I just hope our running game is working so we can keep Heinikee off the field. That and the kicking game is really important this week. He won’t pass so well, if we can keep him backed up against his end of the field. I also hope the rain moves on through and is gone by game time. Our turf drains really well.

Be safe Collins Hill fans traveling, and watch out for the blue lights handing out driving awards. Especially around Tifton and Adel.

EAST PAULDING goes to ATHENS and beats an undefeated & # 2 Team in the state to advance to play STARR’S MILL who advanced by beating Brunswick (an 8/3 team)…STARR’S MILL play’s in Region 3 AAAA which is the weakest region and attained it’s undefeated season by only playing 2 teams with winning records!!!

Yet the AJC predicts EAST to lose and touts the fact that EAST is playing ON THE ROAD and STARR’S MILL is at home…Scratch your head (and any other body parts you feel you need to) and ask yourself…Was it harder to play and beat CLARKE CENTRAL in ATHENS or will it be harder to beat STARR’S MILL in Fayetteville?!?!?!

Yeah I thought the answer would get clear FAST!!! It’s coming Panthers…the RAIDER NATION is heading your way!!!

TICK…TICK…TICK…BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!

GO RAIDERS!!!…ON TO THE DOME!!!!

One game at a time Burke Co Bears! A win is a win! Keep playing hard. Good job Coach Parker. Gutsy call last week! Way to rip Baldwin Co’s hearts out. Nobody outside of Burke Co is giving us much of a chance. All we want is one more time, one more game! Go Big Blue! Watch out Saints because the Bears are on the prowl! We pray that the Cedar Grove contingency has a safe trip from and back to Ellenwood!

A lot of people must not have seen the Tucker Tigers play this year, smh….I find it hard to believe there’s another defense in the state that has as much overall speed as the Tigers do, i could be wrong though…And oh yeah their offense is pretty good as well

Calhoun’s offense doesn’t need to come out flat. The D will be tried this week and they need to stay off the field all they can. I think it will be a shoot out between q-b’s, both D’s look to be strong against the run. If the jackets keep the long balls swated down and the seams closed in the flat with out losing the running game they should have no problem. If they don’t… It’ll be a long night.

Congratulations to a great Collins Hill team. Their Quarterback is one of the top 2 or 3 I have ever seen perform in high school. The Collins Hill fans were vocal, but gracious in their win. They are very classy. Their coaches had the team ready to play, and had a great offensive and defensive game plan.

I am proud of the Lowndes Vikings. As Todd Holcumb very accurately stated, this was not a typical Lowndes team. It could not just line up and run the ball down the field against a good defense. Yet we were able to score 28 points without barely even trying to pass the ball. (WHY??? – I guess in an attempt to keep Heinike off the field.)

“South Georgia” football failed miserably against “North Georgia” and the pain will linger for a long time. But the teams that won were really good teams, with some great athletes and coaches. What a great state we live in!!!!

I still plan on attending the finals in the Georgia Dome. I know I will see some great high school football. Again Congrats to Collins Hill and to all the winners.

I will be on the side for the rest of the playoffs, and will eagerly await next year. Goodbye fellow bloggers. Hope I see as many of you as possible at the dome. I will proudly wear my name tag “AVikingFan.”

See you next year!
