The North-South All-Star football game has found a new sponsor that allows the longtime event another year on the Grand Strand. The state's electric co-operatives will team up to bring the "Touchstone Energy Cooperative Bowl - North/South". The All-Star game has taken place on the Grand Strand since 1948. The deal is a one year sponsorship with game organizers hoping for a long term arrangement.
The other big headline from the press conference is the change to South Carolina's Mister Football. The award, given to the top high school football player in the Palmetto State, will now be presented at halftime of the North/South game. Previous years had the award presented on the Friday night before the game at the North/South awards banquet.
The 2013 Touchstone Energy Cooperative Bowl is set for December 14th at Doug Shaw Stadium in Myrtle Beach.
