Did the other schools on the list Recruit players to come in a play for a school like Calhoun does? Daick Rogers was going to school in Rome. The headcoach brother son was brought in to play QB the last couple of years. How long before the GHSA puts the smack down on the Yellow Jackets?

Having the record for most regular-season wins doesn’t mean anything. It’s just interesting.

Although I do count about 20 state titles that were won during these streaks.

Macon County’s win streak was from 1991-87? Interesting. Maybe the AJC should not have outsourced its copy editors
