Quarterfinal Preview
Class AA
Fitzgerald at Benedictine
When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, T.A. Wright Stadium/Savannah State, Savannah
Records, rankings: Fitzgerald is 11-1, the No. 2 seed from Region 1-AA and No. 5; Benedictine is 12-0, the No. 1 seed from 2-AA and No. 1.
Last meeting: Benedictine won 51-7 in the second round of the 2013 Class AA playoffs.
Three things to know: 1. Benedictine's victory over Fitzgerald in 2013 was a turning point in how the Cadets were viewed statewide. Benedictine was 11-0 but ranked only No. 6. Fitzgerald was 6-4-1 but had a streak of nine 10-win seasons. Benedictine would go on to reach the semifinals for the first time since 1978, then win its first state title the next year. 2. Benedictine beat Lovett 41-40 last week in a game of nine lead changes. John Kennedy rushed for 106 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown on a 40-yard run with 3:23 left.

Winner plays: Fitzgerald/Benedictine winner
Brooks County at GAC
When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Spartan Stadium, Norcross
Records, rankings: Brooks County is 10-2, the No. 1 seed from Region 1-AA and No. 6; Greater Atlanta Christian is 11-1, the No. 1 seed from 6-AA and No. 2.
Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.
Three things to know: 1. GAC and Brooks County are the champions of Class AA's most dominant regions. Region 1-AA has sent 20 teams to the quarterfinals in the past 10 seasons, while 6-AA has sent 21. The 41 total is more than the other six regions combined. Brooks has made six quarterfinals in that time; GAC has made five. 2. Brooks County sophomore RB Jonathan White rushed for 118 yards (his second 100-yard rushing game of the playoffs) in a 41-26 victory over Manchester in the second round. His fourth touchdown, a 10-yard run with 1:37 left, provided the final margin. QB Demontay Jones was 16-of-21 for 232 yards. The Region 1-AA player of the year, Jones has thrown for 2,122 yards and rushed for more than 600 this season. 3. GAC has rushed for 2,308 yards and passed for 2,455 on the season, but the ratio is closer to two-to-one passing in two playoff games, when QB Davis Mills has been 28-of-41 for 494 yards and five touchdowns. Liam Sullivan and Malcolm Cunningham have 100-yard receiving games in the playoffs.

Winner plays: Pace Academy/Macon County winner
Pace Academy at Macon County
When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Adams-Maffett Field, Montezuma
Records, rankings: Pace Academy is 10-2, the No. 4 seed from Region 6-AA and No. 9; Macon County is 10-2, the No. 1 seed from 4-AA and unranked.
Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.
Three things to know: 1. Macon County is in the quarterfinals for the first time since 2005. That's a mild surprise considering that 2014 AA defensive player of the year Roquan Smith graduated and coach Larry Harold, who turned the program around, took the Brunswick job. Pace Academy is in the quarterfinals for the second consecutive season, although it hadn't won a playoff game until last year. 2. Macon County nearly has a 3,000-yard passer (K'hari Lane has thrown for 2,957 yards), 1,000-year rusher (Jared Daniels has 1,357 with 21 touchdowns) and 1,000-yard receiver (sophomore Trey Brown has 1,018 yards, 11 touchdowns). All are underclassmen. Brown and fellow sophomore WR Tra Brown each had more than 100 yards receiving in a 41-7 victory over Bowdon last week. 3. Pace QB Gunnor Faulk, known for his accuracy, was 9-of-11 passing for 148 yards in a 27-7 victory over Screven County last week. But Pace averages 194.5 yards rushing, only 100.6 passing. OLB Philip Markwalter had 13 tackles against Screven, two for losses, giving him 19 behind the line on the season. PK Samuel Sloman has made 18 of 20 field-goal attempts.

