Demopolis drops Central-Clay to move to quarterfinals

11-17-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ Malaki Simpson hits a field goal from the hold of Andrew Patterson to give the Tigers their first points in their victory over Clay Central.

11-17-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ Demetrius Davis (1) celebrates with Malaki Simpson (89) after Simpson hit a field goal to give the Tigers their first points of the game in their victory over Clay Central.

Demopolis relied on its defense at virtually every turn Friday night to frustrate Central-Clay County and punch its ticket to the Class 5A quarterfinals. Demopolis downed the Volunteers 17-6 to set up a third round date with Vigor High next week.

The Tigers found themselves with their backs proverbially against the wall early as the Volunteers had the ball on the Demopolis 1. As Cameron Peoples went over the top for an attempted touchdown, the Tigers knocked the ball out and Derrick Birl pounced on it, staving the threat.

“It was huge. I think we lost our leverage a couple of times early. They got a big run early,” Demopolis coach Brian Seymore said. “Our kids got a little penetration right there. I think Fred actually got his hand on the ball and knocked it loose. We got a fumble recovery right there and that got our defense loosened up. Huge play. Probably the play of the game.”

The Volunteers scarcely threatened again. Demopolis found some offensive mojo in the second quarter when Andrew Patterson found Tyquan Alston for a 31-yard gain to help set up a 25-yard field goal by Malaki Simpson, the first of the freshman kicker’s career.

“I saw him in warmups and he was hitting the ball real well,” Seymore said. “For him to step up and knock that thing through showed a lot of character on his part. We needed some points.”

The Tigers found the end zone for the first time on a remarkable catch and run from A.J. Jackson with 2:10 remaining in the first half. The senior tailback hauled in a screen pass and reversed field multiple times to complete the 59-yard touchdown play and put the Tigers up 10-0.

11-17-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ A.J. Jackson breaks free on a touchdown run in the first half of the Tigers’ victory over Clay Central.

“(Offensive coordinator Matt) Mellown and the offensive staff made a good call right there,” Seymore said. “When you get a good athlete like A.J. in the open field, he has the ability to make a lot of people miss and also has the ability to outrun people.”

Demopolis broke it open early in the fourth quarter when Patterson threw over the top down the left side and dropped it right into the arms of Alston, who sprinted the rest of the way to complete a 90-yard touchdown strike.

“I caught it. I almost went out of bounds. When I caught it, all I could remember was ‘Don’t get caught. Don’t get caught.’ It has happened every time,” Alston, who got his first career touchdown on the play, said in allusion to the multiple plays this season where he has been drug down just feet from the goal line. “I was looking back trying to make sure I didn’t get caught.”

“We give him a lot of crap about getting caught. We call him slow and everything,” Patterson joked. “But he was not getting caught tonight. He turned on those jets and he was gone.”

The play effectively put the game out of reach for Central-Clay.

“It started with the protection. Patty threw a strike. He hit him right in the numbers right there,” Seyomre said. “Tyquan looked it in. He just turned on the jets and tight-roped the sideline right there. That was probably the nail in the coffin right there.”

Alston finished with three receptions for 132 yards. Patterson finished 10 of 19 for 241 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

The Tigers (10-2) travel to Prichard next week to face Vigor in the third round.

Demopolis sacks Williamson to move to Class 5A second round

11-9-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ Russ Logan wraps up Williamson’s quarterback for a sack during the Tigers’ first round win over the Lions.

In a showcase of standout defenses, Demopolis made the necessary offensive adjustments to pull out a 21-0 playoff win over Williamson Thursday. The teams battled to a 0-0 stalemate by halftime that saw 59 total yards for Demopolis against 58 for Williamson. The Tigers turned the tables during their first drive of the second half on one of the most nondescript of plays.

11-9-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ Fred Haywood sacks Williamson’s quarterback near the Lions’ own end zone during the Tigers’ first round win over the Lions.

