Jon's Georgia: Week Eleven
It’s hard to believe, but it is THE FINAL WEEK OF THE REGULAR SEASON. Weren’t we just talking about everything going on in the off-season and getting ready for the season to start? Weren’t we talking about reclassification, teams moving up, moving down, moving in to the GHSA, and making geographic changes and regional sideways movements?
Yeah…but that was 11 weeks ago.
After this Friday, a little more than half of the 400-plus teams in the GHSA that play football will be done for another year and 192 will be moving on to determine the seven champs for 2014. But there’s still a lot to be decided in Week 11 for all of us after Week 10 went by so quickly. In South Georgia, Colquitt is ranked top-five in the country for a reason… John Reid has done wonders for the Tift program.
