Warner Robins head coach Bryan Way will lead the South team in the annual Georgia Athletic Coaches Association North-South All-Star Game on Dec. 29 in Columbus.
Way helped compile a team loaded with Middle Georgia guys, including five Houston County standouts and two from Bibb County.
Northside’s all-state candidate Keshun Hill headlines the team after rushing for more than 1,200 yards as a senior. He’ll be joined by teammate and linebacker Trey Payne.
Versatile athlete DeAnthony Mack will represent Warner Robins, while Houston County receiver/kick returner Myles White and Perry linebacker Marquez Thomas will also make the trip.
Westside’s standout quarterback-receiver combination Noah Grayer and Shannon Smith made the team after leading the Seminoles to a region championship after a 5-5 season in 2011.
Jones County and Washington County both have two players on the team.
Record-breaking running back Undre Williams and offensive lineman Jackson Williamson will represent the Greyhounds, while Washington County quarterback William Walker and kicker/punter J.W. May were selected.
Rounding out the Middle Georgia contingency are Vidalia linebacker Nic McBride and Bleckley County cornerback Derrick Farrow.
Way's coaching staff will also have strong Middle Georgia representation. He'll be joined by two former assistant coaches David Bruce (now the head coach at Veterans) and Stacey Harden (Perry's head coach) along with current Warner Robins defensive coordinator Paul Carroll. Rutland head coach George Collins, who played at Warner Robins, joins the staff alongside Westside head coach Sheddrick Risper. Rounding out the staff: Lee Chomskis (Vidalia), Lee Campbell (Crisp County) and Kevin Whitley (Stockbridge).
