cramped and him
tonight. Mike Peacock will be along
momentarily. Christina chambers is done on
the sideline. What can you say about a matchup to teams that made the
semifinals last year and got … they’re starting the season
tonight and what should be a great one.
It’s going to be the quarterback Neither one of them with a lot
of experience, but both of them good at what they do.
We start with central Phenix city and the young man that
started last year and ended up getting hurt in the first game.
Zion Webb, he’s first and, he could be the key to how far
central goes and 2016. Meanwhile the Buccaneers led [email protected]
[email protected] quarterback a young man who hasn’t started Garrett
Park one. He is a significant a little bit of playing time a little bit ago
ago. They really like the way he
takes control of the offense. Speaking of Niblett and Jamie
Deveaux as the central, these two guys have met before,
Christina will tell us more about this.
That’s right, although these teams have never played each
other before, there’s a lot of history between the two had
coaches. When Jamey DuBose faced in the
championship game. Those three games being decided
by five points or less, you can expect this game here tonight to be a tight one as both teams are treating it like a state playoff game.
Both of these teams lost in the state semifinals last year, this is a matchup we could see later
on in the playoffs this year. Thank you very much.
The captains are at midfield. I believe Cooper won the toss.
They deferred their choice. To let the official to you all
about that. CentralCentral get the ball
first. It could be one of the best
matchups of the entire year Brian rarely are two teams
expected to do as well as listings are playing on the
first part of the season Brent neither program has ever met.
You heard Christina talking about the first the coaches have
met a few times. A lot of that having to do with Rarely do you get a chance to
see the favorite in some cases here in the first weekend of the season.
That’s what the champions challenge is all about. A very convincing win last night Burton Hill is going to win this one tonight and what will call
up all night of high school football. A lot of Dean’s getting what
could be considered an early start to the football season.
Hoover well kick and Central
will get the ball first. Hoover in the orange, and I do
mean orange with grey numerals and those are black helmet, but
you can almost say they’ve got
fluorescent paint .
Where just about ready to get underway. That was right at the end zone.
They will bring it out. A good return up to the 43, 44,
it may be close to the party as Cameron Mason with a nice return
return. We will see the red Devil
offense to start this one. You heard us talk about Zion
Webb in the open, a the young man
that Jamey DuBose says has
matured a lot since the injury and the first game.
He wasn’t the only one I got injured.
Right before that semifinal game McGill, they also lost Justyn
Ross is some considered the top receiver in the state even
though he’s just a junior. Press play from scrimmage and
they keeper by web. Nothing doing.
Hoover all over it. It will be a loss of a couple
there. It will be second and 12. Central out that the eastern
part of the state, Phenix city right on the state line of
Georgia. Considered the sister station of We will get our first fight of
the night. I believe that will go against
the red Devils. Both of these teams had to be
skyhigh knowing and anticipating we had central last year and
that semifinal loss. It was again they were very
disappointed about. Jamey DuBose said this team has
tried to resurrect itself from that loss.
A win tonight would certainly help.
Another keeper and another short cornerback and Webb had nowhere
to go. It will be third and long for
the red Devils. Hoover’s defense led by Campbell
Campbell, Kami Carmann berm a lot of seniors on
that starting defense for the Buccaneers. KJ bought the linebacker. They throw a deep and that’s
complete. At first down on a great
completion. The play good for 17 yards and a big-time conversion for the
central offense. That should help their
confidence here early. And nice pitch by Zion Webb and
he makes the strike. This time straight ahead, that’s Jackson Carson.
The rushing Carson. The rushing Moser with over
1,000 yards, he had to go over just
1,000 almost actually 1100 yards Second and seven at the Hoover
47. That pass out of the reach Devin Pittman. Zion Webb would like to have
that one back. It will be third down.
They need the party. after the near side, empty back.
Empty set. Fake handoff.
Again, Webb keeps it and does
nothing. Tristan Taylor there to make the stop and a fourth down now for
the red Devils. You planted here, then them deep
deep, or do you go for it? They need 8 yards.
Just underway here at Cramton bowl.
It looks like they are going to go for it. Or are they just going to take a quick timeout before the clock
runs out may be trying to draw the defense.
Timeout central city. Central uses its first timeout
of the half. Hoover last year losing in the
semifinals like central to Spain Spain. They lost them twice in 2015.
And when it went on to the final Hoover led much of the game
before a judge an early fourth quarter. The Jaguars held on and moved on
into the championship where they Miguel to Lynn, very very good
game again central down in
Phenix city last year. Of course, we had that game .
That pretty much set up their championship. Jamey DuBose send out the
punting unit. Bad snap.
They get the kick away it takes a central role. The pond will be downed around
the 17-yard line. Zach Johnson with a punch and
Hoover will have their first possession when we come back to
Montgomery. To nights presentation of AHSAA
Kempin challenge is brought to you Blue Cross Blue Shield of
Alabama. We cover what matters.
First and ten. First play of the night for the
Buccaneers and that is going to be an incomplete pass as we get
our first look at Garrett
Farquhar and you get to hear back from Talladega.
>>I was telling you the one of the guys at the gate to me I
qualified outside of the third row for Sunday’s race.
He I heard your tire squealing. Number 16, he’s got to one back
set with CJ sterner than one of the top rushers a year ago for
the Buccaneers. Second and then he will throw it over the middle.
That is complete and big yardage It will be a first down for
Hoover after a 20-yard gain. That was just a nice little
basically not quite as planned, but just a bend into the scene
right there and hit him perfectly right in the middle of the defense and a big gain for
Hoover. First and ten at the 45.
Timeout taken by Josh Niblett 1015.
The Bucs , that is their first
time out here in the first half. You know, you can anticipate all you want a game of this
magnitude when you have two teams that you think your are
going to be a big part of who wins the 70 championship even if one of these two teams don’t.
You know good and well, they are They are going to be of their
contingent and you’re going to hear their name all the way for
several weeks , especially deep
into the playoffs. You usually come, both of these
teams they both went to the semifinals and lost.
Beer before I believe central last in lost in the
quarterfinals. Central is just trying to get
over that hump. They only have one state
championship, but they’re definitely a powerhouse program .
Could you ladies and gentlemen, the brain has arrived. I did not bring that with me.
I did pass through a little shower.
He am going out to check on that before you got your.
I pester one little shower and that was outside between an
Montgomery. Pursed and ten.
Running hard across midfield. Last the football and I think
Central got it. They do.
If I’m not mistaken I believe that you jump on it.
Could you look like the ball came out predict early.
People started scrambling well before he went down with the
bile. It took the blood to ball a
little. And white jersey fell on it.
Do we give the assistive mother nature.
First play in the rain and we get a turnover.
See who gets a handle on it. There it is.
I believe that’s Markail Benton. The Alabama commit. The red Devils get it back.
Their second possession. They moved it one first down on
their initial position. Good field position to start
here on the 45. Webb, keeper.
This time he’s got a call and he’s got a first down.
Across the 48, down close to the Rot down by KJ vault.
He hasn’t been able to get loose Last year when we had central,
we didn’t get to see Webb play,
we didn’t get to see this kind of play for the red Devils and I tell you, moving into that
Chattahoochee the Chattahoochee Valley, living
across the from Phenix city I
been hearing about this kid since he’s in middle school.
He set a name for a long time over there.
He decided there to take it himself.
We do have a flag down. They moved it up about 8 yards.
It like a Cayman behind the play
play. This is one of the things that
we know this, not only in the semifinal game, we also had them down and enterprise, the
mistakes, simple mistakes that really hurt them.
Both games we had, the mistakes and penalties like this,
momentum going penalty absolutely killed them when they were in both of those games.
Both of those ended up being losses. On the way back to the 48 so to
it will be first in 204 central .
No score, first quarter. 8:19 remaining on what’s going
to be an exciting start to this 2,016th season.
Again, they keeper. That was Christian Taylor who
came out to lay the leather. They gained about 3 yards.
Welcome back to high school football, Zion Webb. It will be second and about 17
at the 46. Still a light rain falling here
at Cramton bowl. Quarterback keeper again.
He is caught from behind. I think that was vault again who got him.
I think so. I wouldn’t be surprised if
Hoover is kind of shadowing him a little bit.
They figured he would do this. Check out a lot.
I think that was actually Christon Taylor in that time.
In there on a stunt package and basically was untouched. They put Zion Webb down to it
brings up third and long. They will try to screen, it goes to the tailback and out of
bounds inside the 26.
That may be enough. I think he got a first down.
What a nice call indexing Carson down.
That’s twice now they’ve done that in this game.
Take somebody got into his feet and almost tripped him up.
As he gets the ball, he’s going to get a block right there.
He breaks outside. He finally got enough of him to
get them down. A great first him play for
Central. This time it’s Justyn Ross .
The first time we’ve called his name tonight.
He’s got the first down in the 15 into the 13.
I have to say that that won’t be Could you are probably right. Jamey DuBose, he could not see
or use enough good at adjectives to
describe Justyn Ross. There goes Webb again and he
takes another pop after about a four or 5-yard gain.
Hoover is hitting him hard. It doesn’t matter who he’s up
against. But not before he picks up good
yardage on first down. At the athleticism on both sides
, quite honestly I don’t know that you will see that in
every other game in this
division this year. That is Carson. That one, the guy can jump, but
he can’t quite quite jump that high. Seventy .
He did not play and that semifinal game.
When their bus to McGill, they were at and he got hurt the week before, you know, Jamey DuBose
made tort of a humorous statement, but he was probably
right on the money. He said they got that happiest
in the world right now is Zion Webb because he has Justyn Ross
to throw to. AAnd nice move. Touchdown central.
Jackson Carson .
From 7 yards out. Oh, wow. I daresay O.J. Simpson, but
that’s what he looked like. This was unbelievable
athleticism radio. Central get into the end zone.
Carson is going to take it on that little counteraction play
and look at this does put on the It’s kind of like Barry Sanders.
Just let it go by and throw it into the end zone.
Could you get to a lot of them in there.
Walter Payton. You get the idea. Central on the board first.
The extra point try is up.
It’s low, but I think he got it through. It is 7-Max zero with six
minutes in the first period. What a run by Carson. As he takes it in and gives the
red Devils the early lead. Back with more in Montgomery.
The 11th Champion champion challenge. Central Phenix city getting the
touchdown leading super 7-Max a row.
I’m joined now by Josh Phillipp, Transportation.
You have a lot of safety tips for all that fancy took the time to come out to today’s game.
