2016 Season Already Memorable for Some, After Week One

Just one week into the Georgia high school football season and we’ve already seen things here in 2016 that we hadn’t seen in quite a while. We saw Colquitt County lose for the first time since the 2013 state semi-finals when the Packers had their 30-game win streak snapped in a loss vs Mill Creek.

More Friday Night Lights

Last Friday GPB Sports debuted a brand new show called, Football Fridays in Georgia: Inside Edition, and this week we will once again be in-studio, at tournament central, to bring you as many scores, games highlights, and high school football news as is humanly possible.

The goal, is to visit as many games around the state as we can, utilizing the local high school productions of their game broadcasts and then adding in interesting features and interviews to the show.

What's week one minus one?

So, Week Zero is over and done… and so are some win streaks…

Colquitt lost to Mill Creek (who became nationally-ranked in some Top 25 polls after the win) and the Packers 30-game win streak is now no more. And that wasn’t the only surprise of the week…

Week One Surprises

Many people term last week’s Prep Football action zero week, with which I don’t agree. Regular season prep games began last week, so to me that means week one is behind us and we are now heading surprisingly into week two of the 2016 schedule this weekend. As is typically the case, there were upsets, surprises and many close games played last weekend as prep football fans got to watch their favorite teams play for the first time in many months.


Football is finally here and we are looking forward to bringing you not one… not two… but multiple football games all at once! And we start tonight at 7:30 only on GPB.

This season, I’ve been profiling the quarterbacks across the state of Georgia. If you’re late to the party on that… Georgia is stacked with quarterbacks this year, and they’re not just the best in the state- some are the best in the country. One of them is Davis Mills, a senior out of Greater Atlanta Christian.


Does anyone else feel that? Football is IN the air and we can’t get enough of it, so we are ON the air tonight starting at 7:30 for Football Fridays in Georgia Inside Edition. We are going to be LIVE in studio for the first three weeks. We’re ready for fall, y’all! Even though, it’s still 90 degrees out.

2016 GHSA High School Football…More is Better!

Well here we go again! The start of season number three for me with Georgia Public Broadcasting and I’m excited. Boy how things have changed in the eight months since we wrapped-up the 2015 season with seven GHSA state champions at the Georgia Dome.

New Season, New Show!

High School Football is Back, and so is Football Fridays on GPB!

The long wait is finally over. Yes, I went to some spring practices. Sure I checked out some 7 on 7 action this summer. Of course I know that practice kicked off August 1st. But now I am talking about GAMES. That’s right, high school football games. And here at GPB Sports we are going to showcase Georgia high school football in a very unique way.
