Trace Bright admits he was a little surprised over the summer of 2017 when he was told his fastball was topping out at 92 miles per hour.

“Last summer, I just made a big jump in pitching,” he said. “I’ve been steadily working on mechanics and working out, but it was just a big natural jump.”

That jump made him one of the better juniors in the state, which earned him selection to the annual Alabama All-Stars Sports Week baseball squad that will play at Riverwalk Stadium on Tuesday, July 17.

It’s been nearly two years since Jeff Foshee agreed to step down from his position as Stanhope Elmore High’s head football coach. 

It’s a decision that continues to haunt him. His phone never rings, at least from those that could pull the strings and hire him. His latest job interview was for the head coaching position at G.W. Carver High. Like the other interviews, Foshee feels comfortable when he leaves the meeting, but it’s short-lived.

Are we nearing the end of the Alabama High School Athletic Association format that allows public and private schools to play together?

As speculation grows concerning the outcome of “St. Paul’s Episcopal School v. the Alabama High School Athletic Association and Steven P. Savarese,” there are those in the private school ranks that have concerns that the time is drawing closer in being excluded from the AHSAA’s general population regardless of how U.S. District Judge William H.
