Case, Fortenberry to play MAIS All-Star game

Published 1:00 pm Wednesday, December 1, 2021

Brookhaven Academy will be represented by a pair of seniors Friday in the MAIS 4A-5A-6A All-Star game.

Senior specialist Corey Case will kick and punt for the White Team in the game played at Jackson Prep. Case is also a soccer standout for the Cougars and has been booming balls through the back of the endzone for touchbacks since joining the varsity as an eighth-grader.

Case is playing for a squad coached by Philip Wasson of Tri-County Academy. The Blue Team is coached by Derek White of Presbyterian Christian School and will count BA senior quarterback Tyler Fortenberry as one of its members.

With six total quarterbacks listed on the 38-man roster, Fortenberry may also see time as a defensive back. Fortenberry was the catalyst for BA reaching the MAIS 4A quarterfinals. He threw 33 touchdowns and just one interception in 2021.

Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m.
