In The News
Grayson's Herron supports GHSA ban of IMG
It's no secret that some Georgia football teams aren't happy that Grayson is playing IMG Academy on Saturday in an ESPN-televised game between nationally ranked teams.
 
What might be surprising is that Grayson head coach Jeff Herron supports the GHSA's decision last week to ban Georgia teams from playing IMG and others like it beginning in 2017. IMG is not a full-fledged member of the Florida High School Athletic Association and can recruit players, using scholarships if needed.
 
"I honestly think it's a pretty good move," Herron said of the GHSA's decision. "The IMG situation has the potential to hurt high school football. What's to stop somebody from metro Atlanta from building a facility and doing the same thing? I'm not in favor of it. I'm old school. I don't like the way that's going. I think it was the right rule."
 
IMG is a boarding school in Bradenton, Fla., that became famous beginning as a tennis academy for pros from Andre Agassi to Serena Williams. IMG started a high school football program in 2012 and last season secured six of the top 100 senior recruits in the country. (TheNew York Times profiled the program in September of 2015.)
 
This offseason, five Georgia players have enrolled at IMG. Two in particular are very highly regarded - Norcross DE Robert Beal (committed to Georgia) and Archer DB Isaiah Pryor (committed to Ohio State). Norcross was prominent in lobbying to the GHSA for the ban.
 
Said Herron, "If I'd lost a kid or two to IMG, I wouldn't be happy that we're playing them either."
 
That said, Herron looks forward to the game, which pits MaxPreps' No. 2 team nationally (Grayson) against the No. 4 team (IMG). The game, which was scheduled before Herron was hired in March, is at Grayson.
 
"I don't have any animosity toward IMG and what they're doing or their coaches," Herron said. "We'll play them. They're still high school kids, and they have men coaching just like us. I just don't agree with their concept. That doesn't mean they're bad people."
 
GHSF Daily's Todd Holcomb is writing a preview of the Grayson-IMG game for Friday's print edition of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. In it, Herron discusses criticism of his own program, which has benefited from several high-profile transfers this season. Partly as a result, the GHSA has formed an ad-hoc committee to review future eligibility of transfers, and some Gwinnett County schools has chosen not to play Grayson in JV and ninth-grade games.
Funeral on Saturday for Peach County player
The funeral service for Peach County football player Raekwon Smith, the driver in an automobile accident last weekend, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday in the high school gym following a viewing at 9 a.m., theMacon Telegraph reported. The fatal accident occurred as Smith was driving home with three passengers from a pool party attended by  layers and coaches, including head coach Chad Campbell. "Lord knows we just had a great time ... not knowing what the next hours would hold," Campbell told a large gathering of fans who came out Monday night at Peach County's Anderson Stadium to honor Smith and support his family and teammates, as reported by The Telegraph. Campbell also told the gathering that teammate Randolph Williams, a passenger in the car, remains in intensive care and has a 50 percent chance of paralysis. The vehicle overturned several times. Smith, a senior, was 18. Peach County's first game is Friday night at home against Houston County.
 
Simpson: Buford can still be 'special'
Buford has lost consecutive games for the first time since 1998. Those would be the 10-0 defeat in the Class AAAA championship last year and the season-opening 24-7 loss to Roswell last week. Stan Awtrey, the Class AAAAA blogger for ajc.com, explained well this week why no one should write off Buford, pointing out that the Wolves lost 37-14 last year to McEachern but played for the title. The Georgia Sports Writers Association poll dropped the Wolves to No. 4, but all other polls kept Buford in the top spot. Awtrey quoted Buford's Jess Simpson: "There's going to be bunch of film watched," Simpson said. "I believe that by the end of the year this could be a special football team. I really do. We've got some great senior leadership. We've got some young guys who are great followers. This (loss) will eat them up and they're going to want to get better." Buford has an off week before facing teams from New York (Bishop Timon), Alabama (Jeff Davis) and Florida (International School).
 
Region 1 dominates in AAAAAA
Five of the top six teams in Class AAAAAA are from Region 1. They are No. 1 Houston County, No. 2 Northside (Warner Robins), No. 3 Valdosta, No. 5 Lee County and No. 6 Coffee. The five went 5-0 in the opening week. There has never been a region that dominant in the rankings. Of course, only four teams per region quality for the playoffs, so one will be left out. Meanwhile, Region 7 in the same classification had a tougher time - 0-6. Region 7 teams that started 0-1 were Alpharetta (lost to Milton 14-12), Chattahoochee (Pickens, 49-19), Dunwoody (Lakeside-DeKalb, 36-22), Johns Creek (Lassiter 27-13), North Atlanta (Grady 53-0), and Northview (Lanier 34-13). Cambridge, Centennial and Pope open their seasons this week. Those were the only regions to go unbeaten or winless with at least half of their teams in action.
 
