ajc does not care about our beloved camden county wildcats. we need a STATE wide newspaper that is not biased. we could publish it in warner robins. that would cover the entire state and not just atlanta. any takers?

You guys have a great program that basically no one in the ajc coverage area cares about. In all seriousness there is zero chance ajc is going to invest the time and effort to cover region 1. They get no money from so ga….. And they are a business making business decisions as to where to invest their efforts.

It only took four comments today before someone from South Georgia started complaining about the ATLANTA paper not covering a high school team from South Ga. You boys way down there are starting to understand it’s the called the Atlanta Journal Constitution for a reason.

I get that AJC does’t FOCUS on So Ga; What I don’t get is that they don’t MENTION it. Dc, you make perfect sense, except…they don’t apply the same logic to NCAAFB. THey don’t make any money from Alabama, or Carolina, or Gator fans either. Yes, they focus on GA teams, but the SEC is all over the place (has been since I started reading Bisher as a kid). At least acknowledging the best teams in the state outside the metro area would tamp down some of the frurstration.

Maybe as we get closer to the playoffs, any teams likely to even be in contention with Metro teams, will get some press. I suggest we (a Camden fan, yes) just keep playing well, and take comfort in that. The SEC has noticed Camden with 3 starters committed for the fall. Maybe the Athens Herald will cover Camden, even if from a “how are our recruits doing” perspective.

the fans cheered for the coffee band and could not understand the refs all night for both teams.

I give Camden and their fans the respect THEY deserve….very good program….

I could care less about AJC giving Region 1 coverage, they will be forced to cover us during the playoffs when we start destroying Atlanta area teams. After all, six of the last nine state championships have come from those boys in South Ga. Camden, Lowndes, Colquitt,and Coffee. If you put any of these teams in Atlanta they would run away from the competition. We are truely the SEC of Georgia Highschool football.

I saw Camden County play for the first time this year last night. They are good, very good i might add. I live in Lowndes County, I see them play all the time and at this point would have to say Camden has the advantage. Lowndes is big and fast on both sides of the ball which is normally to their advantage. But when they play Camden they will play a team that is just as fast with better players at the skilled positions. I came to see JJ Green who came up big like always, but Camden has another four or five running backs who are just as fast.It will be a Great game, I say Camden wins 20-17.

topper – I agree with you. Tift has a good new coach too. Mannn, this region is going to be something in a year or so! Cept at Colquitt, their future seems uncertain. But they always have athletes, and if they replace Probst with someone like Coffee and Tift went after and got, this region will be solld from top to Brunswick.

