According to the Alabama Sports Writers, this week’s Piedmont - Glencoe game is a top 5 matchup in Class 3A and one of the biggest games in the state.
TV24 Sports dropped by Piedmont practice Wednesday afternoon as the 3rd ranked Bulldogs install their gameplan for No. 5 Glencoe. Piedmont has so far been one of the most impressive and consistent teams in the viewing area… They are averaging 47 points a game in wins over Cherokee County, Ashville and Ohatchee and outscoring opponents 143-38. Head coach Steve Smith says he’s been pleased with the progress in the first 3 weeks.
The Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets have a long rivalry, but its has picked up bigtime steam over the last eight years as both teams become major players in Class 3A. This Friday night’s winner will obviously get the votes of the pollsters statewide, but Smith says the rankings are just an added bonus to what is already a very strong East Alabama rivalry.
