Border Battle: Alabama vs. Mississippi – High School Football

Every year in December, the top players in Alabama and the top players in Mississippi get together in Mobile, Ala., for a competitive all-star matchup for state border bragging rights. But why wait until December when you can play out the matchup on paper in July?

Traditionally, the state of Alabama has been the more productive state of the two when it comes to sending prospects on to college and seeing them move on to the NFL. However, a relatively down year for talent in Alabama this year and a relatively strong year for talent in Mississippi make a potential matchup of each state’s elite very intriguing.
