Carter and Griffin to Coach Teams in

16th Annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl High School All-Star Game


Memphis – Jerome Griffin and David Carter, two of the top coaches in the Memphis area, will lead the teams in the 16th annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl High School All-Star Football Game presented by ARS/Conway Services and the Tennessee Highway Safety Office. Griffin, the head coach at Wooddale High School, will coach the Red Team. Carter, the head coach at St. George’s Independent School, will coach the Blue Team. The All-Star Game will feature the top players from Shelby County Schools and private schools in the Memphis area.

The game will be played Saturday, December 9 at Memphis University School. Kickoff is at 2:30 pm. Tickets cost $10, for kids 6 and under the cost is $5. The All-Star Game will be telecast live on WLMT CW30 and broadcast on radio by Sports 56/87.7 FM.

“The AutoZone Liberty Bowl All-Star Game is now well established and entrenched as one of the marquee events on the local high school scene,” said AutoZone Liberty Bowl executive director Steve Ehrhart. “With two of the most outstanding coaches from Memphis leading the teams, we will continue the tradition of excellence the All-Star Game has created over the past fifteen years.”

Jerome Griffin is in his second season as head coach at Wooddale and his thirteenth season overall as a head coach. He served eight seasons as head coach at Sheffield High School, followed by three seasons at Hamilton High School before taking over the Wooddale program in 2016. His teams have been perennial participants in the state playoffs. Griffin’s rebuilding Wooddale team has a record of 5-3 this season. He served as an assistant coach in the All-Star Game the last three years.

“The AutoZone Liberty Bowl All-Star Game gives Memphis a chance to showcase the abundance of talent in the Memphis area,” said Griffin. “It gives many seniors one last opportunity to go out as a winner in their final high school game if they didn’t win the state championship. It’s a great way to kick-off the activities for the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.”

David Carter began his head coaching career in 2010 at SBEC (Northpoint Christian School). He was named head coach at St. George’s in 2013. His Gryphon’s team was State Runner-Up in 2013, reached the State Semi-Finals in 2014 and 2016 and won the State Championship in 2015 with a 13-1 record. Carter served as an assistant coach in the All-Star Game the last three seasons.

“The AutoZone Liberty Bowl All-Star Game gives the fans an opportunity to see local talent that, in many cases, they have only heard or read about,” said Carter. “Because of the exposure the game has created over the past years, there has been an increase in appreciation for the overall talent that Memphis and Shelby County have at all levels.”

The All-Star teams will be chosen by a selection committee comprised of area head coaches and other football analysts.

Each team will consist of players selected from the following schools. Each player must have the recommendation of his head coach and will be selected on the basis of his character, on-field achievement and classroom performance. Player nominations must be submitted to the AutoZone Liberty Bowl by Friday, October 20.
