One of Peabody’s own will grace the field during the 29th annual Kansas 8-man All-Star Football game at 10 a.m. Saturday at Trojan Field in Beloit.
Xavier Jabary will play for the East squad. He was selected because of his statistics, accomplishments, and honors and was named the district defensive MVP this year with a career-high of 19 tackles in a single game. He was also named all-league offensive and defensive line MVP for the past three years, and all-district offensive and defensive line player the last two years.
Jabary also was selected to the 2013 Marion Classic All-Tournament basketball team. He was also involved in forensics, student council, business professionals of America, voices, and FCA.
He is the son of Larry and Karen Larsen and plans to attend Butler Community College in the fall and eventually earn a degree in music technology.
