8-18 Fyffe backfield IMG_8273.jpg

As the high school football season enters the home stretch, it's Fyffe and Guntersville who continue to represent the Sand Mountain region in the latest batch of Alabama Sports Writers Association football rankings.

Fyffe, who has been No. 1 in Class 3A since the preseason, again held down the top spot with a unanimous vote after rolling past North Sand Mountain last Friday, 42-14.

The Devils are on 51-game winning streak, the longest streak in the country, and can clinch the 3A Region 7 championship this Friday with a win over neighboring rival Geraldine.

In 5A, the Guntersville Wildcats check in at the No. 5 spot for the third week in a row. Since an opening-week loss, the 'Cats have rattled off six wins in a row, and have averaged nearly 50 points per game in their last four wins.

Guntersville can also clinch its Region, 5A Region 7, with a win this Friday against rival Boaz.
