AA blog: What to look for Friday
Here’s what to look for Friday in Class AA:
- Will the No. 1 Lamar County Trojans be challenged this regular season? No opponent has come any closer to them than 21 points, and they’ve outscored the competition 305-88. They’re 7-0 and 4-0 in Region 4-AA. This week, they’ll visit the only other team with an undefeated 4-AA record, the Bleckley County Royals (6-1, 4-0). Should the Royals pull off the upset, there would be a three-way tie atop the region should Macon County (5-2, 3-1) also beat Monticello (3-4, 1-3). However, it’s more than worth noting the Trojans beat the Royals, 39-7, last year.
- The Bowdon Red Devils, ranked No. 8 out of 5-AA, have breezed through their schedule thus far, putting up 385 points while surrendering just 114. Now it’s time for a challenge. The Red Devils (8-0, 6-0) look to further cement their hold on the No. 1 seed against their rival, the Bremen Blue Devils (4-4, 3-3). While the Blue Devils’ record is unassuming, their role in the rivalry is anything but. Bremen is 5-2 against Bowdon since 2005, but the Red Devils won last year, 26-21.
- As for the remaining top 10, all but one team hosts an opponent with a losing record. The No. 7 Brooks County Trojans (7-1, 4-0 1-AA) travel to the Cook Hornets (4-3), but the Hornets are just 1-2 in region play. No. 2 Lovett (6-1, 1-0 6-AA) hosts Wesleyan (2-6, 1-1); No. 3 Greater Atlanta Christian (7-0, 1-0 6-AA) hosts Hapeville Charter (0-6-1, 0-2); No. 5 Calhoun (6-1, 4-0 7-AA) hosts Armuchee (1-6, 1-3); No. 9 Jefferson (5-2, 3-1 8-AA) hosts Social Circle (0-7, 0-4); No. 10 Vidalia (6-1, 5-1 2-AA) hosts Bacon County (3-4,3-3.) No. 4 Washington-Wilkes and No. 6 Benedictine are off this week.
