2004 Football Preview
Class AA - Region 1
Brooks County went 8-3-1 last year and saw its season come to an end in the second round of the playoffs against Early County. But the Trojans believe they can contend for the region title. Led by a pair of Division I-A prospects — free safety Joseph Huewitt (6-3, 190) and defensive end/offensive tackle Ronald Neloms (6-2, 200) — the Trojans figure to be in the hunt.
Cook went 11-2 last year and should be back in the chase this year. If they can survive play in a rugged region, the Hornets could once again go deep in the postseason. Four solid running backs return — Andrel Lamp, Amp Morris, Cedric Mason and Tony Carnegia — which should give the Hornets' quarterback time to mature.
Thomasville got off to a slow start last season, losing its first three games to non-region, higher classification teams. But the Bulldogs won their next seven, including a perfect mark in region play, to win the championship. But after beating Perry, Thomasville fell 23-0 to Laney in the Class AAA playoffs to end its season at 8-4. The Bulldogs lost 26 seniors but should still jockey for a playoff position.
Mitchell-Baker made the postseason last year, but with a much-tougher region and the loss of several key standouts, the Eagles could find themselves out of the mix this year.
Berrien and Albany struggled last
season and will likely do the same this season.
