Gulf Coast loading up on MS-AL, North-South all-star game selections

If there was ever a high school football game that felt like a college football game, it’s the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Classic.

A lot of players will be suiting up on Thursday or Saturday’s next year and chances are some of them will be doing the same on Sundays in the near future.

Today, eight players from the six coastal counties were selected to play in this year’s prestigious event, taking place at South Alabama’s Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile on Saturday, December 10th at 12 noon.

The offense is certainly in good hands with Mr. Football for class 6A Bray Hubbard, the Alabama commit, getting the nod at quarterback alongside Ocean Springs teammate and five-star kicker Bart Edmiston Jr, both former News 25 Student Athlete of the Week, as well as four-star running back and Oregon commit Dante Dowdell who led his Picayune Maroon Tide to last year’s 5A state championship, taking home game MVP honors in the process.

On the other side of the ball, Pascagoula’s Jamarious ‘JB’ Brown, four-star defensive lineman and Ole Miss commit, getting the call as well.

Gulfport offensive lineman Ladarius Jordan, Harrison Central defensive lineman Amarion Ware, Pascagoula o-lineman Jeremy Flora and Picayune d-lineman Zavion Coleman were also selected to play in the all-star game.

Moss Point Head Coach Eugene Harmon was assigned to the outside linebackers and Biloxi Head Coach Katlan French assigned to the defensive backs.

If you thought eight players was good, how about 15 local guys getting picked for the Bernard Blackwell Classic North South All-Star Game.

Starting with a pair from Biloxi, defensive back Damaryion Fillmore and Vanderbilt commit Duran Parish at wide receiver.

Ole Miss baseball commit Kaden Irving, second in the state in passing, gets to throw to his Gautier teammate AJ Phillips at wideout one more time.

Moving onto George County offensive lineman Casey Tynes, Gulfport linebacker Davis Lewis, and then another Ocean Springs duo wide receiver John Paul Coulter and linebacker Keshawn Thomas.

Rounding out the bunch is Pascagoula wide receiver and Mississippi State baseball commit and former News 25’s Student Athlete of the Week Keilon Parnell, Picayune DB Tyran Warren and Poplarville trio o-lineman Kane Edwards, d-lineman Tucker Smith, and linebacker Nakiel Trotter.

Finally, St. Martin’s DK Jenkins, two-way quarterback and DB, and Stone wide receiver Chasden Collins.

Ocean Springs Head Coach Blake Pennock and Poplarville Head Coach Jay Beech named assistants for the December 17th showdown set to kick off at 11:30 a.m. from Gulfport’s Milner Stadium.
