Class 3A, Region 6 Championship up for grabs as Piedmont heads to Walter Wellborn

ANNISTON, Ala. (WBRC) - Sideline is headed to Walter Wellborn on Friday night for our Sideline Game of the Week as the 8-1 Panthers host undefeated Piedmont.

Piedmont, who has won four straight region championships, can lock up another with a win over Walter Wellborn Friday night.

“That’s the goal. That’s the expectation here at Piedmont is to win championships, so that’s a big goal and this game is big for us,” said Piedmont wide receiver Silas Thompson.

The Bulldogs beat the Panthers last year 54-27, but Walter Wellborn leads the all-time series 14-12. Although the two teams haven’t played every year, Walter Wellborn’s last victory over Piedmont was in 1971.

Sideline begins Friday after the World Series game featuring the Nationals and Astros.
