Georgia High School Football Daily-10/25/12

October 25, 2012
By Calvin Scandrett of Lamar County Trojans

Weekend Preview: GHSF Daily's 10 Best

Bleckley County at Lamar County

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Trojan Stadium, Barnesville

Records, rankings: Bleckley County is 6-1 overall, 4-0 in Region 4-AA and unranked; Lamar County is 6-0-1, 4-0 and No. 7.

Last meeting: Lamar County won 35-14 in 2011.

Three things to know:1. The Austin twins, QB Lance and RB Lawrence, are the mainstays of Lamar County's offense. Lance is 20-of-37 passing for 422 yards and four touchdowns, and he has rushed for 248 yards. Lawrence has rushed for 624 yards on 57 carries and scored eight touchdowns, one on a kickoff return. They are juniors. 2. Bleckley County head coach Tracy White has the Royals 6-1 for the first time since 1991. White replaced retiring Sam Barrs. White had been an assistant at Dublin and assisted Barrs at Bleckley in 2008 and previously at Dublin. White inherited all-state junior QB Tavon Ross, who has rushed for a team-leading 415 yards on 52 carries and thrown for 409 yards. Bleckley could be without big FB Tij'ea Randall (274 yards rushing, 47 carries), who was diagnosed with a heart condition and sat out last week, according to the Bleckley Progress. 3. These are the only unbeaten teams in Region 3-AA. Bleckley County, opened in 1977, has never won a region title, although the Cochran Royals, a predecessor school, won 3-A in 1972. Lamar County won region titles in 2001, 2002 and 2011.


Clinch County at Charlton County

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Indian Field/The Swamp, Folkston

Records, rankings: Clinch County is 3-4 overall, 1-2 in Region 2-A and unranked; Charlton County is 4-3, 2-1 and unranked.

Last meeting: Charlton County won 21-14 in 2011.

Three things to know: 1. This is the 70th anniversary of what is generally regarded as one of Georgia's top 10 rivalries. It is called the Swamp War, as the counties sit on either side of the Okefenokee Swamp. Folkston (later consolidated into Charlton County) beat Clinch County 33-12 in 1952. Charlton County/Folkston leads the series 32-27-1 and has won 13 of the past 15 meetings. 2. Both schools have won three state titles in the past 10 seasons, but both are having down years. Charlton (state champ in 2004, 2005, 2006) would have to win state again to avoid its first four-loss season since 1993. Clinch (state champ in 2002, 2004, 2010) is in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 1989. Clinch's schedule is rated the toughest in Class A by the Maxwell Ratings. Charlton's schedule is rated fourth-toughest. 3. Neither team has put up outstanding offensive numbers against their strong schedules. RB Tyree Savage leads Charlton in rushing with 559 yards on 95 carries (5.9 ypc) and four touchdowns. QB Trae Harrington is 53-of-120 passing with four touchdowns. Clinch County's leading rusher is Kenyun Morehead (229 yards, 62 carries, 5 TD). Clinch passes less than 10 times per game.


Cook at Brooks County

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Veterans Stadium, Quitman

Records, rankings: Cook is 6-1 overall, 2-1 in Region 1-AA and No. 5; Brooks County is 8-0, 4-0 and No. 2.

Last meeting: Brooks County won 19-15 in 2011.

Three things to know:1. Brooks County will clinch Region 1-AA with a victory, but Cook holds the tiebreaker advantage if it wins and forces a three-way tie for having beaten three Class AAAA schools and one AAA school. 2. Four of Cook's offensive linemen didn't play against Jefferson County last week because of injury, and RB/WR K.J. Edwards was out with an injured ankle. Cook does not expect all of those players back this week. "We're probably going into the Brooks game without our racehorses, but we'll make the best of it," Cook coach Ken Cofer told GHSF Daily. 3. QB Malcolm Parrish and RB Deric Herring are the centerpieces to Brooks County's offense. Parrish (114-of-219 passing) has thrown for 1,972 yards and 20 touchdowns with only three interceptions. He also has rushed for 452 yards and 11 touchdowns. Herring has 616 yards receiving (27 catches) and 248 yards rushing (53 carries). He has scored 12 touchdowns.


East Coweta at Hughes

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Langston Hughes Stadium, Fairburn

Records, rankings: East Coweta is 3-4 overall, 2-0 in Region 3-AAAAAA and unranked; Hughes is 6-1, 2-0 and unranked.

