The Final Four


We are now down to the final four in all five classifications in the
G.H.S.A. football playoffs. Its been fun so far, and now we get to
crank that fun up a few notches.

On the world wide web GPB will have the Gainesville-Burke County game.
Burke County comes into this one with a 12-1 record, the only loss to
Class AAAAA powerhouse Lowndes, 31-21. The rest of the way, the Bears
took care of business. Burke County is led by QB Donquell Green and
running back Corey Mayton. Coach Eric Parker has his team clicking on
all cylanders as they head into the semi finals.

The Red Elephants are also 12-1 on the season, their one loss coming at
the hands of the top team in class AA, the Buford Wolves. And Gainesville
is coming off one of the biggest upsets of the year by ending the 41 game
winning streak of the Sandy Creek Patriots. Gainesville has one of the top
players in the state in QB Deshaun Watson. You stat guys out there, try this
on for size. Watson has passed for nearly 3,000 yards and rushed for nearly
1,000 yards and can hit those numbers in Friday nights game. Coach Bruce Miller
knows who his go-to guy is and will go to him early and often.

On the TV side we will have the Grayson-Colquitt County game.
The Rams are 13-0 and ranked number two in the state. Colquitt
County is on a big time roll and coming off the upset of top ranked
Camden County.

Enjoy the semi finals.......I will see you at the state championships
next week, LIVE from the Georgia Dome.
