The mission of ASCO All-Star Classic is to provide financial assistance to young men that have been permanently injured while playing or practicing the game of football. We are honored to present assistance to the young men who fight a courageous battle everyday of their lives and it is important for our coaching profession and the West Texas area to recognize them and to let them know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. These young men face daunting medical bills and any assistance we can provide as an organization is greatly appreciated and needed.
The ASCO All-Star Classic was started in 2005 when two of West Texas’ standout coaches – Johnny Taylor of Idalou and James Morton (formerly of Monterey) of Midland Lee – wanted to host an annual first-class gridiron event that would serve two purposes.
One was to showcase the talents of the area’s recently graduated seniors from all classifications in an all-star game and give them an experience that they wouldn’t soon forget. The second, and most important , was to use the contest as a means to monetarily assist schoolboys from our area who had suffered severe football-related injuries during game action.
Fast forward and ASCO All-Star Classic has turned into a West Texas tradition, the premier summer football class in the entire state of Texas! In 2015 we adding both girl’s and boy’s basketball games to the classic. Four young men – Joe Beene of Odessa Permian, Tanner Cook of Idalou, Luis Morales of Vega and Jeremy Green of Levelland – have been the recipients of more than $217,000 in assistance and love.
