Greene County football players to play in Tennessee-Virginia All-Star game.

A total of nine Greene County senior football players will help make up the Tennessee roster in the third annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes Tennessee vs. Virginia All-Star game.

The contest is scheduled for this Saturday at 1 p.m. at Gene Malcom Stadium on the campus of Virginia High School (Bristol).

"This is a great opportunity for the kids to play one more game," said West Greene head coach Joe Case, who is an assistant for this year's Tennessee squad. "Some colleges will come watch them practice during the week and it gives a little bit more recognition to these outstanding players."

Tennessee High's Shane Boggs is the head coach of the Tennessee stars. This is Case's third year as an assistant. Chuckey-Doak head coach Aaron Christian is also an assistant for this year's game.

Players from all five high schools in Greene County will be participating, including: Bryce Malone and Greg Bowman of Chuckey-Doak, Brandon Jones and Tanner Stewart of Greeneville, Mason Early and Ethan Dotson of North Greene, Cody Brobeck of South Greene, and Jaylynn Kesterson and Caleb Julian of West Greene.

The Tennessee squad is made up of players from Hawkins County up to Johnson County.

The team will practice at Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett on Wednesday and Thursday, and at Tennessee High on Friday.

Case said that even though there isn't a lot of time to get a roster of 52 football players from various schools ready to play a game, they try to install as many offensive and defensive schemes as they can.

"I'm in charge of the offensive line, and we are going to try to keep it simple," Case said. "But at the same time, we have quite a few plays in our book. We are going to try and run a lot."

A portion of the proceeds from the event go to fund other FCA student events.
