The high school football season may be over but some of the Lowcountry's best are getting one last chance to prove themselves at the North-South All Star game in Myrtle Beach this week. The 88 players selected have spent the week practicing and getting to know their teammates, leading into the showdown this Saturday at 12:30 at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

"It's a great honor, because you know there is a lot of competition down there, and to be selected as one of the best, I feel great about it," says Terrell Green, a wide receiver from Hanahan High School.

Sean Smith, a tight end from Summerville who was also selected chimes in, "It's a privilege as the coaches pick me to represent the school. Getting selected here means they like my tape enough, and hopefully I'll represent the school and my family well."

Practicing all week alongside other star players is a great gauge of talent, and huge opportunity for these guys to measure up. For instance, the Hawks wide receiver has no problem measuring up at 6'4 but Green does admit the talent is at a whole new level. "It's hard. Its kind of exhausting really."

Green has an offer from Charleston Southern, and is gaining interest from Tusculum and Newberry College as well. This final high school showdown is certainly a chance to prove he is worth it. "I'm seeing what would probably happen in college, the competition it would be, and so we are out here just trying to get each other better and fight."

Whether this will be their final week in cleats and pads or not, Saturday is the day to leave it all out on the field. Smith says he is not shying away from the opportunity, and is instead embracing the competition. "It just shows where your talent is, and shows if you can compete with the best or not, because if you are going to try and play at the next level, you have got to compete with the best every time."

In total, 11 Lowcountry players were invited and are playing in the game. Green is the only representative from Hanahan, but Smith is joined by the GreenWave kicker, David Kennedy. Also playing are Trevor Pederson of Wando, Omar McRae and Jordan Barnes from Goose Creek High School, Corey Rawlings of Fort Dorchester, Brett Toth and Bobby Ruff of West Ashley, and Jourdan Johnson and Cecil Smith of Stratford High School.

The game will be held this Saturday at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is at 12:30. For more information, go to their website.
