The schedule for Riverdale Academy’s football team has been finalized. They have five away games and five games at home in 2018. Riverdale has five district games this year.
The Rebels first action under new head coach Jared Barber will be the Jamboree August 11th at the University of Louisiana Monroe. The Rebels will play Tallulah at 12:00 noon and then Caiborne at 12:25 pm.
Here is the schedule from Coach Barber:
@Rebul Academy 8/17
Prentiss Academy 8/24
@Wilkinson County Christian 9/7
@Christian Collegiate Academy 9/14
Claiborne Academy 9/21*
@Franklin Academy 9/28*
Prairie View Academy 10/5*
Tallulah Academy 10/12*
Tensas Academy 10/19
@Briarfield Academy 10/24*
Scheduling this year for MAIS schools was delayed due to changes in the programs offered by Riverdale’s opponents. Several schools went from 11-man to 8-man football and one school had considered not fielding a team this year. That resulted in the late date for finalizing the schedule.
