So we’re off and running with the GHSA Football season. After calling seven of the nine games in the Corky Kell Classic last weekend, look forward to hanging at Marist this Friday night for the second edition of our GPB Football Fridays in Georgia Facebook Live Show.
Join me on Facebook Live Friday night and follow me on Twitter @MattStewartTV as we talk some high school football over the course of the night while watching the No. 7 (GPB 3A Poll) Lovett Lions take on the No.3-ranked Class 4A Marist War Eagles at Hughes-Spalding Stadium in Atlanta.
Here’s a little bit about that game. It’s the season opener for Marist after reaching the AAAA Championship Game last December before losing to rival Blessed Trinity 16-7 in the final. It was the War Eagles only loss of the season, finishing 14-1, stopped one win short of the program’s third state title. Marist is led by Coach Alan Chadwick who is starting his 34th season with an incredible record of 364-68.
The Lovett Lions are already 0-1 after opening with a 24-21 loss at Greater Atlanta Christian last Friday night. It’s the same place the Lions 7-5 season ended in 2017 with a 38-21 second-round playoff loss to the Spartans. Coach Mike Muschamp is in his 14th season having led Lovett to one of the program’s two state titles since he arrived in 2005.
