Prep Football Stars Find New Showcase

By  | 

(WVLT) -- Tennessee's most talented high school football players have a new spotlight in which to showcase their skills to college recruiters. The Toyota East vs. West Tennessee All-star Classic will be held Dec. 15, replacing the Tennessee-Kentucky All-star Game, which will no longer take place.

WVLT is proud to provide the television coverage for the event.

Catholic head coach Mark Pemberton is the East head coach, while David Lipscomb's Glenn MacAdams will head up the West squad. Each team will include 44 players; the West squad has already been chosen, and the East coaches will select their team Saturday.

Carson-Newman's Burke-Tarr Stadium will serve as host for the Classic; the West team will practice there during the week before the game, while the East squad will train at Tusculum College.
