Hoover fans primed for second season of 'Two-A-Days'

HOOVER (AP) — A new batch of Hoover High School football hijinks is set to begin next month when the second season of MTV's "Two-A-Days" debuts with a mostly new student cast.

The episodes will follow the Buccaneers" quest for a fifth consecutive state championship under head Coach Rush Propst. The popular show reached a total of 64 million viewers this fall, leading MTV officials to announce a second season at the end of September.

This season's potential "Two-A-Days" cast members include returning quarterback Ross Wilson, linebacker Michael DeJohn, wide receiver Brandon Clear, wide receiver Charlie Zorn, defensive lineman Mark McCarty, cheerleader Brittany Benton, senior Kristen Padalino and Propst — all of whom are featured in a trailer on

The Bucs lost the 2006 state championship game to Prattville High by 14 points, but producers and school officials don't think that will hurt the show's success.

"Last year we had a great time down here in Hoover, and this past year was even better because I think everybody saw the show; they enjoyed the show," said Jason Sciavicco, the chief producer at Humidity Entertainment, which created the series. "We had a fun time doing it, and the kids had fun doing it."

Hoover's athletic director Jerry Browning said there was less outside drama around season two as local TV stations weren't filming MTV crews as they did initially.

There were nine episodes last year, but Sciavicco said the series is still being edited and the number of shows has not been determined.
