High School Football Scrimmage Action

The High School Football season is upon us even if it is more than a week away from officially starting around the region, a region where the weather in August has been historically kind. Before all the “classic” game action and bevy of TV games hits us in a week or so, reps and experience against live competition is underway via scrimmage action. It’s that time when booster clubs slowly begin to ramp it up because they support a team/school/program that may have a shot at winning a state title.

Here are some results and notes from scrimmages held on Friday.

North Gwinnett 9 Stephenson 7: Stephenson’s defense was swarming to the ball most of the night but the North Gwinnett defense struck first scoring on a short fumble return for a touchdown when Bobby Young stripped the running back and scored.

Lovejoy 27 Peachtree Ridge 21: Lovejoy amassed 330 yards of offense in only two quarters. Junior Wide Receiver Preston Williams caught two touchdowns. Williams missed all of last season with a hip injury after having a productive summer on the 7-on-7 circuits.

Tucker 24 Marist 3: Dominic Sanders scored three touchdowns for Tucker including 71-yard TD run in the first quarter.

Byrnes (SC) 42 Erwin (NC) 26: Byrnes’ Shaedon Meadors had a 42yd touchdown reception and running back Isaiah Hill scored a 52-yard touchdown on a screen play.

Buford 47 Berkmar 0: Buford did well in the tune up and Berkmar will take morale victories and seek to improve as they play in the rugged Region 8-6A in Georgia. Buford plays in Class 3A.

Camden County 40 Milton 7: Harrison Poole scored touchdowns of 42 and 80 yards, he is a sophomore. Junior Antonio Wimbush scored on an 80-yard touchdown and recorded a sack. Ryan Johnson returned a punt 53-yards for a touchdown and Wimbush had a punt return over 30-odd yards as well. Camden threw the ball more than a couple of times meaning, it’s in their playbook, they’ll decide when to pull it out. Treyvon Paulk of Milton may have went over 70 yards on the ground but that is not official.

Gainesville (GA) 28 Grayson (GA) 27: Highly-touted and Clemson commit QB Deshaun Watson passed for 132 yards and 2 touchdowns. Aares McCall led Grayson on the ground with over 100 yards. Grayson scored a defensive touchdown in the game.

Valdosta 7 Ware County 6: Quarterback? Valdosta trailed 6-0 in the middle of the 4th quarter to the Georgia 2012 5A runner-up Ware County Gators before ending a drive, led by quarterback Jacob McMillan, in the end zone. Valdosta is searching for a quarterback since starter Cole Massengill went down with a season-ending injury in practice earlier this month.
