Check your math on the Dawson Co. V Banks Co. 6 + 3 + 2 = 11 touchdowns. 45 to 9 final score doesn’t add up. KP

Come on Thomson again y’all battle from behind and give up 325 passing yards wow!!!!!!!…..Boy lovett got a slick QB and a great set of offensive of plays, with a OC who always looking to set you up for the set up great game…..But we are so balance this year they was making sure the big pass plays was no where to be found, so all we did is unleashed our QB in the run game…..AAA Waco got y’all on notice

Hello Son of WACO!! Here we go again! You still drinking that haterade and apparently haven’t learned your lesson! I was at the game last night and give GAC a lot of credit! Those boys have heart especially their qb! Trust if you guys were to play them you would struggle as well (just as you did with Lovett in your own stadium I might add)! We actually dominated the game, but what kept the game close were costly turnovers, penalties (some questionable), and big plays for GAC! No excuses for those and I admit we need to improve on those things!

But look you guys played the same size and quality team in your own stadium and gave up 35 points!! Just like Lagrange, not only did GAC have last week off, but we also had to travel to play them! What’s your excuse? You always on here talking about your offense, but never mention anything about your defense! Why is that? Looking at the scores of some of your games, it appears you guys don’t exactly have much of a shut down defense! Maybe that’s the reason HUH… As much as we need to improve our pass defense, it appears you guys need to improve your overall defense or prepare for a long night on Oct. 26… Lol!

T-Town…You got to get the FACTS MAN!!! We scored on every possession besides before halftime and at the end of the game… Lovett a balance team who can pass and run like us and had great set up plays but our defense still did their thang…Also where did you get the info from that we struggled from, they had the lead once because they had the ball first and that lasted what 5 plays….From then on we had a 14 point lead but not like y’all who edge out another win and got you adding another excuse in the book with the others from the past games…..Before i made my post i did look at 4 sites about y’all game and they was like the game was up for grab until 1 min left in the game, so dominate y’all didn’t do that….I talk about our defense as being good not great but they good enough to make a duel threat team struggle and earn every point and dominate a run only team….Waco is one of the lowest populated AAA schools, like 40 students away from being AA and 200 away from the top AAA schools…So grade us on a real scale when comparing school sizes…..

Don’t doubt Rafe Chapple’s arm: The Gwinnett Daily Post reported Greater Atlanta Christian’s quarterback passed for 330 yards and three touchdowns as the No. 9 Spartans barely lost to AAA’s second-ranked Thomson, 36-27. That gives him 549 yards and eight TDs his last two times out.

The normally penalty free SPX Golden Lions showed their perseverance, discipline confidence and class by overcoming the worst referee’s and blatantly biased calls I have seen in 40 years playing coaching and watching football. Dekalb County should realize that bad refs or refs who get involved in the game hurt everybody and undermine the lessons that the players need going forward. GHSA needs to review Dekalb’s refs and end this craziness.

The Golden WACO Hawks are giving up too many points, not a championship caliber defense. Defense wins championships.

Son of WACKO- What are you talking about? All I said was that you played a quality AA program just like we did and you guys gave up 35 points at home! Yes we struggle against a good GAC team due to costly turnovers, penalties (some questionable), and big plays! The major difference between our game and yours is that we played GAC on the road and they had 2 weeks to prepare for us, and we still came out with a hard fought victory! You guys played a tough Lovett team at HOME, but still gave up 35 POINTS!! So all I’m trying to say is your defense is suspect and our offense is just as lethal as yours!

Also Son of WACKO, why are you so obsessed with us? You mention that you looked at 4 sites on Thomson’s game before posting your message. If you asked me Son, that appears to be a little WACKO… You definitely living up to your name!

Last but not least, you guys are a considered a AAA school whether you are 1 student over, 40 students over, or a 100 students over… That’s how you will judge whether you thinks it fair or not! If you don’t like it, complain to GHSA your lame excuse and tell them to send you guys back to AA!

Go DOGS a.k.a “Toughest schedule in AAA!!”

T-Town…..You got a answer for everything…I mean all i said was y’all was in a struggle again and survived, which is true…Just because a team have 2 weeks to prepare for ya isn’t a excuse, it’s football and y’all a top program(so you say) go out their and perform, weather on the road or at home…Me personally too many sluggish games tell me that y’all alright, but not dominate because we are now 6 weeks into the season and y’all still making the same mistakes (GOT TO BE SOME TRUTH IN THAT)….Waco defense allows around 22 points a game and y’all defense is doing the same…Having the toughest schedule in AAA don’t make you a better team, just a beat up team when the playoffs starts…How many players have y’all lost or are limping around with regions starting next Fri….YEAH so much for them useless non region games!!!!!!! AGAIN THE ONLY GAME WACO CAME CLOSE TO LOSING WAS IN WEEK 1 FROM THEN ON WE HAVE DOMINATED EVERY GAME….FACT!!!!!

