Looking forward to the new revamped Forest Park Panthers getting a fresh start against Chattahoochee tonight. Go FP Panthers! ! ! I believe in you no matter the outcome. Way down in the valley I heard a loud noise it was the Forest Park panthers making men out of boys !!!

We will welcome the hogs to the Jackets Nest tonight and see if we can “Sting em” like we did T’ville last week at their place. Of course, Colquitt Co. has more than a thousand students in school than we do but we will give them a good run for their money tonight. TCC has 8 returning starters on defense so we are far better equipped to take on the Pack’s air attack tonight than we were last yr. If Choice and Cooksey can get a crack or two and be off to the races, then we have a legitimate chance to start out 2-0 tonight.

Thomas county central has about as much chance of beating colquitt county tonight as i do winnin the lottery…….but that does mean you have a 1 in a million chance…..colquitt rolls the jackets in the mud……..38- 17

@Coffee Trojan 44 – We’re going but won’t be there until about 7 or so. From what I’ve heard around town we may have more fans there than Ware. That’ll be something new. Good luck to all the 1-6A teams tonight. Best of luck on staying injury free. Drive safely everyone.

GO TROJANS!!

I just checked the ESPNU broadcast of the Grayson/Miami game. In Douglas on Mediacom it is going to be broadcast from 11:30 – 2:30 tonight. I don’t know if that’s delayed or live. I didn’t check game time. At least most of us should be back home to see all but the first few minutes. That’ll be fun. Good luck to Grayson. It would be good for the status of Georgia high school football to have a legitimate national #1 team

I’m disappointed ESPNU is showing the game on a tape delayed basis! What the heck, it’s the two number one HS teams in the nation, according to the polls. Now if you believe in your own polls, the game should be a LIVE broadcast! IJS! :-)

coffeefan44 I wont be at the game but I will be listening to it and chatting on the AJC forum….dude…..coffee is going to get their 35-45 pts per game just hope their d will mold/ gel….Pruitt is a offensive genius……I dont think their is a team as good as some of the Bufords Fitz has played and Coffee has more to choose from and better coaches …….so he will handle his bennissss.

The Grayson-Miami Central game will be on tape delay at 11:30 pm EDT/10:30 pm CDT. I think that’s really screwed up!

Flowery Branch is about to get “Peachtree Ridged” tonight. I am about to leave Midtown to make the drive north. Go Big Blue! The last time that watched my beloved Eagles live, we were choking away another state championship. Practically everyone (except the QB) is back. I fully expect a message to be sent across the state by the Big Blue on the road tonight.

I hate long trips. I believe it takes away 10-14 points. Therefore, I am predicting a Northside win in the 42-7 range. IT’S GREAT TO BE A NORTHSIDE EAGLE! :-)

@Coffee_in_VA: Let’s not have any excuses if yet another Region 1 South Georgia program gets cracked this weekend. The Colquitt County people have gone silent. Of course, we all know that programs like Colquitt and Coffee are notorious for losing to the North Gwinnetts. Coffee is 2-8 vs. Ware County. Let’s take a little pill called reality and keep our expectations under control.

I know people in Coffee are excited about Coach Pruitt. You should take a long look at his body of work at Warner Robins HS. He broke an almost 30 year run of post season appearances for the Big Red and ran back to Fitzgerald as fast as he came into town. With the lives of Camden County, Lowndes County and Valdosta in the region, look for the excuse thread to start as soon as tonight.

Want to clarify – Those 15 games are those I just happen to think are pretty interesting. We hope to find info on any game that’s interesting tonight, not just those 15.

But we should have lots of Grayson-Miami Central highlights here. Stay tuned.

@eaglenationrising : You bring up a excellent point and yes a 2-8 record vs .Ware County why i would be so excited .. Winning is earned not given and in order to begin to win you must have heart , this year i feel Coffee has the heart to win and a coach that bring that fire too a team that has lacked the fire to win for years … Go Trojans !!!!

What happened to the Miami Central-Grayson telecast at 7:30 on ESPN3? I thought I read earlier in the week it would be on there, but I don’t see it listed on the ESPN website.

Lassiter is up 6-0 on Hillgrove. #20 ran an INT back 72 yards for a TD.

I don’t see Hillgrove keeping Lassiter under 30, but it’s early.

Lane Jackman scored on about a 15-yard run for Lassiter, 13-0 over Hillgrove. I think the GPB stream is 30 minutes behind live.

E.Printz was 3-for-3 for 44 yards on the scoring drive.

Don’t worry, I won’t be w/ the Lassiter-Hillgrove game all night. Just happens to be one of the few that’s going on at the moment.

I really like Lassiter this season. Tough to stop a QB who’s this good when he has so many weapons – Jenkins, Dickey, Police, etc. …

OK, two random comments before I try to check out Grayson -

Players are shading their eyes from the son in the Lassiter-Hillgrove game. That shouldn’t happen in high school football. It’s supposed to be Friday night lights.

Jep Irwin looks a little like Randy McPherson, fwiw.
