Coaches’ Association All-star Football Game Site Moving For 2013


HIGH POINT – The North Carolina Coaches Association has announced that the 65th East-West All-Star football game will be played at A.J. Simeon Stadium in July of 2013, according to various media reports.

Grimsley’s Jamieson Stadium in Greensboro has been the site for the high school all-star game for the previous 64 years. The move is necessitated due to a construction project at Jamieson Stadium.

Although the site of the game in 2013 will be different, many of the features of the event will remain the same. The game, one of the highlights of the annual week of the North Carolina Coaches Association clinic, features graduating seniors from across the state and a fireworks display at halftime.

Former East-West all-star Ethan Albright, who played collegiately at North Carolina after an outstanding career at Grimsley in Greensboro, will lead a youth football clinic the day of the game, with participants attending the all-star game that evening. Albright also has enjoyed a lengthy career in the National Football League.
