The head coach will be Trent Taylor from Straughn High School in Covington County.

Other coaches on staff include Adam Winegarden of Fairhope, Phil Lazenby of Bayside Academy, Randy Ragsdale of Trinity Presbyterian, Mike Battles Jr., of Tallassee, Norman Dean of Elmore County and Michael Summers of Alabama Christian, who will serve as administrative coach.

The North squad coach is Keith Etheredge of Leeds. It’s interesting to note that Leeds defeated Straughn in the state semifinals last fall.

The South squad leads the North 29-23-2 in the series, which began in 1948.
