In the 26th annual Robeson Classic at Paul Robeson Stadium in East Orange, the West All-Stars took a 14-7 decision for their 3rd straight win over the East All-Stars. An interception by the West’s Matt Kuntz returned inside the East 10-yard line led to an Evelon Babbs TD run to open the scoring in the 2nd quarter, but the East evened the score on a Trevion Edwards TD catch to cap a 10-play drive. After a 3rd quarter in which the teams combined for just 1 first down, an East fumble inside their own 5 led to another Babbs QB keeper to regain the lead. As the East tried to tie the game, Kervin Coleman forced another fumble to seal the win.
