Class A Blog: Top seeds advance; No. 10’s pull upsets

By S. Thomas Coleman
For the AJC

Public school No. 1 seeded Seminole County squeaked into the second round of the playoffs, while private school top seed Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy won easily. Meanwhile, both 1o seeds — Dooly County and Holy Innocents’ — pulled upsets.  Here’s a look at what went down Friday night, as well as next week’s match ups.

PUBLIC

Upper Bracket

No. 1 Seminole County 21, No. 16 Wilkinson County 14. Seminole County got one of its big weapons back just in time and thwarted an upset big by the Warriors. Thomas Aiken, Seminole County’s 6-0, 230-pound sophomore running back, missed the entire regular season serving a lengthy suspension in alternative school. He returned to the field with a vengeance, rushing for 129 yards and a touchdown to lead a ground attack that gained nearly 400 yards, according to the Albany Herald.

No. 9 Charlton County 35, No. 8 Commerce 21

No. 5 Johnson County 29, No. 12 Emanuel County Institute 20

No. 4 Irwin County 49, No. 13 Trion 26

Lower Bracket

No. 3 Clinch County 30, No. 14 Claxton 0

No. 6 Hawkinsville 17, No. 11 Mitchell County 12. The Red Devils trailed at 6-3 at halftime but came back to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2006.

No. 10 Dooly County 37, No. 7 Lincoln County 13. The Bobcats sent legendary head coach Larry Campbell and his team home after the first round for the first time since 1996. Dooly County, which beat Lincoln County in the semi-finals last season, scored 28 consecutive first-half points to take a 28-7 lead at the half. Quarterback Kereon Merrell threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score.

No. 2 Marion County 30, No. 15 Turner County 0. The Eagles dominated as Johnny Royal ran for two scores while Lorenzo Smothers and Terence Riley added rushing touchdowns as well.

No. 4 Calvary Day 42, No. 13 First Presbyterian 35. Quarterback Michael Peterson threw five touchdown passes, two to Derrick Kirkland and the game winner to Milan Richards with just over two minutes left in regulation to lift the Cavaliers into the quarterfinals for the first time since 1999.

Lower Bracket

No. 3 Aquinas 42, No. 14 Savannah Christian 14. The Irish led 21-7 at halftime and pulled away in the second half. Savannah Christian took away the run, yielding just 82 yards on the ground, so Aquinas took to the air as sophomore quarterback Liam Welch threw five touchdown passes, three to Chris Lambert.

No. 6 Mount Paran Christian 31, No. 11 Our Lady of Mercy 24. The Eagles beat the Bobcats for the second time this season as Dorian Walker and Taylor Trammel combined for 203 yards rushing. Mt. Paran won the season opener for both teams, 36-7.

No. 10 Holy Innocents’ 27, No. 7 Landmark Christian 17. Senior Clay Pfohl ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns, and Trey Wright added a 65-yarder to help the Bears defeat Landmark for the second time this season. Holy Innocents’ won 29-28 on Nov. 1.

Congrats to HIES.. Great victory .. Keep playing well all the way to the dome. Very disappointed the way our season ended. 8-0, then 0-3… Injuries to key players was crucial and crippling, but still a good season. I must vent 4 a moment…..Bloggers and fans knew this team was young but proved very capable of competing against some great teams throughout the season but in some crucial times we were out coached , had some questionable play calling as well as defensive alignments / schemes and No visible adjustments were made. HIES made adjustments. That was very obvious, now I’m not a coach by no means but it was very obvious to myself and plenty of fans that something wasn’t / isn’t right. Our staff needs to look in the mirror and be honest with themselves , they know who they are. At certain times throughout the season, it seemed as if we played not to lose instead of playing to win .. This team has to much potential because of their youth. That’s our advantage for future. We must improve to be a more of a contender and that starts with improving coaching. Now let say I believe a good staff I really believe but something’s MUST change to go to next level. I’m just saying things I believe others won’t say …. Great season War Eagles.

