All-Star Game - Special edition of San Antonio Sports Sidelines
San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game
More than one hundred players representing 53 area high schools have been chosen for the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game presented by H-E-B, a showcase of top area talent THIS Saturday, Jan. 6 in the Alamodome. The game is celebrating its 40th anniversary and features athletes committed to play for some of the top universities in the country, as well as players looking for an additional chance to impress college recruiters with potential scholarships to offer before National Signing Day.
Eighty area high schools' varsity coaches were offered an opportunity to nominate players for the game. Selected players are geographically divided into East and West squads based on the locations of their schools. Larry Hill (Smithson Valley) and Keith Kaiser (Boerne Champion) will coach the East and West teams, respectively.
The game would be not possible without our sponsors, who continue to believe in our vision to make this a memorable experience for all participants and fans. Thanks to our presenting sponsor, H-E-B, our game sponsors, Frost, Whataburger, CPS Energy, University Health System, MUY! Pizza Hut, Powerade, Ancira, BSN Sports and Nike and our media partners, WOAI News 4 San Antonio, the CW35, KABB FOX 29, Spectrum and ESPN Radio 1250. The game will be televised locally on the CW35 and broadcast on ESPN Radio 1250.
San Antonio Sports is proud to host this game. Our mission is to transform our community through the power of sport. Proceeds from the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game, presented by H-E-B, will benefit our non-profit organization's kids programs that touch the lives of thousands of children each year.

Student Athletes Go Beyond the Game
San Antonio Sports has worked to develop Beyond the Game, a character initiative that provides a platform to recognize middle school and high school teams that model key values: respect, selfless service, integrity, caring, personal courage and sportsmanship. We partnered with the U.S. Army and Sinclair Broadcasting to raise the awareness of those teams modeling values through mentorship and community service by recognizing them on air during the CW 35's Thursday Night Lights football games.
We are also recognizing four teams at the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game, presented by H-E-B: Alamo Heights High School athletes for their work at the San Antonio Food Bank; Clark High School cross country for their service in Port Aransas after Hurricane Harvey; Lee High School football for helping clear debris after a tornado swept through nearby neighborhoods; and Southwest High School's Fellowship of Christian Athletes for regularly visiting elementary schools in their district to motivate and encourage children to make good grades and stay in school.
