All-Star Weekend is a weekend full of festivities to be held Sunday October 3rd at North Park. The day will have a variety of football events, exhibitions, and performances throughout the day, and the League All-American Team vs. Coaches is the final event.
PNL Rookie Game
The game was created as part of All-Star weekend in 2014 and was called the East vs. West Game. The rosters were built similarly in number, but were filled out entirely by first year players from the Eastern and Western Conference. They play a full game of football with two 20-minute halves. To spice things up we alter coaches and players. The coach that normally coaches one team during the regular season, will coach a completely different group of kids during the Rookie Game. This year for the 2021 Rookie Game, we will announce captains, and they will draft their teams.
The Senior Bowl is the second all-star game played during All-Star weekend, which showcases the best NFL Draft prospects of those players who will be moving to the older division the following season. First played in 2012 where the league broke up each division to see which division would reign supreme. The format has only two quarterbacks per team that can only play quarterback for one half of the game.
In November 2011, the first PNL Pro Bowl was played. The game brings together the most outstanding players at each position to play what amounts to a competitive scrimmage. This game we're going to mix up the teams and face off against the North Park All-Star Teams.
