CHaD's Inaugural New Hampshire East- West High School All-Star Football Game Welcomes Athletic Directors and New Players

The Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock announced today the addition of four new players to the New Hampshire East-West High School All-Star Football Game roster, as well as Athletic Directors Jim Shubert and Patrick O'Neil. Team East will now include Charles 'CJ' Wooster of Winnacunnet High School; John Bourk of Pelham High School; and Dylan Andrews of Campbell High School. Team West has included Mike McLean of Franklin High School.

Jim Schubert will serve as the Team East Athletic Director. Jim was an All-State football player at Manchester Central High School, and played in the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl in 1966. He attended Ferrum Jr. College then transferred to Wake Forest University where he played varsity football for two years. His coaching resume spans the course of several decades, including coaching Manchester Central High school to six State Championships, and New Hampshire to a Shrine Bowl Victory in 2006.

Patrick O'Neil will serve as the Team West Athletic Director. Pat was an All-State football player at Trinity High School in Manchester, and played in the 1980 Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl. Pat graduated from the University of New Hampshire, and has been a teacher in the Manchester School System for 28 years. He was part of the coaching staff for four different Shrine Games, and has split his 28-year high school coaching career between Manchester West High School and Trinity High School, helping lead both schools to several post-season appearances.

"We are thrilled to welcome our newest players, as well as to have Patrick and Jim joining the inaugural game. Their level of expertise and community advocacy provides a wonderful addition to both teams and we are honored to have them," said BASC president Nick Vailas, founder of the All-Star Game.
