Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving everyone!


Quarter-Final Round Equals Dreams Continued and Hearts Broken

I have long-argued that the quarter-final round of the GHSA state playoffs is the best weekend of high school football in the state of Georgia.  Now it’s hard to say it trumps the seven state championship games in the Georgia Dome but quite often because of the way the brackets are set in this state, quarter-final match-ups might end-up being more competitive than some of the finals.

Quarterfinal Time

First of all I want to wish all of you a terrific Thanksgiving on Thursday.  And then as a holiday present to yourself, you can sit back and enjoy this week’s GHSA quarterfinal matchup of Archer and Mill Creek on GPB’s Football Fridays in Georgia.

Little New Orleans: Roswell's Best Kept Secret


Calling all Cajun lovers!!

I cannot wait to tell y’all about a place I tried out last week when I was in Roswell leading up to the game against Camden County. It’s called “Adele’s on Canton.” And it’s the most authentic New Orleans cuisine you’ll find this far east of the Bayou! Seriously… everything is made fresh daily (wait until you see the part about the Oysters!) and shipped weekly from New Orleans. Owners Mark and Ruth Wegman have created a beautiful atmosphere. 

The Elite Eight

There is a phrase among coaches and media persons that says it all, “If you are playing a football game on Thanksgiving week…you’ve had a good season.” If that statement is indeed fact, 56 teams have already enjoyed a great Georgia Prep Football season.

However, there is still some serious business to be taken care of if the ultimate prize of a state football championship trophy is in the future for seven of those teams.

Jackie’s Notebook: Camden County @ Roswell

I, for one, am extremely excited about this matchup! There is SO much talent on both teams that it’s like watching a Division 1 college game- except on a Friday.

So if a Hornet and a Wildcat were in a battle… who would win?

If only it was that simple…

Here is your study guide for Friday’s matchup between another South Georgia powerhouse and one of North Georgia’s most impressive undefeated teams.

State Championship Contenders Please Stand Up!

Three months ago after we televised Roswell’s 35-8 season-opening win over Lowndes on GPB I wrote in this blog that the Hornets were state championship contenders.  Well here we are three weeks from the Georgia Dome and indeed Roswell is a state championship contender.  Friday night the Hornets face their most difficult challenge yet when Roswell hosts the Camden County Wildcats starting at 7:00 p.m. on GPB.
