Looks like Walton played some defense or the Woodstock offense is just very poor. Maybe a combo of both?

Printz has so many targets at Lassiter it is amazing. Seems each week someone else steps up when opposing defense take away his 2 big targets in Dickey and Jenkins. Be interesting what type of offensive stats they put up this year when they get to a game where they will need that offense going strong all 4 quarters…though they seem to have a very good defense that holds people in check. Or what type of numbers Printz would put up if they didn’t have the nice rushing attack and defense (I am thinking he would challenge Mason’s single season records).

Also, that is a lot of yardage in the Milton-Roswell game. Not quite as much as the West Forsyth-Alpharetta game, but the 2 Fulton teams did a lot of their damage on the ground it seems.

Lassiter plays Woodstock next week so that could give an indication as to whether or not Walton played defense or if Woodstock was poor on offense. My guess if if the Walton defense held Woodstock to 7 points, Lassiter will shut them out. Look for Printz to be watching from the sidelines in the 2nd half next Friday. Speaking of Printz, would like to see him run an offense like Boise State at the next level.

27 carries is still a big workload, but it is at least not the crazy # carries Jones was getting those first 2 games. I worry that kid is gonna get hurt. Walton needs to find some balance or Printz will be sitting in the second half on Oct 5 also.

Jones had/has a cast on his wrist according to the local paper this morning. Also, from the stats Walton has what appears to be a good QB to run their offense next year. Both Lassiter and Walton have “easy” games next week (Woodstock and Cherokee respectively) as long as neither team is looking ahead and take a W for granted.

The game on the 5th is a huge rivalry game, so you never know what can happen no matter how good or bad the teams appear to be heading into it. Also will depend on health and any discipline issues which it sounds like both of these teams had guys sitting out last night for these reasons.

Valdosta 31, Newton: The Valdosta football team improved to 3-1 with a 31-7 victory over Newton on Friday at Cleveland Field at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium.The Wildcats were effective on both sides of the ball Friday. Their offense ran for 212 yards and passed for another 82. Defensively, they gave up an 82-yard touchdown run to Newton’s James Hardeman, but limited the Rams to just 73 yards of total offense and no points the rest of the game.“I thought we did some things really well,” Valdosta head coach Rance Gillespie said. “It was really kind of along the lines of what we expected, as far as the football game went. We let the ball get out on us on that one touchdown, and that was disappointing, and we still had a couple of drops. But other than that, I thought we played a lot better. I really do. … I can sit here and name the individual plays that we were disappointed with. That means, for the most part, we did some good things, we really did, and we were able to move the ball. And we were able to stop them.”Valdosta running back Malcolm Joseph had his biggest game of the season on Friday, rushing for 136 yards on 24 carries and scoring three touchdowns. Joseph took on an increased role Friday because fellow running back Nelson Herring had a minor injury and was limited to just six carries.The Wildcats put the ball in the end zone on their first possession, driving 44 yards in six plays. On first-and-goal from the Rams’ 7-yard line, Joseph took the handoff, the right side of the Wildcats’ line opened up a hole and Joseph ran through it. A defender met Joseph at the 3, but the junior running back muscled his way out of the defender’s grasp and ran into the end zone for the

The Lowndes Vikings cruised to a convincing 57-0 homecoming win over the Hardaway Hawks Friday night at Martin Stadium.  Six different Vikings scored touchdowns on the night as the Lowndes offense racked up 457 yards of total offense, 358 on the ground.  “We played well,” Lowndes head coach Randy McPherson said. “It all starts with the O-line, they had a great night. I am very proud of them.”Nick Burgman scored two rushing touchdowns, while Jerome Daniels finished the night with a rushing and receiving touchdown, both of which came in the second quarter.  “There is no I in team,” Burgman said. “It is a good thing when you have multiple running backs that can run and score. We all practice hard Monday through Thursday and on Friday, we all come to play.”Ahman Brown recorded a game-high 118 yards rushing on just five carries. He  also found the end zone, scoring on a 50-yard run in the second quarter.Two of Lowndes’ touchdowns came through the air. Both Viking quarterbacks tossed touchdowns on the night. Seth Carlo connected with Kenny Moore on a 38-yard touchdown in the first quarter to put Lowndes up 13-0. The Vikings converted the two-point conversion on a Burgman run to go ahead 15-0.Alex Stephenson got into the action with a touchdown pass to Daniels in the second quarter, connecting on a 38-yard pass off a wheel route. The Vikings led 29-0 after the score.Carlo’s touchdown pass was his only throw of the night, while Stephenson completed 3 of his 4 passes for 61 yards. Neither quarterback has thrown an interception this season.Defensively, the shut out is Lowndes’ fifth in its last seven games — not including the Vikings’ 52-0 win in over Thomasville in this year’s preseason scrimmage.The Vikings dominated the Hardaway offense, holding the Hawks to just season-low 58 yards on 43 plays (a 1.3-yard average) on the night. Of the Hawks’ 10 offensive possessions of the night, eight resulted in punts“This is a team without any super stars,” McPherson said. “This is just a team.”Lowndes dominated the entire game, especially the first half. The Vikings scored on six of their seven first half possessions to build a 43-0 lead at halftime. The Vikings racked up 328 first half.“We were talking in the meeting room, I talked with the whole team and I was saying ‘last week, we underestimated the opponent,’” Burgman said. “We practiced hard and we just had to come out, play hard and have fun.”Burgman opened the scoring with a 63-yard run just four plays into the game. Then Carlo connected with Moore on the 38-yard passing touchdown, which was followed by Burgman’s two-point play. Lowndes led 15-0 just over four minutes into the game.On Lowndes’ third drive, Brown opened up with a 50-yard run to set up Daniels’ 7-yard touchdown run that gave the Vikings a 22-0 lead. Then, Stephenson connected with Daniels for their 38-yard passing touchdown to give Lowndes a 29-0 lead.The Vikings scored on their next drive behind a 50-yard run by Brown, his fifth rushing touchdown of the year. After a fumble by Tevin Orr ended their next drive, the Vikings capped off the first half performance with a 1-yard touchdown run by Jordan Williams, which made the score 43-0. Williams’ touchdown run was set up by a 63-yard punt return by Tiquan Lang.With a running clock in the entire second half, Lowndes scored on two of its three second half possessions. Burgman pounded the ball into the end zone on the Vikings’ first drive of the third quarter, closing out his night with a 5-yard TD run.After another Hardaway punt, Arvin Berry found the end zone on a 1-yard touchdown run, capping Lowndes’ scoring on the night.Lowndes opens region play next Friday with a visit to Colquitt County at Mack Tharpe Stadium in Moultrie. The Packers were idle Friday night and members of their coaching staff, including head coach Rush Propst, were seen sitting on the visitors’ side of Martin Stadium Friday night. The Packers beat the Vikings 34-7 last year.“Last year, we didn’t really play too well,” Burgman said. “We just have to play hard this week and play hard every play…Each game we play we always use it as a game to win a championship.”