Last meeting: East Coweta won 35-14 in 2011.

Three things to know: 1. East Coweta has opened region play with two consecutive victories after going 1-4 against a difficult non-region schedule. Part of the reason for the team's improvement has been the continued growth of junior QB Bryce Gemmel. He passed for 201 yards and two touchdowns (54 and 34 yards) and ran 27 yards for a score in the Indians' 44-15 victory over Tri-Cities last week. 2. Hughes dropped a spot to No. 3 in Class AAAAAA defense after allowing 14 fourth-quarter points in a 34-14 victory over Newnan last week. Still, the Panthers are giving up just 8.4 points per game, and they held Newnan to 58 yards rushing, according to the Newnan Times-Herald. Keion Davis had two TD runs (2 and 65 yards) and a touchdown catch for the Panthers. 3. East Coweta and Hughes are the only unbeaten teams in 3-AAAAAA play, and the winner will control its fate in the battle for the region title.


George Walton at Athens Academy

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Slaughter Field, Athens

Records, rankings: George Walton Academy is 5-2 overall, 2-1 in Region 8-A and unranked; Athens Academy is 7-0, 3-0 and No. 3.

Last meeting: George Walton won 22-10 in 2011.

Three things to know: 1. George Walton's standout player is Stanley Williams, a 5-foot-9 running back who has committed to Georgia. Williams rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown in the Bulldogs' 29-10 loss to Pinecrest Academy last week and has 944 yards on the season. George Walton QB Hunter Rice missed the first half of last week's game with a shoulder injury. 2. Athens Academy QB Adam Schulte was 8-for-10 passing for 129 yards and rushed for 25 yards and two touchdowns on five carries in a 45-7 victory against Commerce last week. RB Taylor Allen rushed for 48 yards and two TDs on nine carries. 3. Athens Academy is the No. 1 private school in this week's Class A power rankings and is in line to be the top seed in the private school playoffs if it wins its remaining games and takes the Region 8-A title. Region champions get the top spots in the Class A tournaments, and the Spartans are the only remaining unbeaten team in the region. George Walton is No. 12 in the power rankings and one of four teams in 8-A with one region loss.


M.L. King at Stephenson

When, where: 8 p.m. Friday, Hallford Stadium, Clarkston

Records, rankings: M.L. King is 7-0 overall, 6-0 in Region 6-AAAAA and No. 2; Stephenson is 5-1, 5-1 and No. 9.

Last meeting: M.L. King won 50-49 in 2011.

Three things to know: 1. M.L. King has one of the most balanced offenses in DeKalb, as QB Monquavious Johnson (passing), RB Spencer Williams (rushing) and WR Demarquis Polite-Bray (receiving) all rank in the top five in the county in yardage in their categories. Polite-Bray scored on a punt return and a 51-yard reception in a 51-0 victory against Lakeside of Atlanta last week. 2. Stephenson recorded its biggest victory of the season when it beat Tucker 13-6 two weeks ago but turned around and suffered its first loss, 32-29 against Miller Grove last week. Stephenson QB Justin Holman passes for a little more than 100 yards per game. Evan Jones, Brandon Washington, Tevin Austin and Jahmal Daniels share the load rushing. 3. M.L. King has sole possession of first place in 6-AAAAA and can win the region title with victories in its final three games against the three teams in the region that have one loss. Stephenson is tied with Miller Grove and Tucker for second place but will win the region if it wins its final three games and Miller Grove loses at least once.


Miller Grove at Tucker

When, where: 8 p.m. Friday, Adams Stadium, Atlanta

Records, rankings: Miller Grove is 6-1 overall, 5-1 in Region 6-AAAAA and unranked; Tucker is 6-1, 5-1 and No. 5.

Last meeting: Tucker won 37-6 in 2011.

Three things to know: 1. Miller Grove QB Ken Allen threw four touchdown passes last week as the Wolverines rallied from a 21-6 first-half deficit to beat Stephenson 32-29. Allen's 22-yard pass to Xavier Hopkins midway through the fourth quarter provided the winning points in what many consider to be the biggest victory in school history. Allen also had a 30-yard TD pass to Jonquavious McBride on the final play of the first half to cut the lead to 21-12. 2. Tucker has the leading rushing offense in DeKalb County, but the Tigers have been slowed a bit in their past two games - a 13-6 loss to Stephenson and a 29-0 victory over Southwest DeKalb. Tucker scored 27 rushing touchdowns in the first five games but has just one since then. Dominick Sanders scored three TDs last week, on a 42-yard punt return, an 11-yard run and a 2-yard reception. 3. Miller Grove, Tucker and Stephenson are 5-1 and tied for second place in Region 6-AAAAA, one game behind unbeaten M.L. King. All four teams have a shot at the outright region title, although only M.L. King and Miller Grove control their own fate.


