Program launched to combat trafficking New effort to put focus on convenience stores BY ISABEL HUGHES isabel.hughes@gwinnettdailypost.com

Cecilia Roberts never thought it would happen to her. “I was homeless and didn’t have anywhere to go, but a friend knew someone in the neighborhood who took in homeless women,” she said. “But he trafficked them. (While) I was never trafficked out of a convenience store, me and my pimp and his girlfriend would go there a lot, and convenience stores are easy places for trafficking because people are always in rush, so nobody is paying attention, or nobody cares. “You could be crying or you could look like you’re about to die, and all people want (to do) is get their gas and leave.” On Friday, Roberts told her story at the Georgia State Capitol as part of an announcement by various officials and anti-human/sex trafficking organizations See TRAFFICKING, Page 5A

Man gets two life sentences for armed robbery BY ISABEL HUGHES

isabel.hughes @gwinnettdailypost.com

A Lilburn man who posed as a police officer and robbed two men at gunpoint was recently

sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus five years, in addition to a re-sentencing of 21 years in prison, for the crimes. Tashod Kileaf Ford, 25, was convicted of

armed robbery, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony and financial transaction card fraud stemming from a Dec. 26, 2016 crime. According to the

ried and single — all there to pay their respects to Alvin Ahmed, a University Alvin of Georgia Ahmed graduate and pharmacy intern who died last month in a Loganville lake. Though the circumstances surrounding Ahmed’s death have left many puzzled — police ultimately ruled the man’s death a suicide, though it took weeks for them to identify Ahmed because of body decomposition — the focus on Friday was on life, and how fleeting it is. “No one has ever lived forever, as far as creation is concerned, and no one will ever live forever,” the Imam said. “We only get one chance, and every year that we add to our life, we can never go back. Every month that passes we can never get it back; every week that passes you can’t get back. Every second, every minute that is passing is another one that is gone. Think back on your life, how long does it seem?” For Ahmed’s family and friends, that time with the man was short — just 25 years. “There just aren’t enough words,” coworker Trey Hancock wrote online about Ahmed. “Alvin was kind and had an amazing sense of humor. We laughed throughout our shifts together, and I looked forward to going to work when I knew we were working together. I’ll always miss him and the fun times we had together.” Ahmed’s brother, Kalvin Ahmed, said he, too, did not have enough words to express the loss of his brother. “Five years ago, me and him were standing right here when my father passed away,” he said. “Never would I have thought I would be back here — it doesn’t make any sense.

in a bedroom along with one of the victim’s phone and credit cards and the other victim’s drivers license. Lilburn police also found Ford’s drivers license, mail addressed to him and court paperwork in the bedroom. They also conducted a Facebook search on Ford, where they learned he had been to Club Maison Elan in the past and found photos of him wearing the same “distinctive” American flag sweatshirt that was seen also in the Walmart surveillance video. The defense in the case asked for a speedy trial, given Ford was on active first offender probation for a 2011 burglary. A probation revocation evidentiary hearing was held in front of Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge Karen Beyers last week, where she found the 2016 armed robberies were a violation of Ford’s probation. She revoked his first offender status, re-sentenced him to 21 years in prison and another two consecutive life sentences plus 5 years. Prior to sentencing, Beyers told Ford that “this was a calculated, cold offense and it was mere seconds away from being a murder case,” the DA’s office said. She said that Ford “provides nothing useful to society” and had no regard for life.

Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office and evidence presented at trial, the victims, two men, had been at Club Maison Elan in Brookhaven on the evening of Dec. 25, where one of the men met an “unidentified female” at the club and planned to meet up with her sometime during the early morning hours of the 26th at an address she gave him in Lilburn. “That address turned out to be Bryson Park,” the DA’s office said. “(One of the victims) asked (the other victim) to exit the vehicle while he was with the female. After several minutes, (the other victim) was approached by a black male who stated he was a police officer and accused the group of participating in prostitution.” The man, who was later identified as Ford, ordered the victim to lie face down on the ground and he complied. The victim testified that Ford pressed what he thought was a gun to his back, which is why he complied with the orders. “However, the perpetrator was not a police officer,” the DA’s office said. “The victim said the perpetrator took his wallet, phone, and keys. (He) was able to run away when the fake cop approached (the other victim) and the female. (He) was unfamiliar with the area but ran until he found a gas station

... Never would I have thought I would be back here — it doesn’t make any sense. My brother was a strong, strong man who took the tragedy of my father, graduated early, finished pharmacy school and was on his way to success. But God is the best of all planners.” — Kalvin Ahmed, Alvin Ahmed’s brother

My brother was a strong, strong man who took the tragedy of my father, graduated early, finished pharmacy school and was on his way to success. But God is the best of all planners.” Kalvin said he and his brother were close — so close that the man understood everything about him. “Many of you who have a brother or sister or close siblings, many of you know what the relationship is between both of you,” Kalvin said. “How, no matter what you say, if nobody else understands, your brother or sister will always understand you. That was my brother. We understood everything with each other — we had the same thoughts, the same minds. But this — I don’t understand.” Though he said he doesn’t understand, Kalvin asked for prayer, to help his family, friends and their community heal. “I don’t understand the how, or the why, but I understand that all things happen under God, under Allah,” he said. “Please, make prayer for Alvin that he has a safe journey to the (afterlife) and pray for my mother, who has dealt with two tragedies so soon. Pray for our family and pray that we find guidance in what God has prescribed for us. Please pray for (Alvin), and take a lesson from all of this so that we can live better lives in this dunya, and have a better life in the next.”

Democrats have foreign espionage problem WASHINGTON — Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate intelligence committee had a Russian spy working on their senate staff. Think it would cause a political firestorm? Well, this week we learned that Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for 20 years, who was listed as an “office director” on payroll records and served as her driver when she was in San Francisco, all while reporting to Marc China’s Ministry of Thiessen State Security though China’s San Francisco Consulate. The reaction of the mainstream media? Barely a peep. Feinstein acknowledged the infiltration, but downplayed its significance. “Five years ago the FBI informed me it had concerns that an administrative member of my California staff was potentially being sought out by the Chinese government to provide information” Feinstein said in statement — which means the breach took place while Feinstein was heading the intelligence committee. But, Feinstein insisted, “he never had access to classified or sensitive information or legislative matters” and was immediately fired. In other words: junior staffer, no policy role, no access to secrets, quickly fired — no big deal. But it is a big deal. I asked several former senior intelligence and law enforcement officials how serious this breach might have been. “It’s plenty serious,” one former top Justice Department official told me. “Focusing on his driver function alone, in Mafia families, the boss’s driver was among the most trusted men in the crew, because among other things he heard everything that was discussed in the car.” A former top CIA clandestine officer explained to me what the agency would do if they had recruited the driver of a senior official like Feinstein. “We would have the driver record on his phone all conversations that Feinstein would have with passengers and phone calls in her car. If she left her phone, iPad or laptop in the car while she went to meetings, social events, dinners, etc., we would have the driver download all her devices. If the driver drove for her for 20 years he would probably would have had access to her office and homes. We would have had the source put down an audio device in her office or homes if the opportunity presented itself. Depending on the take from all of what the source reported, we would use the info to target others that were close to her and exhibited some type of vulnerability.” “In short,” this officer says, “we would have had a field day.” It seems improbable that Feinstein never once discussed anything sensitive in her car over a period of years. But let’s assume that Feinstein was extraordinarily careful and never discussed any classified information in front of her driver or on any devices to which he had access. Even so, one former top intelligence official told me, “someone in that position could give an adversary a whole bunch on atmospherics and trends and attitudes which are from time to time far more important than the things we call secrets.” He added “It’s like [having access to her] unclassified emails.” (And we all know no one ever exposes classified information on unclassified emails). Washington is understandably focused on the threat from Russia. But according to FBI director Chris Wray, “China from a counterintelligence perspective represents the broadest, most pervasive, most threatening challenge we face as a country.” It was China, after all, which hacked the Office of Personnel Management in 2015, stealing the SF-86 security clearance forms of many thousands of executive branch employees in the most devastating cyberattack in the history of our country. Beijing has successfully recruited FBI agents and State Department employees as spies, and has used information from U.S. informants to kill dozens of CIA sources inside the regime. And now, we know they recruited a high value senate staffer who worked in immediate proximity to the head of the senate intelligence committee. Feinstein owes the country a detailed explanation of how she let a Chinese spy into her inner sanctum. And the media should give this security breach the same attention they would if it involved Russia and the Republicans. Follow Marc A. Thiessen on Twitter, @ marcthiessen.

Letter to public school teachers Good grief, here we are slap-dab in the middle of the dog days of summer and you are already back in the classroom. I remember as a child that my family didn’t even take vacation until August because school didn’t start until after Labor Day. When we started really didn’t seem to matter because before we wound things up around Memorial Day, I had gotten a head full of English, Math, History, Biology and Geography and a jolly good education — and all in a public school. I don’t think public education has gotten worse since those days. It is society that has changed. The problem is that society has gone to hell in a wheelbarrow and nobody seems to know how to make it right again. So, the easy solution is to blame you for something over which you have no control. Critics of public education think you can close the schoolhouse door on all of society’s problems and effectively teach multiplication tables to a hungry child who doesn’t know where his or her next meal is coming from. You are dealing with entitled kids. You are dealing with children who can’t speak English. Gang members are as young as 12. You are dealing with abject poverty, abuse,

Dick Yarbrough drugs and transiency. And as much as I hate to say it, the possibility of violence. So what do our intrepid public servants do? Rather than fix the problems that surround you and make your job so difficult, they propose to cut-and-run from public schools on the state’s dime and send kids to private schools that have a different set of rules and can always send them back to public schools. It is a no-win situation for you. I cannot think of a more egregious insult to you than the admission by Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle that he engineered a bill to raise to $100 million, the amount of money available for private school scholarships, while acknowledging it was “bad in a thousand ways” so his opponent in the Republican primary, former state Sen. Hunter Hill — a private school advocate — would not be the beneficiary of a dump of money

from the Walmart Foundation which cares little for you or what you do. Of course, the Kool-Aid drinking ideologues are busy defending this bad piece of legislation. They can’t wait until public schools are the “schools of last resort,” meaning you will be left with only the dregs and they can applaud their self-fulfilling prophecy. This bunch has just about sucked all the joy out of the profession with their criticisms (as if they care) and have tried to make it as unattractive as possible for those thinking of becoming teachers. The Georgia Professional Standard Commission says half of Georgia’s schoolteachers leave the profession within the first five years because of the way they are treated. Perhaps some need to go. Most do not. Sometimes, the enemy is within. Education bureaucrats will change your jobs and your responsibilities without giving you an opportunity for input. You are told to teach to the test instead of being trusted to teach what you know. And how you are evaluated can be as different as the sun from the moon. I had great hopes that Gov. Deal’s Education Reform Commission, of which I was a member, would address some of the issues that you face with the same effectiveness as his

criminal justice reform efforts. Alas, it was not to be. Nothing came from our yearlong labor for reasons that have never been adequately explained. Very disappointing. While I sometimes feel like a voice in the wilderness, immodesty requires me to say I have a pretty good-sized wilderness in which to work. My opinions run from one end of the state to the other and reach a lot of eyeballs each week. I will continue to use my bully pulpit to support you and to remind your critics in the Legislature and their deep-pocketed, out-of-state special interest friends that they wouldn’t last a week in your classroom, given what you have to deal with. Call it a public service. Despite all the aforementioned obstacles, frustrations and second-guessing, you soldier on, changing young lives for the better every day and in doing so, helping to make this a better world for us all. Yours is a noble calling and don’t let anyone tell you differently. Welcome back, schoolteachers, and thank you. I am glad you are there.

Pompeo tries to be the disruptor’s diplomat WASHINGTON — When Mike Pompeo became secretary of state on May 1, he advised his new colleagues at Foggy Bottom: “I want the State Department to get its swagger back.” State doesn’t really do “swagger,” but career officials say morale has improved from the rock bottom level it reached with his predecessor, Rex Tillerson. Pompeo, a boisterous ex-congressman, seems to be keeping his own swagger tendencies in check at State. His watchword so far has mostly been a version of “Keep your mouth shut.” Many secretaries of state say they want to practice quiet diplomacy, and that was certainly Tillerson’s goal. But Pompeo has made it an operating principle. Pompeo is behaving at State much as he did as CIA director. His role is often that of a secret presidential envoy; he manages the North Korean denuclearization talks, the administration’s most sensitive file, pretty much out of his briefcase. And, perhaps most important, he’s able to speak authoritatively (mostly in private) for the president, something that Tillerson could never do. The abrasive ideological edge that brought Pompeo to the House of Representatives as a “Tea Party” Republican in 2010 is still there; it surfaced visibly in his prickly answers at a Senate hearing last month. But at State, as at CIA, Pompeo

David Ignatius has surprised some observers by championing career officers who were initially skeptical of him. Discerning Pompeo’s strategy is hard because of his reticence, but you can see the outlines in his public comments. Let’s start with the State Department itself. Pompeo said from his first day that he wanted to bolster a demoralized foreign service, and he sought advice from a wide circle of former State officials, including some who had been very critical of Trump. Where Tillerson had left key positions unfilled, Pompeo has used his clout with the White House and Congress to clear appointments. More than a dozen major posts are likely to be confirmed next week, perhaps including four high-level “career ambassadors.” Pompeo’s choice of David Hale as undersecretary for political affairs, traditionally the top foreign service job, is telling. Hale is a classic old-school diplomat. As ambassador to Lebanon and Pakistan, he deftly

managed two of America’s most sensitive accounts. His presence will encourage U.S. and foreign diplomats alike. North Korea is Pompeo’s hardest test. As CIA director, he was Trump’s secret channel to Kim Jong Un; now he has the complex job of translating Trump’s ebullient Singapore summitry into a verifiable denuclearization plan. To understand his approach, it’s worth paying close attention to his brief remarks last week in Asia. Pompeo signaled, notably, that he endorses Kim’s desire for a gradual, phased process of denuclearization, linked with a broader de-escalation of tensions. He said in an Aug. 3 television interview in Singapore that “we are engaged in things that will improve the trust between our two countries” and that “the ultimate timeline for denuclearization will be set by Chairman Kim, at least in part.” Asked on Aug. 5 by a U.S. journalist whether, under a “phased approach,” some reciprocal concessions “are possible before the end,” Pompeo answered: “Yeah. That’s right.” Not exactly a roadmap, but that’s Pompeo. Even as Pompeo signals his readiness for a step-by-step process, he is insisting that U.N. sanctions “will remain in place until we have full denuclearization in North Korea,” as he put it last week in Singapore. Pompeo’s fear, presumably, is that premature removal of sanctions

would allow North Korea to wiggle out of denuclearization, as it has in past negotiations. South Korean officials have tried to reassure Pyongyang by promising a formal declaration ending the Korean War by the end of this year. This declaration might encourage reciprocal concessions from Kim, but it could also undermine the rationale for continued U.N. sanctions. Pompeo remains mum on whether he’s willing to play this card. Pompeo’s other big headache is Iran. And despite President Trump’s proclamation that he was ready for talks with Iranian leaders, Pompeo continues to voice a skeptical hard line. He told reporters on Aug. 5 that any progress in the relationship will “require enormous change on the part of the Iranian regime,” but that “there’s no evidence to date of their desire to change.” Prepare for a long, slow squeeze. Being chief diplomat for the most undiplomatic president in modern history can’t be easy. The process broke Tillerson. But, so far, Pompeo has managed to reassure the State Department without enraging the man in the Oval Office. Maybe because he shares Trump’s “big guy” persona, Pompeo has been the rare subordinate who stays close to the president, but not so close he gets burned.

Multiple doses needed for measles vaccination Dear Dr. rOaCH: My daughter is 4 years old and has, in the past five days, developed measles. She was vaccinated at 9 months and has been treated with antibiotics, Tylenol and vitamin A supplements. What concerns me is that she is now experiencing seizures, even without a fever. They are not grand mal seizures, but simple ones. They have me worried. What can I do? — G.A. anSWer: Measles remains a serious disease in many parts of the world, with 90,000 deaths reported in 2016. Even in industrialized nations, there have been outbreaks involving tens of thousands of people infected. Vitamin A supplementation may be of value in those who are deficient, and Tylenol can help keep the fever down, reducing the risk of febrile seizures. The antiviral drug ribavirin sometimes is used, though without clear evidence of effectiveness. Otherwise, there are no effective antibiotics or other treatments for measles. When seizures occur in a child with measles in absence of fever, it can indicate a complication called encephalitis — inflammation of the brain. Children also may experience nausea and vomiting, and they usually have a headache. Confusion and sleepiness are other common symptoms. The diagnosis can be confirmed by an evaluation of the fluid around the brain, the cerebrospinal fluid, which is sampled via a needle inserted into the lower back. Confirmed encephalitis with measles is treated with steroids. This reduces the risk of permanent brain damage from the infection. Even so, 25 percent of children may be left with some impairment, including epilepsy. Unfortunately, vaccination at 9 months is not adequate protection. Children’s immune systems may not be able to fully respond to the vaccine so early. Children are recommended to have the measles vaccine at 12 to 15 months and again at 4 to 6 years in the United States. In countries where risk of measles mortality remains high, children are vaccinated at 9 months, then again at 15 to 18 months. During an outbreak, a dose may be given as early as 6 months old, in addition to the other two doses. Dear Dr. rOaCH: I recently was diagnosed with kidney disease and was advised to drink eight glasses of water daily. I can only get down three glasses. Is it OK to drink tea instead? Would vitamins help? — E.K. anSWer: From the standpoint of your kidneys, tea and coffee count as water. Having adequate fluid intake is important for your kidneys, but most people who aren’t exercising or living in hot or dry environments don’t need eight full glasses a day. Vitamins are not necessary for kidney health; however, people with very advanced kidney disease often need a special form of vitamin D called calcitriol.

