Predictions: Camden, Colquitt to advance past Coweta teams

Cobb County teams went 2-2 against Region 1-AAAAAA in the first round of the playoffs last week. Now Coweta County gets a turn, but it’s unlikely to fare as well against the south Georgia powers. Look for Camden County and Colquitt County to get past East Coweta and Newnan to reach the quarterfinals, where they’ll be joined by Grayson, Lovejoy, Mill Creek, Norcross, North Cobb and West Forsyth. And expect M.L. King, Tucker and East Paulding to win the Region 5 vs. Region 6 battles in Class AAAAA.

Congratulations go out to Joel Norris of Lawrenceville, who was last week’s winner in the High School Football Pickoff contest. Norris was the only contestant to correctly pick the winner in 13 of 15 games. Click here to sign up and participate in this week’s contest.

They are UNDEFEATED! They AVERAGE over 41 points EVERY time they play!!! COACH we only scored that much in ONE game this year and that was against 1 / 9 LAKESIDE. You seen the SIZE of this team, they RUN around you, they run through you, COACH they RUN OVER YOU!

and COACH they got 2 CANNON’S at this school! One in their QB’s arm and EVERY time he fires it…they get to shoot off the other one up on the hill! COACH how did we get in this mess, you KNOW we NEVER win when we go outside of DeKalb County and this year we are heading into HOSTILE TERRITORY…they got 3, COUNT EM’ 3 PLAYOFF teams right where we are heading too!

COACH call somebody PLEASE…we are in SO MUCH trouble…Oh the PAIN!!!

Sportsnut here, Good one Cannon. Keep them coming.
@ Hughesdb == Good Luck. If you guy’s bring it, you will have a chance. You must play physical and not be intimidated. Play like you are the best and never have any doubt otherwise. Your defense is highly ranked and for you to have a chance, you will need to lay it down and play them like you have played all the rest .Do what you do. Again, good luck.

Lovejoy will welcome Marietta on friday at 12 Oaks Stadium and try to be good host before and after the game. ,During the game is another story. This game will be a battle. These teams are very close in what they do. Marietta has avery good player at the Qb spot in Anthony Jennings. He has thrown for almost 2200 yards and 24 Td’s and rushed for 719 yards and 9 Td’s. He will be a priority for the Lovejoy D to deal with. By far, he will be the best they have faced since Joshua Dobbs of Alpharetta, the current state passing leader. They did well in allowing him only 8 of 20 for less than 150 yards. They also did well earlier in the year against Cole Seagraves of Colquit, though he did pass for a Td on a tackle eligible play. Lovejoy will respect Marietta’s team and give them all their attention. Safe travels for the fans of the Devil’s that will be making the oh-so-good short drive down 75. Good luck to both teams and may all the kids be healthy before and after the game.

You make a post about “MEDS” and support a team with a coach as GOOFY as PROPST! Sure he knows football BUT talk about a MENTAL CASE!!! He spends more time ON the field than half his team does!!

But you have a “sleeper”out there this year in NORTH COBB…they just beat VALDOSTA who has ALREADY beat COLQUITT!

The Cannon…. I have not seen North Cobb play, but if I was North Cobb, I would not want to face Colquitt in the playoffs. So what if you beat Valdosta. That is a down program. I would rather face Camden or Norcross in the dome if we make it that far.

North Gwinnett fans – If you are coming to the game tonight, there is a new entrance to Grayson that is much easier to get in and out of. Continue down 20/Grayson Hwy past Hope Hollow where you used to turn to get to the school. The very next light is the new entrance to the school. The light may be flashing as it is programed to only cycle during the start and end of the school day. The Gwinnett Sheriffs will have it operating after the game for sure.

Also, once you are in the parking lot, if you go to the left around the school, there is a back entrance to the stadium that generally is not as crowded as the main ticket gate. The main gate will be crowded since school was out this week and there weren’t very many advance ticket sales.

Safe travels and see you at the game!

Winning these games is much easier said than done. We know there will be upsets – which ones? Perhaps Grayson will wish South Gwinnett had missed just one more field goal?

Region 1 AAAAAA is relatively safe this week as GHSA has set up Gwinnett to eliminate Gwinnett. But there will be a minimum of 3 Gwinnett teams left, and maybe as many as 6 if Buford, GACS, and Parkview all advance.

It will be particularly interesting to see what happens when West Forsyth faces a Gwinnett defense.

These kids have worked very hard to get to this point and they deserve our respect and appreciation. There will be some outstanding performances. Good luck and safe travels to everyone.

@ Wildhawg2012 == You’re welcome. I too would be glued to CSS if not for the fact that I am only 3/4 of a mile from 12 Oaks. Have only missed 5 since 2000. Thanks for the wish of luck. We may need it against that outstanding Qb, Jennings. This kid has had a hand in 33 Td’s. Twenty-four passing and 9 running. He is no joke. Lovejoy is favored but you never know. It is after all friday night.
