Class 1A Schools Mars Hill Bible, South Lamar Lead AHSAA Scoring Leaders after Week 3

    MONTGOMERY – Defending Class 1A state football champion Mars Hill Bible is averaging 59.7 points per game (ppg) heading into week four’s games to lead the AHSAA in points scored per game. South Lamar High School tops the state’s defenses with three shutouts in three games thus far.
    The Panthers (3-0) of Coach Darrell Higgins scored 732 points in 15 games last season (48.8 ppg) en route to the school’s first state football state title in 2018. Class 4A North Jackson’s 56.4 ppg last season on the way to an 11-1 overall record led the AHSAA last year. Mars Hill was second. Two other Class 1A schools are right on their heels this season, however. Brantley (3-0) is averaging 56.3 ppg and Isabella (3-0) is averaging 53.3.
    South Lamar (3-0), which is currently ranked fourth in Class 1A with 49.7 ppg, yielded just 13.6 ppg last season on the way to a 12-1 record. Coach Clay Gilliam’s Stallions is at home versus Hubbertville Friday in a key Region 6 contest. Mars Hill is on the road at Cherokee in a Region 8 battle.
    Defending Class 2A state champion Fyffe (3-0) yielded a field goal in last week’s 24-3 win over Collinsville and is averaging 1.0 points per game allowed thus far this season to rank second behind South Lamar. The Red Devils of Coach Paul Benefield notched the school’s 18th consecutive victory in the process. Fyffe goes on the road Friday to take on Asbury in a Region 8 contest. 
    Isabella and Class 2A Ranburne (3-0) are tied for third (2.3 ppg) allowing only one touchdown in three games thus far this season. The Mustangs   face a difficult task this week hosting last year’s Class 1A state runner-up Linden on Friday. Ranburne’s Bulldogs, coached by Stephen Bailey and averaging a 2A-leading 50.7 ppg on offense, hosts Cleveland in Class 2A, Region 6 action this week. The Panthers (1-2) are averaging 36.6 ppg.
    In addition to Mars Hill Bible (1A), other class scoring leaders this week are Class 2A Ohatchee and Ranburne (50.7 ppg); Class 3A Pike Road (53.3 ppg); Class 4A Brooks (51.3 ppg); Class 5A Etowah (45.3 ppg); Class 6A Muscle Shoals (46.3 ppg); and Class 7A Vestavia Hills (46.3 ppg).
