2004 Football Preview
Class AAAA - Region 8
Cedar Shoals lost a wealth of talent, but a strong group of underclassmen are expected to contribute immediately. If the Jaguars can survive the early part of the season and allow their underclassmen to mature, they could challenge Clarke Central for the region crown. Cedar Shoals hosts Clarke Central on Sept. 10, a game that could determine the region champion.
A trio of Rockdale County schools – Heritage, Salem and Rockdale County – should jockey for playoff spots.
Heritage narrowly missed the postseason last year, finishing a game-behind Newton for the fourth seed. The Patriots won't have enough to challenge for the region title, but they have enough to make the postseason. Division I-A prospect Terrione Benefield (5-10, 175) returns at cornerback.
Salem will be improved. The Seminoles feature a strong college prospect in defensive end Dray Davis (6-2, 205).
Rockdale County struggled last season at times but should also improve.
Loganville welcomes a new coach in Eric Godfree. The former Parkview assistant is young and energetic, which could help transform the Red Devils into contenders.
Eastside and Habersham Central had subpar seasons and had it not been for Jackson County, the two teams would have occupied the cellar. The three teams should be better.
Madison County, which has played a non-region
schedule the past two seasons, is playing a region schedule in 2004.
