   *   The state's longest region winning streak also belongs to Maplesville who has a string of 51 straight region victories.

   *   Piedmont has the state's longest home winning streak at twenty-five games. The Bulldogs defeated Ohatchee 41-20 on their home field. Monroe Academy (32) lead the AISA schools.

   *   Maplesville and Fyffe have also won 26 consecutive road games following their latest victories.

   *   Maplesville has scored twenty or more points in 45 consecutive games.

   *   Fyffe hopes to avoid the dreaded shutout and extend their streak of consecutive games scoring. They are currently sitting on a string of 229 games without being shutout.

   *   Greene County defeated Aliceville 38-32 for their first win over a ranked team since the 2008 football season.  

   *   Hoover has been ranked by the ASWA for an amazing 194 consecutive polls dating back to the 2000 season. The Bucs are the #2 team in Class 7A.

   *   Scottsboro won the 500th game in the history of the school when they defeated Boaz 30-14 on Friday night.

   *   Did you notice that T.R. Miller and Fayette County are tied atop the all-time wins list. With the Miller loss and the Fayette County victory on Friday both teams have now won 674 games in their respective school's football history.

   *   Did you notice the Luverne and Elba score. Well in case you didn't it was 20-4. When I first saw that one I knew it had to be a mistake. But, it turns out that Elba actually scored on two safeties and the score was 20-4.
