Roster, Coaches Announced For Azalea All-Star Game

The Azalea Orthopedics All-Star high school basketball players have been chosen for April 12, 2008 at the UT Tyler Patriot Center on the UT Tyler campus. The games, which are in their fifth year, feature talented high school players from all over East Texas.

Seniors were nominated by their high school coaches and selected by an All Star selection panel.  "Over the last few weeks we have received close to 100 nominations from area schools," explains Dan Fuller, Azalea Orthopedics head trainer and coordinator of the event.  Fuller says players are selected according to geographical regions East and West of Tyler, Texas.  "This year's teams for both boys and girls will pit all region and all-state players on each team with all district players to round out the rosters," added Fuller.

Coaches for this year's Boys All-Star game are Wally Dawkins, head coach of the 4A Regional Semifinalist Whitehouse Wildcats and Jay Jameson, head coach for the Edgewood Bulldogs who finished their season as Regional Semifinalist in the 2A division this year.

The Girls game will be coached by Jeff Smith, head coach of TAPPS 5A Grace Cougars and Greg Gay, head coach of the Bullard Lady Panthers, the 3A Regional Quarterfinalist.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m., April 12, 2008.  The Girls game is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. with the Boys game following at 7:00 p.m.  Ticket prices are $6.00 for adults and $3.00 for children under the age of 10.
