Greenville High School senior Lynn Lewis has been selected to participate in the Alabama High School Athletic Association annual North-South All-Star football game that will take place July 13 during the All-Star Sports Week in Huntsville.

Lewis will play for the south team which will be coached by John Tatum of Montgomery Academy, Jack Hankins of Thomasville, Dan Klages of Eufaula, Eddie Guth of St. Paul's, Brent Hubbert of Maplesville, Ronnie Sikes of Lanett, Norman Dean of Elmore County and Tommy Goodson of Prattville.

During his senior year, Lewis finished with 43 catches for 729 yards and four touchdowns on offense while also finishing with five interceptions, 10 pass break ups and 39 tackles on defense. Lewis was also an integral part of the Tigers' special teams.

&#8220Lynn was, basically, a coach on the field for us,” Greenville head coach Bryant Vincent said. &#8220I think the biggest attribute about Lynn that got overlooked was his knowledge of the game and I think that's what set Lynn above a lot of guys.”
