The goal of every high school football program revolves around one mission, winning the state championship

While the journey started during off-season workouts in July and August, 14 teams will look to finish the season as champions.

Two west Alabama area teams are looking to hoist a state championship trophy from Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium.


#5 Aliceville (13-1) vs. #1 Fyffe (14-0)

The No. 5 Aliceville Yellow Jackets are enjoying one of their most memorable seasons in school history as the top ranked Fyffe Red Devils awaits Aliceville in the Class 2A Championship Game.

Aliceville took a 28-21 win against second ranked G.W. Long in last week’s semifinals. Jamar Richardson scored the deciding touchdown on an 87-yard run with less than three minutes left in the game. Demontez Hinton added two scores in the victory.

Fyffe is making their third consecutive Class 2A Championship Game appearance after winning the 2014 state title and coming up short in last year’s championship game. The Red Devils are led by star running back Dilan Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick has rushed for over 2,000 yards this season. The star running back rushed for 310 yards on 25 carries and six touchdowns in their 53-20 quarterfinal round win over LaFayette two weeks ago.

An Aliceville win would clinch their first state title since 2000. Friday’s clash marks the first meeting between the two schools. Kickoff is set for Friday at 3 PM


Pickens County (11-3) vs. #1 Maplesville (13-0)

The Class 1A Championship Game features two teams that met at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the 2013 Class 1A Championship Game. Pickens County is looking to win their second state title in school history while Maplesville tries to take home their third straight state championship.

The Tornadoes reached the championship round after a dominating 23-6 win against No. 3 Addison. Senior quarterback Zach Thomas completed 10 of 20 passes for 197 yards, rushed for 67 yards, added a rushing and passing touchdown and kicked a 22-yard field goal. Pickens County held Addison scoreless until the Bulldogs punched it in on the last play of the game.

Top ranked Maplesville takes a 22-game winning streak into Thursday’s championship game. Senior Terence Dunlap and junior Nathaniel Watson. Both Dunlap and Watson have scored at least one touchdown in every postseason game this season. In last week’s 36-14 win over No. 2 Linden, Watson took over with two scores in the second half.

Maplesville leads the all-time series 3-1. Kickoff is set for Thursday at 3 PM.
