Winners of five straight and nine of their 10 games in 2007, Norcross High's path to the state playoffs had its share of ups and downs - but mostly its ups.
The talented Blue Devils (9-1 overall, 7-1 regional) scored over 30 points per game this year and allowed just under 10. They weren't tested too often and suffered only one loss all season at the hands of Peachtree Ridge.
Their potent offensive attack is highlighted by three playmakers.
Talented wide receivers Brice Butler (Southern Cal commitment) and Devonta Bolton (Alabama commitment) set things up on the outside for the Blue Devils while rising rusher D.J. Adams has been one of the most consistent tailbacks in the entire Peach State all season long.
Etowah may not boast the star power that their first-round counterparts do but make no mistake about it, there is some talent on the Eagles' side of the ball.
Etowah (7-3, 5-3) averaged just over 18.3 points per game this year and allowed just under 11. Two weeks ago they took No. 1 seed North Cobb the distance before falling by just seven points to the talented team.
Norcross is a No. 1 seed also while the Eagles are a No. 4 seed.
