While all of their fellow classmates are out of school and enjoying the warm weather and holiday break, the Alexandria football team is hard at work - and they would have it no other way. TV24 Sports caught up with the Valley Cubs at practice on Wednesday as they get prepared for a rematch against Mortimer Jordan in the semifinals of the Class 5A playoffs. The Cubs beat the Devils 39-36 in week 6 of the regular season. They know if they can play their best game one more time, they can punch their tickets to the state championship.
Meanwhile in Class 4A, the Munford Lions are also in a rematch game against Leeds. Munford won the regular season contest but the Green Wave are the defending state champions and eliminated the Lions in the quarterfinals of the 2014 playoffs. Munford coach Bill Smith told TV24's Mickey Shadrix that Leeds is a much improved team since their week three game.
