GAVSV - Game of the Week

STOCKBRIDGE – After capturing the 4A State Championship last season, Northside-Warner Robins has been near perfect this year.

The No. 1-ranked Eagles will have to be all that and then some tonight when it travels to Stockbridge High to face off against the Tigers in a 4B-AAAA showdown at 7:30 p.m.

Northside-Warner Robins (5-0 overall, 2-0 region) has run over its competition so far this season, boasting an impressive balanced attack that features a high-scoring offense and a low-scoring-against defense.

The Eagles have scored 198 points this season – good enough for a 39.6 average – and have allowed just a staggering 4.0 points per game.

While Stockbridge (4-1 overall, 1-1 region) has allowed just over 16 points per game, the Tiger offense has got its job done putting up 30.0 points per contest.

The run-first offense of the Eagles is highlighted by senior standout Tijuan Green.

The 5-foot-11 and 190-pound, two-star prospect is averaging 133.4 yards rushing per game and 8.7 yards per carry this season. He has recorded 15 rushing touchdowns and added 130 yards receiving on nine catches.

Quarterback Marques Ivory has been a steady force for Northside-Warner Robins so far, too. The senior signal caller has completed 36 of his 56 pass attempts for 588 yards, three scores and one interception.

Stockbridge quarterback Tyler Bass has paved the way for the Tigers this season. The three-star prospect has earned scholarship offers from schools such as Purdue, Indiana, Tulane and Western Kentucky.

Since 2002 the Eagles have won five straight over the Tigers, outscoring Stockbridge 306-49. Included in that is a 62-6 drubbing in 2004.
