White River senior Payne Plaster was in Texas today (Monday, Dec. 20), taking the field against some of the nation’s elite football players.
Plaster, who has climbed in his school’s record book for both his offensive and defensive accomplishments, was participating in the annual Blue-Grey All-American Bowl. The game, with an east-west format, was staged at AT&T Stadium (home field for the Dallas Cowboys), after the Courier-Herald’s press deadline.
Plaster (5-10 and 175 pounds) was listed as one of six running backs on the west squad.
He was one of just two players from Washington participating in the game, joining Steilacoom quarterback Caleb Crider.
Blue-Grey Football was established in 1989 by the father-son team of Gus and Erik Bell. They established the brand to help prep prospects from all over the country receive national exposure and increase their chances of securing a college scholarship.