Leftovers pilfered from baby shower Dear amy: I recently helped my sister give a baby shower for her daughter-in-law, “Linda.” Linda’s mother and sister were on the invitation as co-hosts. The shower was at my sister’s house, and she provided the food (about 10 platters), decorations, flowers, etc. Linda’s mother brought one food item for about 12 people, but she knew we were expecting at least 20. Linda’s sister brought the cake. At the end of the shower, we were busy with guests and carrying all the gifts to the car. Linda’s mother and sister put away the food. After my sister and I washed all the dishes, cleaned and rearranged the house, we decided to have some of the leftover food. Amy, we couldn’t find anything: no fruit, no cookies, no cake, nothing! Linda’s mother had taken all the food home! After speaking with another daughter, she told us that she doesn’t invite this woman to any more gatherings because this is what she does! Have you ever heard of anything so rude? I am afraid of what I will say if I am in her presence again. By the way, she is wealthy and owns two homes. The final insult was when the sister posted pictures of the shower on Facebook and did not even mention my sister! What can I say to these boorish

We’re teaching them trades. We’re teaching them different things that they can put into good use, and put into use to get jobs.”

Trafficking •From Page 1A about a new program to combat trafficking across metro Atlanta and the state, specifically in convenience stores and gas stations. The program, Convenience Stores Against Trafficking, is a partnership between the Georgia Association of Convenience Stores and the nonprofit In Our Backyard, and is intended to teach convenience store employees how to identify signs of human trafficking while adding helpline information for victims in the stores and public bathrooms. Other agencies and people working with the Georgia CSAT program include District 104 state Rep. Chuck Efstration R-Dacula, the International Human Trafficking Institute, Clipper Petroleum, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Wellspring Living and others. Though human trafficking occurs every day throughout Georgia, events such as the Super Bowl, which is being held in Atlanta in less than six months, attract significantly more buyers and sellers to the area, which is why a program such as CSAT is so important now, organizers said. “Georgia is the seventhranked state in the nation for human trafficking cases and Atlanta is a major hub for human trafficking largely because our state’s capital city is home to the world’s busiest airport,” Efstration said. “The Super Bowl will be held in Atlanta next year, and I’m thrilled that the CSAT program will soon launch in Georgia in an effort to combat this horrific epidemic leading up to such an international event.” Roberts said traffickers “look forward” to events

like the Super Bowl. “During events such as the Super Bowl, our pimps would get us prepared, because they knew a lot of people — judges, lawyers, doctors, all types of people — (were coming) and that’s where the money’s at,” Roberts said. “They would really look forward to events like this.” In Our Backyard Founder and Executive Director Nita Belles said her organization has been working with law enforcement and others to combat trafficking during for the last nine Super Bowls and has implemented CSAT in 29 states, most recently in Georgia. The program is being implemented in the state prior to February’s Super Bowl, Belles said convenience stores can, and should, play a role daily in stopping trafficking. “Trafficking doesn’t just happen around the Super Bowl,” Belles said. “Human trafficking happens 365 days a year in every ZIP code of this great country. One in three runaways

will be lured toward sex trafficking within 48 hours of the time they run away, which is why we (do this).” But, with so many people flocking into Atlanta early next year for the Super Bowl, Belles said the time to implement CSAT is now. “Traffickers only ask one thing of us, just one thing,” she said. “All they need from us is that we be quiet. (But) we will not be quiet. We can’t legislate our way out of this problem; we can’t make enough laws to make it go away. We can’t arrest our way out of this problem — we can’t make enough arrests to make it stop. “We’ve got to change our culture and we’ve got to make it not OK to buy children, to buy adults, to buy sex online or in person. We’ve got to stop the mentality that this kind of purchase of another human being is OK, ever.” Roberts said that’s exactly why she tells her story — to change people’s mentality about trafficking, and to encourage victims to

ask for help. “Doing the right thing is always the hardest, but if (we don’t), it can be anybody’s kids,” she said. “I do this because it’s my story and I want people to be able to learn from it. I want a parent to learn about (trafficking) so they can do something to save their children. I’m speaking for the girls who can’t speak, and I know what’s going on, because as survivors we trust each other. We don’t betray each other because we were the ones that were betrayed. “Somebody has to step up and stop living in fear, because living in fear is what got this kind of thing so escalated.” The CSAT program will officially launch Nov. 15 at the Southern Convenience Store and Petroleum Show in Macon with a training seminar for convenience retailers focusing on how to identify signs of human trafficking and proper reporting procedures.

and avid runners. Both the 10K and 5K route took runners along Sugarloaf Parkway, Satellite Boulevard and Meadow Church Road. “A lot of us don’t really run and use this event as the one 5K we do during the year,” said Robin Sansone, an employee at Rhodes Young Black and Duncan. The race has become a date on company calendars each year with companies flocking to the event. “It’s fun and a great community celebration,” Chamber president Dan Kaufman said. “Lots of organizations make it a team building exercise by coming out and running the race as a team.” Kaufman said the largest team this year was Pak-Lite with 162 people registered. Last year the custom foam manufacturer had 145 people register.

Kaufman said the time it takes for careful planning and set up for the event is worth it. “The Chamber staff is committed to this event, in fact we were out here at 5 (a.m.) this morning,” Kaufman said. “It’s a labor of love to put on a high quality race for a thousand runner.” Proceeds from the event benefit The Primerica Foundation, a non-profit that supports community causes contributing to self-sufficiency for low- to moderate-income families and individuals. Kaufman was in the pace car giving him an opportunity to see his favorite part of the event up close — the start. “There’s so much energy and enthusiasm in both the 10K and 5K,” Kaufman said. “It’s nice to see people out here enjoying each other and celebrating all this great community has to offer.

Developer seeking spot near planned Woman killed I-85 interchange for 119 townhomes during possible domestic dispute BY CURT YEOMANS

curt.yeomans @gwinnettdailypost.com

A developer is asking for county approval to build 119 single-family townhomes near the site of a new Interstate 85 interchange that Gwinnett County and state transportation officials plan to build in the Buford area. Gwinnett County documents show AAD Development LLC wants to build the townhome community called Morgan Landing on Morgan Road, near its intersection with Gravel Springs Road. It is the

last intersection on Gravel Springs before crossing over I-85, and work to install a new interchange at that crossing is expected to begin near the end of the year. “Residents of the proposed development would have convenient access to Interstate 85, Gravel Springs Road (State Route 324) and Braselton Highway (State Route 124) as well as nearby schools, commercial developments and community uses,” AAD Developments attorney Shane Lanham wrote in a letter to county officials. AAD Developments is

asking county leaders to rezone the property from a general business commercial district to a townhome residential district. The request has been included in the packet of items currently slated to go before the Gwinnett County Planning Commission in September. The 18.61-acre site is bisected by Morgan Road and next to the Morgan Commons and Townhomes at Morgan Commons residential communities. Lanham said the townhomes would have at least 1,750 square feet of space and have covered entrances and two-car garages. There

are 5.5 acres, or about 30 percent of the property, that are intended to be set aside as common areas, including a pocket park and other areas intended to be used by residents of the townhome community, according to Lanham’s letter. “The property is adjacent to existing an townhome development and would provide an appropriate transitional use from Interstate 85 and Gravel Springs Road moving easterly towards lower-density single-family residential development along Braselton Highway,” Lanham said.

Boutique hotel proposed near Sugarloaf Mills BY CURT YEOMANS

curt.yeomans @gwinnettdailypost.com

A new boutique hotel is being pitched for the Sugarloaf Mills area in unincorporated Lawrenceville. Gwinnett County documents show Sugarloaf Hotel Group LLC wants to build a five-story Aloft Hotels location on a coneshaped piece of property along the shopping destination’s Ring Road, next to a similar hotel that is already under construction. The change in conditions request is slated to be heard by the county’s Planning Commission in September. “The applicant submits that a luxury boutique hotel use is appropriate on the property given its proximity to the interstate and the fact that it is adjacent to a large shopping mall,” Sugarloaf Hotel Group attorney Shane Lanham said in a letter to county officials. The hotel is projected

to be 72 feet tall with about 110 hotel rooms, and it would be located on the 2100 block of North Brown Road, sandwiched in between that road, Cash Back Bonus Boulevard and Ring Road. Developers building a Tru Hotel by Hilton on the opposite side of Cash Back Bonus Boulevard broke ground on that boutique hotel late last year. Amenities listen on Aloft Hotels’ website include a bar with space for live acoustic music performances, a 24-hour snack shop and guest rooms that feature keyless entry systems that can be accessed by smartphones and Apple Watches, 9-foot tall ceilings, plush platform beds, free WiFi, 42-inch LCD televisions and walk-in showers with rainfall shower heads. Locations also offer robots, called Botlr, that can bring items such as toiletries or towels to guests by request through a smartphone application.

Netherworld Haunted House to open at new spot in October BY CURT YEOMANS curt.yeomans @gwinnettdailypost.com

East Business Center, across West Park Place Boulevard from SpaceMax Storage Stone Mountain, and Netherworld owners said that will allow them to have more space for guests to park. The property Netherworld sits on itself is larger and offers more space for parking than the previous location had, the owners said. They also announced SpaceMax has agreed to let the haunted house’s customers park in its parking lot as well during the haunt season. “We know it’ll be a bit further for some and a bit closer for others ... but either way, we do hope you’ll come see what we’ve created,” Netherworld officials said on Facebook. “We’re still in south Gwinnett County, just one exit past (or before depending on what direction you come from) the Main Entrance of Stone Mountain Park on (U.S. Highway) 78.”

Halloween is less than three months away and that means Netherworld Haunted House is getting closer to starting up a new haunt season. Netherworld announced through Facebook on Friday that this year’s haunted house will open Oct. 5 at its new location at 2076 West Park Place Blvd. near Stone Mountain. This year will mark the first time that the popular haunted house, which moved from its longtime Norcross home last year, has offered up fall scares since the move into a larger space. “Since we were in our previous location for so long, this has taken some getting used to, even for us Spawn … but we love our new digs and think you will too,” Netherworld officials said in the Facebook post. This year’s haunted

house theme is called “The Awakened,” and it features mummies that have a third eye in their foreheads and who are terrorizing a haunted town that guests will explore as they go through the site. Netherworld is also hiring workers for this year’s haunt season. The attraction has posted information at http:// fearworld.com/wordpress/ employment-opportunities for people who are interested in working as actors, monsters, game masters, gift shop or ticket booth employees, operations and costuming and make-up artists. Netherworld’s owners have been turning it into a year-round operation so that — while the haunted house will still only be offered in the fall — horrorthemed escape games and a monster museum are available from January to December. The haunted attraction is located in the Mountain

GRAYSON

OWEN PAPPOE

SR.

Grayson’s Pappoe lives up to high expectations By Will Hammock Owen Pappoe was not only new to football recruiting, he was new to the sport itself when he began fielding major college interest as a middle-schooler. Boston College offered him a scholarship as an eighth-grader. Auburn was next, then Georgia. It would have been overwhelming for most youngsters, but the freakish athlete — as his Twitter @ OPfreak15 handle suggests — didn’t grasp how special those offers were at first. “I thought that was normal (to get offers as an eighth-grader),” said a laughing Pappoe, now a Grayson senior and one of the nation’s top linebackers. “I really did.” As news of his offers spread, so did the interest from college football fans, journalists and others. He still didn’t know much about football, so he made it a point to learn quickly. “That’s just my second year playing football (when they offered), so I didn’t really know how serious it was,” Pappoe said. “So I’m just taking it in one day at a time. I didn’t really think much of it. The more I matured, I started thinking it’s time for me to start taking this stuff seriously, I can do something with this (sport).” He has done just that. Pappoe quickly soared to the top of national college prospect lists as a high school freshman, then occupied his spot in the rankings from there. The Auburn commitment is a fivestar recruit in the 247Sports composite rankings, which have him as the No. 1 outside linebacker in the nation and the No. 11 player overall. He is ESPN’s No. 6 player nationally in the Class of 2019, as well as its No. 1 linebacker and No. 1 player in Georgia. Despite the constant attention that goes with those lofty rankings — that he has dealt with since middle school — Pappoe has stayed grounded, Grayson head coach Christian Hunnicutt said. “Unbelievable work ethic,” Hunnicutt said. “Between the Darius Walkers, the Vadal Alexanders, all those great players I was around (in a long tenure at powerhouse Buford), and they had a great work ethic, I’ve never been around a player who’s received more attention, more accolades, whatever the

case may be, and who day in, day out, can grind it out. It’s not his athleticism — it’s his work ethic. I’d say the other thing that stands out about Owen is that he is mentally and emotionally an old man. His maturity and being able to live in a fish bowl in his teenage years is impressive. “He never gets in trouble. He’s always aware of what he says. He measures his words and he understands that he is constantly evaluated. And he’s always been unbelievably mature in every dealing he has with people. He understands he’s always being watched. Everything he does is first class. He carries himself with so much class. He handles his business the right way day in, day out. He’s still a guy that says ‘Yes, sir, no, sir.’ He’s still the kid that picks up trash if he walks by it in the fieldhouse. You can look at his locker. He never has to do any conditioning because his locker isn’t messed up. “Owen has not changed. He hasn’t changed. He’s funny. He talks to you. He’s mature. He’s smart. His mental and emotional age is a lot different than his chronological age.” The speedy linebacker didn’t give football much thought until he began playing as a 13-year-old, at the urging of local coach Kenyatta Watson Sr. and his son, Kenyatta II, a good friend of Pappoe’s. Watson coached a prominent youth team and took notice of Pappoe’s talents on the basketball court. “I grew up in a house that was just basketball,” Pappoe said. “I didn’t even know any football players’ names, really. … So I played basketball. Every year at my school, in March, how they’ve got March Madness in college, we would run three-on-three tournaments at the school. I was like the best person on my team so I carried us all the

way to the championship. One of my teammates, Kenyatta Watson, he played in the tournament but he lost earlier on and he just stayed to watch the championship game I was playing in. His dad actually came to pick him up and his dad was the owner of the Gwinnett Chargers youth league team. So he went up to (Kenyatta II), ‘Why y’all got this eighth-grader playing with y’all?’ Because I was so much bigger than everybody else. He was like, ‘No, that’s Owen.’ After the whole tournament, we changed numbers and he talked to my dad and that’s how things got rolling.” The youth coaches initially tried Pappoe at running back, then discovered he was a better fit on defense. “At my first practice at running back, I was running through high and they said, ‘No, he’ll get hurt playing running back,’” Pappoe said. “They put me at defensive end and told me to go get the quarterback.” He shifted to his permanent home, linebacker, in eighth grade. “It just makes me use my athletic ability to the fullest,” he said of linebacker. “I can run sideline to sideline as fast as I can, hit people, run through people, catch interceptions, touchdowns, all that. It’s the best position on defense in my opinion.” The coaches at both Auburn and Georgia, Pappoe’s second choice and presumed favorite by many, loved those skills at linebacker. The two rivals emerged as his favorites when he pared his long list of offers down, then committed to Auburn in early May. Given how early Pappoe racked up big-time offers, it was a lengthy recruiting process that gave him years to think about his future home. When he gave his word to Auburn, it was a carefully thought out decision, which doesn’t surprise his coach. Pappoe called choosing Auburn a “family decision,” adding he was comfortable at both places, but more comfortable with Auburn. A big part of that was his relationship with the Tigers’ area recruiter Travis “T-Will” Williams, who is also their linebackers coach. “That’s the realest coach in See PAPPOE, Page 11A

Pappoe

college football, period,” Pappoe said of Williams. “I can relate to him on so many different levels. I was just texting him earlier today. We talk pretty much every day, either calling or texting. He just makes sure he’s always there for me. I know that’s a guy I can trust.” Despite the Auburn commitment, recruiting isn’t over for Pappoe. It will continue into December, when high school seniors can sign with college football programs. That said, college football isn’t the top priority now for Pappoe and his teammates on a loaded Grayson team with state championship aspirations. The Rams had similar goals last season, but didn’t live up to them in the regular season or the postseason. A 6-3 loss to rival Archer last year cost them the region title, then they were eliminated in the second round of the state playoffs by eventual champion North Gwinnett. “It was (disappoint-

ing),” Pappoe said of the 2017 season. “We took an early exit (in the playoffs). I think that’s the best thing that could have happened to us, my class. Back in eighth grade, we lost the championship to North Gwinnett. It’s just building that fire even more and more inside of us. We’ve got to make it this year. No other choice.” The Grayson coaches expect their talented senior class to guide the way. Pappoe is at the forefront of that group, with both his leadership and his play. “He’s athletic. He’s a difference-maker defensively. Whatever you ask him to do, he can do,” Hunnicutt said. “From what my understanding is, at the next level and at the NFL level, it goes back to the intangible qualities you have because everybody has those measurables. Everybody can do those things. What separates you, from what I’ve gathered talking to people, are those intangible qualities. And Owen has those intangibles.”

tough getting injured when I did, when things for the team were going in the right direction. I felt like if we had been healthy, we could have made a good run. But I really enjoyed it — and that factored into my decision, too.” Last year was his first season in the ECHL. The fifth-round pick of the Dallas Stars was under his three-year entry-level deal prior to that and played 119 games in the AHL, primarily with Texas, the team that lured Pyle away in 2011. “I had a successful season last year and my agent said we had options to explore,” Troock said. “I decided I wanted to stay in North America. Jeff and Nessie were a lot of the reason I wanted to stay. What we talked about all lined up with what I had in mind.” One point of interest is certainly Pyle’s wildly prolific power play. Troock already was developing some good chemistry with Nesbitt and Ben Danford at the end of last year. Putting them in Pyle’s system should only amplify it.

