The U.P. High School All Star Football Camp is this week. Seventy-seven players from 38 different schools have a whole week ahead of them, full of activities and a lot of practicing.
Players checked in early Monday morning where they got all of their gear. However, players also brought in non-perishable food items that will be donated to the Beacon House.
It's a food drive they do every year just to give back to a good cause. This year they collected more than 800 pounds of food.
"I think that's a big part of it. There's a lot of sponsors who sponsor this event and stuff like that. So, you know, anything that we can do to give back to the community, all the communities, is big," said R.J. Poirier, East Team (Ishpeming High School).
Players will be split into two teams representing either the west or eastern part of the U.P. They will face-off with the All Star Game, June 29, at the Superior Dome in Marquette on the campus of Northern Michigan University.
