The 68th OVAC Rudy Mumley OVAC All-Star Charity Classic is a week away at Wheeling Island Stadium, and the players, coaches, cheerleaders and band members are in place at Bethany College for a weeks worth of preparation.
Two of the winningest small-school coaching staffs will be matching wits.
The West Virginia All-Stars are coached by the Wheeling Central staff, and head coach Mike Young, who is making his third appearance in the game, but first as the head coach of West Virginia. He was the head coach and assistant coach from his days at St.Clairsville High School.
The Ohio squad is being coached by Shadyside's Mark Holenka, who led his Tigers to another Ohio playoff berth last season, after a perfect 10-0 regular season.
Ohio won last year's game 33-14, snapping a two-game winning streak by West Virginia. West Virginia won the 2011 game 24-3, and the 2010 game 24-14. Ohio leads the all-time series 42-24-1.
Kickoff is set for 7:05 next Sunday night at Wheeling Island Stadium.
