Following their bye week, the Auburn High Tigers (5-1 overall, 2-1 in region play) hope to take down region foe Robert E. Lee (Montgomery) Friday night at Duck-Samford Stadium. Last year at the Crampton Bowl in Montgomery, Auburn beat Lee 40-32 with the help of two Garrett Morris touchdowns and also mounted 526 yards of total offense in the game.
The Generals had a tough season last season, finishing the year 2-8 (2-5 in region play) and missing the 2016 7A playoffs. This year has been a different story for the Generals though, they are currently 5-1 overall (3-0 in region play) with impressive wins over Carver, Jeff Davis, and Prattville. Lee does a challenging finish to their scedule, as they will play the number one team in the state Central-Phenix City and Enterprise before the 7A playoffs.
Auburn stayed put at number six in class 7A in this week’s Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football Poll, but hopes to make a case to be in the top five this Friday night. Airtime will be 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3 with the Auburn High broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey, and Noah Gardner. The game will also be streaming online at wingsfm.com and on the Wings 94.3 app.

In the second quarter, Fuller again found Trey Elson for a 12 yard touchdown to improve the lead to 24-0.

The Auburn High Tigers (4-1 overall, 2-1 in region) will get a quick break from region action this Friday night when they take on Mary-Montgomery high at Duck-Samford Stadium.

Mary-Montgomery was limited to just 174 offensive yards, including three lost fumbles.
Mary-Montgomery finished their 2016 season with a 5-5 record, which was not good enough to make the 7A Playoffs. Mary-Montgomery is not having the greatest of seasons so far to say the least. The Vikings are currently 0-5 with losses to UMS Wright, Theodore, Fairhope, Murphy, and Bryant.

Auburn High is getting set to take on their third straight region opponent when battling Enterprise Friday night at Duck-Samford Stadium in Auburn. The Tigers rose to number seven in Wednesday’s Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football poll after an impressive win in Prattville last Friday night and hopes to carry that momentum into Duck-Samford against the Wildcats. Even though the playing status of senior Auburn running back Garrett Morris is uncertain, sophmore Jay Walker has done an impressive job in his place, including a 146 yard night against Prattville and a 169 yard night against Central.
Enterprise is having a rough start to their 2017 season, despite going 11-2 overall (6-1 in region play) last season, which earned them a spot in the AHSAA 7A playoff spot. The Wildcats beat Baker in round one of the playoffs, but then was defeated by McGill-Toolen in the second round. Enterprise defeated Dothan in week one of this year, but then fell to Northview, Prattville, and Jefferson Davis.
Last year, the Tigers traveled to Enterprise and was defeated by the Wildcats by a final score of 28-14. Enterprise quarterback Koty Fulton-Tice had 145 passing yards and Enterprise wide reciever Cincere Flowers recorded two touchdowns in the game. The Wildcats ended the game with 234 yards of total offence. Auburn hopes for more success this season with their strong running game and their stout defense led by Mohamoud Diabate, Cally Chizik, and Griffin Speaks, who had two interceptions last Friday night.
Airtime will be 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3 with the broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey and Noah Gardner providing coverage. The game will also be streamed online at wingsfm.com and on the Wings 94.3 app.
The Auburn High Tigers have improved to 3-1 this season and 1-1 in region play on Friday night after an impressive win over Prattville. Auburn traveled to Prattville to defeat the Lions by a final score of 21-6. The Lions drew first blood early in the first quarter with a 25 yard touchdown pass to Ryan McDanial, but it was all Tigers after that. Auburn scored in the second quarter on a Jay Walker 8 yard touchdown run to make the score 7-6, followed by a Brooks Fuller 1 yard run to make the score 14-6.

