Chambers Academy aiming for school’s first AISA football championship

One more win.

That’s all that stands between Chambers Academy out of LaFayette, Alabama and the school’s first ever state championship in the sport of football.

It all ends this Friday when the Rebels play in the AISA Class A state championship game as they look to win a title and complete a perfect season. It’s a little bit of revenge for the Rebels who came up short in the title game a year ago.

"Last year was a very tough loss and the whole community wants it, the whole team wants it, and I believe we have a great chance," said Mateo Valdez. "We’re gonna do everything we can to make it."

They’ve had a lot of success so far during their playoff run, outscoring their opponents 103-30 in just two games, but now is when it all matters. The Rebels have made it to the title game four other times but have yet to bring back that piece of hardware.

"To cap off an undefeated season with a state title, it’ll be a really special accomplishment for us, the team, the coaches, the school, and the community," said quarterback Malik Lyons.

"They’re reaping the benefits of the hard work that they’ve put in. I’m proud to be a part of it," said head coach Jason Allen. "It is our first undefeated season, 10-0, and now we’re looking to make it our first undefeated season with a state championship."

The Rebels will take on Marengo in the title game. Kick-off is set for 1/12 CT down at Troy University.
