The three-game round-robin that will determine the top three playoff seeds from 6-AAAAA begins on Friday when second-ranked Tucker meets No. 4 Stephenson. Tucker has won 20 consecutive games, and I give the Tigers a slight edge in making it 21, but nothing in this region will be decided until both teams play No. 3 M.L. King in the next couple of weeks. Lowndes and Valdosta also meet this week in the state’s biggest rivalry, and I expect Lowndes to come out on top and keep pace with Camden County.
Congratulations go out to David Foley of Alpharetta, who was last week’s winner in the High School Football Pickoff contest. Foley was the only contestant to correctly pick the winner in 14 of 15 games. Click here to sign up and participate in this week’s contest.
