 2018 Preview 


       Andalusia completed the 2017 season with a 12-2 record. Last year Andalusia captured the region one title and a number one seed in the Class 4A playoffs. They finished region play with a 6-0 record. Andalusia made a nice playoff run in 2017, reaching the semi-finals before falling to a very good UMS-Wright team by the score of 35-28.

       The 539 points scored by the Bulldogs last year were a team record in a single season.

       Over the past two seasons the Bulldogs have gone 24-4 and will be looking to continue that winning tradition. As one of the best football programs in the state since 2010, Andalusia has gone a combined 73-22. Their 77.0% winning percentage ranks 2nd in Class 4A over the past eight seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Andalusia has managed to compile a record of 149-118. Their 56.0% winning percentage ranks 16th in Class 4A and 137th in the AHSAA. Their last losing season was 2008.




       The Bulldogs are led by head coach Trent Taylor who is entering his fourth season at the helm. He has compiled a record of 35-6 over the past three seasons at Andalusia. Under his direction the Bulldogs have qualified for the playoffs a total of three times. They have won three region crowns with Coach Taylor.

       Coach Taylor's overall record as a head football coach in thirty season stands at 218-127 (63.2%). His 218 wins rank 10th among active coaches in the AHSAA. Over the course of his career, Coach Taylor's teams have qualified for the playoffs a total of twenty-five times and won seven region championships.

       The Andalusia Bulldogs will play in Class 4A region one during the 2018 season. Andalusia will face six opponents that reached the playoffs last season.

       Region one will be one of the most competitive regions in any classification this season.

       The Bulldogs enter the 2018 season riding a 9 game regular season winning streak. The Bulldogs should be considered one of the favorites for the region one championship this season and a home game in the first round of the playoffs. Don't be surprised if the Bulldogs are making another deep run into the playoffs.

      

       The Bulldogs open the 2018 season on the road against non-region opponent Saraland on Friday, August 24 at Spartans Stadium. Last year the Saraland Spartans finished with an overall record of 8-4 and in third place in Class 6A region one. The Spartans lost in the second round of the Class 6A playoffs to Hillcrest Tuscaloosa by a score of 34-27.

       This will be the second meeting between Andalusia and Saraland on the football field. The Bulldogs have a 0-1-0 record against the Spartans. They last met in with

       Andalusia returns 4A All-State  running back Roosevelt Weaver III. He was named to the honorable mention team last season.
