(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Three local high school football standouts are going to play in the Indiana Football Coaches Association 2019 North-South All-Star Game.

The IFCA announced its all-star team selections Monday. Picked to play with the South all-stars are Milan’s Orrin Schmidt, South Dearborn’s Axel Bell, and East Central’s Caden Browndyke.

Schmidt, a senior with the Indians, is a member of the Mid-Indiana Football Conference all-conference team. In his senior season, the future Franklin College Grizzly made 29 pass receptions for 533 yards and five touchdowns. On the defensive side, he racked up 34 tackles, three sacks, and an interception.

In a senior season which earned him IFCA Senior All-State honors, Axel Bell tallied 51 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 16 sacks and three forced fumbles.

Browndyke was the sure-footed kicker for the East Central Trojans over the past three seasons. In his senior season, Browndyke was 67/71 on extra point attempts and made eight of 10 field goal attempts, the longest from 50 yards. Like Bell, Caden was previously named IFCA Senior All-State.

The IFCA all-stars will play in the 53rd North-South All-Star Game to be held Friday, July 12 at North Central High School in Indianapolis.

The South squad will be led by head coach Kevin O’Shea of North Central. The North team’s head coach will be Jason Garrett of Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger.

The complete North and South all-star teams can be found on the IFCA website.

  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
