AAAAAA roundup

By Score Atlanta

Camden County 34, East Coweta 14: Visiting East Coweta could not contain Camden County’s J.J. Green, who scored two touchdowns to become school’s leading scorer. Camden County’s Antonio Wimbush scored on a 67-yard run in the third quarter. Quarterback Brice Ramsey threw a 25-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter for the hosts.

Colquitt County 26 Newnan 23: Visiting Newnan answered an early 12-0 lead with a Rodney Tennie 20-yard interception return for a touchdown and a Bailey Bryant touchdown pass to J.K. Britt. Colquitt County got a valuable late first half field goal to reclaim the lead. A John Boatwright 18-yard touchdown run would give Colquitt County just enough to edge Newnan.

Lovejoy 36, Marietta 15: Host Lovejoy fell behind 8-0 in the first quarter before scoring 29 unanswered points. Quarterback Alejandro Benefield threw for 152 yards and three touchdowns. Brandon Davis iced the victory when he intercepted a pass in the end zone and returned it 105 yards for a score.

Mill Creek 56, Brookwood 21: Host Mill Creek used four Brookwood turnovers to roll past the Broncos. Jacorey Lewis ran the ball 34 times for 252 yards and three scores. DeVonzea Felton added 78 yards on 11 carries and a score. Quarterback Daniel David found Michael Cheeks three times for 85 yards and a touchdown. David also rushed for three scores.

North Cobb 42, Langston Hughes 14: J’Vonte Herrod had four rushing touchdowns and one receiving for visiting North Cobb. Herrod opened the scoring with a first quarter rushing touchdown before teammate Nick Miller picked up a Langston Hughes fumble and found the end zone on the ensuing kickoff. Herrod extended the 21-14 halftime lead and the North Cobb defense forced a scoreless second half.

Parkview 23, West Forsyth 20 (OT): Visiting Parkview claimed its second road overtime playoff win in a row. Rob Youngblood found Mac Marshall for a 37-yard touchdown in the first quarter before West Forsyth quarterback A.J. Erdely answered with a rushing touchdown. Parkview’s Shaq Vareen scored the first of his two touchdowns before the half and after a blocked PAT the Panthers trailed 17-13. Vareen forced overtime with a game-tying 5-yard touchdown. In the overtime, West Forsyth was held to a field goal. Parkview then took over on the 15 and Justice Rosser took the first-down snap of overtime in for a game-winning touchdown run.

Rush Propst is a automatic bid to final four with his defense coming up big and now his offense coming up clutch……Dangerous combination

Norcross and Lovejoy have a lot of similarities, NGHS won’t be playing a 1970’s offense this week. Lovejoy wins the turnover battle they win! I hope it’s cold and windy at Twelve Oaks. Go Cata!

Anthony Jennings is the most over rated QB. He looked like a deer in the headlights. Lovejoy gave the ball back 3 times on roughing penalties and he still couldn’t put points on the board. As an LSU fan I was hoping to see more from him last night.

During the West Forsyth game, a player from Parkview was taken away in an ambulance. Any news on how he is doing? The West Forsyth fans are sending prayers out to him and his family….

Proud of our West Forsyth team. Any news on the Parkview player who was taken off the field by ambulance? Our kid’s twitter feeds were blowing up last night for prayers for the young man.

I’m not exactly sure of the specifics of Blake’s injury; however, it was said that he was taking off his own tape in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, and later sent Coach Flowe a text message motivating the Panthers to win. Fortunately, it looks like he will be alright; nevertheless, thank you for your prayers and concern. The entire West Forsyth family was extremely patient and respectful when Blake went down – a real class act.

@ outside looking in == They don’t want to talk Lovejoy, as usual. Good for us. Looks like we have the home field all the way through again. A very well done job so far for the Cats as they continue to do what they do and “Put Dem Paws On em”.

Wow! Only 3 of 6 Gwinnett teams left in 6A. Hey Grayson, South, and Brookwood . . . WHERE U AT? (U at HOME and not the DOME!) Congrats. to Parkview, Norcorss, and North Gwinnett!

Never seen a BAND draw a penalty until last night. North Gwinnett band kept playing (LOUD) right thru Grayson snaps. Warned once then popped with an “unsportsmanlike” but only cost the team 5 yds. Maybe they were trying to rub it in that they HAVE a band. Graysons band only had about 35 kids. Oh well I guess if you got it . . . BLOW IT!! (Your trumpet, gutter brain!)

Hey, Sal Monella: You left out Mill Creek who embarrassed Brookwood last night and will play North Cobb next.

Newnan VS Colquitt County was a war. Have to give Propst his due. He and his staff know how to work a game. Newnan fans will be talking about this game for years to come. Both teams layed it all out last night. This is great football.

Let’s be clear…we ain’t nothin but a bunch of poor, tiny, little undersized Hawgs. Plus we’re a 4 seed. How we gonna compete with a Monster like Parkview?

Oh Woe Is Us !!! Oh Woe Is Us !!! But who know…we just might score…(Smile).

Good game Newnan
Just noticed looking at the 6A brackets that 4 of the 8 teams still playing were on the Schedule for Colquitt County this season, Now that says something about the strength of schedule they play, granted the Norcross one was a scrimmage

@Sportsnut Let the haters keep hating and them Cats will keep winning. We get a little more respect on this blog than the other one. This a kinder, gentler Nobody wants to give Lovejoy props. we’re used to that by now. I guess the road to the state championship doesn’t go through Grayson after all.Looks like its gonna have to come through Lovejoy though. 12 Oaks Stadium. Its not to late. We’ve got room on our bandwagon. Cmon jump on.

