The Glenwood Gators have had a great season so far, going 10-3 and one step away from the AISA 3A State Championship. The Gators will face off with Bessemer Academy Friday night at Troy University’s Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The Gators have a lot of recent history with Bessemer. The Rebels defeated Glenwood back in September and narrowly defeated the Gators in last year’s 3A Semifinals.
“I thought last year we played a great team, but we came up one yard short against Bessemer. That’s kind of been our motto…one more yard. So we can kind of vindicate ourselves.” said Glenwood head coach Jason Gibson.
