why are public schools still playing private schools in the playoffs? private schools recruit their players and have no business whatsoever playing for the state title

Hats off to GAC. They have an excellent team and could easily be the state champs if that last kick was two feet to the left. They have a great running back and the QB ain’t bad. Calhoun’s gamebreakers won the game. Calhoun will be back in the dome for the sixth straight year.

You gonna be disappointed if you think Bowdon don’t have any speed. We have 5-6 backs that can take it to the house at any time.
