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.”