TitleTown Sports

Lowndes 52, Brunswick 00 : Lowndes head coach Randy McPherson said his team wasn’t distracted this week at practice, despite allegations the Vikings cheated in their win over rival Colquitt County last Friday night.The Vikings’ focus showed Friday night, when they blew out the Brunswick Pirates 52-8 at Martin Stadium to improve to 6-0 on the year and 2-0 in region play.“They did (play focused),” McPherson said. “They were ready to go. We had a good game plan, and I am proud of them.”Up next for the Vikings is rival Valdosta in the Winnersville Classic.Senior Tiquan Lang dominated on both sides of the football Friday night. The dual-threat standout made his presence felt on both offense and defense.Lang scored the Vikings’ first touchdown of the game on a 5-yard run on the opening possession, and finished with 94 yards rushing. Defensively, he recorded three interceptions, the first of which set up a Lowndes touchdown pass at the end of the first half.“It feels real good,” Lang said. “My team came out and played tonight. … The coaches kept our heads right and told us not to listen to any outsiders. You know, we play as a team. … You have to take it one game at a time. We are going to come out and play next week in a zone.”McPherson had nothing but praise for Lang’s performance following Friday’s game.“Tiquan is a good player,” McPherson said. “He is one of those guys that we can use on both sides of the ball.”The Vikings had little problem moving the ball, racking up 475 yards of total offense against the Pirate defense.Nick Burgman finished with 104 yards rushing on six carries, with a pair of rushing touchdowns to go along with a first quarter receiving touchdown. Ahman Brown finished with 69 yards rushing and two scores, while Tevin Brown added a rushing and receiving touchdown.Lowndes quarterbacks Alex Stephenson and Seth Carlo both threw touchdown passes on the night. Carlo connected with Burgman for a 31-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter that gave the Vikings a 13-0 lead. Stephenson tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to Tevin Brown that put Lowndes ahead 38-8 late in the first half.“It was definitely a good night for us,” McPherson said. “I think we are getting better.”Lowndes opened the scoring with an 8-play, 99-yard drive capped off by Lang’s 5-yard touchdown run.Following a 20-minute delay due to a Brunswick injury, the Vikings recorded two quick scores to take a 21-0 lead. Carlo and Brown connected on their touchdown, followed by a 12-yard touchdown run by Ahman Brown, who also scored the two-point conversion to put Lowndes ahead 21-0.After a 34-yard field goal by Gustavo Gonzales, which increased the Vikings’ lead to 24-0, Tre’ Jackson recovered a Brunswick fumble to set up Ahman Brown’s second rushing touchdown of the night, a 5-yard run up the middle. Lowndes led 31-0 with 8:48 remaining in the first half.Backup quarterback Lavosh Wynn put the Pirates on the scoreboard with a 68-yard touchdown run. He then threw a two-point conversion to make the score 31-8, the Pirates’ only points of the night.The Vikings concluded the first half scoring with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Stephenson to Tevin Brown.Lowndes added to its lead in the third quarter while managing to run time off the clock. Burgman found the end zone on a 10-yard touchdown run, his second of the night, followed by Tevin Brown’s 17-yard touchdown run, which was aided by a massive bone-crushing block from Stephenson.Brown’s touchdown capped the scoring as the junior varsity team played the entire fourth quarter.Friday’s game was delayed for nearly 20 minutes midway through the first quarter when several Viking defenders sacked Brunswick quarterback Cory Dixon, who remained motionless on the field. Dixon was placed on a stretcher and lifted into an ambulance before the game resumed.During the injury, the entire crowd at Martin Stadium remained seated and nearly silent while medical staff worked to stabilize Dixon and load him into the ambulance. While Dixon was motionless on the field, a moment of a silence was held throughout the stadium.It was later announced through the stadium’s public address speakers that Dixon had been released from South Georgia Medical Center under his own power.

I am from Coffee but lives in the ATL area. I agree that the ajc is slanted towards the Atl area schools but it is the AJC so that understandable. But our guys Coffee County came up against a great team and didnt quit. We will be a team to look out for next year because we are a very young team in a new system. But South Ga will get its respect when the playoffs come around.

I was not impressed with Coffee coach. Players draggin in and out of huddle , plays coming in slow, and coaches staying on field being penalized finally also 12 men in huddle a lot and not being called all the time. Trojans do u know what a hurry up offense is when u are behind 4 td’s and do u even have a no huddle package. Coffee does have some good young players but not impressed with Pruitt’s offense when they got behind. Of course Camden’s #1, #4,#14,#16,#32,#47,#61,#68,#78,etc all back next year with Jr varisty, 9th grade, and middle school teams winning almost all games.

Camden middle schools and Camden’s future. I watched a punter/halfback pick up a bad punt snap in his own end zone and instead of falling on it for a safety run it all the way back for a touchdown. JJ and Btice may go but there are the youngsters just waiting to step up and take their place. O yea that player left everyone else on the field and it wasn’t because of poor tackling. The boy can fly

Hereswhatittakes – you are right. There are MANY impressive players in both middle schools in Camden right now. One of them – the coaches say is more impressive than JJ Greene was at his age. I’ve seen the kid play since he was 7 years old – and I swear he was born to play! He’s gonna be fun to watch in the next few years!

No one but Region 1 supporters care about Region 1. It’s not that important to everyone in the state of GA. No matter how high you are ranked in the State or Nation. Go pick up a local paper and read it. I’m sure they have all the inside coverage that you want.

One way or the other, the Region 1-AAAAAA bloggers are by far the most persistent, vocal, and active bloggers on the AJC. Their persistence is unrivaled. Their persecution unrewarded. Without them, the AJC football pages would be sleepy and boring.

