Tigers and Rebels moved to Friday nightPublished 10:32am Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Due to the threat of inclement weather from the steadily approaching Hurricane Isaac, the annual Dadeville High School vs. Reeltown High School football game has been moved to this coming Friday night at 7 p.m. at Tiger Stadium in Dadeville.
Tropical storm Isaac is expected to bring considerable rain and winds into the local area throughout today and tomorrow and could affect both game play and overall attendance for the event, which is annually the biggest for each school.
Dadeville comes into the game ranked No. 3 in Class 4A after a third round loss in the state playoffs to the Mobile private school power UMS-Wright.
The Tigers are also in a new region of Class 4A this season that features 2011 Class 4A state champion Handley High School and the newly formed Central-Clay High School, which is the result of the closing of powerhouses Clay County and Lineville High Schools.
Reeltown enters their season ranked No. 6 in Class 2A and lost in the second round of the state playoffs to Tanner High School in north Alabama.
Dadeville and Reeltown are set to kick off the season Friday night at Tiger Stadium in Dadeville at 7 p.m.
