Briggs Named to All-Star Coaching Staff

GUADALAJARA, Mexico – Susquehanna head football coach Steve Briggs has been named to the coaching staff of Team Stars & Stripes for the upcoming 2012 Tazon de Estrellas Division III All-Star Game.

Briggs will serve as defensive coordinator under the team’s head coach, Don De Waard of Central College. SU’s head coach is one of five assistants named to the squad who will coach a 50-man Team Stars & Stripes roster of players nominated by head coaches at DIII colleges. The fourth-annual all-star game will be held Saturday, Dec. 15 at 12 p.m. (CET) at La Fortaleza Azul (The Blue Fortress) in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The first round of players selected to the team will be announced this coming weekend.

Team Stars & Stripes is looking to avenge a 45-27 loss one year ago to the home team drawn from the ONCADEIP national conference of private schools in Mexico. Last year Crusaders’ tight end Matt Knouse ’12 was selected to play in the All-Star game.