William Walker, Washington County: The Golden Hawks’ quarterback rushed for 232 yards and two touchdowns and passed for 107 yards and a touchdown in a win over Lovett.

Washington County at Jefferson County, Friday: The Golden Hawks will find out if their tough non-region schedule – they beat Eagle’s Landing Christian, ECI, Baldwin, Laney and Lovett – will pay off as they travel to Louisville for their Region 3-AAA opener.

Let’s breakdown WACO’s so-called tough non-region schedule:

2 “A” schools: Eagle’s Landing (who WACO barely defeated) and ECI
2 “AA” schools: Lovett and Laney (who we know in the Augusta area is average at best)
1 “AAAA” school: Baldwin (the same team who WACO barely defeated and Peach County dominated)
1 “AAAAA” school: Grovetown (who you forgot to mention by the way)

You can thank me later for reminding you, but with all do respect, sometimes domination can be result of scheduling! I’m just saying!

Thomson’s non-region schedule:

Burke County (Away)
Lakeside (Home)
St. Pius (Home)
Lagrange (Away and had a bye week)
Westminster (Home)
Greater Atlanta Christian (Away and had a bye week)

Outside of Lakeside, which one of those teams you think WACO would have dominated? I rest my case… Go DOGS!!

Man I love a good back and forth Waco and T Town going at it. Now the easy way to settle this is go to http://ghsfha.org/index.php and look at all the records of teams played. That may help that way you just click to the opponents records and then go to their opponents records, You can really go an hour on that site and not even realize it.
@kidsballcoach seldom does a Dekalb team make the 3rd round considering all the teams they have because when the best crews of refs come in from out of town that know the rules the dekalb teams are not use to it. It is a yellow hanky fest illegal formations,rolling starts etc etc. Bad officials hurt them in the long run too bad. Tucker usually is the exception.

NoDistrictLinesInDekalb….I try to hit him with facts but he tries to dress ugly wins up as great wins…I’m going to try and break it down to him once more with facts…..

T-Town…..Got this from GHSA daily which i get in a email from Todd….

Last week: Beat Greater Atlanta Christian 36-27. Thomson won after trailing for the sixth time as GAC led 20-15 at halftime. Chris Jordan rushed for 199 yards on 19 carries and scored three touchdowns, and his 69-yard return of a teammate’s fumble in the final minute provided the final margin. Trailing 30-27 with 1:06 left, GAC had a first down at the Thomson 24 but was intercepted in the end zone by William Bussey.

Nw lets break down Thomson toughest schedule in AAA….Burke who won the state last year had to replace at least 8 impact players on the team so the first game of the season is the best time to get a win against them….St. Pius don’t have a big time win against a known power program in 3 yrs , so what makes them great besides ATL saying they are……Lagrange was 4-6 last season and the teams they beat this season are a combine 3-12 this season( YEAH I SAID THEIR WINS WAS AGAINST TEAMS WHO COMBINED RECORED ARE 3-13)….Now westminster played the same Laney team you called average and beat them 12-15 and Waco played Laney and beat them 51-28( was 51-7 when we took our starters out at the start of the 4th) GAC combined record of teams they beat are 3-13( YEAH I SAID 3-13)…..So when you take a real look at their schedule how tough is it and they was down at halftime to all them teams…..

I know the truth hurts !!!!!!!!!!

Son of Waco..You can’t throw bricks when you live in a glass house Bro.
You mentioned SPX did not play anyone..(Blessed Trinity and SPX have played the 5th- and 6th-hardest schedules in AAA, according to the computer Maxwell Ratings. Nothing weak about their schedules, IMO.)…Lovett put up 35 on you guys..SPX shut Lovett out 24-0.. Washington County is giving up 22 points per game! All things aside, how do you argue with those facts?