Facing a third and five in their own territory, Demopolis got a boost when senior quarterback Andrew Patterson called his own number. Patterson pulled the ball, ran away from pressure toward the Williamson sideline and dove for the stick marking the line to gain. The 5-yard sprint gave Demopolis a first down and extended a drive that resulted in the first points of the game.

“That might’ve been the biggest play of the game,” Demopolis coach Brian Seymore said. “We ran our sprint pass to the left and they did a good job in coverage. He pulled it down and did a good job with it and got us a big first down.”

A.J. Jackson culminated the effort when momentarily slipped on a rushing attempt before pivoting off his free hand to go around the right end for a 19-yard touchdown sprint.

11-9-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ A.J. Jackson heads to the end zone for the game deciding score during the Tigers’ first round win over the Williamson Lions.

“It was back and forth. The defense dominated the first half. I thought in the first half, we played not to lose instead of playing to win. I challenged them to go out there and do what we do. I thought they responded in a big way. We got the big run from A.J. and after that I felt like the momentum swung our way,” Seymore said. “Our kids take a lot of pride in doing the little things right. We stayed on blocks and our backs ran the ball physical. One thing led to another and it was a domino effect. Our guys picked up the momentum and kind of ran with it.”

Demopolis added to the lead in the fourth quarter when Jackson ran for a 7-yard touchdown. The final score came when Patterson went off play-action and hit DeDe Davis over the top for a 34-yard touchdown pass.

Demopolis finished with 269 yards of total offense while Williamson had 100 yards. Jackson paced the Tigers with 105 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. Antonio Besteder ran the ball 15 times for 75 yards.

The Demopolis defense got after Williamson most of the night, tallying four sacks on the evening. Tavion Brown had a pair of sacks while Fred Haywood and Russ Logan had one apiece. Aron Collier intercepted a pass for the Tigers.

The win moves Demopolis to 9-2 and advances the squad to the second round of the Class 5A state playoffs where it will host the winner of Central Clay County and Charles Henderson. The victory also marks the first playoff win of Seymore’s career.

“To me it’s special because I’ve been so close many times. I’ve had a lot of close losses and so many overtime losses. But the credit goes back to the coaches and the players,” Seymore said. “It was special to get that Gatorade bath. I just hope we can keep the momentum going.”

UWA men’s soccer No. 2 seed in South Regional

INDIANAPOLIS – After winning the Gulf South Conference regular season and tournament championships, the West Alabama Tigers are not done hunting for accolades after being selected as the No. 2 seed in NCAA South Regional.

UWA (15-2-1) will travel to face the No. 3 seeded Tampa Spartans in Tampa, Fla. on Sunday, Nov. 12 starting at 12 p.m. locally. The Spartans come in after defeating Rollins 2-1 in the Sunshine State Conference Tournament Championship to earn an automatic bid.

“Delighted to be here at this stage at the season and still be playing shows that you’ve had a successful year in the toughest region in the nation,” said Head coach Matthew Thorne. “We’re confident we compete with anyone and I look forward battling Tampa. I’m proud of these guys for what they’ve done so far, but we’ve got a lot more to do this season.”

Despite being the higher seed, The Tigers will have to win in Tampa’s home stadium. However, Thorne is proud of reaching the post-season and reaching new highest for UWA Men’s Soccer.

“The No. 2 seed is great to see. It shows how far we’ve come as a program,” said Thorne. “It’s the highest seed we’ve ever had and we’re looking forward to going down to Tampa and pusing forward with the win.”

Palm Beach Atlantic earned the top seed and will face No. 4 seed Lynn on this side of the regional bracket.

Two to six teams were selected from each of the eight regions.  Teams from the same region will be paired for first- and/or second-round competition, which will be conducted November 9-12 on campus sites.  Third-round/quarterfinals will be held on campus sites and completed by November 19. The semifinals and final will be played November 30 and December 2 at Children’s Mercy Victory Field at Swope Soccer Village in Kansas City, Missouri, hosted by Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association, Rockhurst University and Kansas City Sports Commission.

