This only mentions D.J. Smith’s offensive stats….he also intercepted a pass, recovered a fumble, and recovered a late onside kick attempt by Etowah. He was LITERALLY all over the field.

Assessment of the Coffee/Colquitt game: Coffee has “NO” pass defense…. Our O-line does not block…. From a “true Coffee fan”, getting a little tied of hearing the Coffee game radio folks talk about how young we are, implementing a new system, new coach…etc….. NO!!! New coach was here during spring practice, during the summer, and now thru 9 games… What will be the excuse next year? Maybe(?)….. “Oh it takes 2 to 3 years to get the system in”….. Wrong! Blocking and pass defense are common to “ALL” systems!

I thought that south GA fans were paranoid and just taking things out of context, but I can’t believe that non of the Region 1 games were displayed/covered here. This has become a weekly occurrence . I know AJC is mostly metro, but why say 6A roundup and not include arguably the best region.

@GRam This is just a reprint from Score Atlanta; they only cover locally unless someone is sending them detailed info. Todd does the real AAAAAA breakdown on a different post. I think the South guys have all figured that out. It only took them 9 games too.

Went to the Valdosta game at Brunswick last night (as I did last year, as well). My comment here pertains to the stadium. There weren’t that many fans there, in fact Valdosta fans may have equalled the number of Brunswick fans, and in a stadium that seats 12,500, the place seemed kinda empty. The good thing is, it is very easy to get into and out of, and there is plenty of close in parking. I imagine the place would really rock if it were packed like Bazemore-Hyder and Martin stadiums are for Winnersville. Glynn County Stadium is an enjoyable place to attend a game, especially when you win! :-)

Just trying to do some 1st round potential match-ups between 1 & 4…………………..Looks like Camden will match up with Hillgrove, Lowndes will play Marietta, Valdosta to play North Cobb and Colquitt will match up against McEachern……….Any thoughts or problems with those match-ups? Region 4AAAAAA has 3 teams with 2 losses but Mareitta still has McEachern and North Cobb has a win head to head with Hllgrove.

@WILDHAWG2012,

I think if Coffee beats Valdosta, that puts Colquitt out of the playoffs……….Head to head match-ups would place all three teams with 3 losses Coffee as the 3 seed (if they beat Valdosta) and Valdosta as the 4 seed (they beat Colquitt) You might want to cheer on the Cats!

I believe McEachern matches up well with Colquitt, but region 4 is a weak region and cannot match up with some of the other Gwinnett schools or Region 1

@Todd Dempsey…Believe this; Marietta fans were not shocked at the play of NC. They showed nothimg we haven’t already seen. What surprised Marietta fans was the way we were out-coached. Well maybe that is not a surprise. Why put in new plays days before the game? Why put the QB in new look situations that’s only been practiced a couple days? Oh…and why in the Hell are we not running Benson all night long. We know NC has a high powered offense, so the best way to keep combat that is through ball control. NC had no answer for Benson, yet we only ran him 13 times for 90 yds. The game plan should have been from the opening whistle, to run, run, run. Benson should have had about 200 yards. Also, our QB has to hold on to the ball. He is very competitive and tries to get extra yards. Sometimes you just have to fall and live to play another play. That 14 points off turnovers early was just too much to overcome against a very good team in NC. You just can’t do that against a very good team. Also, for some reason, we changed our defensive scheme. You don’t have to make major changes for teams; you play your game and make them adjust to you, and if what you are doing, you make in game adjustments; which is something we don’t do well. When Benson was eating up yards, NC called timeout to stop the bleeding, but when NC was moving the ball at will we did not call one timeout to adjust.

Either way NC beat us Fair n Square, although we should have a could have played much better if put in better situations. This game should have been a high scoring bar burner. We have to stop the politics and trying to build stats for one player, and design a game plan that will win the game. Benson is just a sophmore and that kid should have been the featured player last night; not for stats but because it would have provided a better chance to win.

Regardless, I do believe that Region 4 is being overlooked against the “mighty” Region 1. From what I saw with NC, I believe they will win their 1st round game as well as McCeachern. Marietta will surprise Lowndes if coached correctly. Was not impressed with what I saw on tv, eveen though they were playing Camden with two starters out. All they do is run; not very hard to coach against. 1 dimentional. Call me crazy, but these are my predictions.

