Andalusia, Straughn to fight for Super Bowl championship

Published 12:48 am Saturday, November 9, 2013

Andalusia and Straughn will be playing for the granddaddy of them all and what they’ve been playing for this year — the Tri-County Super Bowl Championship.

The local tinymite football teams will be kicking off today at 10 a.m. at the Greenville YMCA.

Andalusia has already played the Tigers this season. The Bulldogs beat Straughn 26-6 in the first game of the year.

Bulldogs coach Michael Jackson said it’s got to be a total team effort to get the win today.

“We’ll be ready,” Jackson said. “We’re going to have to rely on everybody out this year.”

The theme this week for the Bulldogs is going back to the basics, Jackson said.

“That’s all we’re doing,” he said Monday night. “We’re not going to do any conditioning. We’re going to come out here and learn how to tackle, catch and throw.

“Those are the keys,” he said.

Additionally throughout the week, Andalusia had guest speakers such as Michael McCalman, the high school’s starting quarterback; Montel Lee, the starting linebacker for AHS; and Andalusia native and Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Nico Johnson.

“We wanted them to have a fun week to remember,” Jackson said.

This game is a pretty important game for the Bulldogs because they are searching for another league championship. Andalusia won it all last year.

“This is the final game of the season,” Jackson said. “It’s going to be tough.”

Right after the tinymite championship, Straughn will play Greenville at 11:30 a.m. in the termite league.
