32 AHSAA Events Set for NFHS Network through Oct. 10 Andalusia at Thomasville is AHSAA’s Feature Game on the NFHS Network Friday night

   MONTGOMERY – The NFHS Network has 25 AHSAA football games and seven volleyball matches scheduled to be live-streamed, beginning tonight and running through Tuesday, Oct. 10. All contests are being produced by AHSAA member schools participating in the NFHS Network School Broadcast Program or by third-party NFHS Network producers.
      Headlining the volleyball action tonight is a Class 7A battle of powerhouses, defending state champion Mountain Brook at red-hot Hoover. The Lady Bucs reeled off 10 wins last week to claim their own tourney.
    One varsity football game tonight features Dothan and unbeaten Sidney Lanier.
    Friday’s football lineup is one of the strongest yet with the AHSAA’s NFHS Network featured game pitting Andalusia (5-1) at unbeaten Thomasville (5-0) in a game that will go a long way in deciding the champion of Class 4A, Region 1. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Two of Class 4A’s premier coaches will be on the sidelines, Bulldogs’ head coach Trent Taylor and Tigers’ head coach Jack Hankins. Taylor, 211-126 in 30 seasons, has guided Andalusia to a 28-5 record since taking over in 2015.  Hankins, who has been the head coach at Thomasville since 2002, has compiled a 144-47 record – all at his current school. His 2010 Tigers won the Class 4A state title and finished 15-0.
     Among the other top games is unbeaten Thompson (5-0) at Vestavia Hills (3-2) in Class 7A, Region 3.

AHSAA mourns death of Andalusia’s Ethel Robertson

    MONTGOMERY – The Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) is saddened to learn of the death of retired Andalusia teacher Ethel Robertson, the wife of AHSAA Hall of Fame Coach Richard Robertson. She passed away Sunday night after a long illness.
   Mrs. Robertson accompanied Coach Robertson, the long-time boys’ basketball coach at Andalusia High School (AHS) and former president of the AHSAA Central Board of Control, to many school and AHSAA functions in this state and across the nation. She was one of AHS’s biggest supporters and will be sorely missed.
      “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Richard and the entire Robertson family,” AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese said. “Ethel and Richard Robertson have been a long-time personal friends of ours and an even longer friend to the AHSAA. Her love for her husband and family, for high school sports and for the many student-athletes they mentored together will be a lasting legacy. She was indeed a great lady of strong faith. She and her husband have taught us all how to serve by their example of a servant’s heart.”
     The memorial service will at First Baptist Church of Andalusia on Saturday, September at 2 p.m.


26 AHSAA Events Set for NFHS Network Carver vs. Sidney Lanier AHSAA’s NFHS Featured Game of the Week Friday

MONTGOMERY – A season-high 31 events are scheduled to be live-streamed over the NFHS Network this weekend by AHSAA member schools, and another 10 are already set for next Monday and Tuesday.
      One junior varsity and six varsity volleyball matches are on tap tonight. AHSAA member schools will also be live-streaming two football games tonight and 22 on Friday.
    The AHSAA’s NFHS featured game Friday will be Carver-Montgomery (1-3) vs. unbeaten Sidney Lanier (4-0) at Cramton Bowl. The Poets of Coach Marvin Cunningham are off to the school’s fastest start since 2000. The school, which has a 585-400-39 all-time record, has one of the richest histories of any program in the AHSAA. Lanier won the first three 4A state championships in 1966, 1967 and 1968 after the playoffs were installed in ’66. The school also captured mythical state titles in 1920, 1922, 1928, 1939, 1957, 1961 and 1864.
     Eleven players have reached the NFL from Sidney Lanier, including NFL Hall of Famer Bart Starr, who was the MVP of Super I and II in 1967 and 1968.  The Poets are 2-0 in Region 2 and averaging 39.8 points per game this season, third best in Class 6A. The defense is allowing only 6.5 ppg, ranked second in 6A. Carver, coached by first-year head coach Willie Spears, opened with three losses but is 1-0 in region play after beating Dothan 48-20 last week. The Wolverines are averaging 15.8 ppg and allowing 21.8. Carver’s history also runs deep. The Wolverines were 9-1 in 1966 – reaching the Alabama Interscholastic Athletic Association (AIAA) finals the same year the Poets won the first AHSAA’s state playoff championship.
     Other top games include unbeaten Leeds (4-0) at Class 4A defending state champion Handley (0-3), unbeaten Carroll of Ozark (3-0) at Eufaula (3-1), Opelika (3-1) at unbeaten Benjamin Russell (3-0), Hartselle (3-1) at Muscle Shoals (3-1) and Foley (2-2) at McGill-Toolen Catholic (3-0) at Mobile.
     Cullman High School’s School Broadcast Program and Vestavia Hills High School’s School Broadcast Program are live-streaming five volleyball matches tonight. Cullman is producing its matches with Brewer and Danville scheduled to be played at Brewer High School at Somerville. Cullman will also live-stream its football game at home Friday night versus Fort Payne.  Vestavia Hills is live-streaming its volleyball matches versus Guntersville and Clay-Chalkville and will also live-stream the Guntersville vs. Clay-Chalkville match also being played at VHHS. Mountain Brook High School will live-stream its middle school game with Hewitt-Trussville today at 5 p.m. MBHS will also live-stream its junior varsity volleyball match at home against Bob Jones and its varsity match versus Tuscaloosa County today as well.
    Friday night’s slate includes at least one game in each classification. In Class 1A, Sweet Water (2-1) will live-stream its Region 1 game versus much improved J.F. Shields (1-3) at Beatrice; in Class 2A, undefeated Goshen (3-0) will live-stream its Region 3 battle with defending region champion Elba (2-1); and in Class 3A, unbeaten Geneva (3-0) is live-streaming its Region 2 home game versus Providence Christian ((2-2).
     Three games are scheduled on the NFHS Network in Class 4A, two in Class 5A, nine in Class 6A and five in Class 7A.  The Hartselle-Florence game in Class 6A, Region 8 is being live-streamed Friday night by both schools.
    Seven AHSAA events are scheduled to be live-streamed Monday, Sept. 25, over the NFHS Network including one freshman and three varsity volleyball matches, one freshman and two junior varsity football games. The Hoover High School Broadcast Program will live-stream its JV and varsity volleyball matches with Pelham on Tuesday, Sept., 26, and Cullman will live-stream its first swimming event of the season that same day.

