Carrollton’s dominance; another remarkable night for Nick Chubb

Chubb watch: Cedartown running back Nick Chubb rushed for 370 yards and five touchdowns in the Bulldogs’ 42-28 win over Southwest Whitfield. “(He) probably had 150 yards called back by penalties,” Cedartown coach Scott Hendrix said in a text message. Chubb, who is committed to Georgia, now has 1,359 yards.

Upset: Westover ended a 13-game losing streak to Cairo and snapped the Syrupmakers 24-game region winning streak with a 14-9 win. Jysanti Richardson had two interceptions for Westover. The Patriots’ last win over Cairo came in 1993.

Ejection: Griffin coach Steve DeVoursney was ejected in the first quarter of the fifth-ranked Bears’ big win over No. 3 Stockbridge. After the Bears were called for offensive pass interference, Griffin’s bench was flagged twice for unsportsmanlike conduct, before DeVoursney was eventually ejected. The undefeated Bears rallied around assistant Antonio Andrews and senior quarterback Jaquez Parks, who accounted for 376 yards and four touchdowns.

Offensive explosion: No. 4 Monroe Area racked up 600 yards of offense in a 56-28 win over Lanier. Quarterback Stanton Truitt rushed for 273 yards and five touchdowns for the undefeated Purple Hurricanes. Truitt has committed to Auburn.

Rolling: No. 2 Carrollton’s dominant start to the season continued with a 51-0 win over Columbus. The Trojans held the Blue Devils to 85 yards, only nine coming on the ground. Through four games, Carrollton has outscored opponents 191-21.

Hot start: No. 6 Wayne County jumped out to a 21-0 lead in first four minutes and rolled to a 49-17 win over Richmond Academy. The Yellow Jackets are 5-0 for the first time since 1993.

This is the most wide open in AAAA I have ever seen. The top 10 is well balanced. Who isn’t balanced offensively. Will not make it to game 15. If your QB can’t throw. That team will not see game 15.

M22-you are right on the balance-though it looks like several regions are weak overall this year-1,7&8 look weaker(except for Monroe Area in 8-still untested).

Go Trojans!

I’m glad they mentioned us here but Columbus isn’t a good team. Many of the JV programs of the top ranked programs would beat them easily. Hope we get a test or two before the SC game.

I do not see anyone handling Carrollton this year. I have watched them place and this team is balanced and has depth. I believe they run the table 15-0 this year. They always have great teams, but this year is one of the best ones in a long time

Agree with GO TROJAN! Very disappointed that neither Oxford or Calhoun were a test.

@DawgFan — just curious, how many 4A teams have you actually seen play to justify your view?

@All Trojan fans. I agree that this has got to be one of the better teams we’ve had and I’ve been following high school football for a long time. Looks as though this is one of those teams where everything came together where you you have depth, size, speed and experience at all positions and a balanced attack. Sandy Creek is still Sandy Creek and until someone knocks them off they are the Team to beat but its good to know we have a team to go toe to toe with them. I wonder if they are scoreboard watching each week as we do? November 1, 2013 Carrollton, Ga. BE THEIR.

@REALLY, Well I have seen 4 of the top ten teams play. I have not been able to go watch Griffin, but plan to in the next few weeks. The teams I have seen I believe Carrollton is the best out of these teams. My opinion may change once I get to watch the Bears.
