(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Garrett Yoon and Dahya Patel have one more high school football game to play as teammates before they continue their playing days at different universities.

The Tigers’ duo was selected to play for the South Team at the 56th Annual Murat Shrine North/South Football All-Star Classic on Friday, July 15 at North Central High School.

Yoon is one of two quarterbacks on the roster, alongside Gehrig Slunaker (Mt. Vernon Fortville).

Patel is part of a four-man wide receiver group that features standouts from Parke Heritage, Evansville Mater Dei and Gibson Southern.

Yoon and Patel will have a familiar face coaching them up, as Tigers offensive coordinator Mike Manford was selected as a coach for the South Team.

The Tigers averaged 41.8 points and 406.8 yards per game in 2021.

Yoon and Patel were a big part of that success, connecting on 15 touchdown passes. Yoon totaled 2,393 passing yards and 26 touchdowns. He added another 858 yards and 13 TDs on the ground.

Patel has put together back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving season with 1,152 yards on 67 catches as a senior.

Yoon will play college ball at University of Saint Francis, while Patel will play at Ball State University.

  • 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.
