HALEYVILLE - Friday, Oct. 11 will be Haleyville High School Champions Night, as they take on Good Hope.
All teams from 1952-1964 will be recognized. Players will be welcomed into the HHS cafeteria at 5:30 p.m. prior to the game and at 6:35 p.m., a Walk of Champions will begin that will end on the sideline of The Bubba, where each team will be recognized.
