Summary:
           Shades Valley outscored their opponents by nearly 300 points in advancing to the 6A title game with a perfect record. Valley wanted just one more play Saturday at Birmingham's Legion Field, but time expired as quarterback Wilson Whittington's attempt to stop the clock ended with an incomplete pass at the Anniston 16 yard line.
           Late in the game the Mounties drove to the Anniston three yard line and faced a third and goal with 4:17 to play. Whittington threw high into the endzone and the pass was deflected then intercepted by Corey Thomas at the one yard line denying the Mounties a chance at a game winning field goal on fourth down. Dawud Rasheed finished the night with 93 yards on 22 carries to lead the Mounties.
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.
