YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The inaugural Tim Johnson all-star football game was held Saturday.
Seventy-two kids from all over the Mahoning and Shenango Valleys played in the game at the Watson and Tressel Training Site at YSU.
President Jim Tressel also stopped by for the game.
Johnson says he put the event together for one reason:
“Unity…We’re saying, let’s come together, bring an event together, get the kids together, get the community together. Let’s mesh a little bit and create an opportunity for the kids.”
Johnson says Saturday’s game was also a chance to bring kids to YSU to check out the university.
