Marjory Stoneman Douglas football had its head coach and star running back selected for the Miami-Dade vs. Broward All-Star Game.

Held at Miramar Ansin Sports Complex, the game features Quentin Short and Clayton Cannon Jr. Short coaching the offensive line for Broward after leading the Eagles to the Regional Semifinals this year. MSD went 7-4 in the regular season and defeated Santalucee Hugh School in the postseason for the team’s first win since 2007.

“It’s a great experience to be able to work with different coaches from Broward and awesome to be able to coach these very talented young men, said Short. “Really enjoyed practice so far this week.”

This past season, Cannon had a record-setting season for MSD, setting the single-season rushing record for the Eagles. He passed Orville Reynolds for the record after rushing for 1,594 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also added 119 receiving yards.
