Tucker was overall the better team but the turnovers, wow. Congrats to Coach Lamar on being region champs in his second year. Now the fun begins!

Sounds like Tucker had a bad game. I didn’t see it, but I wouldn’t say it was the weather. Temp was mid-’50s at kickoff, and I’m pretty sure the action of the game kept the teams warm throughout (temp at game’s end was mid-’40s).

Congrats to Tucker. They have played some very tough games this season, and gutted them all out so far. That’s the sign of a team that has great esprit de corps, along with talent that consistently shows up on the field when it counts.

There you go, CANNON. East Paulding rolls Allatoona to make the playoffs, and for good measure – like I said to look for – Rome goes on the road and gets upset by Woodland. So who does your unit get next? Creekside? If so, it certainly seems like a winnable game. You all might have a decent year after all …

I attended my very first Tucker game in support of my close friend and frat brother Coach Jarvis…..from sight they appear to be a top level team with loads of talent and D1 quality athletes, but it did not translate on the field. It may have been an off night or fluke, but I was not overly impressed with the overall product. I still can not see another 5A team taking them out but Mays made like 2 or 3 mistakes that were gift wrapped for Tucker. congrats to Coach Jarvis for a successful season and great run at the region title!

Congrats to tucker. There experience at winning the big game
was evident tonight. With that said, I was at the game and
my Mays Raiders had that game. Both defenses played really hard
but our offensive line play tonight was soft and too much
Pass calls in my opinion. Those raiders played toe toe
neither tucker who did not impress..

We may surprise people in the playoffs. Go raiders !!

Going to enjoy 5A R8 vs 5A R6 playoff match-up. Heritage is certainly the weakest in R8 but the team is very young with first year coach. The offense was finally rearranged for the last two games. HOPEFULLY, it carry over but it will be the upset of the century to get past Tucker.

Go Pats!

Tell the truth (Titletown USA) the last turnover by Mays saved Tucker!!! Mays beat the crap out of Tucker tonight . I don’t see Tucker getting far if that’s what they have to offer. It was not the Tucker I’ve heard about. Not to mention Tucker can’ t last the full four quarters playing hard ball. They looked flat as if the where depending on penalties to keep them close. That effort they put up tonight will not work going into post season. Tucker is use to beating teams by 30+ points so they don’t have to work hard all four quarters , and it showed up in their body language tonight . Not impressed by Tucker tonight at all… Proud to be a Raider!!!

First, I want to congratulate Tucker on a well fought battle against MAYS, and become our region 6AAAAA champs…@ to the MAYS family you belong….!!

Just got back from my trip to Gainesville / Flowery Branch game, needless to say D. Watson is a one man show, he runs, he passes, he kicks and he makes decisions on the field, and did I say he runs. Gainesville has a little running back #1, in time he will develop into a solid RB, if he gets in the weight room and drink some JAG juice. Lol., MLK will have no problem with a “W”, if they play error free ball, and play sound defense, Flowery Branch is very small and slow and really not that physical, they do have a QB that can makes some plays but with the right amount of pressure on him, he will surely fold. Tonight he threw 2 interceptions while under pressure…Region 6 5A, I see a clean sweep

Region 6AAAAA, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t have a clean sweep of region 8AAAAA next week.

GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY TONIGHT UNTIL YOU MEET REGION 6AAAAA

@ PatsPride, this is my second time seeing him play back to back, did you read my post, I have nothing but a good review on him, but you play in a weak region and have not played a solid defense like we have in our top 4 teams. Mr. Watson is a beast, I’ll vote for him for POY, he is an athlete which can make plays, unfortunately, it takes a complete 11 men on the field to win. You guys are reigning “State Champs, but from what I’ve seen Gainesville, is one dimensional….

I got what I wanted. A close game, win or lose, with Tucker. Even though we lost, game ball goes to the Mays defense in my opinion. Holding Tucker to 16 points when they’re used to dropping 30 plus is a feat. That offense though… very suspect and i wasn’t pleased at all. Tucker’s D kept sniffing out the sweep plays, but the Mays coaches kept tryna run em. smh. I won’t say I wasn’t impressed with Tucker because I’ve seen what they can do. Very dangerous team once they cut the penalties and turnovers down. They have the athletes to make a run. Congrats to your 2013 Region 6-AAAAA champs, Tucker!! Lets go Raiders, Jaguars, Tigers, and Lions!!

Michael Tanks the so call new head coach at swd, should have stayed out of coaching, or maybe just stick to riding a bike. He is back to what he is used to doing for the 9 or 10 years that he called himself a coach. 2 and 8 must be his favorite number, because that is the record Tanks post every year he has tried to coach. Everyone know how and why you were able to go 8 and 2 when you tried to coach at Decatur HS. Get out of coaching and please stay out. Find something that you are good at. Football coaching is not your thing.

@Cannon I want to congratulate the East Paulding Raiders for finishing the regular season at 7 – 3 and finishing third in the region. I hope know one really takes the Cannon Serious, he obviously has a personal problem with our coach. Let me give you a few stats:
1. Our J.V. and 9th grade finished 6 – 1. To say that our program is falling apart is crazy. We beat all the county schools in sub-varsity play.
2. Cannon talks like we play know defense, look back at some of the other post if you don’t believe me, however, we finished our region ranked #1 in fewest points given up during the year and I think 7th in the state in 5A.
Hey Cannon, why not just support the program and the kids, at least wait til after the season to be critical of the coaches. You are an embarassment to the Raider Nation.

Like many of you, I know first hand how good this Tucker team really is, and that is why tonight was so friggin’ baffling.

No swagger, no ball security, no killer instinct and NO BLOCKING by our offensive line particularly on run plays. Our offensive line play during the run continues to be our weakness. Our running backs are’nt getting off like we know they can because defenses are beating them to the hole. I don’t calim to be a coach, but this has become more evident as the level of opposition improved.

Besides the Center, who is playing beast-mode in the trenches and the sophomore who is trying hard, I don’t see championship effort from the others. It was so frustrating watching defenses run right by them and not even a hand in their chests as they ran by. They did well on most pass plays giving Farrar what seemed like minutes on some plays. That’s a plus, but our identity is that we will run you through the ground and that aint happenin!

I firmly believe this is the team to beat, but the penalties must be minimized and the fire level better grow in intensity.

Wow…..Reading through the blog and I am reading some suspect things! First off If Mays has a good team as everyone is bragging about, then why are all the Mays fans surprised that it was a low scoring, low margin of victory game? Secondly, Tucker does not know how to play 4 quarters is false! A 4 quarter game beat the top 3 teams in our region, Stephenson, MLK, and Mays! Turnovers are a part of the game and we create Turnovers, so Mays turning the ball over is giving us gifts as much as us taking the ball. Mays has a great squad and a great coach, don’t diminish a victory as if the other team didn’t come to play.
