Predictions: Camden, Colquitt and Coffee will start strong in 1-AAAAAA

Region play begins in 1-AAAAAA this weekend, and the state’s toughest region gets right down to business with three games involving teams ranked in the top 10. Look for Camden County (over Valdosta), Colquitt County (over Lowndes) and Coffee (over Tift County) to take the early lead in the playoff race with victories on Friday. Allatoona will take sole possession of first place in Region 5-AAAAA by beating South Paulding, and Archer will do the same in 8-AAAAAA by beating a rejuvenated Dacula team.

I think East Hall will beat White County…

itsonlywrite… I could definitely see that happening if the Vikings offense keeps rolling because East Hall would most likely lose a defensive battle.

I wouldn’t be betting in favor of Towers in a game like this until they have proven themselves.

Mighty Mighty Wildcats, you think because Herron left is the reason we’re down a little,that’s got to be the lamest excuse I’ve heard lately, we have a young team, that lost 12 coaches to other job offers, we may be down a little but you ‘ll see how much we’ve lost tonght CAMDEN 31 VALDOSTA 10 GOOD LUCK TONIGHT

Camden 79 – I’ll be surprised if you put up 31 against our defense. I’ll also be surprised if we put up 31 on yours. I think it will be close and since our kicker is better than I think we win by 3. We will get over there about 5:30, maybe graze a few tailgates. Keep the burgers hot.

Nice call on the Colquitt/Lowndes game. Will be fun but the Packers are too focused on winning the region and this is step one in accomplishing that goal.
