Four Iron County football players participated in the recent U.P. all-star football game festivities in Marquette. Pictured, from left, are Forest Park’s Jacob Peterson, West Iron County’s Cayne Rowell, WIC coach Mike Berutti (an assistant on the Red Team), WIC’s Caden Pellizzer and FP’s Hal Hoenig. Rowell’s Red Team defeated the Black Team 42-28 in the game, which was held on June 29. Earlier in the week during the skills competition, Pellizzer won the Quarterback Challenge with a throw of 57 yards, which is the third longest throw in the history of the competition. On Thursday, the players visited Baycliff Camp, a therapy and wellness center serving the needs of individuals living with disabilities. Berutti and the players reflected afterward how impactful the experience of sharing the game of football with the youngsters at Baycliff was. (submitted photo)
