Even if they didn't win the game, the Wisconsin Football All-Star Charity game was a big success for Prescott lineman Jake Block, Spring Valley defensive back Sean Borgerding, and Plum City linebacker Anthony Ebensperger.

"It was a great week and a great opportunity to become a team with a bunch of strangers in just a few days," said Block, who was added to the team less than 24 hours before the week of practices began in Oshkosh. "My favorite part was meeting everybody and spending time at practice and back at the dorm."

The South team came from behind to earn a 25-20 victory over the North sending the local all stars home without a victory.

"It would have been nice to win the game, but that would have just been icing on the cake," Borgerding said. "The week was an absolute blast and one that I'll remember for the rest of my life."

All three players played for Prescott head coach Matt Smith. Smith coached in his third all-star game.

Ebensperger and Block each plan to play football at UW-River Falls. Borgerding plans to play both football and basketball at UW-Stout.
