MONTGOMERY — Defending state champion McGill-Toolen Catholic High School senior quarterback Bubba Thompson and senior receiver Larry Rembert pulled out a 27-23 victory in dramatic fashion over Enterprise in the Class 7A state playoffs last week to grab the AHSAA Prep Spotlight for the second round of the state football playoffs.
Trailing 23-20 with 1:04 remaining, the Yellow Jackets of Coach Caleb Ross were backed up to their own 15-yard line when Rembert, who had two catches for 125 yards, lined up on the right side and streaked downfield. Thompson heaved a strike the receiver hauled in near midfield in stride on the way to a game-winning 85-yard touchdown pass.
The victory extended the AHSAA’s current longest football winning streak to 21 games and advanced the Yellow Jackets (12-0) to the Class 7A state semifinals to face Central-Phenix City (10-1) Friday night. The game will be at Archbishop Lipscomb Athletic Complex in Mobile, home of McGill-Toolen.
Enterprise place-kicker Andrew Osteen put Enterprise (10-2) ahead 23-20 with 2:03 to play with his third field goal of the game to set up the last-ditch heroics of the Jackets’ duo.
Thompson, one of two quarterbacks chosen for the upcoming 30th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game at Cramton Bowl Dec. 10, finished 12-of-19 for 253 yards and two TDs. He also connected with Marlon Williams, also selected for the Alabama-Mississippi Game, for a 6-yard TD earlier in the game.
The McGill-Toolen heroics edged out an outstanding performance by Beauregard running back La’Damian Webb, who rushed for 260 yards and scored six touchdowns (3, 8, 9, 10, 25 and 49 yards) in a 48-20 Class 5A win over Vigor at Prichard Memorial Stadium.

MONTGOMERY -- The second-round Class 2A football playoff game between Elba and Samson postponed last Friday will be played tonight at 7:30 p.m., after the Alabama State Supreme Court ruled Monday on two conflicting Alabama Judicial Court rulings issued last Thursday. The Supreme Court upheld the AHSAA Executive Director’s ruling.
On Thursday, Nov. 10 at 11:42 a.m., the Circuit Court of Geneva County entered an Order that the AHSAA enforce and abide by the decision of the AHSAA Executive Director and the AHSAA District 1 Board that Washington County High School is ineligible for participation in the high school football playoffs. Later that day, at 4:17 p.m., the Circuit Court of Washington County entered an Order enjoining the AHSAA from removing Washington County High School from the playoffs.
Legal Counsel for the AHSAA filed a Petition with the Alabama Supreme Court Thursday night seeking direction as to the Circuit Court Orders.
Washington County High School was removed from the playoffs last week after AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese ruled that Washington County had played an ineligible player in its first playoff game Nov. 4 in violation of the AHSAA Home Rule. WCHS beat Samson in that Class 2A playoff contest. Consequently, Samson was reinstated into the playoffs following Washington County’s removal and advanced to meet Elba in the second round.
WCHS appealed that ruling to AHSAA District 1 and the AHSAA ruling was upheld by that board last Tuesday.
“We are glad to have this matter resolved and on behalf of all our member schools we greatly appreciate the State Supreme Court for ruling so quickly,” Savarese said. “The playoffs will now continue with remaining games to be played according to the playoff schedule.”
MONTGOMERY -- Fourteen unbeaten teams remain advanced through the second round to the quarterfinals of the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) State Football Playoffs. Class 7A teams are advancing to the semifinals.
This week’s games will be played Friday, November 19.
The slate includes 26 games, four each in Classes 1A through 6A, and two in Class 7A. Defending state champion McGill-Toolen Catholic (12-0) goes on the road Friday to Central-Phenix City (10-1) and Hoover (10-2) goes to Gadsden City (7-5) in Friday’s 7A semifinals with the winners advancing to the Super 7 Class 7A championship game Nov. 30 at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
One defending state champion was eliminated Friday night with Andalusia’s 40-0 win over Leeds in Class 4A. Coach Trent Taylor’s Bulldogs (11-1) are on the road again Friday at Tallassee (9-3).
In Class 3A, defending champion Piedmont (12-0) won its 20th straight game with a 38-21 win over Colbert County. The Bulldogs were one of four teams from Region 5 clinching quarterfinal berths – assuring the tough region of a team in the state finals. Piedmont hosts No. 4 qualifier Weaver (9-3) and No. 2 seed Ohatchee (11-1) hosts No. 3 qualifier Randolph County (10-2). Randolph County beat Sylvania 38-24, Ohatchee downed Lauderdale County 49-21 and Weaver beat Lexington 42-0.
Other defending state champions advancing include: Maplesville (11-0) in 1A; St. Paul’s Episcopal (9-3) in 5A; Spanish Fort (10-2) in 6A. Defending 2A state champion Elba’s second-round game was postponed.
Four No. 4 seeds advanced with Weaver winning in 3A, Hokes Bluff (8-4) beating North Jackson 24-14 in Class 4A; Muscle Shoals (7-5) edging Gardendale 17-3 in 6A; and Gadsden City (7-5) knocking off previously unbeaten Hewitt-Trussville 29-28 in 7A.
Unbeaten teams by class advancing include: (Class 1A) Maplesville (11-0); Georgiana (12-0), Linden (12-0), Addison (12-0); (Class 2A) G.W. Long (11-0); Fyffe (12-0); LaFayette (12-0); (Class 3A) Gordo (12-0); Piedmont (12-0); (Class 4A) Rogers (12-0); Class 5A: Carroll (12-0); Scottsboro (12-0); (Class 6A) Park Crossing (12-0); (Class 7A) McGill-Toolen Catholic (12-0).

