“I thought we performed well when we weren’t shooting ourselves in the foot (with penalties). That’s something we’ve got to clean up for next week. This was a very emotional game, and we played a very good Cottage Hill team tonight. They refused to quit, and we hope to take some of their attitude into next week’s ball game.” -St. Luke’s coach Ronn Lee after his team’s 62-35 victory over Cottage Hill

To see them come out and do what they did against the No. 10 team in 7A just speaks volumes. We told our kids they we had to finish this year right and begin building for next year, and that’s what we did.”– Decatur Coach Jere Adcock after his Decatur team beat Sparkman 38-20.

“We got a wake-up call tonight, but thankfully we did not have to take a loss to get it. We played sluggish. We have to stay focused and play hard and better to continue our season. Our seniors really played hard and led the way. We will need that leadership heading into the playoffs from our seniors.” — Fulton dale Coach Richie Busby as his team completed an undefeated regular season with a 28-6 win over Montevallo.

“I’ve been here 27 years. I’ve never seen the fog come in like that. It made it tough on both offenses. And we scored a defensive touchdown early and that was the difference. That’s five shutouts in a row for our defense. I’m really proud of the effort on defense this year. We’ve got 17 seniors that have given great effort and provided leadership to the team this year.” – Guntersville coach Lance Reese after his team’s 7-0 victory over Albertville.

It was a really hard-fought game. We moved the ball some. They have a really good defense. We went in the game with two offensive linemen hurt. We got another one hurt in the game. That didn’t help. They deserve all the credit. They kept us out of the end zone.” – Albertville coach Dale Pruitt

“I think we played well. We hit the screen pass on the second play of the game and was able to take it to the house. We were able to win all our games at home and able to win the region championship, but now the playoffs start and it’s like we’re back to 0-0. Now, we’ll find out if we’re able to keep improving.” -Mortimer Jordan Coach Dusty Goode after his squad’s 30-8 win over Fayette County.
