MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Alabama All-Star football team roster for next December’s 34th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic football game has been completed, announced Jamie Lee, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors and Coaches Association (AHSADCA).  The 34th annual game is scheduled to be played at Cramton Bowl on Saturday, December 12.

 The 2020 squad consists of 21 seniors who have already announced commitments to sign with Division I colleges.  The other 19 are still undecided.   

 The annual game, which pits the top high school senior players from Alabama and Mississippi, has been played yearly since 1988.

Fyffe Senior, Brody Dalton has been selected to represent Fyffe in this year’s game.  While the 6’4”, 238-pound gentle giant has not committed to a school yet, he has numerous offers.  

UAB, USA, JSU, UNC-Murray State, Tennessee Tech, Kennesaw State and the University of South Florida have all made offers to Dalton. 

“This is a very special achievement for Brody because not many guys from this county have got to compete in this game” stated Fyffe head football, Coach Paul Benefield.  “These are players who for the most part have D1 offers, so we are proud and honored to have someone playing in this game.” 

 Dalton never takes any credit solely and is always so grateful to his teammates.  Dalton will be joined on the field by Coach Paul Benefield who has had the honor of coaching the defensive line three times. 

Congratulations to Brody Dalton on such a great honor.  We know you will represent Northeast Alabama, DeKalb County, and Fyffe well.
