2006 Football Preview
Class AAAA - Region 2
brought to you by:
Just because Westlake is moving
up in class, don't think the Lions won't be successful. The team returns
a pair of four-star college prospects by scout.com in senior quarterback
Cameron Newton (6-6, 225) and cornerback Addison Williams (5-9, 170).
Newton can do a little of everything and will have a strong supporting
cast on offense with the return of running back Mychaal Harrison (5-7,
170) and wide receivers Tim Pope (6-2, 190) and Deshon Lawrence (6-1,
190), all seniors.
Keep a watch for Northgate, which is poised to have one its better seasons in school history. A wealth of talent returns including senior quarterback Andre Morris (6-2, 170) and running back Mike Davis (6-1, 225). The Vikings showed promise last year but also were inconsistent. They were good enough to beat Haralson County, a playoff team but failed to beat Woodward Academy and Chapel Hill.
Woodward Academy hopes to break a streak of back-to-back 5-5 campaigns. The War Eagles missed the playoffs for the second straight season.
Banneker moves up from Class AAA and competed well. However, the Trojans will find competing in a higher classification a bit harder. McIntosh, Fayette County and Whitewater should improve but not enough to be a factor in the region standings.
