Prep Football Squads Announced For 56th North-South All-Star Game

     

North-South All-Star squads for the upcoming 56th AHSAA North-South All-Star Football Game have been selected. The two teams comprised of 2015 seniors were announced by Alvin Briggs, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA) Monday.
      The North-South Game will be played Friday, July 17th  at Montgomery’s Cramton Bowl. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m. The annual game will be live-streamed by the NFHS Network and broadcast by the AHSAA Radio Network.
      The game will be played the week prior to the 2015 AHSAA Summer Conference.
      Head coach for the North is Hubbertville High School Coach Lamar Harris.
South head coach is Carver-Montgomery’s Billy Gresham.
     
Harris became the head football coach at Class 1A Hubbertville in the fall of 1979 where he has remained the past 38 seasons. His tenure at Hubbertville is one of the longest of all-time in Alabama high school football history. He has a 219-188 career record including 14-1 last season, best in school history. His team lost in the Class 1A state finals at Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium to Maplesville in 2014. Twenty-five of his teams have advanced to the AHSAA state playoffs.
        Harris coached in the 1999 state North-South all-star football game. He was inducted into the Alabama High School Athletic Association's Hall of Fame.
        One of the AHSAA’s most versatile coaches, Harris has also served as Hubbertville’s softball coach for 16 years with three state championships and a 403-135 record. He coached girls' basketball for 23 years and captured two state titles with an overall record of 293-170. His 24 boys' basketball teams have won four area crowns. |
        Gresham Billy Gresham will be entering his fifth season as head football coach. He has compiled a record of 38-12 over the last four seasons. His teams have qualified for the playoffs every year, reaching the semifinals in 2012 and quarterfinals in 2013. Carver has won two region titles (2012 and 2014) under his reign. He served as defensive coordinator for three years at Carver before being named head coach in 2011. His overall record at Carver is 69-19 as defensive coordinator and head coach.
       
The South holds a 30-23-2 edge in the North-South series which began in 1948. The South won 20-12 last year.
      Seven players who helped their teams win state championships last December have been selected to play for the North squad in this summer’s game, including Fyffe running back Austin Stiefel, who was named MVP of the Class 2A championship game. He finished the year with over 2,300 yards rushing and 47 touchdowns scored including 46 rushing.
      Others selected for the North squad from state championship teams are offensive lineman Jeremy Clark, linebacker Tyler Wright and defensive back Jacoby Lockhart of Leeds, defensive lineman Jordan Sharbutt and offensive lineman Tyon Hardy of Clay-Chalkville and place-kicker Nathan Geis of Madison Academy, one of the most prolific kickers in AHSAA history.
      South players selected who played in state championship games last year include defensive back Wade Castle of Class 3A Dale County, defensive lineman Ricky Franklin and wide receiver Seth Knotts of Class 7A Prattville and linebacker Tyler Armstrong of Class 1A champion Maplesville. Gresham’s own Carver linebacker Sirderrick Banks is also in the game.
      Coaches named to Gresham’s South staff are Deric Scott of Vigor, Nathan McDaniel of Baldwin County, Pate Harrison of Dale County, Ashley Kilcrease of Brantley, Maurice Heard of B.T. Washington, Tim Perry of Wetumpka and Michael Summers of Alabama Christian, who will serve as administrative coach.
