The powerful presentation of a video made the announcement for Robert E. Lee High star Henry Ruggs, III on Wednesday, but there were two separate endings filmed because he couldn’t choose between Alabama and Florida State.

The video conveyed the loss Ruggs felt last March as a junior when senior Rod Scott, a teammate on the Generals’ basketball team, was killed in an automobile accident on the way to the state basketball tournament in Birmingham. It depicts Ruggs working out in the weight room and on the football field, along with clips of him visiting his friends’ graveside.

City and county officials who announced in September their plans to move the high school basketball regionals to Garrett Coliseum have now reneged on their promise just weeks before the event.

Coliseum workers who spent thousands of dollars in preparation for the weeklong high school event at the state-owned facility are left to ponder what politics were served by moving the event back to Alabama State University, an organization that has lost – and now regained – the regionals on two separate occasions.

Work continues on Garrett Coliseum in preparation for the upcoming Alabama High School Athletic Association Central Regionals, even as a regular-season basketball tournament originally slated for the facility has now been rescheduled for Faulkner University.
