Tuscaloosa Academy Football takes the field this Thursday
It's hard to believe with how fast things are going in 2021. One of things that many look to is the return of high school football. While we have to wait a little bit longer, Tuscaloosa Academy has planned a Spring Jamboree to showcase what's coming for the Knights in the fall as well bringing in other teams from the AISA to sharpen the skills.
The Knights are looking to improve after last years 2-8 season finish, Tuscaloosa Academy also finished 5th in AISA AAA Region 2 play. With the hiring of Josh Wright, it's the beginning of a new era for Tuscaloosa Academy. It won't just be Tuscaloosa Academy taking the field however, Banks Academy and Escambia Academy will also be taking the field in scrimmage as well.
Escambia Academy comes to the Jamboree off a 10-2 season, and finishing a perfect 4-0 in AISA AA Region 2 play. Banks Academy joins the Jamboree looking to improve after their last season ended with a 1-9 record, and going winless in AISA AA Region 1. All teams' JV and varsity squads will take the field.
The schedule is as follows:
5 PM : JV Scrimmage
5:30 PM : Tuscaloosa Academy JV vs Escambia Academy JV
