One year ago, Austin Hardin kicked a 58-yard field goal with just seconds left to help Marist to a huge road victory over Southwest DeKalb. This year, the War Eagles are at home and breaking in a new quarterback in the GPB-TV game of the week. … After appearing on the GPB.org Game of the Week last Friday, No. 8 Kell is once again on the road, this time heading to the Bone Yard to face No. 5 East Paulding. The Raiders are averaging 42 points per game this year, and were led last week by Mitchell Webb (265 passing yards) and Thomas Wooley (109 rushing). … No. 9 ML King’s offense is starting to look unstoppable with Jonquel Dawson and Blake Tibbs lighting up scoreboards. Tibbs had two scores one week ago in a win over Collins Hill. Dawson, Tibbs and Jamonde Hunter welcome Westlake to Hallford Stadium. … Mill Creek will put its undefeated record on the line at Mountain View likely without quarterback John Russ. The senior suffered a mild concussion one week ago. … Defending Class AAAA champion Chattahoochee travels to face Creekview seeking its second straight win on the road. … Kenyan Drake and No. 7 Hillgrove host South Cobb as the Eagles will try and contain Drake, who has scored eight touchdowns this year. … No. 6 Walton lit up Milton earlier this season. Now Lassiter and Eddie Printz, who threw for nearly 400 yards one week ago, host the Eagles. … No. 8 North Gwinnett and Collins Hill square off with both teams looking to avoid a crippling region-opening defeat in Region 7-AAAAA. … Walton will look to keep Roswell on the deck with an offense led by Tyren Jones and Parker McLeod. … Mays thumped Miller Grove 35-0 one year ago, but the Wolverines defense has improved and is allowing just 114.5 yards per game this season. The two will tango Saturday at Grady Stadium.
