Stanford grad Kevin Bishop of Los Altos competes in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.

On the first day of practice for the 43rd annual Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Football Game, the coaches for the North offered their players two ways to approach Saturday’s contest. They could treat it like an exhibition game or more like one that counts.

“They’re leaving it up to the kids, which is great,” said Mountain View High linebacker Race Modderman, one of eight local players on the squad. “We can go out and have fun or try to stick it to the South and beat them.”