About 80 percent of the traffic on the roadways is about 10
10 percent of the road. We have our drive safe Alabama
campaign which is a puffin to
help get them and others on the roadways safe. Before we go, what are your
parting thoughts about Highway safety.
In no these fans are going to leave to make game and had to
him. Buckle up, every trip, every
time. 60 percent of the people gelding crashes in Alabama are wearing
seatbelts. Muscle is gradualist are
survivable. Buckle up and drive safe tonight
tonight, Alabama. Is that one thing you see in
most of your Rex here in the state?
Unfortunately, it’s hard to get people to wear their seat belt
every time.
If we could do that, we would see the survivability of these
crashes go up significantly. A know a lot of people if they
get on social media work and they go to check out the
situation? We have a Nava drive safe,
Alabama that is drive safe,
You are emphasizing drive safe, buckle up and I know a lot of
college students are back in school now, so that seems to be
a big topic there. We see any kind of distracted
driving or anything that can hurt you on the roadway.
You see texting and driving, drinking and driving, and even
seat belt in those situations can help you survive those
precious Brett. Mang, back to you better take
Christina, first at ten after their return central on a seven
play, 55-yard drive and a huge third-down conversion.
That was a big play on the drive drive.
That was that there denting a blade.
It was break up the drive alive. It could be a big test.
Nobody said your percentile. A nice play, out of bounds at
about the 48. Cedric Jackson has the big play.
The pickup of 16. Everybody does kind of got drawn to the other side of the field
for central and a good block downfield was able to spring
this play for a big game, 16 16 yards and a first on pet.
You would agree with me the speed of both of these teams,
you will see a lot of that, a lot of play action.
Make people stop for just a half Sometimes that’s all you need.
Farquhar with a deep drop and run around complete.
Jackson this time at the 42 and right at the stake it looked
like he might be a yard short look like a quarterback he
hasn’t had very many snaps is a starter, the Nazi?
Pinpoint throw, right on the sideline right where it needed
to be. Josh Niblett said that, I love
what he does, I think, he said, was in the fourth grade.
He said this kid had been in his grade.
The role and throws deep. He has a man, but it’s out of
reach. Turner, the intended receiver.
Third in the yard. One thing the coach told us
about Farquhar is that he studies the game of football.
He knows what to do. He lives that, brings that, he’s got great confidence .
He’s got a little swagger in the do with the football.
And knows where to look for those receivers. If the yard here, he will get
the handouts and the first down and hold it on to make the
tackle that was Benton.
We didn’t talk much about him in considered by many to be the
best linebacker in the state one He is on a lot of lists and it
was a big event over in Phenix city when he decided to announce his signing or an ounce is
commitment back in the spring and a lot of media was there.
Lots of hype over it. People didn’t know if he was
going to go to Auburn or Alabama Alabama.
Or follow in the footsteps of Woodrow wall.
Put the Crimson on. He threw that one into double
coverage. That was run the length they
came up, almost got the interception there.
Cup both hands on the football. Then knocked it away.
Geben Alexander also over there. I love watching Delance play
last night last year. I wouldn’t be surprised though
if you lead them in tackles and that loss.
He was allover the field. I do remember that.
Farquhar, Texas. Nowhere to go and that’s the
speed am talking about as Jarious Upshaw comes up with a
big play I don’t think technically that’s a fact
because there was no bus on the play, but it makes it third and
11. Upshall wasn’t even in the frame when you look at this and is
seen as part Barr, there he field very quickly for no gain.
I daresay that is what Jamey
DuBose want Farquhar to do. Check it and go because he’s got the speed to catch them and she
just saw it there. They need just inside the 34 the first down the trail 7-502
Hoover. Deep, and too deep.
That was intended for cam for
Brett. Because of the blitz, he had to
get rid of the ball quick and he receiver didn’t know it was in
the air. He was looking for the football, looking back for the football
and it was floating over his head deep.
That was one of the things we noticed last year.
I know we keep referring to last if the improvements have been
made with this red double team. It seems like last year that
would’ve been a roughing the passer call or a pass
interference, but nothing like that.
Actually it’s now third and 11. They had the box wrong.
There was a flag. Okay.
I spoke too soon. I never saw the flag fall. We saw that about last year too.
Jamie Jamey DuBose is man and I did
not see that penalty. Unfortunately for central. It was called a pass
interference. I don’t know what receiver it
was on. Oh my goodness.
There is Upshaw again. I think they might have egged a
little gunpowder before he came out here.
And I allowed to say bat out of hell?
That was incredible. You talk about shooting the gap.
He shot they gap right there. I think he might have shot too.
A loss of four. Back to the 30.
Three receivers adhered to the left for Hoover.
One back in the backfield. We see a wide receiver screen. Farquhar looking this way.
Over the middle that is an incomplete pass.
It was almost a nice catch.
It is incomplete. A tad behind him right there.
Difficult to hang onto especially through contact. It will be third down and third
and long again for Hoover. Central has proven pretty good.
If they can avoid a penalty. A stickler a little bit here.
I typed or receiver in receiver this time and that past might have been
knocked down. Not sure if he got a hand on
that. I think Farquhar dragged a tried to hand onto the ball because he saw his receiver falling down. It was going to be a quick off
the block when I think he may have tried to hold onto the
football and just couldn’t do it it.
We will see a long field goal attempt rate of 47 yarder. This kick by Pickering. There is no wind.
It’s long enough, but it’s left Brett.
And never got any left. In notice it had a funny spin on it.
It never got any end over end motion.
It never got up off the ground very well.
It’s sort of sales like a curveball, to the left.
Can you watch it again. Good placement.
He just sort of around it. He didn’t hit it solid and had
that funny spin. AndI like them on ironing golf
you try to hit it to heart and it’s
a little bit of the book.
Make good thing is all that the ball just goes back to the 20 in high school. Here we go with central back on
offense leading it 7-Mexico. Webb, who has been the majority
of the often so far. No backside, throws that one
Lowe and its incomplete intended He would love to have that back, it hit his receiver in the needs
needs. That again, I’m sure he’s been
working on that all summer. It’s a little during different
when you have orange jerseys chasing you.
Definitely. Especially with orange jerseys
with the same type of speed you face in practice.
Definitely. Two on the left. Blogging.
I think that might have been Ross out there with the block.
A pickup of close to 8 yards forge.
@think your right, I think that was Jackson Carson they got
blocks on the outside. And sprang him for about 7 yards
7 yards, seven and half yards? Yes, they got it to about the 27
27. So third and three.
They’ve got to get to the 30. Twenty-five, the clock is
stopped as the play went out of bounds. Carson and the backfield.
He will get the handoff. He’s got the first down across
the 30 2 the 31.
He was tripped up I believe that Kholbe could Coleman with the
six that senior but not before another
first down for central. looking left.
There he goes again, sliding at the 40.
That will be a pickup of 8 yards 8 yards.
You get the idea here that Hoover pretty good knowledge of
what they Schenn man does, even though he displays at half last
year. I’m sure they’ve seen him and
seven out of ten attempts. Can you ensure they pulled some
phone from film from his sophomore
year. Definitely. They will move the chains again
I do believe. Central has had their share of But they seem to have them all
ironed out now moving the football. the handoff goes to him. Is that a face mask?
Facemask. That will be effective the.
The fan reaction over there immediately. As we like to say sometimes the
facemask in half. That is going to give central
another first down. it is Hoover right now making
the mistakes. Central is taking advantage of
them. During the play, personal foul
home mass facemask.
15 yards resulting in a first down.
So the red Devils continue this
drive and continue to move it. That was a pretty serious
facemask .
That pass knocked down incomplete. I believe that was Chase Brown
with the play there. Anytime you throwback to the
website of the field the ball stayed in the air a little bit
longer than you wanted to. That time, the defender and the
ball got there at the same time and the defender one.
First Josh Niblett had a lot of
nice things to say about Chase Brown the junior cornerback.
Had lots of nice things to say about lots of his players. Straight up the gut.
And minimal gain. Carson again and a player loses
his helmet so he will have to leave for a play. Trent Kelley who lost his
headgear. He is just a mere 6-foot four,
305 pounds. he is something tells me he
will. Central needs a of 35. That is going to be down because Menlo went to pick it up he had
his knee on the ground. The snap was well to his
left-side. Jamey DuBose wasn’t real pleased with that.
They were moving the football and basically that Series just
fell apart. So the punting unit is on. back to return the kick from
Kimber. That is a line drive kick.
It takes a big bounce. What a great role for central at the floor. It can get a little slippery and I think the ball that time took
off. Yes.
I think probably a good idea not We saw one last night and that
Demopolis Tuscaloosa game where a return man came up and tried
to catch a ball that was bouncing and literally kicked it
it. The ball took a weird bounce.
You never know where the ball me It’s better to just let it go.
First and ten at the four. Sturdivant. Let me back it up.
He said they got the football. They will say no gain officially
officially. It will be second and ten.
That may although they will have
to run one more play. We’ve got about 20 seconds left
in the first quarter. Fark war for the shotgun and his end zone needs to get rid of it.
It does and a nice catch around the 13-yard line.
That should be enough or at least close enough to the first
down as they catch me by Cortez Hall.
They will Marken 1 yard short and they will have a third and
one will Hoover when we come back.
The first quarter is over. Central Phenix city with a big
touchdown run from Jackson Carson to get the red Devils a 7
7-bank zero lead in this champions
champion talent at Cramton bowl. That is from a fountain
downtown. The beautiful state capital here in Montgomery.
That is where we are tonight for A great game so far central and
Hoover. It looks like they will pick up
a third and one. Or did they? It looks like they got enough.
They started to pick it up and that will give Hoover what will
be there fifth first down of the
night. Could you very similar numbers
in the first quarter for the two Central 13 at 21 plays on the
Hoover side. Hoover seven of 14.
0 yards or less. Central, that big plus seven in
the point of all turnovers. They made the most of that
turnover .
And Markail Benton with a big play.
He takes it down. No gain. Must like he ate him.
That’s a linebacker. That’s a linebacker making that
play. You think a safety or a corner
might make a play like this, but that’s a linebacker.
He just came up and got his face A textbook tackle right there
for Markail Benton. Heath had several pretty good
linebackers come over central Phenix in the over the years.
They’ve had a few. They’ve had pretty good players.
TheIndeed. We’ve got a the time out I
believe he sees in the formation.
I was same before that in the first quarter, the two
quarterbacks have very similar numbers.
Zion Webb four of eight, 54 54 yards. You know, stats are fairly even, it you would expect them to run
at the workplace of they have a few more yards.
