Maxwell ranks Colquitt No. 1 in South

Colquitt County has established its superiority over Georgia by winning the Class AAAAAA championship this past weekend, but how would the Packers do against other teams across the South?

 

Our resident computer ratings expert, Loren Maxwell, has an answer of his own and the computer validated what many AJC readers already knew - that Georgia plays some of the best high school football in perhaps the strongest high school football region in the nation.

 

Using data from MaxPreps, Maxwell crunched the numbers for all 2,425 state association teams in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee. It turns out that not only does Georgia boast the best team in the South, but it also has the best two, Colquitt County and Buford. In fact, Georgia claims nearly a third of the top 150 slots, more than any other state.

 

Key games among the top teams that made a significant difference in the ratings were Colquitt County's 35-14 defeat of Hoover, Alabama's champion from its highest classification, and Buford's 17-0 downing of Trinity Christian Academy, the 3A champion from Florida that finished #16 in the ratings.

 

Maxwell's top 10 Southern U.S. teams are below. For comparison, the Freeman computer ratings, sponsored by MaxPreps, currently has Colquitt County as the third-best team among the seven states while Buford is ranked 12th.

Corky Kell Classic

returning to Dome

The Corky Kell Classic will return to the Georgia Dome in 2015 with the same teams as this past season, but different matchups.

 

Colquitt County will begin defense of its Class AAAAAA title against North Gwinnett in a 5:45 p.m. Saturday game. Tucker will play McEachern in a rematch of a AAAAAA quarterfinal that McEachern won. Six of the teams made the quarterfinals this season. Three made the semifinals. Two made the finals. One was champion.

 

The annual kickoff event was pushed out of the Dome in 2014 because of a rare conflict with the Atlanta Falcons' preseason schedule. The 2015 event will begin with a doubleheader on Friday at McEachern.

 

Here is the complete schedule:

 

Friday, Aug. 21

(At McEachern)

5:45 p.m. - Sandy Creek vs. Creekview

8:45 p.m. - Archer vs. North Paulding

Saturday, Aug. 22

(At Georgia Dome)

9 a.m. - Carrollton vs. Kell

11:45 a.m. - Brookwood vs. Mill Creek

2:45 p.m. - Norcross vs. Valdosta

5:45 p.m. - North Gwinnett vs. Colquitt County

8:45 p.m. - McEachern vs. Tucker
