A trio of LaGrange High football players will get to wear the same uniform one more time.

The Alabama-Georgia High School Indoor Classic will be played Feb. 8 at the Columbus Civic Center, and the rosters for the teams were revealed last week.

The game will be played at 8 p.m. at the Columbus Civic Center, and admission is $12,

The three LaGrange players will be on Team Blue, which is mostly made up of players from Alabama, but also includes a handful of players from Georgia.

Team Red is composed of players from Columbus.

The LaGrange players will be Wynton Heard, Dazmon Dunlap and Hayden Olive.

One Callaway player, Deon Smith, will also be a part of Team Blue.

The rosters were selected by members of the Columbus Lions’ coaching staff, with area coaches sending in their nominations.

The game was on hiatus for the past two years, but the decision was made to renew the game this year.

The Georgia team won the previous three games.

Heard, Dunlap and Olive were key players for the Grangers in 2013.

Dunlap was a standout defensive lineman, Heard was the starting quarterback, and Olive was one of the top wide receivers.

Smith, meanwhile, was a member of a dominant Callaway defensive line.

Smith helped the Cavaliers go 12-2 and make it to the state semifinals.

WHEN: Feb. 8, 8 p.m.