North Cobb Christian gets unexpected new coach
Mark Hollars will be the head coach of North Cobb Christian for its Friday opener at home against Strong Rock Christian. The Eagles' first-year coach, Jake Sorg, resigned unexpectedly last week, stating family reasons. Hollars was hired only last month as an offensive line coach, according to the Marietta Daily Journal, but has been a head coach for 15 years in Ohio, most recently at St. Marys Memorial. It is not the first time that North Cobb Christian has hired a coach, only to see him leave before the first game. In 2013, former Landmark Christian coach Kenny Dallas accepted the position, but changed his mind days later. NCC hired Scott Ryle instead, and he accomplished the program's first winning season (6-4) in 2015. Ryle resigned and took a job at Brook Hill in Illinois.
 
99-yard TD reception gets MaxPreps' attention
99-yard TD pass from Newton QB Myron Middlebrooks to WR Tyrese Peacock made the CBS MaxPreps Video: Top 10 Plays of the Week. Peacock had three receptions for 110 yards and three touchdowns in Newton's 25-13 victory over Drew. Newton's more celebrated receiver, four-star recruit Jeremiah Holloman, had four catches for 71 yards.

Four Questions
1
GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.
 
Mike McDonald, Newnan
1. What is the most memorable game you've been a part of as a player or coach? "As a player, it would have to be the 1987 state AAAA championship game vs. Effingham County played at Tara Stadium. [McDonald was a defensive back for Morrow.] Great atmosphere and a great night for Clayton County football! [Morrow won 21-0.] There have been a lot of memorable games as a coach, but a couple really stand out. One was 1995 Forest Park vs. Valdosta quarterfinal game also played at Tara Stadium. We won [22-21] on a field goal that night, and it was only the second field goal we had made all year. The 2009 Newnan vs. Grayson quarterfinal game. We won a really tough, physical game that night 9-7. Alec Ogletree made a great one-handed catch in the end zone and also blocked a last-second field goal to help seal the win." [Morrow's 1987 state-championship team was the first from metro Atlanta to win the highest class in 15 years. It remains Clayton County's most recent state title.]
 
2. Which high school coach would you want your son to play for, and why? "There are too many good coaches that I have worked with or coached against to name just one. Two coaches had a huge impact on my life. Danny Langford at Morrow Junior High was a tough, in-your-face kind of guy. A lot of that old stuff about sucking it up and trying hard that we learned from Coach Langford sure has stuck with me throughout my life. We all loved to play for Coach Langford. Mike Creasman was my secondary coach at Morrow High School. He later went on to be the head coach at Stockbridge, Berrien and Dutchtown High School. After retiring from public education some years ago to get more involved with his church, I have heard that he will be back on the sidelines this fall at Strong Rock Christian n Locust Grove. Coach Creasman was a great man that I learned way more from than just how to play defensive back! Coach Creasman had a huge impact on my life and really gave all who played for him a great role model to look up to!"
 
3. What is your favorite saying/motto? "Winning is not a sometime thing: It's an all-the-time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. - Vince Lombardi."
 
4. Which GHSA policy or high school football rule would you most like to see changed? "With the GHSA allowing spring games to once again take place, I wish they would allow two-three more practice days during spring practice. Spring practice should be about fundamentals and teaching! How much of that are we going to lose because now you will have to game-plan for an opponent. I think coaches are really going to have to be careful about who they scrimmage with. Is a spread team going to want to play a Wing-T team? If you really look at it, you will only have eight practices to try and get ready for a game. How much fundamental time and teaching time will be lost because you're worried about trying to stop the G-Belly or the bucksweep so you don't get embarrassed in a scrimmage. I think an additional three practices would really be beneficial!"
 
The Georgia High School Scoreboard Show, presented by Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance, is in its 20th season in 2016 and is produced by Palmer Sports Media in partnership with the GHSA. The popular Friday night program has become a staple for high school football fans all across Georgia from 10 p.m. until midnight. The statewide radio network can be heard on more than 50 affiliate stations and online for 12 weeks from Aug. 26 to Nov. 11. Hosting the show for an 11th season is the legendary voice of Tommy Palmer. Click here for a list of affiliates.
High School Football Gives Back!
2MaxPreps recently launched Touchdowns Against Cancer, a national campaign that unites high school football teams across the country to fight childhood cancer. In partnership with PLEDGE IT and St. Jude Children's Hospital, football fans join the fight by pledging money for every touchdown their team scores between September 15th and October 1st. High school football coaches can get started by logging into their team account on MaxPreps. Click here for more information.
