SCORE ATLANTA PUBLICATION

Check out this week's publication!




BREAKING NEWS
Walton gets hit with forfeits, drops to 1-4

The Georgia High School Association has ruled that Walton High School has to forfeit three of its victories including a 59-16 win region over Lassiter. The ruling comes after earlier this week

Photo by Ty Freeman

when Score Atlanta reported the news of Walton self-reporting to the GHSA that it had played an ineligible player on its football team. At the time, Walton was 4-1 overall and 2-1 in Class AAAAAA Region 5.

 

The Raiders opened the season with non-region wins over South Gwinnett and Marietta before opening region play with a win over Lassiter before losing to Roswell and beating Wheeler last Friday night. The ineligible player participated in all games except the Wheeler win so Walton's record goes to 1-4 overall and 1-2 in the region.

 

Walton coach Mo Dixon told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "In no way, shape or fashion was anything done intentionally," Dixon said. "People naturally assume the worst. None of us are ever going to do anything to jeopardize a program or a kid or even your job. Nothing was manipulated. It was a mistake ... Our plans are the same. We'll try to win them all. We'll be in the hunt. We'll be all right. We just have no wiggle room now. But the bottom line is our kids have a chance."



 


FRIDAY PREVIEW
By Craig Sager II
All eyes on Region 1-AAAAAA unbeatens 

Georgia high school football has long been divided by its North vs. South rivalry Regardless of personal preference, all eyes will be on south Georgia tonight and Region 1-AAAAAA. The six teams skated through non-region play with a combined 29-0 record and it will be the first time ever that you will see this type of action take place within one region on a single night.


 

(5-0) Valdosta at (5-0) Camden County


 

Valdosta's win total has decreased the last four seasons, but that trend looks to be part of the past. The 5-0 Wildcats are one win away from matching last year's six-win season. Camden County won last season's matchup 14-10 and will face an even better Valdosta defense this year. Joshua Norwood is arguably the best defensive back in the state and leads a ball-hawking and hard-hitting secondary.  The Valdosta secondary allows the defense to blitz and be aggressive. In five games, only Thomas County Central has put up points. The Wildcats are allowing a state-best two points per game.

            Camden County will aim to increase the tempo of this game. The Wildcats of Kingsland have averaged 42 points per game this season while allowing just 15.6 points per game. 10 different players have scored rushing touchdowns and Camden County will look to keep the ball on the ground against Valdosta. The key for Valdosta will be forcing Camden into passing situations. Camden County has only had to attempt 22 passes this season with a 377 rushing yards per game average.


 

(5-0) Lowndes at (5-0) Colquitt County


 

No other team in Region 1 has been tested like Colquitt County. The 5-0 Packers have wins over Mill Creek, Hoover (Ala.) and Enterprise (Ala.) and have won each game by at least 17 points. Chase Parrish has been fantastic at quarterback for Colquitt County. The junior is completing 71.6 % of his passes and has thrown nine touchdowns with just two interceptions. Junior wideout Qwazavia Lee leads the Packers receiving corps with 20 catches for 348 yards and five touchdowns.

            Lowndes battled past Newton two weeks ago in a 17-14 win and has victories over Plant (Fla.) and Roswell to add to its resume. The Vikings fell 37-7 last season to Colquitt County and will look to keep the football on the ground. Lowndes has averaged 237.8 rushing yards per game and junior Dezmond Copeland has paced the backfield with 94.8 rushing yards per game and five touchdowns.


 

(4-0) Lee County at (5-0) Tift County


 

Tift County's defense has allowed just 4.2 points per game, while winning all five games by at least 22 points. The Blue Devils have not won more than five games in a season since 2008 and have won just 2-of-12 region games the last two seasons. Lee County has won with its defense and has outscored its last two opponents 101-18.


 

The Trojans finished 10-2 in Class AAAAA last year, and Tift County will be Lee County's first-ever Class AAAAAA opponent. 




COMMUNITY QUARTERBACK
Maureen Lok recognized for innovative work

Flowery Branch, GA - The Atlanta Falcons Community Quarterback Award honors volunteers in Georgia (ages 13 and over) who exemplify leadership and dedication to bettering their communities. Each month during the 2014 season, September through December, an Atlanta Falcons Community Quarterback of the Month winner will be selected. Each winner will receive a $1,000 grant from the NFL Foundation to support the organization served.  Additionally, on Monday, December 15, each of the Atlanta Falcons Community Quarterback Award winners will be recognized at the annual Atlanta Falcons Community Honors Dinner and the 2014 Community Quarterback Award Winner of the Year will be announced.  


The Atlanta Falcons are pleased to announce Maureen Lok as the Atlanta Falcons Community Quarterback Award Winner for October for her volunteer work with The Center for Children & Young Adults.


Lok began volunteering with The Center for Children & Young Adults in 2001. She has managed the community garden as a volunteer for 13 years and can be found two days a week digging in the dirt on campus. As the volunteer garden manager, Lok continues to lead and motivate her fellow Master Gardeners and works directly with the Youth Garden Club to instruct on how to prepare the ground, plant and harvest vegetables and fruit to farm to table. In 2013, CCYA farmed to table over 450 pounds of fresh produce from the garden. Lok continues to work tirelessly to engage new community partners to help support the expansion of the community garden as well as established a youth entrepreneurship project with Kennesaw State University to offer healthy cooking lessons which incorporate produce from the community garden.


The Center for Children & Young Adults was established in 1981 and began housing youth in 1984. Their mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment with comprehensive services for homeless Georgia youth and young adults ages 12-20 who have been abused, abandoned, neglected, or are at risk. Ultimately, CCYA wants to help teens who have no other placement or family resources to transition successfully into independence and self-sufficiency.
