For the first time in six years all three divisions in Fyffe’s youth football league will make the Super Bowl Championship game.
The A team (10-12 year olds), B team (8-9 year olds) and C team (6-7 year olds) each made the championship game that will be held on Saturday at Albertville.
“It’s really big for all three divisions to make it and we are really proud of them,” said Fyffe league commissioner and C-team head coach John Fowler. “They changed up the age groups this year and we were a little nervous about it but it’s all worked out. That says a lot about the kids and all the work they’ve put in.”
The A team has an 8-1 record and will play at 6 p.m. on Saturday. The B team has an 8-2 record and will play at 2:30 p.m. and the C team has a 6-3 record and will play at 11 a.m.
This is not the first time Fyffe has had team’s make or win championships.
Fowler said football culture in Fyffe is key to the success.
“What really makes us successful is the community,” Fowler said. “Fyffe is a football community and it is supported from the top all the way down.
Fyffe High School is defending Class 2A state football champion.
Fowler said some of those results on the high school level start at the youth level.
“Coach (Paul) Benefield is over it and we follow his lead,” Fowler said. “We run his basic offense and we can tell that it’s paid some dividends on the varsity level.”
The games will be at McCord Field in Albertville on Saturday.
