The Friday night lights never shine brighter than when a state championship is on the line and several Tide commits showed they were ready to shine this week.
Alabama’s 5-Star quarterback commit, Bryce Young, finished the night with eight touchdowns in a 63-23 Mater Dei win. One was on the ground and the other seven came via his impressive arm. This outing pushed Young’s season total to 53.
Not to be out done, Kristian Story, the Tide’s 4-Star athlete commit, capped off a 49-6 Lanett win with a five-touchdown performance. Story now has 160 career total touchdowns. The Lanett product is one touchdown away from tying the Alabama High School career total touchdown record.
4-Star running back, Kyle Edwards, powered in five rushing touchdowns to lead Destrehan to a 48-34 win to advance to the second round.
