Chis Ford breaking new ground on Pembroke Academy squad
Because he’s the only Pembroke player ever selected to play in a postseason high school all-star game. Ford, an offensive and defensive lineman, will represent the East in Saturday’s CHaD East-West All-Star Game at the University of New Hampshire.
Ford said he felt “overwhelmed” when he found out he was selected to play in the CHaD game, which features recently graduated high school players from throughout the state. The game, which benefits Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, was played for the first time last summer.
Saturday’s kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. The gates will open at noon.
“I’ve been so excited for this,” Ford said. “I’ve been chomping at the bit to put on pads and get started. I’m excited to see the West lose.”
