Simeon Stadium set to host to 2013 East-West All-Star game
HIGH POINT – The NCCA is pleased to announce that the 65th East-West All-Star football game will be played at A.J. Simeon Stadium in July of 2013.
The all-star game, which has been played at Grimsley’s Jamieson Stadium in Greensboro for the previous 64 years, is moving due to a construction project at
the traditional site.
Phil Weaver, an executive director of the NCCA, expressed his pleasure at the commitment and support promised by High Point officials and said the NCCA looks forward to working with them in preparation for the all-star game which drew a crowd of 7,623 to Jamieson Stadium last July.
Although the site of the game in 2013 will be different, the excitement will remain the same, with a game featuring outstanding graduating seniors from across the state and a fireworks display at halftime.
Additionally, former East-West all-star Ethan Albright, who played collegiately at UNC Chapel Hill and professionally for many years with the Washington Redskins, will lead a youth football clinic the day of the game, with participants attending the all-star game that evening.
