57th Optimist All-Star game to be held Saturday at Folsom

Is there a better way to end a memorable high school football season than this, rounding up the best senior stars in the region for one last game?

The 57th Optimist All-Star Football Game is Saturday at Folsom at 1 p.m. in a who's who showcase of outgoing seniors. For 55 years, the fund-raising event for Camp Ross Relles was held in the summer. It moved to the end of the high school season last year in an effort to draw more scholarship players and at a time where football is still fresh on the brain.

Players were nominated by area coaches and The Sacramento Bee. Some players turned invitations down, or were not allowed to compete because their parents wanted them to rest. And some were denied an Optimist chance because their winter or spring coach declined to grant permission.