“Size, speed, great shot, hockey sense and skill,” Pyle said. “He has all the tools to have another great season. He will be an integral part of this team’s success and it’s my mission to get the most out of him to take his game to new heights.” Before turning pro at the start of the 2014-15 season, Troock posted 101 points in 144 Western Hockey League games for the Seattle Thunderbirds. His most productive season was his last when Troock racked up 58 points in 58 games in 2013-14. “Last year was only the tip of the iceberg for us as a team,” Troock said. “With our core group returning, I see us doing something special this season. “I’m a firm believer that team success leads to individual gain, not the other way around. We have the right pieces and good character guys in the locker room to continue to build a positive and winning environment which will lead to wins and, therefore, personal success.”

Ethics probe sought over runoff race Norcross to run BY CURT YEOMANS

curt.yeomans@gwinnettdailypost.com

A Lawrenceville Republican activist wants the State Ethics Commission to look into a group, possibly based out of Gwinnett County, that she says swayed the GOP’s lieutenant governor runoff race in former state Rep. Geoff Duncan’s favor. Conservatives for Energy Freedom and Green Tea Coalition President Debbie Dooley filed the complaint with the State Ethics Commission against Georgia Swamp Drainers and five unidentified people referred to as “John Does 1-5” on Thursday. Dooley supported Duncan’s opponent, state Sen. David Shafer, R-Duluth, in the runoff. Dooley is claiming the group, which she said was behind a “Trump Supporter Voter Guide” mailer that encouraged Republicans voters to support Duncan in the runoff, violated Georgia’s election code with mailers it sent out. “Swamp is an illegal ‘dark money’ operation undertaken to affect the outcome of Georgia elections in flagrant violation of Georgia law,” Dooley wrote in her complaint. The filing of the complaint came more than two weeks after the July 24 runoff, in which Duncan narrowly defeated Shafer for GOP’s lieutenant governor nomination, getting 50.1 percent of the votes cast. The tightness of the results of that runoff puts the former legislator in a position of having to reunite the party and getting Shafer’s supporters to back his candidacy for the No. 2 office in state government. In her complaint, Dooley targets Georgia Swamp Drainers rather than Duncan directly — although

This “Trump Supporter Voter Guide” is one of the flyers at the heart of an ethics complaint Lawrencevillebased GOP activist Debbie Dooley filed against Georgia Swamp Drainers this week. (Special Photo)

the complaint does offer a cascading series of postulations that if one violation occurred, then another may have also happened, ultimately leading back to Duncan. The group has not registered itself with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission and, therefore, there are no exact public records showing how much the group has raised or spent. There is only speculation. “From the mailers paid for by Swamp, it is apparent that more than $25,000 was expended by Swamp advocating for the election and defeat of candidates and that potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars were expended for this purpose,” Dooley said in the complaint. But while Dooley is not directly accusing Duncan of doing anything wrong, she did imply in her com-

plaint that he might know who was involved with the group. She said the return address on the “Trump Supporter Voter Guide” mailer was sent from a Norcross-area address that was a few doors down from a company to whom Duncan serves as a consultant. Duncan’s campaign denied any knowledge of the group’s membership. “We have no clue who the group is … and I think the sense among folks in the campaign was that they were not particularly helpful, whoever they are,” campaign spokesman Dan McLagan said. “We’re focused on the Democrats and the general election.” The flyer also encouraged Donald Trump supporters to back Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle in the gubernatorial race, even though Trump publicly endorsed Secretary of State Brian Kemp in that runoff race. The president had stayed quiet on the lieutenant governor’s race though. Dooley said other campaign mailers were sent from an address in a Kroger shopping center on Buford Drive in Lawrenceville. Since two return addresses from Gwinnett were used on mailers sent out by the group, Dooley wants the ethics commission to refer the case to Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter for investigation and prosecution. “There is an imminent danger that if Swamp is not immediately exposed, restrained and punished, its illegal actives (sic) may continue during the general election,” Dooley said. “There is also imminent danger that others may be encouraged by the success of Swamp to undertake illegal ‘dark money’ campaigns if the commission fails to immediately expose, restrain and punish Swamp.”

Less than two years after major surgery, Suwanee teen participates in Rockettes Summer Intensive

F

BY ISABEL HUGHES • isabel.hughes@gwinnettdailypost.com

or as long as she can remember, 16-yearold Charlotte Mann has wanted to be a Radio City Music Hall Rockette. “When she was younger, we took her on a backstage tour of The Rockettes when we were in New York,” said Charlotte’s mother, Claire Mann. “She loved it so much that becoming (a Rockette) has been the goal of hers since she was 6 years old.” This summer, the Suwanee teen, who has been dancing since she was 3, got a taste of what life as a Rockette would be like after being invited to the dance company’s Rockettes Summer Intensive, a weeklong opportunity for dancers from across the country to train with the Rockettes in New York City. While it’s a feat in and of itself to be chosen for the intensive, Charlotte did it less than two years after having major surgery on her femur to remove an extra bone growth that was tearing part of her hip cartilage — a surgery that took nearly nine months to recover from. “When I was in eighth grade, I started to recognize that there was a serious problem,” Charlotte said. “It wasn’t just (regular) soreness; I realized, ‘There is something in my body that is not letting me do normal things that other (dancers) could do easily.’” Charlotte’s dance teacher also noticed the girl’s struggle, but chalked it up to the teen not stretching enough. “Her teacher approached me and said, ‘Charlotte’s not

able to do certain things; she needs to stretch more,’” Claire said. “So she started doing all this stretching, but it wasn’t helping, so we went to physical therapy. Everything we and (physical therapist) Liz Chesarek tried to do wasn’t helping, so (Chesarek) said Charlotte needed to go see Dr. Tim Schrader with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. There, we found out no amount of stretching would help, because it wasn’t a muscular problem.” The problem, Schrader found, was an extra bone growth on the top of one of Charlotte’s femurs, which was tearing her labrum — the ring of cartilage that surrounds the outside rim of a person’s hip joint socket — every time she moved. While there are “plenty of people walking around” with the condition who do not undergo surgery, they aren’t “kicking their legs over their heads on a daily basis” when dancing, Claire said, which made surgery Charlotte’s only option. “It was the only option if I wanted to continue to dance,” Charlotte said. “As soon as the doctor explained that, we just decided to do it and I didn’t have to think about it much. I’ve been dancing for so long that it’s been ingrained into who I am and it’s a way for me to get out of myself. Every time I dance I discover something new about myself and there’s nothing else like it, so surgery was a (no-brainer).”

North Gwinnett High School junior Charlotte Mann participated in the Rockettes Summer Intensive dance program in July, less than two years after having major surgery on her femur.

Claire said the family also quickly agreed, and the surgery was scheduled for December 2016, her freshman year. “Charlotte feels more at home on the stage than anywhere else,” Claire said. “The first time I saw her on stage was at 3 years old and most kids were staring at their parents and waving, but she was so focused. I remember getting tears in my eyes because at that age, she had already found her joy, and still, to this day, she dances everywhere she goes. It is who she is.” Surgical recovery was difficult, Charlotte said, and involved six weeks

of crutches, another several weeks of a brace that limited much of her movement and then daily exercises that were “kind of like having homework.” “It was nine months of no dance, and it was pretty hard the first few months,” she said. “I started back (dancing) the July after the surgery and had to play catch-up big time with strength. I realized I was behind and really worked to rebuild that strength.” By November, less than a year after her surgery, Charlotte was almost back to her normal self, something that surprised her physical therapist. “Liz was Charlotte’s tap teacher when she was younger but later went into physical therapy, so she was Charlotte’s physical therapist,” Claire said. “She came to a show in November and turned to me and said, ‘Charlotte’s leg is touching her ear; is she OK, is she in any pain?’ I said ‘No’ and she couldn’t believe it — she said it was a great (recovery).” Though Charlotte said she still works on her strength, she is healed enough that the Rockettes’ intensive, while not easy, was an “amazing” experience. “I have to work a

little harder to keep up my strength, but I’m willing to do that,” she said. “The intensive was amazing. It was six days of dancing from 9 to 5 where we learned actual Rockettes choreography and then had a performance at the end. It was just so cool to rehearse and live the lives they live for a week.” While Charlotte said she still would love to be a Rockette a little later in life — she’s currently a junior at North Gwinnett High School — her surgery has also made her want to be a nurse. “I just loved the nurses I had, then I took chemistry as a sophomore and fell in love,” she said. “So that’s what I want to go to college for: nursing with a minor in dancing.” Claire credits Children’s Hospital of Atlanta for that sentiment. “I think the nurses there really planted those seeds because she was specific enough to say, ‘I want to be pre-surgical nurse,’ because they worked so much to calm her nerves before the surgery,” Claire said. “One thing she said in New York (this summer) though was, ‘The Rockettes only perform three months out of the year — I could be a traveling nurse for the other nine.’ She had it down what she was going to do.”

GSMST student holds own chess camp Since the age of 6, Gautam Desai has been a student of the game of chess, playing, winning and participating in tournaments. A decade later, the Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology junior is teaching kids how to play with his very own camp. “My parents encouraged me to play when I was younger because chess would help me think, improve my critical thinking skills and solve problems,” Desai said. “Now that I’m older, I see that lots of kids play violent video games that aren’t the best use of their time.” His solution to the problem was teaching elementary- and middle school-aged children the game of chess to take time away from video games. “Chess will help them do better in school and develop

To ensure that children stayed focused, Desai created a structure that involved puzzles and brain teaser

and to start this,” he said. “Because of them I wanted to make this a nonprofit and give back to the community.” The cost for the camp was $100 if campers registered prior to June 30 and $110 if they registered afterward. The two organizations that Desai is presenting a check to is Rainbow Village in Duluth as well as Save the Children and 21st Century Leaders. “All the profits are being donated to local as well as bigger charities,” Desai said. “I want to make an impact in my community as well as abroad.” Desai plans on holding more camps with the next one taking place during winter break at his former elementary school Chattahoochee Elementary in December. For more information, visit www.kidsforchess.org Gwinnett students receive awards for entrepreneur competition Three Gwinnett County Public Schools students were announced the top

three winners in Partnership Gwinnett’s inaugural Amazing Student Entrepreneur competition. The Amazing Student Entrepreneur competition encourages young entrepreneurs in high school and college to introduce a practical business model that is created, owned and managed by students only. The competition requires contestants to submit a business plan summary and demonstration video for judging, with finalists earning the opportunity to present before a panel of business leaders. ContraBand Clothing, owned by Mya Swaby, a rising senior at Brookwood High School, received first place. ContraBand is an apparel company that designs and produces augmented reality clothing. The Key Images, owned by AkeyJah Charles, a rising senior at South Gwinnett High School, placed second. The Key Images is a photography service specializing in portrait, advertising and event photography. Complex Culture Photography, a photography business specializing in lifestyle and portrait photography, finished third. The business is owned by Komlan “CJ” Amousou, a recent graduate of Grayson Technical High School who will attend Gwinnett Tech in the fall and major in photography. Winners were awarded cash prizes for supporting their business ventures. The first-place winner received $500, second place $300 and third place $200. This year’s winners had strong support from their

respective communities and schools in Gwinnett. Entrepreneurial training courses, workshops, small business advising, as well as licensing were accessible to each of the winners. “Thanks to partnerships between Gwinnett County Public Schools and our local communities, our students are equipped with the soft skills and training necessary to start and operate a successful business,” said Cindy Quinlan, Entrepreneurship Pathway Lead for Gwinnett County Public Schools. “We are committed to meeting the demand of our student entrepreneurs who desire a classroom experience that encourages experiential learning.” The top winners are not new to putting their business plans to the test, having excelled in other local entrepreneurship programs, such as the city of Snellville’s Shark Tank student entrepreneur program. “The city of Snellville works rigorously to support student entrepreneurs because they are fundamental to the future of our small business community,” said Eric Van Otteren, director of economic development for the city of Snellville. “The success of these young entrepreneurs shows the true value in nurturing emerging talent.” Good News From Schools appears in the Gwinnett Daily Post’s Sunday Edition, highlighting achievements and success.

Bob McDill put the story of South into song

559051-1

The other day, Tink forwarded a story link to me. In an effort to know all things Southern and to love better this different life he has chosen, he often checks things online then forwards interesting pieces. The article, about Nashville songwriter Bob McDill, was from an online site called The Bitter Southerner. Though Tink did not know it at the time, McDill is one of my favorites. His songs have catchy melodies, clever stories and often a literary flair that is deep and poetic. Tink knows, though, that I’m apt to be the fan of anyone who writes romantically, intellectually or nostalgically about the South. This, McDill, does very well. Or did do well. He’s retired now. In the midst of a book

Ronda Rich deadline, I had taken myself to Mama’s house, where inspiration tends to flow smoothly without the interference of the chaotic atmosphere in our house. There’s always a bill to pay, a problem to solve, a bed to make or a dog to tend. At Mama’s, there is serene calm and peace that hearkens back to the laidback way that Mama and Daddy lived their lives. There, I was writing pages that were due soon

in New York when Tink’s email arrived. “I LOVE Bob McDill!!!!!” I replied, listing my favorite songs. I wrote a few more paragraphs, pondered my thoughts a while longer then — as writers often do — I took a break to read the McDill story. It would be easy to fill this column by listing my most beloved songs of McDill, who retired from songwriting at too young an age and settled into one of Nashville’s finer homes close to the governor’s mansion, but I’ll focus on two of my favorites. Both were highlighted in the story. “Song of the South” was a No. 1 hit for the megahit group, Alabama. When the group was touring to promote its first album, they did a show in my home-

town. Less than 300 people showed up, but I was there with my portable — then rather large — cassette recorder to interview them for my radio show. Within a year’s time, they were playing to sold-out crowds of thousands. The article noted that “Song of the South” had charted two times previously before becoming one of Alabama’s biggest hits. When they recorded the song about a kid growing up in the Depression, they left out a verse that I had never known existed: Well, I was 18 before I ate my fill We lived on the garden and the cow’s good will Winter was wet and summer was dry And Mama, she was old at 35. Instantly, I could relate

because Mama and Daddy had grown up just like that. “We lived on the garden and the cow’s goodwill” is more nostalgic than they cared to recall. “And mama, she was old at 35” explains the sad-looking photos of my grandparents. In four lines, 33 words, McDill wrote their lives’ stories. That’s the marvel of an excellent storyteller. “Good Ole Boys Like Me” is pure poetry. McDill explained to the magazine that he was inspired by Kentucky-born writer, Robert Penn Warren’s final novel, “A Place To Come To.” Warren was the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the phenomenal Southern novel “All The King’s Men.” I say often that there are no more than two to three degrees of Tinker connec-

tions to most people of renown, from Abraham Lincoln to Elvis Presley. It has become a game I play and that Tink, albeit reluctantly, joins. A friend and professional colleague of Tink’s is producer David Milch, widely considered one of the greatest geniuses to ever step into Hollywood (“NYPD Blue,” “Deadwood”). Milch, as a Yale professor, was mentored by Warren and even assisted him in writing textbooks. It never occurred to me that Tink would have a connection to a songwriter I revere so much. This amazes me. Ronda Rich is the bestselling author of “Mark My Words: A Memoir of Mama.” Visit www.rondarich.com to sign up for her free weekly newsletter.

