But he wasn’t fast enough to get a Tech offer. Good thing James Franklin is a better judge of talent than fading Paul Johnson.

Great game tonight and Laney somehow became a great team after a few loses this year. Lovett had to dig deep to win this one. A great effort from Grant and the rest of the Lions. Awesome game by both teams.

Calhoun plus 6 turnovers equal loss. Obvious Bendictine spends alot of time practicing stripping the ball. A good team but will probably get beat if team they play can avoid turnovers

Great win Lovett. And now two schools that are 235 miles apart will be forced to figure out where to play via two 2-hour car drives, an exit ramp McDonald’s and a piece of US Mint. Thanks a lot GHSA. It would take about one hours time to figure out a legit tiebreaker system for these situations, but instead we still keep acting out a scene from Friday Night Lights as if somehow its more romantic that way.
