HUGHES VS. GAINESVILLE CLASS 6A SKINNY

Class 6A joins Class A Division I as the only championship matchups this season that will stage two unbeaten opponents and there are plenty of other intriguing storylines between Hughes and Gainesville that surround their first-ever meeting. Gainesville is the lone finalist that did not make a playoff ap pearance in 2021 and Hughes is returning to the finals after a last-minute loss to Buford. The Red Elephants are also the only team to reach the champion ship under a first-year head coach. Both teams have an opportunity to go 15-0 for the first time. Gainesville won its first and only state crown in 2012 and Hughes is one win away from its first-ever crown.

BENEDICTINE VS. CEDARTOWN

CLASS 4A SKINNY

Benedictine’s two losses this season came to Christopher Columbus (FL) and Ware County and the Cadets have actually not suffered a single loss within their classification since the 2020 semifinals. Cedartown is perfect within the classification this season and are one win away from clinching its first-ever state title and flawless campaign. Cedartown’s senior-led core has helped drive one of the most potent rushing attacks in the state this season and the Cadets have maintained championship form with multiple contributors that have appeared in each of the last two past playoff runs. Cedartown and Bene dictine have each faced six top-10 opponents previously this season and come in battle-tested and prepared for an epic first-ever meeting.

Familiar foes highlight the 3A title matchup as Region 5 mates Cedar Grove and Sandy Creek will meet for the second time this season and ‘third’ time overall. In 2020, the regular season meeting was canceled and in 2021, Sandy Creek won 40-35 in the regular season before Cedar Grove ran the table in the playoffs to win the title. This season, Cedar Grove defeated Sandy Creek 49-34 on October 21. Cedar Grove enters the game having won four state titles since 2016, including back-to-back championships in 2018 and 2019. John Adams took over the program in 2021 and led the Saints to a state champion ship. Sandy Creek is trying for the team’s fourth title after winning in 2009, 2010 and 2012.

THOMSON VS. FITZGERALD

CLASS 2A SKINNY

Two of the oldest football programs will meet in the 2A title game with Fitzgerald playing football since 1908 and Thomson since 1912. Fitzgerald’s the de fending champion and wants the team’s third state title while Thomson is trying for the team’s fifth title. Fitzgerald first won a state championship in 1948 in coach Earl Wheby’s only season at the helm. Thomson won in back-to-back seasons in 1967-68 under head coaches Paul Leroy (67) and Joe Compton (68). The Bulldogs did it again in 1984-85 under head coach Luther Welsh, who coached until 1990 and then retook the job in 2000 before the 2002 title. Since 2015, Fitzgerald has been to title games in 2015, 2016 and 2020 before finally punching through last year.

SCHLEY COUNTY VS. BOWDON

CLASS A DIVISION 2 - SKINNY

Bowdon is in the state finals for the first time since 2001 and is currently on a 12-game win streak. The Red Devils have also surpassed 10+ wins in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2004-2005. Bowdon is averaging 36 points per game this year as it seeks out its third state title in program history. Schley County went on a streak of five consecutive games with over 50 points scored until last week in the semifinals when the Wildcats bested Johnson County 35-6. In 2020, Schley County failed to make it to the playoffs, and just two years later the Wildcats had their best start in school history and are one win away from their first title in school history.
