Southern Academy continues to be a force to be reckoned with.
Last week the they put an impressive 35-0 pounding on the South Choctaw Academy Rebels upping their record to 5-0.
Even more impressive is the fact that Southern's defense hasn't let anyone score a single point on them all year.
Southern is a strong favorites to win their division.
South Choctaw fell to 1-4 with last Friday's game. They will be traveling to Jackson Academy Friday night.
Patrician at Marengo
Led by head coach Greg Gibson the Patrician Academy Saints continue to have a good year.
The Saints will be heading to Marengo Friday night for a strong game of AISA football.
The Saints main strength is team unity. They don't put the whole load on one person's back.
The Saints like to spread the wealth between such players as senior quarterback Jason Ethridge, tight end James Grace, and backs Jordan May, Allan Gibson, and John Cornelson.
Tuscaloosa Academy at Sumter Academy
The Sumter Academy Eagles will host rival Tuscaloosa Academy Friday night.
The Eagles stand dead center in a very competitive division, but that hasn't phased them.
Head coach Glen Sanders pushes the Eagles to be the best that they can be. Friday night's game will most likely be an exciting one.
Choctaw County at Sumter County
The Choctaw County Tigers are set for a road trip to visit the Sumter County Wildcats Friday night in what is sure to be a good game.
Last week Choctaw County took a 21-8 win over Livingston while Sumter County pummeled Greensboro 64-32.
The Tigers play with a mixture of seniors and freshman with impressive style.
Despite losing many of last year's star the Tigers continue the tradition of hard-nose Tiger football
The Wildcats have probably been a surprise to a lot of people. The Cats got jumbled a little in the offseason with the exit of some key players.
They have hung strong and proved their point. Knocking down perennial strong Greensboro by a 32 point lead is a good example of Wildcat power.
Friday night's matchup is sure to be explosive.
Aliceville at Livingston
After last week's 21-8 loss to Choctaw County the Livingston Cougars continue to struggle with having a young team and being in a very tough division.
Last year the Cougars were 0-9. This year continues to be rough. Friday night's game with Aliceville may prove good for the Cougars.
Aliceville is strong, but not a traditional powerhouse. After getting beat last year 53-0 the Cougars are going to be ready for Aliceville.
McIntosh at Southern Choctaw
Southern Choctaw will be hosting McIntosh Friday night as they continue to show skills from last year's 10-2 year.
The Indians, led by head coach Larry Boykin, will continue to be a strong rival for everyone in their division.
Southern looks forward to the upcoming Friday night battle with McIntosh.
The Indians will be running a lot with a little bit of long ball passing mixed in.
