All-Star Sports Week is Here!

    Competition is already under way for the 6th Alabama High School All-Star week.

    Monday night, the North and South baseball teams split a doubleheader.

   The football All-Stars are practicing this week (the North at Lee High School, the South at Jeff Davis).

   Former Jeff Davis Volunteer Will Evans has a message for the North All-Stars: "My school, my town, we're going to represent," Will says. He's just one of many Montgomery players who are representing the Capital City. Everywhere you look, you see Volunteers, Generals and Poets.

    Even the coach, J.D.'s Steve Bailey, is a hometown guy. Bailey says, "We're real proud to have them here. We've got some great athletes in Montgomery, and we don't have to go far to find people."

    Carl Duncan, a former Sidney Lanier star who will attend UAB this fall, says, "we're reprenting the South, trying to win the game. Try to beat them bad, too. We've lost the last two years. We're going to win this year.

    Former Jeff Davis Volunteer Xaiver Curry says, "We're all having fun out here. Everybody's last chance playing at the bowl, so we're trying to make the best of it."

  This won't be Jamal Cooper's last game at Cramton Bowl. The big Lee lineman is staying in town to play at Alabama State, but first, he'd like to return the bragging rights to the South.

   Jamal says, "We want to win real bad, because the North has won the past couple years. I'm kind of excited, because all my friends and fans will get to see me play all the time."

   The North-South All-Star game kicks off Friday night at Cramton Bowl.

  One $5 ticket gains admission to all of the competition this week. Softball on Wednesday. Volleyball and basketball Thursday, and the football game Friday night.
