Playoff Preview: AAAA and AAA Quarterfinals

Class AAAA

Sandy Creek at Cartersville

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Weinman Stadium, Cartersville

Records, rankings: Sandy Creek is 11-1, the No. 2 seed from Region 5-AAAA and No. 5; Cartersville is 11-1, the No. 1 seed from 7-AAAA and No. 3.

Last meeting: Cartersville won 17-16 in 2007.

Three things to know: 1. Sandy Creek and Cartersville were in the same region (6-AAA) in 2006 and 2007, and Cartersville beat Sandy Creek both years. Those are the only two times they have met. Sandy Creek has won at least 11 games and made the quarterfinals every season since then. Cartersville has won at least 11 games each of the past three seasons. 2. Sandy Creek RB Eric Swinney (committed to Ole Miss) has rushed for more than 1,700 yards, or about half of Sandy Creek's total offense. Defensive ends Trent Sellers (Georgia Tech) and Javonte Lain (Old Dominion) are Division I recruits. LB Elijah Gilmore is by far the leading tackler. Sandy Creek has won 72 consecutive games when holding opponents to 21 points or less. 3. Cartersville freshman QB Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 2,603 yards and 25 touchdowns, four of them in a 41-10 victory over Baldwin last week. Two of the TD passes went to Terrius Callahan on screen passes. RB Tiamon Pennymon, who had missed two games with an ankle injury, rushed for 88 yards on 11 carries. Another Cartersville weapon is RB/WR Kalin Heath, who is committed to Kansas State.

Maxwell Ratings' projection: Cartersville by 2

Winner plays: Marist/Buford winner


Marist at Buford

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Tom Riden Stadium, Buford

Records, rankings: Marist is 11-1, the No. 2 seed from Region 6-AAAA and No. 4; Buford is 12-0, the No. 1 seed from 8-AAAA and No. 1.

Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.

Three things to know: 1. Buford (87) and Marist (84) have won more playoff games than any other teams remaining in the state playoffs. They trail only Valdosta and Lincoln County all-time. Both have made the semifinals 18 times, so this game would break the tie. Buford has won 37 consecutive games, tied for the sixth-longest streak in GHSA history. 2. Marist took a 24-0 halftime against 2013 state champion Griffin last week and held on for a 31-21 victory. Marist rushed for 268 yards but was 1-for-7 passing. Griffin was 26-for-53 passing for 338 yards but was intercepted twice. Marist runs an option offense and averages 283.9 yards rushing per game, most of it from Ian Gipson (931 yards), QB Sam Phelts (703) and Griffin King (515). Marist has two all-state caliber linemen, DE Kenneth Brinson (offer from Georgia Tech) and OT Sage Harden (committed to Georgia). 3. Buford's Evyn Cooper, playing for starter Xavier Gantt (hamstring injury), rushed for 141 yards in a 35-14 victory over Mary Persons in the second round. Cooper has more than a dozen Division I offers, including one from Georgia Tech, yet he's merely Buford's third-leading rusher, a testament to Buford's rich roster. Mary Persons also played without its leading rusher, Dee High, and was held to 66 yards rushing. Buford has a number of major Division I recruits. They include DB David Curry (Virginia), DT Quay Picou (Tennessee) and LB Austin Smith (Tennessee).

Maxwell Ratings' projection: Buford by 19

Winner plays: Sandy Creek/Cartersville winner


West Laurens at St. Pius

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, George B. Maloof Stadium, Atlanta

Records, rankings: West Laurens is 9-3, the No. 1 seed from Region 2-AAAA and unranked; St. Pius is 10-2, the No. 1 seed from 6-AAAA and No. 7.

Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.

Three things to know: 1. This is West Laurens' first trip to the quarterfinals in 20 years. The program hadn't had a winning season since 2005. St. Pius, a state runner-up to Buford in 2012, has been in the quarterfinals seven times since Paul Standard became head coach in 2001. 2. St. Pius had 423 yards rushing in a 52-20 victory over Eastside last week. The Golden Lions average 323.1 yards rushing and 64.4 passing. Five St. Pius backs - Dalton Wilson, Joey Connors, Ransom Klinger, Grant Holloman and QB Reed Egan - have at least one game of 125 yards or more rushing. 3. West Laurens QB Garrel Quainton was 21-of-28 passing for 253 yards and four touchdowns - three to 6-foot-8 Justin Smith - in a 30-14 second-round victory over Stephens County. Smith had 12 catches for 160 yards and has 1,015 yards receiving on the season. Quainton has thrown for 1,755 yards. West Laurens also has a 1,000-yard rusher, sophomore Darius Bradford.

