Blessed Trinity returns bulk of championship roster, Cartersville has new sheriff in town

Last season, Class AAAA proved to be one of the most intriguing classifications in the entire state. Unstoppable Cartersville and the No. 1 ranked prospect in the entire country (Quarterback Trevor Lawrence) were stunned by Blessed Trinity in the second round of the state playoffs. Then the Titans completed the championship run by avenging a regular season loss to Marist on the War Eagles home field after snow shut down Mercedes-Benz Stadium and pushed the meeting back a week.

Still, the storylines circulating before this upcoming season are proving to be even more interesting. Blessed Trinity returns nearly its entire roster from last year, but the addition of brand new Denmark High School and Flowery Branch from Class AAAAA to Region 7, will give them arguably the toughest conference in the classification.

Additionally, Cartersville has another promising quarterback stepping in for two-time state champion Lawrence. 6-foot-3 rising junior Tee Webb played in nine games last year, as the Purple Hurricanes crushed most of their opponents. He has already been offered by Louisville, Rutgers and Mercer, even though he won’t be starting in his first game until Cartersville’s season opener against Allatoona.

Blessed Trinity, Cartersville and Woodward Academy will represent Class AAAA in this summer’s Corky Kell 7-on-7 tournament on June 18.

This is what the field looks like: Alpharetta, Archer, Blessed Trinity, Brookwood, Buford, Carrollton, Cartersville, Centennial, Central Gwinnett, Cherokee, Collins Hill, Colquitt County, Forsyth Central, Gainesville, Grayson, Johns Creek, Kell, Lanier, Lee County, Marietta, Mays, McEachern, Mill Creek, Milton, Monroe Area, Norcross, North Forsyth, North Gwinnett, Peachtree Ridge, Roswell, South Forsyth, Tucker, Walton, West Forsyth, Woodward Academy
