TRIVIA

MaxPreps published an article this week on the coaches nationally with the most victories over the past 10 seasons. Without peaking, which Georgia coach made the national Top 10? (Answer Monday)

Answer to Thursday’s question: The two former Georgia high school players named to the NCAA’s Maxwell Award Watch List are QB Zach Mettenberger of LSU (Oconee County) and DL Stephon Tuitt of Notre Dame (Monroe Area).

Duluth should also be listed in this article. I think Cecil Morris won region titles in 72,73,75,80,83,85,86. I think they also won one in 69.

Duluth – You are correct. We skipped over Duluth. They are now added with eight region titles.

Fitzgerald should get an honorable mention on this list. They have won 14 region titles since there only state Championship in 1948.

Winning the most region titles without winning a state title once is a dubious honor at best.

Not an honor at all, Hubie. Just makes you glad when schools like that finally break through, like Gainesville. Great tradition at that school going back to the days of Billy Lotheridge.
