Alabama Games of the Week - Week One

Posted by Jacob Plunkett on 8/17/16 2:48 PM


There's nothing quite like Week One.

A seemingly neverending offseason finally comes to an end as the entire town buzzes with an excitement bordering on hysteria. Every team is undefeated, and every fan dreams of a playoff birth, a region title, a state championship...

It's time to prove your supporters right and your critics wrong. Time to turn summer preparation into fall results.

Undefeated starts with 1-0.


Muscle Shoals vs. Gardendale

Friday, August 19th - 7:00pm CT

Two teams coming off playoff losses look to start their journies toward even deeper runs in 2016. The Trojans of Muscle Shoals host the Rockets of Gardendale in this BIG-time Week One Alabama matchup.



Opelika vs. Carver Columbus (GA)

Friday, August 19th - 6:45pm CT

One of the best parts of pre-region play is interstate action. Georgia's Carver Columbus crosses state borders for a big-time battle with Opelika. If you can't make the trip, you can still catch THE WHOLE GAME on the NFHS Network!


Prattville vs. Wetumpka

Friday, August 19th - 6:45pm CT

Prattville may not be the national power they were a few years back, but this Week One game against Wetumpka will be a great measuring stick for the 2016 squad. Watch out for Prattville's athletic QB, Cam Taylor, who is transitioning from WR, and Wetumpka's junior tailback, Kavosiey Smoke.