103 total yards-714 Hoover. Let’s check out the Hoover
quarterback. In the first period, again, this is his first start and he looks
pretty good early. And nice pass across the middle.
That was his first throw of the year.
He completed a couple more. Well executed plays.
This was probably my favorite pro he made in that first
quarter, it was right spot on on It gets him out of trouble they
are. This is the part of the current
fact that they’re on. Far far planes.
Me last year. He started the game three of
five from 53, since then he’s gone one of four for just four
more yards. Santos defense has adjusted a
little bit. They are trying to keep them
bottled up as much as possible on the strife. Second and ten.
Sturdivant goes outside. He runs over a Manning picks up
a couple of yards. Upshall took the brunt of that
hits. Again of about four and it will
be at third down for Hoover. This tribe starting very deep in their own territory after a
beautiful Pond by Zach Johnson for Central. This is a big play for both
teams. It would be a huge play if
Central could get a stop you’re on the defensive side, but it
would also be very big for the Hoover offense if they could get a first down.
All three right out to the left. Somebody move. Or is it delay of game?
It is delay of game. You hate that if your Hoover. Delay of game on the offense 5
5 yards, stuffers down. Key that will probably drive right there.
How many veins are out of his neck?
I count two. When an Eastside.
Third and 12th. Straight back drop looking down .
Oh, what a play. What a play. Knocked away by DJ Bryce. The intended receiver, I believe that is and that is Jackson.
That is a well thrown football. The receiver actually had a.
He just missed it. He just got a finger on it.
Maybe he didn’t touch it. He just distracted the receiver
enough to cause him to miss it. I think the receiver thought he
was going to hit the football and didn’t.
I don’t want to take away any credit from that it should have
been caught. He did make the play, but he
didn’t get a handle on it. The return, and out of bounds A good field position.
32-yard line where Central will start this drive.
Graham, I’m going to reiterate something you said earlier about you look for when you see and
team a couple of times you look for improvement.
A prime example right there on that punt return.
One of the up backs for Central had a Hoover player in his
sights, but had he may contact it would’ve been a block in the
back. Last year and not so sure we
wouldn’t have seen a the back
there because that something they’ve improve themselves on.
Jamey DuBose said they made a poignant effort in making better decisions.
That was a good decision there. Perse, but down, quarterback
keeper again. Losing three. Hoover had him surrounded.
Know what he knows it used to be coming after him.
He looked up and he couldn’t see Second and 13 at the 35.
That is a big play for Hoover here on first down deep in its
own territory. On the defensive side. the lone setback. And that keeper again.
A good job by the defensive end there. @good thing they checked the
numbers. I believe it was about 55.
I’m having trouble too. It is hard to see those numbers.
They are great liking football jerseys.
They are great-looking football jerseys, but from this distance
those great numbers are hard to see and we’re quite a ways away
from the field. Not quite as Bay as in the
Tennessee jerseys and the bat throwing on third down.
He’s got a man out of his reach. That was Devontae miles I
believe. That was Devontae miles.
Hexagram am going to say that Paul should have been caught.
That has him right where it needed to a thing.
Let’s watch the replay here. Yes, that’s ball should’ve been
caught.>>Got a hand on that.
What’s the old saying, if you get a hand on the ship kept it.
I think it was thrown where it needed to be.
Probably he will make the catch four or five out of six times 50
50, yeah, I would say that one definitely had some zip on them. There’s only six seconds on the
play clock. They will get off the snap.
Over the middle and that one is out of reach.
I don’t think that Brooks was at Hoover within a stance as they
gave up the ball deep in their own territory.
They still trails 7-50 n-gram tumble. Welcome back to Cramton bowl.
First and ten for the Hoover box In fact, they made them go
backwards on that series. The series for the red Devil
Devils starting on the 30. There it goes again.
My goodness. You talk about corners coming up to make a stop.
You saw it there is number 12 came up.
That is Upshaw. He is quick.
He is quick as a hiccup I believe.
I’ve heard that term growing up in a country all my life and now I think I know what it means.
They actually list him as a linebacker.
He closes on the football. I believe he’s an outside
linebacker and closes on the football as well as anybody.
He’s in the middle there. I kind of think they might be
moving him around slapping him and Benton.
Over the middle maybe a little bit out of reach, but just in
case, and was there to knock it away.
It will be third down. That passed not quite on the
money for a Varvara Briski and think Jamey DuBose have come up
with some creative ways to confuse Garrett Farquhar.
He’s not making the Reid said he He is rest a couple of throws
he’s thrown a couple of balls behind receivers that he didn’t
do in the first order. I think some different looks out of the red Devils are at play
here. For Jamey DuBose has seen a
couple of times, but usually in Farquhar, a deep throw, he got
that, almost a diving catch, but The pass intended for Hall. It will be fourth-down.
Oh my goodness that would have been a beautiful play.
The ball kind of let it back over things in Tate shoulder.
He had to make and of a twist to catch.
He couldn’t quite do it. As you see there, it just
flooded back to the outside of his body he was turned inside it was a difficult earned for him
to make. Hoover will punt again. This one kicked away from the
return man which is as you would probably the fastest guy
on the field and Ross, this time the first down there for
Central. Do you think it helps that the
fact that Jamey DuBose has faced under the
most extreme conditions and beaten them?
Absolutely. He brings a demeanor in this
game having been there done that players.
Unlike a guy who hasn’t been in that situation, and good defense
by Hoover if they’re in the backfield.
It was Christon Taylor to make the stop of Mr. Jackson Carson. That will be a loss of three.
Right now Central has kind of stalled here a little bit on
their offense. Weir started to seeing this up
the essentials defense. We’re also seeing it out a few
first defense. Hoover is doing things to
confuse the defense of center right now.
I think this is a scam going on among the defensive tornadoes. That is why you come up and make a play. That is textbook. He fought his way across the
face of a blocker. Heat fight off the blocker. He got a hold of the sleeve or
something and with my go. He actually tackled two guys at
once. 5-yard loss on that play burden intercepted.
AThe force pass by web. After he avoided as Zach. I don’t know that he could have
gotten the first down marker. We type a timeout before the
plant. We are going to have fun with
that for the rest of the season. Fourth down and out bunting
Central. One man deep for the Bucs they
go after it, but a good fund. It will be first down Hoover. When you say the name Hoover in
this state. The first thing you think about
is domination but those numbers
don’t exactly break that out. It tells the tale that we were
talking about a few minutes ago about what a job the defenses
are doing in the second quarter. Minus 5 yards for Central only
to you on the positive side. Barb wire mom at the. I’m not sure if Ford looked at
where his feet were beard looked
like he might’ve taken his eye off the ball for just a split
second he lost some eye contact
with the ball and went through his hands.
I’m not sure he could’ve have the ball was close to a
catchable ball bearing .
They must feel like they is something they can exploit to
start event up and have at turned
round to run with it, he lost it it. Let me tell you this.
How many big-time hits of these guys taken already in the first
half? You’re looking out of the corner very to see if any white jerseys are out.
He had a walls that in front of him.
If you catch is that the ball, Hoover’s probably got a nice
because the screen was there. I hate to go back to this,
because we’re talking about last He said we couldn’t make plays
when we needed them the most last year.
They will get five free ones. I believe that’s number 13. The previous Floyd.
He went up with this and bumped
his mouth preselect onto the Hoover side of the ball.
He went to retrieve it and it’s
an offside penalty. Here’s a way to look like that.
He would’ve been penalized either way because shift of your mouthpiece in your mouth on the
snap. Now just third and five Hoover
at midfield. Farquhar, he looks left this
time, but is probably going to be interference and there’s the
flag. It looked like he had that off
and around the waist. That would David Dykes.
It was going up to the ball and he looked like he had Karen
Delance wearing him .
Easy the offense on the outside wrapped around his hip.
Let me back up that’s actually MJ woods with the interference. Our first down for Hoover after
the penalty. Take an eligible downfield.
How about that. Evidently at tight end or
somebody who was covered up over downfield to throw the ball to in an
eligible receiver to make it a penalty.
If the ball does across the line knocked on the mend or in a back goes out for a pass, it is a
penalty. Third and five again.
Farquhar it takes a shot. He completes the pass.
Down to the bat is Randall with the big play.
That was a huge play because Clark took a big 32 yards on
that play. Somebody lost coverage over here
here. I don’t know whether the safety
was supposed to roll and pick up Somebody lost the receiver there and he was wide open.
That was Cortez. That looking a lot like and nine tonight.
A grapefruit by Garrett Farquhar Farquhar. Deepest penetration by Hoover
all night. That pass incomplete bet that.
There’s another flag. This is going to be a hold.
It could be. That was I’m not real sure, that may have been a little rubber
out over there where one receiver goes outside and sort
of ties to rub the defense of guy.
It was a holding call against the defense.
Sometimes when the defender sees Not a lot of difference between
Holt and pass interference it’s kind of the same thing.
This one half the distance. Now, it will not be enough for
the first down but in a way that They only need a yard and they
get an extra down. It’s first and one.
How may times have you heard that.
Just inside the ten. Trying to tie the score with 5:
5:09 left in the first half. That is Randall in the backfield I can assure you of that. Incomplete.
Good defense .
Good defense. He did exactly what he needed to do.
To state in front of the receiver, MP did his vision.
Didn’t interfere. A good job of defending on that
play. Alexander of the intended
receiver. How many times have we seen him
throw that fake, through the post they are throwing it deep
basically. They are definitely challenging
those corners for central Phenix
city. Is still a couple of downs to
play. First down, that will be at the
7-yard line for Randall. Randall picks up the first down.
Fenton over there for the stop. but in some some beef on the
line of scrimmage. Trying to block up the middle
there and talk about defense of friends both sides of the bind
it looks like a meat locker. It does. For:40 to play. Farquhar with the Lindback. Friends of Paul on the left-side
left-side. Grinding.
Grinding. I think he’s a bit short.
He did pretty much all of that on his own.
Sometimes you will get some help they get a push. He is getting a little bit of
help of his that he is in the center of that.
He moves that pile himself just inside the one-yard line. The left guard with the help
they are buried second and goal at the one.
Hit in the backfield. What a play.
They will use a lard. That is like, came from the
outside. Graham got the leg , but you
know what, who hit him first because he got hit in the
backfield .
That was the Lincecum he was there as well.
I thought maybe Benton hunted them.
It was Delince to break it up. Third and goal and we will get a timeout with 336 to play.
It looks like Central will take this timeout. The Buccaneers of fever trying
to push in the first quarter of 2016.
