star games are this weekend as Montague County will have three athletes participating on Saturday.
Gold-Burg’s Tanner Parrish was told on Tuesday of this week he will be on the east squad in the boy’s basketball all-star game. The bouncy post player was the co-most valuable player in the district as he led the Bears by averaging 20.3 points, 11.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks a game.
Parrish also got selected to play in the Oil Bowl in June and scored six points playing against some of the area’s best players, regardless of classification.

Gold-Burg’s Tanner Parrish was a late addition for the Six-man boy’s basketball all-star game on Saturday.


In the football game, two county players, Gold-Burg’s Blake Allen and Forestburg’s Bannon Osteen, will compete in the division II game
Both players will play on the east squad. Allen helped lead a senior heavy Bears team to a playoff birth this season as he played quarterback, safety and punter while earning first team all-district selections at each position.
Osteen played a variety of roles for a young Longhorns team. He earned first team all-district selection at utility back and a second team selection at tight end.
The boy’s basketball game is scheduled to be played at 2 p.m. at D.L. Ligon Coliseum on July 13 after the girls game.
The division II football game will be played at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium in Wichita Falls on the same day.
