Three prep football players from East Mississippi have been selected to play for the Magnolia state in this year's Mississippi-Alabama all-star game.

Louisville quarterback Wyatt Roberts and his teammate, linebacker Jeremy Sangster will be joined by Meridian High School defensive back C.J. Hampton when they line up against Alabama in the annual high school showcase.

Hampton, who occasionally lines up at receiver for Meridian, has committed to play at Ole Miss and keeps in contact with Head Coach Hugh Freeze. However, the 6'2", 195 lb safety is still being pursued by other schools.

The Wildcats of Louisville are 7-0, thanks largely to a prolific passing game lead by Roberts and a group of seniors at receiver. Mississippi Gridiron magazine reports Roberts is one of only two quarterbacks on the Magnolia State's roster.

Sangster leads a defense that allows less than five points per game. Louisville held an explosive Philadelphia offense to just six points when the two met on September 13th.

The Wildcats won, 19-6.

The All-Star game will be played this December. The Alabama squad has won the last five meetings.
