So do I but I think that North Paulding will be the number 3 seed out of Region 5 and Rome will be number 4. We will see tonight since Rome is playing at North Paulding and it is North’s Homecoming. I know everyone is saying that Rome will win but I think North only lose’s one more game this year and that will be to Allatoona.

Only a matter of time

Region 4 that looks about right. Maybe some Blue Devil fans will argue they will finish a #2 seed or #3 seed. If Hillgrove can put together 4 qtrs against a quality opponent like N. Cobb then they could be back in the mix for the #4 seed. Not sold on McEachern at #1 seed just because the defense is so young. Oh well, it should be interesting to see how things shape up. That’s why the play the game. Good luck to all tonight.

You got region 5 (6a) wrong.. Milton will be the 1st or 2nd plce team. Walton is not that strong this year. Milton and Wheeler will beat Walton. Etowah lost their 2 QBs. They gonna struggle for the rest of the season.. my prediction..Lassiter,Mil & ton,Walton then Wheeler sneaks in by upsetting Walton next week & winning 3 out of 4 for the rest of the season. Wheeler is better than you guys think.. stop sleeping on them.

Marietta, North and South Cobb will be one and done, if the above scenario plays out. Valdosta can and might rise to the occasion and make it a sweep. BTW, I’m thinking Valdosta will finIsh 3rd in region 1-AAAAAA. That would send Colquitt to visit McE. Colquitt will defeat McE.

Camden wins their 1st round game easily. Glad they’re not playing Hillgrove. LOL

In case you missed it or something in AA R3 Screven is undefeated in region play and has already beat Laney. You know the actual game results decide who is number one seed not who the press thinks is the better team. Just ask Al Gore about this.
