Game History

Not unlike many long standing traditions, the City/County All Star Football Game started with a great idea. The brainchild of Thomas J. “Soup” Caruthers and Mike Chupich first kicked off on August 26, 1955 in Ratcliffe Stadium in Fresno. When first played, Fresno had a population of about 60,000, the newly constructed Veteran’s Hospital was surrounded by open fields and the city limits of Fresno and Clovis were 12 miles apart. Now 64 years later, high school seniors continue to be honored when selected to play in what has become the longest running NCAA sanctioned high school all-star football game in California.

In 1955, the County team won the first game in a hotly contested battle and eked out a 7-6 victory, but that was just the beginning. The County set a pattern for winning that continued until 1968.

The game has long pitted the best high school seniors against one another, but to create a more balanced roster -- the game got away from its City versus County roots and evolved into a contest that only resembled geographic rivalries. In a move to restore tradition to one of the most history-laden exhibition games in all of California, the 2011 All Star Game returned to a strictly City versus County roster.
