List

B.E.S.T. is best

Business, Engineering, Science and Technology (B.E.S.T.) Academy broke into the Top 10 this week at No. 8 in Class AA after a 14-7 victory over Callaway. B.E.S.T., an all-male school, is the only Atlanta Public Schools team in the current Top 10, although Mays was ranked No. 10 in the preseason in AAAAA. It's rare for an Atlanta school to finish in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Top 10. Here is the last time that each current APS school made it.

 

*Carver - 1968 (No. 9)

Douglass - 2004 (No. 8)

Grady - 2010 (No. 6)

Jackson - Never

Mays - Never

North Atlanta - 1968 (No. 10)

South Atlanta - Never

Therrell - Never

Washington - 2004 (No. 7)

 

*Carver finished No. 8 in the 2007 AP poll.

Trivia

Woodward Academy's Elijah Holyfield on Friday became one of about 20 players in GHSA history to score seven touchdowns in a game. The documented GHSA record is held by Kenneth Moore of Calhoun, who scored 10 touchdowns against Acworth in 1948. Which former Georgia high school player and icon was written up in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" for scoring 10 touchdowns in a game for Fitzgerald twice in a season? (Answer Wednesday)

 

Answer to Monday's question: Lincoln County has beaten Warren County 39 consecutive times. Brookwood has beaten Berkmar 23 straight times. Griffin has beaten Jonesboro 21 straight times. Those are the longest streaks of one school beating another among rivals that are scheduled to play each other this seas

 

Four Questions Presented By Verizon  

12

GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.

 

Von Lassiter, Houston County

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? "Conrad Nix at Northside [Warner Robins]. He taught me the ins and outs of running a football program. He taught me how to coach kids extremely hard, hold them accountable and show them how to be a man of God."

 

2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced? "Greg Reid, Lowndes, 2008. He was a dynamic player on both sides of the ball and on special teams."

 

3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach? "Camden County, 2008. Very disciplined and physical with lots of team speed."

 

4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change?"Mandatory 25-second clock in stadiums."
