Tallassee’s football season didn’t end exactly the way the Tigers wanted it to as they missed out on the postseason. But they still had several standout athletes and a pair of those were named to the Alabama Sports Writers Association All-State teams, which were released Sunday.

Although Reeltown senior Eric Shaw has been committed to South Carolina for several months now, it became official last week as he signed his National Letter of Intent alongside classmate Cameron Faison, who will continue his football career at Dodge City (Kansas) Community College.

While a large part of the greater metropolitan Reeltown community had thoughts of battered hedges and shiny blue trophies potentially hoisted high above, a few were focused on matters of the mat in a Thursday night tilt in Eclectic.

The focus around Reeltown for the last several weeks has been the football team’s run to the state championship. Despite that, though, there are still more sports to be played and the basketball show must go on.

It was clear Reeltown’s football team was a bit shell-shocked to start the AHSAA Class 2A Football Championship on Friday afternoon. The Rebels made uncharacteristic mistakes and spotted Fyffe 20 points within the first few minutes of the game.

Less than five minutes into Friday’s AHSAA 2A Football Championship, Reeltown had more turnovers than offensive yards and Fyffe had already jumped out to a 20-0 lead. The Rebels never recovered as Fyffe’s defense locked down the rest of the day and rolled to a 56-7 victory to grab its second…

Last week it was hard to pinpoint which play was the most important for Reeltown in its second-round playoff victory. This week, it’s nearly impossible to pick just one player who stood out for the Rebels as they downed G.W. Long, 41-22, in the AHSAA Class 2A football quarterfinals.

It's time for the second round of the football playoffs so Caleb and Lizi preview each local game including Wetumpka's rematch with Spanish Fort (14:56) and Reeltown's long trip to J.U. Blacksher (23:12).

It's time to wrap up the regular season as Caleb and Lizi quickly discuss the big coaching news out of Dadeville last week (5:48) before diving into the Game of the Week between Tallassee and Elmore County (9:00).

Had Reeltown won last week in its regular-season football finale, Rebel coach Matt Johnson likely would’ve wanted to carry that momentum straight into the playoffs.

In just its third season as a volleyball program, Reeltown had a great shot of advancing to the Class 2A South Super Regionals. The Rebels put together their best regular season to date and wrapped up the No. 2 seed in Class 2A Area 8.

For a team that talks about not getting complacent, it certainly didn’t let that happen Friday night as the Reeltown Rebels beat the Vincent Yellow Jackets, 42-6, in a dominant defensive showing to complete its undefeated run in Class 2A Region 4.

Despite Vincent boasting just two wins on the season, Reeltown’s football team can throw that record out. The Yellow Jackets seem to have found their stride, winning their last two in a row, and their new identity could pose problems for Reeltown, which is hunting down an undefeated record i…

When an undefeated team goes against a winless one it’s easy to predict the outcome. The Reeltown Rebels defeated the Central Coosa Cougars 58-0 Friday night in a class 2A Region 4 showdown by taking advantage of opportunities and playing like they were against a bigger opponent.
