The four played crucial roles in helping the Eagles, coached by Mitchell’s father, Rex, achieve the second state playoff berth in program history. Twenty-one years later, new Albertville head coach Cliff Mitchell and his defensive coordinator, Lyles, and their team launched preseason practice Monday. The Aggies went 6-5 and advanced to the state playoffs in 2018. AHS kicks off the Mitchell era by hosting Columbia on Aug. 30.
