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.
