       Morgan Academy completed the 2015 season with a 4-6 record.

       The Senators have not qualified for the playoffs since the 2011 season and would love to end that streak this year.

       Since 2010, Morgan Academy has gone a combined 26-37. Their 41.0% winning percentage ranks 11th in Class AAA over the past six seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Morgan Academy has gone a combined 204-88. Their 70.0% winning percentage ranks 1st in Class AAA and 1st in the AISA.

Jake Wingo leaves Morgan Academy after two seasons as the head football coach. His teams went 5-15 over those couple of years.

Josh Thacker becomes the new head football coach at Morgan Academy. He spent the last three seasons at Pickens Academy as the head coach where his teams compiled a 18-16 overall record including 1-3 in the playoffs.

       Coach Thacker's overall record as a head football coach in three season stands at 18-16 (52.9%). Over the course of his career, Coach Thacker's teams have qualified for the playoffs a total of three times .

       The Morgan Academy Senators will play in Class AAA region two during the 2016 season. Following realignment, the Senators remain in AAA but move from region one over to region two.
