(LIBERTY, Mo.) Like he did often throughout the fall season, North Andrew's Zach Officer found plenty of holes in the defense Saturday.

He scurried for four touchdowns as he and the Red Squad downed the Blue Squad 48-32 in the 5th Annual Missouri 8-Man Senior All-Star Game at William Jewell College.
 
Officer's four trips to the end zone are an All-Star Game record and earned him Most Valuable Player honors on that side of the ball. Three of those came in the first half as Red jumped out to a 26-14 halftime lead.

Worth Country running back Dallas Greenland's one-yard plunge and a scoring strike from Osborn to Jacob Uribe of Norbone made up Blue's first-half point total.

Southwest Livingston's Mason Mehrhoff took home Defensive MVP after intercepting a Reid Osborn pass for a touchdown in the third quarter.

It marked the end of forty-one seniors high school careers, including outgoing state champions Reid and Spencer Osborn, Jacob Heddinger, and Corey Comer of Stanberry. It was also the last time on the sidelines for former Worth County Head Coach Chuck Borey, who won five state championships.
