Rashaan Evans and Tre Williams led Team Alabama to a 21-17 win over Mississippi in Saturday's all-star football game at Cramton Bowl.

Montgomery, Ala.--In a slugfest featuring big plays from both sides, Alabama took down Mississippi 21-17 on Saturday in Cramton Bowl behind the play of MVP Rashaan Evans and Auburn commitment Tre Williams on defense.

Finishing with eight tackles, one sack, one interception return for a touchdown, four tackles for losses and three quarterback pressures, Evans was all over the field for the Alabama team in the annual high school all-star football game as he dominated from start to finish.

Not to be outdone, Williams led both teams in tackles with 12 and also had a tackle for a loss in the win.

Also on the defensive side of the ball cornerback Stephen Roberts had a solid day as well. Finishing with three tackles, the Auburn commitment had one of the biggest plays of the game late in the fourth quarter when he broke up a fourth down attempt from the two-yard line with just over three minutes left and Alabama holding onto a slim four-point lead.

Tre Williams was all over the field on Saturday.

Also an Auburn commitment, Justin Thornton finished with a pair of tackles, but was active on the defensive front.

Running back Racean Thomas did not play after injuring his ankle during the week of practice. Fellow running back commitment Kamryn Pettway took the ACT Saturday morning at Alabama State and was late getting to Cramton Bowl for Saturday's game. He finished with five carries for 16 yards in the win.

One of the most impressive performers in the game was Demopolis High standout Demetrius Kemp. A player Auburn continues to look at as a safety and currently a Wake Forest commitment, Kemp caught three passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns for the Alabama All-Stars.