Demopolis first round playoff game set for Thursday, Nov. 9

9-22-2017 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis RB A.J. Jackson (4) runs between the blocks of Matt Dollar (62) and Chris Williams (right) during the Tigers’ Homecoming win over the Calera Eagles.

Demopolis High School will play its first round playoff game on Thursday, Nov. 9 rather than the Friday night time slot that traditionally houses such tilts.

“I just think it’s an opportunity to get out there a little quicker and go out there and play,” Demopolis coach Brian Seymore said of the move. “Once you get through 10 weeks of football, I think our kids are eager to get out there again.”

The Thursday date will allow Demopolis to maintain more of a normal routine and avoid any of the complications that might accompany a Friday game given that Nov. 10 is a holiday for Demopolis High School.

“Both administrations talked and I thought it was a good fit with Friday being Veteran’s Day for us,” Seymore said. “I like to keep our kids in a routine. That was the main thing. The option they gave us to move to Thursday and we took advantage of it.”

Demopolis, the Class 5A, Region 3 champion, is set to play host to Class 5A, Region 1 No. 4 seed Williamson in the first round.

“They’re very athletic on both sides of the ball. They’ve got two Division I players that are both committed to South Alabama. They’ve got a lot of speed. They don’t have the depth I think. We’ll try to take advantage of the depth. They only have like 30 players with various kids playing both ways. They’re a very well coached team,” Seymore said of the Lions. “They’re very, very good defensively. We’ve given up 59 points, they’ve given up 58 points this year. They’ve got a quality defense.”

Demopolis skunks Jemison to wrap Region 3 play

10-27-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis RB A.J. Jackson stretches for the Tigers’ first touchdown of the night against Jemison.

Demopolis wrapped up an unbeaten Class 5A, Region 3 schedule Friday with a 48-7 victory over Jemison. The win marked the 26th consecutive region victory for Demopolis.

10-27-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ Derrick Birl breaks up a pass against Jemison.

“I think that was the goal for all the kids. You definitely want to be the No. 1 seed and have the ability to host a first round playoff game, but I’m definitely glad for those seniors to be able to go unbeaten in region,” Demopolis coach Brian Seymore said.

Deompolis hung 20 points on the board in the first quarter of play. A.J. Jackson scored on a 12-yard touchdown run with 8:34 to go in the first quarter. Antonio Besteder later ran for an 8-yard score to stretch the lead to 13-0. On the final play of the opening quarter, Jackson ran for an 88-yard touchdown and moved the lead to 20-0.

DeDe Davis caught an 83-yard touchdown pass in the second before Besteder added a 24-yard scoring run. The Tigers led 34-0 at half.

Brandon Simmons turned a jailbreak screen into a 46-yard touchdown pass in the third. Davis added a 19-yard touchdown run to cap the Demopolis scoring and move the lead to 48-0.

Adrian Jackson scored on a 16-yard run with 3:01 left in the game to set the final margin.

Demopolis amassed 512 yards of total offense in the game. Jackson rushed 11 times for 164 yards. Besteder ran for 100 yards on 15 carries. Davis had 134 yards from scrimmage.

10-27-17 — Demopolis, Ala. — Demopolis’ Demetrius Davis breaks free on an 83-yard touchdown run against Jemison.

Jackson defeated Citronelle 31-0 in Class 5A, Region 1 Friday, setting Demopolis up with a first round playoff matchup against Williamson, who finishes as the No. 4 seed in Region 1.

“You always look a little further down the road for possible playoff matchups. I think that’s our mindset for our players and our coaches,” Seymore, whose team travels to Class 7A Auburn next week. “Williamson will be a very athletic team. Dedric Sumter is the head football coach there and he has done a tremendous job there. They have a lot of skilled athletes and they are very multiple on both sides of the ball. They’re very good on defense and they play an attacking style. I think our kids will be prepared and it’s a great opportunity for our program. We’ll put our focus on Auburn and look at that in a couple of weeks. The Auburn game has the opportunity to give us that same kind of atmosphere.”

