Roll out the Red Carpet at the Georgia Dome… Your Recruiting Guide to the GHSA Finals on GPB

There will be 16 teams from all over the state competing for eight state championships on GPB starting Friday morning and finishing sometime around midnight Saturday. But even if you have no rooting interest in any of those 16 teams, just watching all the future big-time college and NFL talent should be compelling enough.

Football Fridays in Georgia Podcast: The One About the Finals

It's the podcast where Tommy Palmer joins Jon and Jackie for a discussion of the 8 title games at the Georgia Dome...

It's 8 games in 38 hours on Georgia Public Broadcasting. There are teams chasing titles for the first time and folks who have been there for title runs every year (it seems, anyway)...

Here's your preview...

The Grand Finale

The GHSA state championships for football are right around the corner. There are 16 teams left on the road to the Georgia Dome and by late Saturday night all eight champions for 2016 will be crowned.

GPB Sports is looking forward to broadcasting all eight games. For us it’s a little like Christmas, a little like New Years, and a little like a birthday celebration.

We will kick off our coverage each day at 10:00 am, so feel free to have breakfast at the championships with us both days.

Friday’s lineup looks like this:

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

We’re here…

Although, I would forever maintain that this was the fastest football season to go by in a LONG time. I asked a lot of friends that you know as well, Faithful Reader, and they agree that is was just IN FACT July.

The last eight games of the year are here and those of us at GPB have the privilege of putting them all on the air in a 38-hour span- starting Friday morning at 10 and ending Saturday night around midnight or so..

To celebrate, this thought came into my head this morning…

Prep Titles and the End of an Era

The Georgia Dome will always be a special place for me. I think back over past Prep football seasons and the amazing confines of the Dome always seem to come to mind. I have broadcast my Statewide “Georgia High School Scoreboard Radio Show,” live from there on occasion, and I’ve also been fortunate to be a part of Statewide Radio Network broadcasts through the years as well.

Battle for Gwinnett and State Championship Game Friday on GPB

Sometimes when you talk to the folks involved it’s hard to tell which is bigger…Gwinnett County football supremacy or a spot in the AAAAAAA State Championship Game? The winner will get both Friday night when the top-ranked Grayson Rams play host to the second-ranked Mill Creek Hawks in the state semi-finals on GPB.

A Sensational SemiFinal

This week on Football Fridays in Georgia on GPB-TV and we have a sensational semifinal matchup. The Mill Creek Hawks come into this one ranked number two in the polls, with a picture perfect 13-0 record and will collide with the top ranked 12-1 Rams of Grayson.

This is the second straight season Mill Creek has rolled into the semifinals with an unbeaten record and Grayson is unbeaten against teams from the state of Georgia, the Rams lone loss coming to the hands of the IMG Academy from Florida.

The Semi’s – Almost Championships

So, now it’s the Final Four in each of the classifications…

It’s the First Time for some folks (capitalization intentional) and, for others, it’s old hat…

My question for your, Faithful Reader, is:

The Semi’s – Almost Finals

The past three weeks have been tough ones for those teams which have now advanced to the Semi-final round of the GHSA Prep Football playoffs. The good news; there are still thirty-two teams remaining in the hunt for a Georgia Dome Trophy in eight classifications, Class A through Class AAAAAAA. The bad news; all of the remaining teams playing this week are championship caliber teams. Two teams will head to the Georgia Dome in each classification, and two teams will stay at home after this week’s play.
