 2016 Preview 

       Falkville completed the 2015 season with a 9-3 record. With their 5-1 region record and a second place finish in Class 2A region six, the Blue Devils earned a spot in the playoffs in 2015. Falkville reached the second round of the playoffs before falling to Randolph County by a score of 56-27.

       No team at Falkville ever won more games in a season than the nine victories last year. The 427 points scored by the Blue Devils last year were a team record in a single season. The Blue Devils hope to continue the success they had last season. Coach Schrenk saw improvement as they won nine games following a 4-6 record in 2014.

       Since 2010, Falkville has gone a combined 30-33. Their 48.0% winning percentage ranks 30th in Class 2A over the past six seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Falkville has managed to compile a record of 103-157. Their 40.0% winning percentage ranks 41st in Class 2A and 281st in the AHSAA.

       The Blue Devils are led by head coach Joel Schrenk who is entering his fifth season at the helm. He has compiled a record of 28-15 over the past four seasons at Falkville.

       The Falkville Blue Devils will play in Class 2A region seven during the 2016 season. Following realignment, the Blue Devils remain in 2A but move from region six over to region seven. The Blue Devils have one of the toughest schedules in Class 2A. Their opponents had a combined record of 64-47 last season. That ranks 5th in Class 2A and 57th in the AHSAA.
