Rosters set for East-West All-Star Classic

RED JACKET — This year’s East-West All-star Classic rosters are set.

The annual East-West All-Star Classic is mere weeks away and is set to be full action. The East will be coached by Westside Head coach Larry Cook and the West will be coached by Mingo Central Assistant Coach Joey Fields. The rosters on both sides are filled with talent.

The East has 24 participants on the roster and the West has 29.

This year’s event will be sponsored by local attorney Jeff Simpkins. Head coach for the West Joey Fields said, “Jeff has been such a big help this year, he has helped with everything we have asked for, it’s participation like his that really makes these things go from good to great.” Fields says they anticipate a big crowd and a lot of great football.

“I believe Jeff is more excited about the game than the players, he has really stayed in the drivers seat on this one,” added Fields.

Mr. Simpkins is a former football standout himself at Matewan High School under coach Yogi Kinder.

Feilds said, “we have a big roster of area guys this year, we had a lot of great seniors in this area and have a lot of great guys coming from up north and all over to play too, this will be a really great game.”

The East will be wearing Marshall University colors, green and white, and the West will be wearing WVU colors, blue and gold.

This years game will be coordinated by Mingo Central head coach Yogi Kinder and the games director is Mingo Central assistant coach Joey Fields, kick off is set for 8:00 p.m. on August 1.
