Week 1 review: Top 10 teams jockey for early position

11:41 pm Aug. 19, 2017

Observations from Week One in the high class. Still no clear sense of where things are headed.

-Grayson, the defending champion, opens Saturday against Alabama’s best, Hoover. Grayson lost most of its starters but returns one of the most talented junior classes maybe ever.

-No. 2 Colquitt County blew a 13-0 halftime lead Saturday but won on a long drive and held No. 9 Norcross to minus-12 yards rushing in

Mill Creek 23, McEachern 19

11:30 pm Aug. 19, 2017

Mill Creek’s offense was overshadowed early by McEachern, but the Hawks scored on their first three possessions of the second half to rally for a 23-19 victory Saturday in the teams’ season opener in the the Corky Kell Classic at Georgia State Stadium.

Quarterback Brady Longenecker, making his first start, threw two touchdown passes in the second half and Matt Campbell kicked a 39-yard field goal for Mill Creek, which was

Colquitt County 20, Norcross 17

7:35 pm Aug. 19, 2017

Norcross had moved inside the range of the powerful boot of highly-touted kicker Jake Camarda in the waning seconds of its matchup against Colquitt County Saturday in the Corky Kell Classic at Georgia State Stadium.

Out of timeouts, a last ditch effort to get out of bounds and stop the clock on the play before failed, despite the protests of Blue Devils coach Keith Maloof, and Norcross rushed to get set

Archer 25, Brookwood 17

4:01 pm Aug. 19, 2017

After three consecutive 11-win seasons, including an appearance in the 2014 finals, Archer took a big step back last season, finishing 4-7.

The Tigers took a big step toward leaving last season far behind with a 25-17 win over Class AAAAAAA No. 6 Brookwood, in Game 2 of five, Saturday at the Corky Kell Classic at Georgia State Stadium.

Archer led 12-0 in the second quarter and 25-7 late in the third.

Tucker 28, Kell 27 (OT)

1:00 pm Aug. 19, 2017

After scoring a touchdown against Tucker that brought them to within a point in overtime, the Kell Longhorns may have overthought how to address the point after. They lined up, called time out — Tucker

Warner Robins 28, Northside-Warner Robins 17

12:16 am Aug. 19, 2017

Warner Robins – Northside-Warner Robins and Warner Robins were breaking in new quarterbacks when they revived their bitter rivalry.
The one with a familiar last name didn’t have a headliner night, but he had a winning night.
Dylan Fromm passed for four touchdowns and Warner Robins’ defense had a solid second half as the Demons knocked off Northside 28-17 Friday in the sloppy season opener for both teams at McConnell-Talbert Stadium.
The regular
