Chattanooga Area Places 10 In Toyota All-Star Classic

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 - by special report to chattanoogan.com
The Chattanooga area-will be represented by 10 players in

this year’s seventh Toyota East/West All-Star Classic scheduled for Friday, Dec. 13, at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville.

Kickoff for this year’s game is slated for 7 o’clock CST at Tucker Stadium.

East Hamilton’s Ted Gatewood will serve as head coach of the East squad and Jeff Porter of White House will handle similar duties for the West team. 

Representing the Chattanooga area will be Baylor's Rafael Gaglianone, Cleveland's Austin Herink, East Hamilton's Hunter Moore, Baylor's George Porter, Ooltewah's David Nobles, East Hamilton's Tre Herndon, Cleveland's D.J. Jones, South Pittsburg's Kahlil Mitchell, Baylor's Will Thomas and East Hamilton's Austin Gatewood.   

“We are extremely excited about the young men who have been selected to represent these two teams and expect a great week of activities in Cookeville,” said Bill Marbet, Executive Director of the Tennessee Athletic Coaches Association, the organization that coordinates the annual event.
    “These players have had exceptional high school careers and many will continue their athletic careers next year at the college level. Several will no doubt also be playing in the BlueCross Bowl next week, hoping to add a state championship to their resume,” he continued.
    

Players are nominated by their 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 more than a dozen coaches involved in the game will arrive in Cookeville on Tuesday evening, Dec. 10. Two-a-day practice sessions are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday prior to Friday’s game.

This year players will also participate in a football combine. Officials at Elite Athletic Events will put players through multiple training stations that include the bench press, vertical leap and 40-yard dash, as well as various agility drills.
