Two RHS seniors to play in AHSAA North-South All-Star football game
Cameron DeArman was playing a golf match when he found out – and not playing well, by his own standards. “Coach Heaton told my dad in the middle of it,” he said, “and my dad told me, and I started playing great just because my mood changed. I was so shocked.”
The shockingly exciting news was his selection to the AHSAA North-South All-Star football game. Coach Mark Heaton got word that both DeArman and Austin Bohannon have been selected to participate.
Bohannon was actually signing to continue his baseball career at Shelton State when Heaton passed the news along to him.
“I’m not going to play college football, so this is my last game I’ll ever play,” Bohannon said. “I’m looking forward to it.”
They are both pumped about “playing high school football one more time.”
“When we lost back in the fall, we were just so upset,” DeArman said. “Now that we know we get one more chance to play high school football, it’s just awesome. It’s just a great feeling.”
And for Bohannon and DeArman, even better than being part of this statewide game is being part of it together – one last hurrah.
“I’m getting to play with one of my best friends again,” DeArman said. “The positions we played, we were always side-by-side the entire. It’s just fun to have my best friend right there beside me.”
The North-South All-Star game brings together the top athletes in Alabama from the just-graduated senior class.
