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.

How does Parkview defeating Brookwood get top billing when the so called number one team in the state is playing? :-D

I’ve got one thing to say: Camden is the real deal. No excuses, no alibis; we were taken to the woodshed by a well-coached, disciplined, and very talented team. Camden-Lowndes is shaping up as a titanic showdown.

Lassiter looked sloppy in a 30-7 defeat of Woodstock. Top 2 receivers did not play. Hopefully healthy for Walton next week. Game was a flag-fest. Lassiter had 2 long gains and a long touchdown wiped out by penalties and had an interception inside the 5 when Printz threw short to a wide open receiver in the endzone. Game was close midway into the 4th quarter until a touchdown run and interception return for TD put the game away. Lassiter may have been looking ahead to next week but Woodstock is a much better team than a 0-5 record would imply. Combined record of the 5 teams they lost to is something like 18-2.

Two underrated and underappreciated teams in AAAAAA are West Forsyth and Johns Creek, both undefeated and very impressive with their offensive execution. Both are exceptionally well coached and get every ounce of effort and ability out of their teams. They play this Friday at West Forsyth. Should be a good one.

North Cobb is the real deal this year…look for them to repeat the 07 season and finish the reg. season 10-0, and to make a deep push in the playoffs again. At the end of the reg. season look for the Warriors to be sitting pretty a top the polls. Look out Camden here come the Warriors. Fear the Spear!!

What we learned tonight was the fact that even though Colquitt Co. has the toughest schedule in the state, it doesn’t matter when you run into a squad that hasn’t really played anybody but can still play when it counted!! So, maybe Coach Mac knew what he was doing scheduling the lesser teams. Lowndes defensive unit came to play tonight. I believe #4 Lowndes moves up in the Rankings to #2 behind #1 Camden Co. The last game of the season for both squads will be a National Televised Showdown that could very well decide the Region 1-AAAAAA Title!! They know each other very, very well.

Should the rest of the state be worried?? I think so….Grayson is the only threat in North GA. and they own Lowndes!!

#1 Camden Co.
#2 Lowndes

@57 cat: i was at the game. what had happened is, lhs defense shut down that high power offense and rush dont know what to do but cry cry cry. it is pathetic that his ego caused him to take all the attention away from the 50+ kids who played in the game(both teams) and played their hearts our and left it all on the field. he is a disgrace to the spirit of high school football. he says he will protest b/c he thinks that the tcc coaches on lhs sidelines were stealing his staff’s signals and calls and helping lhs figure out his gameplan. get real dude. why would tcc care so much about lhs football? they have their own program to run. besides, if his calls/signals are that easy to figure out, maybe it was actually our danceline or tuba section that figured them out and relayed it to our coaches. bottom line, our defense DOMINATED his somewhat talented but severly poorly coached offense.

Keep watch for Milton.. Team looks like a powerhouse. Strong offense coupled with a dominating defensive line and strong secondary that this week denied Wheeler’s passing game to the point where they couldn’t get anything going. Lassiter and Walton are in for a big surprise.. Count on Milton to creep up on everyone this year. Not to be taken lightly.

Re: Lassiter…

I assume Dickey and Jenkins were out? Injury or other reasons for them being out? From scores it would appear both Walton and Lassiter were looking ahead though Lassiter turned it on late.

Re: Milton…

They have the talent but have never shown the ability to put it all together over a full season. We will see though.

Lassiter Trojans are over-rated. They won’t stop lowly Walton this year. For me, it starts at the top and works like Reagan’s policies…trickle down economics but in this case, it’s drug use. Obviously it’s a big sign that poor leadership exist at the AD position. Besides recruiting (oops sorry that’s not allowed) football players and they have a great coach, their basketball continues to struggle. Good Lord, they almost failed to field a varsity women’s basketball team last year. It all starts when the yankees come down from NJ and start throwing their weight around and ruining the junior program which used to be well managed about 10 years ago when good people were in charge. Not only are the students suffering from poor leadership, mainly Art O’neil, but they continue to overlook mass use of marijuana throughout their programs. There are good kids in the program but unfortunately the bad kids continue to be allowed to play and spread their mischief throughout the school. I know now that I will not allow my children to attend a poorly managed school. If you live in this district and I’m specifically talking about Lassiter, do yourself a favor and send your kids to private schools. It’s a scar you shouldn’t have to put your kids through. If you have children coming up through the junior program, get out asap or you may find yourself locked into the “turn you head” self destructive behavior that encouraged because it is occurring in plain sight…yet all administration decide to ignore it and not make the pot smoking kids face some real consequences. Ask them…10 to 1 they’ll tell you the drug problem is common in all high schools and it’s not just them. It’s not as bad in Guyton, Athens, Valdosta and normally when it does rear its ugly head, strong ADs chop it off immediately. You won’t find that at Lassiter. Ask yourself now…Do you want to hear excuses and have your kids suffer because you failed to act on accurate information. You may be asking yourself, this guy/gal has an axe to grind…yeah it’s called being Godly. I’m blogging now so hopefully a lot of parents hear about this problem and either force change or remove your kids from this school district. Please don’t allow the administration at this school to take your family down. These are the facts and if you don’t believe me…ask around for yourself. Fair warning and I hope a lot of people come across this post so we can save our precious kids by changing the way Dr. Richie manages their program.

