MCHS Seniors Eric Bright, Zack Sprenkle, LaDarius Robinson, Cody Lange, Bud Smith, Victor Davis, James Monlyn and Shaun Davis were chosen to play in the All-Star War of the Border Game in Moultrie, Ga., on Jan. 16. The War of the Border is an annual game that showcases the best players in the area. According to the War of the Border website, 60 top senior football players from North Florida suit up against 60 players from South Georgia to battle for football supremacy. The game provides a way for athletes to showcase their skills to college coaches and recruiters and gives them a chance to win a football scholarship. Florida and Georgia duked it out on Friday, Jan. 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Mack Tharpe Stadium in Moultrie, Ga. Best of all, Florida beat Georgia, 20-17. Our very own Cowboys Head Coach, Mike Coe, was chosen as the Florida team’s head coach. “It is always a big deal when you can coach your seniors one more time and that is the sole reason I agreed to be the Head Coach for Team Florida,” said Coe. “I was able to spend one more week with the eight young men chosen from Madison County.” He is very proud of the seniors who represented Madison. Coe iterated: “This group of seniors will always be one that I remember forever, for their relentless work ethic and ability to eliminate outside clutter and negativity. They showed up every week, eager to learn and work. I am honored and proud that I was able to coach them this season and in this game.” Madison’s seniors played impressively at the all star game. In fact, Coach Coe raved about James Monlyn’s key interception during the 3rd quarter. In addition, Eric Bright was chosen as one of the Florida team captains. The Cowboys and Coach Coe were accompanied by MCHS coaches Jim Ertzberger and Bobby Hutchinson, who were assistant coaches during the game. Neighboring school, Aucilla Christian Academy, was also represented in the War of the Border, by wide receiver, Timmy Burrus, and defensive lineman, Cole Schwab.
