Chilton County will be well represented at the Alabama All-Stars Sports Week.

Three county varsity athletes, including one from Thorsby, and two coaches have been chosen to participate in the event, which began July 10 in Montgomery and will last through Thursday.

Thorsby’s Erick Camarillo and Maplesville’s Hunter McCay will compete in the all-star football game for the South team, which will be coached by Maplesville’s Brent Hubbert, while Chilton County’s Kipp Moore will play in the baseball game for the South squad, which will be coached by Mooore’s varsity coach, Josey Shannon.

Coaches nominate players for All-Star Sports Week, which features the state’s best performers in several sports competing against each other after being split into North and South teams.

The football game will be played at 7 p.m. Thursday at Cramton Bowl.

Camarillo, a THS graduate who was one of the county’s leading tacklers in each of the past three seasons as a linebacker in addition to playing offensive line, has declared his intention to play at Faulkner University in the fall.
