Three seniors from Lee’s Summit North are among the 43 football players who were selected to represent Missouri for the Kansas vs. Missouri All-Star Game.

Myles Craddock, Jordan Murray and Kendall Thomas will represent the Broncos during the 27th annual contest between Missouri and Kansas all-stars. This year’s game is scheduled to take place June 14 at Leavenworth High School in Kansas.

Craddock — a 5-foot-10, 205-pound linebacker — had a second-most 68 tackles last season for the Broncos, who finished 6-4 for their first winning season since 2001. He was selected to the Suburban Gold Conference first team on defense.

Murray — a 6-3, 200-pound tight end — made 10 catches for 94 yards with a touchdown in North’s ground-oriented offense. He had the Broncos’ second-most receiving yardage and also recorded 55 tackles on defense.

Thomas — a 6-0, 190-pound safety — finished with 61 tackles last season.

The Missouri roster also includes Park Hill’s Ronnie Bell, the 2017 Simone Award winner as the Kansas City area’s top high school football player. Bell, a 6-2 and 175-pound wide receiver, has signed with Michigan.

The BeYounion Kansas vs. Missouri All Star Game is presented by the Greater Kansas City Football Coaches Association. This will be the first time the game has been played in Kansas in five years.

Missouri has won the last seven All-Star Games and leads the all-time series 14-11. One game was postponed.

The Missouri team will be coached by Staley’s Phil Lite, while Leavenworth coach Mark Littrell will guide the Kansas squad.
