It's a special episode of ITL this week as Caleb and Lizi are joined by The Daily Home's LaVonte Young to discuss the big games in Class 4A Region 4 this week (20:30).

The Reeltown Rebels came out on fire, forcing a three and out on defense and scoring a 79-yard touchdown run from Cameron Faison on the first play on offense during a high-scoring affair against the Fayetteville Wolves.

Everyone on the outside might be looking at Reeltown’s Week 2 matchup with Fayetteville as a pushover — almost like a practice game as the Rebels get ready to take on LaFayette in a few weeks in what’s expected to be a more meaningful Class 2A Region 4 game.

Elmore County volleyball coach Kim Moncrief and her sister, Reeltown coach Kim Hilyer, both say they want what’s best for their programs. They also battle against each other on the softball field.

Without ever having a conversation together, both coaches — Tallassee’s Katie Rigsby and Reeltown’s Kelli Hilyer — agreed the Tiger-Rebel volleyball affair was pretty close to bowling shoe ugly and left both squad’s skippers with a laundry list of things to improve upon Thursday.

Before the season even started, there were three major season-ending injuries for local teams. Benjamin Russell linebacker Lane Rigby broke his leg and Dadeville’s Josh Taylor and Horseshoe Bend’s Kendall Penwell tore their ACLs.

Last year, Dadeville and Reeltown might as well have not played. The Rebels put up 14 points on Tiger miscues before the Tigers even touched the ball, and from there, it was like Dadeville was already ready to pack it in.

Reeltown lived in the Bullock County backfield during Thursday’s season opener, racking up 14 tackles for a loss as a team on its way to an 18-6 victory. Reeltown’s Eric Shaw made his long-anticipated return to the football field and he made his biggest impact on defense, recording 15 total …

The first year of a new program isn’t expected to be the best, and the second year there’s bound to be a few more growing pains. But in a third year, the players really start to get a feel for the game and their coach and that’s when growth truly happens.

Everyone is good in the offseason. How hard is it to be good when the only person you’re up against is yourself? And most teams look good even going against other teams in OTAs and 7-on-7s, but how much can you really answer when you’re not truly playing football?

Actual football games have finally arrived this week so Caleb Turrentine and Lizi Arbogast are here to preview some of the top games in the area (3:15) while making their predictions for Week 0.

The Reeltown Rebels are tired of hearing about last year. They don’t want to play the “what if” game anymore. They know they could’ve done better and they know they messed up.

As Eric Shaw grabbed the Auburn hat sitting in front of him Thursday, the crowd at Reeltown High School took a collective breath. But it lasted for only a brief second as Shaw quickly put the Auburn hat back down and stood up. He grabbed at his Reeltown T-shirt, taking it off to reveal the S…

It’s hard to believe the season is only two weeks away. I remember when I first put that football countdown on the top of the Outlook sports pages season, there were nearly 80 days left. Now, we’re doing to 14.

Last week I wrote about how student-athletes are putting in work year-round for just a few short months of actual play. I wrote about how important that offseason work was for building team chemistry, getting bigger, stronger and faster and bonding as one unit.
