Week seven of the 2017 Georgia Prep football season saw few surprises as far as upsets were concerned, but some teams which were considered newcomers to title hopes this year, further solidified their new found positions as challengers for a championship trophy in early December at Mercedes Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta.
One of those teams is Troup, now 6-0 on the season, after a 71-16 romp past a very good Sandy Creek Patriot squad last Friday night. The Tigers have a high-powered offense and have made short work of most of their opponents in their unbeaten run thus far. Another team that has quietly made the transition to contender is Americus-Sumter. The Panthers topped the Cairo Syrupmakers, 31-15, in a key game this past weekend.
