BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WCBI/NEMCC)– Northeast Mississippi Community College is preparing to host the thirty-ninth annual Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) All-Star Football Classic at Tiger Stadium again for 2012.

Players are scheduled to report on Thursday, November 29 at noon with the annual all-star event kicking off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 1.  Athletes immediately hit the field following reporting to Booneville.

All-star coaches are selected on a rotating basis.  Thirty-three players comprise each roster with each institution contributing three athletes – the remainder of the roster is selected by the all-star coaches but no more than eight players from one school is allowed on one team.

The head coaches for both squads will be released at a later date as well as the names of the players for this year’s event.

Each squad – North and South – will have three practices before Saturday’s game. Thursday players will only practice once while teams double up on Friday.

The MACJC All-Star Classic has been a springboard from community college to the next level of football. Numerous athletes from past all-star classics have gone on to sign scholarships to Football Bowl Subdivision (former the NCAA’s Division I) schools.
