ALBANY, GA (WALB) - While college coaches know the talent of the five star recruits there are other high school players who want to show they can play at the next level.

Many of them will have a chance to do that in the two all-star games in the next two weeks.

On Saturday, high school seniors from the Valdosta area will battle players from North Florida at Valdosta High's Cleveland Field.

On January 15th, Moultrie will host a second Border Wars game between players from the Cairo, Thomasville and Albany areas versus the top players from the Florida big bend area.

This much talent will certainly attract college coaches from all classifications



Border Wars vice-president Mike Sammons said. "Our heart is to help the guys the coaches think deserve a second chance. They can go Division II, Division III or NAIA. We don't care where they go. It is worth $100,000 on any level because as long as they get a scholarship that is all that matters."

The first Border Wars game is 2:00 p.m. Saturday at Cleveland Field.

The second is 2:00 p.m. Saturday January 15th at Mack Tharpe Stadium in Moultrie.
