 2016 Preview 

       Phil Campbell completed the 2015 season with a 4-7 record. With their 3-3 region record and a fourth place finish in Class 2A region eight, the Bobcats earned a spot in the playoffs in 2015. Phil Campbell's season came to an end in the first round of the playoffs when they fell to Tanner by a score of 73-7.

       The Bobcats last playoff victory came during the 2000 season. They would love to break through this year with a post season win.

       Phil Campbell struggled on the defensive side of the football last year. The defense found little success in stopping opposing offenses as they gave up an average of 35.5 points a game.

       Since 2010, the Phil Campbell football program has struggled with a record of 16-46.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Phil Campbell has managed to compile a record of 93-171. Their 35.0% winning percentage ranks 47th in Class 2A and 320th in the AHSAA. Their last winning season was 2001.

       The Bobcats are led by head coach Ryan Swinney who is entering his fourth season at the helm. He has compiled a record of 8-24 over the past three seasons at Phil Campbell. Under his direction the Bobcats have qualified for the playoffs a total of two times. They have not won a region crown with Coach Swinney.

       The Phil Campbell Bobcats will play in Class 2A region eight during the 2016 season.