War Eagle, Do you have any more specific points. Not saying you are wrong but main problem I saw was to few boys and to many injuries. I will say the pass calling when the Ref couldn’t even hold the ball spelled trouble but it was desperation.

@ LanFan ……. To few players and injuries was major issue, but I’m referring to overall scheme of team… Offense / Defense. Lets go back to 2011 State Championship game, We could of won that game, but it RB left, RB right, RB up the middle. Is that all we can do.We had one of the best receivers in the state (Josh Nobles)…. Last year in several games we would run regardless whether would was moving the ball or not, we would pass if things got tough.. And it came back to bite us in the end. This year was a very unique situation young and nobody expected to team to accomplish what it did, but the stepped up to the plate and handled their business. Now the coaches have to take advantage of that scenario barring injuries. A few times this season we got up on teams and didn’t slam the door shut, meaning we called the plays just to hold on. Our defense played lights out this season being so young, but sometimes played toooooo basic and simple and had that bend but don’t break mentality. Which let teams back in games sometimes. Defense is meant to be aggressive not passive. I’ll use HI games for example, they ran same the plays over and over and over and over, Was our coaches (DC) blind to that. Everyone else in the stands could see, but I didn’t see ANY adjustments. We are not a power team regardless of what the Coaches think, lets take what the other teams give us, If its passing that game lets pass, THEN the run will open up for sure, If we can run then lets still work on our passing, because somewhere down the line you need to be able to. Spread the ball around on offense, we had toooooo many athletic kids that was never used to full their full potential. Let / coach the players to play to full athletic ability instead of to fit scheme that has worked in past with less athletic kids. 1 RB, 1 WR was used in the past to win but now we have several to use ONLY if coaches take advantage of all of them now, not 2-3 years down the road. You will only know what players can do in a game if you use them. MY biggest concern now is that I know we have a good young team that is majority 9th-10th graders so lets push the envelop and maximize what we have and develop / add to to make this team great. But the Coaches must change their philosophy, mesh together more to take a step to the next level.

I don’t have a dog in the fight between Region 7 and Region 5 fans. However, it is a fact that Region 7 went 1 for 3 in their games last night, but #16 Wilkinson took Public #1 to the wire and Calvary Day had to score a TD with 2 minutes to go to beat First Presbyterian. That 1-3 could have just as easily been 3-1.

BTW, I don’t say that in support of or against any poster.

War eagle – if you want you can take a test and become a community coach I am sure the landmark coaches would love for you to join them with your coaching wisdom.

Biggest issue last night d was that you were missing a four year starter at lb. As for running the same play it was the veer game and power. Most teams that run these plays, run them over and over and over. If one person is out of place it is usually for a big gain. Go look at a tech game…same plays over and over and if one man is out of place it normally a big play.

And bringing up the 2011 state championship I guess you didn’t realize that our Qb had major shoulder issues and could not throw the ball. If you watched from the beginning of that year we threw the ball many times amd then the Qb got hurt and actually missed a game. After that landmark didn’t throw it but only a couple of times a game.

@ dville …….No community coaching for me, plus I’ve heard to many bad story’s of people wanting to come in and help with different sports but was ran off due to it not being the Landmark way. Whether is true or not don’t know. Missing our LB was difficult for the team, I just know better adjustments could of been made. And as far as the veer game, it’s for the birds. nobody will win with that style anymore… hoping and praying someone will be out of place won’t work mainly because kids are bigger and faster now and alot more athletic. Ga.Tech will get rid of Johnson this year, because they are tired of losing in the ACC. And for 2011 I didn’t know about an hurt shoulder, but that proves how a team needs to be a dual threat to win . We have a great young QB, who I believe will be just as good of better than ELCA’s QB when his career is done plus a host of other great young players, lets get this machine going now and improve / revamp certain things about the program to help us get to that elite status….

LOOKING BACK ON ROUND1 ( PUBLIC )

IMPRESSIVE ONES … Region 2 ( 3-1 ) Clinch Co, Irwin Co, & Chalrton Co all taking care of business and moving on. Only blemish was #15 Turner Co losing to #2 Marion Co. Also need to throw Dooly Co in the impressive group ….. going on the road as a #10 seed and putting it on #7 Lincoln Co 37-10.

