Congratulations to Tyler Moore and Gavin Olson who were selected to play in the 17th annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl High School All-Star Game on Saturday, December 8 at 2:30 p.m. at Memphis University School's Stokes Stadium. Coach Johnny Allen will coach the red team.
Johnny Allen has been coaching high school football for more than twenty years. He’s in his third season as head coach at Harding Academy and his seventh season overall as a head coach, with four years at Rossville Christian Academy. Allen has also worked as defensive coordinator at Briarcrest, White Station and CBHS. Allen’s Harding team has reached the state playoffs the past two years. Allen served as an assistant coach in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl High School All-Star Game in 2017.
“The AutoZone Liberty Bowl High School All-Star Game gives the fans an opportunity to see local talent that, in many cases, they have only heard or read about,” said Allen. “Because of the exposure the game has created over the past years, there has been an increase in appreciation for the overall talent that Memphis and Shelby County have at all levels.” ~ WREG
