High School Football All Star Game Brings Attention to College Prospects


By Brittany Bivins

There's a lot of talent gathering at Montgomery's Cramton Bowl. On Thursday night, some of the top high school athletes in the state will face off in the annual all star game, and for many, big dreams are on the line.

Many of the players taking the field are rising seniors, some of them we spoke to say they already have committed to play football at the college level. Others are still looking to find a scholarship and a team.

We're told between 15 and 20 recruiters from schools all across the region may be there. They're hoping to find promising talent they may miss in the regular season.

"We've got kids who come down here who maybe didn't have a scholarship who maybe needed one more game to get a good luck and get an opportunity, they've come here and shown their talent and had a chance to go to college and play," said high school coach Frederick Newton.

"This is pretty much a proven ground, because most of us know where we're going next year, it's just proving to ourselves and our college coaches that we're ready to take the next step," said Waid Miller, a senior playing in the game.

The game wraps up a week of events for the Alabama High School Atheletic Association.
