DEFENDING 3A STATE CHAMPION PIEDMONT BEGINS 2022 ATOP 3A PRE-SEASON POLL - SEVERAL OTHER LOCAL TEAMS RANKED TO BEGIN THE SEASON IN TWO WEEKS
Piedmont will open the season on the 19th when they host Fyffe in a non-counter pre-season jamboree. The Bulldogs kick off defense of their 3A title in Week 1 when they travel to Centre to face the 4A Cherokee County Warriors. Piedmont received all 21 first-place votes. Saks, Ohatchee, and Walter Wellborn all received votes, but not enough to crack the pre-season 3A Top 10.
Thompson starts off 2022 back atop 7A, with Central Phoenix City, Auburn, Hewitt-Trussville, and Hoover rounding out the Top 5.
In 6A, defending champion Clay-Chalkville opens at #1 with all 21 votes. Oxford and Gadsden City received votes, but not enough to crack the Top 10. The Yellow Jackets open Week 0 at home hosting McAdory.
UMS-Wright got the #1 nod in 5A, followed by Vigor, Ramsey, Pleasant Grove, and Alexandria rounding out the Top 5. Leeds drops in at #6 with Guntersville at #7 and Central-Clay-County at #10. Moody and Southside-Gadsden received votes placing them just outside the Top 10.
Class 4A seems to have the biggest discrepancy as to who should be ranked as the #1 team in the state to start the season, with the top six teams all receiving at least one first-place vote. Catholic-Montgomery gets the #1 spot with 8 first-place votes, followed by Handley, Andalusia, Jacksonville, Northside, and Montgomery Academy at 2-6. Oneonta, Etowah, and Anniston round out the Top 10 at 8-10 in that order. Cherokee County fell just outside the Top 10 with 18 votes.
Fyffe returns to 2A and sits atop the poll to begin 2022. Lanett ranks 3rd while B B Comer slots in at #6. Sand Rock received 2 votes-not enough to get them in the Top 10.
Spring Garden drops back to 1A and enters the poll at #2 behind Brantley. Sweet Water, Leroy, and Wadley round out the top 5 and all received at least one first-place vote. Cedar Bluff enters the poll at #10.

A lot of folks talk about a big game, but here's your chance to show everybody who the champ really is with FNN's Game Picker Football League.
New Etowah head football coach Matt Clover certainly isn't taking it easy in his debut game in front of the home crowd at Barney Hood Stadium. Glover and his Blue Devils will play 5A Springville.
The Tigers are coming off a lackluster 2021, finishing 4-6 and placing 6th in 6A-Region 7. They move down to 5A and over to Region 6 this fall where the road to the playoffs will not be an easy one. Springville will have to compete against the likes of Alexandria, Leeds, Moody, Lincoln, and Southside-Gadsden for one of the four spots. Coach Jon Clements begins his second season at the helm of the Tigers.
Glover got a late start at Etowah with both Basketball and Baseball playing deep into each season respectively. He has some good talent to work with, featuring All-State WR Omareon Finch. The Blue Devils are coming off a 6-4 2021 that found Etowah 3rd in the region, behind Oneonta and Good Hope. They exited the playoffs after a first-round 31-14 loss at Priceville. Etowah remains in Region 6 this fall but will face some new blood in Cherokee County, Fultondale, and Ashville.
FNN's Game of the Week will come to your TV or smart device starting at 6:30 PM with our Countdown to Kickoff. James Hardy and Coach Eddie Bullock will be back in the booth for the play-by-play and color analysis once again this season.
You can watch the game on all of the network's usual platforms including the FNN 24/7 Channel here at FNNNetwork.com. You'll find FNN for your TV on any Roku, Amazon Firestick, and new for 2022 Apple TV device. The game will also be streamed on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.