Its’ good to speculate, and all of this makes for some very juicy conversation….but there is still a lot of football left to be played. I’ve seen Camden play and they’ve been very impressive. I saw Grayson play, not so much…..it seems the team lacked a lot of playmakers. Of course I’m going to root for Lowndes because their the hometown team, but truly only time will tell who will left the state championship trophy. I think all of the aforementioned teams are good, but maybe none are great….once again late November will be the determining factor. That’s why you line-up, and strap up…..may the best team win.

There are so many things wrong with that comment I don’t even know where to start. Comparing the way Lassiter’s School is run to Ronald Reagan? Where in the world did you come that? First you start out by insulting the team itself then take it way off base and go into drug usage and insult the principle. And what the heck does the Basketball have to do with anything also? By the way you do know are Boys Basketball team upset Marietta in the region tournament just past this past season and made it to the semi finals? Don’t try to bring up things that have nothing to do with each other because you are going to find drug problems at ANY school in America.

Wow, Camden took Valdosta to the woodshed. 43-6. Can’t wait to the Camden vs Lowndes game on ESPNU (November 2nd). Go Mighty Wildcats!

Region 1AAAAAA

September 29th, 2012
9:36 am

Everybody is downing the Valdosta defense as being young and inexperienced.. I was at the game and the problem with this team is the WR’s, the play calling and decision making of the head coach. Valdosta had all the opportunities to make this game a dog fight. You can’t ask to have the ball on the 10yd line 3 times and only get 6pts. If the coach doesn’t start making better decisions to help his players out, it will be a LONG LONG season for this team.

KEY COACHING DECISIONS THAT HURT THE VALDOSTA WILDCATS vs. CAMDEN:

1. Valdosta has the ball 1st and goal on the 9yd line down 9-0 in the first quarter. Coach decides to pass instead of run and Camden intercepts in the end zone. (He did the same against BROOKS COUNTY at the end of that game!!!)

2.After scoring a TD and bringing the score to 16-6, coach goes for 2pt conversion instead of kicking extra point and making score 16-7!!!

3. Valdosta has the ball 2nd and goal from the 15yd line at the end of the half trailing 23-6. Valdosta drops a TD pass on 3rd down. Coach elects to try a 30yd field goal? What does a field goal do for you? You run a sophnore kicker out there, who has never played in this type atmosphere instead of going for it with your SR. QB.

4. Coaches makes NO personel changes after watching 2 players drop 4 passes each?

CAMDEN COUNTY has a GREAT TEAM, but the Valdosta head coach has alot of self checking to do!!!! He is not putting his players in the best position to be sucessful!!!

Now we start to hear the excuses as to why Valsosta lost to Camden. Point #2: 2 point conversion makes it a 1 score game. not getting it or kicking the extra point: still a 2 score deficit. point #3: if the FG is made, points on the board and momentum to start the 3rd quarter on offense. I will give you credit for a good point Camden does have a great team! That my friend was a great observation.

Region 1aaaaaa is so so correct. I couldn’t broke it down any better than this, we had chances this make this a dog fight and Camden couldn’t stop us from running the ball, we beat ourself and Coach G can make sum dumb decisions with his play calling. We need a mobile qb in this offense, but Coach like pocket qbs. We never going to the big game again unless we get another dual treat qb

@ mistermak – I am ot making any excuses for the loss, i’m just pointing out some key coaching decisions.

