As many of you know, football season can be a busy time for me. It's also a very rewarding time. I get to call High School Football on UTV 44 with Jim Cox, Vick Lockett. Before the call is the preparation, which I might enjoy just as much. Our first match up is this Friday night on UTV 44. Spanish Fort, the number 3 ranked team in Class 6A is at McGill. The Yellow Jackets are ranked number 4 in 7A in the Alabama sports writers preseason poll. McGill has made it to the state title game two of the past three seasons, winning the state championship in 2016. Spanish Fort has been a state champion four times since 2010. Obviously this should be a great way to kick off the 2018 season.
Here are the KSJ Country area teams that are ranked in the preseason:
2A Leroy #1
3A Mobile Christian #2
4A UMS / Wright #1 Clarke Co. #9
5A Vigor #3 Jackson #9
6A Spanish Fort #3 Saraland #8
7A McGill-Toolen #4
