Glencoe Football Preps For Quarterfinal Round
With temperatures in the low 30s, the Glencoe Yellow Jackets made it out to the practice fields Tuesday as one of eight teams in the state in CLass 3A preparing for a game.
Glencoe will travel for the first time this post-season making the long trip to the Northwest corner of the state against Colbert County. Last Friday night, the Jackets battled their way back from a hole to beat Lauderdale County 17-14 to keep their state championship hopes alive.
This group of seniors have been to the playoffs in every season while on the Glencoe campus, but you have to go back to 1996 for the last Yellow Jacket team to make the third round. They will use their experience and confidence to make more history.
Colbert County was the same team to knock Glencoe out of the postseason last year, but (in the featured video) they explain why revenge will not be on their minds.
Glencoe is one of several teams in the East Alabama Community in the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.