FHSAA Launches Hurricane Relief Assistance Program for Member Schools

FHSAA Launches Hurricane Relief Assistance Program for Member Schools

GAINESVILLE, Fla.(9/19/17) – In an effort to serve member schools impacted by Hurricane Irma, the FHSAA has launched a portal on its website to help schools connect with businesses, community members and others to aid in the replacement of equipment or other items that were destroyed or lost by the storm.

The Association has been inundated with phone calls and emails across the country from schools and state associations looking to help member schools affected by the hurricane. In order to better organize the requests, the FHSAA created a portal located at https://www.fhsaa.org/hurricane-relief.

“Hurricane Irma impacted our state and our membership in so many different ways. We wanted to provide a mechanism for those in need to connect directly with people and organizations who can assist,” said FHSAA Executive Director George Tomyn. “It is our hope that this portal will allow the FHSAA membership, residents of Florida, and anyone who wants to help, an opportunity to provide direct support.”

The portal was designed to connect schools with groups or individuals that can assist and expedite the delivery of goods to the schools as quickly as possible. Schools affected by the storm are encouraged to visit https://www.fhsaa.org/hurricane-relief, click the “Add New Request” button, and list what items they are most in need of. In addition, those seeking to assist schools in Florida can also visit the portal and post along with a description of their available donation. All ads will be posted at FHSAA.org.

For more updates on how you can help FHSAA schools devastated by Hurricane Irma, follow the Association on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat by searching for “FHSAA”.

AHSAA Prep Spotlight for Week 2 Ja’Quan Myles’ 2 Kickoff Returns Lifts Daphne to Win and AHSAA Prep Spotlight

MONTGOMERY -- Sophomore Ja’Quan Myles returned two kickoffs for touchdowns Friday night to lead Daphne High School to a key 26-20 Class 6A, Region 1 football victory over Saraland to land in the AHSAA Spotlight for Week 2 of the 2017 football season.
    Trojans head coach Kenny King said it was a first for him in his coaching career. He said it also helped drive home something he has been preaching to his players since his arrival back at his alma mater as head coach last season.
    “Our defense has been playing well all year, but our offense has been struggling,” King said. “Our special teams play has more or less been neutral. You must win two of those three areas in a game to have a chance to win the game.”
    King said he did witness two kickoff returns in a single game once before – during his NFL career when the Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears returned two versus King and his Arizona Cardinals teammates.
    “It was good to be on the other side this time,” King said. “We tell our players if everyone does their job then it is possible to return a kickoff for a touchdown. Still, when it happens it is still a shock. We had a lot of high fives and chest bumps on the sideline Friday night. We had to have both returns to win the game.”
    Myles returned a kickoff in the second quarter 95 yards just moments after Saraland had taken the lead, and then opened the second half with an 82-yard return to score. He became just the 15th player in AHSAA history to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in a game, according to the AHSAA Record Book found online at http://www.ahsaa.com/Sports/Football/Football-Individual-Records.
    Randolph’s Sam Kimel was the last player to accomplish the feat, returning two kickoffs versus DAR in 2016. Kimel’s 81 and 78-yard returns were sandwiched around a 92-yard kickoff return for a TD by DAR’s Brayden Lewis, earning both schools a spot in the record book. The back-to-back-to-back returns for TDs was just the second time that feat had been accomplished in NFHS history, according to the NFHS Record Book. Elba and Vincent were the first two schools to return three kickoffs in a row – in a Class 2A playoff game in 2011.
    John Arnett of Coffee Springs was the first player reported to return two kickoffs for scores in an AHSAA game in 1971 versus J.U. Blacksher of Uriah in a 44-22 loss.
    Myles’ performance overshadowed a strong effort by Saraland senior quarterback Jack West. The Stanford commitment was a perfect 15-for-15 passing in the second half and finished 25-of-30 overall for 192 yards and a touchdown in 26-20 loss.
   In other highlights reported for Week 2:

MILESTONES
SARDIS SHOCKS MADISON ACADEMY … AGAIN:

Madison Academy has won 55 of its last 58 region games this decade – losing to Madison County 32-28 last year. Of the three losses, Sardis has won two.  The Lions beat Madison Academy, 28-14, in the second week of the 2011 season, and the Mustangs started its 38-game region win streak the next week.

CROSSVILLE GETS RARE WIN OVER SCOTTSBORO: Crossville (2-0), coached by Miles Holcomb, scored 21 straight points to take a 21-0 lead, then held off a Scottsboro comeback to win 28-21.

ARITON DEFENSE TURNS IN BIG PLAY IN OT: Ariton defensive back Josh Sullivan knocked down a Cottonwood pass on a two-point try in overtime to seal a 14-13 win over the Bears.

LAUDERDALE COUNTY WINS ON LAST PLAY OF GAME: Tigers won on the last play of the game to beat West Morgan 21-15. The Rebels tied the game just 54 seconds earlier.

Logan Mangum led LCHS with 224 yards rushing on 34 carries in the win.
