Gex Billups has been named the head football coach and Cassidy Murphy has been named the athletic director of Escambia Academy athletics.


Escambia Academy is celebrating its second state title in school history after knocking off top-ranked Autauga Academy in the 2017 AISA Class 2A state championship in Veterans Memorial Stadium at Troy University. This was the second championship title in school history. In 2014, EA topped Bessemer Academy to win the 3A title.

The Cougars will be back to participate 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.

2016 season Escambia finished with 8-5 record, losing to Autauga Academy in the AISA AA Championship game on November 18th 2016.

2015 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).

2014 season Escambia Academy won the AISA Class AAA state championship on November 21st 2014 with a 35-28 defeat of Bessemer Academy at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Troy, AL.  It was the first football state championship ever for the school just outside Atmore — in fact, it was the first final game appearance ever for the Cougars.
