Class AAAAA - Region 3
brought to you by:
Otherwise known as the region with Camden County and everyone else, Region 3-AAAAA is the most top heavy group in Class AAAAA. But the top heavy is just one team, Camden.
The Wildcats have ruled their region to the tune of a state-record tying 56 straight regular-season wins, a streak that will be tested in the season opener vs. Brookwood. Beyond that, the regular season shouldn't have many pitfalls for one of the state's perennial powers.
Camden, 12-1 last season, returns its second-leading rusher in Mario Roberts, a fullback who bruised for 842 yards and 10 TDs in 2005. More importantly the bulk of the line returns along with 6-foot-4, 260-pound tight end Rennie Moore, a Clemson commitment. That should make life easier for a team breaking in a new quarterback for the third straight year.
The defense is packed with athletes as it has been in recent years. Leading the way is Georgia Tech commitment Willie White at free safety along with defensive end Josh Myers, nose guard Dionisio Cox and linebacker Vince Smith.
Behind Camden, Groves has been
one of the most consistent teams in the region with three straight playoff
appearances. The Rebels, 6-5 last year, have had more football success
lately than the other Savannah-area schools, who have struggled in recent
Beach has a decent shot at a better record than last year's 3-7 mark, as does Savannah. Both Jenkins and Johnson went 1-9 last year and have hopes of climbing higher on the region ladder.
