Colquitt County vs. North Gwinnett: By the numbers

North Gwinnett linebacker Jayden McDonald, who is committed to Rutgers, has 13 tackles for losses and 11 sacks on the season.

Colquitt County and North Gwinnett will try again to settle the Class AAAAAAA football championship when they meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday at North Gwinnett’s Tom Robinson Memorial Stadium.

The teams originally were scheduled to play last Saturday at 8 p.m. in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but the game was one of six championships postponed because of the winter storm that dropped as much as a foot of snow in parts of the metro Atlanta area.

This will be the fourth time that the two have played each other. Colquitt County beat North Gwinnett 17-7 in the 2011 second round and 45-14 the 2015 regular-season Corky Kell Classic. North Gwinnett beat Colquitt 16-14 in the 2012 Corky Kell.
