The teams that lost their openers last weekend had to do so in a pretty bright spotlight, considering there were only about 50 games played around the state. Many will get a chance to recover in Week 2, although the stage will be a lot more crowded as the majority of teams kick off their seasons. Look for Cedar Grove, Clinch County, Colquitt County, Landmark Christian, Marietta, Peachtree Ridge and Woodward Academy to be among the teams bouncing back from opening-week losses.