Sal, based on the bracket games this weekend, the most Gwinnett County schools that could remain is 4 because those eliminated lost to other Gwinnett County schools.

This has been a rough last couple weeks for us folks in the Grayson community. First, we had to suffer the loss of our savior Mitt Romney in the presidential election. Now, Mickey and his boys lose to N. Gwinnett. Well, we have a hunting season to look forward to and hopefully my boy will get into Gainesville College this spring.

@ MC Hawks & hawksfan. Congrats on your win but next week…..Welcome to the dungeon. North Cobb’s Defense is too physical and the Offense is fast and multidimensional. The hawks D will be grabbing their knees in the 3rd quarter. Ask Valdosta & L. Hughes.

@Bart I understand why you would say that about Jennings based on what you saw last night, but I have to remind you that it is also up to coaching to put players in positions to be successful. Lovejoy defense was in his face all night, particularly when our best pass blocker went out to injury. With that said, the coach can’t wait until 4th qtr to realize that he would have to move the pocket and run rollout plays. Lovejoy was too big and strong for simple drop backs on every play. When he FINALLY moved the pocket, and aloud Jennings to see the field without rushers baring down, Jennings was extremely accurate. Another dis-heartning thing was the sandlot trick plays that were attempted early in the game. It sent a msg to Lovejoy that we can’t compete with you straight up. That fosters no respect. We have ab explosive running back who is not used effectively and we run too many horizontal plays…not enough vertical passing. We realized as fans that you can’t run stretch plays on LJ and they were not going to allow Jennings to run, so that’s why you use your running back (who by the way is a sophmore who has not been allowed to shine as much as he could have. LJ wanted to make Jennings pass the ball; well that’s what he does best. Don’t send him up the middle on option read…not for this game at least. You can’t call plays from the field because you can’t see everything. Offensive Coordinators should be up in the box to see what we “dumb” fans see. Now, I’m not saying Marietta would have won or not, but you never know what could happen in a game. That was shown last night when LJ practically tried to give us the game on penalties; but we were unable to capitalize (in my opinion) due to play calling on offense. The defense played solid, but were put on the field way too often and too quickly. You just can’t expect them to hold for that long.

Anyway. goodluck to LJ. They deserve more respect in this playoff run.

What are the quarterfinal match-ups? Colquitt at Parkview, Norcross at Camden, Mill Creek at North Cobb and North Gwinette at Lovejoy, right?

Going in reverse here because I must first agree with Lovejoy#1. This is something many try but fail to accomplish. Not looking ahead is patience. Patience is a virtue. One game at a time is like breathing for some, necessary. Oh yeah, we do have love for our kids, period.
@ Big Blue Fan == I can tell you saw the game and are not just one of those blowhards talking trash. Youy are correct in your assesment on Jennings and the performance from last night. Great talent, bad coaching. Trying to ride him and him alone was a mistake. All the points you made are valid. I only take exception with your last remark about the blame lies with bad offensive play calling, esp-ecially after those penalties. Lovejoy’s D plays harder the closer their backs get to the goal line. No disrespect to Marietta’s players or their coachs but this is what Lovejoy does. They did the same to Joshua Dobbs and Cole Seagraves. 2 seconds are all you have. You better run it, throw it, do something because they will be there. Many of them.
@ LovejoyDad == It was not so kind before when I was having it out with all of Region 1. From Camden to Brunswick, I thought I had stumbled into the NFL by mistake in a dream. Sliced bread, the car, refrigerated air were all surely invented there. They are still alive with Camden and Colquit but so are we. We are back and it will be as usual, Lovejoy doing what they do and “Put Dem Paws On Em”

@BigDawg – The Grayson band was cut in size dramatically when Archer opened. I also heard that 30% or more were out of town due to holiday travel. That’s one reason I hate the game on Friday after Thanksgiving. Why didn’t the NG band play? Other than when they weren’t supposed to be that is. ;-)

Good luck moving forward!

THE_ULTIMATE_WARRIOR….Mill Creek won’t be intimidated and North Cobb has not faced a Gwinnett team yet, so how does anyone know what will happen…Show some respect and let the game play out.


November 24th, 2012
3:31 pm

@ Big Blue Fan- I agree that Bart was unfair with his assessment of Jennings, but I’m not sure I agree with calling out the play calling. Marietta knows that there best defense is a quick start leading to an early lead. Most high school teams aren’t built to come from behind. Marietta was unable to capitalize to build that early lead because Jennings was rattled. They had there chances: Mathis to Harris (Harris drop) would have been a score, and Jennings didn’t keep his eyes down field long enough on another play to realize Harris had broken free up the middle and would have been wide open for another score.

Bottom line – Lovejoy was too strong on the defensive line, and Marietta failed to build that early lead when they had the chance. It comes down to two plays really, and I think Marietta had the chance to put the Lovejoy D on their heels, instead of giving them the confidence to tee off the way they did.


November 24th, 2012
4:40 pm

@ Knockahoma == Not meaning to say it is not true what you are saying. it is. What you must understand is that this is what Lovejoy does. What you saw was not a game plan for defending Marietta, this is what they do every friday night. The exact same thing no matter the opponent. They say ” You Have 2 Seconds, 2 Seconds. Throw it, run it or you will see them” This is their way of thinking. Every down is 4th and inches, offensively and defensively.