How much time and money would you spend to become a better person? One of the fundamental differences between successful people and unsuccessful people is their willingness to invest in themselves. I’m using the word successful holistically to mean people who are happy and high-functioning in their chosen areas of endeavor, be they work, parenting, financial success or mastering the viola. Here’s what I observe: Successful people invest time and money developing themselves. They improve their situation by improving themselves. Less successful people don’t seek out personal growth. For those people, training is punitive, something you resort to when you’re at the end of your rope. Attitudes toward investing in self-development often vary by topic. The person who happily pays a tennis pro might be the same person who wouldn’t dream of paying for a parenting class. Which is kind of bizarre when you consider the payoff for being good at tennis versus being good at parenting. Early in my career, I was fortunate to work for an organization — Procter and Gamble — that believed in training. The ethos was: We hire the best. We spend time and money training you because we believe in your potential. Years later, I discovered not everyone gets excited about training. A client of mine, the director of training for a large firm, sent out a memo to 16 people telling them they had been selected for a special training program. Half the people responded, “Great, I’m so excited I was chosen.” The other half called up my client with concern. They wanted to know what the problem was. One of them said, “Did my boss say there was a performance issue?” These two opposite responses illustrate mindset. Mindset is the groundbreaking idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in her decades of research on achievement and success. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work — brains and talent are

just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities. In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success — without effort. Dweck’s research reveals: The fixed mindset people are wrong. People with a fixed mindset tend to resist training, because they believe they can’t change. Ironically enough, the more important the subject, the more likely they are to dig in. Which explains why poor leaders resist coaching and poor parents poo-poo seminars. In her book “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success,” Dweck demonstrates how teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education and sports. It also enhances relationships. Dweck says, “We like to think of our champions and idols as superheroes who were born different from us. We don’t like to think of them as relatively ordinary people who made themselves extraordinary.” In reality, when we admire someone who is a great parent, or a super successful entrepreneur, or a successful in any other meaningful endeavor, we’re likely looking at someone who invests time, and probably money, getting themselves there. Which circles us back to the central question: How much time and money are you willing to invest to become a better version of you? Lisa McLeod is the global expert in Noble Purpose. She is the author of the best-sellers “Selling with Noble Purpose” and “Leading with Noble Purpose.”

bestbets SUNDAY 8 p.m. on FOX Teen Choice 2018 Lots of surfboards will be up for grabs again, since they’re the “trophies” that go to the winners in this yearly event, presented from The Forum in Los Angeles. The results of young fans’ voting for favorites in movies, television, music, sports, comedy and digital media are announced. The top nominee among movies is “Avengers: Infinity War” with seven bids, while “Riverdale” and “Shadowhunters” lead the TV contenders with five each. Nick Cannon serves as host,

with Khalid among the featured performers.

MONDAY 10:05 p.m. on AMC Lodge 49 A fascinated but slightly befuddled Dud (Wyatt Russell) starts to familiarize himself with his new world of the Lodge, which has no dearth of eccentric characters and arcane traditions and practices, in the new episode “Moments of Truth in Service.” Meanwhile, Ernie (Brent Jennings) gets into a testy dispute with some of his Lynx lodge brothers over the matter of Larry’s (Kenneth Welsh) declining health.

TUESDAY

over, caused in part by family ties ... and, of course, Ramsay has only 24 hours to accomplish it.

9 p.m. on CW The Outpost Talon (Jessica Green) gets valuable — and somewhat unnerving — information from her rescuer in “Two Heads Are Better Than None,” as she learns the very nature of her existence. The killing of a Prime Order officer prompts a determined search for the perpetrator. Jake Stormoen, Anand Desai Barochia, Imogen Waterhouse,

THURSDAY

Gordon Ramsay Michael Flynn, Robyn Malcolm, Andrew Howard and Philip Brodie also star.

WEDNESDAY 9 p.m. on FOX Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back Those of a certain age — or of devotion to Turner Classic Movies — will know the name Sandra Dee. However, it’s a different one who runs the bar and grill that provides Gordon Ramsay and his “Hell on Wheels” with the season-finale mission in this episode set in Sacramento, Calif. Sandra Dee’s Bar-B-Que & Seafood needs a big make-

9 p.m. on NBC Trial & Error Though it appears that Lavinia (Kristin Chenoweth) is in the clear, the murder case isn’t over yet in the new episode “A Family Affair.” Strong suspicion falls elsewhere, and Josh (Nicholas D’Agosto) and his team seek information to continue their efforts — with Lavinia still serving as a needed resource. Jayma Mays, Sherri Shepherd and Steven Boyer also star. Another episode follows. 10 p.m. on ABC Take Two A case immediately becomes more complicated for Eddie and Sam (Eddie Cibrian, Rachel Bilson) in the new episode “Shadows of the Past,” as their latest client — who hired them to find his missing wife — becomes a serial killer’s latest victim. While investigating both situations, Eddie gets unhappy reminders of the reason he left the Los Angeles Police Department. Xavier

DeGuzman, Aliyah O’Brien and Alice Lee also star.

FRIDAY 8 p.m. on ABC WE Day An annual television event for the past several years, this large gathering of youngsters and celebrities — one of a number of such occasions staged yearly — features John Stamos as the host introducing others who aim to inspire youths to do great things in their communities and the world. Others appearing include Jennifer Aniston, Will Ferrell, Selena Gomez, Martin Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Dr. Phil McGraw and music’s Chainsmokers, Dierks Bentley and Cyndi Lauper. 8 p.m. on CW Masters of Illusion “Broken Glass, a Box of Swords and Cards that Really Cut” is the latest episode title to suggest that traditions of magic are upheld by those performing during the half-hour. Xavier Mortimer, Eric Jones, Chris Funk, Chipper Lowell, Greg Gleason, Shoot Ogawa, Titou and Rick Smith Jr. are the illusionists who show their stuff — if not their methodology — here. Dean

Cain is the host. Another episode follows.

SATURDAY

8 p.m. on PBS Austin City Limits With this episode, the series delves into a genre it doesn’t visit all that often: Latin music. One of Mexico’s most popular performers, singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade, offers selections from her Grammy Awardwinning 2015 album“ Hasta la Ruiz.” Then, the fellow-Grammywinning members of the Austin, Texas-based Grupo Fantasma (whose music was featured in the shows ”Breaking Bad” and ”Weeds”) apply their funk stylings to the tunes they offer.

Answering readers’ questions on AP, dual enrollment After my column a couple of weeks ago, “Straight Talk about AP Classes,” I received a number of questions from readers. Let me address a few of them. What did you mean when you said that advanced placement classes “expose students to left-wing dogma”? As a college professor, I’ve observed that students who took the most AP classes tend to be the most intelligent, yet paradoxically, they are also the most likely to make dubious assertions without offering evidence and spout outright falsehoods on issues like climate change (such as the “97 percent consensus” ca-

I believe indoctrinaJenkins tion is somewhat more likely to occur in humaninard). I can only conclude ties and social sciences that they got that stuff courses than in the hard from their teachers. sciences. On the other A more concrete exhand, many of my college ample involves AP U.S. students seem absolutely History, or APUSH, the convinced that human curriculum for which beings are destroying the draws heavily on the planet, that we are on work of Marxist historian the verge of a worldwide Howard Zinn.

somewhere. Which is better: AP or dual enrollment? Over the years, I’ve made my preference for dual enrollment abundantly clear — and I don’t have space to rehash all that here. Suffice it to say, if students want college credit, it’s generally better for them to take actual college courses, for which they automatically receive credit upon passing, than to take high school classes for which they might or might not get credit. That said, parents and students have to weigh multiple factors, including the student’s need and desires, the quality of the high school teachers and

courses, and the quality and accessibility of the local college. There may be times when it’s better for students to stay at the high school — and when they do, as I said in my previous column, AP classes are probably the best option. Which brings me to my last question. What is your advice for parents? Ultimately, parents have to decide what’s best for their kids. They should be proactive in looking at the policies and requirements of their child’s college of choice to see what it accepts and where those hours count. Both AP and dual enrollment offer opportunities

pet of the week Meet Lala. This grayfaced lady is looking for the perfect retirement home. At 9 years old, sweet Lala is just looking for the simple things in life — a comfy bed, a person she can love on and a safe place to call home. She came to the Atlanta Humane Society from a neglect case in south Georgia, so if any dog deserves to spend the rest of her days being pampered, it’s Lala. She is potty trained, gentle on the leash, and okay with other dogs as long as they’re gentle with her. Could you be the forever family Lala has waited her whole life for? She’s spayed, microchipped, up-todate on vaccines and is available for adoption at the Atlanta Humane Society’s Howell Mill Campus, which is located at 981 Howell Mill Road in Atlanta.

ARCHER TIGERS Head coach: Andy Dyer (63-35 at Archer, 63-35 overall)

OFFENSE Archer played to its strength last season with a stout defense, using a ball-control offense and the kicking game to seize control of games and eventually the Region 8-AAAAAAA title. The offense produced well at times, but not at others (7 points in quarterfinal loss to Colquitt, 32 points combined in two games vs. Mill Creek, 14 vs. South Gwinnett and 16 vs. Norcross). Those numbers should improve this season for several reasons, one of the biggest being the return of starting quarterback Carter Peevy. Peevy, who was thrown into varsity competition as a freshman, threw for 2,038 yards and 20 touchdowns with a 61.2 completion percentage last season as a sophomore. “Carter’s entering his third year as a starter, so he’s got a lot of experience under his belt now,” Archer head coach Andy Dyer said. “He’s seen a lot of football. We look for him to take another step forward this year. He’s a very good player and a great leader. He’s got the perfect personality for a

quarterback.” Peevy benefits from a trio of quality running backs in Semaje Banks (664 rushing yards, six TDs last season), Emmanuel Michel (pictured) and D.J. Taylor, and a receiving corps led by returning Braylen Weems (43 catches, 507 yards, 8 TDs last season). Trey Messer is an expected contributor at wide receiver, while Division I defensive backs Jalyn Phillips and Andrew Booth also will see time at the position. The offensive front has some proven players back, led by Ethan Lane,

Region: 8-AAAAAAA

Kaleb Chester and Derek Harden. “On the front, those three are the ultimate leaders and all three started last year,” Dyer said. “We’re trying to rebuild chemistry there with the offensive line and find the five who are most productive.” DEFENSE The 2017 defense had one of the best all-time seasons for a Gwinnett defense, particularly one in the highest classification. It gave up only 32 points in its last seven games, holding nationally ranked Grayson to three

points in a win that decided the region championship and holding eventual state runner-up Colquitt in check in a 12-7 loss in the state quarterfinals. “We played at an extremely high level on the defensive side of the ball,” Dyer said. “That was the personality of our team, great defense and kicking game because we were young offensively. We did an unbelievable job of going three and out and not giving up big plays. We made people drive the length of the field.” Graduation left some holes to fill in that unit, but plenty of talent returns, especially in the secondary, where Booth (Clemson) and Phillips (Alabama, Clemson, Tennessee, Oklahoma) are among the nation’s top recruits. Jalen Alexander has stepped up at the cornerback spot opposite Booth in what should be one of the best secondaries in the state. Archer also has a highlevel recruit at defensive end with Colby Wooden (Auburn, Clemson), as well as a talented Solomon Zubairu at the other end. “They’re going to be

anchors up front,” Dyer said. “But we’re going to need some more defensive ends and noseguards to keep developing for us to get where we want to be.” Tyler Roach, Amos Dahn and Michel are among the top contributors at linebacker. 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY Archer celebrates its 10th year of football this

season, a span of time that has flown by for Dyer and his fellow coaches. The Tigers have become a power, reaching the state playoffs the past five seasons. Four of the past five teams have reached double figures in wins, including a 2017 team that won its first 12 games and the region championship before falling in the state quarterfinals. “Coming off a very successful year where we fell short of our ultimate goal of playing for a state championship but we rolled off 12 wins in a row, Team 10’s got to realize that everything starts over,” Dyer said. “They’ve got to blaze their own trail and create their own identity. That’s what we’re in the process of doing in the preseason.” ETC. Two new coaches have been added to the staff, Jamaal Perry and Tim Goodwell. Perry previously worked at Central Gwinnett and Goodwell was at Tucker. … Jacob Waters was impressive in winning the Tigers’ kicking job. — Will Hammock

BERKMAR PATRIOTS Head coach: Willie Gary (0-0 at Berkmar, 0-0 overall)

OFFENSE After scoring just 39 points all last year, the Patriots are hoping a little extra experience at key areas will help the offense be more productive in 2018. That task begins with keeping goals fairly simple. “Since we’re still trying to build the program,” said Willie Gary, who takes over as head coach after serving as an assistant under former coach Kenan Dever the past three years. “Our goal is more than just scoring. It’s to get first downs. If you get first downs, you’ll eventually start scoring.” Being a little more battle tested should help senior quarterback Donte Henry, who got plenty of on-the-job training after taking over the starting job midway through last year, and hopes the lessons he learned pays dividends this fall. He will benefit from the return of junior running back Johnathan Wiley (pictured), who is healthy after battling through injuries last year, as well as a trio of receivers in juniors Desmond James and Nick Martin and senior Diontae Evans, who will be asked to fill a far greater role

with the loss of last year’s leading receiver, Xzavier Ward. The Patriots also had to rebuild their line, with senior Fernando Contreras and junior Raquan Strowbridge as the only returning starters. DEFENSE The Patriots allowed the most points (571) and most average points per game (57.1) in the state last season. That wasn’t all the defense’s fault, with turnovers by the offense contributing to it being forced to stay on the field

too long at times. Still, there is plenty of room for improvement, though like the offense, the defense hopes to do that behind a good core of returning starters. The caveat is that a number of those starters will be in different spots on the field — most notably, seniors Anthony Ferrell and Alvin Duncan, who moved up from linebacker to the defensive line, and fellow senior Hank Chambers shifting from a rover position to man one of the corners. There is method to Gary’s madness in those

changes. “We’re trying to emphasize to play fast,” Gary said. “We’re working on pursuit (to the ball) every day in drills and tackles every day in drills. … We’re moving guys around to use their speed. We’ll see if they respond. They’re learning, so we’ll see what happens.” ETC. As much everyone else around the Berkmar program would like to, it’s impossible to ignore the program’s current 47game losing streak dating back to Sept. 20, 2013,

which is the longest active streak in Georgia. However, Gary and the school’s administration are hoping to give the Patriots a fighting chance to break that streak early this fall. Already saddled with playing year after year in a region made up primarily of powerful county opponents, Berkmar is attempting to follow the model neighborhood rival Meadowcreek established and play a more manageable schedule prior to their traditionally tough Region 7-AAAAAAA slate. The Patriots’ four nonregion opponents went

a combined 5-31 last season, compared to the 20-23 mark put in by their four non-region foes last season, which included two state playoff teams. This year’s docket includes the Aug. 24 season opener at home against Cross Keys, a team that went winless in a season that included only six games and which has won more than one game in a season only three times since 1996. Gary emphasizes that patience will be a key as they try to end the long losing streak and build some confidence for this year, and hopefully beyond. “The thing is, no matter who we’re playing, nobody is a guarantee,” Gary said. “We are going to play some athletic teams. But yeah, we’re trying to follow (the Meadowcreek) model to the give kids confidence. We don’t want to take a beating every week. If we can win two of the four (non-region) games, maybe we can infuse some confidence and play harder and be a little more competitive in region games. We’re just trying to compete. That will be the key.” — David Friedlander

BROOKWOOD BRONCOS Head coach: Philip Jones (23-13 at Brookwood, 33-24 overall)

OFFENSE The Brookwood offense will feature 10 new starters and a new play-caller with the promotion of Tripp Allen and P.J. Katz to co-offensive coordinator. Allen, the son of former Bronco assistant Ray Allen, and Katz, a Brookwood grad, replace the outgoing Chad Pickett, now at Denmark, a new school in neighboring Forsyth County. They will run an offense that likely will trend slightly more toward the run-heavy offenses of the program’s past behind a big offensive line that features the unit’s only returning starter, 6-foot-2, 290-pound center Aidan Perkins. He will start in the middle of tackles Sean Hill (6-3, 280) and Chase Hall (6-4, 288), and guards Mike Bell (6-1, 320) and Mo Hongkham (6-0, 260). Tight end Ennio Zambino (pictured) also is a key element, having played heavy minutes last season during Brookwood’s run to the state semifinals. Head coach Philip Jones labeled speedy running backs Chris Carter and Eli Kohl as co-starters. They are tasked with replacing the graduated Dante Black, who rushed for 1,927

Last playoff appearance: 2017

He’s familiar with that role from the past when he led the Broncos through summer competitions while DiSpigna was busy with baseball commitments. “(Chavis) throws it well and he is a good athlete,” Jones said. “We will use his legs a lot more than we did Angelo. He’s very gritty, tough, competitive and a good leader.”

yards and accounted for 36 touchdowns in 2017. “The strength of our offense is the line and those two running backs,” Jones said. “We’ll be an old school Brookwood offense because we have a really good offensive line and two really good running backs. I’m very excited about our offensive line. … Losing (Duke recruit) Casey (Holman to graduation) hurt. He was kind of our bell cow on the offensive line last year. But we’re getting around to back being Brookwood with our offensive line, with big, strong, physical offensive line play week in and week out. We take a lot of pride in it. I do as head coach and Mike Hill,

our offensive line coach, is as good as there is in the state.” Brookwood also lost the two biggest elements in its passing game, Auburn signee Matthew Hill at wide receiver and quarterback Angelo DiSpigna, a Mercer baseball signee. Hill, the Daily Post’s offensive player of the year, had 2,185 all-purpose yards and 13 TDs. DiSpigna threw for 2,079 yards and 19 TDs. Bobby Ezzard, Jayden Williams, Zac Dyer, Lanier transfer Mekal Fuller and Lorenzo Britt are among the wide receivers in the rotation this year. Senior Conner Chavis steps in as DiSpigna’s replacement.