Seen a few…..Thomson defense average 20 points a game too and they beat y’all so what are you trying to say????? You say a computer say y’all have the 6th hardest schedule in AAA so what the game is played on the field not on a computer screen……. Private schools have the best coaches money can buy so yes they offense should be advance but they still got to play defense and most can’t. and playing other ATL schools don’t count come down to Middle GA more and make us respect y’all………

Son of Waco,
Pius’ defense allows an average of 7.3 points per game. Their defense coordinator has 6 state championships. Advanced offense? It’s a Wing T With Veer and Deleware principles. It’s been around since the 60’s. The only like opponent they have with your team is Lovett so far. Pius 24 Lovett 0. Wash County 48 Lovett 35. I don’t think they are concerned about yours or anybody else’s respect.

THANK YOU SEEN A FEW and BIG FAN!! I remember seeing that game on television and St. Pius not only dominated Lovett, but shut them out as well!! And yet they put up 35 points against WACO in their fame “HOUSE OF PAIN”! This SON OF WACKO continually disrespects other programs, but yet WACO haven’t won anything since the 90’s! I laughed at his last post because he’s actually trying to downplay Thomson’s schedule by suggesting that Burke, Pius, GAC, Lagrange, and Westminster are not really strong programs, so our schedule is not really that tough! But yet their schedule with 2 “A” schools (Eagle Landings- who they barely defeated and ECI), 2 “AA” schools (Lovett- who put up 35 at their house and Laney- average at best), 1 “AAAA” school (Baldwin- WACO barely defeated, Peach dominated), and a really weak “AAAAA” school (Grovetown) is TOUGH! And the worst part is he has the nerve to brag about being dominate!! I said it before and I’m going to say it again this dude is a JOKE!! He needs to be banned from posting any more blogs on this site!!

Oh yeah, NoDistrictLinesInDekalb, I already used that site to prove to Son of WACKO Thomson’s dominance against WACO:

As a right now, the count stands Thomson 26 wins to WACO’s 10!! Now thats ‘TRUE DOMINATION” don’t you think?! Lol… GO DOGS!!

Big Fan….If the Defense Coordinator has 6 state titles and how many have he brought y’all…. Let’s get the facts straight, i know st.pius run the wing-t but just because one private school run a basic run only offense don’t discount the two teams we faced that runs the spread(Money well spent)…So because a team scored 35 points on us,it make us weak on defense but can thomson or St pius pass on us like lovett did hmmm!!!!!! I Think Not….. Everyone wants to over look how our offense scored on every possession we had and rushed for 400+ yrds and added 100 passing just to make lovett respect the pass game….

So let’s break down our schedule then folks: ELCA got 3 D-1 players on defense and two are ESPN 150 players……ECI hasn’t had a losing record in over 5 yrs and has won a state title in that span too and produced a few major D-1 recruits too…..Baldwin was down 14-7 to peach at halftime look it up plz…Peach turn 3 baldwin fumbles in the 2nd half into 21 points which gives you the blowout win….T-Town you can’t say that don’t matter either because isn’t that the same excuse you been using when you say they had a bye week or we had penalties or had to travel a long way when y’all was close to losing all 5 games…..Grovetown y’all played (Lakeside Evans) if you forgot…We barely won 1 game thomson barely won 3 games…

.FYI the Macon Telegraph called our schedule tough, so i copied and paste it here for T-Town viewing pleasure… I’ve never said our schedule was tough i’ve always said it was respectful….

Who made this famous quote? Son of WACKO (but I thought you never said your schedule was tough)

Also by the way, if you scroll up and look at one of my earlier post (if you can read), I did mention Lakeside when I compared our non-region schedule to yours. You was the one who conveniently forgot to mention Grovetown when you talked about your “so-called” tough non-region schedule in your famous quote I just posted!

Look all jokes aside, I know WACO has a “good” if not “great” team, and I respect the hell out of them! You continually disrespect other programs and thats why you are getting hammered by everyone! I have nothing against WACO, but I just can’t let anyone come on here and continually disrespect Thomson!

Results from WACO’s games do show that they do have a great offense, but a suspect defense! Results from Thomson’s games do show that they have sluggish starts, but they also finish strong! AS I SAID BEFORE and I agree with you, Thomson can’t afford to do that against great teams in AAA, such as Peach, WACO, Buford, and Pius and continually expect to win! Thomson also must sure up their pass defense, stop the costly penalties and turnovers, and be a little more consistent in their passing game! However, our qb, who is only a sophmore, is getting better each game! I’m going to leave on this note (as long as you show respect), I believe if Thomson and WACO come with their “A” game, they have a good chance to beat anyone in AAA (that includes each other)! But the same can be said for other great teams such as Peach, Buford, Pius, etc! Peach is the favorite, but I believe the AAA state championship is up for grabs this year! We shall see, but definitely should be an exciting year in AAA! Go DOGS!!
