Oakman looks to snap Fyffe winning streak
Entering the final week of the regular season, Oakman was in a three-way tie for second place in region play. After a series of tiebreakers, the Wildcats ended up in fourth place in the region, placing them on the road in the opening round of the AHSAA playoffs against No. 1 Fyffe.
It's a tough opening round draw for the Wildcats, to say the least.
Fyffe is undefeated and has won back-to-back state championships. The Red Devils are currently on the longest winning streak in the AHSAA, a forty-game streak that dates back to August 31, 2018.
The Red Devils are the real deal on both sides of the ball, touting the best offense and defense in 3A football.
On offense, the Red Devils average 42 points per game. Their defense allows a mere 4.5 after pitching five shut-outs this season.
The two teams have met once on the gridiron with the Wildcats winning 32-13 in 1995.
Kickoff is set for 7pm Friday night at Paul Benefield Stadium in Fyffe.
