High School News

Just a touch on Alabama high school current events....

LeFlore (Mobile) is debuting in USAToday's Super 25 at #15 returning 5 starters with Jr F Nick Williams and G Joshua Wesley. Alias may want to go check these guys out to see if there is another Brandon Hollinger in-the-rough...

Also, the SportsMed Shoootout will be here in Huntsville featuring Bama signee Rico Pickett playing for Decatur. Also participating in this tourney is Erwin High School, featuring Sophomore phenom DeMarcus Cousins, rated as one of the top sophomores in the country. Defending 3A champ Madison Academy will be there along with defending Mississippi 5A champ Murrah, which is the school of ex-Bama great Mo Williams.

The bracket can be viewed here SportsMED Shootout

Le Flore is bigger, faster and more skilled than ever. Unfortunately, we will not have many chances to see them locally before the regular season starts up. I understand they are playing in lots of regional/national tournaments.

I hope to see them more than once this season. I don't know whether we will be producing the Friday Night Game of the Week, but those two guys certainly cannot pull that show off without me to tell all about it over drinks afterward. (I'm not sure what else I contribute, except to find the chairs for them to sit on.)
