AHSAA Prep Spotlight for Week 5 G.W. Long’s ‘Big Foot’ Belongs To 127-pound Senior Garrett Sanders

     BIRMINGHAM – G.W. Long High School’s 5-foot-7, 127-pound senior Garrett Sanders wears many hats for the Rebels football team of Coach Scott Horne. Last Friday night it was his foot, however, that provided the winning push as Long (4-0) knocked off New Brockton 31-28. 

    Sanders booted a booming 47-yard field goal as time expired to give G.W. Long the win and catapulted him into the AHSAA Prep Spotlight for Week 5 of the 2016 football season.
    But his heroics did not begin with the kick. It capped a dramatic fourth-quarter that included 31 points being scored in the last 7:35. It featured three touchdowns in the last two minutes.
    Dothan Eagle sportswriter David Mundee shared his description of the final seconds.
    Sanders ran eight yards and got out of bounds with 3.4 seconds left to set up his winning field goal. He also kicked all four of his team’s extra points and had two punts for 94 yards, including a 42-yarder that was downed at the 1-yard line and a 52-yarder that turned the field with two minutes remaining in the game.  Sanders finished with 86 yards rushing and one score on 10 carries and caught two passes for 55 yards.
    The final quarter opened in a 14-14 tie. The Rebels, starting on the final play of the third quarter, moved 67 yards in nine plays with 7:25 left with Mackenzie Hicks scoring his second TD of the game on a 4-yard run.
    New Brockton, coached by Justin Jones, tied the game again it on the ensuing series, capitalizing on a 59-yard Clay Kelley kickoff return. Quarterback Dalton Adkison ran it on five straight plays, scoring on a 1-yard quarterback sneak with 5:24 left. Max Weeks’ extra point tied it at 21.
    The Gamecocks held G.W. Long on the ensuing series, but Sanders turned the field position with his booming 52-yard punt to the New Brockton 20-yard line.  On the next play, Rebels defensive end Jamel Beaty intercepted a Gamecocks pitch and ran 22 yards to the New Brockton 7. One play later Sanders scored, taking a speed sweep to the left before cutting inside at the edge for the touchdown and with 1:45 left, G.W. Long led 28-21.
      The Gamecocks, though, were undaunted. Kelley ignited New Brockton with a 25-yard kickoff return. Starting at the Long 43-yard line, it took just five plays as Adkison connected with receiver Joseph Smith for the tying touchdown with 24.1 seconds left.
     The Rebels got the ball at their own 48 and two plays later Sanders hauled in an 18-yard pass and got out of bounds at the 30 with time for one final play.  The snap, the hold and the kick were perfect as the Rebels pulled out the win.
      “I just wanted to be calm, take my time and get a good kick in,” Sanders said.
Horne said right before the kick he and his coaches were discussing different options, including a long pass play. “I know you might not believe this, but we don’t kick field goals in practice,” Horne said. “We had two options of what we wanted to do and we went with option two and he made it. Sometimes you make the right call and sometimes you don’t. It worked out for us. He made a great kick. The guys up front (on the line) held up and it went through.”
   Horne said the intense game was much needed. “You want to be in a game like this before the playoffs,” he said.
    New Brockton’s Jones also recognized the classic intensity. After the handshakes he screamed, “Second round. Let’s do this again.”
    Jones also praised both sides. “Their kids made plays and our kids made plays all night long, back and forth. It was a heck of a ball game.”
    Sanders’ effort edged out a big performance from Ohatchee running back Austin Tucker and Montevallo quarterback Zac Oden.  Tucker rushed for 209 yards and scored five touchdowns as unbeaten Ohatchee (6-0) downed Ashville 54-20, improving to 6-0 for the first time since 2000. Tucker, who now had 1,053 yards rushing and 16 rushing TDs on the season, scored on runs of 9, 47, 11 and 18 yards. He also had a 20-yard TD catch.
    Oden w
as 23-of-40 passing for 298 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 107 yards on 17 carries as the Bulldogs beat Bibb County 37-27. It was Montevallo’s first win over the Choctaws since 2004.

