  5. Ever wonder why a guy you think should be a shoe in for Coach of the Year didn’t win the award? Chances are it is because he was not nominated. In fact, in some classifications we have hardly any nominations at all. Next year nominate a deserving coach. Forms are sent to each school at the beginning of the school year and you can always print a copy off of the website.

  7. Mississippi beat Alabama 17-16 in overtime at the 33rd edition of the Alabama-Mississippi All Star game Saturday. The game was played on the campus of Southern Mississippi University. It was the fifth overtime game in the series and the first loss in overtime for the Alabama team. Alabama still leads the series by a count of 22-11.
  8. The live broadcast of the new classifications for football on Tuesday was exciting, well done and a great idea. There were great interviews with Ron Ingram, Steve Savarese, Josh Bean and Ben Thomas of al.com. The whole process was explained and clarified for all. A tip of the cap to the AHSAA staff and the Central Board for bringing some excitement and openness to the entire reclassification process. Well done.