DEFENSE A bigger, stronger defensive line is encouraging for the Broncos. However, the situation is similar to the offense with only one starter back — cornerback Michael Killebrew. Killebrew and Sterling Ross fill the cornerback spots, while Zion Pullins and Dennario Stewart are the safeties. Stewart, who gained 20-plus pounds in the offseason, brings starting experience from his previous school, Mountain View. Anthony Gorney, voted as a team captain, was a big contributor to the defense last season, leaving him as the most experienced linebacker in a group that also will rely on Ethan Quarshie, Tony Ward, Tyler Knight and Cameron Randolph.

The defense, headed up by coordinator John Poitevint, also is equipped better in terms of stopping the run with a big, strong front. Joel Seton (5-8, 250), Jake Winskie (6-3, 250), Nick Perez (5-8, 235) and Steven Relea (6-0, 240) are among the important players on the line. “I think we’re going to be physical on defense, just based on what I’ve seen and all the padded

stuff we’ve done,” Jones said. “We did a great job stopping the run against Hoover (Ala.) and we did a great job in the summer in padded stuff. I think we will be a bigger, more physical group on the front end. I think we’re going to stop the run better than we’ve done.” ETC. Hunter Hall is the Broncos’ punter, while the kicking competition featured three contenders in Dylan Schefske, Jonah Randle and Jake Cartmill. … In addition to the change at offensive coordinator, Ben McLane was moved to quarterbacks coach, the position he played on Brookwood’s 2010 state championship team. … The defense features a trio of new coaches, including Paul Meunier, a former college defensive analyst at Wisconsin who is the new safeties coach. Former Ole Miss player Jason Jones coaches the defensive line and the outside linebackers coach is Steve Siegmund, a veteran coach whose long career includes eight years at Camden County under Jeff Herron. — Will Hammock

from colleges in the SEC, ACC and PAC 12. “It’s not new to him again,” Ford said. “He’s been through 14 different wars and come out on the other side. He’s a lot more comfortable.” McLaughlin has a few familiar targets returning from last season in Austin Turner, Clayton Nelson and Jamaal Singleton. All three saw meaningful time as wide receivers for Buford last year. Ford added Forbes Hamby and Xyre Wilson in the mix as well. “We’ve certainly got some experience to replace from guys like Isaiah Isaac, Matthew Walton and Tyler Gillis, but we’ve got a good crew behind them who have been working really hard,” Ford said.

Offensive line is one of Buford’s most experienced positions returning to the fold. Buford returns four starters from 2017’s front, including Ohio State commit Harry Miller. With the addition of heavyweights Carter Colquitt, Riley Simonds and Reece McIntyre, Buford’s offensive line will be able to control the line of scrimmage against several opponents this season. Seth Mclaughlin will likely fill in the final open spot on the offensive line. While he didn’t have much starting experience in his sophomore season, he had reps during meaningful snaps as the “swingman” for Buford in 2017. “He’s certainly somebody I have no trepidation about,” Ford said.

560574-1

OFFENSE Buford’s 2018 schedule is no cupcake. The Wolves start the season in the Corky Kell Classic with Class AAAAAA semifinalist Tucker. They continue their non-region gauntlet when they host consistent Florida contender Deerfield Beach. Buford ends non-region play against a nationally ranked preseason top-25 team from Lawrenceville, Archer. Part of a committee of running backs last season, four-star recruit Derrian Brown seems poised to be the featured back for Buford. Brown boasts a versatile skill set as a runner and a receiving threat out of the backfield. But Buford will stick with the committee approach that’s proven successful in past seasons. “I think you’ll see Elijah Turner have a big year,” head coach John Ford said. “I think we’ll have a pretty good crew at running back. I think Derrian is probably the most experienced coming back, so I think you’ll see him get the bulk of the preseason attention.” Aaron McLaughlin (pictured) has established himself in the role as Buford’s starting quarterback in his sophomore season. He threw for more than 1,700 yards as a freshman in 2017. At 6-foot-4, 225 pounds, Mclaughlin is gaining attention

DEFENSE Quentin Skinner, Jalar Holley, Ahmad Craig and Jackson Powell will form the nucleus of a solid defensive line for Buford. All four were fairly experienced inthe defense last season. Buford will have some work to do in replacing lost linebackers and defensive backs from last season. “We have some good kids back there who are working hard, and coaches are coaching them hard, but you lose guys like Anthony Grant, Carson

Guy, Michael McMorris and Kellen Neal — Bryson Richardson — you’ve got a lot of production to replace,” Ford said. Even deep into the summer, the competition for the top linebacker, safety and corner positions in training camp was still ongoing. Three-star Division I prospect K.J Johnson and Singleton provide Buford with mature options at defensive back to mix in with a handful of underclassmen competing for the jobs. ETC. Hayden Olsen was injured for parts of his sophomore season, but he will resume duties as Buford’s primary placekicker. “He’s had a really good offseason, and I’m really excited to see what he brings to the table special teams-wise,” Ford said. Olsen and backup quarterback Jarvis Evans could see reps as the punter. … It’s been 20 years since the Buford football team has missed the playoffs, a remarkable streak even for a perennial powerhouse. During that time, Buford has fallen short of reaching the quarterfinals once. Buford is also on a streak of five region titles. Ten state championships later, Ford and the Wolves are looking to add to Buford’s ring count for the first time since 2014. — Taylor Denman

CENTRAL GWINNETT BLACK KNIGHTS Head coach: Todd Wofford (39-46 at Central Gwinnett, 39-46 overall)

OFFENSE The big question offensively in the offseason was finding a replacement at quarterback for Jarren Williams, now a freshman at the University of Miami (Fla.). Williams did everything the past two seasons, accounting for 54 passing touchdowns, 19 rushing touchdowns and almost 6,000 passing yards during that span. What he also did was take care of the football — he threw just eight interceptions in two years (four in 2016, four in 2017). Brookwood transfer Justin Fomby, a senior with a nice group of offers already, and junior Skylar Adams are both good options in Williams’ former spot. Fomby has a lot of potential, but hasn’t started at the varsity level, while Adams brings experience in the Black Knights’ offense. “We have a great situation at quarterback,” Central head coach Todd Wofford said. “Skylar has been here three years and he knows the offense inside and out. He’s gotten time and chances in the game because I try to play my backups as much as I can. So he’s had some

experience on Friday nights. He’s like a Swiss Army knife. He knows quarterback and he knows every receiver position. He started a couple of games at receiver last year. Now he’s a guy that can start and if anybody goes down in another spot, he can go in there. … Justin’s a kid that if I had him for a couple of years, he would be off the charts. He’s still learning a lot. I put a lot on the quarterback. Our quarterback, like most offenses, has to control everything. But in this one you’ve got to know everything. “He’s been in a crash course from spring. We did more 7-on-7s this summer than I normally

do, just to get him caught up on chemistry, progressions. He’s not used to going through this many progressions, so it’s a learning curve.” As usual, Central has talent at the wide receiver position, including highly touted sophomore Daejon Reynolds (140 yards, 3 TDs in spring game), Kam King, Zion Mills, De’Andre Sutton and T.J. Ellis, a transfer from Brookwood. Running back also is an offensive strength with multiple options, Wofford said. He is high on returning back Justin Wilkins (pictured), as well as Kendell Martin and Derrick Daniel (also a key player at linebacker).

The offensive line is another big uncertainty based on its overall lack of experience. Graduation wiped out the whole unit, so it’s up to new offensive line coach Edmund Kugbila to teach and reconstruct that group. Kugbila is a former Central player who was an All-American at Valdosta State and played for the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. “We’ve got some decent size (on the line), what we don’t have is a lot of experience,” Wofford said. “The offensive line was as green as grass. That’s why I hired Edmund. He’s really, really good. From the spring game to right now, they are getting better.”

New defensive coordinator Jay Boyter, whose experience includes Newton, Eastside and Byrnes (S.C.), is tasked with shoring up that side of the ball. “We wanted to stay close to our 3-3, 3-4 base, that’s what they did at Byrnes, and it fits in well with us,” Wofford said. “A lot of the terminology transferred over, which works. There are a lot of similar things we do. To me, we’ve got more exotic blitzes than we’ve done in the past. It’s made things difficult in practice, probably more difficult than

DEFENSE It’s no secret Central needed to improve greatly on defense in the offseason after missing the state playoffs with one of the nation’s top quarterbacks. The struggles really hit during region play, outside of a shutout win over lowly Berkmar. The Black Knights gave up 37 points to Norcross and 36 to Lakeside-DeKalb, then closed the season by giving up 52 to Brookwood, 41 to Meadowcreek and 69 to Parkview.

it’s been in awhile with how our offensive line is still developing. “I’m excited to see what the defense does. We were young on defense last year with a lot of juniors and sophomores out there. So those guys have a lot of experience coming back.” The secondary has a number of playmakers, most notably recent West Virginia commitment Nicktroy Fortune. Tyan Milton, who got off to a great start last season before an injury, also is back along with Devon Brown and Xavier Crosy. Hardhitting linebacker Joe Gracia also has a lot of experience on the defense, which also features Chris Williams, Kylan Jones, Cornelius Evans and Michael Harrell as key players. Heavily recruited freshman linebacker Aubrey Smith (6-2, 220) also may earn a starting spot after picking up Alabama and Georgia offers in the offseason. “We’ve got a lot of guys on defense that can rotate,” Wofford said. “We have good depth with linebackers and in the secondary, and we’re being creative on our defensive line with how we mix folks in — Will Hammock

COLLINS HILL EAGLES Head coach: Lenny Gregory (6-5 at Collins Hill, 19-13 overall)

OFFENSE When Lenny Gregory was hired as Collins Hill’s head football coach prior to last season, opposing coaches wanted to know his plans offensively. Would it be some spread offense? Would it be all-in on Delaware-style wing-T? The Eagles tinkered with both. “Last summer we were a mix of spread offense, three-back offense,” Gregory said. “We’ve settled down now and we know who we are. We’ve created an identity. We are who we are. It’s no secret. We’re wing-T, Delaware. We’re a adding little bit of option to that. In the offseason, we went up to Navy and studied what they’re doing. We spent some time at St. Pius with Coach (Paul) Standard on how we can blend that concept with the wing-T.” Gregory also has a new offensive coordinator in Joe Miller, a wing-T coach whose experience includes a stint locally at Apalachee. “He’s a wing-T guy and it’s hard to find those guys because those guys don’t exist anymore,” Gregory said. “We’re the only team in (Class) AAAAAAA football that runs this offense. If you find guys who are interested in this, it’s usually older guys on the way out. Younger guys don’t do this. So to find Coach Miller, he’s passionate about it, was critical in the offseason.” The roster features a hand-

ful of talented running backs, a good fit for the system. Physical fullback DeAngelo Oliver is back along with other talented runners like Isaiah Love, Tank Pritchett, Jared Mapp, Jalen Johnson and Spencer Anderson. Gregory also likes his two quarterbacks, Robbie Waters and Nick Best. Both are dangerous runners, a necessity in the wing-T, but they will take shots downfield to receivers like Khalil Marshall, Jason Ezeude and Gage Arnold. Division I prospects Cody Hutchison and Cameron Kinnie anchor the offensive line. DEFENSE Like the offense, the defense has a new coordinator. Rob Patton will lead the

Eagles’ defense after serving previously as defensive coordinator at Grayson. He reunites with Gregory from their days as assistants on Grayson’s 2011 state championship team. “It’s neat to be back together and we’re on the same page,” Gregory said. “He’s super intelligent. He’s like Bill Belichick. He’s so knowledgeable, passionate, detail-oriented. He pushes me. I’m a grinder. I work long hours and I love football. I love football.

Last playoff appearance: 2017 o’clock at night bouncing ideas off me. I love his passion. I love that he understands what we’re doing because he’s a part of that culture we had at Grayson with Coach (Mickey) Conn.” Patton’s unit figures to be stout along the line behind Jared Bartlett, a relentless pass rusher, and Tomari Fox (pictured) at the other end. “Both of those guys coming off the edge are as good as pass rushers as I’ve coached,” Gregory said. Anthony Vinson and Tommy Turnage also are key players at defensive line. “We feel like we can pick up and improve on what we did last year defensively,” Gregory said. Kendall Davis has the most experience of the returning linebackers, while Collins Hill will count on JaQuan Reece, D’Ante Carr, Chris Quaites and Antar Williams in the secondary. YEAR 2 WITH GREGORY Collins Hill exceeded expectations by many outside the program in Gregory’s first season, winning four of its last five games in region play to make the state playoffs. Gregory is excited to be farther along in the building process in his second season since coming over from Centennial. “The culture is better (now than at this time last year),” Gregory said. “It starts in the

weight room. Now the kids, they understand the culture has been created. The kids have bought into what we do and why we do it. That’s the neatest part. When you come into a program, you always try to hurry things up and rush it because you want immediate success. You know that’s impossible, but you try to speed things up and it’s tough. This is my second program taking over and both programs are very similar. “We came in and in both cases the numbers were way up and everybody’s excited about new coaches, then it settles down and everybody realizes what the program is and what the investment requires. Then people decide it’s not for them. Then your numbers go down. In Year 2, your numbers are going to be lower, but you’ve got more buy-in.” Some staff changes also have happened over the offseason, most notably the two coordinators. “I’m extremely demanding,” Gregory said. “I can’t speak for any other coach. But my thing to my staff is never let a kid outwork you. If I feel a coach is not outworking our kids, that coach is probably not going to be able to work with me. I want to be around people who want to win, who do what it takes to create a winning culture. And I feel like this is one of best staffs I’ve been a part of.” — Will Hammock

DACULA FALCONS Head coach: Clint Jenkins (0-0 at Dacula, 0-0 overall)

