Washington Township senior Tom Hildebrand admitted to feeling a lot of emotion before competing in Thursday's South Jersey Football Hall of Fame Adam Taliaferro All-Star Game at Rowan University.
Unlike many of his all-star teammates, Hildebrand won't be playing the sport in college.
A standout third baseman, Hildebrand has decided to play baseball for Gloucester County College, which recently won the National Junior College Athletic Association Division III World Series.
"This is bittersweet, and it's my last game," Hildebrand said before the kickoff, which was delayed an hour because of rain. "I have truly loved playing football at Washington Township and have enjoyed my time here at the All-Star Game."
