Start making your plans to attend the Falkville Blue Devils football game Oct. 1 They will play host to Cold Springs. Pray that the officials will show up for this game. Sometime in the 1980’s it was homecoming and the Blue Devils were playing Cold Springs and the officials did not make their appearance until the end of the game.
The game was finally played. I think of this every every time I hear of Cold Springs football.
