The UTV44 High School Game of the Week presented by Whataburger is gearing up for the semifinal round of the AHSAA playoffs.  The 12-1 #7 ranked Saraland Spartans will face off against the 13-0 #1 ranked Spanish Fort Toros.

Saraland comes into this game following a double overtime win over St. Paul’s 20-14 in the quarterfinals.  Head coach Jeff Kelly brings in an offense led by senior quarterback Jay Ward and senior running back Leander Burrowes.  Ward has thrown for 1,565 yards and 13 touchdowns, and Burrowes has carried the ball 194 times for 1,188 yards and scored 11 touchdowns.  Their offense, which averages 35.7 points per game, will have a tough time against the Toros defense.  The Spartans defense, led by junior linebacker Skylar Mosely, is only giving up 12.8 points per game.  Mosley has 85 tackles, 3 sacks, and 6 interceptions for the season.

The Spanish Fort Toros are coming off a 36-6 quarterfinal win over previously unbeaten and #2 ranked Jackson Aggies.  Quarterback Tyler Johnston continues to lead this high power offense of head coach Mark Freeman; they are averaging 44 points per game.  Against the Aggies Johnston rushed for three touchdowns in the victory.  The defense led by Senior Matt Hall is only giving up 7.7 points per game and that includes three shutouts on the season.  The Toros have not lost a game since week six of the 2012 season.

These two teams will meet for the first time in school history, the loser goes home and the winner moves on to Tuscaloosa for the 5A state championship to face the winner of Southside-Gadsden vs. Muscle Shoals.

Due to AHSAA regulations, this game will be a tape delayed broadcast.  The game will air on UTV44 on Saturday November 30th at 7pm.
