Seven MGCCC Bulldogs set to play in MACJC All-Star Game
ALL-STAR FOOTBALL CLASSIC SET FOR THIS WEEKEND IN BOONEVILLEBOONEVILLE, Miss. – Seven players from the 2012 Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College are scheduled to suit up in the thirty-ninth annual Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) All-Star Football Classic hosted by Northeast Mississippi Community College.
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.
Gulf Coast players on the MACJC South All-Star squad include quarterback Clint Hatten, tight end Cade Amacker, offensive linemen Lawrence Ramsey, Ramsey Sellers, and Ben Wiles, defensive lineman Travis Taylor, and linebacker Brandon Keel. In 2012 Gulf Coast went 9-2, won the MACJC South Division title, and appeared in the MACJC Championship game for the sixth straight season.
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.
