Rockets play in football all-star game

Lions’ donation allows for better camera system

Jason von Heimburg

Cedar Grove-Belgium senior Cameron Kirst continued to terrorize ball carriers, and his teammate Jason von Heimburg returned to his tight end position two years ago at the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association’s All-Star game on July 21.
They helped the South top the North in the small school game, 22-21.
The South came back after falling behind 15-0 in the second quarter.
Melrose-Mindoro’s Victor Ponterio hit a 40-yard field goal with 17 seconds left to win the game.
“Both played really well and played a good amount of time,” coach Dan Schreurs said of his two stars.
Kirst was in on several tackles, and von Heimburg helped spring some runs in a blocking role.
In other Rocket football news, the program received a donation that helped purchase an end-zone camera that has a telescoping device allowing it to reach 30 feet in the air behind the goalposts.
“It allows us to see a completely different view of the game. Seeing film like this will help us in scouting, making changes, and covering areas that need work during practice,” Schreurs said.
It also allows for the expansion of sideline capabilities to include the Hudl Sideline, a program used to film plays and allows coaches to view them seconds later.
Both the Rockets and Cedar Grove-Belgium Broncos youth football program will use the cameras.
“It should be exciting to see how this benefits us,” Schreurs said.
He said he hopes to have it up and running for the Aug. 24 home opener against Mishicot. It’s Broncos and Belgium Lions Night.
