Class AAAAA - Region 2
Despite Stephenson's recent success, Douglass is receiving the most publicity. The Astros expect to have a handful of Division I signees, inlcuding star running back James Davis, who rushed for 1,692 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2003. A strong, powerful runner, Davis has drawn comparisons to former Douglass alum and NFL star Jamal Lewis. Developing consistent weapons, particularly wide receivers Gregory and Jarvis Smith, to complement Davis will be key for Douglass to reach the Georgia Dome.
Stephenson may have lost linebacker Joe Johnson, who signed with Georgia, but the Jaguars turn out some of the best players in the state every season and are expected to be a factor once again in the title hunt.
Riverdale, which moved from Region 4, and Tri-Cities both return lineups capable of leading the schools back to the postseason. Tri-Cities returns quarterback Troy Rutland and wide receiver Coleman Lynn — both Division I prospects.
Lithonia and Redan will likely pull off some upsets. Lithonia's speedy wide receiver Deante Lamar, linebacker Brandon Glass and defensive back Jeffery Harrison rank among the region's top players. Redan will rely on its experienced personnel.