NOT IMPRESSIVE … Seminole Co !! The #1 seed on the Public side “struggled” with a 4-6 #16 seed ( Wilkinson Co ) winning 21-14. This is just my opinion and I’m sure I will upset some fine folks down in South Georgia with this … BUT … I think Region 1 is the weakest Region in all of Class A football. I just think that will eventually catch up with Seminole Co in the playoffs …. “maybe” next week.

Thanks for your insights. I don’t have a kid on the team but do have kids at the school for many years so I am only watching as a fan. Personally I had less problems with most of the coaching this year than in the past. But I do agree with you that moving forward we have to foster all the talent. We have had a bad habit of relying on the few good player and not everyone. Hopefully our number climb next year and everyone grows. I am looking forward to the future.

LOOKING BACK ON ROUND 1 ( PRIVATE )

IMPRESSIVE ONES … Region 6 ( 3-1 on Private side with one Region 6 team beating the other ) Darlington ( beating Christian Heritage ), Mt Paran, and Mt Pisgah with all nice wins. #10 Holy Innocents beating #7 seed Landmark 27-17 and a 51-0 beatdown by Prince Ave also needs to be mentioned as “impressive”.

NOT IMPRESSIVE … Calvary Day, hey you got the win, but a 42-35 win over #13 First Presbyterian Day isn’t “impressive” from the Region 3 Champs. DEFENSE wins Championships and you better find one before Round 2 and that running game Prince Ave has.

If I read correctly Irwin County had six backs go for over 40 yards rushing last night as they rushed for something like 450 as a team…that’s pretty darn impressive. even though no one anywhere but Ocilla thinks they Indians have a chance to win it all, if they keep plugging away they may surprise some folks

@ Landmark “fans”…I really don’t understand how you can be upset about losing to a team with players who were bigger, faster, stronger, healthier, and older than your guys. Just because you lose doesn’t mean you get outcoached or something is wrong with your program. I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but yours just doesn’t make much sense to me.

That veer game that is for the birds sure isn’t for the Gators….Go Eagles G.A.T.A.

Congrats Holy Innocents’ on advancing to the 2nd round and best of luck the rest of the way to all teams still playing.

@SwampLizard, Do you really want Mt Paran to beat Aquinas because you are scared of Aquinas or because the likes of a few delusional fanaticals, aka SamRoney and CSRA706? There are a lot of good people at Aquinas so don’t base your opinion on those two. I do think Region 7 was down this year. They are more like the Big 10 of Class A. Aquinas is like Ohio St, FPD is like Michigan St (good but not great), and then Lincoln County and Wilkinson County are like Michigan or Penn St, great programs once that no longer are.

Mt Paran faithful: I just watched some of your film on my sons hudl account. You certainly a very nice field and lights, don’t expect the same at Aquinas. I also thought you guys were better than Pisgah the whole game until the final 6 minutes and then it looks like you guys imploded (2 straight off-sides when they had 4th and 10, missed 4th down attempt, missed coverages on final drive, etc). I certainly cant judge how you guys match up against Aquinas because I don’t know how good the competition you were going against is. My take on Aquinas is that they have very good skilled players. At least 4 will be playing on the division 1 level and they can run the ball if given (Jr RB Garnett, already offered by Duke, had 308 yds and 284 yds rushing against playoff teams First Pres and Lincoln County, respectively), and they can pass if the opposition tries to take away the run (Soph QB Welch threw for 192 yds 5 TDs and 280 yds, 3 TDs against playoff teams Savannah Christian and Wilkinson County, respectively). Their defense is certainly not as good as their offense and they are not a large deep team as expected from a very small school, with only about 15-16 regular players. We hope you guys have a safe trip down I-20 Friday night and we look forward to a great entertaining Friday night.

