Sports: So very close. Fultondale football standout ArDarius Stewart just missed out on winning the Mr. Football award as the state’s best prep player. The prep sports committee of the Alabama Sports Writers Association instead gave the award to quarterback Jeremy Johnson of Carver-Montgomery, who won the balloting by two points — the smallest margin in the 31-year history of the award. Stewart was selected as Class 2A Back of the Year for the second straight season, and Pinson Valley linebacker Zach Cunningham was picked as 5A Lineman of the Year. He, Stewart and Johnson were also named to the ASWA Super 12 team of the state’s top players. The awards were handed out Wednesday in Montgomery… Prep basketball: Barring cancellations for snow, Corner is scheduled to travel to arch-rival Hayden tonight, while Mortimer Jordan heads for Arab… College football: Details are still emerging about a very strange hoax which Notre Dame says was perpetrated on linebacker Manti T’eo. The school says that the story of his girlfriend dying of leukemia was not true, and they claim T’eo was the victim of the hoax of what he termed as an online relationship. The investigation is continuing.
