Week 5: Cullman Area Football Games

Our GAME OF THE WEEK features the Fairview Aggies on the road facing the Mortimer Jordan Blue Devils at Jimmie Trotter Field in Kimberly.

The Aggies are coached by George Redding, Jr.; the Blue Devils are led by Dustan Goode.

MORTIMER JORDAN is a formidable Region 6 foe for the Aggies. The Blue Devils come into this game with three victories against only one defeat. Their margins of victory have been by an average of almost 27 points per game. Their only loss was in Week 2 when they traveled to Pelham to be handed a distasteful 15-30 defeat.

The Blue Devils were Region Champions last year; they will be a challenging out for the Aggies.

Mortimer Jordan is ranked #17 statewide in Class 5A.

FAIRVIEW has had two open dates and played only two games in the first four weeks of the season. They looked spectacular in a 42-7 punishing at East Lawrence on September 1st. Last week, they lost a close one at home against Corner 14-21.

The Aggies are woefully overdue for a Region championship having last won the trophy in 1998.

Another game we will be watching closely is the CULLMAN Bearcats at home in Class 6A against the unranked, yet nonetheless dangerous FORT PAYNE Wildcats. After a back-down-to-earth loss last week in Oxford, the Bearcats are at 2-2 with another tough task ahead against the undefeated and Region 7 leading Wildcats.

Our Cullman High School sports specialist – Jamie Speakman – will be covering that game action from Oliver Woodard Stadium.

Our Aggies field coverage crew will consist of Tim Collins who will be broadcasting live footage of the game (assuming broadband connection in far northern Jefferson County is functional).
