Class A Playoff Preview

Each day this week, we've been looking at the playoff draw for one of the five classifications, concluding today with Class A. Here are five interesting facts about each of the 16 games, with an emphasis on playoff history. Which school puts its 28-game home winning streak on the line Friday night? Find out below.


Favorite: Clinch County

Best draw: Wilkinson County

Worst draw: Johnson County

Sleeper: Emanuel County Institute

Best first-round matchup: Charlton County at Hawkinsville


Greenville (8-2) at Clinch Co. (10-0)

- Greenville, which won Region 4-A last season, defeated Brookstone 14-10 in a must-win game last week to get the No. 4 seed.

- Greenville coach Jeremy Williams has gained national recognition for his battle with Lou Gehrig's disease. While fighting the illness, Williams has led Greenville to its best back-to-back seasons (19-3 record) since 1985-86.

- Clinch County is ranked No. 1 in Class A and bidding to become the third school to win five state titles in Georgia's lowest classification. Those that have done it are Lincoln County and Hawkinsville.

- Clinch County has won 19 of its last 21 home playoff games but lost its last one, a 20-14 defeat to eventual champion Wilcox County in the 2009 semifinals.

- Greenville defeated Clinch County 12-10 in the 1980 Class A final. That was the only time these schools have played each other.


Miller Co. (7-3) at Calvary Day (8-2)

- This will be Calvary Day's first winning season since 2005 and first playoff game since 2003.

- Calvary Day's coach, Mark Stroud, is not to be confused with the coach of the same name at Benedictine, another Savannah private school. Calvary Day's Mark Stroud previously coached for 16 seasons at Toombs County, leading that school to five 10-win seasons.

- Miller County is 33-13 the past three seasons under Frank Killingsworth, who inherited a team that had gone 5-15 the previous two seasons.

- Miller County has been eliminated by private schools the past two seasons - Savannah Christian in 2009 and Wesleyan in 2008.

- This will be the first time these schools have met in football.


Washington-Wilkes (4-6) at ELCA (10-0)

- Washington-Wilkes has won its four games against non-playoff teams and lost its six games to playoff teams, including three outside its region, 7-A. Its schedule is rated the fourth-toughest among Class A teams, first-toughest among playoff teams in Class A.

- Washington-Wilkes, a program with four state titles and more than 50 postseason wins in its history, is in danger of having back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1979-80.

- Eagle's Landing Christian Academy is ranked No. 2, its highest spot in history, after a 35-28 victory last week over Wesleyan in a game between 9-0 teams.

- ECLA is ranked No. 2 to Clinch County in Class A scoring offense (43.1 points per game) and No. 1 in scoring defense (7.7).

- This will be the first time these schools have met in football.


Trion (6-4) at George Walton Acad. (9-1)

- George Walton's scoring defense is ranked No. 4 in Class A at 9.6 points allowed per game.

- George Walton won the Class AAA championship of the Georgia Independent School Association. No former GISA school has won a football state title in the GHSA. Those with a chance this season include Eagle's Landing Christian, Savannah Christian and Calvary Day.

- Trion's scoring defense is tied for the eighth-best among Class A playoff teams. Trion is allowing 10.5 points per game.

- Trion reached the Class A semifinals in 2003. The school is 0-4 in first-round playoff games since.

- This will be the first time these schools have met in football.


Turner Co. (5-5) at Marion Co. (9-1)

- Marion County's scoring defense is ranked No. 5 in Class A, allowing 9.8 points per game. Its offense is No. 14 at 30.4.

- Marion County is a region champion for the first time in its history. From 1976 to 2006, the school played football as part of Tri-County High. Schley County and Webster County high schools broke away one at a time, and the school name was changed to Marion County.

- Turner County is allowing more points, 29.8 per game, than any Class A playoff team.

- Turner County coach Erik Soliday won state titles while at Americus in 2000 and 2001. Other coaches in the Class A playoffs who have won Georgia state titles are ECI's Milan Turner, Commerce's Steve Savage, Lincoln County's Larry Campbell, Charlton County's Rich McWhorter, Wesleyan's Franklin Pridgen, Clinch County's Jim Dickerson and George Walton Academy's Don Williams.

- This will be the first time these schools have met in football.


ECI (8-2) at Seminole Co. (7-3)

- ECI's 49-23 victory over Seminole County in the 2007 first round is considered one of the biggest in ECI history. To that point, ECI had lost 13 of its previous 14 playoff games. Washaun Ealey returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and the win spurred ECI to its first state title.

- ECI's schedule is rated the toughest in Class A among playoff teams with a winning record, according to the Maxwell Ratings.

- Both of ECI's losses - to Swainsboro and Johnson County - were in overtime. The only other Georgia teams to lose twice in overtime this year are Brunswick and Harris County.

- Seminole County had to forfeit a game Oct. 1 against Mitchell County that would've decided the Region 1-A title. Seminole didn't have enough players to dress out following an altercation during the previous week's game against Daleville, Ala., that led to suspensions.

