ALABASTER, Ala. (WBRC) - We are just a few weeks away from football kicking off in Alabama and the return of Sideline.

Teams from across the state met up at the Thompson High School Performing Arts Center on Monday and Tuesday to talk about the upcoming season. Class 5A’s Selma and Beauregard will tee it up in the first of two games at the 2023 AHSAA Kickoff Classic in Montgomery on Thursday, Aug. 24, followed by Class 7A’s Opelika and defending champs Thompson kicking off Friday night, Aug. 25.

This season features some new head coaches like Woodlawn’s Clarence Williams, where other teams like Ramsay will look to repeat as champs.

“I’d be contradicting myself for the opportunity to repeat,” Ramsay defensive coordinator Richard Bevill said. “I can’t remember the last time it happened in 5A. And we’re looking to seize that moment and we’re excited, just excited.”

The official fall season with practices begins Aug. 7.
