You couldn't ask for a better matchup if you are a fan of high school football in the state of Georgia.
Two top-ranked teams, a regional rivalry and championship implications are all found in Friday night's matchup between No. 2 North Gwinnett and No. 6 Norcross.
The winner of the game earns bragging rights and, more importantly, the Region 7-AAAAA Championship.
The Blue Devils (8-1 overall, 7-1 Region) - led by the stellar receiving duo of Brice Butler and Devonta Bolton - comes into the game looking to maintain the dominance they have possessed in recent years over the Bulldogs (9-0, 7-0).
Norcross has won four of the last five meetings between the two - including last season's 31-10 romp.
The playoff-bound Blue Devils are averaging just under 31 points per game thanks to the afore mentioned tandem of wide receivers. Butler, a five-star prospect is committed to Southern Cal, and Bolton, a four-star prospect, is going to wall college ball at the University of Alabama.
Defensively, Norcross give up just over nine points per contest.
North Gwinnett enters the ball game thinking revenge after last season's outcome. The Bulldogs had entered that game undefeated and ranked No. 1 for the first time in school history.
They may not boast the same ranking this season but they are once again undefeated thanks to a balanced attack that features an offense that scores 30.2 points per game and a defense that allows 10.2.
The Bulldogs have a playmaking defensive end in Robert Pritchard. Much of the attention may be placed on the Norcross skill players but the Central Florida commit is one to watch Friday night.
