    Peachtree Ridge will surprise teams this year. Their quarterback Fred Payton is a stud and is being overlooked by all the recruiting agencies.

    1. I like Payton’s game and I’m excited to see some players step up with the absence of a few transfers. Wilson Catoe is actually getting a shot at linebacker finally. Heyward can finally focus 100% on WR and I guess punting haha

    Suprised to not see Prince Ave. not in A-Private top 10

    1. It was a tough call but with Darlington and Wesleyan slipping down a classification a few consistent names from last fall had to be dropped out of the top 10. I feel pretty good about all my ratings and did a lot of research so we shall see. No doubt Prince Avenue & Stratford Academy are right outside the top 10

    Jones County is a easy Number 1.

    Valdosta is way more talented than advertised and will handle any team ranked above them. Do more research on a team . You forgot the depth in Qb and defense is nasty, offense will be to soon as they gel. Go Cats!

    1. Valosta is extremely talented and most of their team follows on Twitter. Zakoby McClain, Jontae Baker, Jared Allen, James Bushware, Jayce Rogers, Antwon Kincade just to throw some names off the top of my head. We got Kincade his offer from Minnesota. Also one of your assistance coaches has been a longtime contact. I’m expecting Valdosta to move up in my ratings but right now your QB is unproven and you lost your HC to Georgia Southern and replace him with Rodemaker your DC. So I think I did plenty of research but it’s okay to have a different opinion then me.

    No Manchester in Single A Public, they beat Spencer in a scrimmage

    1. What was the score? I don’t take a ton of stock in scrimmages when it’s basically JV teams playing in the 2nd half.

    We will win and move into the polls. We are currently not in this one but that will change about week 4. Way more talent. I can’t believe everyone is passing on us. Like we no longer have a program. Well, time will tell.

    AA Brooks Co should be in the top 10.

    1. Could be true but a few Class AAA teams from last year dropped down and I’m thinking they might be a little better. Not to take away from Brooks, who was in our Top 10 most of last season.

    Trion is rated in top ten as they should be but it won’t be easy because Bowden and Darlington are back in their 6a region plus old time rival Gordon lee

    No Mt Zion in public top 10? Returning 16 starters and beat 2 of the top last yr.

    Gotta earn it.

    1. If it makes y’all feel better they are probably #11

  10. Reply Post By Anonymous

    Wow, No Mt Zion in top 10. Hope everybody overlooks them. Single A going to be tough, returning 16 starters. Replacements played heavy minutes 2015. Speed, speed and more speed.

    Peach co. Ranked #6 and they should have beaten your #1 team in 6a. Peach is really good and will only get better and will beat Houston co. In two weeks

  12. Ware co will be on top this year

    1. I always got the impression that Dedrick Mills was integral part of that team last year. They were in our top 10 all last year too BTW

  13. Reply Post By Shawn allen

    Everyone doubted Colquitt County last year and look what happened! Y’all continue to doubt us and we will continue to roll! We are #1

      Colquitt is very good again but cannot deny the star power Grayson has.

      1. Reply Post By Shawn allen

        Yeah people couldn’t deny the Mill Creek defense and then the Roswell defense but we showed them! We were preseasoned ranked 2nd or 3rd last year as well.

  14. Yeah dedrick played a big roll for ware co. Ware co has a lot of last years starters back so the team shouldn’t disappoint this year.
