2004 Football Preview
Class AA - Region 2
Last season, the Indians threw the ball more times in one game than many teams threw the entire season. Replacing All-State Quarterback Jeremy Privett and wide receiver Tristan Bridges won't be easy. Charlton figures to be solid defensively with senior defensive tackle Justin Mincey (6-6, 255) anchoring up front. Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Miami are heavily recruiting him.
Appling County made the playoffs in Class AAA last season but exited after a 56-0 beating by Laney in the first round. The Pirates figure to challenge for the region title after dropping a classification. Fitzgerald is just four years removed from playing in the Class AAA state championship game. The Purple Hurricanes were contenders last season in Region 1-AAA and made the second round of the playoffs. They should contend for a postseason berth.
Irwin County also made the postseason as a member of Region 2-AA last season and should once again contend. Sophomore offensive lineman Justin Anderson (6-5, 290) is a junior and gives the Indians a nucleus to build around.
A team to watch out for is Jeff Davis, who moves to Region 2 from Region 3.Former Clinch County coach Cecil Barber, who guided Clinch to a Class A state title in 2002 and a state semifinal appearance in 2003, takes over a program that struggled last season.
Pierce County, Bacon County and Brantley County will have a tough time contending for playoff spots in a stiff region.
