John Edwin Norris – get a spell checker or go to a school where you can get an education. Your school obviously stinks in sports and education.

SWD will defeat Tucker and win the 2010 state championship. Too much talent, hard work, and coaching. Will be a hell of a game at Hallford tomorrow evening

1-22 stephenson looks like world beaters… big fast and athletic. tough early tests should pay dividend in the latter part of the season. additionally the region is better which is to the benefit of the jags… iron sharpens iron!!!

Well it’s the time of the year we’ve all been waiting on. As Saturday quickly approaches with great anticipation for my Forest Park Panthers under a new regime, as they take on Bannecker. Bannecker being one of the many teams that has taken advantage of the talent pool with in our city by recruiting. But it’s a new day, a day where Panther pride has returned. A day where Panthers defend there home with a tenacity never seen before. A day where we earn respect starting saturday. Let’s go mighty Panthers !!!

Can somebody tell me how Grady is this year??

I just recently had to move into the Midtown area, not far from Grady Stadium.I plan on going to their game tomorrow night (not even sure who they are playing). I know Damian Swann plays for Grady, and I know he is a highly touted recruit sitting on several offers. Other than him, I know nothing about the Grady Knights.

Tucker and SWD the makings of a good old fashion slobber knocker. Both these teams feel they are the Top Dog on the Block. Tucker looking to avenge last years beat down to SWD (0-26). SWD wanting to serve notice that they have reload (not rebuilt) their Team and the beat goes on. I pray both teams play at their best and no one gets hurt.

Mike, Boy you know you wrong for that….. Marist V/S Douglass. Give Coach Dallas 2years start back pulling the talent from Mays and the recruiting of TreTre and Jacquez. Speaking of Mays… Boy if we had those 11 starters on The Grady team…. I just take Swann,Caffey,Hawkins and Mays would be the Carver of Columbus of Atlanta. PSSS…
did I forget a couple in That GREEN and Gold on the way to another STATE Championship.

Small TOWN FRi. NIGHT…. The Hawkins kid #3 get no pub, but is the heart of team. They willn’t win State without him. (text) IDK why GA TECH hasn’t offered him… perfect B back.

drock10,
I hope your right about the Newnan/LaGrange score. While I’m a huge cougar fan, I’m concerned that this years team will be able to rise to its previous level without the Ogletree brothers.
Go Cougars

any thoughts about the carrollton v.s. oxford game?

Union Grove had some athletes last season and played our Eagles very well in a 21-10 second round AAAAA playoff loss. That should signal a reason to respect UG, which means that someone is probably going to get mercifully violated as the glorious Kevin Kinsler era begins at Northside. Northside is averaging over 33 points/game in opening games over the past 5 seasons. That suggests that it will be a long night for Union Grove. Northside (Warner Robins) 42, Union Grove 7.

Can anyone tell me about our opponent Pebblebrook? We host them tonight @ Lowndes. South Gwinnett gave us a very good game last week by making a push in the 4th Q. Should we expect the same this week?

Viking Girl…….You could probably bring your freshman team for Pebblebrook. Be carefull, they are known for throwing things at buses when they leave.

ok i think this every year but im just about sick of reading how stephenson has loads of talent and they always look like “world beaters”

Grady 56 McNair 6. Um giving them 6 because they may get a lucky TD in once the third and forth string players get in the game.

Everybody should be high on Buford……they’re like all the private schools…….”They (the “R” word)……Go Gainesville

glad to see they are putting emphasis on correct usage of the english language over in dekalb… haha and ya your right, because the one kid who most likely does not play at all put the n word on facebook means that every white person in attendance and on the field is a racist.

12:00 pm

MMMMMM……….your “R” word for all private schools is full of bull. If you can prove it please do. It is against GHSA rules. My kids go to private school and I can guarantee that they do not recruit.

Another Buford Title

August 27th, 2010
12:10 pm

John Edward Norris obviously has no clue bout how the GHSA classification are established …. FYI brother .. IT IS BY STUDENT POPULATION !!! Even if Buford wanted to be 5A, they do not have the population …. Get a clue or stay off the blog

As for recruiting, you don’t have to recruit when parents are making appointments to get their athletes in the program !!! And another question would be why athletes want to leave their current school to come over ? ……. HMMM ? Carver will be a HUGE game next week, probably the preview for the state title game

August 27th, 2010
12:11 pm

This is for Zack and Coach09…….Both of you need to grow up and quit feeding this racism crap no matter who started it. This game is about 17 and 18 year old kids wanting to go out and put on a show for their family and friends. STOP THIS NOW!!! Cheer on your team. Let the kids play.

Why dont I hear all of your SWD people talking about what happened last week at Peachtree? OHHH, I know why? You guys got beat. Was it because they are a 5A school? Tucker played one and decided that 5A meant nothing.
