As we get into the first week of football Friday’s in Georgia on GPB. I want to tell you a little about the schools that will be featured this week. The North Gwinnett Bulldogs of Suwanee will be taking on the Grayson Rams of Loganville Georgia.
North Gwinnett High School, located in Suwanee Georgia was established in 1958, their school colors are red, black, and white, and their school's commander in chief is Principal Ed Shaddix.
So, Hey did you know… that North Gwinnett high school was ranked by Newsweek Magazine as one of the top public schools in America?
Did you guys also know that last year, North Gwinnett High School seniors earned over $100 million dollars in scholarship money and that’s not including the HOPE scholarship?
Grayson High School, located in Loganville Georgia was established in year 2000, their school colors are Green, Gold, and Navy Blue and their principal is Mr. David Hopson.
With a student population of over 3,000, there seems to be no short of talent here.
So did you know that last year, while the Grayson community geared up for their rival game against Brookwood high school, a few students created their own Online Rap Showdown video on youtube that went viral?
The video showdown battle between Grayson and Brookwood even got the attend of Georgia native, America Idol host Ryan Seacrest, who created a voting poll on his website to determine whose video was the best and Grayson Won!
