I would like to congratulate Norcross for their Victory over our Camden County Wildcats. You outplayed and out coached us. You have an incredible team and I personally hope you run the table and get a well deserved state title. Please beat Colquitt next week. Your fans were really awesome. For our Camden County Wildcats we are all proud of you. Wildcats, you gave some great memories and we know the future looks awesome with undefeated teams coming up from middle school through 9th grade and JV. For the Seniors who played their last play at Camden, we thank you for your heart, passion and leadership over these last 4 years. This is my last post for 2012 and I look forward to Next Season.

@wildcatguy=Wow thanks!! Well i guess u now want Norcross to beat us why.Is it because u guys couldn’t or is it because u don’t like Propst.I guess when u loose all that we represent region 1 and we are brothers stuff goes out the window huh but its cool cause we’ve been the outcast of the region since Rush showed up anyway. But we don’t care cause we support out team all day and since u starting to sound like Bk with all this jv and 9th grade undefeated stuff. Well while u guys waiting on the young kids to get on varsity and do their thing a couple of years from now we will try to finish our mission then think about next year so we can do it all again because we have over half this team back with even more weapons so i guess we better win now in 2 or 3 years Lowndes and Camden 9th graders will be in high school and ready to take u guys to the title huh

@Wildcatguy, On behalf of the Blue Devil Nation… Thank you for the kind words…Camden had a great season one in which some teams only dream of…. I remember the game at the Corky Kell Classic several years ago, when Camden showed us why your always Nationally Ranked…Your program is first class, from the coaches, to the team, to the fans….

Very disapointed that GPB broadcast the Lovejoy game rather than the Norcross v Camden game. Guess I need to make a larger conribution so they can travel outside the Atlanta area. Or are they like the AJC & only cover Atlanta teams?

Congratulations Blue Devils! Bring home our alma-mater’s first State football championship.

We were 8-2 in the 1974-75 football season with 6 defensive shut outs and the rules then did not allow us to progress to any playoff games.

GO BLUE DEVILS!

Well, well, it would seem unlikely after last weeks turn(s) of events that Gwinnett County would now be down to only one representative in 6-A but that’s the case. I’m sure Mill Creek and Parkview played their hearts out as did North Gwinnett. However, the Bulldogs were victim of some very odd officiating down there in wonderful Clayton County. It seems the homeboys were allowed to do all the trash-talkin’ they wanted while the visitors from the north were expected to exhibit their Sunday school manners. Also, the NG band was curiously quiet during play this night in Jonesboro whereas last week it constantly regaled the crowd with raucous little ditties as the home team was snapping the ball. Whassup wid dat?? If you’re going to be obnoxious, do it with gusto and consistency! Norcross, it’s up to you to keep the trophy in Gwinnett for another year . . . oh and congrats. to Buford for keeping up the excellent 3-A play too!

@WildCatGuy: from all of the players, coaches, fans, and parents, your kind words and well wishes are very much appreciated! Out of all of the games that we’ve played this year, Camden County was our biggest and best competition. We are honored. It was a hard fought game against a formidable foe, and I’d be silly to think that the outcome couldn’t have gone the other way at any point in time during this game! I’m so very proud of my Blue Devils! Every team my baby has played on has been pretty horrible. This is the first time he’s ever been on a winning squad with great coaches and even better teammates. Again, we are honored and humbled by it all.

Don’t worry Camden, Colquitt has your back. Norcross is a great team but we are a great playoff team. GPB will broadcast this game and it should be a shootout. We have to play 4 quarters this time and we own the 4th quarter. Just ask Camden they found this to be true as well, LOL.

@Norcross Blue……. Tucker played Norcross in 1959 when ol’ Charlie Griffith was all everything,they moved the game to Avondale Stadium for the crowd was going to be huge,and it was. Well the score was Tucker 56, Norcross 0. So, I don’t think Tucker is afraid of you….

No one likes a coach who makes a “choke” sign across the field at a kid after a fumble (@ Camden 2011), taunts across the sideline at opposing coaches (Camden @ Colquitt 2012). No one likes a coach who accuses someone of hiring an-ex Colquitt coach to steal signals (Lowndes 2012). BTW: Superintendents do not like it when coaches call them out, no matter how successful they may have been. Do you actually think for one minute that this particular issue is anywhere near being resolved?

No one likes a program associated with such buffoonery. Therein lies your answer. That is why you are viewed as a stepchild. Dude was looking for a job for a reason when he found Moultrie. Enjoy the relationship. It seems to work for both of you quite well. A mentality of “us against the world” can only carry you so far. It is manufactured and superficial. Ride it for as long as you can. True motivation is intrinsic.

For the record, we are not brothers, nor will we ever be (why would we want to be?). The scope of our program is national, not regional. State championships are A goal, not THE goal. Those will come as we continue to build young men who are best equipped to lead a productive and successful life. Region 1 is where we are assigned, just as was the case with Region 3. We play region games because we have to. Otherwise, no one would play us. We can’t get a home and home with ANYBODY anymore and have to pay schools to play us.

As for Norcross, congratulations. You are all class, top to bottom. Your kids earned it. It was good to see some healthy competition for a change. By healthy I am referring to intense, clean, sporting competition that is unfettered by provincialism (N vs. S Georgia), and envy. You will quickly notice the difference between Camden and Colquitt when they roll into your town this weekend.

You should win the entire ball of wax this year. I have seen many teams this year and yours is the one that stands clearly apart from the rest. Good luck the rest of the way. I hope our paths do indeed cross again soon. that means that we would both be experiencing a high level of success. As disappointing as the loss was, it was still worthwhile. We will grow from it. Wish it were this rewarding week in and week out.

Cathammer. You are so mad. You’ll be ok I promise. What exactly is THE goal? A national title? Please. You couldn’t make the final four with your best team in years and now it’s time to rebuild. Then come on the board attacking other teams that’s had your number. What are you 12? Sorry to the good Camden fans, we all have idiot fans

If we get our —es handed to us Friday then at least I’ll know it took an excellent team like Norcross to do it. Spitting on Rush is just an outlet and means nothing. Good luck to Norcross.. You guys could very well get the big one this year but then again so could we.

First off I would like to congratulate our Lovejoy Wildcats for another great unexpected win. Now let get down to business . I kind not believe some of the things I’m reading about Lovejoy players been disrespectful. Lets run it down for the Nieves ones. Early in the season we play a team down south Ga. I think they call themselves Colquitt County. For a team we had never seen even player our kids where called animals and this was one of the nice words. Our head coach who absolutely love his kids was ask ( HOW DO YOU DO IT) by one of there staff members. They’re head coach ran on the field and cursed the officials out for 5mins. Over a questionable call. It was so bad that his coaching staff had to pull him off the field. He should have been ejected . Well he wasn’t even hit with a delay of game. On top of that the official picked up he flag no call. But every week our kids have too read about what can of disrespectful kids they are. Also just for the record we have two touchdowns called back in that game talking about home cooking. And one more question for Colquitt county. Why do all the white people sit on the home side of your stadium and all the black people sit on the visitors side. We ask an were told that’s the way it has always been. Really,News Flash it’s 2012 Us Be Free Na.

To North Gwinnett. See we can spell Gwinnett in Clayton County. But your team couldn’t spell touchdown. But I’m not going there NG brought a great team down to Clayton County unlike Alpharetta who told there band parents they didn’t have the funding to bring the band. Really? A area where the average home runs about 350k. You can lie to the parent but why rob these young musicians the opportunity to be heard they work just as hard on there craft. N.G brought the Band for some great entertainment. For this I would like to say congrats on such a great program.
