Murray State University's Stewart Stadium To Host Game

HOPKINSVILLE, Kentucky- The 2010 West Kentucky versus Southern Illinois All Star Game will be held Saturday June 12, 2010 at 7:00 pm, at Roy Stewart Stadium on the campus of Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky. Shawn Berner, head football coach at Fort Campbell High School will serve as the head coach for the West Kentucky All Stars. General admission is $5.00 and coaching cards will be honored.

Steve Lovelace, President of the West Kentucky Football Coaches Association and the Christian County Head Coach stated, "I'm pleased with the support we get from Murray State to hold this event and look forward to working with Coach Hatcher and his staff." The All Star game is an honor bestowed upon athletes providing one last opportunity to play or showcase their talent before college. Shawn Berner said, "I'm honored to have the opportunity to serve as head coach of the West Kentucky All Stars." Berner has also been chosen as the head coach for the Kentucky All Star Game.

Head Coaches Josh McKeel of Calloway County, Joe Morris of Mayfield, and Steve Lovelace of Christian County have worked with Coach Berner and Game Director Tim Havrilek to continue what has become a tradition for West Kentucky Football. Coach Lovelace said, "It's my goal to return our association events back to the prominence and profile we enjoyed just a few short years ago." The association also sponsors the All Conference banquet which was established in the 1920's. The banquet was moved from high school cafeterias to the Curris Center at Murray State in 1993 with the help of former MSU coach Houston Nutt.
