Last I checked the AJC was a GA paper, and CAMDEN is a GA team. So for reggaeman and his criticism of “big mouth” CAMDEN fans, you can take that back down to south florida. CATs the whole state of GA is behind you tonight. I will be cheering all the way from Diego Garcia. Good luck to both teams tonight, and I know Coach Herron will have the boys leave it all out on the field. I have chills just thinking about this. GO CATS GO.

Yes Because us camden fans has class. But all I can say is St. Thomas Aquinas Welcome to Wildcat football!!!! What time is it “game time”!!!Where just getting our names out their in the nation, and we are gonna prove everyone in the state and the nation, what camden county football is about!!! A small town on exit 1 when you get in Georgia, the bottom of Georgia. To the state of Georgia we are gonna hold it down I guarantee that for sure!!! The only team I feel like can give CAMDEN compitition is Lowndes County!!! But thanks from you guys for the luck and i hope to see them in the future, i love me a match like that…but take one game at a time. But Camden Has another Championship team this year, but its all up to coach Herron with what he want to do with it, because he has the talent to do it!! Lets go Cats and lets bring this Victory back to Georgia, and put Georgia football on the map!! Where gonna show that Camden football is one heck of a program in the nation!!!

Camden County fans, just to give you a little insight. St.Thomas is not merely your average highschool team. They are a small college team. They will intimidate their as soon as you walk off the bus. They will put your team in the GYM prior to the game to see all the championship banners and alumni. 2. They will dress out 150 players, which is also a sight to see. 3. and lastly they have the best special team coach in the nation.

Listen to me. If any Camden County poster can clarify this one question: did Camden County stay in a hotel last night. If Camden was in a hotel last night, forget about St. Thomas Aquinas competing. Clowns like Reggaeman are talking crazy. The last time a top tier Florida team faced a top tier Georgia team, Miami’s Booker T. Washington got “violated” in Warner Robins, GA by Northside High School. The kids from Miami were a step slow and so undisciplined, it was like playing a bad DeKalb County program.

I do not by that a private school in Florida is going to have the athletes to slow down Camden County’s Wing T offense. I honestly believe that Camden County is going to win easily.

Camden County 28, St. Thomas Aquinas 17. :-) Go Wildcats! The Peach State KNOWS that you are going to represent us very well. By the way, the stadium is small because practically every top tier Florida program plays in a small stadium.

ENR, St. Thomas is not your typical private school, it sit in the middle of the hood, so they give scholarships to alot of under privileged kids that come from the area. Their team is gonna be like Miami Central but with the best coaching in Florida. That’s why they are always an elite team. There WR’s are top notch, but who wouldn’t be with Cris Carter as your WR coach. This St. Thomas team is young, but their top 2 WR’s are committed to Miami (#4 Phillip Dorsett) and Fla St. (#1 Rashard Greene) and their QB is committed to Iowa. So don’t stick them one on one, if you do it will be along nite. I think it will be a good game, but I can tell you one thing they won’t be out coached. Coach Smith is a top 5 coach in the nation, going for his 350th win tonight.

I try to tell them up here Bullnation, they don’t throw the ball up here like we do in South Fla, If St. Thomas can slow down the Wing- T this will be over fast.

Apopka a couple of years back ran the wing a little better than Camden does. St Thomas D makes it look like their running their wing in slow motion.. If Camdenn does not score here game over.
