CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – The Chambers Academy Rebels opened the 2021 season with a route of Auburn’s Lee-Scott Academy 41-3.
“I thought it was a solid start for our team,” said Jason Allen, coach of the Rebels. “We are breaking in a new quarterback, so we are leaning on our returners at the skill positions and on our defense.”
The Chambers defense accepted the extra weight and expectations and made Lee-Scott’s offensive efforts look like an exercise in futility.
Hunter Burdette, Kross Colley, Gavin Kight and Zack Bylsma combined for 40 tackles
Allen: “We played well on defense, as we return a lot of guys on that side of the ball.”
Offensively though, the Rebels scored early and often highlighted by Jordan Benbrook (167 yards and three scores) and Ty Trammell (83 all-purpose yards with a score and a 91-yard touchdown return).”
Allen: “We had a great crowd and it was a great night for football. We will get better each week.”
The march to Montgomery – for the Rebels – doesn’t get any easier from here. Chambers leaves the friendly confines of Lafayette next week traveling to Abbeville (hosts Springwood Friday night) but returns in successive weeks to Springwood and Lowndes before traveling to Montgomery to face Valiant Cross at Cramton Bowl and then down to Troy for a showdown with Pike Liberal.