Records, rankings: Commerce is 8-3, the No. 9 seed and unranked; Marion County is 10-1, the No. 1 seed and No. 3.
Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.
Three things to know: 1. Marion County RB/WR/DB Lorenzo Smothers, a 1,000-yard rusher with 80 career touchdowns, is out with a rib injury. He also was the team's leading receiver and third-leading tackler. Marion will rely on another 1,000-yard rusher, Mykelle Kelley (143 yards in a 22-20 victory over Twiggs County last week) and sophomore QB Quentez Battle (47-of-85 passing for 636 yards, 11 touchdowns). 2. Commerce RB Cole Chancey rushed for 133 yards in a 31-29 first-round victory over Charlton County. Chancey has 960 yards rushing on the season, and Will Thomas has 939. Commerce averages 301.9 yards rushing per game. The Tigers have attempted only 59 passes all season but were 7-of-10 for 130 yards against Charlton. 3. Commerce and Marion County were the losing semifinalists in 2014. Marion won its first state title in 2013. Commerce is a two-time state champion (1981, 2000) that has re-emerged as a state power the past two seasons under Commerce alumnus Michael Brown.

Last meeting: Clinch County won 53-6 in 2003.
Three things to know: 1. Both teams last played in the quarterfinals in 2013 and lost. Clinch last won a quarterfinal in 2010, the season of its most recent Class A championship. Johnson County last won in 2005. Though both schools have been in Class A since 1982, they've never met each other in the playoffs. 2. Johnson County beat Region 1 champion Randolph-Clay 21-8 in a first-round defensive battle that was 8-8 at halftime. Johnson County held Randolph-Clay to 165 yards in total offense and won the turnover battle 3-0. Ronquez Harden had 72 yards rushing and 43 receiving with a touchdown. QB Brooks Norton is 85-of-149 passing for 1,116 yards and 11 touchdowns, six of them to Harden. Norton is the son of head coach Don Norton and grandson of former Washington-Wilkes coach Butch Brooks. 3. Clinch County RB Shannon Young has rushed for 1,365 yards on a team that passes fewer than six times per game. All of Clinch's 367 total yards in a 30-8 victory over Dooly County last week came on the ground. Clinch has four backs, including Young, with more than 400 yards on the season. Junior WB Zebulon Johnson averages 17.7 yards per carry (32 carries, 566 yards, nine TDs). Clinch has scored a school-record 10 defensive touchdowns, though none in the past two games.

Last meeting: Irwin County won 49-26 in the first round of the 2013 Class A public-school playoffs.
Three things to know: 1. Trion, looking to make its first semifinal since 2003, gained momentum as a contender with its 40-6 rout of 10th-ranked Turner County in the first round. Trion's losses are to No. 8 Pinecrest Academy 27-24 in overtime, No. 9 Mount Paran Christian 7-6 and fellow private-school quarterfinalist Mount Zion 30-20. Irwin County was the private-school runner-up last season. Both schools won their only state titles in the mid-1970s. 2. Trion's best all-around player is four-year starting FB/LB Malik Martin. He is the leading rusher with 768 yards and has 74 tackles and four sacks on defense. DB/LB DeVonya Farmer (401 yards rushing, four sacks) and FB/DE Logan Blevins (307 rushing, nine tackles for losses) also are prominent two-way players.

Landmark RB Lofton Tidwell rushed for 99 yards and scored both of his team's touchdowns but missed most of the second half with an injury. Jordan Grant's 12-yard touchdown pass to Ben Haeussler in the final minutes put the game out of reach. 3.

Four Questions Presented By GPB Sports
2GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.
Ben Simmons, Turner County
1. What is the most memorable game you've been a part of as a player or coach? "My most memorable game as a coach was in 1997. I was the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator for Raines High School in Jacksonville, Fla. On Dec. 20, 1997, we won the Class 4A state championship, defeating Belle Glades 33-27."
2. Which high school coach would you want your son to play for, and why? "My high school coach, Freddie Stephens [at Raines]."
3. What is your favorite saying/motto? "Believe It!"
4. Which GHSA policy or high school football rule would you most like to see changed? "I would like to see an alteration of the heat policy. I would like to see the rule for heat index and practice regulations be consistent for everyone.  The GHSA needs to monitor the hottest temperature in the state of Georgia each day. Once the hottest temperature has been determined, have all schools in the state follow the guidelines established for that day's practice."
