Two area teams will play for football state championships later this week, and here are the stories you can expect to come from this Super (6) week:
Tuesday: Bob does the job — Despite an impressive 14-year career that includes more than 100 wins, nearly 20 playoff victories and a dozen winning seasons, Hartselle head coach Bob Godsey will coach in his first state championship game Thursday night against Vigor.
For Wednesday: Hartselle heritage — Two current Hartselle High defensive linemen, Alec Durand and Blair Sittason, have fathers who were on the last Tigers team to play for a state championship in 1981. David Sittation and Russell Durand were both members of the 1981 squad that lost 39-20 to Eufala in the state championship game. David Sittason was a senior fullback and linebacker, while Russell Durand was a sophomore on the practice squad.
Don’t forget about the D – The Rattlers’ defense has been overshadowed by an offense that’s scoring nearly 45 points per game. Don’t forget about the D.
For Thursday: Hartselle vs. Vigor, the game of the century. It’s not quite Alabama-LSU, but it does draw comparisons. Here’s hoping the team in crimson and white wins this time.
