All seven of Louisville's in-state signee's have been named to the 2005 Kentucky v. Tennessee All-Star game, which will be held in Louisville on Friday, June 17th.

On Friday, June 17th at 7:00 p.m., the best high school seniors from the state of Kentucky will square off against their counterparts from Tennessee at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

The players from the Bluegrass State will be attempting to claim a victory for the fifth time in the last six games against the Volunteer State and this year's squad may feature all seven of the Louisville's in-state signee's.

Earl Heyman, Lamar Alston, Mike Donoghue, Blake Boyd, Stephen Garr, Maurice Grinter and JuJuan Spillman have all received their invitation to participate in the game.

"If feels great to be apart of that team," Garr explained. "I wasn't sure I'd get invited or not, so it was a nice suprise."

"It feels pretty good," added Alston. "I was hoping that I'd make it."

However, not all players decide to play in the contest. Prior commitments, such as family vacations, or the concern of injury, keep some away.

Louisville fans are guaranteed to see some, if not all, of the newest incoming Cardinals playing, as ITV has confirmed that Blake Boyd, Lamar Alston and Stephen Garr all plan on playing.

"Yes, I'm going to play," said Garr. "I've already sent my papers back to sign up. It'll be a nice warmup before I start practice at Louisville."

Also, Louisville signee quarterback Lee Sweeney of Friendship Christian High School in Tennessee has been named to the visiting squad.

Congratulations to all of those players chosen.
