Last year the Autauga Academy Generals reached the AISA-AA State Championship game only to fall just short of claiming a title. They were defeated by Escambia Academy in the State Championship game 30-20 in Troy.

       Over the past two seasons the Generals have gone 25-1 and will be looking to continue that winning tradition. As one of the best football programs in the state since 2010, Autauga Academy has gone a combined 77-22. Their 78.0% winning percentage ranks 1st in Class AA over the past eight seasons.
