The Hackleburg Panthers will celebrate a milestone in the history of their football team Friday evening. When the Panthers step onto the field, it will be the first home game held at Hackleburg High School since the fall of 2010. The April 2011 tornado that destroyed most of the town of Hackleburg also wiped out the entire campus of HHS and the athletic facilities.
Not only will Friday night be a big night for the current Panthers, but the graduates from the past three senior classes who played football but never played on the field at Hackleburg High School will be recognized before the start of the game. Hackleburg will face the Red Raiders of Marion County at 7:00 p.m. The special service for the recent graduates will begin at 6:30 p.m.