OFFENSE Dacula head coach Clint Jenkins took over for Tommy Jones, who won three region titles in five seasons. While Jenkins has been calling defenses at Dacula for the last seven years, he’s now delving into the details of the Falcons’ offense as well. He didn’t see much time behind Shayne Buckingham last season, but Jarrett Jenkins has won the quarterback position. The junior has a strong arm and the ability to move around in the pocket. “He’s done a great job in 7-on-7 and we’ve been to several padded camps,” the coach said. “Jarrett is a good decision maker and he’s got some pop on his ball. He’s a lot of fun to watch.” Deontaye Brown is one of Dacula’s most versatile athletes. He’s poised to be a crucial weapon for Jarrett Jenkins at wideout, but he’ll also factor in as a kick returner, linebacker and even punter. Brown is a lanky 6-foot-1 with strong hands that expand his catching radius. “You’ve got a guy that’s contributing on offense,

defense and special teams as a punter,” Jenkins said. “Deo is a guy who’s going to step up.” A newcomer in the starting 11, Konata Mumpfield will be featured wide on the opposite side of the field from Brown at wide receiver. Chris Scott is another new starter that will find time in the slot, where his length and speed could prove to be a mismatch for opposing defensive backs and linebackers. “We definitely have

some playmakers out there,” Jenkins said. At running back, Trenton Jones’ speed as a 400-meter runner on Dacula’s track and field team translates to the football field. Sean McDaniel will share some of the carries with Jones in his senior season. On the offensive line, junior Riley Adcock returns at center after a full season of starts under his belt. Shawn Clottey steps back in to cover the blind side tackle spot for

the second consecutive season, but Dacula is filling three spots vacated by graduating seniors. DEFENSE Dacula has a wealth of athletic players with previous starting experience and Jenkins’ continued involvement on defense. “It’s been a good summer,” Jenkins said. “The kids are working hard and we try to come in and take care of the details every day. We feel like if we do that, that’s going to help

us in October, November and down the road.” University of Georgia commit Jalen Perry (pictured) is a speedy, quicktwitch athlete at cornerback. But Jenkins is also impressed by the players featured around Perry in the Falcons’ secondary. Jaylen Drummond served as a “utility” in the secondary and outside linebacker in 2017. His versatility makes him easy to plug into different spots, be it safety, corner or linebacker. Jaiev Khan is one of Dacula’s starting safeties for the second consecutive season. His length and ability to make plays on passes in mid-air make him an effective option at defensive back. “Our deal now is trying to get everybody in the right place,” Jenkins said. “We have some guys who can run and hit, so we want to make sure we have the best 11 on the field.” Noah Duba started games for Dacula as a junior, and his 6-foot3 frame will again be featured at the nose guard position. “He’s played since he was a sophomore,” Jenkins said. “He’s a big,

strong kid who can make a mess of things. He’ll be what we call our tank defensive end.” Joseph Lopez is a 6-1 mike linebacker who will get his first full season starting in the front seven as a senior, though he had plenty of playing time as a junior. Jenkins said his understanding of Dacula’s scheme makes him an effective run stopper. McDaniel and Chris Smith both have full seasons of starting experience at Dacula’s inside and outside linebacker spots. ETC. Zachary Gerks returns as Dacula’s junior placekicker and Brown is likely to take punting duties. … Ronald Utreras is a senior who Jenkins mentioned could find a role as either a depth option as a placekicker or on kickoffs. … Dacula’s football program has never won three consecutive region championships. The Falcons are also looking to advance into the quarterfinals and beyond. It would be the first time the program has done so since the first year of Jones’ tenure at Dacula. — Taylor Denman

DISCOVERY TITANS Head coach: Efrem Hill (3-17 at Discovery, 3-17 overall)

OFFENSE As they enter only their third season of varsity play, the Titans will feature their most experienced squad overall, but particularly on offense. As many as eight players who started last season will be back in the starting lineup this fall. Half of those will be on the offensive line, where seniors Christian Davis, Cristian Beltran and Wilson Ruiz and junior Ariel Gonzalez make up the building block of a unit which could be significantly better than the one that averaged just over 13 points per game last year. “We’ve got a lot of good skill guys, but those guys (on the line) have been here the whole time,” Discovery coach Efrem Hill said. “From the minute I took over, this was our offensive line, minus one. They’re not the biggest, but they’ve gotten a lot stronger. Throughout the summer, they’ve shown we won’t be pushed around like we were at times last year. The work they’ve put in since January is great. It’s the best group by far.” Just as important as the veteran line is the return of fellow senior Alex Drazic (pictured), who enters his fourth season as the Titans’ starting quarterback. He has grown into the team’s leader after throwing for over 1,300 yards and eight touchdowns last season. Combined with return of three

DULUTH WILDCATS Head coach: Bob Swank (6-24 at Duluth, 14-46 overall)

OFFENSE While six starters are returning, the Duluth offense will feature a dramatically different look for 2018. The major reason has as much to do with which players are not back — specifically the graduation of quarterback Jalil El-Amin and prolific receivers like Will Huzzie and Travion Hampton from a passing game that produced nearly 2,000 yards. With returning offensive line senior starters Jayson Hale, Brennon Julio and Andre Cross, and running backs Adam Mullins and Logan Goins, Wildcats head coach Bob Swank is looking at a much more terrestrial approach this fall. “It’s a big change,” Swank said of his new set, which will feature a fullback, two slotbacks, a tight end and only one receiver. “We’re going from throwing almost every down to the exact opposite. It’s the whole package. In addition to (El-Amin), we had three or four guys who played wide receiver graduate. Our (returning) experience is on the line, so we’re going to try to use to that to

our advantage.” The biggest impact in the new system might come from running back Deonte Miller, a 6-foot2, 210-pound senior who transferred in from Union City High School in Tennessee over the summer. “He’s an experienced kid,” Swank said. “He rushed for 1,000 yards as sophomore and his team won the state title in Tennessee last year. He’s a bigger and stronger back than anybody that I’ve

ever coached.” Miller’s addition, as well as the presence of at least 10 other seniors on the offense, should help take some pressure of sophomore Jaiden Jones as he settles in as starting quarterback. DEFENSE As experienced as the Duluth offense is, the defense will be an even more veteran crew, with seven returning starters, including three of the top four

tackle leaders from last year in the secondary — seniors Antavian Lyndsey, Christian ThompsonBrown and Goins. With three more returning starters on the defensive line in seniors Adam Mullins Josh Johnson and Shane Word, Swank is excited about the possibilities for the unit this season. “The only underclassmen we have (starting) are (junior defensive end Jordan) Coggins and

(sophomore Justin) Richardson at corner,” Swank said. “Even though we’ve got two new starters at linebacker, both of them are seniors who have been in the fire before. “I think running to the football (will be the strength of the defense). This is a tough group of kids, and I think we’re a little more resilient than years past.” Indeed, even those players expected to start on defense who didn’t start last year nonetheless saw action, including senior Jabari Palmer at Mike linebacker.

The addition of Norcross transfer Christopher Cruz should only add to the unit’s depth.

ETC. With all but three of the slots in the projected starting lineup occupied by seniors, and about 30 total seniors on the roster, 2018 figures to be one of the most experienced Duluth teams in many years. Such a veteran group has Swank and the Wildcats thinking big, even in Region 6-AAAAAAA, which should be as brutally tough as ever with defending state champion North Gwinnett, traditional powers Mill Creek, Collins Hill and Peachtree Ridge and up-and-coming program Mountain View. “Our goal is to make the playoffs (this season),” Swank said. “We know there are some big dogs in our league, but whatever that takes, whether it’s winning three games or four games in our region, our goal is to make the playoffs.” If the Wildcats are to meet that goal, they’ll have to buck history. They haven’t qualified for the postseason since 1994. — David Friedlander

GREATER ATLANTA CHRISTIAN SPARTANS Head coach: Tim Hardy (71-13 at GAC, 80-28 overall)

OFFENSE There’s not much stewing over last year’s loss to Peach County in the semifinals of the Class AAA playoffs. Greater Atlanta Christian didn’t spend the offseason wondering how it might have changed the result if it protected its home field against Peach County. The Spartans — as they have done for the past two seasons under head coach Tim Hardy — expect to contend. While quarterback Josh Rose (pictured) absorbed the majority of the snaps at quarterback as a junior in 2017, Jackson Hardy appeared in all 14 games for GAC as well as a sophomore. The two have shared reps during 7-on-7 and summer training camps and are competing for a starting spot entering the season. “We want to be as good as we can at as many positions,” Tim Hardy said. “Both Josh Rose and Jackson Hardy played last year. They’re different players, both bring a lot to the table. Both of those guys are well-respected by their teammates. They lead well and work hard, so that is a deep position

on our football team.” Perhaps the biggest piece that the Spartans will have to replace are leading rushers Kyler McMichael and Alex Boglin. Fortunately, junior running back Montae Bailey isn’t a green replacement, since he saw the thirdmost carries on the team last season. “At running back we have a couple guys that come back with experience with Montae Bailey and

Tyler Bride,” Hardy said. “Both are good backs who were productive last year.” GAC’s strength is what it returns on the front line. Five-star linemen with NFL pedigrees Chris and Myles Hinton return for their senior and junior seasons, respectively. While some high school football programs are phasing out tight ends for more prototypical wide receivers, the Spartans feel like tight end is one of their

deepest offensive positions. Jeffrey Blake is a 6-foot-4, 230-pound Vanderbilt commit. He’s flanked by Choe BryantStrother, Thomas Lowman and Spencer Helms. All four project to factor into GAC’s offense over the course of the season. Jake Floyd caught 27 passes for 301 yards as a junior, and looks forward to a full season at WR1. “He’s a real difference maker with the ball in his

hands,” Hardy said. Ty James saw some reps as a junior, but is poised to factor into GAC’s offense more this season. DEFENSE A number of GAC’s impact players on offense will do the same on defense.

linebacker. Floyd is also projected for snaps as a defensive back. Blake, the Spartans’ SEC tight end, is also playing outside linebacker. Both of GAC’s running backs will double as defensive backs. “Part of our M.O. is guys have to play on both sides,” Hardy said. “Sometimes the biggest key for us is personnel management, and we’re going to continue to build depth. Who’s the third safety? Who’s the fifth receiver? Who’s the third inside linebacker? That’s part of the journey, the process of building a team. There may be some sophomores who aren’t ready on July 12, who are ready on Sept. 12.” Hardy acknowledged team speed on defense helped hold 11 opponents to fewer than three scores last season. Nonetheless, Hardy is confident in players that will step into bigger roles, such as Roland Witherspoon and Elijah Pryor on the defensive line. “We’re excited for guys who have worked for their time, and how that’s going to come together,” Hardy said. — Taylor Denman

GRAYSON RAMS

Head coach: Christian Hunnicutt (10-2 at Grayson, 14-8 overall)

OFFENSE Graduation took its toll on the Rams’ offense, but it reloads with a talentladen bunch. It doesn’t hurt when those returning players include three high-level seniors on the offensive line — Tennessee commit Wanya Morris, Auburn commit Jakai Clark and Michigan commit Trente Jones. “Those three are our leaders,” Grayson head coach Christian Hunnicutt said. “We’ve got a number of kids battling it out at the guard position.” The running back returnees include two experienced players, Ronald Thompkins (Nebraska commit) and Jonathan Halyard. Thompkins got off to a nice start last year before a season-ending knee injury in the sixth game. “Both played significant snaps last year at running back,” Hunnicutt said. Texas A&M recruit Kenyon Jackson (6-foot6, 200 pounds) headlines a skilled group of wide receivers that also includes Josh Stinson, Maceo Thornhill, Mountain View transfer Keelan Marion (South Alabama commit),

Three of the four starters in the secondary also return with Texas commit Kenyatta Watson and Duke commit Jalen Alexander at the cornerback spots, and Georgia Tech commit Jeremiah Smith at safety. Jaylen Haynes (Austin Peay) and Josh Stinson lead the way at the other safety spot.

ly new.” Nash’s unit features one of the nation’s top players in linebacker Owen Pappoe, an Auburn recruit, as well as defensive linemen Kevin Harris (Alabama) and Tru Thompson (Florida State). Hayden Gilford, Caelan Johnson, Jadyn Bost, Tyler McCaskill, Tre Brown, Kenny Edwards, Allen Smith (Mountain View transfer, North Carolina commit), Logan Daniels and Jordyn Elphic also are impact players in the front seven.

LOADED CLASS National Signing Day will be huge at Grayson this year, both in quality and quantity. The number of signees will be impressive, but they also will include some of the nation’s top recruits. Pappoe and Morris rank sixth and seventh nationally on the ESPN 300 recruiting rankings, Watson comes in at No. 93 nationally, Harris is at No. 105 and Jones is at No. 157, giving the Rams five players in the top 150 or so. They will be joined by a large group of Power Five conference signees who just missed being ranked by ESPN. “The best part of this team is our best players are our hardest workers,” Hunnicutt said. — Will Hammock

Ryan King and Jamal Haynes. Beau DeBerry, Zach Bush and Javian Boykin are the top tight ends. Versatile quarterback D.J. Irons graduated, but two good options remain at the position with senior J’Kori Jones and 6-5 junior C.J. Dixon, whose offer list already includes the likes of Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State. Those two will work with new offensive coordinator Dante Williams, who was promoted from quarterbacks coach. Williams, a

former quarterback at Duluth and Samford, coached at Collins Hill before being hired at Grayson. “I could not be more pleased with (Williams’) preparation and planning,” Hunnicutt said. “Dante, even though he’s a quarterback guy, is still going to have that balance offensively of run and pass. Dante from a playcaller standpoint is going to have an offense similar to (former Grayson coach) Mickey’s (Conn) offense. He’s done an outstanding job with our quarterbacks.”

DEFENSE Grayson also sports a new defensive coordinator in Jason Nash, who was the co-defensive coordinator for state runner-up Colquitt County last season. His past experience includes a stint at South Forsyth. He inherits a defense that, like the offense, is talented. “Our scheme will be far more multiple,” Hunnicutt said. “I’ve been really pleased with (the players) because they’re having to learn something complete-

a bigger, stronger line, while Blake Scarberry moves over from the line to wingback, which could open the way for juniors Winston Gassant and Michael Hillard to platoon to carry the rushing load. And with Saturday’s son Jeffrey back with fellow senior Will Warbington to lead a deep receiver corps, there should be plenty of weapons to throw to when the situation calls for it. DEFENSE The increase in strength, size and depth should spill over to

the Hebron defense as well. While only five starters are back, the Lions should have plenty of flexibility, enough to stray from their normal 4-4 set from time to time and give opposing offenses a variety of different looks. “Our base is 4-4,” Saturday said. “It’s what we ran last year, and we had some pretty good performances that helped us against good football teams that could run ball well. Really, it’s what we’re looking to do again. But like every other team, if there are any other areas we can

561318-1

OFFENSE Eventually, the Hebron offense could have a bit of a different look, with sophomore transfers Colten Gauthier (Loganville) and Justin Peavy (Dacula) possibly seeing action under center. They both bring qualities head coach Jeff Saturday (pictured) believes could make an immediate impact. “They’re both big-body guys,” Saturday said. “They’re effective quarterbacks. Both of them are young and transferred in, so they’re learning the system and our shotgun wing-T philosophy. “We’re trying to get to the point where we can control the game. Being a former offensive lineman myself, I want to control the tempo. In high school ball, you’ve got to run the football first and become physical team and control the clock. That allows the passing game to come in. But you’ve got to get that established first before you stretch the field and throw it downfield.” The Lions appear to be in position to do just that despite the departure of running back Chandler Lewis, who was in the top five in the county in rushing yards last season. Seniors Micah Harden and Spencer Trenary and junior Brennan Myers back to anchor

exploit, we’ll change it up and give teams something to think about. “A defense has got to be able to make stops and get turnovers. Those are some of the things we’ve been focusing on (in the offseason) — creating more turnovers, getting more hats around the ball and becoming more explosive defensively. That’s kind of our mentality behind keeping guys fresh. Rotating more players keep guys fresh, we don’t really care which guys start. We’re going to play a lot of kids both sides of the ball so that by the fourth quarter, we

can be in better position to win football games.” Having last year’s team leader in tackles in linebacker Michael Moyers (131 tackles) back will certainly help that task, as well as the return of veteran lineman Jackson Rhodes, plus playmakers in the secondary like Warbington (4 INTs last season), Saturday and Hunter Borges (2 INTs). ETC. As has been mentioned, the Lions will be noticeably larger as a team in 2018, and Saturday says there is a good reason for that. Christian Davila, a former two-sport star at Hebron who quarterbacked the Lions to a program-best nine wins in 2010 and was a starting outfielder for the 2011 state championship baseball team, is back as the program’s strength and conditioning coach. And Saturday said his impact has been immediately apparent. “Christian Davila has done a fantastic job for us,” Saturday said. “Our kids have really bought in to what he’s been teaching. He’s a Hebron alum, part of the baseball state championship team, and he’s done a good job and gotten the kids to buy in.” — David Friedlander

LANIER LONGHORNS Head coach: Korey Mobbs (34-11 at Lanier, 34-11 overall)

OFFENSE Much of the promise on offense surrounds the return of senior Zach Calzada (pictured). The quarterback’s offseason improvement impressed not only his coaches, but those at the college level, too. After racking up a long list of offers, the late bloomer committed to Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M. Calzada completed 116 of 227 passes (51.1 percent) for 1,706 yards and 15 touchdowns (with 11 interceptions) last season, but more is expected this season. “The game experience from last year, especially for a quarterback, will help him,” Lanier head coach Korey Mobbs said. “Even recruiting-wise, he was a later bloomer. Most quarterbacks have got offers by the time they’re sophomores, but he wasn’t a starter as a sophomore. He was 5-10 and now he’s 6-4. A lot of that is growing into his body, maturing mentally and physically. You’ve got to develop that confidence by being thrown in the fire. He will be much more confident this season. He’s a guy that can make the

Kameron Brown, the unit’s leading tackler the past two years, and fellow senior Damian Nytko return as the veterans at linebacker. They are joined by junior Phillip Webb, who is rated among the nation’s top recruits in his class. The secondary is the least experienced position on defense with only returning starter Isaiah Smith back. Trey Short joins Smith as key players at safety, while Kevonte Polk and Demontae Lipscomb have emerged at cornerback. Polk moves over from running back,

ETC. Nafis Pickett, previously at Duluth, has joined the Longhorns as wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator. Lanier also has two former players on the coaching staff, Jordan Brannen and Taylor Grant. … Mobbs is entering his fifth year as Lanier’s head coach. He has a 34-11 record with four state playoff appearances in his first four seasons. He is excited about his fifth team’s chances to keep that streak going. “We like the fact they’re a group that just values going to work every day,” he said. “The details matter. We’re trying to get to the point where regardless what year it is and who’s on the field, there’s a standard they know exists at Lanier. We hope we’ve established that.” — Will Hammock

throws to win games.” While the quarterback experience is a positive, less is known about an offensive line that was wiped out by graduation. Returning starter Jagger Jones headlines that group. “Jagger Jones will lead us as a senior, a returning starter, a college-level player,” Mobbs said. “He’s done a good job leading that group.” Tight end and H-back Jacoby Sharpe, a Temple commit, also will be an important part of the of-

fense, in addition to his duty on defense. The running back position is led by two promising players, Taj Barnes and Andre Watson. Wide receiver is a position of depth with Cole Thornton, Zach Charles, Nahil Perkins, Jahkai Richardson (who moved over from cornerback) and Jordan Dumond in the mix catching passes from Calzada. DEFENSE Three veteran players back along the defensive

line was a good building block for the offseason. Jake Ludwig is a starter for the third straight season, Jason Wallace is back as a starter at noseguard and Sharpe will be more important defensively after spending his junior season as a full-time offensive starter. “All three of those guys played a ton for us last year,” Mobbs said. “And we feel really good about our linebacking crew. We return three guys who played a ton there, too.”

where he was a contributor last season. “I feel good about the way we’ve played collectively on defense,” Mobbs said. “I think we’re looking to take it to the next level and I think we have some guys who can do that. I also think our region will be tougher this year.”

