GAVSV Game of the Week

STONE MOUNTAIN – Region 2-AAAAA supremacy is on the line Friday night at 8 p.m. as the Stephenson High Jaguars face off with the MLK Lions in a battle of undefeated teams.

Fresh off a nail-biting 22-21 victory over Douglass last Friday, the Lions (6-0 overall, 3-0 region) and its potent offensive attack (36.8 points per game) must face a tough Jaguars (5-0, 2-0) club.

Stephenson's defense has allowed just 14 total points through seven games – good enough for a staggering 2.8 points against average.

In its previous games, Stephenson thrashed Lithonia High by a score of 50-6.

The Jaguars are led by a trio of two-star prospects that have all committed to play collegiate football at Marshall next year. Cornerbacks Destin Route and Ahmed Shakoor pace the defense while wide receiver Cory McCutcheon helps guide the offensive side of the ball,

Stephenson won last year's contest between the two, 17-6.
