Is the balance of power finally shifting in Georgia’s largest classification for high school football?
South Georgia teams have ruled in recent years, winning 6 out of the last 7 state championships in Class AAAAA. South Georgia was expected to be a top contender again this year with both Lowndes and two-time defending state champion Camden County. However, both have been eliminated in earlier rounds of the playoffs and Colquitt County is now the South’s last hope for 2010.

Is this year’s playoffs a fluke? Or is the Atlanta area about to have a dominant reign in Class AAAAA? The other three semifinalists are Brookwood, Grayson and Collins Hill.
What do you think? Is the North finally taking control of Class AAAAA? Or is this a one-year wonder? State your case below.
Note: In this particular post, we’re only talking about the state’s largest division.