Blah, Blah, Blah… Why are all these other schools ahead of NCHS? North Cobb is the solid package. How many schools have recievers like Borshade and Miller, backs like Herod and James, and kickers not just willing, but that make such solid tackles as Borduin and Medina, that 18 points (realestically 21) are denied to the other side? At some point NCHS is going to have to be regarded as a serious contender. Any team that has out scored their oppenents 148-27, when one of those opponents is ranked 3rd in the state, has got to be rageded as a serious contender. Come on AJC get a GRIP!

I’m a die hard VHS Cat, but honesty I see us getting embarrass this Friday especially if we keep makingall these penalties which comes from being undisclipline. I offense line can’t pass block and our passing game is very weak this year and very surprise about that. I love my Cats but we have took a step down from last year and i just don’t see us doing much in the region this year, and i just knew our offense would be the best in the region this year, but its not that goes to Camden by far.. I’m an realist.

As a LOWNDES viking fan, i agree with reggaeman. At this point with all the mistakes made by Colquitt, Lowndes and Valdosta in the beginning of the season against inferior teams, no-one but Camden has stepped up and said we are the team to beat. Forget the rankings, they don’t count in HS playoffs. Still delighted to have Camden in the region. Had rather play them in region than in the early rounds of playoffs.

colquitt county beat lovejoy……held them to 7 points……they beat tcc who is much better than i thought….the same tcc team that beat tift 34-14…..they also smashed carver 33-0…….granted carver is not the team they have been before…..and it took a last second filed goal for them to lose against north gwinnett…..

Lowndes hasnt made any mistakes as far as i am concerned other than coming out dead a few times…but that happens sometimes when you know youi can cruise past the weaker team you are playing

lowndes is 4-0 and has outscored the 4 teams 176-11 over those 4 games….with 3 shutouts….

colquitt is the team to beat in this region……if lowndes wins fri night at the hogpen then that will all change……..

if the game were at lowndes and we had 2 weeks to prepare and rest then i would pick lowndes….but i am goin to give colquitt the edge in this game ….they are battle tested….we will be after fri night….after fri night….win or lose for lowndes….they will only be better

If Lowndes plays extremely well against Colquitt’s passing game, we have a good shot at winning. Not too worried about their running game. Lowndes defense is built at stopping the run. Too much speed. We have to play Lowndes type football Friday night if we want to win. But Lowndes secondary is questionable??

I don’t see how we can possibly beat Colquitt Friday night. Their early season schedule has been tough, and I hear they are still healthy and ready to play. And they were off last week. Their coaches came over and watched our game. We are young and getting better. And yes we have a lot of speed with our RB’s and on defense, but we are very small compared to championship teams, especially on the line of scrimmage. Our center/qb exchange still needs work, and our long snapper leaves a lot to be desired. The kicking game is really looking good however, but neither of our qb’s are stepping up like we need one of them to do. We put one of our big OL-man on defense last week to get experience there, because we really need more size to stop good teams and their running games.

Ya’ll know I love Lowndes as much as anyone but I’m just telling it like I see it. I do think we can beat Valdosta at Blazer Field, but Camden and Colquitt are probably better than us. So, that should put us as the 3rd seed from our region.

Lowndes has shut out 5 of its last opponents going back to last year, and that includes the mighty mighty Stephenson. And as long as we keep that up we still have a chance to be really good. We’ve got some really good kids on the team this year, and they will give it their all. But Colquitt scares me this week. It will take a mammoth effort to beat’em at the hog pen, but hey, stranger things have happened.

i see a much closer game….but gotta give colquitt the edge……at home…2 weeks to prepare…..and are battle tested……..

hey anything can happen……..lowndes has a lot of speed and i think we are pretty good….

Mama — high school sports can be quite dysfunctional

Understand that the schools must hire full time teachers or employees so there lies your limited talent pool considering that many good coaches , real coaches , can not be hired .

Dont know the Centennial situation first hand but it sounds tough . I would ask for s sit down with the head varsity coach and face to face express your candid concerns . For now for next year . Dont settle for something like “you got to trust us ” or the like as you have already seen that .

Do give these coaches some time if they are sincere about improvements . If it seems impossible then do what you got to do and move out of the school or quit throwing good money after bad by staying around , Good Luck to you and your son .
