Crown Up For Grabs

Eihter Wilcox County or Dooly County can nab the Region 2-A Division A title with a win in Venna tonight.

This is what the schedule-makers had in mind when they went to work prior to the 2007 Georgia high school football season.

Two teams. One game. A regional championship on the line.

Dooly County and Wilcox County will do just that when they battle tonight to determine who claims the 2007 Region 2-A Division A title.

The Bobcats (8-0 overall, 3-0 Region) have yet to have a setback this season thanks to a balanced offensive and defensive attack. Dooly County is averaging just over 31 points per game while allowing just 11.0.

The Patriots (7-1, 2-1), on the other hand, have been just as impressive despite the extra loss. Wilcox County posts 35.8 points per game compared to their 5.9 allowed on defense.

The Patriots feature a pair of playmaking twin brothers, Alfonzo and Lorenzo Dennard, and the Bobcats will have to figure out a way to stop them.

Lorenzo plays quarterback for the Patriots while Alfonzo lines up at receiver and cornerback and has drawn interest from schools such as North Carolina and Troy.

"Our season is going pretty good," Dennard said in a recent interview with "We're 7-1. If my team keeps playing like we're playing right now, we're going to go far."

If that is indeed the case, the Patriots must improve to 8-1 tonight.

Dooly County had won five straight in the series before Wilcox County snapped that streak last season with a 20-6 victory.
