Rembert, Morgan make North-South gameBy Jeremy Smith Published 12:08pm Friday, May 18, 2012
A pair of local high school football talents will get one final high school game this summer when they participate in the North-South All-Star game.
University of West Alabama signee and Sweet Water High School standout Ty Morgan will play tight end in the contest.
“It’s an honor for him. It’s a good ending to a good career for him. Signing at UWA was real special for him and they felt like they got a special football player,” Sweet Water head coach Stacy Luker said of the 6-3, 225-pound Morgan. “When he got the opportunity to play in this North-South game, he was real excited about it. We’re proud of him. He’s represented Sweet Water real well.”
Joining Morgan in the game will be Linden High School defensive lineman Kevan Rembert, who will play his college football at Stillman College.
“I think he’s definitely deserving of it. He’s playing on the next level. He just wants to play. It doesn’t matter where he is playing,” Linden head coach Andro Williams said of Rembert. “I’ll be interested to see how he does in it. He’s easy to get along with. He’s one of the those types that can get along with anybody.”
Rembert, a 6-2, 250-pound interior lineman, started for three years for the Patriots after arriving in Linden before his sophomore year.
“I thought he grew up tremendously,” Williams said of Rembert’s progression over the course of his time in Linden. “He was one of those kind that was always looking to get better in every phase. It’s not about what he’s doing or how he’s doing. He just loves to play. He won the Patriot Award here. We were tickled to death to have him here and it was a real honor to coach him.”
Rembert and Morgan will be joined at the game by Williams, who will serve as an assistant coach for the South team. This marks the second time Williams has participated in the affair, last coaching in it in 2008.
Other regional personalities appearing in the game are Selma High head coach Leroy Miles, Selma’s Darion Alexander and Roderick Brewer, Thomasville’s Myles Clayton and Mason Crocker, and the Jackson trio of Dustyn Moseley, Kyle Poellnitz and Elliott Pugh.