Can you believe this? We have 11,000 people here
tonight and these folks ain’t
from Montgomery. There’s lot of people watching
these game on their phones and their tablets while they’re
watching another game in person. If you didn’t know you could do
that, pass to the Could you if you want to watch
it again it will be archived a little later on tonight. It’s one will have to watch and
see which one by the fourth quarter especially in a close
game , see which one is in the
best shape. I think it’s going to come down
to that. Of course, a lot of big games
tonight around the state. That is the state Tim bent and
seven A and six A battling one another.
I think here in the River region region, .
That’s idea that when as long as back to about 1905 or so.
Not really about 1945. 1950. Third and goal at the two.
Sort of lone setback. They bunch of the lineman. A handoff.
Far far well throw it into the end zone wide open touchdown. Extremely well-designed play
there. It looked like Farquhar was
going to try to keep the ball and beat the defense said that
pile and because everybody on that side was covered but here
comes the eighth, but affect the middle of the end zone wide
open. It just pops up and throws.
There is this guy wide open. So that extra point attempt is
up. It is perfect. We have a Tide football game. Would you expect anything less?
7-backs7-7 with 3:49 to play in the
first half. A very impressive drive by
Hoover. A guy that hadn’t touched the
ball all night scores the first touchdown for the Buccaneers
Brett. As listing of the tight end at
that time he was set up as an HVAC.
He’s a healthy young man. Can you very much so.
They have him listed as if I look at my lineup, 6 feet, and
235. That is a load.
Differently. Had they they had a little help. There is the big play.
The pivotal play of the drive right there.
Garrett Farquhar stood in there and got that pass off as he was
getting nailed and then down at the one-yard line. It was just a perfectly executed play and it was Timbo with a
touchdown. Get a little dance move with
that. so the kickoff is coming for
Hoover. to the goal line and that is
through the end zone. That will be a touchback.
First and ten at the 20. You know, I was thinking back to some of the great games that
have been played here. This place has been around since the 30s.
This was the home of the linear pole at which won state
championships over the years. And then you get into the high
school just Davis teams. Carver recently an amount which
was impressive last night. A lot of great teams.
Lots of great players have called this home.
First down pass incomplete. Ross was there.
It was way out of the reach. We have a flag laying on the 20. Is there going to be a holding
penalty? Ineligible field. Hoover has a choice to take the
penalty or take the down. I want to say Central has a
little stagnant offense, but they really have not done a
whole lot. Since a score that is done.
They have not. You know, who first defense has
had a lot to do with it. Exactly.
The penalty is declined. Quite frankly, centrals defense
had had a lot to do with you for couple of penalties there on
that drive, they might not have gotten into the end zone that
time. Second and ten. Well, stepping up, nowhere to go
go. Down he goes.
Thirty-five and 55. Coleman gets help from Hill for
the sack. Make that Brown for the Zach. Marquise Brown 6-foot, 200 50
20050 pounds offensive and senior.
Look at the corporate comparison 123 yards.
The second quarter a place, negative seven.
Both of the coaching staff have been able to make the
adjustments. Here we go again.
A along pass downfield and incomplete. I believe coming back so the
football, I believe it was miles
miles. It will be third down and long. The pass is a little bit under
throne. Let me back up.
It will be fourth-down. Cortez Hall will playback.
The courting step over there wanted a flag on that play, but the contact was incidental not
initiated by the defensive back. A pretty decent night. No rush, and that one, it was He’s got the room. He will need one more block, he
doesn’t get it, but it will be great field position for the
Buccaneers inside of the 20. That was great.
It was kind of a wall within a wall.
It was. 35 yards on the return Brett.
And excellent feel the patient by him.
You’re going to watch. He gets one hole there.
Now he’s going to look of field and he sees his blockers and
picks them up. He just does a great job of
getting them great field position inside the 20-yard line
line. Nice return.
Plenty of time here for Hoover to do something else on offense. It was Carson that made the
tackle. First and ten at the 17.
Hoover right back down and in
red Devil territory. Red zone red Devil territory.
Rivers. On the outside.
That will help for about a 5-
5-yard gain. Good help by the defense.
His Jackson comes up with about 4 yards.
Seaport adhere with the blocking A good block right there.
I believe that is Kam Ford camp for
that made the block. But you have to give credit also to upshot again.
Chasing down the runner. Second and about seven. Straight ahead for about two. Randall with a carry.
He will get to the ten. Actually, he will make about 4
4 yards on the play. So third and three coming up for Hoover.
The block not quite effective. A big third-down play for the
central defense. They need to stop they can force
of field goal attempt here. It could be big for them. The backfield, instead based on
the screen pass. I thought he might have stepped
up at the ten but apparently not not.
He’s at the three and he’s got a What great balance by practicing
practicing. Somehow, Graham, he was able to
stay inbounds there. I thought like you yet stepped
out. It looked like he tiptoed. It doesn’t go down.
He’s going to see it on 1 foot and sees it inbounds.
Unbelievable. That was just determined running by that Junior. 6 feet , 208.
I set this time for Hoover with a man in motion.
I don’t think we’ve seen this all night.
Five are rolling into end zone. That’s Upshall again.
He is all over the place. We call his name is much is
anybody. Watching get out here and bat
this thing away. He tries to back it back to one
of his buddies there. They just didn’t close on a
quick enough. That would have been too much.
If he doesn’t make that play. It’s a touchdown, no doubt.
The tight end was open again. Second and goal.
The clock is stopped with 58 seconds left. Farquhar in the backfield.
Three men on the left. Farquhar takes it himself. Touchdown Hoover. A 3-yard run and the Bucs have
their first lead of the night. Graham, that was an excellent
fake on that play that set the play out.
I think a lot of the white shirt right there.
Including the defensive end, big on that Feken that open that
side up, that edge up for Farquhar.
He hadn’t kept it all night. ToSo of course, they have the
handoff. The extra point is perfect and
with 53 seconds to go in the first half, the Bucs of Hoover
are on top by seven. Let’s not forget the Hoover
defense is a big part of why they’ve taken the lead here late in the first half.
The defense has done a great job job.
They have given the options field position .
You know, we also had to account Excellent punt return that got
them down into the red zone. Cortez Hall with a nice return.
Of course, that time it was just offensive sets. What will Central do with the
final 53 seconds? 15 plays in the last two drives .
52 yards doesn’t sound like much much, but that’s because they’ve had good field position. I tell you, Graham, one thing
you can’t forget here either. Central has the ability to take
it to the house on a kickoff.
That’s an understatement. They have some guys back there
who can tote them mailed the mail very
quickly. They are not going to get a
chance to return it. That was in the end zone for a
touchback. Eric Pickering.
One thing that really Central hasn’t done a whole lot of
tonight and bat is in the ball off to somebody to run the
football. It’s mostly been the quarterback Webb who has taken the snap and
taken off. This time he does have a back
with him, it is Carson. Carson has had a pretty good
night. They will throw the screen pass
outside. Hoover with a nice evening.
And that is minimal gain. I think that’s number 19, it
couldn’t be Jimmy Turner. Or is that fault?
That’s number 18. I’m calling an new role.
Apparently there was a flag on that play. They shoulder pads, in other
chest protection and that shoulder pads, sometimes a the
Jersey gets bunched up inside.
I officially called that a illegal as of right this moment.
Can you get down to the field and let them know right now?
That’s roughing the passer Brett Brett.
That will help central feelings. At this point they will take it, however, they can.
Josh Niblett working on a few more blood vessels in the neck. That will put it at 37. Forty-seven seconds remaining in the half.
Now you’ve got a pretty good territory to work with here.
This final seconds of the first half. What have we got? Did we call a timeout? Are we questioning the spot fax They are asking to reset. we were waiting for a clock to
be reset .
They wanted 46 seconds. I don’t think our crew over here is about to get that done bird.
For has been on the eye that he knows how to handle that.
He’s going to hate me for mentioning his name on the air,
but so what. He hates you anyway.
That is true. Mister Magoo over there. Of course, nobody knows who Mr.
Mr. Magoo is pretty everybody in Right into the hands of the
defender and he couldn’t hold on on.
Will Singleton had it. As we like to say he had him in
a bad spot. You and I know the name of the
actor who played mister Magoo. Because he was in another one. Surfaced in the Howell the third Jim Backus was his name.
He was the voice of Magoo.
CNN even know his first name was Carson. It’s loose in the secondary.
First down at the 45 of Hoover. That will stop the clock with 23 seconds left to play.
Central has one timeout remaining. they will set the teens. Still getting the plate.
They still haven’t started the clock though. Now we are going to take a
timeout. Now will have a timeout.
I think that was a case where the red Devils couldn’t get the
play in. Now out of timeouts. Sometimes you don’t have the
right personnel on the field to run the play that you want to
run so it forces you to call a timeout.
That they were going to try to get them pays going there over
the ball when it was said and they just didn’t have the right
people out there to run the play play.
We don’t know how far he can
kick a field goal. In fact,, he may not know how
far he can kick when especially under game conditions.
Based on what the coach told us earlier in the week, this is his first year to play football. Right off the soccer field.
He said when he got him out there his first time to kick a
football .
Snapper is a baseball player. The punter is a baseball player.
The punter is a baseball player. These guys, I tell you. The master at that finding other people they can help his team.
And getting them to come out there. Webb on first and ten. From the 45. Looking.
He’s got room to run. He needs to get out of bounds.
And he will at the 26. Hoover didn’t lay a leg on him
and he was able to get out of bounds.
There is a flag down. There is a flag there and other
flag year. I’m not sure what all of these
are for and if they’re going to offset.
Is this play going to count? My guess is holding at least on
one of them. usually when you see a defenders helmet lane on the ground, it’s
not good news for the offense. That is against Hoover.
Illegal participation .
How about that? While.
That is incredible. They will spot the ball at the
16-yard line .
Let me back up. They will put it at the 11.
Now, they will put it at the 16. Look at this.
This changes things. Fourteen seconds because that
penalty was packed onto the end of the play there. There comes the helmet just came off.
You know what, that’s right. It’s not illegal number of
players is the fact that a defendant kept playing with the
helmet off. When again.
The clock is moving very bit will stop the clock to move
again. The ball will be on the 3-yard
line. They stopped the clock, they’re
going to put time back on here. They waved the clock to be
stopped just at the change. They’re going to put some time
back on probably about six seconds I believe, Graham.
They’re trying to get their guys Basically time for one play in
less they can spike the ball. Four seconds will be put back on the clock. That hasn’t happened yet. That is what Webb has lined up
to do. He’s going to try to spike it
and give them one more shot here here.
