We’re down to 26 teams left as Class 7A gets a break this week before the Super 7 starts next Wednesday. 24 other teams will compete for their shot to play at Bryant-Denny stadium next week and claim the coveted blue map from the AHSAA.
I’ll give a Super 7 preview next week as I get ready to head to Tuscaloosa to cover all the games live on ALPreps.
Here are the Class 1A-6A predictions. Because of the holidays and being extremely sick right now, I’m not going to go in depth on the games, but I will be giving analysis and highlights all night Friday night as we pick the best from the north and the south in each classifications.
I will say, there are five champions still alive for a repeat: Clay-Chalkville (6A), St. Paul’s (5A), Leeds (4A), Fyffe (2A), Maplesville (1A). The other two champs from last year, Hoover (7A) and Madison Academy (3A) both lost last week.
