The fourth installment of the Georgia Elite Classic is poised for an all-star marathon on December 29 at McEachern High School that will showcase five games for the first time.
Last year saw the annual junior all-star game add a sophomore game for the first time. The sophomore and junior all-star games will once again cap off the three days of activities, practice and competition. Before the final two games, however, will be a seventh grade game, an eighth grade game and a senior game for the first time.
The seventh grade game will start at 9 a.m., and with neighboring practice fields surrounding the stadium, the next teams can start warming up on schedule to keep the event running seamlessly. The eighth grade game is slated for an 11 a.m. kickoff. At 1 p.m. is an intriguing new format that will showcase the state's top uncommitted seniors. The selection process for the senior game will begin in November and this will give college football hopefuls a chance to gain interest and boost their rank as National Signing Day sits several weeks away.
