The season is finally here. I will give you a few things to look for in Class A this Week:
The Indians have some momentum as they head to Kell High School to face King’s Academy. Last years game went down to the wire and I expect this one will too. KIng’s is well coached, tall , and athletic. Armuchee’s defense played great against Model and will need another outstanding performace this Friday.
Bowdon Red Devils
The preseason front runner in 6A public heads across county to face Temple from 5AA. Temple narrowly missed the playoffs last season and will be a good opening test for the Red Devils who may be a little banged up from a couple of tough preseason games. I will be there Friday and I am looking forward to seeing what both these teams bring in 2021.
Christian Heritage Lions
The game of the week in Class A for NWGA as the Lions host #3 Fellowship Christian. Christian Heritage gave Fellowship all they could handle last year for 3 quarters but they will need 4 full quarters if they want to pull the upset in front of the home crowd. Excellent off season the Lions and the expectations are high for them to repeat as 7A Private Champs.
Gordon Lee Trojans
The Trojans graduated a lot of Seniors off there 10-2 2020 team and people around NWGA weren’t sure what to expect from them heading into ’21. They showed in last weeks scrimmage, knocking off AAAA Heritage, that they still know how to win. They head over the Mtn. to face a Dade Co team that will be starting a new QB this season. Both teams had similar results against a strong Ringgold team in the preseason. Look for this one to be wild and high scoring.
Mt. Zion Eagles
The Eagles host Central Talbotton. Good game for the young Eagles to make a statement heading into 2021. Central is coming off an 0-7 season in which they only scored 28 points (14 in 1 game) and made a coaching change in the offseason. Mt. Zion has a lot of talented young guys and a win here would them a confidence boost headed into Week 2.
Off: Trion, Darlington
