2006 Football Preview
Class A - Region 1
brought to you by:
Region 1 has underwent a few changes since last year. Gone is Turner County and in comes Bacon County, Calhoun County and Terrell County. Even though the region is subdivided, it features schools along the Georgia-Alabama border eastward to the Okefenokee Swamp, a distance of roughly 175 miles.
Terrell County and Seminole County, who competed in different regions last year, are expected to be the teams to beat in subregion A. But don't expect another 3-7 finish from Miller County. The Pirates were rebuilding last season and are expected to be back in the playoff race.
Calhoun County went 5-5 last season but lost a good bit of its talent. The Cougars could be a playoff contender but must fill some key positions.
Pelham seeks to improve on last year's 1-9 record.
In subregion B, don't let Clinch County's 7-5 record last year fool you. Even though the Panthers were in a rebuilding mode, Clinch rebounded after starting the season 0-3 against higher classification teams. They lost to a red-hot Twiggs County team in the second round.
Clinch will be one the teams to beat in subregion B. One of their top players will be senior wide receiver Lafiyama Lacey (6-2, 170).
Bacon County had success at
the Class AA level before dropping down. Bacon and
Atkinson County, who won just one game last year, had its worst season this decade and should improve. A rugged region schedule will likely keep Atkinson out of the postseason chase.
