The football season is over for all of the Butler and surrounding county teams.

The Fort Dale Eagles were a shining star this season finishing at 9-3 overall and third at 5-2 in the Alabama Independent School Association class 3A.

Two of their losses came at the hands of the State Champions Lee-Scott Rebels of Auburn /Opelika.

The Greenville Tigers had a miserable season this year; finishing 1-9 overall and sixth at 0-5 in the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) class 5A Region 2.

The McKenzie Tigers hit the 50% mark for the season finishing 5-5 overall and sixth in AHSAA 1A Region 2 at 3 – 5.

The other shining star for this year was the Georgiana Panthers who made it to the second round of the AHSAA playoffs but fell to the Leroy Bears 27-13.

The Panthers defense had an incredible seven shutouts on the year finishing 9-3 overall and second in 1A Region 2 at 7-1.

The season continues for the rest of the state so we’ll break it down for you. All the championship games will be played in Tuscaloosa at the University of Alabama’s Bryant Denny Stadium from Dec. 6-8.