MILESTONE
VESTAVIA CLAIMS SCHOOL’S 350TH WIN:  Vestavia Hills running back Toliver Chatwood had 16 carries for 150 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-12 win over Helena as the Rebels, coached by Buddy Anderson, recorded the 350th win of the school’s program now in its 47th year. The school has won 65.8% of its games while compiling a 350-182-1 record during that span.
     Anderson, who is in his 39th year as head coach, is 323-137-0 and ranks first in the AHSAA for football head-coaching wins. His 323 wins ties another former Alabama coach, Paul “Bear” Bryant, who retired as the University of Alabama’s head football coach after the 1982 season with a career record of 323-82-17. Bryant’s record for the Crimson Tide was 232-46-9 over 25 seasons from 1958-1982.
    Five other AHSAA high school coaches have won 300 or more games – Walton Tucker (309), Jamie Riggs (305), Glenn Daniel (302) and Jimmie Moore (317) and Robert Herring (301). Moore, however, won 226 games in Mississippi, Herring won 154 games outside Alabama and Tucker won 25 games at non-AHSAA member schools. Anderson is the only coach currently still coaching.

AHSAA Schools Recognized for Excellence by NFHS Network

    MONTGOMERY – Hoover High School’s NFHS Network School Broadcast Program earned the NFHS Network School Broadcast Program’s highest award, elite status, for the 2015-16 school year, according to an announcement from the NFHS Network.
     The SBP program produced by Hoover High School and its instructor Jeff Lloyd was the AHSAA’s only school to receive the Elite status.  Nine others earned NFHS Network Select status: Albertville, Baldwin County of Nay Minette, Boaz, Florence, Hartselle, Jacksonville, McGill-Toolen Catholic of Mobile, Prattville and Saraland high schools.
    Each summer the NFHS Network recognizes schools in the School Broadcast Program that have done an outstanding job throughout the previous school year. Elite and Select schools demonstrate professional, excellent broadcasting skills while covering sports and other events at their schools. These schools distinguished themselves as leaders among the 1,500+ schools involved in the School Broadcast Program, and the NFHS Network applauds them for their continued dedication and contributions to the Network.
     Florence High School’s NFHS School Broadcast Program has been a leader nationally with its quality broadcasting and was recognized in 2015 and 2016 for its excellence in broadcasting. Directed by Randy Bruce, a faculty member and coach at Florence, the student-run live-streaming broadcast network was named NFHS Network’s Best Live Sports Broadcast for both years. Florence also was a finalist for best original programming in the 2015-16 school year. Albertville High School’s Tyler May was one of three finalists for NFHS Network Teacher of the Year.
    The NFHS Network’s School Broadcast Program is continuing to add schools from the AHSAA with more than 40 AHSAA contests live-streamed last weekend through the NFHS Network’s School Broadcast Program platform.
    The AHSAA applauds these schools and hope that all our schools continue to strive to produce outstanding programming for their NFHS Network SBP.
    We continue to be amazed at the quality of the coverage and the talents of our student broadcasters and look forward to viewing our schools’ NFHS Network productions this school year.


AHSAA Central Regional Basketball Tournament Moving to Montgomery’s Garrett Coliseum

