GAVSV.com Game Of The Week

Saturday at the Georgia Dome the 2009 football season kicks off with a 4 games in the Corky Kell Classic. No offense to the other 3 games, but the headliner is between Grayson and defending 5A State Champions Camden County. Let's take a look at this game and pick a winner.

Grayson got everybody's attention last year by defeating the "unbeatable" Lowndes Vikings. I remember people started texted me as soon as Grayson got up and they never let up on the Vikings. However the season didn't end the way the Rams wanted,so I know the are hungry coming into this game against another South Georgia power.

I never will forget watching Camden County come single file down those steps last year at Newnan. It must have taken them 15 minutes to get all their players from that locker room to the actual field. I was impressed to say the least.

Mickey Conn and Jeff Herron are two of the best around and both have teams that are full of college prospects and overall great high school football players.

This will be a old fashion slobber knocker in the dome. If you don't like to hit, this would not be the game for you as a player.

Ean Pemberton will be awfully tough and extremely fast on that turf. Camden must find him and tackle him in the open field. Camden County defense better play well in space and not miss tackles on this young man or he will make it a longer trip back to Kingsland , Georgia.

I have been leaning to Grayson for about a month now with my choice, but after interviewing coach Herron last week, he had a quiet confidence about him.

I am going to go with that gut feeling that Coach Herron was playing a little possum with me, and this team can be as good as last year.
