Outlook: Today we get our 1st look at a team that has resurface to the scene formerly known as the Redstone Generals but are now back with a new look and new name ”Madison Generals” They have regrouped and reorganized themselves are now the team give everyone opponent they face a run for the money never given up fighting till the clock strikes 00:00 in the 4th quarter. They live by their motto: G’s over all!!!

Backed by Coach Carlos Mathews, who enters his 5th season as the Mad Scientist behind the Generals offense who lead them to their first playoff appearance and first team championship in 2014 in the Alabama Spring Football League. But now he has taken his team to the next level and looking to see how they finish what they started battling against the high powered teams in the GDFL.

Offensively, the club has had great success at running the ball lead by the Generals All Time leading Rusher Laquince Love (AVERAGE 150 YPG, 2 TD PG, 9 YPC) And this year will get a great challenge by 2nd year starters Dion Sanders CB, Rex Nanji TE . They will also have some high powered and sure handed receivers returning that will be fighting for starting positions again Mark McRae, Rod Smith, and Joshua Simmons. It will be a battle all the way up until game day as to whom will start.

But the Generals are pleased to have back 2 offensive weapons returning to the team the talented WR Anthony McCrae and RB LaQuince Love they should be a handful for most defensive this year with their great quickness and strong legs both should be a game day play maker,you should look out for.

Defensively you will see what we believe will be the top DL in the GDFL. Lead by owner. #48 Sylvester Redix Pine Bluff, AR. Generals 2014 Iron Man of the Year Nominee, 2013,2014 & 2015 1ST TEAM GDFL ALL STAR TEAM. Sylvester is the heart and soul of this team this year he has been working out hard this off season and has drop weight just to keep to make sure that he will continue to be a force in the middle of the Generals Defensive Line. Also returning #1 Robert Lemartaze Gurley SS (Lee High School) Huntsville, Al. on the defensive side of the ball these guys have a motor that never stops. With their quickness, strength, and agility they will be a night mare for most offensive.

The core of the team will rest on the shoulders of defensive side of the ball Reggie Elston ILB, Quinten UnStopable Williams OL/DT ,& the host of new talent that they have picked up from various high schools in Madison, AL and other areas in the TN Valley including Tre Battle, & James Vandergrift, All who have created a true brother hood and can’t wait to make an impact with the Generals in 2017.

One of the more interesting match-ups of the season will be the Southeast Battle between Madison Generals vs Huntsville Rockets & VS River City Pythons (Decatur Al). These 3 teams have a long scary past that each one has been fighting to vanish. and in 2017 they will finally put to the rest the question? ‘’WHO IS THE BEST TEAM IN THE TN VALLEY!!!
