2004 Football Preview
Class AAAA - Region 2
Effingham County and Wayne County were contenders in Region 3-AAAAA last season. A drop in classification should help them seriously challenge for the playoffs. Effingham County and Statesboro are longtime rivals.
Baldwin narrowly missed the playoffs last year. With a wealth of talent returning that has good size and speed, the Braves could challenge for the playoffs, especially if some linemen on the offensive front develop. Senior wide receiver Nick Kyles (6-2, 190) runs a time of 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash and is one of the top receiving prospects in the Southeast. Kyles' twin brother, Jarvis (6-1, 175), gives the Braves stability in the secondary at cornerback.
Evans should improve as the Knights become better adjusted to second-year coach Marty Jackson. For the first time in four years, Evans will play opponents nearby. The Knights competed in metro Atlanta Class AAAAA regions during the past four years.
Greenbrier lost a good bit of talent from last year's team that made the playoffs, but a strong group of sophomores and juniors could help the Wolfpack challenge for the postseason again.
Lakeside-Evans struggled last season but should be improved.
Jones County won two games last year, including
a 10-7 upset of Butler (a playoff qualifier) in its season finale. The
Greyhounds hope to build off that victory.