So, let’s just assume that they are able to get this play off
and spike the ball. Are you going to kick it or do
you go for the touchdown? I guess we’re going to find out.
Now what do we halfbacks Five seconds. No, they are still staying for.
Four seconds left. Web getting ready to spike it. And he does with just one second going off the clock. Josh Niblett out of the field.
He is unhappy. He wants a timeout. That will actually help Central
here to kind of make a decision on what they want to do.
I have a feeling they may be going for it because you got a
raw young kicker, take a force, he would rather have attached on
on. Well, of course.
But you do have an unproven kicker and you put them in a
situation like this with only three seconds on the clock, it
even though basically this cake would be nothing more than an
extra . you don’t want to put Makiah in
that situation. It is at an angle ended a tight
angle from that distance. Is.
More than likely Jamey DuBose is What a first half. He gave the tale of two halves
in the past. A big play here on the last play
play. What more could you ask for? Let’s see what these two teams
have up their sleeve. Carson is the lone setback. Crosses on this nearside.
Man on man coverage. Webb has a double tight end.
A double slot on the right-side. That will end the first half. We will see how big that play is here comes a flag right.
I mean way late. It is not going to affect the
play. The play is over.
After the time it’s expired. That might be huge because there is a coach.
Where he’s not supposed to be. I’m a little bit surprised
they’re allowing the coaches out I’ll realize the half is over. This will be tuned the kickoff. It on Hoover .
That means they kickoff will be 15 yards further than when it
normally is several quickly let’s go to the sideline and
visit with Josh Niblett and
Christina. Christina, go ahead.
Coach, a dramatic finish to the second quarter.
It took us a little while to get We get a good stop that they may turn the ball over.
We can do that. The field position our defense
did a good job of getting some stuff we needed to bird that was a neat stop for us, but not
smart enough on the penalties we One of that was the helmet comes up, they’ve got a stop on the
play. He kept pursuing the ball
because he’s trying to get great It’s a great half.
We’ve got to get get in and make Talk about your momentum.
You go down there to take the lead.
Third-down play, third and short short.
We had an opportunity to get him That was a big opportunity to
score. A good job of finding the
crossing rot. A good opportunity to find field
position. Then we got the ball back on the plus side our guys did a good
job of trying to make advantage of that opportunity.
We have to be ready to play the second half.
Coach, good luck. Thank you very much.
The Hoover Buccaneers trailed pretty much first of it all of
the first half, but they came out with a scoring drives to
take the lead to 14-7. A big play by the defense right
at the end. They needed by a touchdown as we had to have time.
A lot coming up including both ends, we will also have some
visit. Come back with us. That director of the Alabama
high school Association. Coach, what an amazing game
we’ve had to parse tonight. A great game.
I’m glad to be with you. Thank you so much for having us.
Thank you to every, and for what athletic Association.
I truly appreciate your commencement to Alabama

Thank you so much for what you do.
Obviously the 11th year for the champions challenge.
What made you guys want to put on this event because it sets in the special event for the
student athletes to come out and I can’t take any credit for it.
I credit the former executive director who wanted to start out the season with a kickoff
classic kind of game we had one game matching previous state
champ and so we have gone on to expand the game, get more
schools the opportunity to be here and now we have three games
games. We have a model in our office to try to experience a lifetime.
And that is what we hope to do by this event is to bring
students to Montgomery to show
great customer service and thank and to bring this calls it does
give them the experience of a lifetime.
We think it’s a special event. A great way to kick up the
season. We have a great one here tonight
tonight, what are some of the interesting topics the news
going around the AHSAA. Always interesting topics.
We had a lot of bylaw changes this year.
Always mind everybody we don’t make the rules were just
governed by the rolls rules. Our students the most let’s ever
been change for the first time we have nontraditional students
participating and we always says children.
I always like to give the credit doing the job.
That’s our principles, superintendent, our coaches
across the state to have an opportunity to save the life of
the a student athlete.
Every time they have contact with them.
Every single day. There are some things that may
go wrong during the year, but 99 99% are.
And I think our educators in the Talk about obviously we added
Class 7 ages to few years ago and how everybody has responded
to that added classification. Moore opportunity.
More championships. More opportunity. What a better way to spend your
time than to provide more opportunities.
You know, it’s not just football We made a commitment to have
seven classes for if they qualify, for every class.
I watched our volleyball, we’re about to start volleyball season
season. People don’t realize bubbly ball is the third-largest port we
have for championships and our girls are unbelievable in this
state. As I watched them compete in the some of those two didn’t it just couldn’t those very large
schools a gave them an opportunity.
Track athletes to compete it, he better and better by
classification. It just shows what that quested
for the sport and I’m very proud could you we have a good when

hype. It could’ve been 1414 life stop
by hubris defense to keep it a seven-point game.
A big gains, that was big for Hoover.
They’re going to have to deal with the penalty coming out of
halftime. It’s going to set up a short
field. We’ll see what they decide to do
do. I wouldn’t be surprised if we
see some shenanigans. We talked about the quarterbacks
quarterbacks, which one can come and, I
guess you could say both of them Both guys have stepped up.
Both have had good things happen happen.
By far, Omer had a bit of a Lowell and your scene Zion Webb, the leading push pressure in the football game.
Is because a place like this where is able to pull the ball
down, play the field to get out and get some big yardage.
Farquhar, he is throwing the football early then went through a hole where he just really
couldn’t get anything going and then picks it back up in the
second quarter. He led his team down the field
for a couple of scores. That was the first touchdown and then he ran for the second one
to give his team the lead and that’s where we are 14-7 is the
numbers are relatively relatively close although Hoover could work a
little bit on the rushing. Definitely.
Central probably would like to see at the more yards through
the air, one thing Zion Webb has not had is enough time to throw
the football. He’s been chased out of the
pocket at it a very short time a half.
They might have more time to time savers.
We’ve really only called Justyn Ross is name one time.
You’re right, he is an explosive He had some big plays a couple
on the punt return. I don’t want to say that Hoover
has necessarily taken him out of quite that factor I’m sure the
bread doubles would like. Jamey DuBose mentioned as he
didn’t know of a strategy that Josh Niblett and his staff had
with Debbie did take Justyn Ross He said if they do with that I
have some of the people step up. You know, we will see what
happens, this is a great football game.
Exactly what we expected. Two powerhouse teams going at
each other. I am anxious to see what happens in this half.
Of course, we’re going to do it again tomorrow night.
By three of the three game temp and challenge.
We will be right back here. More orange will be in the
stadium and more Reds. Let’s go down to Christina. Coach, obviously you’ve got up
on the board pretty quickly, but We made a good run right there
in the two-minute offense but would probably should’ve put the ball in the air.
We had one on one coverage, but We have some pressure off the
backside. They have been bad to him home. We were behind the sticks on
four different occasions with second and third.
Just all mental mistakes. Not playing solid football. Just come out and play. Defensively, third and five.
We gave some offside penalties. It cost us the first down.
Here we make some great plays place.
With the replay them all the way
death for them down. They bought a couple of finance.
We just got to place on put them Thank you, and was about to say ,
I go back to what he just pointed to.
They had a chance early in the early quarter and had the ball
in the 30-yard line. They couldn’t get anything out
of it. In fact, it ended up going
backwards. By a yard, a yard or two
backwards. For a lot of that second quarter
quarter, Central had negative in couple of minutes there when
they made a drive down the field field. Is, well, we’ve just got a get a taste of what we’re going to
have later on in the fall as the school football will actually
pick up again after we finish here in Montgomery and October.
We will be opening up in the RB Birmingham area, alabaster
impacts. And Thompson will kick off our
October coverage. We will have three games
following that one including Cordova and Hamilton.
Robert E Lee and enterprise then with Clement and Austin that
will be played in Decatur. Then we get into the playoffs.
We had some terrific playoff games last year.
We really did. We couldn’t have asked for a
better playoff schedule. It was a lot of fun and all the
way through to the super seven. We had a blast doing those games last year and am looking forward to it again my share.
As we left to say on TV. That means this kickoff with his at the 25. Okay.
There we go. So it will actually, the kick
will take place from the 45 of Hoover. I don’t think, you might see
something kind of sneaky here. Is going out of the booth at the end of the first half he said field the kick to it.
He said don’t be surprised if they try something on this
opening kick. This is something I saw several
years ago a similar situation where a team had the ball
literally kicking and the team on the other side of the 50 and
they pushed it and kicked it into the corner where the guy
had to catch it because it was hit to high.
They ended up starting and they do and they’re going to cover it at the 26.
That worked out well for Hoover. It is one of the best approach
kicks I’ve ever seen. They ended up stopping the
runner at about the 8-yard line. I think they ended up making a
big difference as the rain has returned. Take one of the gentlemen out in the lobby here in the press box
was talking and he was hoping that the rain skirted around us
because it looked like a pretty hefty front may be coming this
way. We will see.
Hopefully it won’t last too long long.
Applied before the first play. The umpire in the linesman as
well. I’m going to guess that’s going
to be an illegal substitution.>>Is illegal substitution.
12 people on the field. Hoover has now had two penalties and hasn’t snapped the ball.
In the rain is coming down pretty good with some win.
We are getting some people moving here and Cramton bowl.
A lot of umbrellas coming out a lot offering ponchos coming out.
That rain is coming from the West.
First and ten. Farquhar will throw deep.
Got a man, it’s caught. First down Hoover.
Jackson with a catch. And no, they tried that play to
our three times in the first half, they are seeing something
that they feel like they can get defensive backs for Central.
Lo and behold, it happened right Take it they beat a pretty good
defensive back right there in Karon Delince.
From the 30. A big start by the books. Deep and central territory.
They’re going to throw it again that time he was on the scene.
He knocks it away. What is the old saying, for me
once, shame on you, for me twice That’s right.
I always get that wrong. Me too, I mess it up every time.
I have to think about it. Second and ten.
It is pouring down here. Thankfully, it’s in the other
direction. Lesure on the stands.
For us it’s not getting our stuff like.
Not getting our equipment wet, I’m sure Richard Michaels is
happy about that. Second and ten from the 30.
Favre are looking to set up the screen pass and he just threw
that one away. That were never got on track.
Nobody really got into position that time to make that play
happen. Farquhar just basically had to
throw it at the shoe tops. They will try another play. There were plenty of white
shirts around him where it would’ve been a loss.
Third and ten and the dailies it is
really raining now. That is something you didn’t
want to see. I saw some lightning.
I’m a little surprised that leaving them on the field if you want to know the truth. Fans are scattering.