- Seminole County is 2-12 in the first round since the GHSA expanded the state playoffs to 32 teams per class in 1996. Its best finish was the Class A semifinals in 1974.


Holy Innocents' (7-3) at Wilkinson (8-2)

- Wilkinson County won its first region title this season (7-A) since 2000 by defeating Lincoln County for the first time in seven tries in the final game of the regular season.

- Wilkinson County has lost in the first round of the state playoffs five of its past six appearances. The exception was 2008, when the Warriors reached the Class A semifinals.

- Holy Innocents' is properly spelled with a possessive. The official name of the school is Holy Innocents' Episcopal School.

- Holy Innocents' began football in 2006 and is 3-0 in first-round playoff games the past three seasons. Only six other Class A schools have achieved that.

- This will be the first time these schools have met in football, although they have a common opponent. Holy Innocents' beat Washington-Wilkes 20-8, while Wilkinson County beat the Tigers 28-7.


Commerce (5-5) at Bremen (9-1)

- Commerce's head coach, Steve Savage, is expected to retire after this season. Savage was Commerce's quarterback in 1972, leading his team to the state semifinals. His record as a head coach is 181-84 in 22 seasons, all at Commerce.

- Bremen has reached the playoffs each season since 1998. Commerce's streak that extended to 1997 was ended last season.

- Bremen's scoring defense is the sixth-best in Class A, allowing 9.9 points per game. Its scoring offense is 19th at 27.5.

- Commerce's scoring defense is second-worst among Class A playoff teams, allowing 24.2 points per game. Its scoring offense (24.8) is 26th in the Class A draw.

- Commerce has beaten Bremen in both previous meetings - 28-14 in the 2003 Class A second round and 17-3 in the 2006 A second round.


Prince Avenue (7-3) at Darlington (9-1)

- Prince Avenue, the smallest school in the playoffs with approximately 175 students, began varsity football in 2005. This will mark the school's first playoff appearance and winning season.

- The 28-7 victory over eventual Region 8-A champion and area rival Athens Academy represents Prince Avenue's most significant win in school history.

- Darlington is scoring 37.6 points per game, eighth-best in Class A. Its scoring defense (16.2) ranks 22nd. Prince Avenue's ranks in the Class A field are 12th in scoring offense (32.2) and 26th in scoring defense (17.7).

- Darlington has clinched its 15th consecutive winning season.

- Darlington's run to the semifinals in 2009 represented the first time the school had advanced past the second round since its 1998 Class A championship season.


Pace Academy (9-1) at Lincoln Co. (8-2)

- Lincoln County's streak of seven region titles was ended last week with a loss to Wilkinson County. Lincoln County has won 31 region titles under coach Larry Campbell, the first in 1974.

- Lincoln County ranks in the top 10 of Class A in scoring offense (37.7) and defense (10.5). Pace Academy is outside the top 10 in both with averages of 33.2 and 19.5.

- Pace Academy is a 52-year-old school in Midtown Atlanta competing in its third season of varsity football. This will be its first winning season and playoff appearance.

- This will mark the first time that Pace Academy has faced a public school in football. Pace's 15-15 all-time record has been compiled entirely against private schools. The team has played outside of metro Atlanta once - a 26-6 loss at Athens Christian in 2008.

- Lincoln County has reached the postseason each season since 1974. That's the longest active streak of its kind in Georgia football.


Sav. Christian (9-1) at Mitchell Co. (9-1)

- This is one of two first-round playoff games that pair 9-1 teams. The other is Woodward Academy vs. Ridgeland in Class AAA.

- Mitchell County was one of four Georgia schools to drop into Class A with the 2010 reclassification. Only Mitchell and Charlton County made the playoffs. The others were Riverside Military and Macon County.

- Mitchell County is making its first playoff appearance since Baker County split from Mitchell-Baker High in 2007. Mitchell-Baker, which won state titles in 1983, 1989 and 1992, last made the playoffs in 2004 and won a region title in 1999.

- Savannah Christian, the 2009 runner-up, is ranked No. 1 in Class A scoring defense, allowing 6.5 points per game.

- Savannah Christian won seven state titles in the GISA from 1975 to 1984.


Charlton Co. (8-2) at Hawkinsville (8-2)

- These schools have won a combined six state titles since 1999 - Charlton County in 1999, 2004, 2005, 2006 and Hawkinsville in 2003 and 2004.

- This will be the first time that Charlton County has played a road game in the first round since the GHSA expanded the state playoffs to 32 teams in 1996. Charlton's record in those first-round games is 13-1.

- Charlton County is ranked No. 3 in Class A scoring offense at 40.5 points per game. Its defense (13.8) is ranked No. 17 among Class A playoff teams.

- Hawkinsville's 8-2 record marks its best regular-season finish since the 10-0 from its 2004 Class A championship team. Hawkinsville has not won a playoff game since reaching the quarterfinals in 2006.

