BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Alabama has dominated the games having won 6 consecutive over the Mississippi All-Stars and lead the all-time series with 20 wins and 7 defeats.
A couple of Alabama players are Mississippi State commitments including Shades Valley High School wide receiver Keith Mixon and Bessemer City High School defensive lineman Darryl Williams. He's 6-3 and weighs 305 pounds. Williams says having confidence every time he steps out on the football turf helps him to adjust to the college game at Mississippi State.
Williams said, "This is a great week for me, knowing I can go against some of the top players in Mississippi and show my talent.
"I just want to show I can go out and play with the big dogs, "stated Mixon. "I know I'm pretty short but I've got a big heart and I think I can play with them."
Four players from the coast are members of the Mississippi All-Stars. They include: Gulfport Admirals quarterback Richaud Floyd, a Missouri commitment. Pascagoula defensive end Keith Joseph, Junior. He's committed to Mississippi State. Fellow Pascagoula Panther, defensive lineman Jauan Collins will be heading to Southern Miss and St. Stanislaus offensive and defensive lineman Jordan Bradford. He's committed to play at Louisiana Tech.
