BOONEVILLE, MISS.,-- Northeast Mississippi Community College’s Tiger Stadium will host the thirty-seventh annual Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) All-Star Classic football game on Saturday, December 4.

The Magnolia State’s 14 MACJC schools are slated to participate in the event, which is set for a 1 p.m. kickoff.

In 2009 Head Coach Gene Murphy (Hinds) led the charge for the South team as they picked up the 28-0 victory. With that win the South team holds a two-game win streak as the South defeated the North in 2008 on a score of 16-14.

The overall record for the all-star series now sits at 17-17-2.

Thirty-three players will make up the North and South sides of the ball with each institution contributing three players and the remainder of the squad selected by the All-Star Classic coaches but no more than eight players from one school will be on a team.

All-Star coaches will come from their respective division’s third place teams – unless they coached the previous year’s all-star contest.

With only limited time to get athletes ready, defenses are basic with tricks and stunting prohibited.

Athletes will report to the MACJC All-Star Classic headquarters at noon on Thursday, December 2 and immediately hit the field following.

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.
