After sharing the crown in 2017, Albion captured outright possession of the Class B2 football championship this fall posting a 5-0 record capped off by a 34-12 victory over rival Medina.

Quarterback Bryce Pritchard ran for two touchdowns and passed to Nate Moore for another and Brillance Johnson ran for a pair of scores to lead the Purple Eagles to the win over the Mustangs.

Albion went 7-0 during the regular season and upped that record to 8-0 by downing Lackawanna 34-14 in the quarterfinals of the Section VI Class B playoffs.

However, the Purple Eagles win streak and season came to a halt in the semifinals via a 28-6 loss to Cheektowaga.
