Coach Giarmo stated, “I am honored to be selected as one of the coaches for this game. I’ve been involved with this all star game since the beginning, being selected to play in the first Michigan All-Star game in 1981. I know first-hand what an incredible experience this will be for these young men. I am especially excited to be able to coach my son Anthony for one final game.”
