FLASH NOTES: Back to the gridiron this week is the Aggies. They have a game that is important to try and keep tabs with the rest of those around the top of 5A, Region 6.
Mortimer Jordan is the defending region champion and has done well with a 36-8 record since 2014. The Blue Devils played in the 5A state championship in Tuscaloosa two years ago and have reached at least the 2nd of the state playoffs the last three seasons.
Fairview will have to play flawless on the road where the Devils are 8-2 in their last 10 games dating back to 2016.
George Redding can tie Hall of Fame coach Dafford Smith for all time victories at Fairview if the Aggies pull off the upset. Smith was 65-54 in 11 seasons, Redding is 64-45 in his 11th year at his alma mater.
A victory moves the Aggies to 1-1 as they resume regional play on the first Friday in October with a game at Dafford Smith Stadium vs. West Point.
