Coaching legend Scott passes

Given the appropriate nickname “Great Scott” by a former Screven County High School football coach, Coach Harold Lee Scott passed away on Sunday, Nov. 19, at home surrounded by his family.  
A statewide basketball coaching legend, for two generations in places like Nahunta, Canton, Savannah, and Sylvania he was “Mr. Basketball.”  

It can’t get much more fun than this

There are eight teams left in all of Class AA playing in four games this Friday night. 

Two of the top five teams in the final regular season rankings will be at Kelly Memorial Stadium vying to become one of just four teams playing on Dec. 1. It just can’t get more fun than 11-0, No. 3-ranked Screven County hosting 12-0, No. 5-ranked Rabun County can it?

X-country at state; Alvarez third finished third overall

 The Screven County Lady Gamecock cross country team of Cindy LeMaster completed another successful season as they won their sixth consecutive region championship on October 25 and took part in the GHSA Class AA state finals in Carrollton on Saturday.  As a team SCHS finished 15th but the real story of the season and Carrollton was senior Katelyn Alvarez who, after four straight individual region titles, came home with a third place state wide finish.

Washington County Golden Hawks here for opening round of state

Coming into Kelly Memorial Stadium for the first time since the Class AA state championship contest of Dec. 17, 1994, the Washington County Golden Hawks will be here on Friday night for a 7:30 kickoff with the undefeated Region 4AA champion Screven County Gamecocks in the first round of the GHSA Class AA state playoffs.

Gamecocks lay waste to Warriors, repeat as 4AA champions

Region champs. The Gamecocks made it look so easy didn’t they?

From the opening drive that produced a score in three plays until the final horn sounded on a Jefferson County touchdown, the whole thing looked so easy didn’t it?  It was kind of like a year ago when it also looked so easy.  I know that looks can be very deceiving and the end results were not so easy, but in the eyes of a football novice and no doubt there were some in the stands, Friday night’s Region 4AA championship win by the Screven County High School Gamecocks of Ron Duncan surely must have looked that way.

Cheerleaders claim Region 4AA title

Better than doubling their only opposition the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheerleaders of Mary Helen Harrison and Vette Rountree easily outclassed the Jefferson County Lady Warriors 84.16 to 41.16 in the Region 4AA competition at Putnam County High School in Eatonton Saturday.

Gamecocks roll past Glenn Hills 35-0

Allowing fewer than 100 total yards for the third consecutive contest and posting their sixth straight shutout, the Screven County Gamecocks made the most of their first ever trip to The Pit on the campus of Glenn Hills with a 35-0 win over the Spartans on Oct. 27. 

With that win under their belt, the No. 2-ranked (GSWA) Roosters (8-0, 6-0) will now host the sixth-ranked Jefferson County Warriors (9-0, 6-0) in the 4AA title tilt Friday night at Kelly Memorial Stadium. 

It is finally here. The Warriors roll into town

In the early days of 2016 when football schedules for the 2016 and 2017 seasons were finalized, the one for the SCHS Gamecocks of Ron Duncan showed the team’s final regular game in each season featuring a matchup with the Jefferson County Warriors. 

The matchup was in Louisville on Nov. 4, 2016, and in Sylvania on Nov. 3, 2017. That latter date is upon us.

At the time all of us said, and I put it in my columns, that those two games should each be for the Region 4AA championship. They have been.

It is now time for Volume II of November football madness.

Inspired Spartans ready to host undefeated Gamecocks

With a roster that boasts more seniors than does the one of the SCHS Gamecocks (7-0, 5-0), the veteran Glenn Hills Spartans (5-3, 3-2) will host the red-hot Roosters Friday night at The Pit in Augusta. 

Needing one more win to guarantee their second consecutive playoff season for the first time since a five-year stretch between 1982-1986, the Spartans present one last hurdle for Ron Duncan’s Gamecocks before next week’s Jefferson County matchup of two top 10-ranked teams.

Gamecocks take care of business 42-0 over Josey
