The 11th annual Rumble in the South is set for January 15th.
A press conference was held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School on Thursday for players and coaches.
Canton's head coach, Evans Russell, said he's excited to represent the metro.
"It's a great honor for our team to be invited to play in a game like this. We're going to play against what's supposed be the best team in Mississippi," Russell said. "It's a challenge for us. We're taking that challenge seriously, and we want to try to represent the metro area against a team from north Mississippi."
