  • While the majority of the Yankton Bucks football senior class has put on the red helmet for the last time this past fall, for three All-Stars, they got to do so one last time at the DakotaDome for the 2022 South Dakota Football Coaches Association All-Star Game Saturday afternoon. Seniors Max Raab (Rob), Bodie Rutledge, and Cameron Zahrbock all suited up for the RED TEAM, and ultimately lost by two. The two teams, RED and BLUE were a mix of all seven South Dakota High School Football Classes. Cameron Zahrbock is going to continue playing in front of Yankton crowds, but with a gold helmet, and on Saturday afternoons for the Mount Marty University Lancers. Max Raab will also be playing on Saturday’s but in Mitchell, having committed to Dakota Wesleyan University.
