MONTGOMERY – Seventeen players already committed to Division I-A schools have been selected to the 40-player Alabama All-Star Team that will face Mississippi in the 30th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Football Game Dec. 10 at Montgomery’s Cramton Bowl.
The roster, comprised of current high school seniors, was announced Tuesday by Alvin Briggs, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association. The annual contest is an event of the AHSADCA and the Alabama High School Athletic Association.
The game was played in Mississippi for the first time in the series last year. The hosts won 28-21 on the Southern Miss campus in Hattiesburg. That win by Mississippi snapped a seven-game winning streak by Alabama, which now holds a 21-8 edge in the series.
“We hope the 40-man Alabama roster selected for this year’s game hosted by the AHSADCA will bring the Alabama-Mississippi Game Championship Trophy back (to Alabama),” Briggs said.
UMS-Wright Coach Terry Curtis, who is serving as the head coach for Alabama, will be coaching a squad full of Division I-A prospects – several still embroiled in national recruiting battles.
The roster, comprised of current high school seniors, was selected through a rigorous process that began last winter, Briggs said. “The selection committee has worked extremely hard to trim down the strong list of nominations to the 40 selected. It is a difficult task for sure, and we thank the committee for its dedication.
“We are excited about returning to Cramton Bowl. This will provide another opportunity for the AHSAA and City of Montgomery to work together to produce an exciting event for local fans as well as our friends from Mississippi and the vast TV and Radio audience that tunes in via Raycom Media’s Alabama-Mississippi TV Network and the AHSAA Radio Network.”
The annual all-star event was played at Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium since its inception in 1988 until 2010. It moved to Cramton Bowl from 2011-2014. It is now on a rotating basis between the two states.
Of the 17 players picked that are already committed, five have selected defending National Champion Alabama: running back Brian Robinson of Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa; offensive linemen Hunter Brannon of Cullman and Kendall Randolph of Bob Jones; defensive back Chadarius Townsend of Tanner; and linebacker Markail Benton of Central-Phenix City. Auburn has commitments from two, defensive backs Malcolm Askew of McAdory and Jordyn Peters of Muscle Shoals.
Three other SEC schools (Arkansas, Florida and LSU) have commitments from players on the roster while Southern Cal, North Carolina, Michigan, Duke, Purdue and UAB have at least one each.
Committed to LSU are defensive lineman Justin Thomas and McGill-Toolen defensive back John Young III. Arkansas has a commitment from quarterback Daulton Hyatt of Etowah, and tight end Zech Byrd of Stanhope Elmore has announced plans to sign with Florida.
Curtis’ Alabama All-Star coaching staff includes Caleb Ross of McGill-Toolen, Ben Blackmon of Spanish Fort, Kelvis White of Mae Jemison, Keith Etheredge of Pell City, Steve Smith of Piedmont, Ed Rigby of Elba and Richie Busby of Fultondale.
The game will be televised live over the Raycom Network of stations in Mississippi and Alabama. The contest will also be broadcast live over the AHSAA Radio Network.

ALABAMA ALL-STAR HISTORY
Alabama leads series 21-8
The Alabama High School Athletic Association Central Board of Control approved returning a record $1.8 million to its member schools under its Revenue Sharing Plan. The action was taken Wednesday at its annual summer meeting in Montgomery.
The AHSAA Legislative Council also met Wednesday.
The Revenue Sharing Plan, approved first by the Central Board in 2009, has returned $9.8 million to its member schools over the last six years. The formula for the distribution of funds includes a differential between classifications and the number of sports played by non-football-playing schools. The plan returns excess funds back to the schools when the AHSAA has at least one year’s working capital in reserve.
The Central Board of Control also approved waiving membership dues for member schools for the 24th straight year – a cost savings of more than $83,000 in 2015-16 and approximately $2 million to our member schools since 1992.
“Returning $1.8 million to our schools through our revenue-sharing plan is certainly important to the financial well-being of our schools,” AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese said. “We are proud to have now returned almost $12 million to our schools through the Revenue Sharing Plan and the waiving of school dues. I thank our Central Board for its strong leadership and thank our valued corporate partners for their commitment to our member schools, our student-athletes and our educational based programs.”
The Central Board also heard appeals from Murphy, Muscle Shoals, John Carroll Catholic and Daphne high schools. In each case, the Central Board upheld the sanctions administered by the executive director with only one change. The one-year restrictive probation sanction in the respective sport was reduced to regular probation for one year – which allows the program to compete in championship play during the probationary period.
Central Board president Mike Welsh said, “Because of the rule change in April, it allowed the board to consider the efforts of the schools in question to correct the problems. Before the rules change, the executive director did not have that option.”
