LAURINBURG — The rosters for the 69th annual East-West All-Star football game have been released and the Fighting Scots football team will be sending two players — seniors Karfa Kaba and Amir McNeill.

The seniors learned last month they would be representing Scotland County in the game and the full rosters were released last week.

Kaba and McNeill were key contributors to the Scots defense this past season and will continue their football careers together in the fall at North Carolina A&T University.

An all-SEC selection Kaba, a defensive linemen, had 49 solo tackles, nine sacks, two fumble recoveries and caused a fumble to help the Scots defense hold opponents to less than 20 points per game.

McNeill also received All-SEC honors in the secondary leading the team with three interceptions. McNeill finished the year with 44 solo tackles, one quarterback sack and a fumble recovery.

They will be joined on the sidelines by Scotland head coach Richard Bailey, who was selected to coach the East team. Bailey will be assisted by Wake Forest’s Reggie Lucas, West Johnston’s Samuel Hales, East Carteret’s Caleb King, East Duplin’s Jack Holley and Rocky Mount’s Jason Battle.

Lumberton’s Tyriek McCallum was the other player from the Southeastern conference selected to play in the game.

The 69th annual East-West All-Star football game will be held in Greensboro at Robert D. Jamison Stadium on Wednesday, July 19 at 8 p.m. There will be a fireworks show at halftime.
