"We are thrilled to be the title sponsor for the Grange Insurance Indiana All-Star Classic again in 2008," said Phil Urban, President and CEO of Grange Insurance. "And again we are happy to work with the Indiana Football Coaches Association to provide an evening full of activities and an amazing and competitive football game."
For many of Indiana's children with physical disabilities, Camp Riley has become an annual tradition where campers look forward to time-honored recreational activities. Camp Riley is recognized as one of the best residential camping programs in the Midwest available to youth with disabilities. Players and coaches will gain an unforgettable experience at Camp Riley while providing the children with memories and memorabilia they can keep forever. Each of the high school players will be paired with Camp Riley children where they will spend time playing games, getting to know one another and giving the children game jerseys, T-shirts and hats.
Approximately 4,500 fans will be in attendance to watch Indiana high school football "stars" play in this competitive game. Coaches for the 2008 game are Coach Kevin Downey of South Bend St. Joseph's High School who will coach the North team and Coach Derek Moyers of Pike High School of Indianapolis who will coach the South team.
