Defense is young but talented

At first glance, 2010 was a wasted year for Alcovy football. What positive could possibly come out of a 1-9 season? Then 2011 came around and things turned around in a hurry. The reasons are many. But at the head of Alcovy's transformation are very much those struggles the Tigers went through - rather what came out of them.

Tigers can claim their first region championship, earn No. 1 seed

Who would have thought?

Until 2008, football games at Sharp Stadium in November were almost always meaningless. Save for the occasional season finale that decided Newton, then later Eastside's playoff fate, Sharp Stadium was usually a ghost town that late in the year. Then Eastside started wining region championships and all of a sudden, football games in Covington in November, specifically playoff games, have become common place.