Raycom Media will announce the contest to be featured next Friday on the Raycom/AHSAA Playoff Game of the Week.

MONTGOMERY – Raycom Media will televise live the Class 5A second-round state football playoff game between defending Class 5A state champion St. Paul’s Episcopal (8-3) and Central-Clay County (9-2) Friday night at Lineville as the Raycom/AHSAA Playoff Game of the Week. To find the cable channel serving your area, go to www.pathwaytotheplayoffs.com or go to www.ahsaa.com and click on the Raycom link.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. and will follow a special Veterans Day presentation to be held just prior to the playing of the National Anthem. Veterans Day is Friday, November 11 and is a day set aside to pay tribute to all Americans who have served in one of the armed forces.
Special recognition will take place at each host school stadium, including the Volunteers’ stadium in Clay County.
“Over the years and across this great nation thousands of individuals in the military forces have served and sacrificed so that we may live free,” AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese said. “We invite our schools to honor local veterans by any means approved by their administration.”
St. Paul’s, coached by Steve Mask, won the 2014 and 2015 state football titled beating Mortimer Jordan in the Super 7 finals at Bryant-Denny Stadium last year and downing Pleasant Grove at Jordan-Hare Stadium in ’14. Coach Kris Herron’s Volunteers are in their third year in Class 5A and in their fifth year of existence. The Clay County School System merged arch-rivals Clay County and Lineville in 2012 – bringing two of the state’s most storied programs together to form the new school located midway between the two communities of Ashland and Lineville. Herron served as head coach at Clay County for three years leading his team to the Super 7 Class 2A finals in his first year as head coach in 2009 and to the 3A semifinals in 2011.
Clay County and Lineville met in the AHSAA’s first Super 6 Class 2A finals at Legion Field in 1996 with Herron on the staff as an assistant coach. Clay set the state record with 55 straight wins during a stretch from 1994 to 1997. The two schools combined for 1,158 wins with Lineville compiling a 575-322-25 record and Clay County, 583-333-38.
The merger of the two schools has been one of the AHSAA’s top success stories of bringing two communities together.

MONTGOMERY – An act of kindness and outstanding sportsmanship captured the AHSAA Prep Spotlight for the first round of the State Football Playoffs.
Saks High School Principal Jody Whaley has nothing but praise for Fayette County High School and its administration – led by Principal Jeremy Madden.
Fayette County hosted the Class 4A, first-round football game versus Saks last Friday with the host Tigers winning the hard-fought game 20-7.
Fayette also won the admiration of Whaley and the large Saks fan base that followed their team to the contest. Their acts off the field and the response it garnered catapulted Fayette and Saks into this week’s Prep Spotlight.
Whaley explained in this poignant email:
“I haven’t missed a single high school football game in the 19 years that I have been a school administrator and I am telling you that Fayette County is the best kept secret in the state. Let me name some of the reasons.
- Fayette County’s principal – He sent me a complete itinerary earlier in the week that provided vital information to my head coach, band director, cheer coach, even my fans. He also answered my phone call one hour before kickoff (the most hectic time possible for a high school principal). I told him our spirit bus broke down 30 miles from the school. He made me feel like we were his number one concern. He told me he would get us some help and that is exactly what he did.”
- The Transportation supervisor – He called me seconds after I hung up with the principal and he told me that mechanics were on the way to the stranded bus. Rather than letting us chance it on a bus that may or may not make it back to Saks High, he provided us with a Fayette County bus to return home in after the game. Countless (other) people from Fayette County pulled over to offer assistance to my students on the stranded bus.
- The Fayette County band students who went out of their way to tell our fans how great our Saks band was.
- All of the Fayette County fans who wanted to know the condition of the Saks player that was carted off and sent to the Fayette County Medical Center. Thank you for your prayers. He was released from the medical center and is going to need to see an orthopedic specialist. It was very noticeable how every single fan in the stadium went to complete silence every time an injured player was getting medical assistance on the field. (Fayette) fans are second to none.
- The two volunteer Fayette County deputies who stayed on our side the entire night to provide us with any assistance we needed (We never needed any).
- The head football coach - (Lance Tucker) personally called me earlier in the week and answered about 20 questions that I had ranging from where to park the band busses to the best three places to eat in Fayette County. He answered every question and he even gave me his personal cell number and told me to call if I had any more questions. FYI, I chose Sam’s Smoke House, WOW!
Whaley said he has heard numerous compliments from Saks fans about the generosity of everyone at Fayette County High School.
“ I’m certain I will hear more as the week goes on. I am going to call their principal and tell (Jeremy Madden) that his entire community deserves an extra 10-minute break for showing so much class.”
