The Kankakee Valley was well represented at the 46th annual North/South All-Star football game. Winamac coach Tim Roth was honored with being named the head coach of the North team which also included Zach Shidler of Winamac and Matt Hurford of Culver. On an incredibly warm evening both Hurford and Shidler saw a considerable amount of playing time throughout the game, which ended with the South winning 27-6. While Hurford played his usual defensive end position, Shidler lined up as a wide receiver and had a pass reception in the 4th quarter. Despite the outcome of the game, Roth, Shidler, and Hurford were all smiles afterwards and acknowledged that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that they will never forget. As part of the all-star week, both teams spent time with kids at Camp Riley for Youth with Physical Disabilities where they spoke with the children, played games and even joined in sing-a-longs. Former North Judson-San Pierre coach and current head coach at New Prairie Russ Radtke was also in attendance and was honored at halftime for 40 years of coaching service in Indiana high school football.
