Where is the best ball being played right now in the state of Georgia, geographically. Is it the North side of Atlanta? Do the teams from Fulton and Cobb, along with Cherokee make the grade?
Does it reside in the East? Gwinnett has a hold on that or is it DeKalb? The Western side of the city does not hold much.

Could it be SW Georgia? Region 1 would make the claim. Or is it SE Georgia, where Camden rules.
Central Georgia would argue that it is the prime location with NSWR as it’s leader.

Could the best ball be played in the Southern Crescent. Composed of Henry, Clayton, Spalding, Fayette, Coweta and South Fulton?

No one would believe the answer.

The Milton streak ended in 1987, not 1997.

Congratulations to Meadowcreek on finally getting one in the win column. But I am curious. Why play a region schedule and put your program through all that losing when you are at an obvious disadvantage. Meadowcreek has the same issue that Cross Keys in Dekalb has, but at least they choose to play a non region schedule and while they still dont win much, at least it allows them to have a few more competitive games. A non region schedule would at least allow the kids to feel good about themsevles and not be subjected to blowout after blowout.

@Dekalb Guy, you are so right. I agree with you!!! I know some kids that won’t win one game om four years. I mean this is terrible for a kid. Atl least give them a chance to win or be competitive. Great point!!!

Good comments, guy’s. Clarkston also took that route. I do give credit to Druid Hills as they play a region schedule. Given that they are the smallest school in AAAAAA, they chose to play even though they knew they would be in over their heads. They are the only DeKalb school in AAAAAA and that is commendable considering there are others that had the opportunity to play in the highest class.

I hate to say this because I am a Carrollton guy. Lifelong fan actually and played there myself in the mid-90’s under Ben Scott. This info is incorrect on Charlie Grisham. His five state titles were won in the 60’s and 70’s. You are probably crediting him with the 1956 state title but he was an assistant on that team. The head coach was Hugh Maxwell. Grisham’s state titles were ‘61, ‘64, ‘71, ‘72 & ‘74.
