Tornadoes Touch Down in Semi Finals
Junior quarterback and safety Javion Belle led the Pickens County Tornadoes (10-3) past the Hubbertville Lions (9-3) 40-24 in the round three of the AHSAA Class 1A playoffs. Belle seized the momentum for good for the Tornadoes by cashing in a 35-yard pick-six to close the half and send Pickens County into the locker room with a 20-12 halftime lead.
Last night, I watched the news in awe as the tornadoes crossed Mississippi and Alabama.  It was particularly striking for me because the area in Aliceville that was hit is the community where my family lives, close to where we lived when we first moved to Alabama.
