The matchups are Bob Jones at Hoover, Huntsville at Thompson, Vestavia Hills at Austin and Hewitt-Trussville at Florence. Definitely a storyline to watch.

6:45 PM, Record Chaser: Terry Curtis goes for Win No. 347 tonight, which would make him the AHSAA’s single leader in career victories. His UMS team hosts Headland.

The top three players in Alabama in the Class of 2024 — according to the 247 composite rankings — are now all committed. Riddick is No. 2. Clay-Chalkville WR Jaylen Mbakwe (1) and Foley WR Perry Thompson (3) are both committed to Alabama.
