Madison County, proud owners of back to back Class1A State Championships. In that time? They're 27 and 1, and that's beating schools from various classifications.

In 2019, the 'Boys will be talented again. They'll have to replace Travis Jay, who's now at Florida State, but key players like Vinsonta Allen, Derrion Staten, and Zane Herring are back for another season. There's close to 20 seniors on this team, and head coach Mike Coe said he expects another special year on Boot Hill.

"These guys don't like to lose. They work hard. They understand the history at our place," he said. "They understand that talent expects. Nobody expects more out of them than they do themselves. They know what it takes. There's really, there's no more added pressure. We want to win a third one. We'll do the things we've done forever and at the end I think we'll have an opportunity."
