29 AHSAA Events Set for NFHS Network Oct. 19-24 Park Crossing versus Sidney Lanier Is Featured AHSAA Game of the Week on NFHS Network

   MONTGOMERY – A total of 29 AHSAA sports contests or events are scheduled to be live-streamed over the NFHS Network tonight through next Wednesday by AHSAA member schools. That brings the total to more than 180 AHSAA contests live-streamed over the NFHS Network since the 2017-18 school year kicked off in late August.
      Among the events will be a bowling tri-match to be live-streamed by the Cullman High School Broadcast Program on Tuesday, Oct. 24. Six volleyball contests and 22 football games are slated for tonight through Wednesday, Oct. 25.
     Two football games will by live-streamed tonight, 19 on Friday and one on Saturday as the AHSAA region races heat up with many key battles that will go a long way in deciding the state playoff participants.
     Two volleyball events include area tournaments in Class 6A, Area 2 (Monday) and Class 4A, Area 16 on Tuesday. Spanish Fort and Wilson high schools will be live-streaming selected matches from the two tourneys, respectively.
        The AHSAA’s NFHS Network School Broadcast Program Game of the Week Friday will be at Cramton Bowl where Park Crossing (7-1) takes on undefeated Sidney Lanier (7-0) in a game that will decide the Class 6A, Region 2 champion. Montgomery’s Public School SBP (Montgomery Sports Net) will be live-streaming the game over the NFHS Network.
      The Thunderbirds of Coach Smitty Grider are averaging 44.0 points a game and allowing 15.0. Sidney Lanier, coached by Marvin Cunningham, is 7-0. The Poets, led by talented senior quarterback James Foster, are scoring 36.4 point and yielding only 8.1, second only to Homewood in Class 6A this season.
     Lanier is off to the school’s best start since 2000. Montgomery’s oldest high school is 588-400-9 in over 107 seasons since playing football for the first time in 1910. Park Crossing is Montgomery newest public high school in just its fourth year of existence. Grider’s team has compiled a 35-8 record during that stretch including a 13-1 season in 2016 that ended in the Class 6A semifinals. The Thunderbirds are 20-2 over the last two years.
      Also on the line is the Montgomery Public Schools championship. Lanier is 3-0 in games versus the other county schools, Park Crossing is 2-1 and Robert E. Lee is 3-1 with a loss to Lanier and a win over Park Crossing. Grider’s team has won six straight since that 28-17 loss.
