After a 2-2 start, the Ariton Purple Cats have reeled off four straight wins, capped by a 55-0 blowout of Florala last Friday. That's good enough to earn Ariton the Friday Night Football Team of the Week Award.
With the win over Florala, Ariton locked up a spot in the class 1A Playoffs. Of course, Ariton is no stranger to the post-season.
Ariton Head Coach David Collins said, "That's big. We have a pretty good tradition of being in the playoffs. It was real important for the kids. It's very big for us."
Ariton will try to get its fifth straight win Friday when the Purple Cats visit the Geneva County Bulldogs.
