Released by Azalea Orthopedics:
TYLER, TX - The Azalea Orthopedics All-Star high school basketball games have been set for April 2, 2011 at the Wagstaff Gymnasium on the Tyler Junior College campus.
The game, which is in its eighth year, is sponsored by Azalea Orthopedics. The Classic gives high school seniors in the East Texas area the opportunity to showcase their talent for colleges and hometown fans.
"We are pleased to announce this year's coaches for both the girls and boys for the All-Star Classic," said Dan Fuller, Azalea head athletic trainer and coordinator of the annual event. They are as follows:
Girls East Dana Irvin from Daingerfield HS
Girls West Keith Durrett from LaPoynor HS
Boys East Burt Langley from West Rusk HS
Boys West Jeremy Jenkins from Cayuga HS
Fuller says that players for the tournament will be released sometime this week. Area seniors are nominated by their high school coaches and are selected by an All Star selection panel. "In the past we have had some very talented athletes play in these games, we are very fortunate to continue with that tradition," explains Fuller. He also added that areas of East and West divide teams geographically.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. April 2. The girl's game time is slated for 5:30 p.m. with the boy's game to follow at approximately 7:00 p.m. Ticket prices are $6.00 for adult and $3.00 for children under the age of 10.
