Alabama All-Stars Report to Hattiesburg for Saturday’s 2015 Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Football Game Riding 7-Game Win Streak

     MONTGOMERY, AL. – One new player joined Alabama’s 40-man roster Monday as the team reported to Hattiesburg, MS for the 29th playing of the Alabama-Mississippi Football Game set to kickoff at noon Saturday at the University of Southern Mississippi’s M.M. Roberts Stadium.
    Park Crossing’s P.J. Blue dropped off the squad due to an injury and was replaced by Opelika High School linebacker Zocario Bridges. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound defensive standout committed to Troy University helped the Bulldogs (12-1) reach the AHSAA Class 6A quarterfinals.
     All-Star head coach Mark Freeman of Thompson High School, has a team that is very talented with at least 17 players already committed to Division I-A college programs.
      Alabama holds a 21-7 edge in the series that has been played each year since 1988 at a site in Alabama. The Mississippi Association of Coaches (MAC) is serving as host for this year’s game. The game will be televised live by AHSAA TV partner Raycom Media over its stations in Alabama and Mississippi. Visit www.pathtotheplayoffs.com to find the channels carrying the contest in each community.
      The Alabama roster, comprised of current high school seniors, is once again outstanding, said Alvin Briggs, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association. 
ead coac      Alabama has won the last seven games with the last four being played at Montgomery’s Cramton Bowl. The game was played at Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium from 1988-2010 with the exception of 2007 – when two games were played in the series.
     Among the players on the Alabama squad are two running backs already committed to SEC schools. Jarrion Street of Hewitt-Trussville, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound running back, has committed to Ole Miss and La’Mical Perine of Theodore, 5-11, 220 pounds, has committed to Florida.  The Gators and Alabama each have three commitments on the squad. The Crimson Tide lists wide receiver T.J. Simmons of Clay-Chalkville, offensive lineman Deonte Brown of Austin and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams of Wenonah. The Gators also list Hoover defensive end Jeremiah Moon and Park Crossing defensive back Jeawon Taylor among their commitments.
    Also selected to the Alabama All-Star squad are Auburn commitments John Broussard of Central-Phenix City and Marlon Davidson of Greenville. Broussard, 6-1, 178, is a defensive back, and the 6-4, 270-pound Davidson is a defensive lineman.
    Other players chosen who have already made verbal commitments are Saraland wide receiver Velus Jones (Southern Cal), North Jackson tight end Austin Cummins (Louisville), Auburn offensive lineman Tyler Pritchett (North Carolina), Spanish Fort offensive lineman Jacob Johnson (Southern Miss), athlete Bailey McElwain of Hewitt-Trussville (Stanford), defensive lineman Darius Whitfield of St. Paul’s (South Carolina) and defensive end Erroll Thompson of Florence (Mississippi State).
     Among the top players still uncommitted are outside linebacker Ben Davis of Gordo and inside linebacker Lydell Wilson of Carver-Montgomery. Davis, the son of former University of Alabama standout Wayne Davis, is rated by most recruiting services as the No. 1 outside LB prospect in the South. Wilson is rated No. 1 inside LB.
     Quarterbacks chosen are Tyler Johnston of Spanish Fort and Tyrell Pigrome of Clay-Chalkville. The two met in last week’s Super 7 Class 6A state finals with Johnston and the Toros (15-0) posting an exciting 31-28 win over the Cougars (14-1). Both quarterbacks had outstanding games with Johnston, who finished his career 35-0 as a starter, earning MVP honors. Pigrome finished his prep career at Clay 29-1.The duo have four state titles between them.
    Johnston is being reunited with his former coach for this year’s game. The Toros won 5A titles in 2012 and 2013 when Freeman served as head coach. Ben Blackmon is the current Spanish Fort head coach. Clay-Chalkville coach Jerry Hood on the Alabama all-star staff. His team won the 6A crown last season.
     Alabama’s All-Stars won last year’s game 36-30 with the game-winning touchdown coming on the final play of the game. Alabama game MVP in 2014 was Kerryon Johnson of Madison Academy, now a freshman at Auburn. Among the recent MVPs have been two Alabama standouts, current Crimson Tide linebacker Rashaan Evans (2013) and current Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon (2011).