Demopolis proves relentless in skunking of Class 7A Enterprise

Demopolis dominated from pillar to post Friday night to pick up its first win in program history over a Class 7A team. The Tigers ran for 341 yards on the night to anchor a 33-7 victory over Enterprise.

“We knew we could compete with those guys. We knew we had to play with a total team effort against a team of that caliber,” Demopolis coach Brian Seymore said.

Demopolis had scoring drives of 99, 95, 86, and 79 yards in the game. The Tigers’ first touchdown punctuated an eight-play, 95-yard drive that was highlighted by a 47-yard A.J. Jackson sprint Antonio Besteder finished it off with a 10-yard touchdown run with 3:16 remaining in the opening frame to make it 6-0.

“I think it was more of a physical challenge on both sides of the ball. Our offensive line played with intensity. Our backs, I can’t say enough about them and the physical nature they play with,” Seymore said. “Andrew (Patterson) threw it well. He ran the offense. He had a couple of big runs tonight.”

Demopolis got the ball back with 14 seconds left in the opening quarter, taking over on its own 1 yard line following a brilliant Enterprise punt. Undaunted, the Tigers proceeded to pound the ball with a 13-play drive that covered 99 yards and resulted in a five-yard A.J. Jackson touchdown run. Demopolis executed 10 run plays on the drive and mixed in a pair of 11-yard passes to Tyler Jones as well as a 12-yard strike to DeDe Davis.

Up 13-0, Demopolis attempted a surprise onside kick that landed in Wildcat hands and set Enterprise up at the Tiger 42. Chance Warren starred on the drive, hauling in a 25-yard pass to set up a goal-to-go scenario. Warren shifted to the quarterback spot in the wildcat formation to score on a three-yard touchdown run and cut the deficit to 13-7.

When Enterprise’s Hunter Peacock sniffed out a bubble screen and picked off a Demopolis pass on the ensuing possession, the Wildcats appeared poised to take it in from 29 yards out and wrest away the lead. Enterprise hit Warren for a 17-yard strike to set up a goal-to-go situation from the Demopolis 8. A negative run play, two incomplete passes and a false start turned the favorable circumstance into a 4th and goal from the Tiger 15. Enterprise then missed a 32-yard field goal attempt and never threatened again in the game.

“That goes back to our coaches. That goes back to how we prepare each day. We work three days in the weight room. We take a lot of pride in that. We practice physical each week,” Seymore said of his team’s effort. “If you want to be one of the high echelon teams, you have to play physical. Our coaches coach like that daily and I think that’s the key to us playing at a high level.”

Demopolis added a 7-yard scoring run from Besteder in the third quarter. Besteder scored on a 15-yard run in the fourth while Jackson ran it in from 22 yards out for the capper. The Demopolis defense showed itself equally as well, holding Enterprise to 107 yards of total offense including -7 yards in the entire second half.

“I think we played assignment football. Our kids understand how important it is to play defense. As many times as we can get the ball back to our offense, that’s more chances to score,” Seymore said. “They had a very talented receiver, and we put emphasis on knowing where he was at. In the second half, we pretty much shut him down. That’s where you win the big games on those defenses.”

Demopolis amassed 441 yards of total offense, anchored by 341 yards rushing. Jackson finished with 165 yards on 20 carries while Besteder ran for 129 yards on 23 carries. Roderick Gaines and C.J. Williams each picked off a pass for the Demopolis defense.

Demopolis (6-1, 5-0) hosts Jemison next Friday night for the final Class 5A, Region 3 contest of the season. The Tigers are set to travel to Auburn Nov. 3.

UWA overcomes deficit for win over nationally-ranked West Georgia

Tra Fletcher scores on a 34-yard pass from Harry Satterwhite with 3:22 to play Saturday night, pushing UWA over West Georgia.

LIVINGSTON, Ala. – Harry Satterwhite and Tra Fletcherconnected on a 34-yard pass and run with 3:22 left to play, completing a 34-31 come-from-behind West Alabama victory over West Georgia in a battle of two nationally-ranked teams Saturday at Tiger Stadium.