They will run it. Farquhar keeps it and he’s close to a first down I believe he got it. Another by the quarterback.
Another good think sacred that the
central defenders bid on and
then Favre are kept it , found a
little scene and got the first down. Smart play.
It was. A smart play.
Pouring down rain. No need to risk a handoff, no
need to risk up as they got the first down anyway from the 20 .
This time outside and to see if
this rain starts to affect the grip on the football.
It is boring. I’m wondering if it’s going to
affect our microphones. You can hear it in the crowd.
I don’t know if I fans can hear it.
We can hear it in our headset. Second and five. We have a flag on the near
sideline. I believe that one will go
against Huber. An illegal shift. That will be at 5-yard penalty.
That was set it back to around the 20. 10:23 left in the third quarter.
Hoover set themselves up with a great field position with the
long pass on the first play after a bit big penalty.
That’s also after which onside
kick by Central. We are I think we’re still
discussing the penalty? And we saw some lightning again .
Is illegal shift on the offense 5-yard penalty free play second
down. I believe we might get them to
clear the field. Let’s see if they keep playing.
They are telling everybody to leave the field.
That one had some thunder with it so we will have a delay.
It comes with 10:23 delay and
the third. We have a weather delay.
I think that is as smart call. Teams to the weather loom.
As the rain falls, the fans will look on the west side of
Montgomery heading this way. Well. the gametime temperature right
around 92 or 93 degrees at 7:00 7:00 p.m.
Now were starting to see a lot of lightning. This one is put on hold and we
will find out just how long we will have to wait in a matter of
moments. Hopefully our guys in the truck
can give us an idea of what they’re hearing. Officials are in the booth next
to us. I’m just glad I’m inside.
Me too. I’m glad I didn’t have to drive
in any of this this afternoon. So our first, we had one
champions challenge challenging game
actually canceled because of some really bad storms.
That was one of the first ones I they were scheduled to
play somebody. That game was completely wiped
out. That game was an exhibition game and didn’t count. I don’t remember there being a
game that had this type of delay .
That wind is really starting to whip up.
They’re as the latter over there set up and it does play that
thing down. Go ahead. It’s raining.
And it’s coming down hard. What is the old saying clicks
you know what the weather is like, stick your head out and
see? If you don’t like the weather in Montgomery, Alabama, just stick
around. That’s true.
One thing is true. When we get this game started
again, it’s going to be nice and It’s kind of the humid, even at
9:00 p.m. By the way it’s already ten
after 9:00 p.m. Why don’t we take a timeout and
we are going to take a look at a presentation of the
Southern weekend show and we will keep you abreast of what’s
happening here. We will take a timeout.
We will return hopefully to Cramton bowl and the very short
time. you have Olympic athletes,
injuring him and then you have people like me.
Of Olympic athlete straining next to the family out here for
the first time. Is one of the first places
people want to bring you. If you need to down they say you have to check this place out.
Whether you’re a world-class athlete training for competition or a weekend warrior looking for a place to unwind, the U.S.

to the Queen city. Molly, hi. Welcome to the NASCAR Hall of
Fame. I’ve never been here before.
I’m really excited. I hear your the best tour guide
around. Would you like to take a look
around? Absolutely. Here is an interesting
experience we have. We call it our track walking
experience. This is 33 degrees and it
represents the degree of thinking at the Talladega
superspeedway in Alabama. I probably wore the wrong shoes.
That’s incredible. Isn’t that incredible.
Part of the anchors. It’s got to be hard on the cars. It is our Hall of honor. This is where our five inductees are enjoined each year.
We designed it in a circle so nobody gets put in a corner. I am ready to race bred.
I guarantee you will be very entertaining. I may not be the driver, but
maybe I could be in the This is tough work. They have come full circle. The Southern weekend rolls into
Birmingham for barbecue. Q what is it about the South and barbecue?
A whole lot of potatoes. My favorite sweet potatoes.
Is the worlds largest cast iron statue. It’s all about tours the
outdoors and the Southern lifestyle.
We love weekends in the South. while come back to the Southern
weekends we’re always looking for great food and great places
to explore as we travel across the South that’s what we found
in Birmingham, Alabama. Tasting delicious white barbecue sauce during a potato chip
factory and getting up close and What can I get for you?
Lets do a small chicken. Green beans, and some deviled
eggs, please. I would always love some dessert
dessert. I might have banana pudding then
then. That will be it. What is it about the South and
barbecue? Honestly it is I never heard of White sauce on
chicken before. So this is kind of a northern
Alabama? It is.
You have the red typical barbecue sauce, but people
don’t like it as much there. A lot of people don’t any sauce
on. They just keep it and they taste good. That is good barbecue and I to I like to spend my summer weekends
weekends. when traveling through
Birmingham, one thing that cannot be missed is this huge
stature. He was commissioned in the early 19 hundreds-19 04 world fair and
it was. They wanted something to
represent Birmingham so at the time Birmingham was known for
iron and steel industry. His name was spoken broken
because falcon is the home and got to
forge. He came up with this piece of
art really and he is now the
Vulcan Park foundation was created informed the park in a
museum that we have here. And many come into the museum
you’ll see artwork created from
iron and steel. Different faces of about the
iron and steel industry and about how our residents lived in the early 19 hundreds and how
the city came about. It’s such entertaining
experience for anyone that wants learn about Birmingham
and our history. How tall is Vulcan?
Vulcan is 189 feet tall. He is the largest cast iron
statue in the world. In the world.
Yes. He is second largest statute
object in the united states. and designer hairnet because
we’re going into perfecting facilities. Take us through the process of
becoming active. Upon arrival I would be weighed
in at a truck and I would roll on the back of that truck then I would come to the potato peeler. We go into that nice fun than I
would come out on the other side Then I would continue my journey up to the conveyor system. Everything that was made by him.
The process, it’s probably about They know they want something.
They don’t realize it until we
bring them along. They e-mail you and say what you to did.

>>>>That wraps up this week’s and venturer.
Thanks for joining us. We will see you next time on
southern weekend. Welcome back to Cramton Bowl.
It continues to rain although not quite as hard.
We are still in a delay here. We are in the third quarter with Hoover still on top, trying to
add to their lead of 14-7. Mother nature had other plans.
>>Absolutely. Nice firework show that we had.
We’ve been told to minutes ago that it will be about 20 minutes before the teams come back out.
I’m sure they will be given a little warm up before we start
back to play. Probably 20-25 minutes away from getting back to football up
Cramton Bowl. I think will finish this game
tonight. It looks like it is starting to
get out of the way and hopefully Is going to be a late night. We have great high school
football and we will try to finish this game between Hoover
and central Phenix city. It is the Buccaneers leading and the third quarter.
We’re going to send it back to our studio where we will have
another edition of southern
cooking and hopefully — I saw the combo.
Anyway, we will be back your hopefully with the start of this ballgame again here.

bag and that I would show up. We’ve got the sour cream and
onion and barbecue and good old dating crispy.
We need all of this from the South.
My favorite is the barbecue. That sounds great.>>There are very few that were
doing right now. We half the last standing
tradition. And going to the birthplace
birthplace of bluegrass. Visit us at seven we can back history. This was a church .
It has a very long and storied history.
That was the —
Like. He was like a Saturday night.
Entire families are coming to the Ryman theater.
You want to see it here. It was broadcast on thank you
all over the country. Was raised on 9 credit the scale where bluegrass music started
number country music really came country.
TalkedTalk to people Ryman is today. We’ve heard dollar parking on
the radio and Johnny Cash him a rental van.
They have variety. The next night it might be Kris
Kristofferson. You’re never know you’re going
to see. This doesn’t exist anywhere else
else. I don’t think it could exist
anywhere but Nashville. This is the most interesting
thing because the sound is so amazing.
This a lot of acts that the half half.>>We welcome you back to
Cramton Bowl pinpoint. Twenty Québec to football here.
It is still raining but we are going to play through it.
No rules against playing in the Only lightning.
Put it back to action. The business —
When we last left you, they had a 14-7 lead.
Some of the folks stuck around for this one. High school students. Off the hands of the intended
receiver. The proposal not going to stay
dry long. Third and 11 from the 20. That will be down to the 15-yard line.
It will be fourth down. Interesting.
The kicking team does come out. Interesting position here. Are you going to bring out your
kicker? The answer is yes.
Josh does bring out the kicking team.
Be of 32 yarder. The high snap.
The kick is up. It is right down main Street.
Who is to say that those three points could be —
In this game. 9:30.
To go in the third quarter. A lot of time left.
The play and the defense has played, the first touchdown,
first and only touched on the exception of the last drive and
the end of the first half, they have been doing it.
Well. This is the opportunity to see
the coaching staff from central Phenix city has done to adjust.
You know they have. You know they made adjustments
to what is going on. For the most part and the second quarter, this has been timing. Central had negative yardage and they have got some help. And they’re trying to figure
stone stuff out here. Hoover, that came after they had
an onside kick because of the tape.
And the kickoff to the 5. He moves through and gets across to the 37.
Good field position for central to start this drive. It was a decent first half for
central. Let’s not forget this is the
first time they have the ball in In the second half.
See what kind of adjustment they do to their offense. I was going to say that Webb is
going to take the snap. He has to backs with him.
Maybe giving him a little bit more protection. People handed off.
I was going to see a shoestring tackle.
Loading down and out. Carson is keeping his feet.
They are. He can’t quite get back to the
line of scrimmage. Second and 12 at the 35. He worked in that the delay need
to catch up on some scores and rain might try to bring you a couple
of them here. A little bit of a slip.
No problem. The cautiousness post up 45-yard line.
A lot of contact. They are.
He just kept bouncing off tacklers.
They’ve got a nice gain. 9 yards .
Nearly slipped down there and he defenders.
That was after prom. The tackle, 3. On this near #, 22 yards for
Carson. He got up again.
Did they get it back. It is who Hoover’s football.
And as you would accept — Expect from it was with three.
And the Buccaneers, if I’m not mistaken, that is the first
turnover of the night. It is.
That is the end of the play when ball.
This context rid of the handoff was made on the play and the finally Hoover was able to grab
it and get possession.
Christian Taylor with the recovery.
First and 10. That got to the intended
receiver. That will be second and 10. Still a lot of steady rain fall
in here. A lot of the fans have come back
back. Both sides. And that is CJ Sturdivant, I
believe. Since he can have numbers,
number nine up and leave. Believe that you are right, the
Randall. With the funds for Hoover.
They get 7 so it will be third
and three. Of big one this time in a big
first down run and said that the will be first and ten. 17 yards.
