UMS-Wright takes over as the team with the longest winning streak in the AHSAA having posted 7 consecutive victories after defeating Mobile Christian by a score of 37-7. Monroe Academy leads the AISA with a 16 game winning streak following a 18-16 win over Bessemer Academy.

   *  Hoover has been ranked by the ASWA for an amazing 199 consecutive polls dating back to the 2000 season. The Bucs opened the 2018 season in a very familiar spot as the #1 team in 7A.

Florence shutout Buckhorn to record only their third shutout in school history. It had been 142 games since they held Wilson scoreless in 2005. Carbon Hill shutout Dora to record their first shutout since defeating Cordova 17-0 in 2004.

   *  Foley was shutout for the third consecutive game. Something that had not happened since the 1970 football season.
