Alabama All-Star Game


      A bruising North line held the South to 28 net yards rushing and didn't yield a first down until late in the third period to hand the underdog Yanks a 7-0 win in the thirteenth annual All-Star football game -- witnessed by a record crowd of 16,498. Halfback Hudson Harris of Tarrant High scored the lone touchdown on a dive from the one during the second period.

      The North had been bruised so badly during the ten days' practice that it was, at times, impossible to scrimmage. That, along with the fact that the South boasted a zippy backfield which operated from both the "T" formation and the single wing, caused the Rebs to be a big favorite. But the line play of such as Harvey Morris of Decatur (named Most Outstanding Lineman) was the key. Hueytown Halfback Ronnie Mason, a 145-pounder, was named the top back.

      The North was coached by Arab's Earl Webb, who was assisted by Gilbert Adams of Oxford, Alan Cunningham of Red Bay, Durell Mock of Deshler, and Charlie Richards of Tarrant. South coaches were Head Coach Jackie Davis of Tallassee, Billy Henderson of Tuscaloosa, Roy Davis of Ozark (Carroll High), Connie McKelvey of Camden, and Glen Yancey of Vigor.
