The Almaden Valley Rotary Club was proud to present the Annual Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Football Game, the Silicon Valley Youth Classic. This year was our 28th year of honoring graduating senior high school football players. The game was played Wednesday, July 24th at San Jose City College.
This year's game was a big success. The South beat the North, 19 - 15. Read the Mercury News article about the game.
Just one of the reasons that we as Rotarians are involved in this game was recognized at our recent noon meeting. Charlie and Lucy Wedemeyer came to our meeting to speak and receive a check from the past game. Charlie and Lucy give inspirational talks to young people all over the world.
Congratulations to the Head Football COACHES, Mark Krail of Pioneer High School for the South; and Earl Hansen of Palo Alto High School for the North. The coaches are responsible for selecting their players and conducting their practices and the game.
All the coaches and players were honored at the Banquet on Monday, May 13th. The featured speaker was San Jose State Coach, Fitzgerald Hill, who was introduced by John Ralston. Lucy and Charlie Wedemeyer also spoke to the players. The pictures taken at the banquet are used for the game program and have also been uploaded onto each of the player's webpage. The player information is on the 2002 Roster. And the rosters have a link to each player's biographical information. Player's, check out your web page. And check out the Rosters of past years.
We had a great turnout of the San Francisco Gold Diggers and high school cheerleaders this past year. We will always be looking for commitments from high school cheerleading groups in the future. Check out the cheerleader information.
Thanks to all the SPONSORS of the past. We will always be looking for a few large sponsors in the future. We have been blessed with many smaller sponsors that have made this game possible and allowed us to donate to many charities over the past years.
One of the primary charities is ALS. Charlie Wedemeyer has been an inspirational representative and has been a part of the Santa Clara County All-Star Football since ..... Read all about his story.