Milton at Walton

When, where: 9 p.m. Friday, Raider Valley, Marietta

Records, rankings: Both teams are 5-2 overall, 3-1 in Region 5-AAAAAA and unranked.

Last meeting: Walton won both meetings last year - 42-16 in the regular season and 48-14 in the first round of the Class AAAAA playoffs.

Three things to know: 1. The game will be televised by ESPNU, thus the unusual kickoff time of 9 p.m. The national attraction is the number of college recruits. Walton RB Tyren Jones and QB Parker McLeod have committed to Alabama. OL Brandon Kublanow has committed to Georgia. OL Jake Boynton has committed to Kentucky. Junior CB D.J. Smith has several SEC offers. Milton seniors who are committed are DE Carl Lawson (Auburn), OL Cory Helms (Wake Forest), OL Josh Harris (Wake Forest), OL Eason Fromayan (TCU) and RB Peyton Barber (Ole Miss). Junior RB Treyvon Paulk has offers from two SEC schools. 2. Both teams are heavily reliant on their running games. Jones has rushed for 1,547 of Walton's 1,572 rushing yards. Walton quarterbacks have thrown four TD passes, down from 18 a year ago. Milton has run for 32 of its 34 touchdowns. Barber has 1,148 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns on 148 carries. Pauk has 645 yards rushing and nine touchdowns on 94 carries. 3. The winner is the logical choice to finish second in the region and get a home playoff game, although Milton is better situated, having already beaten Etowah. Walton, Milton and Etowah are 3-1 in region play. Milton has played only two home playoff games (2008, 1993) since 1950.


St. Pius at Woodward Academy

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Colquitt Stadium, College Park

Records, rankings: St. Pius is 6-1 overall, 3-0 in Region 6-AAA and No. 5; Woodward Academy is 6-2, 3-1 and No. 10.

Last meeting: St. Pius won 21-6 in 2011.

Three things to know: 1. St. Pius' victory over Woodward Academy last season came in the Region 5-AAA championship game. It ended Woodward Academy's 11-game winning streak in the series, which Woodward leads 11-3-2, although the teams had not met since 1991. 2. This game matches two of the top defenses in Class AAA. Woodward Academy is second in the classification, allowing 8.0 points per game and holding seven of eight opponents to two touchdowns or less. St. Pius is fourth-best in AAA, giving up 10.3 points per game. Each has two shutouts. 3. St. Pius FB Ryan Braswell set school records for rushing yards (283) and attempts (35) and scored three touchdowns in a 38-28 victory against Cedar Grove last week. Woodward Academy's offense is led by QB Terry Googer, who passed for three touchdowns against McNair last week and ran for three scores in a victory over Decatur earlier this month.


Thomson at Washington County

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, The House of Pain, Sandersville

Records, rankings: Thomson is 8-0 overall, 2-0 in Region 3-AAA and No. 2; Washington County is 8-0, 2-0 and No. 3.

Last meeting: Thomson won 45-38 in two overtimes in 2011.

Three things to know: 1. Washington County has three players with at least 10 touchdowns rushing, and all are on pace for 1,000 yards if they play 13 games. They are RB Melvin Hill (76 carries, 758 yards, 15 touchdowns), QB William Walker (97-648-10) and RB Jukilo Johnson (65-542-11). Walker is 63-of-92 passing for 1,070 yards and 11 touchdowns with only one interception. 2. Thomson's Chris Jordan has rushed for 1,481 yards and 14 touchdowns on 160 carries. Torrie Battle (65-576-10) and William Bussey (37-316-3) also have rushed for more than 100 yards in games and are big-play threats, each with runs of at least 70 yards. 3. The winner will be the sole undefeated team in a region of only five teams. Thomson has won 21 GHSA region titles, none since 2007. Washington County has won 13, none since 2006. Thomson leads 26-10 in a series that began in 1959, but Washington County has won four of seven since 2005, when the series resumed after 16 years. Thomson also played Sandersville as early as 1940 and Tennille in 1932. Those schools merged to form Washington County in 1959.
