Last year, we saw NFCA Freshman of the Year candidates Alyssa Barrera, Nicole Mendes, Sis Bates, Maggie Balint and more compete in the inaugural PGF High School All-American game held at Bill Barber Park in Irvine, California.

The All-Star game features the most prolific athletes who have signed their National Letter of Intent to premier universities in conferences such as SEC, Pac 12, Big 12, Big Ten, and ACC.

Following the East vs West format, 46 players will compete in the PGF High School All-American game at the conclusion of the PGF 18U Premier National Championship game on July 28, 2017.

The participants were chosen by a selection committed led by All-American Game Directors Derek and Joann Allister of OnDeck Softball with input provided by softball correspondents at Gatorade, USA Today, FloSoftball and PGF.
