Woody, a senior defensive lineman, has been picked to play in the WCHS-8, Fox 11 West Virginia North-South All-Star Football Classic, which is scheduled to be played on June 16 at Charleston’s Laidley Field.
Practices are set to begin on Monday, June 11 at West Virginia State.
Woody joins a pair of other Logan County gridders on the South All-Star roster in Joe Street and David Toney from Logan High School.
The head coach of the South All-Star team is Chapmanville’s George Barker.
On Barker’s staff are two of his Chapmanville assistants — defensive coordinator Bo Berry and offensive coordinator Rob Dial — along with Mitch Estep of River View High School.
Barker has had much success at Chapmanville since coming to his alma mater from Logan High School at the beginning of the 2004 season.
Barker has been given credit for turning around the Tiger football program and has led Chapmanville to five straight Class AA playoff appearances and six winning seasons in a row. In eight years, Barker has a 50-39 coaching mark with the Tigers in his return stint at Chapmanville, including a 45-24 record the last six grid campaigns.
Last season was the high water mark as Chapmanville advanced to the Class AA state semifinals for the first time in school history as the Tigers fell 33-13 at Point Pleasant to finish the season with a 9-4 record.
The Tigers advanced to last fall’s semifinals after knocking off Lincoln (26-7) and Braxton County (20-14) in road playoff games.
Woody, a 6-foot-1, 265-pound lineman, played a big part in the Tigers’ success last year as he was the team leader on defense.
In the 2011 grid campaign, Woody was Chapmanville’s leading tackler and recorded 12 quarterback sacks.
