The local high school football season isn't over just yet.

A new all-star game, matching seniors from much of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties against seniors from the southern end of the Central Coast Section, will be played Jan. 26 at San Jose City College. Kickoff is 7 p.m.

Organized by former San Jose State assistant coach Charles Nash, the Literacy Classic All-Star game will include several All-Mercury News players, including offensive player of the year Ryan Severson of Valley Christian and defensive player of the year Vita Vea of Milpitas.

Mike Machado, who led Valley Christian to a CCS Division III championship last fall, will coach the North.

Steve Goodbody, who took Salinas to the CCS Division I semifinals in 2012, will coach the South. His roster includes five Sobrato players, including brothers Nick and Isaiah Hardy.

Practices for the game, which will generate funds for literacy programs, begin Monday.

Nash organized a similar game in Southern California last year but also wanted one up North.

  • As he looks to next season, Machado apparently won't have to search far to find a replacement for quarterback Jay MacIntyre, who has moved with his family to Colorado, where his dad, former SJSU coach Mike MacIntyre, is now the coach at the University of Colorado.

    Machado noted that he has a quarterback who lives down the hall from him -- his son, Michael.

  • Gunn's wrestling team made a statement last weekend, finishing first at a Bianchini Memorial Invitational tournament that included highly touted Palma and 30 teams overall.

    Gunn finished with three champions -- brothers Eric and Ian Cramer at 132 and 138 pounds, respectively, and Cadence Lee at 102 pounds. The Titans had nine medalists overall.

    "I keep getting pleasantly surprised by how well we're doing," said coach Chris Horpel, who is in his 10th season.

    Gunn had not won the tournament in 39 years, Horpel said. Back then, it wasn't called the Bianchini Invitational.
