Countdown to T-town: No. 1 Tanner to play No. 3 WashCo. in 2A title rematch

— No. 1 Tanner (12-1) takes on third-ranked Washington County (13-1) in Friday’s Class 2A championship game at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.

Shown from left during the Rattlers’16-7 semifinal win at Fyffe are Tanner head coach Laron White, Chad Townsend (7) and Deshun Freeman (25),  as Javeous Johnson and Brian Washington lead the team onto the field.

Freeman, a senior defensive back, intercepted Fyffe quarterback Will Masburn twice, including a pick that stalled a potential game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter in the 2A semifinals last Friday.
