Foley and Football
Foley High School has been an area powerhouse for more than 50 years. Hall of Famer Kenny Stabler graduated from Foley in 1964, after leading the team to a 29 – 1 record over his three years at quarterback. “The Snake” was also a star baseball and basketball player for the Lions.
There are currently two Foley High Alumni playing in the National Football League. Julio Jones is a wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons and many believe he is capable of having a Hall of Fame career.
