Dothan High has ‘historic’ first flag football game Tuesday in Eufaula | High-school

The Wolves coach said the team had two goals for the historical opening matches.

“Our goal is to play hard and compete,” Williams said. “We will not take any plays off.”

Team members for the historic first Dothan Wolves flag football team are: seniors Olivia Burgess, Jayvia Carter, Nijah Durr, Liberty Ebikake, Aubrey Harrell, Anika Kindred, Chalice Patterson, Amiyah Rollins; juniors Saniyah Fletcher Kevelyn Grayson, Shariza Klinger, Jessica Rivas, Renae Woods; sophomores Reecy Beacham, Maggie Benton, Andrea Briseno, Mary Lynn Bryant, Taylor Daniel, Jamie McCloud, Zamariah Robinson and eighth grader Carter Grace Tessman.

Many of the players are multi-sport athletes at Dothan, having played volleyball, basketball or soccer.

While it’s Dothan’s first games, Eufaula has already played three contests, losing to Opelika twice and beating Loachapoka. Russell County, like Dothan, has not played a game yet.

The Wolves return to Eufaula on Thursday for another tri-match that will include Smiths Station.

Dothan has four other playing dates lined up, all on the road as Williams, who was named coach early in the fall, didn’t have time to work out logistics to play a home match. The dates of other games are Oct. 19, Nov. 2, Nov. 4 and Nov. 9.
