A WIN and You are IN

I do not know where the season has gone. It seems like just a few days ago we were kicking off the season
with the Corky Kell Classic, followed by the doubleheader, the Battle of the Big Chicken, followed by
the Etowah at Centennial game in early September.

But lo and behold, its the first week of December and we are ready for the GHSA state football semi finals.
Just four teams remain in each division. 28 teams are left standing to battle it out for seven titles in six
divisions. On GPB Friday night we will be at Norcross where the top ranked and undefeated, 13-0 Blue Devils
will take on the road warriars of all road warriars, the Packers of Colquitt County.

Both these teams are excellent. Explosive and high octane offenses, and defenses that like to hit.
Both teams have beaten Camden County, a team that was ranked #1 much of the season. The Packers
beat Camden County 13-12 late in the regular season, while Norcross knocked off the Wildcats
34-20 last week in the quarterfinals.

So much is riding on the outcome of this weekend's games. With a win, you are in the state championship games at the Georgia Dome with a 50-50 shot at winning a state title. 28 teams remain, a final four in each division
and when the dust clears a final 14 will remain standing to play on Friday and Saturday on GPB for state titles.

Good luck to all, we will see you live from Norcross High School and Blue Devil Stadium live at 7:30 for our All
Access Pass pregame show with kickoff at 8pm. It is going to be quite a night for high school football and we will
keep you up to the nano-second on the scores from all the other games......Its a great time of year......
Its Championship Time!

All volunteers receive training, free parking and a catered meal provided by Carole Parks Catering.
