North Callaway's Jordan Delashnmutt played for Team Gold in the Lion's Club All-Star Football Game over the weekend in Warrensburg. According to Chris Bowie of the Boonville Daily News,:

"The annual affair was created in order to benefit the Missouri Lions Eye Research Foundation (MLERF), and has raised over $200,000 for this statewide Lions project. It now supports Missouri Lions KidSight, an offshoot of MLERF.
