2006 Football Preview
Class AAAAA - Region 6
brought to you by:
Jonathan Dwyer is one of the nation's top running backs and his team is one of Cobb's best.
Kell and Dwyer went 8-4 last season, but a stellar offensive line and the standout running back behind it bring aspirations of much more. Tight end David Duran, at 6-foot-5, 245 pounds, gives Dwyer another strong blocker.
Kell's top competition in subregion A could come from Walton, which has high hopes of maintaining its high standards of recent years despite losing a lot to graduation. Being physical up front has been a trademark of the Raiders in recent years, and Auburn commitment Bailey Woods at tight end and his teammates are powerful again.
Lassiter, coming off a 6-4 season, is led by running backs Allan Dumich and Patrick Harrigan, who combined for 1,547 yards last season. Pope (4-6), Wheeler (4-6) and Sprayberry (1-9) will need to improve to reach the region's upper tier. Sprayberry's hopes are pinned on David Carter, who rushed for 1,103 yards as a freshman last year.
Subregion B features six teams, but only 9-3 Roswell had a winning record in 2005. Running back Jordan Allen and the Hornets enter as the favorite in a region that got much tougher when three teams, Northview, Chattahoochee and Centennial, moved over from 7-AAAAA.
Northview is led by dynamic quarterback Justin Tuggle, the son of former Falcon linebacker Jessie Tuggle. Although its record was 2-8, Chattahoochee doesn't stay down for long and its line features UGA commitment Clint Boling, a 6-foot-5, 270-pounder. Centennial has work to do after a dismal 1-9 season.
Milton is one of the bigger teams in subregion B with 295-pounder Joey Bachrodt, 270-pounder John Minella and 250-pounder Emory Attig. The unknown is newcomer Alpharetta, which was 5-5 vs. non-region competition last year.
