Class AAAAA - Region 3

2004 Georgia High School Football Preview

2004 Football Preview
Class AAAAA - Region 3

Few teams in state history have ever been as dominant as Camden County, which captured its first state title by going 15-0. The Wildcats gave up just 3.1 points a game and shut out nine teams. Defense will once again be Camden's strength as returning defensive ends Lashun Booth and Ryan Garze are both being recruited by several Division I schools. Offensively, the Wildcats return four starters and lose their starting quarterback, top running back and top wide receiver.

Beach, Bradwell Institute and Groves will all duke it out for the region's other playoff bids. Beach has gone 7-3 in the past three seasons, but hasn't been to the playoffs since 2001. Bradwell relies on a high-powered offense that scored more than 21 points in six different games. Groves remains one of the most remarkable stories in the state. After going 0-10 in '01, the Rebels went 8-3 last season and return star defensive back Tony Clark, who has verbally committed to Georgia Tech.

Brunswick was another playoff pariticpant from Region 3 last year and hopes to return in 2004.

Windsor Forest appears poised for a breakout season. After winning six games in the last three years, the Knights return 18 starters, including promising wide receiver Eron Riley.

Glynn Academy is led by speedsters Akeem Brown at running back and Jeremy Myrick at wide receiver.

Jenkins, Savannah Johnson, and Savannah will look to play their usual role of spoilers.
