Preseason


The 2021 season begins this week with a partial schedule of games. Here are a few tidbits entering the season.

   *  Before we get to the usual things here, I want inform our fans that we are still here. While it has been an unusual and strange off season, we are looking forward to a different and much better season. Hopefully we will be able to forget about last season and produce our regular content as we did for many seasons prior to 2020. As you may very well know any game not played this season is subject to forfeiture by the team cancelling the game. We do ask that if you see something wrong on the website pertaining to a game score please let us know and it will be corrected. Thanks to all the fans who constantly work to assist me with this project throughout the year.

   *  Fayette County has an opportunity to do something no other team in Alabama has ever accomplished. They will become the first team with 700 victories with just one more win. The Tigers start the season against Winfield next Thursday night. If they fail to garner an early season victory look for the T.R. Miller Tigers to be the first team to reach the 700 win mark as they open the season with 698 all-time wins.

   *  Hoover has been ranked by the ASWA for an amazing 232 consecutive polls dating back to the 2000 season. The Bucs open the 2020 season as the #2 team in 7A and face a powerful North Gwinnett Georgia team at home.

   *  Fyffe with a string of forty-five consecutive victories will be kicking off the 2021 football season against Isabella on August 20th. The Red Devils have a shot at the all-time record for the longest winning streak in Alabama if they can put together another ten wins during the regular season. Clay County won 55 straight games between 1994-1997.

   *   Barbour County has high hopes of ending a string of sixty-six consecutive losses this season. The Jaguars were saddled with six losses last season without fielding a team due to forfeits and Covid-19. They are followed by Columbia (52) and Brindlee Mountain (34). Barbour County could surpass the state's longest losing streak in history held by R.C. Hatch at 68 losses in a row.

   *   Fyffe has a streak of 39 consecutive region wins with no signs of slowing down this year. The Red Devils open region play in a couple of weeks. Lanett (25)and Etowah (25) are the next two schools with long region winning streaks.

   *   Brindlee Mountain has lost 50 consecutive region games but do not begin region play for a couple of weeks. Barbour County has lost 45 straight region contests.

   *  The Fyffe Red Devils have won 58 straight regular season games. They surpassed the old record of 56 games set by Prattville a few years ago. Pike Road is well behind with a string of 20 consecutive regular season wins.

   *   Fyffe also enters the 2021 season with a string of 49 consecutive home wins. Mars Hill is a distant second with a streak of 26 straight home victories.

   *   Fyffe also holds onto the longest road winning streak having won 16 consecutive road games.

   *   Gordo will try to extend their streak of 28 straight winning seasons. Gordo has won at least ten games in the last seven seasons so they show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The Green Wave last suffered through a losing season way back in 1992 when they finished with a 4-6 record. Oneonta owns the longest streak all-time when they won more games than they lost every year between 1956-1994. Demopolis (26) and Opelika (25) are not far behind.

   *   Fyffe can tie an unknown record by winning ten games this year. They are currently tied with Hazlewood (1987-96) and Hoover (2008-17) with ten consecutive seasons with at least ten wins. They have an opportunity to tie Russellville (2000-10) for the most ten win seasons in a row.

   *   Fyffe hopes to avoid the dreaded shutout and extend their streak of consecutive games scoring. They are currently sitting on a string of 279 games without being shutout. T.R. Miller sits atop this list with a string of 354 games.

   *   One more note for Fyffe and we will be done with them for this week. The Red Devils have scored 20 or more points in 70 consecutive games. The record belongs to Clay-Chalkville at 80 set back in 2016.

   *   The Luverne Tigers will be working hard to extend their string of qualifying for the playoffs to 39 consecutive seasons with second year coach Jason Rowell. He is the eighth different coach during the streak. The last time they did not qualify for the playoffs was way back in 1982.

   *   Vina has suffered through thirty consecutive losing seasons. The Red Devils finished last year with a 1-9 record. That is the second longest in history behind only R.C. Hatch with a string of 36 straight losing seasons.

   *   With a record of 699-357-35, Fayette County could very well become the first team to reach 700 victories this season. T.R. Miller could very well join them early this season with 698 wins.

   *   No less than a dozen different coaches will be in search of their 100th win as a head football coach once the season opens. All have over 90 victories during their careers.

Great Moments in Alabama High School Football History

In 1969 the two point conversion was adopted for play following a touchdown. Until that time all conversions were worth one point.
