Prattville is in the AHSSA in the largest 7A division.

Thacker announced he was leaving Morgan Academy in March, but wasn’t ready to confirm where he was headed.

Morgan has named Danny Willis Raines as the new head football coach and athletic director  in April. He has a proven record of winning. Raines comes to Morgan from Headland High School, where he served as head football coach for three years. His team made the playoffs in 2018, and he was also awarded the 4A Coach of the Year for Alabama in 2018.

The John T. Morgan Academy Senators closed out the 2019 season with a 42-13 win over non-regional opponent Cornerstone Christian School on the road in Columbiana on Nov. 1.

With the win, the AISA AAA Region 1 Senators improved to 4-7 overall and remained 0-4 in regional play.
