“It’s been a great year for all the sports teams so far this year. We’ve got some very talented players and they have been working really hard with our coaches. Football has been an area of success for a number of years, but it’s been particularly gratifying to see how far the other teams have come too. Our association with the City of Birmingham Rockets Basketball Club has been especially fruitful. Everyone in the department is looking forward to seeing how the season ends.”
