2005 Football Preview
Class AAAAA - Region 4
Only two teams from Region 4, Starr's Mill and Lovejoy, survived the first round of state last year and those two look strong again.
Starr's Mill, coming off a 10-2 season, is strong on the lines with two-way standout Tony Barr, a 6-3, 288-pound college prospect, leading the way. The skill positions also are strong with junior quarterback Robbie Davis building on an excellent sophomore season and halfbacks Antonio Scott and Brandon Lewis showing great ability. The defense will be good if it can replace the loss of all three linebackers.
Lovejoy, 8-4 a year ago, features a pair of huge linemen in Gabe Crews (6-2, 290) and Byron Isom (6-3, 260) and an explosive quarterback in Mario Fannin, a strong 5-11, 200-pounder. Safety Curtis Strong is a playmaker for the Wildcats' defense.
A team to watch is East Coweta, which went 6-5 and made state with a young core of players last season.
Newnan also was a state playoff team last year, but don't count out an improving
Mundy's Mill team led by dangerous running back Erroll Wynn.
Fayette County has work to do after a one-win season and Union Grove was winless in the region last year, although quarterback Travis Burks, who is being recruited by several Division I schools as a wide receiver, will give them a chance in some games.
