Hoover, AL – The defending 7A state champion Hoover Bucs will close the 2017 football season against one the nation’s top prep powerhouses.

Josh Niblett’s Buccaneers will host the IMG Academy Assenders out of Bradenton, FL November 3rd at the Hoover Met.

IMG is coming off an 11-0 season which ended with a number two ranking nationally by USA Today.  Hoover came in at #19 in the poll.

In addition to the meat grinder that is class 7A region 3, the Bucs will open 2017 at metro Atlanta power Grayson High and to play host to Meridian High (MS) and IMG.
