What we learned from Week 6 in AAAAAA: Camden is a worthy No. 1 … Parkview is back … Lowndes is legit

Five things we learned this week –

- Parkview is the front-runner in Region 8 – Beating reigning state champion Grayson on Sept. 14 was the season’s biggest upset. Beating Archer on Sept. 21 avenged a 40-16 loss from last season. But beating arch-rival Brookwood 21-14 on Sept. 28 officially stamped Parkview as ‘’back’’ and the team to beat in Region 8. Chris Carson rushed for 257 yards and two touchdowns. Parkview – state champion in 1997, 2000, 2001 and 2002 – has not won a region title since 2004. Until Parkview beat Brookwood on Friday, many felt Grayson would still win Region 8 by winning its remaining games. Now, Parkview would need to lose twice. Not likely now.

- Camden County is a worthy No. 1 team – If anyone thought Camden was ranked No. 1 by default after 2011 champion Grayson was upended by Parkview, the Wildcats showed otherwise Friday, routing Valdosta 43-6. It was Valdosta’s most lopsided in its historic Bazemore-Hyder Stadium since 1974, when Thomasville, led by a pretty good back named William Andrews, defeated the ‘Cats 40-0. This was Camden’s first game in Region 1 after years of dominating weak 3-AAAAA. Make that 87 straight region victories for Camden. AJC Super 11 halfback/cornerback J.J. Green ran the opening kickoff back for the first of his two touchdowns. He also had two interceptions.

- Lowndes deserved its Top 10 ranking – Lowndes had been ranked No. 4 largely on tradition. The Vikings were 4-0, but against what the computer Maxwell Ratings described as the fifth-weakest schedule in AAAAAA. They looked pretty good Friday in beating No. 8-ranked Colquitt County 17-14 in Moultrie. Lowndes used a long punt-return touchdown by Tijuan Lang to take a 17-7 lead in the fourth quarter and held on. It appears that Lowndes and Camden are the teams to beat in Region 1. They play until Nov. 2, the final Friday of the regular season.

- Norcross can take care of business – Third-ranked Norcross won a shootout with Mill Creek, 49-41. Norcross is seeking its first region title since 2008, and the coast is almost clear. The Blue Devils’ 5-0 start includes wins over 2011 region champ North Gwinnett, 10th-ranked Parkview and a Mill Creek team that entered 3-1. The second half is not so tough – on paper.

- North Cobb can take care of business, too – Sixth-ranked North Cobb is 4-0 for the first time since 2007, a season in which it briefly was ranked No. 1. The Warriors routed 3-1 Harrison 48-14. The title in Region 4 is far from decided, but North Cobb’s 49-14 rout of 2011 Walton a few weeks ago is looking more legitimate each week. North Cobb is averaging 48 points per game.

Valdosta played better than the score indicate. They were playing against the #1 team in the state and #7 in the nation. Valdosta did not win last night, but they never laid down and played for 48 minutes.

Mistermack

I don’t know what the h… you are talking about. No one is making excusing, but only mentioning the mistakes Valdosta made. Camden ran the ball well, but did not run it at will. When Valdosta made some good defensive stops. Six of Valdosta’s defensive starters: #4 cornerback (Sophmore), #30 linebacker (Junior), #29 cornerback (Junior), #99 defensive tackle (Junior), #38 linebacker (Sophmore), #34 linebacker (Sophmore), #22 safety (Senior first time player). So, you should not parade around like I have beat the Chicago Bears. I did say you and not Camden’s team, because I know they know better.

