Cam Nolting, #7, proudly represented South Burlington High School Rebel football at the annual North-South All-Star game sponsored by the Vermont Chapter,National Football Foundation. The game was held November 15 at Castleton StateCollege Spartan Stadium before a packed crowd. Nolting’s many tackles intercepted and knocked down the South’s passes. He was one of the key players used by SB Rebels Defensive Coach Chadde Wolf to stop the high powered offense.
Coach Wolf also depended upon the speed of Rice’s quarterback #14 Chris Jensen who was fast enough to disrupt the high-powered South offense, but that meant that Jensen would have to give up his quarterback slot and play defensive end. His willingness to compete for the good of the North team proved to be the key to shutting down one of the highest scoring teams in recent memory.
Adding Rice’s #63 John Boardman and # 64 Nick Richie proved to be the catalyst to a winning combination. The North triumphed by a score of 31 to 28 over a South squad dominated by 5 players from the Middlebury Division 1 State Champs.
Players from every high school football program in Vermont participate. In the 12 year history of this prestigious game, the North and South teams split the wins with six each - but this year the North tipped the scales making it 7 wins to 6 for the South. A first for this game was a participant from a new
football program at Mississquoi High School.
Other South Burlington residents participating were announcer Joel Kynoch, the SB Chain Gang - Mike Holmes, Bob and Chris Gilding and Tom Nolting, Vt. Chapter Board Member and SB youth coach Rene LaBerge, Randy Corey running the clocks and SB player Andrew Dennison as Statistician.
