BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Treasure Coast nipped the Space Coast 10-7 in the Second Annual Florida East Coast Prep Football All-Star Game that was played on Friday night at Vero Beach High School.
In a fierce defensive battle, the Treasure Coast kicked a late 23-yard field goal to defeat the Space Coast, and evened the All-Star Series at 1-1.
After Space Coast missed a 27-yard field goal in the first minute of the fourth quarter, Nehari Crawford’s 49-yard catch-and-run on a pass from Treasure Coast QB Jordan set up the game-winning field goal.

2015 SPACE COAST ALL STAR FOOTBALL ROSTER
ALL-STAR GAMES PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Coaches and recruiters from all parts of the nation attended the games over the years, and as a result, the Brevard County All-Star Football Game has been directly responsible for dozens of players being offered full-ride football scholarships.
The game, which includes seniors only, replaced the Brevard County North vs. South game tradition, which began in 1996.
The long-running all-star game also gave hundreds of players over the last 16 years the chance to be able to play in one last high school game to cap off their high school careers.
“Football fans are excited to see Brevard high school athletes compete against the Treasure Coast, who has players from a higher classification,” said prep football expert analyst Rae Kameka.