I was very impressed with the Wildcats of Camden County last night. The support that community shows for that team is amazing. How do you out number Valdosta,…at Valdosta? No fan from any school can argue that they aren’t deserving of their #1 state ranking. I saw a well coached, fundamentally sound football team on both sides of the ball. For years Camden has been mocked for their dominance of a very weak and over-matched region. I understood and even agreed with all the fuss, but I couldn’t help but notice Camden’s success in the playoffs (vs. Region 1 and others) and against out of state programs the likes of Hoover, Maimi Central, and Aiken,SC. That performance last night was a statement. Maybe the days of 77-0 scores are over, but 43-6 is just as dominant. People, they went to a “RUNNING CLOCK” at Bazemore-Hyder stadium to save the home team from further embarrassment! Worst loss at home for Valdosta since 1974? Nearly 40 years of football. I recall a storied program joining this region a few years ago after dominating lesser opponents for years by the name of Northside Warner Robbins. Their two year stint of “BigBoy” Region 1 football was an impressive 12-2 mark and instantly made me a admirer of their program and kids. It’s no suprise that both of those seasons ended with losses to the “they don’t play anyone” Wildcats of Camden.
So let’s put this argument about Camden being overrated and so successful due to an easy schedule to bed PLEASE….they have convinced me over the years and any remaining doubt was blown away the first 10.5 seconds of that game last night as J.J. Green took the opening kick-off back for a score! LOL….Wow…
Congrats to Camden on a great win, and welcome back to the party Parkview’s Panthers! This is going to be a great season of Georgia football!

@A Viking Fan -I know you don’t care, but I try very hard to support my fellow Lowndes county teams, but Vikings fans like you make it awfully difficult. Most of the Camden fans support their team wholeheartedly and support other 1-6A teams when not facing them. They are a lot easier to root for because of that. (That mistermak guy may be an exception to what I just said about Camden fans.)

@mistermac – On the post game radio show, probst claimed a former coach, apparently with another school(not identified), was stealing signs from the press box with binoculars and relaying them to Lowndes. Kept saying it was his fault for letting it happen. I have no clue if it was true or not but it was the poorest form of sportsmanshio I have seen from him via radio or tv. I could not believe he was saying it – made him look like a prick imo.

Mistermack those 3 juniors and the senior are playing for the first year. The Valdosta defense is very inexperienced, I’m sorry you can’t claim victory over a steller defense, but it’s just the truth. Just keep prancing around like you beat a steller Valdosta team, and the day will soon come when you walk off the field with your tails up your blue a….es. I doubt if you can win out in this region though with only four true players. Believe me as long as Camden stays in this region, they will have many days to lick their wounds. So, we aren’t worried about the trash talk. To dominate this region, you will have to field this same type Camden team year-in-year-out.

GMAN57, That was in 2010 and the final score was 28-18. Camden had 342 yards rushing. They scored 14 points in 1st quarter and 14 points in the 2nd quarter. The score was 28-0 at halftime. Started 2nd half with reserves and finished with reserves. Coffee scored 6 points in the 3rd quarter and 12 in the 4th quarter. Camden not scoring does not mean that Coffee shut them down. Looks like the coach called off the dogs to get other players some time. Camden is in a no win situation, they will never be given their just due, irregardless of region play. As I said before, they win and the other team is young and beat themselves, they lose and they cannot handle region 1. Well I saw a butt kicking friday night in Valdosta, the score could have been way worse, the 4th quarter brought on a running clock and removal of starters to get some playing time for the younger players. Class act by Coach Heron, if he wanted to make a statement, he could have left the starters in and ran the score to 50 or 60 plus, but he has to much class for that. Camden looks to still have some things to work on, but they are and will be formidable. Coffee, you will have your hands full come friday night. Say what you want, Camden will be ready, you can believe that. Yes there is a lot of season left, this is the fun time, Lowndes went into Colquitt and beat Colquitt, that’s a fact. Let’s stop worrying about the what if’s. These are the facts from friday, Camden won, Lowndes won and Coffee won, all region wins. No matter how or by how many, they are wins. Fact Colquitt lost, Valdosta lost and Tift lost. All 1 region game down.

YO AND 57CAT — I certainly don’t want to see anyone get beat 53-6, but that commit was mainly to rile up, in fun, my many Cat friends. But you do have to admit that Valdosta fans have ridiculed the Vikings since our school was created with the merger of Hahira High School and Lowndes County High School. Lowndes High School was built on my family’s farm, (the next year Westside also joined the new Lowndes High). Many, many Wildcat fans would love to see Lowndes lose 53-6 every week. I support and pull for all region 1-AAAAAA teams in all sports, but trust me, I admit I do not like ever pulling for Valdosta to win. I do it because of region loyalty, but I don’t like it. But you know what, none of us can cause a team to win or lose by whether or not we pull for them on these blogs. Wins are won on the field, by players and coaches. True, good fans are like a team’s 12th man. And all our region teams have tons of great fans. The 12th man on Friday night can indeed help a team win.

