GPB Sports is busy bringing you the best high school football coverage in the known galaxy, and these next two weeks will be very special.

W2W4: What To Watch For- Week Eight

In 4A, one big rivalry game is on  the books this week for metro Atlanta. Mark and Jackie take a look at that one and the rest of the weekend action…

Running Through The Fire...

Every region is, now, up and running…

With life kicking in for Region 1-6A and the other smaller-sized groups, everyone is now involved in deciding their playoff seedings for the third season.

We’ll get to those highlights in a bit…

But, in other parts of the state, it looks like there are still some surprises out there…

Like the song above us says:

So, all hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
Spielbergs and Kubricks

Region 1-AAAAAA Stretch Run is Underway!

Most of the state of Georgia played Friday night’s prep football games in wet or totally rain-drenched conditions, and in the extreme southern portion of the state, three key games were played as region 1-AAAAAA kicked off their annual home stretch run for the four coveted playoff berths afforded those six teams. Two of the region’s openers were played in Valdosta where Camden County topped Valdosta, 31-10 at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium, and Colquitt County beat Lowndes, 42-20 at the Concrete Palace across town at Lowndes High school.

4 Thoughts 4 Game Day

The Norcross Blue Devils hold a 13-8 record over the North Gwinnett Bulldogs. Both coaches have had a lot of success at their respective programs. Head Coach Bob Sphire is in his tenth season at North Gwinnett and Keith Maloof is in his 17th season at Norcross. This matchup features a tale of two different seasons for each team.

The Bulldogs are currently 2-3, which is unfamiliar territory for them. Coach Sphire put it this way: “I’m not pleased with where we are at all. This falls on me.”

Must-See WR And DE Prospects Highlight Talent-Laden North Gwinnett At Norcross Rivalry Game On GPB

Twenty-two months ago the Norcross Blue Devils beat the North Gwinnett Bulldogs 31-14 to win the 2013 GHSA AAAAAA State Championship in the Georgia Dome.  Those two Region 7-AAAAAA rivals meet again for the 22nd time Friday night on GPB and while neither team is what they were on that December night close to two years ago…there’s nothing that says they won’t be again two months from now or sometime in the relatively near future.

Region 1 6A Returns

After a week off, the game is again afoot in south Georgia and in one of the toughest regions not just in Georgia, but in the entire country.  I am talking about Region 1, 6A.  And one of the biggest matchups will pit top ranked, undefeated, defending 6A champion, and 5-0 Colquitt County, against 4-1 and five time state champion Lowndes.  This game will be played on the Vikings home turf and you can believe that the fans that support the Crimson and White will be real

W2W4: What To Watch For- Week Seven

In 6A, It's the first week of Region 1 play- a lot of people feel this is one of the toughest regions in the country (not just the state of Georgia)... and north Georgia is off and running knocking each other around...

Jackie and Mark take a lok at some of the ranked games in the largest classification...


Teams are wrapping up their non-region schedules and getting ready for the second half of the season. We’re seeing some separation in parts of the state and some gathering of the forces in others…

A Shocking Week Six

The top-ranked Prep football team in last week’s Class A power rankings, Charlton County, 3-1, went down to defeat last Friday night, 44-0 to unbeaten Turner County, 5-0, in a game that sent shock waves through not only Region 2-A, but the state’s Class A public division as well. This traditionally tough Class A Region always produces some of the state’s best football teams and this season is no exception.
