Alabama All-Star Game




         
1977

      Except for 3 offensive plays the North controlled the ball in the 1st quarter. However, the South struck for two touchdowns in the 2nd quarter to take command of the game. On the 1st touchdown the South recovered a fumbled attempted punt on the North's 40 yard line and scored a touchdown in 8 plays with Oglivie, Mt. Brook's all ever thing, crashing over from the three yard line with 8:49 to play in the second quarter.

      Tim Bryan kicked the extra point to give the South a 7-0 lead. Although the North was able to move the ball for 16 plays at the start of the game the South defense forced the North to punt after only 4 plays following the South's 1st touchdown, after which the Rebs marched to pay dirt with Mickey Burton passing to Mardye McDole for 36 yards and the touchdown.

      With 3:36 left in the 1st half Bryan kicked the extra point to make the South 14 and the North O. Following the kick-off after the South's 2nd touchdown the North needed only 2 plays to get on the scoreboard as the Scottsboro quarterback, Don Jacobs, found James Haney of Lauderdale County wide open at the South 35 and Haney took the pass ran into the end zone to complete a record 72 yard scoring pass. Don Jacobs narrowed the score to 14-7 as he split the uprights for the extra point.

      The score remained 14-7 until 2:07 in the final quarter when Tim Bryan kicked a field goal making the final score South 17, North 7. Bryan's field goal culminated a 74 yard drive following a fumble recovery by Byron Braggs that halted a sustained drive by the North. Braggs, who played at Carver in Montgomery, made 6 individual tackles, 4 assists and recovered the fumble leading to the South's field goal that iced the game, was selected the games most outstanding lineman and Tim Hill's 97 yards on 27 carries paced the North attack and earned him the most outstanding back selection.
