Champions Challenge Classic Headlines AHSAA First Week of Prep Football Action on TV
  

MONTGOMERY – Raycom Sports and the NFHS Network kick off the AHSAA’s 2018-19 school year Thursday night with the first game of the 13th annual Champions Challenge Classic at Cramton Bowl. The NFHS Network plans 37 events total for the first weekend of the new school year – including middle school and junior high football and volleyball.
    Raycom, which will televise live on its D-2 (Bounce) channel over its Raycom Network of stations across the state, will have Graham Dunn and Christina Chambers behind the mikes. Thursday’s football battle pits the defending Class 1A defending state champion Sweet Water Bulldogs and 2017 Class 3A semifinalist Clarke County (11-3).  Friday’s final Champions Challenge contest features Thompson (12-1), a Class 7A semifinalist in 2017, and Class 7A James Clemens. Both games kick off at 7 p.m., and both will also be live-streamed over the NFHS Network’s subscriber-based network. The links can be found at www.ahsaa.com and at www.nfhsnetwork.com.
     The AHSAA Radio Network will broadcast both games over its network of radio affiliates across the state and will be available via the internet via www.ahsaa.com. The Radio Network will also provide the NFHS Network audio.
     The NFHS Network has eight AHSAA football games and two volleyball matches scheduled to be live-streamed Thursday night. Friday’s schedule has 18 football games scheduled and five more on Saturday. The headliner outside the Champions Challenge games is Saturday’s battle between defending Class 6A state champion Pinson Valley (15-0) and defending Class 7A champion Hoover (11-3). Kickoff for that game is set for 11 a.m. at Hoover Stadium.
    Three AHSAA teams will be playing in Atlanta on Saturday with all games set for the NFHS Network thanks to the Atlanta Public School NFHS Network School Broadcast Program. Sidney Lanier plays Westlake at 2 p.m., Clay-Chalkville takes on Griffin (GA) at 4 p.m. and Central-Phenix City faces Benjamin Mays (GA) at 7 p.m.
     Hoover and Vestavia Hills are scheduled to play the first varsity volleyball match of the season over the AHSAA’s NFHS Network School Broadcast Program. The Bucs and Rebs tip off Thursday at 7 p.m. at HHS. Geneva and Kinston have a match set for the NFHS Network on Saturday at 4 p.m.
    Andalusia and Saraland are each broadcasting Friday’s football contest over the NFHS Network. Opelika goes to Callaway (GA) Friday with both schools also planning to live-stream the contest via the NFHS Network SBP.
