State. He scored three touchdowns last week, and QB Brandon James threw three TD passes. 3. Westover RB Shannon Saunders rushed for 208 yards and two touchdowns in Westover's 26-21 victory over sixth-ranked Jonesboro in the first round. It was a rematch of a regular-season game.

Grady blocked a punt and forced three turnovers in the first half in route to a 21-7 lead. 3.

Monroe at Burke County

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, The Bear Den, Waynesboro

Records, rankings: Monroe is 8-3, the No. 3 seed from Region 1-AAAA and unranked; Burke County is 10-1, the No. 1 seed from 3-AAAA and ranked No. 3.

Sandy Creek's .946 winning percentage (53-3) over the past five seasons is the best in Georgia. Buford's two forfeited victories conspired to move Sandy Creek to the top. Sandy Creek also has won 13 of its last 14 playoff games.

Mary Persons has made 15 quarterfinals, but none since 1998.

Maxwell Ratings' projection: Cairo by 9

Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.

Three things to know: 1. Ridgeland's best player is DB/WR Vonn Bell, one of only five Atlanta Journal-Constitution Super 11 players who survived the first round. But Ridgeland has other good players. RB Darrell Bridges rushed for 202 yards and five touchdowns on 22 carries in a 45-21 victory over Washington last week. 2. LaGrange's defense scored three touchdowns in a 59-46 victory over Chestatee in the first round. Demoton Boyd scored two of them on interceptions returns and also scored on a 62-yard run from scrimmage. DL Joe Sanders, who has committed to Tennessee, returned a fumble for a touchdown. 3. LaGrange broke a school record for points in a playoff game against Chestatee. The win also broke LaGrange's four-game losing streak in the playoffs, the longest in school history. LaGrange is 55-27-1 all-time in the playoffs. LaGrange also averted a third consecutive losing season, which has not happened since 1965-67.

Maxwell Ratings' projection: Ridgeland by 21

Winner plays: Mary Persons/Cairo winner

That also came in Grooms' third season. 3. Stockbridge is trying to make its first quarterfinal in history. Wayne County is trying to make its first since 1993 and fifth overall.

One or the other has made the quarterfinals for 22 of the past 25 years, missing only in 1995, 2001 and 2010. Carrollton has won seven state titles and played in the finals of four others. The two schools have played in 22 state championship games. Carrollton has won seven state titles, Marist two.

Caver led 35-6 in the second quarter. 2. Rockmart won its first playoff game since 1988 in a 34-33 victory over Appling County last week. It was Rockmart's first road win in the playoffs since beating Valdosta 52-21 in the 1950 Class A championship game. QB Julian Welch's 8-yard run with 2:19 left was the game-winner. 3. Carver is one victory from its sixth consecutive trip to the quarterfinals. The only other schools that can achieve that this season are Buford, Cairo, Grayson and Lincoln County. Cairo had made only one other quarterfinal in its history before the current streak started.

Johnson led 25-23 with 2:18 left when RB Corbin Mitchell scored on a 43-yard run to seal it. 3. Johnson's victory was the Savannah school's first in a state playoff game. Johnson, which began playing football in the 1950s, did win a region playoff game in 1992 over Savannah and played in a state championship game in 1963 in the Georgia Interscholastic Association. But there were no playoffs leading up to the '63 title game, which Johnson lost 39-7 to South Fulton.

Winner plays: Blessed Trinity/Cartersville winner

 

Blessed Trinity at Cartersville

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Weinman Stadium, Cartersville

Records, rankings: Blessed Trinity is 9-2, the No. 2 seed from Region 6-AAA and ranked No. 9; Cartersville is 11-0, the No. 1 seed from 5-AAA and ranked No. 6.

Winner plays: Johnson/Thomson winner

 

Peach County at Pierce County

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Bearville Stadium, Blackshear

Records, rankings: Peach County is 10-1, the No. 2 seed from 2-AAA and ranked No. 5; Pierce County is 10-1, the No. 1 seed from 1-AAA and unranked.

Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.

Three things to know: 1. Pierce County beat Central of Carrollton 33-27 in the first round after trailing 27-14 with 2:11 left, when Central still had the ball.

Pierce got the ball back with a minute left and drove 60 yards for the tying touchdown, a sneak by QB Tyler Harris. Pierce's extra point was blocked. But Pierce stopped Central in overtime, and RB Josh Henderson scored on a 15-yard sweep to win it. For more on Pierce's comeback, read this ajc.com story. 2. Peach County QB Greg Williams threw for 162 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-21 victory over Jefferson County in the first round. Pierce County, which had two punts blocked last week, will notice that Peach blocked a punt against Jefferson County and returned the loose ball for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to put away what had been a close game. 3. Pierce County's victory over Central was the school's first playoff win since 2002, when Pierce made the quarterfinals for only the second time in history. The other was in 1982. Peach County will make the quarterfinals for the eighth time in 10 seasons with a win.

Three things to know: 1. North Hall RB Kevin Christmas rushed for 142 yards, part of North Hall's 388 yards in total offense, in a 38-7 victory over Woodward Academy last week.

Morgan County held on to its 24-21 victory over Gordon Central last week when Carter Shultz, Michael Gray and Stewart Spence forced a fumble at the Morgan 2-yard line with 0.4 seconds left.

North Hall is trying to reach its first quarterfinal since 2007, third in history, all since 2004. That's also the last time that North Hall lost a playoff game at home. The Trojans are 7-0 at home in the playoffs since. Morgan County needs a win to make its first quarterfinal since 1992.

Invitation To Coaches

Salute to High School Football Reception

All GHSA-affiliated football head coaches are invited to attend the 2012 Salute to Georgia High School Football Reception, presented by Russell Athletic. The event will take place on Dec. 15 from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Atlanta Falcons Owners Club at the Georgia Dome.

 

With the first state championship game on that Saturday kicking off at the new start time of 11:30 a.m., the event has been changed from a luncheon to a reception. The invitation allows coaches and a guest to enjoy a meal and mingle with fellow coaches as well as the 2012 Classification Coaches of the Year, Warrick Dunn Captain in the Community honorees and the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Additionally, prizes will be awarded for commitment to the sport of football.

 

The Atlanta Falcons will offer to the first 100 coaches to RSVP for the reception the opportunity to receive two tickets to the Falcons-Buccaneers game on Dec. 30 at the Georgia Dome. Make sure to mention the tickets when you RSVP, and Mia Scott will follow up with a confirmation of attendance and tickets.

 

For coaches staying in Atlanta, the following hotels within six blocks of the Georgia Dome are recommended: Omni at CNN Center, 404-659-0000; Embassy Suites, 404-223-2300; Residence Inn by Marriott, 404-522-0950; and Quality Hotel, 404-524-7991.

 

RSVP by Dec. 3 by calling 404-367-2243 or e-mailing Scott at mscott@falcons.nfl.com.