He said each member school has taken measures that included self-imposed sanctions and restrictions. “Because of the actions taken by the schools, the board felt that lifting the restrictive probation was justified.”
The sports affected at each school were Murphy (girls’ basketball); Muscle Shoals (football); John Carroll Catholic (football); and Daphne (volleyball).
AHSAA Associate Executive Director Tony Stallworth swore in several new board members. They included Blount principal Jerome Woods (District 1), Dadeville administrator Pam Holloway (District 4), Center Point principal Van Phillips (District 5), Wadley principal Lori Carlisle and Lawrence County principal Thomas Jones (District 7). Not in attendance was Sumter County Schools’ superintendent Dr. Tyrone Yarbrough.
The Board also was updated on AHSAA’s Corporate Partner program. ALFA is the newest corporate partner, and Jacks’ increased its support bringing the total to nine in the Corporate Partner Program (Alabama Power, ALFA, Cadence Bank, Coca-Cola, Encore Rehabilitation, Jacks’, Russell, Team IP and Wilson).
The Board also approved recommendations by the AHSAA’s Sports Committees including changing the new Baseball Pitch Count Rule pitching limitation from team level to grade level.
The Central Board also was updated about the AHSAA Five-Year Strategic Plan, which is entering its fifth year. AHSAA Assistant Director Denise Ainsworth informed the board that all 24 goals of the strategic plan have been completed, implemented or studied.
Mr. Savarese presented retiring Central Board member from District 2 Lamar Brooks of Dale County with a plaque of appreciation. Mr. Brooks served two years as president of the Central Board during his tenure.
The Board also recognized and thanked retiring AHSAA Assistant Director Greg Brewer for his dedicated service and was introduced to his replacement Mark Jones.
In other Central Board action:
– Approved the financial reports for the spring championships in soccer, softball, baseball and track.
– Reviewed and approved 2016-17 publications including the AHSAA Handbook, the combined 2016-17 AHSAA Sports Book.
– Approved the 2016-17 budgets for the AHSAA and the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association AHSADCA) and the 2015-16 audits for each group.
– Approved a new Consent and Release Form that must be signed by all student-athletes and their parents beginning in 2016-17.
– Approved a recommendation from the Competition Committee to explore a State Cheerleading Plan that includes regional competition.
– Approved the request from Cornerstone Christian School of Rainsville to be removed from AHSAA middle-school membership.
-- Was updated about the AHSAA insurance coverages and School Audit Program.

MONTGOMERY – Spanish Fort’s Tyler Johnston was named the 34th recipient of the Alabama Sports Writers Association’s Mr. Football Award on Wednesday at the ASWA’s annual Player of the Year Awards luncheon, presented by the Alabama High School Athletic Directors and Coaches Association. The annual luncheon was held at the Alabama Activity Center in Montgomery.
Johnston – a 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior quarterback – threw for 3,619 yards this season, completing 193 of 286 passing with 39 touchdowns and just nine interceptions. Johnson also had 129 carries for 750 yards for 13 touchdowns. Johnston was 35-0 as a starter, leading the Toros to state championships in 2013 and 2015 but missing most of the 2014 season with an ACL injury.
Johnston finished with 148 points and eight first-place votes from the ASWA’s prep committee, while Clay-Chalkville senior quarterback Ty Pigrome, the 2014 runner-up, had 139 points with four firsts. Gordo senior linebacker Ben Davis was third with 80 points, Clay-Chalkville senior wide receiver TJ Simmons was fourth (69) and Austin senior offensive lineman Deonte Brown was fifth (68).
Johnston was named the ASWA Class 6A Back of the Year and was chosen to the group’s Super 12 team. He participated in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game and is a verbal commitment to UAB. He was also an ASWA first-team all-state selection at quarterback in 2013. He also played the last game and a half this season with a torn ligament in his elbow.
Johnston becomes the first quarterback to win the Mr. Football award since Carver-Montgomery’s Jeremy Johnson in 2012 and the seventh from the Mobile area, joining Tommy Compton (Vigor, 1982), Darrell Williams (Vigor, 1988), DeMarco McNeil (Blount, 1998), JaMarcus Russell (Williamson, 2002), Julio Jones (Foley, 2007) and T.J.

The 2015 Mr. Football Award will be presented to one of 48 finalists, three linemen and three backs, selected in each of the seven AHSAA classifications and AISA by the ASWA All-State Committee. All 48 players, their coaches and families will be attending the luncheon. A back and lineman of the year will be announced in each classification.
Mr. Football, considered as the state high school player of the year, is selected from the class back and line winners by the ASWA. Last year’s Mr. Football recipient was Kerryon Johnson of Madison Academy, now a freshman at Auburn University.
The Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association is host of the luncheon.
The ASWA announced the finalists in December. Those representing AHSAA member schools are listed below.

Six high schools, including two defending state champions and two 2014 semifinalists, will play Friday night and Saturday at Cramton Bowl as the 10th annual Champions Challenge officially kicks off the 2015 prep football season for the Alabama High School Athletic Association.
The head coaches and selected players gathered at the AHSAA Tuesday for the Champions Challenge press conference. Media on hand came in early for the annual AHSAA Media Day. Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange was on hand to welcome the media there to cover the press conference.
Three-time defending Class 3A state champion Madison Academy will be riding a 14-game winning streak into Friday night’s Champions Challenge opener against defending Class 4A state champion Leeds. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m. The Mustangs lost to the Green Wave 27-24 in the season opener last season at Huntsville – a loss that snapped a 25-game winning streak.
Coach Eric Cohu’s team rebounded to win 14 in a row, beating Glencoe 31-28 on a last-second field goal in the Class 3A semifinals and then beat Dale County 70-34 in the 3A championship game at Auburn University’s Jordan-Hare Stadium last December.
Leeds won seven in a row to open the 2014 season, then lost to Dadeville 20-14, then Coach Keith Etheredge’s Green Wave reeled off seven more wins to claim their third state title since 2009 with a 30-0 triumph over Deshler in the 4A finals at Jordan-Hare.
Etheredge, 94-32, has seen his team compile a 66-7 on-the-field record over the last five years while Cohu’s team has gone 64-7 during that same stretch. Leeds posted four shutouts in five playoff wins last season, outscoring those opponents 206-14. Madison Academy scored 722 points on the season. Cohu has a 114-22 overall record including 76-10 with the Mustangs.
The Champions Challenge will continue on Saturday with a double-header featuring Class 3A semifinalists Glencoe and Gordo in the 5 p.m. game at Cramton Bowl and Class 6A Carver-Montgomery versus Class 7A Bob Jones in the final game at 7:30 p.m.
Gordo , 13-1 last year, lost on the final play of its semifinal game versus Dale County 32-28. The Green Wave of Coach Ryan Lolley has compiled a 20-5 record in his two seasons as head coach. Led by linebacker Ben Davis, Gordo touts a strong defensive team – reflective of the school’s storied history dating back to its first season in 1915. The Green Wave has a 555-348-32 record overall during that span. Glencoe, which fielded its first team in 1922, is 491-381-26 overall with Coach Lee Ozmint’s Yellow Jackets compiling a 45-16 record over the last five seasons.
Carver-Montgomery won the Class 6A, Region 2 title last season and finished 9-3 overall in 2014. The Wolverines have gone 38-12 in Coach Billy Gresham’s four seasons as head coach and are 46-16 over the last five seasons. Bob Jones, 8-3 in 2014, finished second in Class 7A, Region 8 behind region winner Gadsden City. The Patriots fell to Tuscaloosa County in the state playoffs last year 28-21.
Coach Kevin Rose, who joined the Bob Jones staff in 2008, has been head coach the last seven seasons compiling a 57-15 record which ties for second among 7A schools during that span. Only defending 7A champion Hoover has won more games in that span.
The Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA) hosts the series, which played its first Champions Challenge at Cramton Bowl in 2006.
Last year was the first year that schools have had 11 weeks to play 10 games and the first year for the new seven-classification system. Schools still have a choice whether to count any week one contest as a regular-season or jamboree contest. The Carver-Bob Jones and Gordo-Glencoe games will remain as exhibition games and will not count on either team's record since all four already have 10 regular-season games scheduled. The Leeds vs. Madison Academy clash will be a regular-season game. Both schools will have 10 weeks to play their remaining nine games.
All six schools are taking the playoff-type approach, however. “Our kids were really devastated with the season ended like it did last year,” Gordo’s Lolley said. “We are a hungry team. I am sure Glencoe felt the same way. We feel this is such a big honor to be able to kick off the season in the Champions Challenge on such a big stage.”
The 2015 Champions Challenge will be televised live and web-streamed by AHSAA TV partner Raycom Media. Stations in the network can be found at www.ahsaa.com. The AHSAA Radio Network will also broadcast all three games live. The AHSAA Radio Network affiliates can also be found at www.ahsaa.com. Live stats will also be available online at www.ahsaa.com.
The Champions Challenge schedule is:
Friday, August 21 – 7 p.m.: Madison Academy (14-1) vs. Leeds (14-1)
Saturday, August 22 – 5 p.m.: Glencoe (13-1) vs. Gordo (13-1)
Saturday, August 22 – 7:30 p.m.: Carver-Montgomery (9-3) vs. Bob Jones (8-3)