Maxwell Ratings' projection: St. Pius by 10

Winner plays: North Oconee/Woodward Academy winner


North Oconee at Woodward Academy

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Colquitt Stadium, College Park

Records, rankings: North Oconee is 9-3, the No. 2 seed from Region 8-AAAA and unranked; Woodward Academy is 10-2, the No. 1 seed from 5-AAAA and No. 6.

Last meeting: Woodward Academy won 53-21 in the first round of the 2013 Class AAA playoffs.

Three things to know: 1. Woodward Academy can reach the semifinals for the first time since its 1980 state-championship season. North Oconee, opened in 2004, is in the quarterfinals for the first time. It comes in a season in which both schools moved up in classification from AAA. 2. Woodward RB Elijah Holyfield rushed for 124 yards on 24 carries (all but one by Woodward's running backs) in a 28-6 victory over Burke County last week. That gives him 1,453 yards rushing on the season. FS Arrington Farrar, LB Max Richardson and freshman LB K.J. Phillips each were in on more than 10 tackles, and SS Darien Wiggins intercepted a pass and returned a fumble 96 yards for a touchdown. Jes Sutherland is 113-for-182 passing for 1,720 yards. 3. North Oconee RB Kawon Bryant rushed for 171 yards on 31 carries in a 14-7 victory over Cairo last week. He has 2,006 yards rushing unofficially on the season and 99 career touchdowns. QB Tate Adcockis is 102-of-193 passing for 1,336 yards. DB Zantravious Shields, an outstanding running back last season at Prince Avenue Christian before transferring back to North Oconee, is the leading tackler.

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, House of Pain, Sandersville

Records, rankings: Pierce County is 10-2, the No. 2 seed from Region 1-AAA and unranked; Washington County is 12-0, the No. 1 seed from 3-AAA and No. 1.

Last meeting: Washington County won 28-3 in the first round of the 1994 Class AA playoffs.

Three things to know: 1. Pierce County has 10 wins in a season for the third consecutive year and fourth time in its history. The Bears are in the quarterfinals for the first time since 2002 and have never reached the semifinals. Washington County has won three state titles, most recently in 1997, and is in the quarterfinals for the third consecutive season. 2. Pierce County averages 208.0 yards passing and 181.2 rushing. QB Stetson Bennett is 150-for-255 passing for 2,119 yards with 27 touchdowns and three interceptions. The Bears also have a 1,000-yard rusher (Joshua Henderson, 1,124 yards) and receiver (Terell Carter, 1,137). Bennett passed for three TDs and Henderson ran for two in a 49-6 victory over Oconee County in the second round. 3. Washington County matched its season low in points in a 31-7 victory against Callaway last week and had its streak of games with at least 50 points broken at seven. QB A.J. Gray was held to less than 100 yards both rushing (84) and passing (98) for the first time all season. Gray ran for 1,161 yards and passed for 1,278 yards in the regular season. Darius Tucker ran for 118 yards and a touchdown against Callaway.

Records, rankings: Blessed Trinity is 12-0, the No. 1 seed from Region 4-AAA and No. 3; Jefferson is 12-0, the No. 1 seed from 8-AAA and No. 5.

Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.

Three things to know: 1. This is one of two games in all classifications this week matching undefeated teams. GAC vs. Vidalia in Class AA is the other. Blessed Trinity's 12 wins are the most in school history, and the Titans are seeking their first trip to the semifinals. Jefferson, which won a state title in 2012, is in its third consecutive quarterfinal. 2. Blessed Trinity's Garrett Dupuis ran for a season-high 76 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-8 second-round victory over Adairsville. The Titans average 219.8 yards rushing and 135.3 passing. QB Conor Davis has passed for 1,585 yards, and RB Milton Shelton has rushed for 1,112. LB Pat Jasinski (80 solo tackles, 10 tackles for losses) was named co-defensive player of the year in 4-AAA. 3.

Maxwell Ratings' projection: Blessed Trinity by 3

Winner plays: Pierce County/Washington County winner


Elbert County at Calhoun

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Phil Reeve Stadium, Calhoun

Records, rankings: Elbert County is 9-3, the No. 3 seed from Region 8-AAA and unranked; Calhoun is 12-0, the No. 1 seed from 6-AAA and No. 2.

Last meeting: This is the teams' first meeting.

