HAZEL GREEN, Alabama – Preston Stafford rushed for two touchdowns as Hazel Green rallied from a second-half deficit to defeat Grissom for its first victory of the season.
The Trojans (1-3, 1-2 in 7A, Region 4) regained the lead midway through the third quarter when Abdul Mukiibi ran 5 yards for a touchdown to cap a four-play scoring drive. Bradley Stubbs’ extra point made it 21-20 and the Trojans later tacked on two touchdowns in an 82-second span.
