The football playoff picture for area teams cleared up considerably on the last Friday night of region games.
HACKLEBURG — Brayden Kyle accounted for six touchdowns as Decatur Heritage used a strong second half to roll past Hackleburg 53-28 on Friday, claiming the Class 1A, Region 8 championship in the process.
Class 7A, Region 4: The top three are James Clemens (9-0, 6-0), Bob Jones (5-3, 5-1) and Florence (4-4, 4-2). If Huntsville (2-6, 2-4) beats Sparkman (3-5, 3-3) and Austin (3-5, 2-4) beats Bob Jones, there would be a three-way tie for fourth.
CHEROKEE — Brayden Kyle accounted for four touchdowns, three passing and one rushing, as Decatur Heritage delivered head coach Steve Meek his 100th career victory with a 47-0 Class 1A, Region 8 win at Cherokee on Friday.