Good luck to ALL region 1-AAAAAA teams (except when you play Lowndes) and a big, big welcome to Camden and Brunswick! Let’s bring the Title back to South Georgia!

Highschoolfootballfan, mistermack I think you guys are somewhat slow. Nobody is saying Camden won because Valdosta had a young defense. Camden won because they had more points on the score board. I did warn to be to be careful of all the bragging, because you played against an inexperienced defense. If you just have to hear us say Camden is the greatest team in the world, then I will say it, this years Camden team is the greatest in the world. They just stumped mud into Valdosta.

I’ll admit I get more pleasure out of seeing teams like Coffee, Tift, and Brunswick win because it brings more respect to our Region. I get less pleasure out of Lowndes’ and Colquitt’s wins because I fear what that may mean to my Cats being successful against them. I can honestly say I pull for the Vikes except when we play them, but because of Propst I hold my nose when I pull for the Packers. As for Camden, they are class on the field, on the sidelines and in the stands.

lowndes will not have to stack the box to stop camdens run…….nobody is going to run the ball on lowndes……….colquitt had 20 yds rushing between both rbs……..lowndes has the speed to match camden……i honestly expect lowndes and camden to be one heck of a football game…….lowndes will eat up the clock with lil 3 and 4 yard runs,.,,,,and if they do that then camden will not get ball much……..it dont matter how good ramsey and green are if they are not getting but 3 or 4 possession oers half on offense…….should be another lownde and camden thriller………..i say camden has the edge right now bc of ramsey……….but that is why the game is played on the field………..lowndes had 14 penalties for 105 yds fri night in colquitt game………the game should have been 20-14 or 27-14…………lowndes dominated the game………rand for 235 yds against what is arguably th best defensive line and lbs in the state………..

colquitt county is still very good………and they have just as good if not a better defense than they had last year……….lowndes is a better football team than last year…..they found that out fri night………..the pack have not been beat in the pen in a long time……….and the pack beat jj green and brice ramsey at camden last year………

camden has their best chance to win it this year with brice and jj being seniors………..they will be good again next year but they do not have a jj green or a brice ramsey for next year so they will take a step back………any honest camden fan will admit it……

camden will still be very good next year…..they reload….they dont rebuild….but when you lose guys like ramsey and jj green and a few other studs that yall have….you just dont become better

there is a reason lowndes jv team is beating the crap out of region foes…….35-0 over valdosta–34-6 over coffee…38-0 over colquitt….32-6 i beleive over tift…all with running clocks in the 4th……reasson is bc lowndes jv is best group of kids that has come along at lowndes since reid…demps..telvin smith…etc……

lowndes had 3 seniors on the o line last night and 2 sophmores……..and prob our best rb is a sophmore…#4 ahmad brown…..

a lot of people expect a few titles in the next 2 -4 years at lowndes………getting about that time again..

looks like camden and lowndes will each go on another run of winning state titles again….i love it

Bksmith14 – The real test for the Freshman and JV Teams is the ability to play each other to determine who will be better. The amazing thing as you know, that great athletes in a program like Camden and Lowndes are so blessed by the incredible work ethics and drive around them. But as we all know that brings incredible success. Both Camden and Lowndes have incredible coaches who teach more than football. All of our players know that teamwork produces results.

BKSmith14 you have shared some great post lately and I want to thank Lowndes for taking care of Colquitt.

