The best high school football players in the state will face off next week in the WFCA All-Star game and central Wisconsin will be well represented.
We'll have a total of 25 area players in the two games played on July 14 in Oshkosh.
The game will be televised live and is actually part of a charity event.
The division one thru three team raised $80 thousand, according to coach Paul Nievinski but that's just one story from the game.
The other is these kids plan on playing all out and the coaches are preparing for some fireworks on the field.
"I can guarantee this much, the north will probably run more exciting plays than ever in the entire all-star game," coach Nievinski said
"People say it doesn't mean anything because it's an all-star game, but it's still competitive," player Clint Nievinski said. "The north is still trying to beat the south, the south is still trying to beat the north.
"It's pretty surreal. It feels like it all went really fast," said player Brent Esser. "It's not going to be the same without all my teammates around me but it's going to be fun being around all my new teammates."
