Packed Dome sees Westlake win drumline battle


On December 14, 2014, the Atlanta Falcons partnered with Publix Super Markets to host the inaugural Publix Drumline Competition. Several schools entered to be part of the head to head on-field drumline competition during halftime of the Atlanta vs. Pittsburgh game.

Two schools were selected to compete, while a third school was selected to perform at State Farm Falcons Landing. Cobb County's Hillgrove High School came in third place. They were awarded $1,500 in Pulix gift cards to go towards their band program. All three schools selected got the opportunity to perform at Centennial Olympic Park and parade in the Falcons March prior to kickoff to rally up fans.

Westlake High School and Stephenson High School were selected as the top two contestants to battle one another for first place. While both schools brought fierce performances to thrill the sold out Week 14 clash with Pittsburgh, the Westlake High School drumline was crowned as this year's Publix Drumline Competition champion. 

Formally known as "The Sonic Boom" and led by Ahmad Worthy, Lynel Goodwin and Cedric Young, the Westlake Drumline includes some of Atlanta's finest young percussionists. The Westlake High School Drumline received $3,000 while 2nd place runner-up Stephenson High School received $2,500 in Publix gift cards.

The Atlanta Falcons' first drumline competition was a huge hit as fans were thoroughly engaged while cheering on both schools throughout the entire halftime show. This competition provided the exciting opportunity for high school students to perform in an NFL halftime show along with the contribution of funds to benefit the band programs. The Atlanta Falcons and Publix Super Markets look forward to repeating this new tradition in the upcoming years.  

Wild postseason shuffles final polls

playoffs and finishing runner up. McEachern re-entered the poll at No. 6 after inconsistencies during the regular season but a strong playoff push to the semifinals. North Gwinnett's first round exit to Central Gwinnett dropped the Bulldogs to No. 10.

In Class AAAAA, our preseason No. 1 Northside-Warner Robins reclaimed the top spot with a 25-18 victory over Mays for the Class AAAAA title. Allatoona and Stockbridge earn a spot in the top 4 and Jones County rounds out the top 5.

Buford was the wire-to-wire No. 1 in Class AAAA but there was still plenty of movement. Cartersville's freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence carried the Purple Hurricanes into the semis and they make the leap to No. 2 in the final poll. Runner-up St. Pius moved up to No. 3.

In Class AAA, Calhoun toppled Washington County 27-20 in the championship and switched spots atop the poll

with the Golden Hawks. Class AA preseason No. 1 Benedictine avenged the loss that initially dropped them from No. 1 this season by dominating GAC 45-21 in the state title game. Benedictine returns to the top team in Class AA's final poll and the Spartans (14-1) slide to No. 2.

Class A-Private state champion Mt. Paran retains its status at No. 1 while Class A-Public champion Hawkinsville takes over No. 1 for the first time this season.
