LAURINBURG — Two Scotland graduates have traveled to Robert B. Jamison Stadium in Greensboro to compete in the 68th annual East West All-Star football game.

Timon McMillian and Mazani Stubbs, both former All-Southeastern Conference players for the Fighting Scots, will don their helmets, cleats and shoulder pads one last time and try to make their Alma Mater proud.

The game is organized by the North Carolina Coaches Association and features some of the top football talent from both sides of the state.

McMillan, an offensive lineman, and Stubbs, a defensive lineman, will represent the East team along with four other players from the SEC — Kyle Corbett of Pinecrest; Devon Hunt and Daryus Skinner of Richmond; and Donovan Wirt of Hoke County. The East team will be led by Fike’s Tom Nelson, and the West will be coached by Hibriten’s Clay Lewis.

McMillan was a three-time all-Southeastern Conference performer during his time with the Scots, and he has signed to play for The University of North Carolina at Pembroke next fall.

McMillan paved the way for SEC Offensive Player of the Year Zamir White, who rushed for a school-record 41 touchdowns last year. The 6-foot-1, 305-pound guard was named the team’s best offensive lineman by head coach Richard Bailey at Scotland’s fall sports banquet.

Stubbs was named to the all-SEC squad his junior and senior seasons — he racked up 59 tackles (14 for loss), five sacks and a fumble recovery in his first year as a starter and followed with 33 tackles (12 for loss), two sacks and a forced fumble during his senior campaign. Bailey named Stubbs the Scots’ best defensive lineman at the end of last season.

The first East-West game was played in 1949 and has featured hundreds of Division I players since. The game begins at 8 p.m. tonight, and there will be a fireworks show at halftime.
