Greetings and happy Friday afternoon. I’m about to hop into that wonderful Atlanta pre-weekend traffic and head over to Gainesville for the announcement of East Hall High football star Sterling Bailey. So if you see a blue Ford F150 pickup truck creeping up fast in your rear-view mirror, be kind and move over a lane. I promise not to flash my headlights.
Bailey, a 6-foot-5, 235-pound defensive end, is set to make public his choice from an impressive college football scholarship offer list of more than 20 schools. His finalists are Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Tennessee.
His announcement is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. I plan to be in attendance and will pass on the news just as soon as humanly possibly. Please return to this very blog at or around that time if you want to find out.
Bailey is the first of two announcements this weekend from major in-state prospects. Justin Scott-Wesley, an athlete from Mitchell County High
