HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL New prep football schedules present immediate challenges for county teams By CHRIS GOLTERMANN Upon the release of this fall’s high school football schedules by the Georgia High School Association, local fans are in for their share of good news and bad news. First the good. It wasn’t quite as hard to find non-region opponents this time around for East Coweta, Newnan and Northgate, all of whom have more division opponents. If that didn’t seem a near impossible task during the GHSA’s last reclassification period in 2012. Now the bad. All three will have to be at their best to open the season in what should be a doozy of a start to 2014. The lineup of non-region opponents is enough to make practicing in the intense heat of August feel even less comfortable. For Class AAAAAA schools East Coweta and Newnan — both of whom return to an expanded Region 3 that gains three Cobb County schools and drops Tri-Cities — the list includes Carrollton, Marietta and Sandy Creek for the Cougars. The three non-region opponents had a combined record of 32-5-1 last season. The Aug. 29 opener at Carrollton’s Grisham Stadium is the first meeting between schools since 2007, after playing annually for a sixyear span. Coming off last year’s trip to the Class AAAA state title game, the Trojans enter the season under new head coach Ed Dudley, who was an assistant and defensive coordinator at the school in the early 1990s. The Cougars played both Marietta and Sandy Creek the past two years while renewing their series for both 2014 and 2015. “The way I look at it, it gives you a chance to see where you’re at early in the season,” Newnan head coach Mike McDonald said. “And it gives you a chance to start the season off in the right way by winning those games. It’s a tough schedule. We made a lot of calls.” The Indians, meanwhile, didn’t get let off the hook either while entering their first year under new head coach Tommy Pardue. Pardue, who led LaGrange to 161 victories over 17 seasons before spending two years at the University of Kentucky as an assistant, equally knows his first three games on the sidelines in purple and gold will be challenging. East Coweta opens the season on Aug. 29 at Garland Shoemake Stadium against an upstart Arabia Mountain program coming off a 7-3 season, its best in its first five seasons. It continues with a trips to Harrison and Whitewater. “I couldn’t do anything about the schedule,” Pardue joked. “I inherited it with the job. “Now, it’s three good football teams. Arabia Mountain was 7-3 last year and they should be very strong. Harrison, from what I’ve heard, has one of the top junior quarterbacks in the state. Whitewater’s strong every year. We’ve got our work cut out for us.” If that doesn’t sound ‘scary’ enough, here’s another screamer — How about a NewnanEast Coweta game on Halloween? That’ll be the case this fall, where the annual meeting between the Cougars and Indians will come a week prior to the end of the regular season where the programs had been scheduled to play on a yearly basis since 2001. Both schools began spring practice on May 5. Pardue said East Coweta will wrap up the two-week period with the annual ‘E’-Night game on May 16. “I’ve been tickled to death so far. A lot’s been going on with a new fieldhouse and that’s been great,” Pardue said. “It’s been a whirlwind getting things ready, meeting as many of the players and getting to know them a little bit more during their spring seasons.” Northgate also began the spring practice period on May 5, with many of the same challenges the program faced during the previous two-years in Region 4-AAAAA. Again, the Vikings will have to find a way to finish among the top-four of a large 13-school region if they want to advance into the state playoffs. Gone are Whitewater and Creekside — two of the toughest opponents in last year’s 4B-AAAAA subregion. Northgate shifts to the A-Subregion side in a larger seven-team division. While rejoined by Fayette rivals Starr’s Mill and McIntosh, the schedule now includes four subregion opponents from Clayton — Morrow, Mundy’s Mill, Drew and Forest Park. The final week of the regular season will again include a region play-in format with crossover games between subregions. The 4B-AAAAA division consists entirely of six schools from Henry County — Woodland, Ola, Union Grove, Dutchtown and region newcomers Stockbridge and Luella. The Vikings’ non-region schedule to begin the season provides equal challenges. Northgate opens with back-to-back home games against Shaw and Troup, both out of Region 5-AAAA. 2014 FOOTBALL SCHEDULES East Coweta INDIANS Aug. 29 Arabia Mountain Sept. 5 At Harrison Sept. 12 At Whitewater Sept. 26 Campbell* Oct. 3 At Westlake* Oct. 10 Hughes* Oct. 17 At Pebblebrook* Oct. 24 Douglas County* Oct. 31 Newnan* Nov. 7 At South Cobb* *Region 3-AAAAAA game Newnan Cougars Aug. 29 At Carrollton Sept. 5 Marietta Sept. 12 Sandy Creek Sept. 26 South Cobb* Oct. 3 At Douglas County* Oct. 10 Westlake* Oct. 17 At Campbell* Oct. 24 Pebblebrook* Oct. 31 At East Coweta* Nov. 7 At Hughes* * Region 3-AAAAAA game Northgate VIKINGS Aug. 29 Shaw Sept. 5 Troup Sept. 12 At Woodland* Sept. 19 Morrow* Sept. 26 At Mundy’s Mill (Twelve Oaks)* Oct. 3 McIntosh* Oct. 17 At Forest Park (Tara)* Oct. 24 Drew* Oct. 31 At Starr’s Mill* Nov. 7 Region Play-In Game* * Region 4-AAAAA Game Laura Burroughs, a former teacher and administrator in the Coweta County School System, recently fulfilled a lifelong dream and published her first book, “The Foxes of Caminus.” Former teacher fulfills dream, publishes book By Celia Shortt Laura Burroughs, a former teacher and administrator in the Coweta County School System, recently fulfilled a lifelong dream and published her first book, “The Foxes of Caminus.” It is described as an optimistic coming-of-age sci-fi story that draws the reader into an enchanting school where students learn that their thoughts can literally bring their talents into being and create their future. The book is the first in a planned trilogy. “ I h ave a lways wa nted to write,” said Burroughs. “When I was a baby, I would scribble on the page. When I was in first grade, I would write couplets all the time. As a child, I just liked words. I’ve been in love with them. They are an artistic form and a way to give back and inspire people.” Burroughs began her Coweta Cou nt y teach i ng career teaching Earth Science at Evans Middle School in the early 1990s. “I loved it,” she said. “Evans was my home for many, many years.” After teaching at Evans, she switched to Arnall Middle School, where she was assistant principal. She ended up returning to Evans after realizing her passion was for teaching, not administration. During her time there, Burroughs felt she was given the freedom to be an excellent teacher who could take her students as far as they could both go in their time there. Burroughs continued to work in the Coweta County School System until 2002, when she took a break for five years. She left permanently in 2008. “I felt stifled by the bureaucracy in education,” she said. “In the mid- two thousands, I was amazed at the flexibility teachers had to teach.” Even a fter she stopped teaching, Burroughs said she never lost her passion for kids. She channeled that passion burroughs, page 4A