What people don’t seem to understand about football is that it’s a game of momentum and mistakes are going to be made.The signs of a good team are talent based to some extent but it’s also about the mental. Those drops by Valdosta were mental but thats a critical aspect of the game! STOP saying if this if that… I could say if Camden blocked better and if Brice had completed two more passes we would have scored ANOTHER touchdown. But we made mistakes and we didn’t…. End of story. Just like last year against colquitt…. If we hadn’t missed tackles if we had better pass coverage… Where will the ifs stop? Camden wasn’t good enough last year… End of story. No excuses. Valdosta made way too many mistakes but that’s the sign of a good team… Get better and cut out mental mistakes. Stop with the ifs… That’s part of football!!

If you have juniors and seniors that are playing for the first time, well then sounds like your coaches need to find a way to get them on the feild more often to get that experience. I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. I never said we would walk thru the region unscathed. We surely have a long road ahead and it will be fun to watch either way. All I know is for years we took it on the chin because of the weak region we played in, despite the fact that we had a pretty good record against Region 1 thru the years. We are moving on now to the next opponent so ya’ll should do the same. We will meet again next year, I wonder if ya’ll will bring the same crowd we did when you have to come to our house!!

The majority of the post on here is not how Camden won but how Valdosta gave the game away. I guess they decided to let J.J. Green run the opening kickoff back just because. Hey let’s throw a few interceptions to Camden DB’s because they are good player’s. Hey let’s let the fullback run free for 4 yards ever time he touch the ball. Every time we kick the ball off in the enzone I guess Valdosta’s weather had something to do with that. I guess the way our linebacker played all game, Valdosta just decided not to block him. I am trying to help the Valdosta excuse givers some more excuses. Again this is not to the Valdosta Fans who gave Camden credit for winning. Like I said in earlier post, Camden is coming to play each and every game.

The most important lesson whether you win or lose is to put the past behind you and press on towards the goal! These are young men pouring their heart and soul out on a football field for us to admire their efforts. If they make a mistake or 2 do we judge them for their inability to make a play or do we admire them for being out their do the best they can?

I believe these young men who play football do a better job forgetting about the past then we do. The young men go back to the Chalk Board(White Board now) and try to better themselves with hard work and dedication while we write post throwing mud at each other like we are the individual who are out their playing football.

When I was at Valdosta Friday Night I took everything in and just lived in the moment as every player, coach and fan should have been doing. I witnessed 2 incredible football programs with Valdosta Celebration 100 years of incredible tradition and accomplishments, We all witnessed a prayer to start the evening that helped remember the freedoms we have and the blessings God has given us. We heard the National Anthem to unite us in unison as we sang in honor of the Red, White and Blue.

We witnessed a game being played on a field of competition that again shows all of us that these young men are their to not just entertain us, but to help see their passion for the sport they love and are willing to sacrifice their time, efforts and energy for. How dare we criticize these young men for the mistakes they made when we ourselves would we like Bad News Bears playing out there or probably a whole lot worse.

I do love Camden County Wildcats even more than any team out there whether it be high school, college or professional. I do admire the incredible history and tradition of Valdosta High School and they stage one of the most incredible atmospheres in all sports.

My final thoughts for all of us is why don’t we thank these young men for representing our respective schools and communities. Thanking these young men means a whole lot more to developing their life long character than criticism.

The botom line in the CAMDEN/VALDOSTA game is Camden has the better team. I do think Valdosta could’ve helped themselves by catching some passes, but thats all part of the game. The 1 good thing for Valdosta is they have a 2wks to prepare for Lowndes. I said in the beginning of the season Camden would win the region this year, they are just loaded with talent. Valdosta will get better as the year goes on. I think the VALDOSTA/LOWNDES game will be a good game because of Valdosta’s familiarity with Lowndes and their personel.

I talked to some Valdosta coaches and they said “You can watch JJ Green on film, but until you see his speed in person, its hard to duplicate in practice!”

@ bksmith14 – That was a great win over the Pack for the Vikings. However, I wouldn’t get too carried away with the state title boast just yet.

1. The defensive scheme you used against the Pack is the same plan Valdosta has used against Propst for the last 2yrs. TAZ DIXON, your new D-Cordinator was the DB coach at Valdosta for 2yrs. We always used a blitzing type scheme against the Pack. Dixon has changed the Lowndes defensive scheme from a out dated 5-2 to a speed type blitzing multiple front scheme. Lowndes had no clue how to defend the Pack last year!!!! Dixon is doing the same thing he learned at Valdosta by schemeing to just beat teams with speed. That scheme will work if you have alot of experienced players on defense, just like Valdosta did last year.

