Alabama All-Star Game


      The White-clad South All-Stars providing power up the middle with a more than effective passing game came through and posted a 20-14 win over the North in the 15th Annual Alabama All-Star Game before 14,000 fans.

      Sidney Lanier quarterback Ashby Cook, given a brace of versatile backs and sturdy interior linemen, directed all three South scoring drives and walked off with Most Valuable Back honors for the South.

      The North signal-caller, Jimmy Mitchell of Decatur, was named Most Valuable Back for the Yanks. The South win put the Rebels ahead in the series at 7 wins - 6 losses and 2 ties.

      Heading up the North coaching staff was John Morgan, Fayette, who was ably assisted by Bill Isbell, Decatur High; L. C. Fowler, Pickens County; G. B. Beasley, Cherokee County; and Herman L. Crider, Jr., Oakman. Directing the South, Bobby Wilson of Sidney Lanier had as his assistants James R. Allen, Monroe County; Allen Treadwell, Pike County; T. C. Britton, Jr., Smiths Station; and Claude V. Saia, John Carroll of Birmingham.
