Trevor Darling paving the way for Dalvin Cook or Joseph Yearby to run the football is a familiar sight for Central.

The whole country will likely get a chance to see it in January with the trio wearing Under Armour All-American jerseys.

The Rockets’ talented rushing duo and their stalwart offensive lineman were formally invited Thursday morning to play in the seventh annual event Jan. 2 at 4 p.m. at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

“It’s a great feeling for us, and we’re all looking forward to handling business and having fun together,” Darling said.

It could be the final game for them playing together if they honor their current oral commitments.

Yearby, who has 812 yards on 90 carries and eight touchdowns, and Darling are committed to the University of Miami. Cook, who has run for 578 yards on 51 carries and scored 13 touchdowns, is a University of Florida commitment.

“Playing in this game will be a moment I’ll remember the rest of my life,” Cook said. “I’m looking forward to having some fun in case it is the last time, but you never know.”

The three talented players have been at the heart of Central’s meteoric rise to national prominence the past three seasons winning two state titles and advancing to the state finals three consecutive seasons.

Central (4-1), ranked in the top five nationally in three major polls, has won three consecutive games since losing to Booker T. Washington and is ranked No. 1 in Class 6A.

“This means a lot because all of the hard work and dedication we’ve put in here at Central,” Yearby said. “I’m hoping to make a big name for myself in this game and get us more recognized.”
