FYFFE, Ala.—For the third consecutive year the Fyffe Red Devils will compete in the semifinals of the AHSAA Class 2A State Playoffs. The Red Devils face the Randolph County Tigers (13-0) at 7:30 p.m. at Fyffe tonight. The defending 2A State Champions came from behind last week to defeat Ranburne 24-20 in dramatic fashion in the final seconds of the the 4th quarter in the AHSAA football quarterfinals of the state playoffs.

Fyffe will have their hands full in tonight’s 2A semifinal showdown. Randolph County has an explosive offense and have proven they can put the ball in the endzone. The Tigers have scored 175 points in the first three rounds of the 2A playoffs, posting score of 70-7, 56-27 in rounds one and two, and 49-28 in last week’s victory over Cleveland High School. The Tiger offense is led by quarterback John Mark Prestige who averages 130 yards in the air and has racked up a total of 1397 yards and 16 touchdowns this season. The Randolph County offense averages 44 points per game, giving up only 18 points on defense.

But the Red Devils have impressive numbers of their own. They have a record of 40-2 over the past three years. The Red Devil offense is led by Dilan Kilpatrick who has racked up 2,500 yards and 34 touchdowns. The Fyffe offense averages 39 points per game while giving up only 10 points per game on defense. The 2A semifinal matchup is guaranteed to produce an exciting game from two explosive, championship-caliber teams. The winner of tonight’s game will advance to the 2015 2A State Championship game next week at Bryant Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
