The regular season is winding down. Just three more weeks until we begin postseason play. Region titles are on the line in the Tennessee Valley including the one in Class 6A Region 7. Friday night’s matchup pitted two of the hottest teams in the state against each other, the Muscle Shoals Trojans and the Athens Golden Eagles. We spoke with Athens head coach Cody Gross before the big game. We tried to get in touch with Muscle Shoals coach Basden as well, but he’s a very busy man on Fridays.
Muscle Shoals stayed undefeated winning 49 to 21 the final score. Big night from the Trojans senior quarterback Logan Smothers, and we caught up with him after the game. “Being undefeated that’s a big goal for us, we want to win every game we play,” said Smothers. “We’ve continued to do that, we’re going to continue to do that. I mean we battled hard, we fought throughout the whole game. That’s what really matters. We got the win. It was a little tense at first. I like that getting a little playoff feel, that always helps us going forward.”
