I know this is hard to believe but the AJC makes a mistake about a game or story and it gets posted then someone says woo thats wrong! AJC catches it several hours later but you have posted about it. Now your post(s) look stupid since AJC has corrected it.
Probably the case here another person is confused about the readers posts. The AJC now has the correct story up but leaves your posts up. Makes for some confusion here I know because it happened to me before I caught the mistake, posted, then hours later AJC catches it and made me look like I was crazy writing what I did.

@Johnny Too Good == Yeah. I heard Trevino Huff went off. A couple touchdowns and about 250 in total offense. DHHS can make the playoffs this year. That would be great for their program as they try to re-establish themselves.

Camden74 – Good buddy we still can’t really tell how good we are. Maybe we’ll know enough to have an idea where we stand after Burke County in two weeks. Coach Pruitt’s main objective since he has been at Coffee is to instill confidence into young men that have always ‘expected’ to lose when playing a Camden or Lowndes or Colquitt or Valdosta. He’s starting to get the message through. Especially as the older classes have graduated. Our strength and conditioning program and facilities are having an impact. The “Development Program” has resulted in Coffee starting 3 ninth graders and a slew of sophomores this year. Like coach. The players expect to win every game during the regular season and take the #1 seed into the play-offs. So…. I guess the answer to your question is yes. So let’s play some football.

@Camden74, I think so. I would like to see Coffee win the region, but right now Coffee just needs to take it one game at a time.

Norcross High Head Coach States the following:
Ridwan Issahaku was moved from quarterback to corner and Malcolm Galloway is at the other corner.

#“These guys are as good or better than the two corners we had,” Maloof said.
Explains alot to me because he never probably really cared for my son
The next 9 games will determine if those kids are better than 2 of the best corners to ever step foot on Norcross campus. To keep it fair he(Maloof) has to protect the corners he’s got because it’s the weak link and that comment was made prior to BTW game. Akins/Simp would have competed not saying they would have stopped BTW but final score of 55-0 is not happening with those at corner.
But then again I’m a dad so maybe I’m just thinking like a dad not a coach…….lol

CoffeeC100, CoffeeTrojan#44……How good is Ware County? This is you guys year to step up, there’s no dominate team in R1, 6A this season. Better take advantage while you can…….. :-)

Camden74 – Ain’t that the truth. We’ll just take then one at a time.

The Whitewater/Ware question is a tough one.

Whitewater had a harder time adjusting to the Coffee spread. They were caught out of position several times.Ware not so much. I watched the Ware County video of the game over on the 6A vent. The announcers compared the Coffee Pistol to Gainsville 4 or 5 times. You may enjoy watching it.

The Whitewater starters are indeed better than Ware but they have no depth. And you can’t defense the spread without relieving your starters now and then. Ware’s rushing defense was better but not much. Whitewater’s pass defense was better but not much. Overall IMO Whitewater is the better team but again not by much.

Both Ware and Whitewater were exhausted by the 3rd quarter. Coffee is deep on both sides of the ball and pretty much changed out the entire O and D lines in the third and fourth quarters. Whitewater nor Ware’s lines could stand up to that. Neither team adjusted well at halftime.

Coffee has two weeks to prepare for Burke County and their Mr. Everything Green. The general consensus is that Green must not be allowed to break the linebacker plane. Of course that opens up the receivers crossing between the safeties and Linebackers. So we’ll just see who out-coaches whom

Good. luck next week. Let’s play some ball

Forgot to mention their offenses. Whitewater is HUGE but they don’t blow big holes. and they tire easily. Ware is quick as usual and has a strong, hard hitting tailback. Ware held their blocks longer and looked more comfortable on the field. I give the edge to Ware. Overall both teams appear to be improved over last year. I fully expect them to win out their regions the remainder of the year,

@Coffee100 – Excellent rundown of the Whitewater and Ware teams. I am surprised Ware was not more effective on defense. They played us real tough in our scrimmage game, but that was just scrimmage. The way you guys handled them has gotten the attention of the rest of us in Region 1.

HEY sportsnut. I’ll be around to help sing the paises of our beloved wilcats. Good win over Mundy’s Mill. They actually may have a decent team this year. I can’t make it to Moultrie this year. but that is probably be the only game I miss unless my sister makes me go see her daughter in the Griffin Bear band, lol. Our Cats have a real shot this year but this week will be hard with Colquitt coming of a loss at Hoover and we were never really tested Friday night. Gonna be an interesting next couple weeks.Go Wildcats and beat Colquitt.
