Players arrive on coast for the 2010 Bernard Blackwell All-Star Football game

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Both teams arrived on the coast Wednesday and the South team hit the practice field at Milner Stadium Wednesday night and the North team practice at Ocean Springs Greyhounds Stadium.  Ridgeland's Kenny Burton is the North head coach.

Teddy Dyess of Philadelphia is the South head coach and he watched Ramsey Sellers, a 5-10, 315 pound Stone County defensive lineman turn heads with his physical strength in one-on-one drills. He won three battles in the trenches against much bigger offensive linemen.

Javon Washington out of Natchez is one of the South quarterbacks along with 6-4, 175 pound Colin Bray of Vancleave. He helped guide the Bulldogs of head coach Jim Bloomfield to 11 wins and 2 losses.

Bray says it's an honor to compete in the All-Star game.

"It's a big accomplishment," Bray said. "There's a lot of great players in this game and I was just excited to hear the news that I got a chance to play, great accomplishment.

Last year 6 All-Star players received Division I scholarships after playing in the annual game.  That gives Bray another incentive to do well in practice this week and in the game on Saturday.

He said, "I'm going to give it everything I have. I'm going to work hard in practice and hopefully coaches may catch an eye.'  He added, "It's about the team, it's not about me. It's about the team and I give all the glory to God and I just go out and play a 100 percent every game."

Tomorrow's practice will send the North team at Milner Stadium from 9:00-11:00 am and back in Gulfport from 1:00-3:00 PM.  The South All-Stars will practice at Ocean Springs Greyhounds Stadium also at 9:00 and 1:00 p.m.

A special thanks must go out to the Air National Guard in Gulfport.  They are housing and feeding the players and coaches.