Congratz to Camden for getting the win and for playing a great game. I still don’t understand the coaching at Coffee, why the hell do you keep running the ball up the middle and going 3 and out when Camden has no pass defense, yes, I know Camden had a pick 6 in the game by JJ Green, but over all Camden could not stop the pass, yet all Coffee did is run, and the whole Coffee football team is very undisciplined, 3 late hits, caught 4 times with 12 or 13 men on the field, I thought that coach pruitt was going to fix these problems but idk. Go Trojans!

North and South georgia football parity would be great. Truth is, you guys up north have many more kids to choose from, and some of you have some pretty interesting policies on free-wheeling tranfers between schools. Down here we just ain’t got much else to do. If it wadn’t for football, we wouldn’t have nothing but intermarryin, and hell, that produces some purty interestin specimens that can kick some northern ass.

Was at camden game last night. Those boys are good. coffee played hard and held firm in 2nd half. i feel we could have had another td. coffee is heading in the right direction and we will only get better.

With all this said, i als was at the colquitt and lowndes game last week. camden is goin to have trouble scoring on the vikings. They have the speed to match camden and they have some exceptional corners who play in your face. lowndes will prob beat us by two or 3 tds as well. I have seen many viking defenses through the years and the one they have this year is like the viking defesne of old. camden can be beat, not going to be easy, but i see them losing to either colquitt or lowndes with lowndes more so bc lowndes has a running game that even camden will not shut down. its going to be a good game, brice will not have long to stand in pocket, if so he will get sacked quickly, passing going to be hard to do on the vikings

If Malcolm Parrish of Brooks had moved only 20 miles east, no one would be able to stay on the field with Lowndes. History shows that McPherson is nearly hapless when it comes to developing a passing game. Some say it’s not needed when you can run like they run and play defense like they do. It will be needed against Camden and several quality North Georgia teams who have the bodies to shut down thier running game.

GwinnettDad

Sometimes high school coaches seem to adapt their offense to their perceived talents of their QBs. Cecil Flowe’s 46 game win streak at Parkview had a very good passing game. The current Parkview team doesn’t pass at all. Brookwood played Lowndes in 2005 and got killed, but could throw to only one receiver. Brookwood beat Colquitt for the State Championship completing only seven passes, but to seven different receivers. Same coaches, different QBs, adapting to the ability of their talent.

Trying to figure out what Camden game you were watching. No pass defense??? A pick 6, 2 sacks, 5 hurries and 7 knockdowns and 2 Interceptions. The two TDS were coverages blown by the same guy, and that will get corrected. Other than those 2 plays, the Coffee QB threw for about 70 yards and had a completion percentage of below 50%. Oh, one more thing, Coffee scored 6 points in the 2nd half, Camden scored 7 (Camden ran 6 plays in the third quarter, and scored on a 3 play drive to open the 4th quarter). Camden pretty much shut it down after hanging 32 points on them in the a quarter and a half unanswered!!! Also, Coffee scored 12 points on Camden, so did Beach!

Remember Just want to know, football was invented in South GA. South Georgia schools should be ranked in the college top 25. When they lose a play off game to a Gwinnett school (Gwinnett is not Atlanta) they blame Atlanta for it’s news papers, refs, recruiting (keep in mind every school in Region 1 has an entire county of talented athletes to choose from). They will never give the North GA schools the respect that they deserve.

Falconguy45……..The population of Gwinnett County is 824,941 as of 2011. The population of Camden County is 50, 410 as of 2011. Almost 10 percent of the state’s population lives in Gwinnett County. You have what, 17-18 Publis Schools in Gwinnett? Over half of the state’s population lives in the Metro Atlanta Area. Now, you tell me, who has the the advantage in student population to choose from? Go Camden County Wildcats! :-D

We also have four power house schools within 15 minutes travel distance between each other that we compete against. I still have a valid argument that Region 1 has an entire county of players to choose from. We also have to deal with new school openings that have taken players away from the better Gwinnett programs, but that is ok, we still find ways to win championships. My complaint is not with the Camden people. I met several nice Wild cat fans earlier this year at the dome. I have issue listening to the cry babies down the 75 corridor when they get their buts kicked
