Austin, Decatur square off Friday night

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

There’s a cross town rivalry in Decatur Friday night. It’s a River City rivalry as the Austin Black Bears take on the Decatur Red Raiders at Ogle Stadium.

A packed house will be in attendance. Decatur Head Coach Jere Adcock understands how big a game this is for the community.

“Boys over here date girls over there,” Adcock said during practice Wednesday. “Girls over there, date boys over here. They go to church together. We got some over at Bible study together. It's a community thing. You want to get after each other's rear end, and you want to win. Biggest crowd to assemble in Decatur will be here Friday night.”

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
