The Riverdale Academy Rebels begin their fall football schedule this Friday night. They travel to Rebul Academy at Learned, Mississippi. It is about a three and a half hour drive to the school, located south of Vicksburg.
Journal Sports is going to provide live streaming coverage of the Rebels first contest of the year. New head Football Coach Jared Barber has high hopes for the team this year. He has a tough act to follow as the Rebels were undefeated in district play in 2017.
The districts in the MISA have been realigned following several schools making changes in their athletic programs. All of Riverdale’s district opponents are now Louisiana teams. And every one of them will be trying to topple the district “King of the Hill” from last season.
If you cannot make the trip to Learned, Mississippi you can hear the game on The Journal’s web page and social media sites. On the web, it is www.RedRiverParishJournal.com and on social media go to www.Facebook.com/RedRiverParishJournal to listen to the game. There will be a “listen here” to click on. No special app is needed. The player should work on your favorite device.
