Now that Coach Bivens has gotten acclimated into 5A Region 3, Central High has the potential to make a momentous step in Year 2. While a playoff appearance might not be in the cards for 2021, it will certainly be a step forward.
After announcing his retirement following the 2020 season, Hilliker changed his mind. An undefeated home record and a successful region slate for their first year in 4A Region 5 proved that there was work to be done in Samantha, Alabama.
In a battle of defense, Pinson Valley (12-2) walked away victorious. The Indians defeated Spanish Fort (11-4) 23-13 to win the 6A State Title. This third state championship continues an impressive run for Pinson Valley during the 2010s. The Indians also won the legendary “blue map” in 2017 and 2018, which means this is the team’s third title in four years.
Friday is the last day of high school football until August, but it could be the best. From a storybook season for a small team to two 6A powerhouses battling for bragging rights, this final day of the “Super Seven” will have it all.
Thursday will be a big day for high school football fans in central Alabama. Four teams from the middle part of the state- Linden, Pickens County, Montgomery Catholic, and Pleasant Grove- will all be playing for glory across the state.
