Banks Academy Football

Banks Academy’s football program is one of the best among all Private High Schools in the City of Birmingham. A winning tradition is already in place with a top ranked basketball program that won the ACAA Div. II State Championship in 2018.

Head Football Coach Riley White, is the Grandson of legendary Banks High School’s George “Shorty” White who won three state championships and produced 88 D1 Scholarship players in his 15 years as the Head Football Coach.

Football is a great tool to prepare young men for the trials and challenges of life. It is our goal to compliment our quality education in a Christian environment, with the mental discipline that is takes to have a championship program.