     MONTGOMERY – The Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) is moving the Central Regional Basketball Tournament from Alabama State University to Montgomery’s historic Garrett Coliseum. The change was announced by AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese Thursday.
    Alabama State, which hosted the tournament from 2007-2015 at Dunn-Oliver Acadome, opted out of the remainder of its contact.
    The contract with Garrett Coliseum, which seats 8,500 with capacity to add up to 4,000 more seats, will be for three years (2017, 2018 and 2019). The 2017 tournament is scheduled for Feb. 16-22 and will feature 28 boys’ and 28 girls’ teams, four each in seven classifications, qualifying through earlier rounds of the AHSAA state playoffs. The regional winners will advance to the 95th annual AHSAA State Basketball Tournament in Birmingham the following week (Feb. 27-March 4).
    “We thank Alabama State University for serving as a site for this tournament,” Savarese said. “We are also very excited about the Central Regional at Garrett Coliseum. This arena has so much history. We have an outstanding relationship with the City of Montgomery. They already host many AHSAA events including the state baseball and softball championships, super sectional wrestling and super regional volleyball championships. We truly believe playing at Garrett Coliseum will be a memorable experience for our member schools and team participants.”
    Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange expressed similar sentiments.
   “The AHSAA Central Regional Basketball Tournament is a time-honored tradition in the River Region, and we're ecstatic to continue this partnership as we will now call Garrett Coliseum home,” Strange said. “Without hesitation, we offered to help find a way to keep this tournament in our community and further build on our credentials as the sports capital of Alabama. Not only does it complement the current athletic offerings and events happening in Montgomery, but it also provides students, their families and friends with an opportunity to experience the revitalization across our community while exploring what has been named America's Best Historic City, as well as the ‘Capital of Dreams’.”
     Garrett Coliseum, which opened in 1953, has a rich history with the sport of basketball going all the way back to 1955. Auburn University played Coach Adolph Rupp’s Kentucky Wildcats on Feb. 4, 1955 in what would be the first of five games played by the perennial SEC powerhouse.  Kentucky, which began the 1955-56 season ranked No. 2 in the nation, won that first game 82-81 over the Tigers, and returned on Feb. 26 to lose to Alabama’s famed Rocket Eight 101-77 in what is still considered one of the biggest wins in Crimson Tide history.
    Kentucky beat Alabama 45-43 in overtime at Garrett Coliseum in 1958 and downed the Tide 75-55 in 1960. The final game of the Wildcats’ series was a 99-79 win over Auburn in 1964.  Garrett Coliseum also hosted the Blue-Gray Classic college basketball tournament for many years as well as a variety of local high school games and other college games. Most recently, Garrett Coliseum has hosted the Harlem Globetrotters basketball show.
    More than 25 million patrons have attended events at Garrett Coliseum, which is best known for its concerts featuring entertainers such as Lionel Richie and the Commodores, Prince, Elvis Presley, Kenny Rogers, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, Elton John, Hank Williams and the Globe Trotters. It also hosts many other events including the annual Alabama National Fair, rodeos, professional wrestling and a variety of other major entertainment events.
    The AHSAA basketball playoffs include regional tournaments at three other regional sites: Dothan Civic Center (South Regional); Jacksonville State University’s Pete Mathews Coliseum (Northeast Regional); and Wallace State-Hanceville’s Tom Drake Coliseum (Northwest Regional).
    The AHSAA began its regional tournament format in 1994 with ASU as the site of its Central  Regional. In 1995 it was renamed the Southeast Regional and moved to Troy University where it remained until 2007. The Southeast Regional name was changed back to the Central Regional in 2007 when it returned to Montgomery and ASU and Troy, became the site of the South Regional the next three years. South Alabama hosted the South Regional from 2010-12 and Dothan Civic Center has been the host since 2013. The Central Regional remained at ASU the last nine years.
   Approximately two million fans have attended the regionals since 1994 with more than 400,000 attending the Central Regional during that time span.

New Brockton Forfeits Football Contest

     New Brockton High School has been fined, placed on probation for one year and ordered to forfeit one varsity football game victory for violating AHSAA eligibility rules. The school self-reported the violation.
     New Brockton played an ineligible student in violation of the “Transfer Rule”. The school must forfeit all contests its team won in which the student participated. New Brockton forfeited its 34-20 win over Georgiana.  The probationary period is a warning that other violations of this nature could bring further sanctions against the school.
