REGION 23 ALL-STAR FOOTBALL CLASSIC SET FOR THIS WEEKEND IN BOONEVILLE
 November 27, 2012

BOONEVILLE, Miss. – Northeast Mississippi Community College continues to prepare to host the thirty-ninth annual Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) All-Star Football Classic at Tiger Stadium again for 2012.
Players are scheduled to report on Thursday, November 29 at noon with the annual all-star event kicking off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 1.

All-star coaches are selected on a rotating basis and this year the North squad will be coached by Coahoma Community College’s head coach Freeman Horton and his staff.  For the South squad, it will be Hinds Community College’s head coach Gene Murphy and his staff.

Thirty-three players comprise each roster with each institution contributing three athletes – the remainder of the roster is selected by the all-star coaches but no more than eight players from one school is allowed on one team.  A complete tentative roster will be released as soon as one is available.

Athletes immediately hit the field following reporting to Booneville.  Each squad – North and South – will have three practices before Saturday's game. Thursday players will only practice once while teams double up on Friday.

The MACJC All-Star Classic has been a springboard from community college to the next level of football. Numerous athletes from past all-star classics have gone on to sign scholarships to Football Bowl Subdivision (former the NCAA's Division I) schools.
