2006 Football Preview
Class A - Region 6
brought to you by:
Region 6 was one of the few regions during reclassification that didn't feature much change. Bowdon, Bremen, Gordon Lee and Trion will continue to compete in this region like they did during the previous two. The only difference is Temple moved out and Mt. Zion-Carrollton moved in, making an already tough region even tougher.
If you're a Bowdon fan, who could forget last season's run to the state semifinals? The only thing Red Devil fans are thinking about is making it a step farther to play for a championship. There is enough returning talent to make a similar run, but Bowdon will have to fight its way through a rugged region to earn a trip back to the postseason.
Bremen's 11-2 finish last season wasn't a fluke and who knows exactly how the Blue Devils could have finished had they not met eventual state champion Lincoln County in the third round. Expect a similar season from Bremen this year.
Don't be surprised if Gordon Lee is a serious region title contender. There is a wealth of returning players at the skill positions and enough offensive and defensive linemen to get the job done. After a 6-6 campaign in 2005, Gordon Lee is looking for more.
Trion won only three games last year but is expected to get things turned around. Mt. Zion-Carrollton made the playoffs in Region 5 last season even though its season ended in the first round. However, Mt. Zion is playing a non-region schedule.
