In The News
Venues changed for two semifinal games
Two semifinal games were moved to other venues Tuesday because of stadiums that did not meet the GHSA's minimum permanent-seating requirements.
 
The Westlake-Roswell game, originally slated for Westlake Stadium in south Fulton County, will be played at the neutral Lakewood Stadium south of downtown Atlanta because neither Fulton County school can meet the required 6,000 seats for a Class AAAAAAA semifinal.
 
Lakewood Stadium, which seats about 10,000, is a home field for Atlanta Public Schools. It is about 30 miles from Roswell and 15 from Westlake.
 
The Jefferson-Thomson game, originally set for Jefferson, will go to Thomson's Brickyard, which seats about 4,400. The requirement in AAAA is 4,000.
 
The requirements have been in place for this playoff round since the semifinals moved out of the Georgia Dome and back to high school fields in 2008. They existed for other rounds prior to that.
 
In both cases, the original home team was decided by a coin flip, as all four teams are seeded No. 1 from their regions. Home teams are 26-15 in the semifinals since 2008 when two No. 1 seeds meet.
 
Both games will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Semifinal Previews
3Class AAAAA
Stockbridge at Rome
When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Barron Stadium, Rome
Records, rankings: Stockbridge is 13-0, the No. 1 seed from Region 5-AAAAA and No. 2; Rome is 11-2, the No. 1 seed from 7-AAAAA and No. 4.
Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.
Things to know: The winner will be in a state championship game for the first time. Rome lost in the semifinals in 2008 to Marist. Stockbridge lost in the semis in 2014 to Mays. Rome has two 1,000-yard rushers - Jamious Griffin (1,264) and Jalynn Sykes (1,092) - although Sykes missed the first two playoff rounds with an injury. Sophomore QB Knox Kadum has thrown for 1,626 yards and 15 touchdowns.  Stockbridge is a run-based team. Jalen Holston has rushed for 1,378 yards, but QB Kendrick Duncan, fully healthy for the first time in a month, rushed for 105 in a 41-34 victory over Griffin last week. The game will be a showcase for two blue-chip junior defensive ends. Rome's Adam Anderson (6-5, 230) has 29 tackles for losses and six sacks. Stockbridge's Brenton Cox (6-4, 235) has 16 sacks and another 6.5 tackles for losses.
Maxwell Ratings' projection: Rome by 3
 
Kell at Buford
When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Tom Riden Stadium, Buford
Records, rankings: Kell is 11-2, the No. 3 seed from Region 7-AAAAA and No. 5; Buford is 12-1, the No. 1 seed from 8-AAAAA and No. 1.
Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.
Things to know: Kell is the only No. 3 (or lower) seed remaining in the playoffs, although the Longhorns tied for first place in Region 7 and defeated region champion and fellow semifinalist Rome 33-30. Kell's most outstanding player is LB Solon Page, a Tennessee commit with 111 solo tackles, 22 for losses. John Lampley has thrown for 1,906 yards and 16 touchdowns. Josiah Futral has rushed for 1,105 yards. DL Ismail Dabdoub, listed at only 5 feet 7 inches, has 10 sacks.  Buford could have the best pair of junior running backs in the state. Anthony Grant has more than 1,400 yards rushing, and Chris Turner has 943 - including a career-high 276 last week in a 34-27 win over Carrollton. They run behind a line with three college-bound seniors - Connor Mills (East Carolina), Dean Powell (Army) and Tyler Thurmond (West Virginia). OL/DL Powell and RB/LB Grant are prominent on defense, as well.

Class AAAA
Mary Persons at Cartersville
When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Weinman Stadium, Cartersville
Records, rankings: Mary Persons is 11-2, the No. 1 seed from Region 2-AAAA and No. 7; Cartersville is 13-0, the No. 1 seed from 5-AAAA and No. 1.

Things to know: Mary Persons is in the semifinals for the first time since 1998 and 10th time overall. The Bulldogs run the ball about 73 percent of the time and average 228.1 yards per game on the ground. Zach Harvey is the leading rusher with 1,395 yards and 24 touchdowns on 228 carries, but sophomore Quen Wilson has come alive in the playoffs with 503 yards (866 for the season), including 152 in a 28-27 victory over Blessed Trinity last week. Defending state champion Cartersville has won 28 consecutive games, only one of which was decided by less than 10 points. The Purple Hurricanes pass the ball about 67 percent of the time, led by QB Trevor Lawrence, the nation's No. 1 recruit among juniors. Lawrence is 220-of-349 passing for 3,450 yards and 45 touchdowns. He threw for 197 yards and one TD in a 26-15 win over Woodward Academy last week.

Things to know: Thomson's victory over Jefferson in the regular season was the teams' first meeting since 1963 in a series that Thomson leads 7-2-2. Jefferson was trailed 28-20 with 4:54 remaining, but Thomson returned an onside kick for a touchdown and pulled away. Both teams prefer to run the ball - Thomson averages 319.2 yards per game rushing and 108.2 passing, and Jefferson averages 231.2 rushing and 76.3 passing. Thomson ran for a season-low 192 yards against Jefferson, and the Dragons finished with 127, their second-lowest total of the season.

Four Questions
2GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.
 
Gordon Powers, Model
1. What is the most memorable game you've been a part of as a player or coach? "My most memorable game as a player was at Austin Peay in 1977, clinching the OVC championship in our last game vs. East Tennessee. I made an interception on the last play of the game. Sid Fritts at Elbert County, Mark Daniel at Rutland and Andy McCollum at Georgia Tech were very good players on that team."
 
2. Which high school coach would you want your son to play for, and why? "So many coaches have influenced my life. Makes it hard to pick one. The three teammates mentioned above would be on my list. All three of my sons played for me. I wished they could have played for my dad. Their grandfather was a very successful coach in high school and later at Alabama with Bear Bryant. Stan Gann, the former coach at Northside Warner Robins, would be a great choice. Also, Danny Wiseman, who I took over for at Model in 2003, is a man with almost zero ego and has a great temperament and skill communicating with young men." [Gordon's father, Clayton Powers, was an Alabama assistant coach under from 1966 to 1970. Gordon Powers owns one of Bryant's houndstooth hats, a gift from his father, and his middle name is Bryant.]
 
3. What is your pet peeve as a coach or favorite saying/motto? "Our motto at Model has been 'No Fear.' It means play loose, all out, not worrying about mistakes, playing ahead, not looking back. Fear can prevent you from doing what should be done, on and off the field."
 
4. Which GHSA policy or high school football rule would you most like to see changed? "I would like the GHSA to be able to enforce many of the rules by using investigators, maybe retired coaches, to go observe reported illegal practices, recruiting, transfers, etc. I think it would really slow down the desire to break a rule if you know someone was watching and checking."