I also think the addition of coach Lucas on the D-line is going to help Lowndes next year. Those were 2 big coaching losses for Valdosta that may come back to haunt the CATS.

GO CATS GO!!!!

I am glad to see coach Dixon doing a good job for Lowndes, but I am alittle hurt. 2yrs ago Mcpherson wouldn’t even give him a coaching job at the high school!!! Coach Gillespie gave him a chance to coach at the varsity level because of their Georgia Southern connection. I think the CATS might have lost another JOE WILSON to Lowndes!!!!

Camden playing in a weak region mess mainly came from the Atlanta area and the ajc. People in Valdosta area already knew that Camden normally field talented teams, its not like Valdosta or Lowndes have not played Camden several times before. Valdosta has beaten Camden, Camden has beaten Valdosta, Lowndes has beaten Camden, Camden has beaten Lowndes, and so on. So, nobody really by into the weak region mess. Coach Heron is an excellent coach, who will always have his team ready, and Camden traditionally play hard. I nor we are making excuses, but I am trying to say do not parade around like you beat a solid defensive team, or you will suffer the same fait as Grayson, that’s what I was trying to say without putting Grayson’s name in it. Camden played solid offensive football, I think they need some work on the defensive line, but they won it and deserved to win it. Rance Gillespie was brought in because Valdosta felt he could rebuild their program, and I think he is doing an excellent job of doing that. Valdosta has come a long way the past few years. A lot of Lowndes fans think we are just a bunch of thugs, and the ajc put an article in the their paper years ago with the title vanishing Valdosta. Saying they can’t wait til we fall off the face of the earth. I thought it was a rather cruel article for a group of high school kids out there doing their best. Lowndes fans continually claim Valdosta can’t compete in the highest classification, even though Valdosta won its region last year. The thing I like about Valdosta and Lowndes is that their players are not recruited, but are raw local talent and not on creatine (Atlanta area). Mark this post. Give Valdosta a year or two, and they will be right back into the hunt. These kids are really working hard to get better. I am sorry the Valdosta family will defend their cats against anyone or anything. No, we don’t thrive on, but we do love the tradition that has been built. Finally, I do think Camden will be this years State Champion, and they are an excellent team, with an excellent fan base.

I think Gillespie knows that, and has already made adjustments to his offense. You have to be careful about blitzing Valdosta. Coach Heron was really smart not to blitz all night. Valdosta has a number of receivers that is capable of catching the ball, and blitzing too much would have opened up some things for Valdosta. So, I thought it was really smart of him. Also, I have never witness a coach use his timeouts as affectively as Heron. When Valdosta got momentom and their fans got into the game, he would call a timeout.

@bksmith=Good job your newly aquired defensive coach because he did a good job of confusing our offense with timely blitzes just like he did last year when he was at Valdosta but your offensive coach did leave points on the field when he out smarted his self inside the 20 a couple of times by trying to pass.Lowndes is good i will give u that but and as far as saying Camden will take a step back next i really woudn’t think that way because like Lowndes they are a not just a football team,they are a program and programs have coaches who don’t wait till the next summer to find replacements for graduating seniors they get youngsters playing time as early and as often as they can.A football guy like yourself already knows things like this thats why i was surprised to read a comment like from u cause you are smarter than that.When Ramsey and JJ Green leave Camden will replace them with someone who may not be better but who will still be major factor for any defense to plan for, I mean Lowndes was just as strong the next year after Greg Reid and that talented group of seniors left am i right.I can’t say that Moultrie is a program because we just got a program building coach bout 4 years ago but Lowndes (coach Mac) and Camden(coach Heron) have been build your programs since they been their and have built some of Ga best programs i must say but congrats on the win friday and even tho i am dissapointed about the lost i do wish u guys the best the of the way and you know how it is come playoff time its us against north ga
