AHSAA Cross Country Spotlight for Week 5
McKenzie Hogue Runs Fastest Time of 2018 to Beat a Field of 292 at Scottsboro Classic
MONTGOMERY – Thompson High School senior McKenzie Hogue turned in the fastest 5,000-meter time of the 2018 AHSAA cross country season last weekend winning the prestigious Scottsboro Classic Invitational girls’ Class 5A/7A championship race with a time of 18:13.66. The impressive victory earned the Thompson runner this week’s AHSAA Cross Country Spotlight.
A field of 292 girls competed in the race held at the John R. Esslinger Trail, aptly named for the legendary former Scottsboro High School track and cross country coach who was inducted into the Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame in 2010 and the Madison County Sports Hall of Fame in 2011.
Hogue, who was the only runner to earn www.alabamarunners.com Golf Elite Status at the Classic, trimmed 50 seconds off her 2017 time that earned her runner-up. She captured two firsts in the Class 7A 1,600 and 3,200 meters at the 2018 AHSAA Indoor and Outdoor State Track Championships last school year as a junior and was second to McGill-Toolen Catholic senior Grace Jensen at the 2017 AHSAA Class 7A State Cross Country Championships. Hogue clocked her best overall time in that race (18:12.57) and was only a second off that time last weekend.
Junior Lily Hulsey of Mountain Brook was second at 19:03.27 and Huntsville senior Abby Weitenbeck third with a 19:04.33 finish. The Spartans won the girls’ team title in the 5A/7A division with 29 points.  Homewood was second with Huntsville third with 118 points in the 25-team field.
Rogers junior Jaycee Biffle crossed the finish line in 21:28.44 to win the Class 1A/4A division title in the field of 156 runners. In all, 448 girls’ runners competed in the Scottsboro Classic.
The boys’ Class 5A/7A race that featured 441 participants came down to just three as Will Pinson of Huntsville edged Hunter Harwell of Mountain Brook and Sam Moultrie of Guntersville to win the race. Only five seconds separated the trio.Pinson, a freshman, clocked 15:52.38 and Harwell, a senior, crossed the finish line at 15:55.60. Moultrie, a junior, came in at 15:57.63.
Huntsville emerged as the team champion with 39 points. Host Scottsboro was second with 84 and Mountain Brook third with 124.
Westbrook Christian senior Mitchell Cook beat a field of 185 in the Class 1A/4A division with a winning time of 17:18.30. Raleigh Stamps of Rogers was second at 17:31.29, and Cook’s Westbrook teammate Jonah Morris third clocking 17:44.96.  Pleasant Valley won the team competition with five runners finishing in the top 24. The Raiders had 71 points, Ohatchee was second with 107 and Westbrook third with 112.

Hoover High School’s Josh Niblett Named Alabama All-Star Head Coach for 2018 Alabama-Mississippi Football Game

Coach Niblett Press Release AHSAA Aug 2018

Hoover High School’s Josh Niblett Named Alabama All-Star Head Coach for 2018 Alabama-Mississippi Football Game*

MONTGOMERY – Hoover High School head football coach Josh Niblett will be the head coach for the Alabama All-Star football squad for the 32st annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game next December.  The game will be played at Montgomery’s legendary Cramton Bowl on Monday night, Dec. 17 with a 6:30 p.m., kickoff. This will be the first game in the 31-year history to be played on Monday night.

Jamie Lee, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA) made the announcement at the 2018 Champion Challenge press conference Thursday at the AHSAA office.

Niblett, who served as head coach of the Alabama All-Stars in 2009, is one of the nation’s top high school coaches. He has coached six Hoover teams to AHSAA state championships and Oneonta to one title. The Bucs have been to the state finals every year except 2015 and 2008 since Niblett took over the program.

“It was a great experience when I coached in the game in 2009,” Niblett said. “I am looking forward to the opportunity again. It is very important to high school football in this state.”

Alabama lost 42-7 last year in Hattiesburg but still holds a 22-9 edge in the annual game that has pitted the top high school senior players from Alabama and Mississippi since 1988. Mississippi has won both games played in Mississippi (2015 and 2017). Alabama has a 22-7 edge in all games played in Alabama.
Piedmont’s Steve Smith was head coach in 2017.

Niblett, the son of a high school football coach, owns a 129-16 record at Hoover, the state’s largest high school. His Bucs have won 89% of their games with state titles in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017 and finished second in 2008, 2010 and 2011.  Oneonta won the 3A title in 2004 and was runner-up in 2003. His overall record is 194-48 (80%).

“Coach Niblett is one of our most outstanding high school head coaches in the nation,” said Lee.

The rest of the Alabama All-Star staff for next December’s game will be announced in the near future, Lee said. The AHSADCA, in conjunction with the Mississippi Association of Coaches (MAC) administers the all-star game each year.

CLASS 7A CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: Hoover 17, McGill-Toolen Catholic 7.

CykK0cXXUAAFMgf.jpg

    AUBURN – Hoover High School’s last defensive series of the Super 7 Class 7A state championship game Wednesday night  was perhaps the best series of the 2016 season.
Three straight sacks on second, third and fourth down left defending state champion McGill-Toolen Catholic (13-1) some 36 yards shy of a first down and closed the final chapter on the Bucs’ 17-7 victory and the 12th state title in school history.
The Super 7 Championships continue Thursday at Jordan-Hare Stadium with defending state champion Piedmont (14-0) facing Mobile Christian (13-1) in the 3A title game at 11 a.m., followed by defending state champion Maplesville (13-0) vs. Pickens County (11-3) in the 1A finals at 3 p.m. Beauregard (12-1) and Wenonah (11-2) close out Thursday’s schedule with the 5A finals at 7 p.m. All games are being televised live over the Raycom Media Network. Go towww.pathtotheplayoffs.com for more details. Tickets are also available at www.preptix.com.
Led by 2016 7A Championship Game MVP Kholbe Coleman, Hoover (12-2) finished the night with nine sacks and 82 lost yards for the Yellow Jackets’ talented offense.  Coleman finished with eight tackles, one sack for a 15-yard loss and 3.5 tackles resulting in 23 negative McGill-Toolen yards. Coach Caleb Ross’s Jackets finished with minus-43 yards rushing on the night.  Quarterback Bubba Thompson was 26-of-39 passing for 280 yards but finished with a negative 58 yards rushing on 16 carries.
The Hoover offense was solid – building a first-half 10-0 lead on junior place-kicker Barret Pickering’s 42-yard field goal late in the first quarter and C.J. Sturdivant’s 2-yard TD run midway through the second period.  The kick was the 19th field goal of the season for Pickering, a Hoover school record.
Sturdivant, who finished with a game-high 96 yards rushing on 16 carries, dashed 37 yards with 8:50 left in the third quarter for his second touchdown of the night to give Hoover a 17-0 lead.
McGill-Toolen clawed back, however. Thompson connected with Jalen Tolbert with 4:13 remaining for a 30-yard TD pass to cap a 10-play, 80-yard march. Tolbert finished with four catches for 60 yards.  Hoover got the onside kick, and then turned to its defense to seal the win.
Hoover defensive end Christon Taylor added three sacks and six tackles and Ben Abercrombie had nine stops. Jayden Jordan also had a key interception.
McGill-Toolen, which saw its 22-game winning streak come to an end, got a strong defensive effort Carlton Martial. The linebacker had 11 solo tackles and six assists for 17 total stops. Receiver Trey Roberson also had six catches for 78 yards, and Larry Rembert, five catches for 51 yards.
Hoover has won 10 state titles in the last 16 seasons.
