Class A - Region 3

2004 Football Preview
Class A - Region 3

Despite losing 5 starters on offense, including two-time All-State honorable mention QB Blake Boylston and 4 starters on defense, Coach Danny Britt will simply reload at Calvary Baptist and win another title in Region 3. A 29-28 loss to Metter in last year's regular season finale cost the Cavaliers an undefeated season. They rebounded by simply demolishing Taylor County 48-7 in the first playoff round before losing to Clinch 15-9. Those players returning this year learned some valuable lessons down in Homerville and should make some noise if a capable replacement is found for all-time school passing record holder, Boylston. Key returnees include running back Brandon Hardy (1213 yds/ 5.08 yds per carry), LB Justin Fields, who led the team in tackles, and all three receivers in Demarcus Dobbs, Ryan Claus and Wesley Howard. Claus (4.6 in the forty) also returns in the secondary where he had 7 INTs last year. The only team to beat Metter last year, the Emanuel County Institute Bulldogs, should be a strong contender again this year as they offer up equal amounts of speed and size. Savannah Country Day will be very young this year but may surprise some with their number of wins. McIntosh County Academy is really an unknown with their fourth head coach in four years.  But this new guy, Robbie Robinson, is a proven winner and will more than likely have the Bucs in the hunt. Jenkins County could very well be a dark horse but Portal, Bryan County and the Long County Blue Tide probably won't contend.
