Four players from Adairsville -- Tripp Abernathy, Tevin Pullum, Dallas Creamer and Vic Beasley -- and one from Cass -- Nic Cowart -- are currently on the rosters and will be available to step on the gridiron at Baylor High School in Chattanooga. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
Todd Windham, head football coach for the Northwest Georgia All-Stars, said his team will have many of the region's top players as Georgia tries to get back on the winning track in the series, led 4-2 by Tennessee.
"Our main concern was that we get the best athletes in this part of the state and I feel we have," Windham said. "As I've been watching them at practice the past day or two, I can't help but think they look a lot like a college team. Of course that's understandable since a lot of them are going on to college."
Windham said the practices have been fun but noted the players and coaching staff are focused on winning Saturday's game.
"We've lost the last two games against Tennessee and we want this to go our way," Windham said. "We want to represent our state, area and region well and get back on the winning track."
Jim Kremer, Adairsville High head coach, said he is looking forward to seeing the four Tigers on the Georgia team play their last high school football game.
"All four are going to play college ball," he said. "We had seven players sign to play in college. In this senior class, there certainly was no lack of talent and now they have an opportunity to get an education and play ball. They have worked hard and it's paying off for them."
Abernathy (a wide receiver) has signed a scholarship to play at Birmingham Southern, Pullum (linebacker) and Creamer (offensive lineman) at Carson Newman, and Beasley (wide receiver) at Clemson.
At least one other Adairsville star could see duty in the game.
Coach Windham said Caitlin Alford, who signed with Georgia Tech, is on the roster but his injury status is unclear.
Bartow County also will be represented by Cass' Cowart (offensive lineman).
Rick Casko, Cass head coach, said he delighted to see Cowart's selection as an all-star.
Two other Cass players also were nominated -- Alex Foster (linebacker) and Kemian Carson (lineman) -- but Casko said their college coaches asked them not to play out of concern that they might be injured.
"They are both expected to make contributions as freshmen," Casko added.
Casko said selection as an all-star is a big honor, adding he has coached the Georgia all-stars twice during the series -- helping account for Georgia's two victories -- and understands the challenge that awaits the team in playing some of Tennessee's best.
"It's great to get a bunch of kids together who are the top players in each of their schools," he said, "and see them try to be the best on the all-star team."
Casko said the game is a good opportunity for the players to play one last high school football game and, potentially, get a last shot at obtaining a college football scholarship offer.
Cass' Cowart is one of those players.
While he'll tell you he is playing the game because he loves it, he would like some attention for a possible scholarship.
"That's what I'm hoping," Cowart said.
But he is playing the game Saturday also with the goal of closing out his high school career with a victory.
"We finished at Cass with a three-game winning streak and I'd like to keep that going," he said.
Casko said he enjoys seeing the camaraderie on the all-star teams.
"For some, this will be the last high school football game they play," he said. "It's a lot of fun for them."
Casko said the all-star game also will bring together many ara players who once competed against one another on the gridiron.
"They meet athletes who they were rivals with and suddenly they are playing on the same team," he said. "That just shows what a great game this sport is -- but it is a game and it is competitive."
