Bearcats, Tigers renew rivalry Friday night

(WAFF) -

Two Teams. Two Rivals. Game one of their respective seasons. It doesn't get any better than the Bearcats and Tigers in north Alabama.

"It's gonna be a packed house,” Hartselle Head Coach Bob Godsey said on Wednesday. “Emotions will be high, you just can't ask for more in a high school rivalry.”

"I'm proud of being in it for such a long time,” said Cullman Head Coach Mark Britton. “Our communities are very similar, our programs are very similar, and our games are always close.”

Hartselle escaped with a 14-13 victory at Cullman last season. Friday's game will all but likely be just as close. Ninety-four games have been played in this rivalry. The series is 45-45-4.

“I just can't wait to strap up and play hard,” said Cullman offensive lineman Hunter Brannon. “This rivalry has been played, 20, 40 years since 1940-something, and I just can’t wait to play, especially at their place.”

“We've really had more intensity and urgency about what we were doing,” said Hartselle Linebacker Conner Landers. “We've got a lot accomplished, and we'll be ready.”
