How about Peach County’s Defense? The starters haven’t been scored on through 5 games. This week, they held Westside-Macon to 25 total yards of offense.

Kamani Thomas might be the top 2013 RB prospect in the state. Kid has some wheels.

Newton High has a few special players…3 of the 4 returned as seniors from the AAAAA 4×100 state champ relay team. This whole team is fast, they beat us (Newnan HS) last week and this team is defntly under the radar.

Wheres the D??: Metro Atlanta football players do not like to tackle. This is why any objective fan will tell you that the state champion is going to come from south of this area. In areas like Middle Georgia, programs like Northside (Warner Robins) and Peach County (neighboring Ft. Valley) do not give up points and yards. Northside played it’s first 3 games giving up -1 total rushing yards. An early post mentioned how Peach County shut down 2 different top 10 teams.

If you like arm tackling and dancing around for a simple first down, watch what people call football in metro Atlanta (the worst major city for high school football in America). If you want to see games where RBs get hit, WRs crossing the middle get separated from the football, and All-State QB are pressured before they throw travel south, young man, travel south.

#18, on Newton is nicknamed “Waffle House” because he is supposedly “always open” but Jr. CB Deion Poythress (#29) of Newnan limted him to 2 receptions for 10 yds. Newnan has a great secondary (#28) So. S Tray Matthews had 3 picks against Newton. Newnan is playing their heart out. they wont go down without a fight

You want to talk “D” you only have to look at our EAST PAULDING RAIDERS…5 games into the schedule and the RAIDER “D” is allowing only 10.2 points per game!!! That includes games against 5 / 0 KELL & NORTH PAULDING who had put up 151 points in their first 4 games for an average of 37.75 per game before their visit last week to “THE BONEYARD”!!!

SPRAYBERRY this week gets a taste of RAIDER football as the MARCH thru 5NAAAA continues..
