2013 East-West Football
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
A.J. Simeon Stadium in High Point, N.C.

Game begins at 8:00 p.m.; Fireworks at halftime.

The East-West All-Star Games have lived up to their billing of seeing
tomorrow’s stars today, as many former all-star players wear NCCA National Championship rings, Super Bowl rings, NBA Championship rings, or have participated in soccer’s World Cup.

The first East-West All-Star Football Game was played in 1949. Coach Bob Jamieson, the Director of the NCCA, received the keys to the stadium from the contractor at 4:00 pm the day of the game. Coach Jamieson then went onto the field at his school and coached the West team against the East’s Leon Brogden, Wilmington’s legendary coach.

The football game has featured hundreds of future NCAA Division I stars and many of the boys who have suited up have gone on to successful careers in the NFL. Over 3400 North Carolina boys have had the chance to wear the royal of the East or the scarlet of the West in this wonderful rivalry.

The 2013 All-Star Game will be played at High Point’s A.J. Simeon Stadium. Fireworks at halftime are a crowd favorite and the game is shown on Time-Warner’s “On Demand” channel.
