This Week: The Red Devils continue their tour of 5AA facing their 3rd opponent from the Region in as many weeks. Haralson County is smarting after being upset by Manchester on the road and will make a tall task for Bowdon.

   The Indians beat Towns Co. 31-14 on Friday.

  Bulldog Junior QB Logan Eller helped lead Trion to a big opening win at home, 48-13 over Coosa. Senior RB Rob Brown had over 100 yds and 4 TDs in the win.

Gordon Lee (1-1):

  A year after putting up crazy offensive numbers the Trojans seem to be a defensive minded team in 2021. They shut out AAA LFO 21-0 on Friday Junior Conner Whitman led the Trojans with 8 TT and added a TD on offense. This Week: Special edition Thursday night game as the Trojans battle their 2nd 6AAA team in a row when they make the trip to LaFayette.
