The RAIDERS from EP have Cherokee coming to “THE BONEYARD” this week and this will be the make or break week that “should” decide the final spot (#4) for region 5A playoffs.

Harrison plays Marietta in a game that I guess you could call a “toss-up” but the only hope EAST has for the final playoff spot lies in Harrison getting beat.

Harrison has Etowah next week and EAST travels to Woodstock so baring upsets in the final weeks games tomorrow night seems to be the 2 games that tell the outcome…Then the #4 winner gets the PRIZE of playing Grayson AT Grayson in the first round so want that be fun…!!!!!

In another BIG game the UNDEFEATED 8/0 Hornets of Hiram travel to Sprayberry 6/2 for a game that will decide the Sub- REGION champion of 7B AAAA!!!! For a Hiram team that only started playing in 2000 this is UNCHARTED WATERS!!!

Good Luck Hiram & GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!

You should add the Northwest-Dalton games to your “Games to watch” list. We’re projecting 15,000 people to be there, and it’s for the 7A-AAAA title. It’s going to be an awesome game. The Northwest/Dalton winner will play the Hiram/Sprayberry winner for the 7AAAA title.

Here we go Northside!! Tomorrow is the BIG night…

I also wanted to comment on a post from earlier in the week, being a smart *** and asking what channel is the game being televised??? Many NS-WR games have been televised in the past… and actually I was wondering WHY the Lowndes-Valdosta game was even televised??? Just because Valdosta won a heep of championships 20 years ago??? I mean really, come on… WINNERSVILLE???? LOL… I mean I do have to give props to Valdosta for being a great team of the past… but just remember Lowndes… the television station wasn’t there because of you.. but because of your red headed step sister… =) Have a great day!

If Tucker plays a solid game against SWD they have a shot at winning. I’ve been following this team for the past three years and know the strengths and weaknesses. The defense have gotten better since the beginning of the season. We lost the running ability of QB Chris Beck last year but have a better passing game with Norman Hayes. This game hangs mainly on the play of Tucker’s offensive line.

I’ll be doing the Hiram/Sprayberry clash for the Region 7B-4A sub region title. I’ll keep you in the loop as it should be an interesting and high flying football game.

Nice to see that someone out there noticed the play of Chris Beck for Tucker last season. He was overshadowed by all of the other “talent” on the field and received almost no publicity. But his ability to cooly run the offense without mistakes, make the correct reads/fakes/handoffs against defenses in money situations and break runs from the QB position were a huge key to the team’s success. He had a standout game vs Marist in the Dome and repeatedly gashed them for key 1st downs with his legs and his arm.

On top of that, he carried a 4.0 average. He is the prototype leader and student athlete.

West Point got a good one.

eagleforlife: I was the (to quote you) ” smart *** ” who asked where the game is being televised. Since you sidestepped and did not answer my question, the question still stands: Where will the game be televised? Maybe there are people out there who would like to watch it.

I also asked other questions that no one has answered yet: 1. How will the four teams share the MAC next year when Veterans High opens. 2. Are there any plans to build a new stadium? 3. Are the WR/Houston schools administered by one County Board of Education, or are there separate city and county systems?

Rather than rant on about red-headed stepsisters, can you please just answer my questions? There’s no diabolical plot at work here.

SWD vs Tucker

Both teams have outstanding speed but I believe SWD’s size and physical play will win out. Over 4 quarters their experienced seniors and lines should gain control of the game.

Tucker will have to play 4 quarters of mistake-free football and force some turnovers. And that opportunity may be there for them in the kicking game. SWD’s kicking game looked pretty bad on CSS last week. They will need to find that part of their game as they move into the playoffs. It becomes more important in terms of field position, because the teams you face get tougher every week.

My Predictions for this week as the regular season is beginning to wind down to a close

Pebblebrook vs. Westlake Take Westlake

Marietta vs. Harrison Take Harrison

Norcross vs. Peachtree Ridge Take The “RIDGE” Peachtree Rridge

Shiloh vs. Parkview Take Parkview

Chamblee vs. Stone Mountain Take Stone Mountain

Avondale vs. Lovett Take Lovett

Decatur vs. Blessed Trinity Take Blessed Trinity

Lassiter vs. Centennial Take Lassiter

Therrell vs. Carver-Atlanta Take Carver-Atlanta

Parkview’s QB back and able to play this or next week? Parkview will be a dangerous team if their senior is at QB.

Brookwood will lose to South Gwinnett making their last game at home against Parkview a must win. Number 4 seed from 8 AAAAA will go into playoffs with losing record. Will it be Brookwood or Parkview in week 11?

Goober……..Very good questions…….. 1. How will the four teams share the MAC next year when Veterans High opens….(Ans ) Hoco ,Northside and Warner Robins will continue to share the Mac and rumor has it Veterans will share the Field with the Perry Panthers……. 2. Are there any plans to build a new stadium? (Ans) Hadn’t heard anything ,If there is a stadium built ,surely it will sit south of Highway 96 ,all in Warner Robins will agree…..3. Are the WR/Houston schools administered by one County Board of Education, or are there separate city and county systems? (Ans) One school system ,located in the county seat of Perry Ga, not only the Warner Robins schools also the Perry schools… the HCBOE , better known as the Gestopo,because if you should ever voice a complaint or gripe you’re quickly escorted from the premises and never heard from again…..

MY COMMENT GOT EATEN!!

GOOF… sorry, I meant GOOBER- You always amuse me.. Thanks for making me smile!! =) I believe that you must be ENR’s alter ego!!