Three things to know: 1. Elbert County is in the quarterfinals for the third time since winning the Class AA title in 1995 but hasn't been back to the semifinals. Calhoun is in the quarterfinals for the seventh consecutive season. The Yellow Jackets appeared in five straight finals from 2008 to 2012, winning the title in 2011. 2. Elbert County trailed 3-0 early but dominated the rest of the way in a 54-3 victory over Appling County in the second round. The 54 points were the most the Blue Devils have ever scored in a playoff game. Elbert has been boosted in the postseason by the return of QB/DB Mecole Hardman, who missed six games with a meniscus injury. Hardman averaged 136 yards per game rushing in the regular season and had 225 in a first-round victory against Lumpkin County. 3. Calhoun's 38-18 victory against Cedar Grove in the second round was its closest game since a 27-13 victory over Ringgold on Sept. 26. Calhoun outscored its 6-AAA opponents by an average score of 52-8 in winning its 14th consecutive region title. Junior QB Kaelan Riley was 17-for-21 passing for 262 yards and a touchdown against Cedar Grove. LB Austin Bennett had 19 tackles, and LB Jireh Wilson had 11 tackles and two sacks.

Maxwell Ratings' projection: Calhoun by 16

Winner plays: Westminster/Hart County winner


Westminster at Hart County

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Pete Herndon Stadium, Hartwell

Records, rankings: Westminster is 11-1, the No. 3 seed from Region 4-AAA and No. 6; Hart County is 11-1, the No. 2 seed from 8-AAA and No. 8.

Last meeting: Westminster won 6-3 in the first round of the 1996 Class AA playoffs.

Three things to know: 1. Westminster broke a seven-game second-round losing streak last week to reach the quarterfinals for the first time since 2003. The Wildcats' last trip to the semifinals came in 1996. Hart County has double-digit victories and is in the quarterfinals for the first time since 2006. The Bulldogs' last semifinal appearance came in 1999. 2. Westminster advanced to the quarterfinals with a 27-10 victory over previously unbeaten Central of Carrollton. Zay Malcome rushed for 80 yards, giving him 1,430 for the season. Malcome was named co-offensive player of the year in 4-AAA. Cortez Alston returned a fumble 21 yards to give Westminster the lead for good after trailing 10-6 at halftime. Westminster QB Rankin Woley has not played in the playoffs because of injury, and Westminster attempted only six passes, one a 21-yard TD pass from WR Sebastian Mosso to Malcome. 3. Hart County QB Cameron Fouch was 9-for-17 passing for 162 yards in a 7-0 victory over Cook last week. His 34-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Turner with 11:39 to play in the first half was the game's only score. Hart County finished with 235 yards of total offense and held Cook to 146. Fouch has passed for 2,584 yards on the season, and Turner has 42 catches for 729 yards and eight touchdowns. The Bulldogs average 175.9 yards per game rushing.

with a wrap up of the playoff situation. 


Four QuestionsPresented By Georgia Farm Bureau 

GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.


Amos McCreary, Whitewater

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? "My high school coach, Charlie Hunter. He taught me to keep going even though the road may have a few bumps. One of his favorite sayings: 'Life is like a beautiful bird until it poops on you, and then you must wipe it off and keep on going.'"


2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced? "Eric Berry, Creekside. He played on offense and defense and was equally as good on both sides. As a rookie in the NFL, he was in the Pro Bowl."


3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach?"Gainesville High School in the 2012 state semifinals. They beat us 28-14, and the next week had Ware County 40-0 in the first half. They had Deshaun Watson, now the starting quarterback at Clemson. [Gainesville led Ware County only 28-7 in the first half, but it was 42-7 in the third quarter.]


4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change? "Well, Gary Phillips is on the inside every day, and if there is a rule that needs changing he will get it changed.

 Beating No. 1

Mays became the eighth Atlanta Public Schools team to defeat a No. 1-ranked team last week with its victory over Ware County. Many of the head coaches involved in these eight games can be found in halls of fame. They include Buck Godfrey of Southwest DeKalb, Nick Hyder of West Rome, Wayman Creel of Northside (Atlanta), Erk Russell of Grady and Selby Buck of Lanier. Charlie Brannon was head coach of two of the teams that beat top-ranked teams - 1968 Therrell and 1976 Douglass. Brannon died earlier this year at age 83.

Colquitt County will clinch Region 1-AAAAAA with a victory over Tift County this week. Screven County, not Swainsboro, will clinch Region 3-AA with a victory this week. We had those wrong in Monday's Daily List.
