Marshall players, coach going to all-star game
By BARRY BURLESON
Marshall Academy will be well represented in the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools All-Star Football Game.
Two senior Patriots, Kevin Fitzpatrick and Chase Ferrell, will play for the North, and their head coach, Barrett Donahoe, will be one of the assistants.
The all-star contest will kick off this Friday, Dec. 2, at 4 p.m. at Mississippi College in Clinton.
Quarterback Fitzpatrick passed for 2,100 yards this season and rushed for 1,100. He was selected Co-District 1-AA most valuable player, sharing the honor with junior Tyler Pirtle, quarterback for North Delta.
Running back Ferrell had almost 1,300 yards rushing and almost 400 yards receiving.
The Patriots, in Donahoe’s first season at the helm, were eliminated from the playoffs in the north half championship game and finished 11-2. It was the third most wins in school history. The Pats won 13 in 1988 and 12 in 2007.
Head coach of the North is Brian Pickens of Leake Academy. Other assistant coaches are Jimmy Hicks of Tunica Academy, a former coach at Marshall, and Philip Wasson of Washington School.
Other District 1-AA players in the all-star game include Breland Marrett of Carroll Academy, Dustin Roncali of Indianola Academy, Cade Moody of Kirk Academy and Blake Snyder and Sy Pritchard of North Delta.
