Several Area Players On East Roster For All-Star Classic

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - by special report to chattanoogan.com

Rosters for both the East and West squads have been announced for next month’s annual Toyota East/West All-Star Classic.

This year’s event will take place on the campus of Tennessee Tech in Cookeville. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. (CST) on Saturday, December 8, at Tucker Stadium.

“We are extremely excited about both rosters,” commented Bill Marbet, Executive Director of the Tennessee Athletic Coaches Association, the game’s organizing body.

 

“These players have had exceptional high school careers and many will continue their play at the college level, many in very high profile programs in some of the major conferences across the country. We think it’s a great group of young men who will represent their respective high schools very well,” he added.

Caine Ballard of Greeneville will serve as the head coach for the East team while Kevin Creasy will lead the West squad.

 

Players are nominated by high school coaches from all across the state, then selected by the coaching staffs for the game. They represent large and small high schools, both public and private.

The 88 players and 16 coaches involved in the game will arrive in Cookeville on Tuesday evening, December 4. Two-a-day practice sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday prior to Saturday’s game.

This year’s game will be telecast live on all of the state’s PBS television stations. It will also be streamed on tssaanetwork.com <http://tssaanetwork.com> and on espn3.com <http://espn3.com> . Fans can also listen to the game on a statewide radio network via WKCS, the FM radio station for Knox County Schools. Fans can access that broadcast at www.WKCSradio.org <http://www.WKCSradio.org . Game information will also be available on Twitter at @tnallstar.
