B.B. Comer Tigers ready to prove they belong in rematch showdown with Highland Home

SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The B.B. Comer Tigers are looking forward to Friday night’s Round 2 game at Legion Stadium as they battle with Highland Home.

These two football programs are quite familiar with one another. Just last year, they tackled each other in the AHSAA Class 2A semifinals with the Tigers winning at home and going on to the state championship game at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn.

The Tigers hope to get to Tuscaloosa’s Bryant-Denny Stadium this year for the 2A pinnacle, but in order to do that, they will have to get past Highland Home again.

Highland Home are a pretty good squad flying to the Tigers’ backyard. B.B. Comer has an unblemished record at 11-0 and Highland Home enters into the huge contest at 10-1.

Even more than winning the game, B.B. Comer wants to let everyone know that they belong here. After losing last year’s championship game, they’ve run to an undefeated season and a number one ranking since early on in the gridiron campaign, a feat that has not been done at B.B. Comer in over 25 years.

I asked Head Coach Adam Fossett in our weekly interview if it bothered him that they have not played a close game to this point in the season. Let’s be honest, in the first round last week, they were cruising 42-0 at the end of the first quarter.

He answered me by saying, “Well, we have played pretty well for most of this season, but at some point you can count on some adversity. I don’t know if it will come against Highland Home, but it will come. When it does, we will see how we respond, but I believe that our leadership with our kids and coaches will be prepared.”

Fossett added, “However, Highland Home is a very good football team and should be our toughest test of the season.”

The Tigers need a huge crowd behind them to help with pursuing the great prize of winning a state championship. They want to take one game at a time, and this is the next one.

One thing is for certain, the B.B. Comer Tigers belong here, and it is going to take a very good football team to convince them that they are not welcome.

The game can be heard with pregame activity at 6:30 p.m. Friday night on MIX 106.5. Gregg Wykoff, Tony White, and Caleb Connelly will have the call.

Good luck to Adam Fossett and the B.B. Comer Tigers!
