Colquitt County will probably be the 2 or 3 seed in 1-aaaaa.I expect them to beat NSWR on Friday. If they are 3, they probably get to the quarterfinals or better. If 2 they have to play Camden in round 2 and that game could be a toss-up. Of course, if they win this week and Lowndes loses, watch out at number 1 seed they could go the distance. I am a lowndes viking fan by the way.

No, I’ve got a game Saturday at 2 i have to suit up for so can’t come back for the game. Prob wont be back in the Wood till Thanksgiving break. Though if ya’ll play Lowndes/Northside in round 3 i’ll be there. Pretty much any south Ga games in the playoffs i’ll come to .

Watch out for Parkview, their senior QB is back. Look at games before the Grayson game in which they broke his jaw….lots of points. Bad news for Brookwood this Friday. Only good thing going for Brookwood is home field advantage. Huge game this week for both teams. Winner is 4th seed and loser packs it up for the season. So McEachern should be concerned if Parkview comes back into early season form with their emotional and big play leader. Will be a tougher game than most will expect.

I hear that Stone Mountain and Lithonia has to forfeit some games due to playing ineligible players and the head coaches are to fired. This could be big, has anyone else heard this?

Pops…I’m still here!! I still have hope that a Harrison miracle will occur, and my Hoyas will land in the play-offs!! I don’t care if we play Grayson or Georgia Tech!! As long as we have one more week of football to try and salvage this disappointing season. Good luck to Woodstock and Peachtree Ridge! Two programs with alot of class!!

Throughdagrapevine its official:
Breaking news from Ga HS Football Daily
Lithonia, Stone Mountain assessed with forfeits
Lithonia and Stone Mountain must forfeit nine victories between them for using ineligible players this season, knocking both DeKalb County teams out of state-playoff contention in Region 6-AAAA, the Georgia High School Association announced today.

As a result, the winner of the game Friday night between Chamblee and Miller Grove will become the fourth and final playoff qualifier from the region. Southwest DeKalb, Marist and Tucker have clinched the first three playoff berths.

Stone Mountain, with had improved to 6-3 this season from 3-7 under first-year coach Dante Ferguson, was forced to forfeit victories over Miller Grove, Forsyth Central, Lakeside and North Springs. Stone Mountain’s victory over Lithonia has been declared a double forfeit because both teams used ineligible players. Stone Mountain record is now 1-8 overall, 0-8 in the region.

Lithonia, which had been 4-5, must forfeit victories over Forsyth Central, Chamblee, Miller Grove and Lakeside. Lithonia’s record now is 0-9.

The forfeits move Chamblee and Miller Grove (both 6-3 overall and 5-3 in the region) into a tie for fourth place in the region.

Chamblee would’ve earned the No. 4 seed in the playoffs anyway with a victory over Miller Grove unless Stone Mountain upset second-ranked Southwest DeKalb this week, but the forfeits are especially welcome news to Miller Grove, which picked up two unexpected victories.

The GHSA did not disclose why the players were ineligible. They typically involve violations of residency, transfer, age or academic requirements.

Sources tell GHSF Daily that Stone Mountain’s forfeits results from the use of a player who started the season at Lithonia and trasnferred to Stone Mountain.

Breaking news!!!!

Stone Mountain head coach is still on the job in spite of the forfeits. From an inside source, the coach and the school were given false information as to the residence of the player in question. When students register in schools, it is not the job of the school to physically check to see if registered students actually live at the addresses given during registration. They have to go on the word of the parents who register their children. GHSA did not fine Stone Mountain because the school and the coach did what they were supposed to do. It’s unfortunate that the first year coach had to go through this, but he and the program will be fine. I hear they will have a monster team returning next year!!

Keep your heads up, Pirates. They can take away your games through paperwork, but the victories on the field can’t be denied. You guys are on your way to the top!!!!

I find it ironic that North Springs had to forfeit their only win of the year but now they get a win due to Stone Mountain’s forfeit.

Piratefan – I find it hard to believe that the kid’s on the football team and the coach didn’t know where the kid lived. especially since he came from Lithonia during the season. This type of thing happens at all the school’s most just don’t get caught. It’s unfortunate!!!!

Most schools in the Metro Area do verify the residence of transfers to avoid what happened here. I believe their could be some legal trouble for the parents who falsified school documents.

I’m always here, I just don’t get into the back and forth many folks start here. E.P. hasn’t had the best year to date but I think that has to do with problems between the team and head coach from what I’ve been hearing. When it comes down to it I just want to see a good showing from our region against the rest of the state. Looks like that job is going to rest on McEachern, Woodstock, and Etowah this year.

How has Coach McDonald from Newnan been excluded from the “best new coach” discussion? Despite the fact that Newnan went 13-1 last year, they lost their QB, #1 receiver, tailback, and strongest lineman. No love for an undefeated coach who has overcome high expectations due to the celebrity status of Alec Ogletree?

There are many players who attend high schools that are miles from their homes. This problem is worse in basketball. Many people who comment on these blogs are aware of the problem.

Most schools require proof of residence, such as an electric bill or gas bill. No reason for the schools not to know where these kids live.

EP fans are still here…We are going to Woodstock tomorrow night to support our RAIDERS…

This was an EP team with a lot of promise going into the season but things for whatever reason didn’t gel this year. A mix of bad coaching calls (too many trys at running up the middle with an undersized
“O” line), not having enough seniors that stepped up and took charge on the field, bad clock management, not having a QB that could pass or for that matter that could run the team, and just a year with lots of juniors and underclassmen playing on the varsity squad that maybe will be a good lesson for them to bounce back next year from.

I agree with Hoya Chuck…it would be nice to play at least ONE MORE WEEK regardless who or where but realistically this is not an EP team that needs to go to GRAYSON and get a BUTT whipping. This is an EP team that IF they played like they did against McEachern could keep the game interesting but I am afraid it’s an EP team that will play like it did against Harrison, Cherokee and Etowah. If they went to Grayson and played like that…it would be an embarassment.

So it’s on to Woodstock and hopefully play a good game. The #4 seed in Region 5A is still a toss-up so it’s WAIT and SEE!!! I really don’t think Grayson cares who shows up from 5A they are ready and loaded over there this year again!

Its unfortunate about what happened at these two schools. I guess thats what happens when you try to 1) be competitive in our region and 2) keep up with the BIG THREE. We all know that parents want their kids playing for winners and would do anything to get their child with a group of winners. Those teams my not get a shot but…………………..
Worry about yourselves.

Greetings SportsFan31313,
I’m starting to think you really dont want to see our region to have success this year. Whats up with that?

Week 11 and a huge matchup in Warner Robins. Colquitt and Northside going toe to toe. I believe the Packers win this game and I am going out on a limb by saying this but, Colquitt wins 24-7. The rest of the AAAAA playoff teams will be put on notice. I said it 3 weeks ago, Colquitt has arrived back as part of the elite teams in the state.
Go Pack!

callitlikeitis. actually if NG should lose (hopefully not) there is a coin toss to decide who is the region 7AAAAA 3 seed because NG does not play collins hill and both will have 8-1 records and both will have lost to pridge. wouldnt that be a rough first round for region 6AAAAA #2 seed.
