ADDISON – If you live in the state of Alabama and play football, chances are you have dreamed of playing in Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn or Bryant-Denny in Tuscaloosa. The latter is a real possibility for the Addison Bulldogs as they are just two games away from the AHSAA 1A state championship game on the campus of the University of Alabama. First, though, the Bulldogs must get past the South Lamar Stallions Friday night.

The Bulldogs, 10-2 and second in 1A Region 7, have racked up 468 points this season, while only allowing 166.

Points per game average: 39

Average margin of victory: 27
