Tyynismaa, Strand Finish Strong in the 20th Jesse Owens Classic to Claim AHSAA X-C Spotlight

MONTGOMERY – AHSAA runners Ethan Strand of Vestavia Hills High School and  Amaris Tyynismaa of Montgomery Catholic High School were the top finishers from the state at the prestigious 20th annual Jesse Owens Classic cross country championships held at Oakville Indian Mounds and Museum course last weekend to share the AHSAA Cross Country Spotlight this week. The course will host the AHSAA state championships in November.
Strand, a sophomore, finished the 5,000-meter race in 15:39.90 to cross second behind senior Davis Bove of Centennial (TN). Bove won the title with a 15:32.10 time.

2018 Alabama All-Star Football Roster for 32nd Alabama-Mississippi Game

2018 ALABAMA ALL-STAR FOOTBALL ROSTER - Encore Sports Medicine

40-Player Roster set for 32nd Alabama-Mississippi Game

   MONTGOMERY – Senior quarterbacks Taulia Tagovailoa of Thompson High School and Bo Nix of Pinson Valley headline the 2018 40-player All-Star roster for Alabama for the upcoming 32th annual Alabama-Mississippi Classic set to be played at Cramton Bowl on Monday, December 17 at 6:30 p.m.

The squad was announced by Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA) Director Jamie Lee. The AHSADCA, in conjunction with the Mississippi Association of Coaches (MAC), administers the all-star game each year. Raycom Media will be televising the game live.

Alabama holds a 22-9 edge in the series, which began in 1988 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Mississippi won last year’s game at Hattiesburg 42-7 – the largest margin of defeat for Alabama in the series history.

“We thank the selection committee for doing an outstanding job selecting this year’s team,” Lee said. “We are excited about all the players chosen, but these two quarterbacks are special.”

Both quarterbacks have had already committed to Southeastern Conference Schools. Tagovailoa has committed to the University of Alabama, where his brother Tua is currently the starting quarterback. And Nix has committed to Auburn, where his dad and head coach Patrick Nix was a quarterback from 1992-95.

The team is comprised of 40 seniors selected by the AHSADCA All-Star Selection Committee, which has been meeting and studying players nominated for several months. The team must have at least one player chosen from each of the AHSAA’s eight districts and at least one player from each of the seven AHSAA classifications. Three players may be chosen from two AHSAA member schools, but no more than two players may be selected from any other member schools. Head coach is Josh Niblett of Hoover.

Tagovailoa has compiled an 18-1 record at Thompson High School since moving to Alabaster prior to the 2017 season. He led the state in passing last season completing 287-of-435 passes attempted for 3,820 yards and 36 touchdowns. He is off to an even faster start this season with 1,991 yards passing and was  ranked second in the nation heading into last week.
