Los Altos High’s Vincent Colodny hauls in a touchdown pass in front of a South safety in last week’s all-star football game.

Los Altos High’s Vincent Colodny didn’t check off everything on his to-do list for last week’s 44th annual Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Football Game – his North team wasn’t able to beat the South – but the tight end did make a touchdown catch.

“That was exciting,” Colodny said of scoring the North’s lone TD in the showcase for the county’s top graduated seniors, which the South won 17-7 July 18 at Los Gatos High. “It was one of my goals. I wanted to win, too, but it was a lot of fun tonight no matter what. I had a good time.”

Stars come out tonight

Los Altos High’s Vincent Colodny, catching the ball, is slated to play for the North in tonight’s all-star football game.

Although tonight’s 44th annual Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Football Game will be played at Los Gatos High instead of Levi’s Stadium, which hosted it the past three years, locals participating in the showcase for the county’s top graduated seniors don’t seem too disappointed.

“I’m still pretty excited,” Los Altos High tight end Vincent Colodny said. “It’s not Levi’s, but it’s not the end of the world for me. I’m not torn up about it – I just want to play.”

Saturday’s Central Coast Section Open Division II football final came down to bold moves – Serra High made them throughout the game and St. Francis High’s daring attempt at the end came up just short.

After scoring a touchdown on Reed Vettel’s 19-yard pass to Evan Williams with 1:26 left, the Lancers opted for the two-point conversion to pull ahead of the Padres rather than kick the extra point to tie them. Vettel, rolling right with pressure coming, threw a pass to fullback Opeti Fangupo that fell incomplete.