@ FalconGuy45 Region 4 is not the weak region that it is made out to be. I do agree that the Gwinnett schools are tough matchups, but surprisingly will match up with Region 1 very well.

ppaaddy123

November 3rd, 2012
12:52 pm

@BlueFan

Region 4 will wear the halo against region 1.Camden was, by far, the better team last night. Since you watched the game, turn overs by Lowndes killed them. But Lowndes could have played mistake free and I still think Camden walks away the winner. Camden has a very physical and talented football team.

Greta game between two teams and their defenses. I am quite sure by now the question has been answered as to how good this Camden County team really is. Remember the squawk about them playing in a weak Region 3-AAAAA? Now their in Region 1-AAAAAA (the toughest Region In America when it comes to Football). Now the talking is done. What does North Georgia has to say about them now?

I think Camden has a point to prove as this is their first year in region 1AAAAAA (actually 1st year for everyone) I think they’re going to the Hog Pen with bad intentions. I think there will be plenty of squealing, but it’s going to be the BAD kind!

@ppaddy123 I’m not betting against Camden; not just sold on seeds 2-4 yet. I could be wrong but I’m just going by the eye test. I think the what kinda even things out is that region 4 match region 1 on speed and coaching; except for the coaching for our team. I don’t think there will be blowouts as many seem to expect. I believe there will be some competetive games from seeds 2-4. Now Camden is another story.

David Kidd……. I am sure you are a bigger red neck in person than what you display on this message board. This is not a civil war. Just understand that there are several other teams outside of Region 1 that will compete for the title. I am sure the Camden folks will agree. Now go have another Budweiser.

IMO, Region 4 matches up well with Region 1. All of the R4 playoffs teams are dangerous because they can score points quickly. McEachern is a very dangerous football team and give the right bracket, they could be around for a minute.. Region 1 has better defense, that’s their real advantage.

I stopped complaining about lack of coverage by the AJC of South Georgia Teams a long time ago. That’s why I started posting Camden scores myself! :-D

Camden 45…. When Grayson beat Miami Central and then the nod for # 1 in the nation, we did not get much press coverage. The Atlanta newspaper only gives the Fulton County schools the coverage. Every Fri night, they are interviewing or covering a school that has no factor or a prestigious private school. We get slighted also.

@Wildhawg2012, that’s not true. If Coffee beats Valdosta then its a three way tie. Tie breakers how many points the teams have giving up to region opponents. Worst case Coffee beats Valdosta 2-0 and we give up 36 points are more and lose to Camden were out. So Coffee could beat Valdosta and still not make playoffs. But hey when we shock the state and beat Camden AGAIN were definitely in.

@blue fan I agree Marietta defensive coaching is so bad! Good linebackers but d-line is horrible and never rotates same players every snap and they just get erased! No in game adjustments it is almost like grounghog day? DC sits in box and never deals with players no emotion and good lord make an in game change at least once this year?? You can almost see how tired they are and yet no changes, we will head south and get destroyed again. Maybe next year coach Burton will stick his head in a defensive meeting and see what is going on over there. He wont have Jennings next year so lets hope he will pay attention to whole team for once?

Region 4 does match up well with region 1. I have stated this already. Region one is a run first region. Region 4 will put the ball up and you may find yourself behind before you know it. Region 1 is well versed in stopping the run. You have to outscore region 4. This does not bode well for a primarily running team. Passing game is a must. Your corners need to be able to cover playing region 4. It all remains to be seen. Two weeks and we will find out who has what and what can they do with it.

Camden County better come to play next week. Yes, they are a great team but the Packers have been on the cusp of beating every team they lost to this season. I think everyone knows what we have done in the playoffs the past few years. We have beaten several teams that we were “supposed to lose to” and went on the road for most of these victories in the playoffs. Oh yeah, Camden County was one of those teams we were “supposed to lose to” in the playoffs, on the road. We will be ready.

5 time…… Why do you bring up 9 years ago???????? We are talking lately. Live in the now and the latest. We, the North have dominated the past two years. Two years ago, both Grayson and Collins Hill traveled 4 hours south to defeat Valdosta ( blow out) and Lowndes. Sorry Region 1, but this not the 80’s and the North has equally as good as programs and teams. If you want to a history lesson, Parkview dominated the 90’s. The programs up North have gotten better to compete with your 1 high school county teams. Reggae man…. Your in for a rude awakening. How is Grayson and Norcross overrated?… Please explain your nonsense? Is it because both schools are North of Macon and you guys can’t stand a North team being mentioned? How can Grayson be overrated with 14 division 1 commits? I am sure it’s a conspiracy theory that scouts don’t travel to South Georgia. Give respect to the teams that deserve it and I will stop bashing on you guys.