We will check that when it can put the CJ Sturdivant going to
get more yards. The overlying really sealed the They are in the zone again. That a couple of times.
They happened. Burks out on the edge. I believe he will get a so a
timeout taken by the Red Devils. He has a new battery .
So 7:05 to play. 17-7, Hoover on top of Central. It is second and 5.
Here comes a flying. That is going to wipe out a
touchdown. I believe Hoover is guilty of a
hold. Not a single Hoover fan cheers. That will come off the board. That is one thing that both of
these teams have done.
That is a touchdown run. I guess you have got to be
concerned. You call a timeout even though
there was a penalty. It is a little horse collar
there. That’s going to get called just
about every time. Seven penalties now. Good timing.
I thought for a minute it was
excellent timing. He had a big stopping coming off the edge over there, I thought
that, Graham, the same thing is you. Third and 18.
All of a sudden the risk going the wrong way.
They’ve had a lot of success throwing the ball over the
middle they’ve had a little bit
of a difference with the rain falling. Farquhar.
There it is. Intercepted.
He’s got the blockers. Very cute orange jerseys over
there. He will put down at the 40.
There is the turnover .
“Frankly that is the worst pass that Farquhar has thrown tonight
tonight.>>That was the 34-yard return
as for the interception. You will see that Farquhar looks
looks. It weighs kind of —
He got to the sideline. You know that you were not going to do that.
I think that that was a slip. So Central is back in business.
There behind by 10 when they come back. Second and 8 alongside Hoover
territory. The Red Devils lead and’s Hoover he has scored 17 unanswered
points. And telecast drive, three
consecutive drives. He fights through a couple of
tackles and gets up to the 40 3-
403-yard short of the first down down.
DidThat some people lose their helmet. Just outside the 40-yard line. It is not running.
That tell them to get it going. Carson I think is going to be
short. Just about a half of a the yard
short. I guess they are going to go for it. That is four consecutive carries for Carson. This time the quarterback keeper and it is a first down .
So web picks up the first down. He is the leading carrier in the first half.
59 yards. We have got up like all of a
sudden. Is that going to be illegal
substitution. He is a 206 ball quarterback.
He shoots the gap .
Keeps the came to a minimum 2 2 yards.
I believe that was Taylor over there at first to bring down
Carson .
He had some help from Brown. Second and eight. Web keeps it.
This is from Taylor. That play worked out for them
bucks. Everything is been on the port
ground of the going to keep it on the ground.
Web is got a first down. Is got a good block out there.
I believe that that was 75. That kind of cleared the way for Kelly. They’ve been the beneficiary of
some penalties in the last few minutes.
This is as effective as their offense has been since the first quarter come I think. That last drive is at the end of the half. That is a tough at the 27. Brown gets the stop.
That will give them a couple. This is not on the run.
He had a delay. Fifty-two minutes.
Lightning stop play. A quarter to go over the middle.
Nice play. Incomplete. That was the linebacker. That was a 4.
Singleton on the play. Third and 12. Just a simple case of the ball
came out of his hand. I don’t think it was hit. That is all the perfect at the
35. Wow.
A 10-yard loss. Now put do you do.
I think that you have got to punt. Quite frankly this rain has
taken away the deep ball. Now we get the stoppage of play. 2:04 to play.
I don’t think what it go for it here. 22 yards. I can’t see him risking giving
him for the ball in this much of He could.
He could little faith that has offense rate here and Seiko get
us the first down, guys but I’m wondering if this might not have been a personnel timeout.
Maybe they didn’t have the right , something of that nature.
I’m going to bet you that Hoover
is not going to field this punt. They did not want to risk the territory. Are they bringing the offense
back? They are.
Pile. They started running the kicking team are the team back out there
there. That they shifted gears and rent the offense back out there.
A gambler over there on the right side.
For them to a mild fourth then put the two.
The got to keep 13 for a first down.
Continues to rain steady here at Here is the problem and Webb
will throw downfield.>>He made the catch.
How about that. Oh, my goodness.
What an effort. Brooks wants a facemask or
something. Watch it again.>>That was a good call.
That was an excellent call. Again I want to see the
officials that have been right on it.
That’s been a little bit of a controversial play. Down the sideline of a run.
Besought on the play. Great job by the official.
First and 10 I don’t think it is You start working on this clock
because of the weather. You would like see who for. They are going to try to avoid
turnovers.>>Especially considering what
is happening on the last pass attempt.
Second of 7. Again the handoff is running. 2 yards short of the first down. So is that Randall with the
carry picks .
He is favoring his left foot. I believe that he rolled his
ankle. He has a cramp.
He has a cramp. I can understand why. With the rain still falling , the
backup quarterback will have to command. Got to work on the left calf.
That might be about the worst feeling in the world.
There is nothing.>>There is nothing that feels
like bat. It is excruciating.
And there is nothing like it. Are you going to go there. Kidney stones are being a little bit higher. Every time a her kidney stones,
the first thing about my mind is That is Mike Peacock, ladies and gentlemen. He will be fine. They’re going to get them some
power eight or privileges or whatever they are drinking on
the sidelines. So let’s see what they do.
It looks like Bracken might take
the snap or is it. That is Jalen Parker in the
ballgame. Bracket is hit from behind. He’s been one of the defensive
heroes. And now were got to make the
center exchange with the punter. Still a steady downpour.
It is still wet. That will be the end of the
third quarter as they were punt the other way.
There is no wind .
Hoover leads it by 10 as we had to the fourth quarter. Pickering is back.
A pretty important part. Trying to draw Central offside. A good snap.
A good catch. Who has got it and they are
still fighting for red .
Hoover thinks they half it. It’s important for Central to
catch the punter to let it go. Code back to where we talked
about on the last kick. They went the other way.
Sometimes it’s better to let ago ago.
They don’t realize how slippery the ball is until they try to
catch it. That was a low line drive kick.
That was a wet the ball and it looked like he took his eye off
the ball and just as the ball arrived. And they mention his job is to
make a good handoff here. That will be second and 10.
I’m a little bit surprised that they would throw that pass. Jalen Parker, a 6-10, 210-pound
Junior. Their attending to the tending
— To the calf of the Farquhar.
They will run the football and not much for Randall.
His helmet came off in that. I don’t know if their kicker can kick it that far.
It will be close to 40 yards. He will definitely try a field
goal. They need the 11. The same play outside.
Missing the tackle. That will be close to the first
down. Let’s see where they market.
It will all depend on the spot. He is short by a half up at yard
yard. That’s make it the full yard. All tell you what, good job
breaking out up the tackle right And he is need did not go down
before he got the marker. They are leaving it out there. I am not surprised to be honest.
Locking go wrong it gets to the
the 10. Who made that block.
I’m checking it again. That was 64. He made a nice kick out block to make room for the running clock
to get the first down. One of the new faces on the
offensive line , getting an
opportunity to start. It is first and goal, ball
resting at the ten. Picking up a couple. He made sure that play didn’t go very far. 1 yard gain. Slowly but surely becoming the
enemy .
Nine minutes to go here in the ballgame. I imagine Hoover is going to
milk the clock is much as they can.
In fact, they don’t take the line of scrimmage until there is ten seconds on the play clock.
Parker hands off.
The ball came squirting out of there.
I believe it was down. Did I hear a whistle?
I think I finally did. That ball trickled into the end
zone. Is the play over.
About a yard gain, so third and goal at the 8. The first meeting ever between
these two schools .
The frankly the rain the plays and electric piece here.>>No pun intended.
Now we’ve got a timeout. I think that Josh wants this one
one.>>With 8:01 to go.
We’ve got a timeout on the field field. Hoover has also put this one
away. They’ve got a ten-point lead.
WeHe will be back. Third and goal for Hoover. Let’s see with the young
quarterback can do. The ball is fumble.
He’s got to go down on it. That is about the smartest play
so far. Well, I say it takes them out of field goal range.
Not. Here comes the field-goal unit.
That was just a poor snap.>>He made one attempt to be at
the cleanly on the first attempt attempt.
He might have tried to do something.
When he didn’t get a clean, he thought better of it.
That will send out Pickering, a 37-yard attempt and that is long enough and it is good.
What a kick in the conditions. That makes it 20-77:20 to go in So very.
Play. Seconds off the turnover by
Central. And Hoover makes them play. Quite frankly, under 7:30 to go
in the game. May they need to score something quickly.
They can afford to grind out a long drive been run all the time off the clock.
They need to strike as fast as they can.
Tonight’s presentation of the AHSAA champions challenge is
brought to you by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama.
We cover what matters. With Mike Peacock can Christina
chambers, I’m Graham Dunn at the The second of three games here
in 2016 as we kick off a new season.
He had a 52 minute lightning delay.
That is why we are still playing 10:40 in the capital city.
It’s still raining. Hoover fans are having some fun.
. A 13-point lead. 7:20 left.
That is still two scores. As it was before the field-goal. High end over end.
That one is return the now going
the wrong way. He’s going to end up almost back to him.
He in that tackle .
The Red Devils with work to do, Lane? We played on grass.
It was kind of fun. You get your facemask full of
mud. I remember those days.
I will never forget my eighth
grade year, it was pouring rain. As Webb is out of bounds.
That is what the Doctor ordered there.
It didn’t bother him. He’s done a nice job .
At the less state a metallic city, the field. is about 1.5
1.5 inches deep water and we had The pass across, the short off
the intended receiver so it will
be second and 10.
They’ve not been able to get the slowly can do something with it
tonight. That was a good chance.
He could have done something and .
It’s not a very good move. It was just right there. Taylor with the loss on the play the last two or three.
He’s had a good game.>>He has. They’ve had a lot of the front
seven for Hoover. He makes another big-play right
here on third and long. It’s like he will be seeing a
lot for Central. From the 40, Web gets rid of it
and throws it over the head of the intended receiver.
In this case was Brooks. And that will be third, let’s
make it fourth and 12.>>That was up like on the play.
>>There was up like on the play play.
It is holding against Central. Think that the smart thing to do with
would be to decline the penalty and make it fourth down. As we play here in the sauna
known as the Cramton Bowl.>>Holding on the offense.
Declined.>>I was asking at the break, it is definitely hotter.
Certainly more humid. It is still raining I know I’ve
lost a couple, —
I’ve lost a couple of pounds, which is good.
>>The. Think situation for Central as
usual. do you think that there is away? I don’t know who touched bat.
I think that both teams did. Touched at first and he covered
it. Central touched it first. I think band of that getting the football.
Explain how that his first pitching.