MEADOWCREEK MUSTANGS Head coach: Jason Carrera (11-20 at Meadowcreek, 26-28 overall)

OFFENSE While Meadowcreek’s playoff season in 2017 might have seemed miraculous, head coach Jason Carrera saw signals of a historic season coming during the summer. A huge piece of the Mustangs’ success was the reliable steps of the state’s leading rusher, Chauncey Williams. “If it wasn’t for 7-on7, Chauncey Williams wouldn’t have been in great shape last year, and he played both sides of the ball,” Carrera said. Williams is gone now, along with the versatile skills of Qu’evella Calhoun, who also played both sides of the ball. Carrera and Meadowcreek are takings steps to replace losses across the board. Quarterback, however, is settled in the hands of junior Quincy Bonner (pictured). “Quincy is a great kid, great student and great leader for us,” Carrera said. “It’s huge to have your quarterback in that leadership position. He works hard on the football field, in the weight room and in the classroom. Everything about Quincy is just a great kid.”

Carrera said he is looking to use Bonner in the running game more, now that the junior quarterback has gotten older and stronger. He’s also feeling more trust in his ability to make decisions throwing the football. At running back, Carrera may lean more toward a committee of two to three solid players rather than saddling up another workhorse as he did with Williams last season. Demarcus Jones is a

senior and figures to see time on both sides of the ball at wide receiver and defensive back. Jones was a first-year starter for Meadowcreek last season, but has contributed since he was a freshman. His tall and lanky frame has earned him the nickname “Bones” from the Meadowcreek coaching staff. “That tells you how big of a kid he is,” Carrera said. “I’ve been really impressed with him this summer.” The Meadowcreek of-

fensive line was critical to the team’s success and several members of the massive front line return this season. James King and Francisco Moreira are two of the pieces returning from Meadowcreek’s heavy offensive front. DEFENSE Meadowcreek’s defense in 2018 may have to cover the graduation losses of the team. “I think we’re doing tremendously well defensive-

ly,” Carrera said. “We’ve picked up some guys in the defensive backfield who came to us during the offseason.” Desmon Jackson returns for his senior season, and Carrera indicated he could be a key piece for the Mustangs’ pass rush. “He’s really had a great summer and great offseason, and we’re looking forward to having him,” Carrera said. Promise Williams will move off of the defensive line back to linebacker in his senior season.

“If all of our pieces are there and all of our pieces are in attendance — and they’re all working and they’re not injured — I feel very good about us defensively,” Carrera said. “I feel like we have a chance to be, for us, great defensively.” Meadowcreek returns junior free safety Alonzo Howard in the defensive backfield and Taquill Langley and Kevin Martin at linebacker. ETC. Meadowcreek is replacing Christopher Linares, last year’s starting placekicker. David Alvarado is a junior who can accumulate experience with hopes that by the end of his junior season, pressure kicks seem like practice kicks. … In four seasons at Meadowcreek, Carrera is already the program’s second-winningest head football coach. He has 11 wins to his name, 10 fewer than the all-time winningest coach, Kevin Maloof (21-22). Maloof is the only Mustang head coach to oversee consecutive winning seasons in 1988, 1989 and 1990. — Taylor Denman

MILL CREEK HAWKS Head coach: Shannon Jarvis (94-64 at Mill Creek, 94-64 overall)

OFFENSE The offensive line, typically a Mill Creek strength, is once again at the forefront. Seniors Jonathan Leech (Virginia commitment), Max Mixon and Ethan Marshall anchor the group as returning starters, while junior Bryce Hancock also got experience in the rotation. The first-team unit, in pounds, will go 275, 275, 255, 290 and 270. “We’re all excited about the offensive line because of the experience from last year coming back,” Mill Creek head coach Shannon Jarvis said. “There was a huge learning curve for a lot of them last year. What we’re counting on this year is leadership from the returning starters. The experience they got will be valuable this year.” Those guys up front will block for a promising group of running backs, including Chancellor LeeParker, Chandler White and Josh Battle. After a big year at slot receiver, Parker Wroble will get plenty of carries, as will Anthony Thompson. “As a staff, we’re very excited about the running back position,” Jarvis said.

“We feel like we have multiple players who will be able to produce.” Jacob Allen, who had 58 tackles and four interceptions as a starter in the secondary last year, has moved to offense, where he will be an important wide receiver alongside Will Teschner and Daviontae Padilla. Ross Cottrell and Ziyad Wiley will man the allimportant tight end positions for an offense that leans heavily on running the ball. Dual-threat quarterback Baxley Harris will do some of that running, but the left-hander also is a capable passer. The senior

and first-time starter will be backed up by promising sophomore M.J. Patterson. “Baxley had a tremendous offseason, a great spring and summer,” Jarvis said. “He continues to improve every day. He’s very athletic, so quarterback runs will be incorporated again this year. He does a little bit of everything well.” DEFENSE A number of new faces will litter the Mill Creek lineup, but the coaches expect the program’s tradition of stout defense to continue. “The biggest thing for

our defense will be the inexperienced piece,” Jarvis said. “It’s kind of gotten to be that way at Mill Creek. It happens every year because we graduate so many players every year.” The defensive front is led by senior Austin RuizVelasco at tackle. The most experienced player on the line will be joined by promising players in Cooper Andolsek, Jae Kim, Brayden Dudley, Carson Howatineck and Reese Jones. “(Ruiz-Velasco) was an all-region player last year, a relentless player,” Jarvis said. “We like the players around him, too. But they’re inexperienced.” Linebacker is a position of strength thanks to proven contributors Myles Jackson and Brock Skinner. Jackson started at defensive end last season, but moves to middle linebacker. Skinner mans one of the outside spots, while R.J. Smith, Noah Faircloth and Hassan Tutson are among the players vying for time at the other outside linebacker position. Ronald Clarke (pictured), a wide receiver last season, takes over as the starter at free safety. Dallas Heyward earned

MOUNTAIN VIEW BEARS Head coach: Rob Kellogg (0-0 at Mountain View, 77-73 overall)

OFFENSE Mountain View enjoyed steady success and gradual improvement for two years under former head coach Nick Bach. The Bears earned their first playoff berth in 2016 and advanced to the second round in 2017. Since Bach has moved on to a different coaching opportunity out of the state, the responsibility to keep the program moving forward falls on Robert Kellogg. It’s not Kellogg’s first time as a head coach, and he said he’s benefited from familiar faces lending some help since his promotion from offensive coordinator. “We were able to keep the nucleus of our staff,” Kellogg said. “We promoted two coordinators who were already in the program. I already had a relationship with the team as offensive coordinator, so they already knew my expectations. As far as transitions go, I think it’s been good.” Graduated quarterback Matthew Edwards will be replaced by senior Luke Hennebaul. “The first thing about Luke is the way he commands both on and off the

field,” Kellogg said. “He brings more physicality to the running phase at quarterback. He was very aware of our system and didn’t really need to learn anything, except what we changed offensively.” Edwards’ favorite target last season is also gone. Malachi Carter, now at Georgia Tech, attracted the bulk of opposing defenses’ attention last

season. Tommy Stewart (pictured) had 500 yards receiving for Mountain View last season, and he’s poised to take the primary reps for the Bears. Stewart’s collegiate offers include the Army and Air Force service academies, Vanderbilt and Kentucky. “We’ll run a lot of what we ran through Malachi with Tommy,” Kellogg

said. “(Stewart) had a great season last year, but it’s easy to get covered up by a guy like Malachi Carter.” Kellogg is impressed by a couple of running backs with returning experience. Davian Criss led the team in carries and rushed for more than 460 yards behind leading rusher Blake Carroll. He’ll be part of a committee with junior

Enoch Walters. The Mountain View offensive line is led by four-year starter Aidan Higgins. DEFENSE Mountain View is transitioning to a four-down defensive front and the Bears have just the piece to feature in their new formation. “I think the line will be the strength of our defense,” Kellogg said. At 6-foot-4, 305 pounds, Mountain View senior lineman Jaelin

Humphries is perhaps the Bears’ most formidable weapon. Humphries racked up 18 tackles for loss last season. The four-star recruit is committed to play for Florida and offenses will have to know where Humphries lines up on every play. “I don’t know what adjectives to use for Jaelin,” Kellogg said. “He had all of the ACC offer him and most of the SEC. He’s a very dynamic player. Kind of a once-in-a-decade type guy.” Mountain View also has a number of returning seniors poised for breakout seasons. Senior defensive back C.J. Stiff appeared in all 12 games for Mountain View and hauled in an interception. Quintin Hyde returns for his senior season at outside linebacker after appearing in nine games last season. ETC. Stepping in to replace place kicker Carlos Ayala, who drilled 9 of 14 field goal attempts is Cameron Drouault. The rising senior will take over both kicking and punting duties for Mountain View. — Taylor Denman

Williams, who threw for 1,728 yards and 16 TDs last season. “He knows everything (about the offense now). He’s not having to think through a lot things (every play). Now he can make changes at the line of scrimmage because he has experience. He doesn’t have to be too mechanical.” The Blue Devils could also get a boost from North Gwinnett transfer Lance Jackson at running back.

DEFENSE Unlike the offense, the Blue Devils’ experience on defense is concentrated up front, with seniors Keyshaun Williford (37 tackles, 8 TFLs, 3 1/2 sacks, 3 QB hurries last year), Jaylin Carter (41 tackles, 11 TFLs, 2 sacks, 2 QB hurries) and Jalen Jackson (12 tackles, 3 TFLs, 2 sacks) returning. “Williford is going to be tough off the edge,” Maloof said. “I think we’ll be solid.

OFFENSE The offense is similar to last year, with several experienced skill players operating behind a less experienced line. The Blue Devils welcome back four different skill players who saw at least some action in the starting lineup, but just one lineman. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, according to head coach Keith Maloof. “It’s OK when you’re inexperienced in one area and experienced in the other,” Maloof said. “If you’re going to be young on the offensive line, you’d better be experienced everywhere else. That’s what we have, so I think it’s going to be a good mix.” While senior Zarritt Mumphery is the only returning starter on the line, young starters help round out a unit with plenty of size and strength. The biggest difference for the Norcross offense from last year is that the most experienced returning skill player is under center. While running back Kameryn Jackson and receivers Christian Sims and Isaiah Wilson all were part-time starters, having senior quarterback Louis Williams (pictured) could open things up for the entire unit. “Having a year under his belt, he really picked it up over the summer,” Maloof said of

we be gigantic? No, but we’ll be able to do what we need to do to keep people off balance.” Perhaps the biggest key for the defense will come from the only returning starter in the back seven. Senior Christian Wright established himself as the latest in a long line of hard-hitting Norcross linebackers, finishing as the team’s second-leading tackler (120) and was second in tackles for loss (19) to go with two sacks, three quarterback hurries and three pass breakups. Maloof is looking to him to

set the example for several talented newcomers in the unit. “He’s got to be,” Maloof said. “We always try to find a solid Mike linebacker, and he’s got to be that guy. He’s the quarterback of the defense.” The secondary will be entirely new, with senior Randy Cochran and junior D’Ron Jumpp manning the corners and senior Amani Johnson and sophomore Josh Graham filling the gaps at safety. ETC. Much has been made about the Blue Devils having to replace a pair of weapons in the kicking game with Jake Camarda and Cole Hanna having moved on to Southeastern Conference college programs. But Maloof is excited about the potential of junior Kellen Grave de Peralta to become the next man up. … As has been customary for the past several seasons, Norcross will once again face quite the gauntlet in its nonregion schedule. The Blue Devils face one defending state champion (North Gwinnett) and two other AAAAAAA playoff teams (Mill Creek and quarterfinalist Archer), in addition to opening the season in the Corky Kell Classic against AAAAAA quarterfinalist Mays at Mercedes Benz Stadium. — David Friedlander

NORTH GWINNETT BULLDOGS

Head coach: Bill Stewart (14-1 at North Gwinnett, 55-27 overall) OFFENSE North Gwinnett spent the spring and summer searching for a replacement quarterback for last year’s replacement quarterback. Cade Fortin started as the offensive signal caller last season at North Gwinnett before an injury, making it necessary for Jimmy Urzua to start for the remainder of the season. J.R. Martin impressed during the Corky Kell 7-on-7 tournament, when North Gwinnett reached the finals. “He’s still competing for the position, but he’s definitely taken more of the reps,” North head coach Bill Stewart said. North Gwinnett returns an Iowa commit at running back, Tyler Goodson (pictured), who led the Bulldogs with more than 1,400 yards rushing last season. “He was explosive last year and I think he’ll be even more explosive,” Stewart said. “He’s a Big Ten kind of back.” Devin Crosby also rushed for more than 600 yards as a sophomore in 2017. North Gwinnett will sorely miss the versatility and efforts of War-

ren Ericson, starting his freshman season at the University of Georgia. Otherwise, North Gwinnett has a decent amount of returning starters. “We have three — Will Hamilton, T.J. Skinner and Justin Bulloch — those guys are all really good,” Stewart said. “They’re all players colleges have had interest in.” Hamilton and Skinner are both power cleaning over 330 pounds. At wide receiver, Harvard commit Garrison Manor joins a small but sly Josh Downs, who was a crucial part of North Gwinnett’s receiving corps as a sophomore. A large senior class that includes

He made a spot start in the 2017 state playoffs against Grayson. He also served as a B-back or “run sniffer” on the offensive side of the ball for North Gwinnett last year. Barrett Carter is a sophomore that figures into North Gwinnett’s starting defense at the sam linebacker position. “He’s very talented, very athletic,” Stewart said. Bryson Scruggs returns to the defensive line with some starting experience in the playoffs. Jared Ivey was part of North Gwinnett’s offensive line rotation as a sophomore, but the 6-foot-5 defensive end will wreak havoc as a regular starter for North Gwinnett this season. Chris Miles, D.J. Cameron, Malik Blue, Spencer Moore and Brayden Rouse are all options on the interior defense line rotation. TITLE BREAKTHROUGH North Gwinnett sealed its first state championship last season with a gamewinning kick against Colquitt County, a perennial power that had won three state championships. The Bulldogs that experienced last year’s freezing

championship game at Tom Robinson Memorial Stadium now know how hard it is to get to that point. But each player knows that it’s possible to return, as well. “They know it’s going to take a ton of work to even get into the picture,” Stewart said. “We’re working to get better every day and know we have to.” North Gwinnett begins the season in MercedesBenz Stadium with the Corky Kell Classic against Brookwood, hosts a non-region game against Norcross and travels to Walton the week before region play begins. ETC. Cameron Clark’s gamewinning field goal will likely not be forgotten for some time at North Gwinnett. Perhaps that alone could have been enough to take back the starting kicking job for North Gwinnett. Fowler is an option for North Gwinnett at punter. … In addition to being an explosive jet sweep threat, Cunningham will resume his role as the Bulldogs’ primary punt and kick returner. — Taylor Denman

