Why Haven't We Been To Your Town?

For the record, we love ALL Georgia High School Football and we know there are great teams and dedicated fans all over the state. We also know that many of the best games happen outside the Atlanta area.  But as much as we would love to showcase match-ups in other parts of Georgia, it boils down to dollars.

We have an elaborate technical set-up and a large production crew for our Football Friday shows.  If we move everything and everyone more than an hour beyond the Atlanta area, our costs skyrocket.

Roswell In Mix For State Title

And don’t just take my word on that.  No less than Colquitt County Coach Rush Propst believes as many as 12 teams are legitimate contenders for the GHSA AAAAAA State Championship this season and the Roswell Hornets are among that dozen.

Thoughts After Week One

The GHSA football season is off and running.  Lots of great games, and lots of great individual efforts.

So What Do You Call It?

Matt Stewart and I get into an argument about what last week really was:

So, I will put it to you Dear Reader: What Was Last Week…??? Week Zero or Week One…

Be sure to log on to our Facebook page (GPB Sports) or reach out to any of us on the Twitters (I’m @OSGNelson, for the record…) to let us know what you think… or you can comment at the bottom of the page- and keep it clean, please… answers could be in next week’s Mailbag.

GHSA Changes Are Coming

The GHSA has adopted a reclassification plan, that adds playoff spots in the smallest division, and adds a new classification at the very top. The new top class in Georgia High School Sports will be called the Big 44 which will take in roughly the largest ten percent of the schools in the state. The Class AA through AAAAAA will have about sixty schools apeice and the Class A with the public and private schools will remain the same.

Let's Light Up The Scoreboard

I can’t remember when I have seen so many points scored in games that were billed as opening season powerhouse matchups, but turned into routs. The acknowledged Class 6-A powers made statements over the weekend and the remaining teams on their schedules would be advised to put in a lot of defensive work over the next few weeks if you are to play with these teams: Colquitt County, a 45-14 winner over North Gwinnett, Archer, a 49-21 winner over North Paulding, and McEachern who topped Tucker 50-14.

Five Things To Know On Game Day

In honor of starting our fifth season, here are five things to look for in this week’s matchup:

One Of Nation's Top Linebackers On Display When Roswell Hosts Lowndes On GPB

I am so looking forward to kicking off our 2015 season on GPB this Friday night when the Roswell Hornets host the Lowndes Vikings.  This will be just the third ever meeting between these two teams from different worlds in Georgia high school football.

Getting Ready For Some Football

The 2015 High School Football season is finally here!!!.  After checking out several teams during spring practice,  going to some 7 on 7 tournaments during the summer, and then visiting training camps as teams prepared for the new year of gridiron play, then some scrimmage games,  the time is now here  for toe to meet leather and time for teams to hit the field in games that count.

Now, It Counts!

You see what’s going on above fold this week…

Let’s just say the “Southern Swing” was interesting…

The podcast is a visit to ESPN Coastal Georgia in Brunswick and the video is our interview with BJ Bennett in full.

In 62 hours, videographer Gary Peacock and myself visited 17 different locations- 16 of them were high schools.

We visited towns like Roberta, Ft. Valley, Rochelle, Homerville, and Kingsland.
