HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER: Wonders’ Booker makes east-west sport | Newest headlines
CONCORD – AL Brown Senior Defensive Back Jacob Brown was the only Cabarrus County player selected for the prestigious NC East-West All-Star Football Game this year.
The NC Coaches Association announced the rosters for the East and West teams on Thursday, and Booker was among the chosen.
The east-west All-Star game is expected to be played on July 21 at Jamieson Stadium at Greensboro Grimsley High School.
The annual All-Star Game features some of the best senior graduates from eastern North Carolina competing against their western counterparts.
That season, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound booker led the Wonders, which won the South Piedmont 3A Conference championship. In six games of the regular season he registered 42 tackles and combined the team leadership with two interceptions. He also deflected 13 passes and forced a fumble while becoming one of nine AL Browns to earn the All-SPC award that season.
Booker was also a threat to AL Brown offensively, as he scored nine passes for 178 yards and three touchdowns.
On his Twitter page on Thursday, Booker wrote about the selection for the East-West game: “Blessed to be selected. Nothing but God. “
The West team’s head coach this year will be Greensboro Page’s Doug Robertson. His assistants are Chuck Cannon of Wilkes Central, David Devine of Lawndale Burns, Nick Eddins of Shelby Crest, and Wayne Hicks of Hickory St. Stephens.