PARKVIEW PANTHERS Head coach: Eric Godfree (27-19 at Parkview, 80-69 overall)

OFFENSE Parkview will be young across the board. The Panthers’ offense is moving on without their leaders in all three offensive yardage categories. Quarterback Fred Peyton threw for 2,444 yards in his senior season. Christian Malloy led the Panthers in rushing with 1,534 yards and Miles Marshall was a consistent wide receiver option who racked up 1,118 yards. Fortunately, the Panthers aren’t starting from scratch. Wide receiver Malik Washington (pictured) returns for what he hopes is a healthy senior season. Washington suffered a torn ACL against Lakeside in 2017, which cut his receiving to 517 yards through six games. Washington is back as perhaps Parkview’s most dynamic athlete on offense. He figures to be the Panthers’ No. 1 option at wide receiver and a potential threat in a wildcat-style package. “He’s been fully released,” head coach Eric Godfree said “Really all May and June he was doing rehab. He started practice in the very last week of June. He’s ready to go, and he’s really good.” At running back, Cody Brown took 53 carries as a freshman and projects to garner the majority of the offensive touches to start the 2018 season. Brown is a little-known col-

PEACHTREE RIDGE LIONS Head coach: Reggie Stancil (2-8 at Peachtree Ridge, 2-8 overall)

OFFENSE On the surface, it would appear that the Lions’ offense has quite the learning curve to go through for 2018, with only with only two returning starters and two seniors among the projected starting 11. But coach Reggie Stancil doesn’t necessarily believe that to be the case. One of those returning starters is junior quarterback Tarris Bouie, who got the nod about midway through last season and has plenty of on-the-job training. And even those new faces in the starting lineup got plenty of experience with the new system Stancil and his staff implemented during his first season in practice, as well as during the spring and summer. “Not really,” Stancil said when asked if he expected an early breakingin period for the newcomers. “These are kids who have been in the program for a couple of years now. Our ninth-grade team ran the same thing last year. And last year’s (varsity) team, it was the first time doing the stuff we were

doing. This group, even though it’s new, has been doing it two years now. It’s a little bit more familiar. The other guys had it only half a year, really. “We’ve got some really good kids who work hard, and I feel like our goal is to be better. It’s a work in progress, but I feel good about what we’ve got. We’ve got a lot of depth at running back and on

the offensive line, and our receivers are getting better each day.” Sophomore center Alex Carman is the lone returning starter on the line, while senior Amori Moore and sophomore Brandon Wright lead a deep group of skill players. DEFENSE Stancil’s goal over the summer was to have the

defensive players get bigger and more physical, which precipitated moving some of the unit’s several returning starters around to new positions. That mission appears to be accomplished with senior Trent Brown (pictured) moving up from his safety slot and junior Jalen Lee moving back from the defensive end to join senior returning

starter A.J. Murdock in bolstering the linebacker corps. Stancil is equally pleased with how the defensive line is shaping up, with the return of seniors Dorian Williams and Terrance Harris and junior Mason Huntley to a line that averages 6-foot-2 and 256 pounds across. “One of the things we’ve done is (that) we’ve done a good job of is getting physical,” Stancil said. “We’ve gotten bigger at linebacker, and we’re really athletic at linebacker. That helps us out a lot.

“A lot of (opponents) had a good year running the ball against us last year. That’s one of the reasons we wanted to be bigger at linebacker. But the real strength might be the defensive line. We’ve got as many as seven guys who can play on the defensive line. They’ve had a great preseason.” Senior Dominic Jones should also bring some athleticism and steady leadership to a young Lions secondary. ETC. The Lions will still face a challenging schedule leading up to their always rugged Region 6-AAAAAAA slate, but those initial four games — road games at Gwinnett foes Lanier and Brookwood and home games with Lambert and West Forsyth — will provide somewhat of a different look. “We changed up our schedule,” Stancil said. “We’re playing teams closer to home. … We feel like that helps us. … We’re playing different types of teams, but still good teams.” — David Friedlander

PROVIDENCE CHRISTIAN STORM Head coach: Parker Conley (1-9 at Providence Christian, 1-9 overall)

OFFENSE Providence Christian heads into the 2018 season with a bad news/good news situation on offense. The bad news is that the Storm must find a way to fill some big shoes with the graduation of playmakers Mitchell Miller and David Sloan. The good news is that they will welcome back a good bit of experience sprinkled throughout the lineup, including starting quarterback Hunter Giella (pictured). Add receivers Zach Douglas and Joshua Jones, linemen Connor Mymudes and Casey Luck, and there is a solid base around which second-year coach Parker Conley and his staff can build. “It’s been exciting to see because a lot of guys have had to step up and make plays,” Conley said. “It’s going to hurt to lose guys like Sloan and Miller, but it’s an opportunity for other players to earn playing time. We want the best man to earn the job.” The better news for the Storm is that several newcomers appear to be stepping forward to try to demonstrate they can make plays. Among those is senior receiver Keegan Tranum, who brings plenty of athleticism as demonstrated by his role as standout on the Providence baseball team in the spring.

“Having Keegan come out gives us weapons on both sides of the ball,” Conley said “Having Jones and Douglas back as returners, (Tranum’s presence) takes some of the pressure off them. I’m excited with the way the line has been working and I’m anxious to see who’s able to step up and play week in and week out.” DEFENSE As with the offense, there is some pretty good experience spread out through the defensive unit. What could be an even bigger strength, however, is that

versatility that will allow the Storm to move several different pieces around to fit different situations. For example, Jones moves up to one of the outside linebacker positions after starting at safety last season, while Giella makes the reverse move to come back from his linebacker spot and man one of the corners. Douglas will mix and match at corner and safety to allow Conley and his defensive staff plenty of flexibility. “That was something we didn’t have last year,” Conley said. “If two players were to go down, there was a pretty good

drop. But now we can throw multiple people in multiple positions and make plays on both offense and defense. It allows offensive players to rest and make plays (and not have to play two ways as much).” Colin Style should combine with Jones to help bolster the linebacker corps, and while Mymudes is the only returning starter on a smallish defensive line, Conley has high hopes that portion of the defense will be much deeper than it has ever been. “We want to be able to run different looks out of a variety of formations,” Conley said. “We want to use our speed and intelligence to our advantage.

We’re way past where we were last year in terms of talent. We want our linemen to make plays, but not feel like they’re getting beaten down every play.” ETC. The schedule will sport a bit of a different look with a Region 8-A subdivision this season, including not playing Gwinnett rival Hebron Christian, unless the two teams happen to be matched up when the subregions cross over in the final week of the regular season. The non-region schedule also includes two opponents in Cross Keys and Glascock County which have struggled over the years. It gives Providence a chance to build off the momentum of gaining the first win in the program’s brief history a year ago. But Conley emphasizes that his team is not in a position to take any opponent for granted. “I feel like we’re doing everything possible to try to grow as a program,” Conley said. “As good as Region 8-A is, it’s nice to have some more games we can be competitive in. But we’ve been talking to the guys that just because a game is winnable, that doesn’t mean we will. We’ve got to go take it. Hopefully, it can catapult us forward and help us ultimately through the rest of the season.” — David Friedlander

SHILOH GENERALS Head coach: Ryan Andrews (6-24 at Shiloh, 12-28 overall)

OFFENSE Shiloh head coach Ryan Andrews knows playing in Region 8-AAAAAAA means wins will be hard to come by each year. The Generals were 1-9 last season. Of their nine losses, all of them were to playoff teams. Shiloh’s single win was over Rockdale County. “This year, for the first time since my first year here, the talent gap is not as wide,” Andrews said. “We haven’t closed it completely, but it’s not as drastic as it was the last two years. I think playing a lot of young guys (in the past), you’ll see experience get us through some games.” In his fourth season as Shiloh’s head football coach, Andrews will continue to search for the right combination of players to put the Generals over the playoff hump. Fortunately, the offense has returning starters at several key positions. Shiloh is turning to Vincent Goffney at quarterback to begin the season. Goffney had experience playing the position during his sophomore season when he appeared in nine games.

is going to be a guy who makes a lot of plays for us,” Andrews said. “It’s his second year off a dislocated kneecap.” Andrews said sophomore Antonio Meeks will factor into some of Shiloh’s offensive packages. When the Generals operate with a tight end, Jasheen Davis will play both ways as a blocker and defensive end. On the offensive line, Shiloh has three returning starters. “Experience will not be an issue,” Andrews said. “He’s progressing pretty (bench press) now.” “I think this year you’ll well,” Andrews said. “You Shiloh has three wide see a different product just always make that biggest receivers with starting ex- because of the work in the jump between Year 1 and perience.

loaded county, but to me he’s probably top five in the county,” Andrews said. “This will be his third year starting on varsity. I expect the game to slow down tremendously for him. “Isaac is extremely smart. He understands his strengths and he does a great job playing to his strengths. According to colleges, his height is a deficiency, and it doesn’t affect him. He works hard and he studies.” Kai Maddox is another returning starter for Shiloh, although he will undergo a change in position. Mad-

dox, who had 33 tackles as a safety, is moving to cornerback, his true position according to Andrews. Davis is a 6-foot-1, 215-pound defensive end with offers from Western Kentucky and Florida Atlantic, among others. He had two sacks and seven tackles for loss in his 2017 sophomore season. He’s started since he was a freshman. Andrews pointed out Cevon January returns for Shiloh at outside linebacker. Andrews is particularly excited about the return of Paryce Taylor, who missed all of last season with an injury. “He’s a difference maker,” Andrews said. “He can run, he’s long, athletic and he has the type of attitude as a football player.” ETC. Shiloh placekicker and punter Myles Lewis is one of the fastest players on the team. Lewis, who returns at both specialist positions, runs a 4.52 second 40yard dash. Lue figures to factor in as a returner, with Thomas and Nas Stroud in the rotation as well. — Taylor Denman

SOUTH GWINNETT COMETS Head coach: Steve Davenport (3-8 at South Gwinnett, 68-41 overall)

OFFENSE Head coach Steve Davenport and the Comets have a chance to do something no South Gwinnett football team has done this decade. Should the Comets clinch a third consecutive playoff berth this season, it would be the first three-peat for the program since 2003, when the Comets won their region and reached the quarterfinals in Class AAAAA. But South Gwinnett has spent the spring and summer replacing several losses from a senior-heavy 2017 team. Davenport said Heritage transfer Willie Truitt III stepped in during the offseason and won the quarterback position. He replaces former starter Trevon Woodson, who moved out of the state. Truitt, a junior, is surrounded by a couple of players with several years of experience in South Gwinnett’s program. His primary target is returning starter and senior Adrian Compton, and senior Joshua Anderson will snap the ball to Truitt. In his second season as head coach of the Comets, Davenport and his staff have had the opportunity

and cornerback in their South Gwinnett careers. Both swarmed the ball with 43 and 31 tackles, respectively, in 2017. “We think we’re tremendously good in the secondary,” Davenport said. “(Sery and Woods) had tremendous junior years. Those are certainly two of the kids that we expect big leadership out of on defense.”

to groom the upcoming junior class for breakout seasons in 2018. “We had a lot of seniors last year that we’re losing, but I think the case in most AAAAAAA programs is you always have a good junior class that has been in the program for quite some time and is now looking for the opportunity to be seniors and lead themselves,” Davenport said. Jalen Samuels (pictured) was South Gwinnett’s leading rusher last season as a junior. The 2018 season will be Samuels’ third year as a starter for the Comets. Davenport

expected Samuels to be reliable toting the rock, but he was also impressed by his pass-catching ability last season. “He’s had a really good summer for us, and we expect some leadership from him,” Davenport said. “He led the team in rushing and caught the football better than I imagined he could.” South Gwinnett may feature its running backs more than it did in 2017. DEFENSE South Gwinnett’s unit allowed an average of 24 points per game last sea-

son, skewed by quality opponents such as Grayson, Newton, South Forsyth and Brookwood. That unit was made up of a majority of seniors, some of which went on to play in college. While South Gwinnett had several crucial positions to fill this season, the potential fill-ins are likely to be upperclassmen. “We lost some quality kids,” Davenport said. “Five or six Division I kids on the defensive side of the ball. We’ll be relatively new, but we won’t necessarily be young because we have a lot of juniors that are turning

seniors in those positions.” Kevin Lindsey and Nicolas Grier will be featured on the defensive line. Grier was South Gwinnett’s fifth defensive lineman last season and started four games in place of current Florida State defensive tackle Robert Cooper, who missed time due to an injury. South Gwinnett returns two starting defensive backs from 2017, making the secondary one of the most experienced spots on the field. Joshua Sery and Jaden Woods are seniors who have played safety

ETC. To add to the heap of losses from 2017, both of South Gwinnett’s kicking specialists graduated. Davenport said kicking was one of the biggest holes to fill in the offseason. While South Gwinnett split kicking and punting duties between two players last year, Davenport had a notion that one player could play both positions for the Comets in 2018. … Terell Smith, last year’s kick returner, will continue his football career at Minnesota. Samuels projects to factor into some of the kick and punt return duties, but Davenport is not concerned with finding a fit for the position with the Comets’ wealth of speedy athletes. — Taylor Denman

tem that Banks had. They throw as well as he did at that time as freshman and sophomore.” Whoever wins the starting job should have some weapons to throw to with the return of last year’s second-leading receiver in J.D. Kavel (pictured) (26-390, 15 TDs), as well as the athletic Micah Smith, who should see more action on offense after playing mostly on defense last year. And while junior Josh Aspinwall and sophomore Chris O’Sullivan are the

only two returning starters on the offensive line, the Wolves will be considerably bigger and stronger across the front than they have been in a few years. DEFENSE With only three returning starters on the defensive side as well, the unit will have to rely on athleticism and enthusiasm to make up for its lack of experience. Fortunately, the Wolves appear to have plenty of both, especially among the linebackers, where

Aspinwall moves back after starting on the line last year and Jackson Turner arrives after transferring from Mill Creek. “They definitely move well,” Pridgen said. “Jackson Turner came to us from Mill Creek. He’s a big lacrosse player and wrestler, and as I’m learning as we’ve put on pads, he really packs a punch. That’s really the way Josh played for us last year, too. He played physical, but we needed him at defensive line. So we’ve moved him back

OFFENSE The Wolves must replace eight starters from last season’s Class A-Private state playoff team and the most important is the one created by the graduation of AllCounty quarterback Banks Ramsey, who threw for over 7,800 yards and 83 TDs in his four years as the starter. The good news is that there are two talented youngsters who are poised to be the heir apparent — sophomore Andrew Van Wie, who was 24 of 50 for 205 yards in limited action in relief of Ramsey last season, and incoming freshman J.C. French. “Andrew was with us last year as a freshman,” Wesleyan coach Franklin Pridgen said. “He was a backup and played JV and showed a lot of promise. … J.C. French is a rising freshman, which usually scares a lot of people. But he has a fantastic arm and good mechanics, and he’s more mature than his age indicates. “(French) doesn’t have Banks’ size. Neither of them do, and they really shouldn’t be compared to Banks in that respect. But they certainly have the understanding of our sys-

(this year).” Smith and Kavel both return to man the corners in the secondary, which should give the Wolves plenty of flexibility as a young defensive line, led by sophomore powerhouse Tanner Bivins, matures. “They give us a lot of freedom to play man with those guys confidently and be more aggressive up front with our blitzing,” Pridgen said of his bookend corners. “When you’ve got cornerbacks who can pretty much lock down anybody you’re going to play, you can

do a lot of things with the other nine guys. It’s a real luxury. It gives us a chance to be very aggressive on defense.” ETC. Wesleyan’s schedule will sport a much different look for 2018 than in recent past. The Wolves will open the season at Meadowcreek, which is coming off a historic season that included a state playoff berth in Class AAAAAAA. And while they played Grayson when that powerhouse program first opened as a Class AAA team in the early 2000s, it will be the first time the Wolves have played an opponent from the state’s largest classification. With defending Class A-Private runner-up Prince Avenue also on the non-region slate and the usual Region 5-A docket that includes GHSA newcomer Trinity Christian, it makes for a diverse schedule with plenty of new opponents. It will also be a challenging one, especially early, with four of the Wolves’ first five games on the road. — David Friedlander

THIS IS MORE THAN JUST AN ATHLETE. This is Colby—a son, a star running back and a straight A student who is looking forward to starting college next Fall. His parents trust GMC Sports Medicine, which includes the most sports medicine fellowship-trained doctors in Georgia, as well as the groundbreaking GMC Concussion Institute. With a member of the state’s largest team of certified athletic trainers placed directly in his school, they are confident that GMC is providing world class care right there where Colby needs it. Colby’s goal is to make this season a memorable one. At Gwinnett Medical Center, we make that possible.

He’s more than just a patient. To schedule an appointment for a baseline concussion test, call the Concussion Institute at 678-312-7880.