Ranked 15th in the D2Football poll and 23rd in the AFCA poll, West Alabama extended its winning streak to five games by beating a ranked opponent for the third time in four weeks. The Tigers are 6-1 overall and 5-0 in Gulf South Conference play.

West Georgia, ranked 17th and 22nd, had its winning streak snapped at three games, dropping to 5-2 and 2-2. Both Wolves losses have come on the road to nationally-ranked opponents.

When Fletcher weaved his way into the north endzone with the game winner, it marked the only time West Alabama led in the game. West Georgia led 28-17 at the half, but the Tiger defense limited the GSC’s top total offensive team to just three points in the final 30 minutes.

“That was my first game-winner,” Fletcher said. “They play wasn’t intended for me, but Harry was scrambling so I came back to the ball and just made a play.”

West Alabama was forced to kick off from its own 20-yard line following Fletcher’s game-winner due to an excessive celebration penalty. The Wolves drove to the UWA 23 before Jordan Jones blocked a 31-yard field goal attempts Trey Wiggins, but UWG was called for delay of game and handed another play to either tie or take the lead.

The Wolves opted to go for it on fourth-and-11 from the Tiger 28 and Candler’s pass was picked off by Tiger linebacker Khalia Hackett.

With three West Georgia timeouts left, the Tigers were forced to punt, giving West Georgia one last shot from its own 16 with three seconds to play. Willie Candler completed a 28-yard pass to Shannon Smith as time expired.

“We executed and did just enough to win, but we also did just enough to lose,” UWA head coach Brett Gilliland said. “I am proud of our defense, especially in the second half to hold a great West Georgia offense to just three points.

“We challenged our players about our energy and intensity at the half,” Gilliland said. “It was an emotional game with a lot of ups and downs.”

UWA’s 34 points is the most given up by West Georgia this season. The Wolves came into the game as the top scoring defense in the GSC, allowing just 14.2 points per game.

Satterwhite celebrated his 22nd birthday by completing 29-of-42 for 308 yards and three touchdowns. He was intercepted once. Candler was 13-of-21 for 212 yards, one TD and one interception.

“We had some mistakes, but that’s a really good football team,” Satterwhite said. “We just try to control what we can control and our playmakers made plays at the end. If we can get the ball to those guys in space, they can make plays.”

In addition to the game-winner to Fletcher, Satterwhite also hooked up with Corey Davis for scoring tosses of 26 and 16 yards. Lakendric Thomas scored on a 3-yard run, while Colin Douglas made field goals from 27 and 36 yards to complete UWA scoring.

“West Georgia has some great defensive backs,” Davis said. “It was a rollercoaster ride, but we kept the faith, played as a team and came out with the victory.”

The game began with a penalty and points for West Georgia. The Wolves were penalized 15 yards for an unsportsmanlike conduct during warmups, but Devontae Jackson returned the opening kickoff from his own endzone to spot the Wolves a 7-0 lead.

Jackson scored again in the first quarter on a 77-yard run and Candler connected with Mikell Lands-Davis to give West Georgia a 21-14 lead after one quarter, marking the most points UWA had allowed in the first period this season.

Candler used his legs to score again before the half on a 6-yard run with 8:25 to play in the second quarter. It would be the final time West Georgia visited the endzone. UWA outscored the Wolves 17-3 in the final 30 minutes.

Jackson led all rushers with 169 yards on 22 carries. He also caught three passes for 59 yards and returned four kickoffs for 145 yards while amassing 373 all-purpose yards.

“Jackson is a really good back. Arm tackling won’t work on him,” Tiger linebacker Terry Samuel said. “We just had to bow our back and be relentless. We knew we had to stop them.”

Davis led all receivers with eight catches for 79 yards, followed by Donta Armstrong with six for 69 yards and Qua Boydwith five for 69 yards. Thomas was the leading rusher for UWA with 62 yards on 15 carries.

