College football seniors are once again using the site of the old Blue-Gray game to try to impress pro teams.

The first Raycom College Football All-Star Classic is being held Saturday in the Montgomery stadium that hosted the now-defunct game that was a Christmas Day tradition until a decade ago.

The quarterbacks include Purdue's Robert Marve for the Stripes team and Pittsburgh's Tino Sunseri for the Stars.

The game features an assortment of players from BCS schools and smaller programs.

It also has five players who played in the BCS national championship game, three for Alabama and two for Notre Dame.

Brownsburg graduate Chris Jones, a defensive tackle at Bowling Green, will also play in the game.

The Stripes are led by former Denver and Atlanta coach Dan Reeves. Longtime NFL assistant Jim Bates is coaching the Stars.
