Wilcox Central High School Jaguars (4-5) @ Selma High School Saints ( 3-5)

Coaches: John Moton | Woodrow Lowe, Jr.

Breakdown: Wilcox Central is out of the playoffs and playing for pride and getting ready for basketball season. The Selma High Saints however, have a large question mark surrounding their postseason plans. Depending on a ruling by the AHSAA on an appeal by Sidney Lanier High School, the Saints could be on their way to the playoffs to face Enterprise High School. But for now, their focus is on winning their first home game since Week 3. It’s also their homecoming.
