Alabama’s every two-year re-classification is out and there are some interesting teams on the move, including three 2019 state champs moving up to a new classification.
Three-time Class 4A champ UMS-Wright, which finished No. 10 in this year’s High School Football America Alabama Top 10, will play in in 5A next year. The Bulldogs are currently on a 33-game win streak.
Two-time defending 2A champ Fyffe is moving up to Class 3A next year. Lanett will move-up to 2A for the next two years after winning the 1A title in 2019. In 2017, Lanett won the 2A state title.
The state’s largest classification (7A) will have three new teams.
2015 7A champ McGill-Toolen will fall to Class 6A for the next two years. The Yellow Jackets played in three straight 7A title games from 2015 through 2017. Also moving down are Mountain Brook and Montgomery-Lee.
Replacing those three in 7A are former 6A’ers Albertville, Daphne and Dothan.