The Auburn High Tigers (2-1) come off a loss to the number-one team in the state last Friday night against Central-Phenix City (recap) and travel to Prattville (2-1) this Friday for a region 7A match-up. Last season at Duck-Samford Stadium, Auburn defeated Prattville 31-14 in a game where running back Garrett Morris scored three touchdowns, two on the ground and one receiving. Morris’ great performance was part of the Tiger’s offensive showing that night, as Auburn finished the game with 317 rushing yards and 433 total offensive yards.
Prattville finished their 2016 season with a 1-8 overall record (1-5 in region) and missed a spot in the AHSAA 7A playoffs. Things are looking better for the Lions this season, however, as they have bounced back from an early loss to Wetumpka to win two in a row against Stanhope-Elmore and Enterprise.
Auburn High is ranked eighth in this week’s Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football Poll and hopes to prove worthy of a much higher ranking in Prattville on Friday night. Airtime will be 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3 with the broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey and Noah Gardner providing coverage. The game will also be streamed online at wingsfm.com and on the Wings 94.3 app.
The Auburn High football team kept it close with the number one team in the state of Alabama, but fell to the Central Red Devils 34-28 on Friday night. Central took an early 7-0 lead over the Tigers in the first, but Jay Walker evened the score with a 36 yard touchdown later in the first. Auburn senior Brooks Fuller then connected with JaMarcus Knight to give the Tigers a 14-7 lead. The first quarter ended with a 5 yard run by Central’s A’montae Spivey to once again tie the game at 14. With time expiring in the second quarter, Trey Elston caught a 5 yard touchdown from Fuller to give the Tigers a 21-14 lead at the half.
But the number one team in the state had a huge third quarter, especially A’montae Spivey. Spivey had a 43 yard touchdown run followed by a 79 yard touchdown run to put the Red Devils back in front 28-21. Spivey struck again in the fourth with a 22 yard rushing touchdown to make it 34-21. Auburn scored to make it 34-28 and recovered an onside kick to give the Tigers offence a chance, but they were unable to score and lost by a 34-28 final.
Auburn quarterback Brooks Fuller finished the game 16 for 34 passing and 186 yards while Auburn running back Jay Walker had 24 rushes for 169 yards and a touchdown. JaMarcus Knight was the Tigers leading receiver with 6 receptions for 89 yards. For Central, quarterback Peter Parrish went 11 for 17 passing and 96 yards and A’montae Spivey had 10 rushes for 197 yards and four touchdowns.
Next Friday night Auburn will travel to Prattville to take on the Lions who were victorious over Enterprise on Friday, 45-21. The Auburn High broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey, and Noah Gardner will have coverage from Prattville Friday night beginning at 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3.

The Auburn High Football team escaped with a 17-13 win over their arch-rival Opelika on Friday night with the help of a stellar performance by the Tiger defense. Auburn safety Cally Chizik had two interceptions in the game, linebacker Mahamond Diabate had two sacks, and the Tigers blocked a punt in the fourth quarter. The Tiger’s win on Friday night was their first win over the Bulldogs since 2013 and the first in the Coach Adam Winegarden era. With the big rivalry game in the books, Auburn moves to 2-0 and now focuses on a new challenge, Central- Phenix City.
Central is currently the number one ranked team in AHSAA class 7A according to the latest Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football Poll, and their play over the first two games proves that they are worthy of that title. The Red Devils beat Bob Jones 33-7 in week one, then soundly defeated Fairfield 62-0. In last Friday’s game against Fairfield, Central quarterback Peter Parrish threw for three touchdowns and defensive back Devonte Mathews had a pick-six.
The Tigers hope to have more success against Central than they did last season. In the 2016 regular season, Auburn traveled to Phenix City for their first road game of the year and lost 42-14. The Tigers then returned to Phenix City to take on the Red Devils in round two of the 7A playoffs, but again lost by a 48-9 final score.
Auburn High was ranked eighth in Wednesday’s Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football Poll, and hopes to take the momentum from the Opelika game into Duck-Samford Stadium on Friday night. Air time will be at 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3 with the Auburn High broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey, and Noah Gardner. The game will also be streamed online at wingsfm.com or on the Wings 94.3 app.
Nothing makes football better than old rivalries, and the Auburn High/Opelika High rivalry has a history that is one of a kind. Ever since Auburn High was moved to AHSAA Class 7A in 2014, the matchup no longer had major playoff implications but the rivalry between the schools remained.
Last season, the Bulldogs traveled to Duck Samford Stadium and in week two and shutout the Tigers by a 28-0 final score. In the game, Opelika senior running back Weldin Ford rushed for two touchdowns and senior quarterback threw a 26-yard touchdown. The Bulldogs defense was too much for the Tigers, as the Auburn offense was only able to record 100 yards of total offense.
That win pushed Opelika’s win streak over the Tigers to three years in a row and was just the beginning of a very impressive 2016 campaign. Opelika finished last season 13-2 overall (6-0 in region play) and made it to the 6A championship game where they were defeated by Ramsey. In the offseason, longtime Opelika Head Coach Brian Blackmon accepted a job as an offensive analyst at Auburn University and was replaced by former McGill-Toolen head coach Caleb Ross. The Bulldogs also lost quarterback JD Worth and running back Weldrin Ford to graduation, leaving big shoes to fill for junior quarterback Cade Blackmon and the rest of the Bulldogs.
The Tigers haven’t won the annual rivalry game since 2013, a season that Auburn High head coach Tim Carter led the Tigers to the 2013 6A Championship game. Adam Winegarden has been unable to defeat the Bulldogs in his first two full seasons as the Tigers head coach, but looks to reverse his fortunes Friday night at Bulldog stadium. Both teams head into the game with a 1-0 record as Auburn defeated Carver of Montgomery 27-0 (game recap) and Opelika had an impressive win over Smiths Station 51-0.
Air time will be at 6:30 CT Friday night on Wings 94.3 with the Auburn High broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey, and Noah Gardner. The game will also be streamed online at wingsfm.com or on the Wings 94.3 app.
