Springwood School joins local teams in state rankings

There are now four local teams in the most recent Alabama Sports Writers Association (AWSA) poll.

Lanett has returned to the Alabama High School Athletics Association (AHSAA) 1A No. 1 spot this week. The Panthers defeated LaFayette High School 35-7 last Friday night. Senior safety and wide receiver Trikweze Bridges stole the show with his second-consecutive pick six and two receiving touchdowns.

LaFayette, on the other hand, moved down from No. 5 in 2A to No. 8 after the loss. The Bulldogs have an opportunity to bounce back this week as they travel to Vincent.

The Alabama Independent Schools Association (AISA) featured two teams this week.

The team returning to the AISA rankings is Chambers Academy, who have outscored its opponents 136-14 so far this season. The Rebels are now No. 4 after coming in at No. 7 last week.

The new team appearing in the rankings are the Springwood School Wildcats. The Wildcats debut at the No. 10 spot this week after starting the season at 2-0. The attack of sophomore O.J. Tolbert and senior Dylan Anderson has been crucial to Springwood’s success so far this season in the Wing-T offense. Senior linemen Chris Ramseur and Sam Leva continue to lead the team as well.
