Panthers pound Falkville

The Cleveland Panthers limited visiting Falkville to just 131 yards of offense and cruised to a 28-7 victory last Friday night.

Caleb Collum got the […]

Hornets run past Vinemont

The visiting Locust Fork Hornets built a 14-0 lead but needed a late surge to get past Vinemont 35-20 last Friday night.

Wadley wallops Appalachian

The Wadley Bulldogs jumped out to a 31-0 lead and cruised to a 59-7 victory over visiting Appalachian last Friday night.

Game of the year this week?


Week 3 of the high school football season is this week and there are a couple of games on the schedule this week that are legitimate game of the year candidates. First of all, Locust Fork at J.B. Pennington is huge for a lot of reasons. It’s county-on-county, of course, but this one shapes up to be an almost must-win […]


Wildcats get by Warriors

Hayden opened region play at home last Friday against the winless West Point Warriors and the Wildcats came out on top 14-6 in a defensive struggle.

Tigers come back against Broncos

The J.B. Pennington Tigers rolled up 522 yards of offense and needed every precious inch on the night in a 34-32 comeback win at Holly Pond last Friday. The Tigers got down 14-0 after one quarter and trailed until the late stages of the fourth quarter. Pennington finally got some offense going in the second quarter as Travis Cleveland hit […]

Redskins hold off Wildcats

The Oneonta Redskins trailed 7-0 after one quarter but then built a 21-7 halftime lead and held on in the second half for a 21-14 victory at White Plains last Friday night. After the Wildcats scored late in the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead, the Redskins got a 51-yard punt return for a score from Marquette White to […]

Addison rolled up more than 375 yards on the ground while Southeastern was forced to go to the air throughout the game because of a Bulldog defensive front that was simply […]
