The Escambia Academy Cougar Football team are very excited about the 2016 football season. This year the Cougars will move into a new classification and have many new faces on the schedule. The Cougars will be back to participating in Class AA, where we have spent the majority of our lifespan as a school. We are excited because we get to compete against our old friends from Grove Hill (Clarke Prep) and Jackson Academy. Last season Escambia finished with a 7-5 record, astonishing all 5 teams made it to at least the AISA semi-finals. We had a finalists for Player of the year and had several all state players. We also had 4 all-stars play in the East-West all-star game. The 2015 senior class finished with the most wins in school history over their high school careers (28-9).
This year’s team has many goals and plans, but will be challenged by a decorated schedule. We will play teams from four different states including a former state champion from Florida and a 2015 runner up from Mississippi. We will open on August 12 at Cramton Bowl in Montgomery. We hope you will come out and watch our exciting team this year in its quest for a state championship!
