  2022 Predictions
      Clarke County won their first ever state championship in football last year but will have some major competition from a new foe this year if they wish to repeat. The Fyffe Red Devils will have something to say about any team wishing to compete for a title in 2A this season. The Red Devils move back down to 2A after a spending the last two years in 3A. All they did in 3A was finish 27-2 and a win another state championship.

      While Coach Benefield's Red Devils will be the team to beat this season, Clarke County should be right there in the mix for a championship come December. Lanett's schedule is once again very difficult but come playoff time they will be primed for a championship run. Cleveland has a new coach but should still be in the mix all season with a very managable region schedule.

      Coach Kilcrease at Ariton will return all-state running back Jordan Smith and could make some noise along with Highland Home.

      Class 2A appears to be one of the most balanced classifications across the board when it comes to the strength of each region. The most competitive regions appear to be seven, four and two. These three are balanced with several in each capable of winning the region crown. Regions eight, six and one will struggle to find four quality playoff caliber teams.
