Some high school football players need little reason to pull on pads and a helmet to get out and play.
The graduated seniors in the annual Eddie Meath All-Star Game also have a worthy cause.
Funds raised during this year’s game, 2 p.m. Sunday at East Irondequoit Eastridge, go to the Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Organizers of the game, including members of the Section V football committee, have donated proceeds for years to the hospital that serves children from a 17-county region.
Tickets are $7 for the 34th edition of the charity game.