2. Toss sweep from the 4yd line is a great 2pt conversion play, when you know their strenght is speed on the outside? Kick the extra point and get your team some confidence.

Camden is a great team, but they are not unbeatable!!!!!

3. Its great to kick a field goal if you have a good kicker, but thats not the case for this team!! He will get better, but he is a sophmore and he’s not there yet!!!

@ reggaeman – I do think a mobile QB would help, but I think the QB Valdosta has is capable. His WR/TE are making him look worst than he really is. He threw for 181yds and would’ve had over 300yd if the WR/TE would catch the ball.

I also think Lowndes is getting to much props as well. The Packers offense is not explosive this year and they only averaging about 14 points per game this year and if you stop Lowndes from running you got them beat, plus this game was evenly match and i knew this game was going to be close. my Cats got a chance to beat them but we can’t have no drop passes and coach can’t abandoned the run if its working. I haven’t seen a team yet who could stop our running game but coach G is a passing coach, he live n die for the pass.

Coach Propst admitted in today’s paper that our OL just got whipped last night!

Too many sacks, a fumble and 3 interceptions!

Lowndes D is strong and fast!

Coach Propst main concern was that one of his old staff who’s with Lowndes may be stealing plays with binoculars from the crows nest on the visitors side.

Good game! Alot of mistakes and penalties on both sides.

On a good night for both they are pretty evenly matched teams.

Good job to all the teams that won last night. Looks like Parkview is the real deal this year, and they want to prove they are a high caliber team and are state title contenders. Now to head down South to the Region everyone is talking about.
The region race has just gotten interesting. With Lowdnes and Camden sitting atop it looks like a showdown is looming Nov. 2 in the Concrete Palace. Camden looked solid in its first Region game. Of course they have some things to work on, every team does, but they have done alot of things right, holding Valdosta to 6 points is no easy feat. But dont overlook Coffee and Colquitt. They still have shot to knock of Lowdnes and Camden, and Brunswick is another possible upset provider. That Lowdnes/Colquitt game must have been a thriller to watch. From the recap that @5-Time posted in another blog, it was a well fought game, in which Lowdnes edged Colquitt. The region is definately getting interested.

reggaeman…..Come back to reality! It would not have mattered what VHS did last night, the outcome of the game would have been the same! Whether winning by one point or 37, Camden would have won the game……..VHS had no answer for Camden’s offense! Camden, for whatever reason, decided to play coverage instead of putting pressure on the QB just before the half. IMO, that’s always a mistake when you’re facing a competent QB. I’m not even going to get into the Camden turnovers, phantom calls from the officials or the fact that Camden let up on offense and a running clock! STOP making EXCUSES! Especially when none of them would have made a difference in the outcome of the game! Go Camden County Wildcats! :-D

Lowndes held Colquitt to minus 10 yds rushing the first half, and pretty much throttled the run the whole game. For the game, Colquitt’s passing got them 3 or 4 first downs, and they had one long (51 yds) TD pass. Other than that and a blocked field goal (caused by a bad Lowndes snap from center) that CC returned for a TD, and Lowndes completely manhandled Propst’s Wild Hog offense. For Propst to talk about his school’s administration on the post game radio interview was disgraceful. He said he’d be in his Superintendent’s office Monday at 8am TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HIS PRINCIPAL! This is the same guy who repeatedly walked onto the field to “talk to the ref’s”, which really was only a disguise to let his defense rest and catch their breath (Lowndes had them reeling!)

Throughout the last few years when so many people criticized coach Propst for recruiting Alabama players, his past personal conduct, etc., I took up for him and his coaching abilities. No Longer will I do that! He is egotistical and a poor example as a role model for his players.

Last night Lowndes controlled the clock, thanks in part to the play clock in the endzone at the Packer’s stadium. But Lowndes’ defense and new DC (Taz Dickson) mixing up the rush and blitz patterns kept the CC OL confusded all night

Lowndes stepped up to the plate and showed Propst that contrary to what he said in his pregame radio interview, CC is not more “physical than Lowndes”. (I still can’t believe he said that, but I heard it on the Viking radio broadcast with my portable radio!) From a fan’s view point it was a great game to watch, but had too many mistakes by the players. Lowndes had numerous motion penalties, holding penalties, and twice was flagged for delay of game. But those things can be corrected, and if they are, Lowndes could very well be undefeated when we met Camden in our last regular season game.

