The pro football players will face off against the Nevada Union Miners varsity boys and girls basketball teams this Saturday. Boys basketball head coach, Jeff Dellis, says it’s a win-win for both the high school and the 49ers.

It’s a closely guarded secret which 49ers will be making the trip. Last time it was a mix of retired veterans and rookie players.

Dellis said it was great event and a lot of fun for everyone. The boys and girls teams alternate quarters against the 49ers.
Prior to the game there is a meet and greet where players and fans get an opportunity to spend time with the pros. Dellis says that Guy McIntyre gave an inspiringĀ  talk to the group.
