We now have less than a week until the football season officially kicks off with the Champions Challenge and more games on Thursday, August 18, and the first full Friday night the day after.
As we look forward to seeing all of the teams start their journey to Jordan-Hare Stadium for the Super 7, many individual players standout as some of the best to watch this upcoming season.
We got together and looked at the major players throughout the state of Alabama and compiled our 2016 Preseason All-State Team, made up of some of the most talented players in not only the state of Alabama, but the whole country.
Many have already committed to major colleges like Brian Robinson to Alabama and Austin Troxel to Auburn, but plenty have left their recruitment open and are looking forward to impressing coaches even more this upcoming season.
