Urda, Knight named to all-star game

Two athletes from the Souhegan Valley were named to the roster of the West team for the 2014 CHaD East-West New Hampshire High School All-Star Football Game.

Milford’s Harrison Urda and Nashua South’s Trevor Knight, who lives in Amherst, were two of 40 players selected to the West team for the third all-star game, which will be held June 28 at 1 p.m. at Saint Anselm College.

This year’s West team will be coached by Paul Lavigne, the former Milford coach who was an assistant for the West last year. Also on the coach staff will be Travis Cote, Paul Drove, Dante Laurendi, Andy Lavigne, Pat O’Neil, Dave Rozumek and Jim Schubert.

Urda was a three-year starter at safety for the Spartans, and had a record of 11-6 in two years as the starting quarterback for Milford before an ankle injury ended his senior season. He was the only Milford player to named to this year’s Division II all-state first team.

Knight, who also played quarterback and safety at South, was the state’s Gatorade Player of the Year and also received all-state first-team honors in Division I. He’s verbally committed to play football next year at the University of New Hampshire.

Other area players making the West roster include Stavros Anagnost (Bishop Guertin), Kelmy Anziani (South), Joe Chimelski (North), Mike Devereaux (BG), Trent Fortune, Jr. (Bedford), Colin Healey (Merrimack), Tom Hurley (BG), Matthew Johnston (Bedford), Robert Lamy (Bedford), John Miller (BG), Anthony Reale (BG), Nicholas Vailas (Bedford) and John Vidal (North). No players from Souhegan or Hollis Brookline were named to the team.
