2004 Football Preview
Class AAA - Region 6
Cartersville was a few plays from upsetting LaGrange when the two met last season. The Purple Hurricanes finished as the region runner-up and could be the team to beat. Cartersville's offense should be exciting with the return of wide receiver Anthony Barnes (6-3, 210). A pair of prospects on the offensive front - Ian Smith (6-3, 280) and Mike Fair (6-3, 260) – will provide the team's skill players with plenty of protection.
After missing the postseason last year, Cedartown should be back in the playoff chase. More than 70 players went through spring drills for the Bulldogs. The good news is that wide receiver Corey Gardhigh (6-3, 210) returns after averaging more than 20 yards per catch last year.
Since Rayvan Teague arrived in Carrollton three years ago, he's helped Carrollton back to the elite status the Trojans enjoyed under the late Ben Scott. Carrollton should once again challenge for the postseason.
Banneker always has athletes with good speed and should challenge for a playoff spot. The Trojans feature one of the state's top wide receiving prospects in Carlos Thomas (6-1, 180). The speedster has been timed in the 40-yard dash at 4.4 seconds. If some linemen can block up front, Banneker has a chance to be the region's most exciting team.
Central-Carrollton improved last season but not
enough to crack the .500 mark. The competition isn't going to get easier.
Cass also struggled. Both are expected to continue improving but
not enough to jockey for a playoff berth.
