*AHSAA Press Release*
The 2014 North-South all-star baseball teams for the 18th annual Alabama All-Star Sports Week competition were announced Monday by Alvin Briggs, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA).
The two teams, comprised of current junior student-athletes from across the state, will play in Montgomery Tuesday, July 22.
All-Star Sports Week, set for July 21-25, also includes in-state all-star games in soccer, volleyball, softball, basketball and football, in addition to the AHSAA Summer Conference with clinics and professional development sessions for coaches, principals, athletic directors, cheer coaches and contest officials.
Also, an All-Sports Equipment Expo and other related activities are scheduled throughout the week. Two of the highlights will be the Sportsmanship Banquet, which will honor all schools that do not have an ejection or fine during the 2013-14 school year, and the Championship Coaches Awards Banquet, which will recognize coaches whose teams win a state championship in the 2013-14 school year. That banquet will also honor the 2014 Making A Difference Award winners.
Coaches for the North All-Stars are Lee Gann of Mountain Brook, Morris Phillips of Fayetteville, Kellen Greer of Sparkman and Rick Davis of Hoover.
The South All-Stars will be coached by Coy Campbell of W.S. Neal, Lee Hyde of Wicksburg, John Gluschick of Montgomery Academy and Billy Jones of Opelika. Coach Ken Whittle of Trinity Presbyterian will serve as administrative coach for South squad and Keith Lucky of St. James for the North.
The North swept last year’s doubleheader 6-0 and 13-5 to improve its series lead to 17-10-1. The series began in 1997.
The AHSADCA operates under the auspices of the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA). Membership includes coaches of all AHSAA sports as well as administrators of member schools.
