Four T&D Region senior high school football players were selected this week to play in the 68th-annual North-South All-Star football game, sponsored by Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.

The game will be played on Dec. 10, at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium in Myrtle Beach.

Local players selected to play on the South team include Edisto defensive tackle Quincy Frederick, Edisto wide receiver Jacobe Perry, Bamberg-Ehrhardt linebacker Nick Hughes and Branchville defensive tackle Torrion Stevenson. 

The North-South teams are composed of players who first must be recommended by their high school coach. They are then selected by the game's coaching staffs for that year, after careful review of video footage of their play from the current season.

All-Star players will begin their week of activities at Myrtle Beach on Sunday, December 4. The practice schedules and activities are similar to a college bowl schedule for the All-Star players and coaches.

“The players have a great time at Myrtle Beach during the week," said Keith Richardson, the North-South game director. "They work hard during the day, but they have a lot of fun when they are not on the football field.

"They eat at great restaurants, stay at oceanfront hotels and enjoy off-the-field activities they can only experience at Myrtle Beach.”

The North-South All-Star Game was begun in 1947 as part of the state coaches clinic in Columbia. During the past 20 years, with the game held annually in Myrtle Beach, it has grown to be one of the premier high school all-star games in the country.