@War Eagle I just want to say that I hate it when people do what you do. Our coaching staff is one of the best. Coach Ross (DC) spends countless hours coming up with different schemes to defend teams that are bigger, faster, and stronger. Coach Brantley (OC & HC) is one of the best offensively minded coaches in the state. We have a plethora of experience on our coaching staff. Two having played in the NFL and at least four have played D1 football. They know what they are doing when it comes to the game of football. We make adjustments, we spread the ball around, we run the opposing team’s offense all week during practice against our first string defense. We had at least 6 or 7 different people line up in the back field and run the ball this season. We had about that same amount catch the ball the season. Our offense is not predictable and we play for the win. We do not play in an effort to just not lose. We change up who plays where on defense each week depending on what the other team runs and who they have. Our coaches are not waiting for the team to develop or anything like that. They do recognize that our talent level is quite high in the next few years, but they always look at the present not what is going to happen down the road. These coaches know what they are doing so don’t bash them. If you want to know, my name is Michael Johnson, I am number 70 and I have been the starting center the past two years. I played my final game against HI the other night and cried my eyes out on the 50 yard line long after everyone had gone up to the locker room. So all I have to say is how dare you sit behind a computer screen and insult some of the greatest men and coaches I have ever known. If you want to talk crap about my team, let your name be known and know what you are talking about.

War Eagle If you have a problem I would first advise that you go directly to the source and let the coaching staff know instead of going on a public blog. This kind of talk in the public does nothing for our program. While I agree with almost everything Dville said, I for one do not want someone like you near our program. I hope that you are just worked up over a big loss, but if this how you truly feel it might be best that you go to another school. As a proud alumni and former football player I could not be more proud of our players and coaches. Landmark is a special place and I am thankful for the coaches and the difference they made in my life.

@Augusta68..I never felt comfortable against Pisgah even though we had 2 score lead, that QB is a difference maker and we gave him to many chances. And obviously we did ourself no favors in last few minutes but they did what good teams do took advantage and won with 40 seconds on clock and deserved region title. We havent faced a great 20-25 carry a game back yet this year, we have faced some outstanding dual threat QB’s “OLM, Landmark, Pisgah and some serious speed at skill positions OLM and Pisgah.” Our last 2 games have been against teams we have already played so its going to be fun to travel and see different jerseys.

and don’t hide with any pen names. I’m not against pen names, until you use personal insults to try
to make your point on a difference of opinion. If you missed it, I even took up for the “sav dawg”, who wanted to know what a few penners had cited Sav. Christian as “unsportsmanlike” about, as I missed any “unsportsmanlike” actions. Note I said I missed the items, not that they didn’t happen.

I honestly wish the best for every player on that field … I don’t dislike Aquinas players because of Sam & CSRA. But when you have those two asking for it, you just need to give it to them sometimes.
As far as the team I have ties to and me being worried about Aquinas … I promise that’s not the case at all. I have bigger concerns than your team or any other ….. other than Darlington this week. One at a time.

So, Seminole Co has a student who is suspended and removed from the high school and has to attended the alternative school, but length of his suspension is not based on units of time within the school calendar (six weeks, nine weeks, quarters, semesters, etc.) or even a set number of weeks or days, but by the football schedule, so that he will be rehabilitated and ready to return to the high school environment just in time for the playoffs? Interesting!
And yes, I do realize it could have been a fortunate coincidence, and that I am speaking about a situation of which I have absolutely no knowledge of. :)

I hate to hear that about the ELCA QB, especially since he is a senior. Even though he is the main threat on offense, I don’t see it affecting them that much because the strength of their team is the defense. They are so big and fast I don’t see how anybody can score enough points on that defense to beat them. They have at least 4 maybe 5 legitimate D1 SEC players on that defense.

@ Southside War Eagle …… I’m sure the ELCA “D” is “flattered” that you think they have 4 or 5 D-1 players on defense, but that’s not the case …… 2 ( maybe 3 ) if you count a junior. Now I will say the ELCA “D” is “very tough” and they can trot out 13 or 14 “football players” to play on that side of the ball. It’s just they have been very well coached and they all handle their “resposibilities” really well. The ELCA “D” has given up 41 points in 10 games …. and most of those have come against 2nd string players ( JV ) …. or with the help Refs.