Final thought for last night’s games: The only thing better than Camden’s 43- 6 win over Valdosta would be if it had been 53-6!! Just saying.

We gave up 5 or 6 sacks=one fumble=3 interseptions=15 yards rushing=no offensive prodution until the 4th quarter=only ran 2 plays in the whole first quarter=less than 200 yards of offense and yet we still had a chance to tie or win in the final min of the game!!! Wow. We did almost everything wrong but still had a chance.Now we don’t have a defensive front like Lowndes or Grayson or even Lovejoy but our little defense comes to play 4 quarters and they were on the field it seems like for 40 mins last night and still only gave up one offensive TD despite all the bad situations our offense put them in. Great job defense now if we can only get our offense to wake up we might be ok

Valdosta does have a young defense. They were able to move the ball on the ground against Camden, but those mistakes were too costly against an outstanding team. We can’t blame the game on Gillespie, because for the most part he called the game well. All coaches will make bad decisions from time-to-time. The receivers for Valdosta just did not execute at all, and they appeared to be scared. Never mind bragging from Camden, they deserve it, their team won. Valdosta should to continue focus on their goal, rebuilding a great football program. Lowndes and Coffee I am glad you both have already claimed a win against Valdosta. Even though the V-Wildcats did not win, other than the dropped passes from the receivers, I thought they played an overall better brand of football. Camden is not the state’s #1 team for nothing, they are good. I hope the V-Wildcats fans that hate Gillespie find another team to support. Gillespie is more successful than Nick Hyder was when he came to Valdosta. We love our Wildcats, and will cheer them on just as hard when they play the MIGHTY VIKING AND MIGHTY TROJANS. Just keep pushing Wildcats.

I disagree with comment that Valdosta beat themselves. Valdosta did not play a bad game, and they were able to move the ball on Camden. I think they gained 278 total yards thats not bad against a good no an excellent well coached Camden team. Camden played mistake free football and they took advantage of Valdosta’s mistakes, and the team did an excellent job executing their coaches game plan. Valdosta overall played well, but their receivers appeared to be scared to catch the ball, and they dropped a lot of key passes. You can’t have those mistakes against an excellent program. I really enjoyed the game, and believe their is no excuse for the loss. Valdosta’s goal is to rebuild it’s program before the Camden game, and they should have that same after the loss. I think Camden is more welcomed to region 1 than they think. The addition of Camden to region makes things more exciting.

VHS knew they were in for a long nite 13 seconds into the game. Camden ran the ball at will and when they needed to they hit the long ball with relative ease. I must say that I was suprised that the score ended up the way it did, but it is what it is and it aint no fluke! Can’t say I am suprised that the yellow cat fans are making excuses for losing by 37 points. C’mon man!!!!

Camden may well be a “great” football team, but when faced wtih a great Defense, of which they have not seen yet, this will tell the story. The coming weeks in Region 1AAAAAA will shake out the truth. I recall several years ago in Kingsland, Camden was beating Coffee,but in the second half Coffee shut down their offense and ended the game within 4 or 5 points. Teams that can effectively make adjustments and have a good enough defense can and will give Camden a run for their money. Coffee and Coach Pruitt just might be that team! Case in-point: Tift County’s R. Daniels was held to 41 yards of rushing, whereas in the previous 4 games he amased 800+ yards. Defense is what wins ball games. Let’s not fool ourselves, on any given Friday night…. anything can happen….

Great win Lowndes!!! Lowndes defense played hard. So much for us not being physical. Honestly I wasn’t all that impressed with Colquitt Co. but there is also much room for improvement for my Vikings as well. We have got to improve on these false starts. As far as this region goes I think it’s a little too soon to be crowning Camden or Lowndes. It’s hard to run the table on 1-AAAAAA. Yes Camden got an impressive win against Valdosta last night but we all know that this Valdosta team really isn’t exactly top notch this season, let’s just be honest here. Not knocking Camden but I don’t think they go undefeated in this region… Just saying!

Gman— If you can stop the run, and I emphasize if…Camden will beat you thru the air which is something they didn’t have ’several’ years ago. Just ask VHS what happened every time they starting stacking the box and running those safeties up. Ramsey is for real. Yea it is a long way until the season is over but I think ya’ll have to agree Camden can play ball and they will have to be reckoned with. Good luck next week…should be a good one! I just wish Mr. Davis could be here to watch it!! May he continue to rest in peace!!
