Alabama powerhouse enters through embarrassingly misspelled banner

Prep Rally

If proof was needed that the preseason is a warm-up for more than just the players, it just arrived at a scrimmage in Alabama.

Hoover High's run-through banner, in preseason form — Twitter

As pictured on a variety of Twitter accounts and brought to Prep Rally's attention by Busted Coverage, Hoover (Al.) High, one of the nation's most high profile football programs, entered the field by bursting through a giant "run-through" banner with an enormous misspelled word during a recent preseason game. The banner, which was created by the Hoover cheerleaders, can be seen above.

Just in case you can't make out the exact words, here's what the banner says:

Hoover Football Cannot Be Held Responsable For Ruffled Feathers

Someone might want to take the time to remind the Hoover cheerleaders that it's spelled "responsible" with an "i", not an "a."

The ruffled feathers part of the message was a clever allusion to the Florence (Al.) High Falcons, who were Hoover's opponents in the preseason scrimmage.

Luckily for Hoover, the game on the field was more successful than the banner-making exercise; the Bucs pulled out a 27-6 victory against Florence.
