The best high school se- nior football players from more than 50 teams through- out the region are selected for the all-star game. The event pits the North against the South, with the ly along Highway 32. This puts Plumas County teams in the South along with schools such as Chico, Par- adise, Oroville and Wheat- land, while North teams in- clude schools such as Shas- ta, Enterprise, Orland and Coming. Only 28 players are al- lowed on each team's roster, selected from approximately 25 schools that the North and the South each have to chose from. Most teams get at least one nomination, but there are coaches decide not to nomi- nate any of their players for the all-star game, in recogni- tion that other players from other schools would be more deserving. As much of an honor as it is to play in the all-star game, it is an equally great honor to be selected as one of the team's head coaches. Portola head football coach Steve Heskett was chosen to coach the South at this year's all-star game, af- ter the Portola Tigers won the Northern Section chain- pionship this past season. At the end of each season, the coaches who won a league or section champi- onship have their names put on a ballot, and then all the head coaches from the re- gion vote for who they think should coach the all-star game. "Steve Heskett won hands down," said Mike Niehues, the Lions Coordinator for the South. Most schools are repre- sented by one or two players on the all-star team, and the maximum allowed is three, Clinic offered for young archers The California Depart- ment of Fish and Game (DFG) will offer a beginning archery clinic in Roseville for young archers between the ages of 8-17. The Youth Archery Spring Fling Clinic will be held Sat- urday, April 24, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Maya Archery Range, 750 Galleria Blvd. in Roseville. "Archery is a wonderful catalyst to the outdoors, and this sport is a great way to get a peek at a variety of our state's native wildlife species and enjoy the beauty of the landscape," said Lesa Johnston, DFG's Youth Out- door Education Coordinator. "We hope that participation in this clinic will encourage families to discover a side of California they may not have seen before." The one-day clinic will in- clude fundamental archery instruction, an introduction to various types of equip- ment and a discussion about outdoor stewardship. Stu- dents will participate in a supervised outdoor shoot with stationary bull's-eye targets. DFG will co-sponsor the clinic with the California Bowmen Hunters and State Archery Association. The Maya Archery Range is par- tially operated by the Call- fornia State Archery Associ- ation and club volunteers. Separate instruction will be provided for youth (8-12 years old) and teens (13-17). Participants of both age groups must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The cost is $15 for all ages, including the use of the equipment, snacks and lunch. Parents and guardians also receive a lunch at no additional charge. Pre-registration is re- quired and space is limited. Online registration is avail- able on the DFG Web site at For additional information, please call the program coordinator at (916) 322-8933.