- Charlton County has played and beaten Hawkinsville twice - 48-0 in 1996 and 16-6 in 1997.


Mt. Paran (6-4) at Athens Academy (9-1)

- Mount Paran, a private school in Kennesaw, is playing its third varsity season of football and first region schedule. Its records have been 2-7, 8-2 and now 6-4 under Mitch Jordan, who had been a longtime assistant coach at Darlington.

- Mount Paran qualified for the playoffs with a must-win, 34-27 victory over Bowdon last week. That ended Bowdon's streak of making the playoffs at 22 years.

- Athens Academy lost its opening Region 8-A game to Prince Avenue Christian but won five straight, plus a non-region game, to claim its sixth region title overall and first since 2007.

- Athens Academy has reached the state playoffs each season since 1997 and is 10-3 in the first round in that time. Its best finish was the semifinals in 2006.

- Athens Academy has played and beaten Mount Paran twice - 41-7 in 2008 and 30-14 in 2009.


Warren Co. (7-3) at Wesleyan (9-1)

- Wesleyan defeated Warren County 42-19 in the first round in 2008 and went on to win the Class A title. That's the only prior meeting between these schools in football.

- Wesleyan is 34-4 since dropping to Class A in 2008, the year of its first state title.

- Wesleyan won state titles in five sports in 2010 and has won at least two state titles each school year since 2002. Its boys cross country team won a state title this month for No. 1 for  2010-11.

- Warren County is the second-smallest school in the playoffs with 219 students, according to the GHSA.

- Warren County is 3-17 on the road in the postseason since 1970.


Terrell Co. (5-5) at Johnson Co. (10-0)

- Johnson County is a region champion (3-A) for the first time since 2005 and 10-0 for the first time since 2000.

- Johnson County is the only Class A region champion to beat another champion. It came in a 28-27 overtime victory over Wilkinson County (7-A) in the opener.

- Johnson County is averaging 40.1 points per game, fourth-best in Class A. Terrell County's scoring defense (21.9) ranks 29th among 32 playoff teams.

- Terrell County coach Vincent Huff endured three 0-10 seasons (2000, 2002, 2003) but is 41-34 since.

- These schools have never met in football.


Dooly Co. (8-2) at Wilcox Co. (9-1)

- This is one of two Class A first-round matchups that has a top-10 offense against a top-10 defense. (Trion-George Walton Academy is the other.) Wilcox County is averaging 39.4 points per game (No. 6), and Dooly County is allowing 9.5 points (No. 3).

- Wilcox and Dooly are the most familiar first-round opponents in any classification, as they shared a region the past 12 seasons. Wilcox leads the series 12-8.

- Dooly County made the playoffs with an upset victory over Region 4-A champion Marion County 14-9 in the last game of the regular season.

- Wilcox County is the defending Class A champion but has not won a region title since 2008. In 2009, Wilcox lost two regular-season games before capturing its first state title.

- Wilcox County has won 28 consecutive games in its home stadium. Its scheduled home game for the 2007 Class A title against ECI, which Wilcox lost, was played in Cordele.

In The News 
Wilkes resigns after three seasons at Shiloh, report says

Shiloh head coach Keith Wilkes has resigned, according to this report by the Gwinnett Daily Post.


Wilkes was 9-21 in three seasons at the Gwinnett County school that has not had a winning season since 2003. Shiloh was 1-9 this season. Wilkes had been a coach in North Carolina before coming to Shiloh to succeed Nick Davis, who is now the head coach at Riverdale.


TD Club to honor Conley, Smith, Gess

North Paulding wide receiver Christian Conley, Southwest DeKalb lineman Terrence Smith and Eagle's Landing Christian coach Jonathan Gess are the winners of the Touchdown Club of Atlanta's weekly awards.


Conley, the back of the week, caught nine passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns in a 59-49 victory over Lithia Springs. Conley has committed to Georgia.


Smith, the lineman of the week, had 12 tackles and six sacks in an Oct. 30 game against Miller Grove. Smith has committed to Florida State.


Gess, in his fourth season at Eagle's Landing Christian, led his team to a 35-28 victory against Wesleyan last week that gave the Chargers their first GHSA region title.


The honorees will be recognized at noon Monday at the Touchdown Club's weekly meeting at Fox Sports Grill in Atlantic Station. The guest speaker will be Georgia head coach Mark Richt. The program, sponsored by the Army, can be seen live at http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=iviy79cab&et=1103906762272&s=7936&e=001l33e_uV53ksIj7oMwZ1YSm_Qonp7rwNIBEGKg10FVToGIb6jUPc2rqUDfllamXSANhWjBiHkEhEtXPmZwqO2KI2zxbAf2ngZ4i-DMizXtoG-jcjh7VMf6GhElzrqhH0q1Qba5cqMXec= at 12:25 p.m.


Send nominations for players for the week to GHSF Daily at ghsfdaily@bellsouth.net by noon on Monday.
