“I am very proud of our comrades for fighting throughout the year and overcoming all adversity through epidemics and a couple of hurricanes,” said Spanish Fort coach Ben Blackmon. “Our kids had to fight. We had to go to our area twice (dropping 2 games each against Blunt and Saraland). There were a lot of positives. We were blessed to have the best kids and a great community. This game didn’t end the way we wanted it to, but they did. I’m proud of how hard they fought throughout. ”

What happened? The strange game of the game took place in the second play of the second quarter. Spanish fort guards partially blocked a piercing by Jaylan McRae deep in the Binson area. Officials on the field recovered the last block of the fort from Binson Scrimmage and ruled that the ball had been returned to the Indians. However, after Blackmon challenged the call, the result was reversed and the ball was delivered to the Spanish fort.
Mark Jones, Director of AHSAA Officers, explained:
“If the receiving team touches or touches a ball beyond the neutral zone, it’s a free ball, and for anyone who recovers it is first and foremost. It rules the field. Once it catches (Binson Valley), it’s dead on the spot. If it had been touched across the border by the kicking team, it would have been Binson’s ball. “
In the end, it’s not a bar. Byrd then blocked three plays by the Indians to block the points.
