The AHSAA released the rosters for the 35th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Football Classic last week and a number of local high school football stars made the 40-man team that will represent the Yellowhammer State.

 “We are thankful to the selection committee for their efforts in selecting this year’s group,” said Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors and Coaches Association, Brandon Dean. “They went to great lengths to make sure each AHSAA class and district is represented in the selections.  We believe we have assembled a group of student-athletes who will be outstanding representatives for their respective schools, communities, and the AHSAA. We look forward to traveling to Hattiesburg and putting forth our best effort.”

Overall, the squad is comprised of 17 players who have already committed to a total of seven SEC school, four committed to Big 5 conference school and 12 uncommitted.