I am soo sorry that I didn’t answer your questions.. so here goes (1) I am not sure how the BOE intends to share the stadium, however I am sure that either HoCo or Veterans will get their own stadium before either NS or WR does.. because that is how it goes in Warner Robins.. (2) I am not aware of any plans to build a new stadium.. I haven’t heard anything about it.. but like I said.. I am almost certain that it would not benefit NS or WR in any shape form or fashion… =) (3) The game is not being televised that I am aware of.. {I am sure you already knew that… but just to make you feel better} it has been in the past however.. (4) We only have one BOE and it is in Perry.. Ok.. any more questions that I can help you with??? I will be happy to assist you.. and Thank you for giving me a good laugh almost daily.. hehe

Sportsfan31313: What is your pick on the Battle of Snellville (South Gwinnett vs Brookwood) & Buford vs Westminster?
cane fan: Fitzgerald to put something on the Albany High Indians that Oral Roberts, Ajax & Robert Hydrick can’t take off.
TJ: If Parkview wins out they are 6-4. If Brookwood loses to South & beats Parkview they will be 5-5.
Take Grayson in a big way over Idle.
Newnan to punish Mundy & their Mill.

To eagle and Reeze: Thanks for the info. Before I proceed, since I am on probation I must inform Hiz Honor the Blog Policeman that my following questions/comments do relate to football, as I hope he will be able to discern:

1. In all seriousness, will the game be available anywhere on TV or on the web? Many of us would like to watch it or record it.
2. Do y’all know yet how the new district boundaries will be drawn for the four high schools next year, and how they might affect the populations of WR, NS and HoCo? Does Watson Blvd. still divide NS and WR high schools?
3. Do you know what the expected population and Class (AA, AAA, etc.) will be for the new Veterans High, and where is it being built?
4. Both of you made comments that indirectly indicate some issues with the Board and the football teams / high schools / stadiums, etc. Care to elaborate? (provided Hiz Honor approves!)
5. It seems there are very few WR Demons posters on these blogs, especially compared to the enthusiastic Eagles posters (or in the case of ENR, RABID posters!). Where are the Demons?
6. What’s your prediction for the big game tomorrow night?

Good forture and health to both teams and may the officials call a good game.

84Viking- I look back at the records kept by both schools sites for this season and it looks like the Eagles defeated the Vikings. I think i’m safe when I say that team the Eagles THINK they beat was the one they did beat. When you see that 1 in the column to the right, think of us kindly. Its already been done, and odds are we wont play again this year. If we do, it will probably be different, thats the nature of football…its rarely the same. BTW, I REALLY enjoyed that game.

Go roswell !

October 29th, 2009
6:18 pm

Hey Sportsfan31313, were you afraid to pick roswell big over walton ? No problem; I will pick it for you. Also, the upset special on Friday night will be Centenial over Lassitter 34-27. I wish I could be at 2 places as I would love to catch the centenial Lassiter game(game is at Centenial). But I must attend the Roswell beatdown of Walton. First and 10 Hornets!!!!!

Buford wins BIG over the soft preppy westminister boys. and its a long shot for both lowndes and Northside to get to the finals and we havent even started playoffs. the likelyhood of that happening is very low. and most region 1AAAAA posters are assuming they will probably play again. both teams gotta win 4 tough rounds before that can happen

Goober- idk where the demon posters are.. I guess they aren’t as supportive of their team.. They have their tail between their legs. Also, the BOE just tends to favor the south side of town when money is the issue (that being Bonaire, Kathleen – hoco and vet. High districts) bc the money is centralized in that part of town and our kids suffer bc of it. Its ok though… We r used to it.

Wolverine: I am sooooooooo NOT surprised! Money talks! Oh well, Northside and Warner Robins are good with the Mac! We don’t need a new stadium even though we really need one. The county of Houston is extremely biased! I’m actually a little relieved that we don’t have to share with yet another school! WRHS and NHS need the MAC all to ourselves, let HoCo and VHS share the new stadium… I don’t care to drive 20 miles across town to watch a game!

I am having a hard time understanding why AJC has any interest in the game NG vs. Duluth with so many great games out there. This game might not be a blow out, but it should not be in close, either.

Unfortunately, this year’s Norcross seems to be a shadow of their former glory so Peachtree Ridge should have an easy contest. Perhaps Norcross views this as a line in the sand on the way to the playoffs, but I just don’t think they have the tools to mount a challenge this year.

BullDawgBites, ummm, I do not think anyone should ever hope for an injury to one of these high school kids. Our society places undue emphasis on football. We place the athletes on pedestals and some people spend hours and hours analyzing performances, discussing possibilities and predicting results. But they are still just kids. I hope that every single one of them does their best and stays healthy, so they can live productive healthy adult lives long after fans have discarded them as yesterday’s news. You have no idea how many former football players will nurse permanent injuries that are both minor and major throughout the rest of their lives. To go further and actually wish an injury on one of these kids, is just sick. Sorry to be so harsh, but I really cannot support that sort of sentiment in any way and I think your comments reflect poorly on your team, on Suwanee, on Gwinnett, and on High School football fans in general.

The P’tree vs North game at the end of the season should be an epic battle, and I hope that both teams bring their “A” game.

You are right SouthGA, I think Parkview can win out if Senior QB plays last game. If not Brookwood takes home game next week and goes into playoffs as number 4 seed at 5-5, they will not beat South this week. And 5-5 to me is losing record. South will surprise a lot of teams in playoffs if their defense steps up.

You Lowndes supporters must really be afraid of that 2nd round trip to Camden Co. I know you are still in denial about losing to Northside, but you’re not gonna back door your way into a region championship. Northside took care of business against you and will do the same these next two games. Stop what-ifing scenarios and start scouting Camden.