Taderion Myhand piled up 12 tackles, nine solo, for West Alabama to lead all tacklers in the game. Samuel added 10 more. Myhand had 1.5 tackles for loss and Samuels two more. Terrence Jones and Michael Williams each recorded a sack for the Tigers. Tevin Madison recovered a fumble.

Cameron Magee had 10 tackles for the Wolves, followed by Korie Rogers with nine. UWG managed just three tackles for loss, with two of those coming on sacks by Deondre Gardenhire and Chad Price.

West Alabama remains in GSC play next week, traveling to Florida Tech (4-3) for a 1 p.m. CDT kickoff in Melbourne. West Georgia stays on the road to face Mississippi College (0-7).

Demopolis steamrolls Dallas County for Region 3 victory

10-6-17 — Plantersville, Ala. — Demopolis’ Demetrius Davis hauls in a 15-yard TD reception from Andrew Patterson during the Tigers’ area win over the Dallas County Hornets.

PLANTERSVILLE – In a game that saw 29 points scored before Dallas County’s offense took the field for the very first time, Demopolis moved one step closer to a Class 5A, Region 3 title. The Tigers waxed the Hornets 59-6 Friday in a contest that ended with a running clock.

Demopolis opened the scoring on a 20-yard touchdown run by A.J. Jackson with 10:39 remaining on the first quarter clock. Jackson added the conversion run to push it to 8-0.

10-6-17 — Plantersville, Ala. — Demopolis’ Tavian Brown (25) and Fred Haywood bring down a Dallas County runner during the Tigers’ region win over the Hornets.

Undaunted, fleet-footed 5-6 senior Calvin Starks scooped the ensuing kickoff on the bounce and bolted 90 yards for a touchdown to cut it to 8-6. Alexander Besteder blocked the extra point attempt to preserve the lead.

“I was happy with the way our offense and the defense played. They played extremely well. I guess the biggest disappointment was probably kickoff,” Demopolis coach Brian Seymore said. “Tonight, we gave up a couple of returns that got over 50. (Starks) is a good little runner. We didn’t do a good job of tackling. We didn’t do a good job of staying in our lanes.”

All illusions of a competitive contest quickly dissipated thereafter. Demopolis hit a 55-yard pass to Tyquan Alston to set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Antonio Besteder. Jackson’s conversion run made it 16-6.

Tyler Hale pounced on a fumble on the ensuing kickoff to put Demopolis in striking distance of an early blowout. Jackson later scored on a run from five yards out to move it to 23-6. Dallas County then sent its offense onto the field for the first time to little avail. Demopolis quickly shut down the Hornets and handed the ball back to Andrew Patterson, who found DeDe Davis in the end zone with 2:20 left in the opening frame to set it at 30-6.

10-6-17 — Plantersville, Ala. — Demopolis’ Alexander Besteder looks for running room during the Tigers’ area win over the Dallas County Hornets.

Things got no better for the Hornets as Alexander Besteder added a 3-yard touchdown run in the second quarter ahead of Antonio Besteder’s 80-yard scoring run. Antonio Besteder than scored on a 16-yard run in the third quarter before Peyton Stevenson punched it in from 10 yards out in the fourth.

“Having the week off to prepare, we added a few more wrinkles here. We’ve got some other stuff we’re working on. I felt like our kids came out of the locker room ready to play,” Seymore said.

Antonio Besteder paced the Tigers with 148 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries. Jackson finished with 86 yards and two scores on eight rushes. Alston caught two passes for 88 yards. Patterson was 8 for 12 passing for 153 yards and a touchdown.

Demopolis amassed 481 yards of total offense while allowing the Hornets to gain only 40 yards.

The Tigers (5-1, 4-0) can clinch the Class 5A, Region 3 title next Friday with a win over Sumter Central.

“We’re looking forward to it. Obviously we’ve got a storm coming in, but we’ll play that by ear,” Seymore said. “I think our kids will come with a workmanlike attitude and go to work, make sure we work on the little things, and try to get better each and every week.”
