(WARRENSBURG, Mo.) A week of two-a-days for some of Missouri's best high school football players was capped off by the 2013 Lions All-Star Game at the University of Central Missouri on Saturday.

Fueled by four touchdowns from former Maryville quarterback Jonathan Baker, the Gold squad played the Blue squad to a 26-26 tie. 

Baker was just one of seven state champions on the field Saturday. The Class 3 Champion Spoofhounds were also represented by head coach Matt Webb, RB/DB Derek Stiens, and TE/DE Tyler Tripp.

Class 1 Champion Hamilton sent the tailback tandem of Derrick and Devan Hughes along with WR/DB Jalen Richman, DE/LB Kolby Reeder, and OL Matthew LaPiana. 

The St. Joseph products contributed to the score beginning with Baker finding former Central Indian and future Missouri Western Griffon Chad Bruder for a 44-yard touchdown strike.

Lafayette graduate Jurrell Green also found the end zone on a sweep in the second half. Former Irish teammate DL/LB Austin Drennen and Bishop LeBlond RB/LB Austin Dawkins took part as well.
