    We heard rumors from scouts that there might be one in Arizona and now there is an article online talking about it.

    TEMPE - There's the Senior Bowl. There's the East-West Shrine Game. And now there's the Eastham Energy College All Star game to be played at Sun Devil Stadium on January 23, 2011; the first time a college all star football game has been held in Tempe.
    The first annual game was founded by AZ Sports Group, LLC and will feature 90 players whose college eligibility has run out.

    "If you look at the tradition and what you've done in the past, it only made sense to bring something that's never been here before," said Jerry Ippoliti, founding member of AZ Sports Group.

    The teams will be divided geographically by East and West with one of the teams called "Stars" and the other team "Stripes" to give it a military theme.
