The North Carolina Coaches Association is pleased to announce that the East-West All-Star Football Game will return to Jamieson Stadium in 2014. Phil Weaver, director

of the all-star games for the NCCA, stated: “After consultation with the association Board of Directors, I determined that playing in the stadium named for the founder of the NCCA was important. Other significant factors were the proximity of Jamieson Stadium to our clinic at the Greensboro Coliseum, the renovation of Jamieson Stadium and its parking facilities, and the location of the NCCA’s office adjacent to the stadium.”
Mr. Weaver continued, “The support of the people of High Point, the Police and Fire Departments, and the personnel associated with A.J. Simeon Stadium made our stay there very enjoyable. We remain grateful to them for stepping into the breach and saving the 2013 game.”


The East-West game was played at Simeon Stadium this season because of renovations to Jamison stadium. Jamison Stadium, which is located on the campus of Greensboro-Grimsley High School, has hosted the East-West game since its inception in 1948. The West, which leads the all-time series 38-26-1, won this year's game, 14-7.
