2006 Football Preview
Class A - Region 4
brought to you by:
The old Region 2-A becomes Region 4-A with some new faces. Calhoun County, Randolph-Clay and Terrell County are out, while Greenville and Chattahoochee County move in, joining familiar teams Brookstone, Central-Talbotton, Pacelli, Schley County, Stewart-Quitman and Taylor County.
Greenville probably has the most athletes of any school in this region, but it remains to be seen if the Patriots can shake off a disappointing end to the 2005 season. Greenville, which competed in Class AA last year, lost five of its last six after starting the season 4-0. There is enough returning talent to contend for the region title if the Patriots can rebound.
Brookstone had its best season under coach Blair Harrison in 2005, going 8-3. The Cougars have steadily improved since he arrived in 2003, combining to win 15 games the past two seasons. Nine seniors return to help guide Brookstone back to the playoffs.
Taylor County should be much-improved after finishing 3-7 last year. The team returns most of its starters and should be back in the postseason chase.
Pacelli will be a team to keep an eye on. Several players graduated from last year and new coach Jeff Battles inherits a young team that has endured an off-season of turmoil, one in which the school was fined for using an ineligible player and the transfers of several athletes. If the Vikings can survive off-the-field troubles, they could be in the playoff hunt.
Schley County is expected to improve as well as Stewart-Quitman, who won two games last season, a milestone for a program which has struggled to get a win.
Chattahoochee County makes its varsity debut and will join Central-Talbotton at the bottom of the region.
