Football » Great American Rivalry Series Presents: Brookwood vs. Parkview
Brookwood vs Parkview is a rivalry that began the year Brookwood opened its doors, 1982, due to the population growth in Gwinnett County. They have played every year since, except for 1992 and 1993 due to district re-alignment issues. The two teams shared a stadium for 8 years until 1989, constantly arguing over who's logo should go on the 50-yard-line. The game has been coined the "Battle of Five Forks- Trickum," a reference to the road that connects the two districts. The rivalry really heated up in 2002, when Parkview beat Brookwood in the national championship. This year will mark the 32nd meeting, a series in which Brookwood holds the record 19-12. Former players include Jason Elam (retired NFL kicker), Stephon Heyer (NFL Lineman), who both played for Brookwood, as well as Michael Palmer and Ainsley Battles, who both played for Parkview.