Of Central had touched the football, then Hoover fumbles
that and then they could’ve taken the initial touch position
position. Let’s check this out. This player did touch it. And Central had an opportunity
to get the football right there. That has kind of been the story
of the game. I hate to do this.
Going to talk about last year again.
It has got the same field that basically the same score in this final game.
They’re still going with the young quarterback.
Nothing doing there. That will be a loss of a couple.
I think that we are going to take our heat timeout.
Soap will take it as well. 5:57 left.
Hoover on top of the season opener. Those guys, give them a big
thumbs-up. They deserve a metal. There standing out in that rain.
I was just about to say I
actually bought a towel tonight. Second and well.
I’m sure that somebody like to buy it were rented. The ball came loose. He was the defender.
Another loss on the play. Central is selling out.
They note that the young quarterback, Brooks came in. Farquhar when one perhaps.
>>He still on the bench with the trainer.
He is moving around. I think he is probably okay.
This plenty may not want to risk Third and 14. Parker from the shotgun.
There is no legal move by somebody on the left side.
I think that they’re going to be He’s just in the backfield again
again. We should also pay homage to
these jumped win and the. Mark Russell as the line judge.
Green as the field judge. The only guys that are happy are the clock operators. Third and 19. Those guys out up the North
Alabama official Association. They are a long way from her
home in getting out of bounds. That is not what Hoover wants. Turner is chasing him out of
bounds. That will stop the clock.
Certainly that is the factor at this moment if you are a Central fan definitely. Another loss on the play of a
couple. Pickering will print. And Ross is deep can standing
around midfield. He shanked that went off the
side if his foot. Look at that.
Actually he slipped. Not bad there for Pickering. They set up at the 42.
We are back here tomorrow night ,
game three of the champions challenge.
People have Andalusia and Brooks
Brooks. It should be a good game.
Saturday night high school football.
Got to love it. A quick pass.
That is out up the hands of the intended receiver.
Brooks got a little bit to
happen this rainy condition. The rain has really slowed down.
Every time we say that it back up again.
It is a lot less that I was a few minutes ago. We were just moving along.
Purchased moving along right here. we have the second-best 10. Rolling right.
That is a good block. That whistle so out of the hand
up the intended receiver. Can’t get awful lot of help
right now. He is not exactly lost the ball
in there. He is throwing the bullet. If anybody wondered about Webb
his arm, he answered that question.
He’s just trying to catch that one with his chest.
Third and 10. One back set .
Then there is Carson, he set the the first half.
Ross is set up on the near side The interception is made. And now breaking tackles.
How do you like this. Oh, my goodness.
I believe that is Stephen call. A 54-yard return.
Let me check that number again. They’re just having some fun.
That is number 90. He should play at center field. Stay on his feet. If he had the sound effects, I
will let you beat the bringing up the foul. He’s probably going to go over
to coach and say I can run the football.
He is number 30. There we go again.
I thought that that that is Abercrombie. I’m not going to get the ball on the ground again.
No surprise. I love Hoover.
I love the Buccaneers. A lot of the fans.
I don’t like their uniforms. It has nothing to do with the
colors. It’s just hard to see the
numbers. It’s a struggle tonight. We are oh way away from the
field. It is difficult to see those
numbers from the distance that the are.
It doesn’t help, as I mentioned earlier, the Jersey kind of gets tucked under..
The paid Jersey now, they ride up in the numbers fold up.
And I don’t know what that spot
is, look at Parker.
You see his back and when he turns around, it looks like a
number one and a backwards C. So forgive me .
Back when you and I played, we didn’t have that problem. Needless to say if Central has
any chance of all, they really can give us anything. Have to play. This game, as I mentioned,
really took a turn .
Hoover was doing a good job. They had moved the ball on the
first series of the second half. Then the brains just came in
obviously stop anything. Hoover was able to take
advantage of that. A couple of nifty moves by
bracket. The Hoover cheerleaders were.
Snipe. They got to use them. That’s where we are going to
start to see the baseball cap. I know that they were hapless to begin the game.
Here they are again. Third and about 4.
Bracket tries to cut it outside. Nothing doing. This is a very big field-goal
for Central. We are just about at two minutes
minutes. Still happened started the play
clock yet. He’s going to say, hang on.
Let’s some of that time to go off. It will be officially a 29-yard
attempt. They are going to wait until the very last minute to try to kick .
That one is good. So another three points for
Pickering. He might have to consider him
for player of the game. I know we’ve had some nice plays
plays. This type of weather is pretty
good. Basically he is out of reach.
He didn’t hit the ball very well He missed a field goal.
He has moved everything. He has gotten away for some good points.
Including that last one that he spoke done and kind of shanked
done. Is the Captain the field of play and got.
He hit three field goals. Thirty-two, 37 that one is a 29-
29-yard field goal. 2 of 4.
47 yards. I daresay if he ball well, he
would’ve had a chance. Certainly tried a little bit too hard.
Just 1:30 left. And the must something crazy
happens, Hoover is going to get out of here with a victory, oh
West one but a victory. He will take the victory wet,
dry, powdered form, however you get it. And Jamey DuBose is telling us
coming into this game for going to treat this game like what it
is. We’re playing against great team
team. It’s a measuring stick to where
we feel like we’ve got to go when Sewell we’ve got to do.
Two met up. To match up a team like this We are not making predictions or anything.
I guarantee you that they will be in the picture.
These two teams are definitely going to be in the picture
coming into the season. Both coaches, I think, have
something to be happy about. I think that they’re going to
find some things that they are not happy about that is second
and 10. Hoover has got that tough reach bear
arch nemesis now. And just a minute I want to make mention of there was an event
that and mother game . I want to give some kudos during the rain delay.
Or during the lightning delay. I want to try to miss, Bob Jones played up in North Alabama and
running back for Bob Jones Brad Anderson, had 299-yard runs from
scrimmage in that ballgame and I a win over a very good
team. They have a very good program in South Carolina so a big win for
Bob Jones and a big night for Brad Anderson. Third and 10, that one is
intercepted. At the 30, that is will
Singleton, the same year. And just about do it .
1:04 to be exact. we are going to see this throw
from Zion Webb. Gets to the wrong side of Justyn Ross.
The defender was the only one that had a chance to catch it
and he did. By the way, two of them are out
there. They really cap Justyn Ross in
check. I believe going into this fourth quarter, he had one catch .
He’s been targeted a couple of times here in the fourth quarter
quarter. That did not get him the ball .
The past just did not get there. And the effort popular —
Don’t think it’s a victory formation or at least not that. The got to use their final
timeout .
Timeout Central Phenix city, third and final timeout.
We mentioned Hoover and what they have ahead of them.
The Red Devils are actually going to be playing back here I
think at least one time. They will be in the same region.
They’ve got to go to press fill which, by the way, they were
behind. The last them assault the score
was 42-32 in that game .
We don’t know what we are going to see out of Prattville.
Let’s check out what Hoover has got.
They get to go to Texas next week . They start region play.
>> How did alley, Texas do.
I didn’t get that .
That didn’t come on Twitter. Keep an eye on those rebels. Didn’t they have a win as well.
I think they got beat. Chelsea came back and beat them.
They were ahead. I know that much. One more snap and.
Thing on what the officials want schedule first to get that open
week and a big one on September
September 2. And that’s at Opelika, not a
region game. It’s always interesting to see
the East Alabama team. He comes over there to play an
active the second then the next week come back to play Lee. So that is going to take care of this one.
Hoover fell behind by 7 for much They scored 23 unanswered.
The only thing that stops them is the rain with a lot of
lightning. That was it.
The Buccaneers begin the season 1-0 .
Central Phenix city begins 0-1. Let’s check out who is our
player of the game. The player of the game is —
We have no idea. Appear late it is going to be
Mr. Farquhar, who didn’t play much of the fourth quarter
because it didn’t have to. His work got them the lead
including a nice run here. Then he scored one on his own .
One passing, one rushing. He had a great first start.
He made some good decisions, really good decisions.
He had a little lower in the first order with Central defense that got him a little confused.
The coaching staff got them back that he was good at doing. So Hoover will enjoy the ride
back to the Birmingham area . While we are at a, let’s take a
look at the jacks player of the game. And it comes by virtue of a big
turnover. And a return. He looks down there, didn’t he. Abercrombie getting that
interception and not going down. Plenty of yardage.
I thought he was going to go down there.
He got away from the tackle are. He got a way from the big return instead of the last field goal. His teammates really put the So 23-7 is the final score.
The going to be the final trophy Belief that they are going to
show you that. So hang around four minutes.
That got the respective side .
A lot of players to go through. This a lot of players out there
getting some metals two. Most of these teams are having a lot of positives to the game.
They also have a lot of things
to correct. Both teams have a lot of things
to correct. You might think that Central
might have the biggest thing that they need to correct. Sometimes that is misleading.
They’ve done a lot of good things tonight. They’ve got good performances
out of the unit at times and Hoover , Josh Niblett is not
happy with penalties. They had a couple, three more in the second half.
I’m sure he has got a nice list of things to work for as well as Hoover with nine penalties for
86 yards. Central with seven penalties for 62 yards on the night.
So neither team can be real happy penalty numbers .
Some of course are more costly than others.
A lot of good things to build on white Jamey DuBose told us is
this would be a measuring stick for his team and where they
needed to go. The remitted to have that trophy presentation .
Will take up the public address announcer here at the Cramton
Bowl. I guess they’re going to wait
until they have all the medals handed out.
There’s so many players down there.
There’s a bunch. Well be due back, white why
don’t give you a couple of stats stats.
Not the greatest of nights for either team.
Offensive lay Hoover 224 probably yards.
208 Central. They both ran about the same
number of plays. The turnovers are big Central
with three fumbles. Now the trophy presentation will be.
Sent didn’t by the executive director, Tony stalwart ,
executive director, Alvin brings brings, director of the
Association. First the runner-up trophy goes
to Central Phenix city Red Devils coached by Jamey DuBose. and now the championship trophy
goes to the Hoover Buccaneers super Buccaneers
coached by Josh Niblett .
Thank you for supporting the 11 11th annual champions
challenge. We wish both teams at all the
fans safe travels home. Once again who police are winner tonight, 23-7, and again that
had a lot of buildup and quite frankly it was living up to that and tell the rain came and slow
this down a bit. Hoover doesn’t care.
They are going home with the win win.
They start the season 1-0 well Central starts the season 0-1.
We’ve got one more for night .
Andalusia and Brooks will be here at 7:00.
People be here on Raycom and we start off 2016.
Good night, everybody.
