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 29th year of honoring graduating senior high school football players. The game was played on Wednesday, July 23rd at San Jose City College and was a big success. The South beat the North, 27 - 25. Read the Mercury News article about the game.

Congratulations to the Head Football COACHES, Shawn Thomas of Leigh High School for the North; and Matt Kiesle of Piedmont Hills High School for the South.

All the coaches and players were honored at the Banquet on Monday, May 12th. The featured speaker was San Jose State Coach, Dr. 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 are now uploaded onto each of the player's webpage. The banquet page also includes lots of pictures taken by Wayne Salvatore. The player information is on the 2003 Roster. And the rosters have a link to each player's biographical information. Player's, check out your web page. Also, check out the Rosters of past years. The more recent rosters have a link to each player's biographical information.

The game was supported by Coakley Heagerty Advertising and Public Relations. And they are did a fantastic job. Kelli Delong, an intern, booked a number of interviews including one of Tyler Mariucci with John Madden. Check out the Media Relations.

We had a great turnout of the San Francisco Gold Rush 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.
