Alabama high school football team to stop being road warriors

The Asbury High School football team’s nickname is the Rams, but it could also be “Road Warriors” after spending three years of nothing but away football games. That will end this season with the completion of the school’s first-ever football stadium, according to WHNT-TV.

Asbury, which began varsity football in 2016, will play its first home game August 24 when the Rams host Brindlee Mountain.  Aside from its first-ever stadium, Asbury, a small 2A school, will be looking for its first-ever varsity victory after back-to-back 0-10 seasons.
