SUGARLAND, TEXAS (December 14, 2011) Playing in front of a sold-out crowd at Fort Bend Christian Stadium, the South squad jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, downing the North team 21-6 in the bowl.

Private high school football players from around the Lone Star state gathered in Sugarland for the only post season all-star game in Texas.

The South first got on the scoreboard in the first quarter when quarterback Blake McKenzie (Corpus Christi John Paul II) found Jason Groll (Cypress Community Christian) open and connected on a 30-yard pass for a touchdown.

They raised their lead to 14-0 on a second quarter pass from quarterback Grant Robinson (Katy Faith West) to Chance Gray (Concordia Lutheran)

The North finally got on the scoreboard when quarterback Earnest Evans (Westbury Christian) scampered 40-yards for the North’s lone touchdown.

The South would add an insurance touchdown late in the game when Groll took the ball and rushed five-yards for the final score of the game.

The game was actually a defense battle, as the South constantly put pressure on the North’s offense; forcing six interceptions while recovering a fumble.

The game was well received by the players, fans, and sponsors and the second edition of the game is scheduled for December 8, 2012 at Fort Bend Christian Stadium.

The game was the brainchild of Ronald Oswalt, who is the CEO of Sports Marketing Experts.
