Well congratulations to Grayson, Gwinnett County’s last remaining team in the hunt. When you have a freight train rushing for 3 tds and handling things on D, they will win the State Championship. NG, nice way to stake claim to another Region 7A title….can’t win the big one

NG, great game and great team!

Pack ran the ball ALL NIGHT! Why?

Because they respected your pass rush, respected your DB’s
and respected your offense and wanted to keep them off the field as much as possible.

Our O didn’t play that well. We did just ENOUGH to win.
Our D was the DIFFERENCE!

Keep your HEADS UP! Ya’ll have a great coach and program.
You also have young men who play with HAERT to the END.

Showed alot of CHARACTER and CLASS!

MADDBALL you missed the point, I’m not saying they can’t play I’m just saying to beat CAMDEN they will have to throw the ball, because you won’t run on our defense,last but not least two great teams playing for all the marbles.

Congrats to MLK win over Brookwood! That MLK team has got to be the “Character team” of the year. They always dig deep when they’re behind to claw back into a game to win. The officials really need to let the kids play. With a school name MLK in Ga. they’re already at a disadvantage. So many calls went against those kids last night it was sad to witness. Clearly they had a safety, the were on the 1″ line and got 2 calls against them that forced them back. It would’ve been a blow out if the officials didn’t keep Brookwood in the game.

Congrats to North Gwinnett on a fine game. The little dawgs never quit. BUT…the Blackhat Defense of my poor, tiny, little, undersized Hawgs…stole the show. I just wanna type it outloud…soes there’s NO misunderstanding…

We never liked Camden. And that would be NEVER with a huge “N”.

Walton

it’s true that Walton has not played a high caliber opponent yet, but there’s nothing they can do about that…you just play the team on your schedule & go from there.
Newnan upset Valdosta & then Dacula upset Newnan. That’s not Walton’s fault. They’ve taken care of biz by beating the snot out of their 2 opponents & now we’ll see if they can continue vs Dacula. They are a very strong team: balanced, on Off, great D, well coached & at home again. It would be a very big upset if Dacula beat them but it’s certainly possible. We’re talking about 17-18 yr old kids.

Just like the old Valdosta teams….West is using the parks system to get these kids up to speed! Great win for a young program. Tough game next week but a bunch of disiciplined football players with good coaching can accomplish the world!

I’m glad I wasn’t the only person that saw how the officials tried to take that game from our kids. From the safety call, to us being penalized for Brookwood’s band making noise. All that hidden racism is getting old. I too agree, please review the tapes, and do better in the selection of the officials for next week’s game. Please and thank you.

@Rufus: Just asking here, but why have you “NEVER liked Camden”?

Watched the NG and Colquitt came on GPB last night and really enjoyed the work that each team put forth. I really wished that Camden were in a better region so that we could play the better teams in the state like those two! Thats the reason we play out of the state… no competition within our region. Either way, I’ll be there Friday cheering for the ‘Cats!

@maddball
First thing is Colquitt is no underdog and has always had playoff caliber teams. So nobody from Camden is trashmouthing your team. We probably watched some of the best games that I have ever seen when Camden has played Colquitt, Lowndes and Valdosta. This one should be no different.

@ Rufus
I didn’t expect NG would like Camden after the last visit we made to your house. But no one has said anything to offend you – just tuck the tail and live with it. Colquitt has always played hard nose football like they did last nite at your house. So live with that.

For those of you who do not know Rufus from the vent…

He always says that he NEVER likes the team that we are playing the next week. FYI, he liked Camden this week. Usually his dislike starts on Sunday evening, but this week, I guess since it is the playoffs, he is starting a little early.

Go Packers!! Beat Camden County!

i dont know who put these brackets together,,,but from looking from the left side,,,it was designed 2 just have 1 south team in the title game…the toughest s.teams are on the left,,,,making us having 2 play each other…so how i see it either cc or cc will be the only south team in the title game providing if either 1 make it there.thats pretty good since its only a hand full of s.teams anyway copared 2 the north teams

MLK NOR GRAYSON WILL WIN STATE THIS YEAR…………..i am not saying thsi bc lowndes lost either…………….lowndes should have lost……………we are young and were 8-3 going up against grayson at home and they are 11-0 ………………….i wd not have been suprised if we wd have won but i felt like we were to young to go up there and pull it off and i made that clear…………….we will be back next year but lowndes return to dominace will be year after……………i expect another solid year next year and we will make playoffs again and be good……

grayson has to rely on #1 to much and before its over they will lose…………bc lowndes is not a passing team and really for the most part we passed all over them at times and guys were wide open and if we had a better passing qb we wd have had two more tds at least……………we still had a chance at end of game to go down and score and try and tie it up

mlk beat brookwood……………..and had to do that in overtime…………….good win but much tougher competition awaits

grayson will lose……………guaranteed if not next week week after
