Acklin, who led the Trojans (6-1) with 21 points, credited his coach, Neal Barker, for the everyday focus after practice on shots at the charity stripe.

AHSAA announces new football region alignment
By Todd Thompson
Muscle Shoals will face some traditional rivals and some new foes in the new football realignment announced this morning by the Alabama High School Athletic Association.
The Trojans will be joined in the new Region 8 alignment by Athens, Buckhorn, Columbia, Cullman, Hartselle, Decatur and Hazel Green. The region has six teams – including Muscle Shoals – that played in Region 7 last season.
Buckhorn and Hazel Green were moved into the new Region 8 lineup.
“The region really stays the same for us with the exception of the two new teams,” said Muscle Shoals head football coach Scott Basden. “The biggest change for us with the adding of two teams to the region is the fact that we don’t have to schedule too many non-region games now that we have an eight team region.”
For the last two classification periods, Region 8 was a six team region.
Muscle Shoals has a 4-0 all-time record against Buckhorn with the last meeting coming in 2015 when the Trojans beat the Bucks 28-0.
The Trojans have not faced Hazel Green since 2017 when Muscle Shoals beat the Trojans 33-16. Muscle Shoals has a 6-0 all-time record against Hazel Green.
The new alignment will take effect next fall and will be used for the next two seasons.
As expected, Muscle Shoals will remain in Class 6A for the next two school years – 2020-21 and 2021-22 – despite being one of the smallest 6A programs in the state.
Region alignments for other sports will be announced over the next several days by the AHSAA.

Congratulations, Mrs. Brooks!
