*Mother Nature strikes: Bad weather had an impact on several AAAAAA teams Friday. Tucker's scheduled meeting with Archer at Coolray Field in the Corky Kell Classic was postponed after a lightning delay and a rainstorm that left the field unplayable. The teams played Saturday at Hallford Stadium in DeKalb County, with Archer winning 41-7. Winder-Barrow's scheduled game in Athens got pushed back a day, and Clarke Central won 44-36 Saturday. Lakeside-Evans' game at Midland Valley, S.C., was canceled altogether.
*Region 1 still rolling: Region 1, which has supplied three consecutive champions (and four of the past five) in AAAAAA, continued to flex its muscles in Week 1. Two-time defending champion Lee County, Coffee, Northside-Warner Robins, Valdosta and Houston County had easy times in posting a 5-0 record. The five teams' average margin of victory was 31.4 points, and no game was closer than Coffee's 38-21 victory over Brunswick. Four Region 1 teams (all but Houston County) are ranked in the top five this week.
