ESPN announces full High School Football Showcase schedule


Starting September 2 and running through November 4, ESPN is set to showcase some of the top teams in the nation, including a few from the state of Alabama.

We already announced that ESPN will carry Hoover vs. Grayson (GA) at the end of the season, but now the full schedule for the 2016 GEICO ESPN High School Football Showcase has not only some of the best teams in the nation, but another great in-state match-up.

Saraland will travel to Spanish Fort to take on the Toros on October 13, and that game will be on ESPN2.

Spanish Fort is the defending 6A state champion, and Saraland was the 6A runner-up in 2014. Spanish Fort also won 5A titles in 2010, 2012, and 2013. Spanish Fort has won their Mobile region the last four years, but Saraland is looking to knock them off this season, along with Blount.
