Top 10 games of Week 7

Bremen at Callaway

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Callaway Stadium, LaGrange

Records, rankings: Bremen is 4-0 overall, 0-0 in Region 5-AA and No. 4; Callaway is 4-1, 1-0 and No. 2.

Last meeting: Callaway won 56-39 in 1999.

Things to know: These are the only ranked teams in Region 5, although 2017 state semifinalist Heard County remains a major contender. Callaway's lone defeat was against No. 5 Troup of Class AAAA. Callaway's style is what one would expect from a team whose leading rusher is called Tank and whose top recruit is 340 pounds. Cartavious "Tank" Bigsy is actually only 5-11, 175 pounds, but the four-star recruit leads a physical, run-oriented attack with 654 yards rushing and seven touchdowns on 79 carries. OL Keiondre Jones is the massive one. He is committed to Auburn. Also outstanding on Callaway's front line are Tate Johnson (several D-I offers) and Keshawn Cameron. Junior QB Jacob Freeman is another D-I recruit (as a wide receiver). He has rushed for 286 yards on 36 carries. Bremen is more balanced. RB Tyran Dobbs has rushed for 443 yards. QB Wade Cartwright has thrown for 462 yards. Jason Houston has 226 yards receiving and four touchdowns. The defense, led by linebackers Kade Berry (nine tackles for losses), Stephen McLain (six tackles for losses) and Campbell Sweatt (four TFL), is allowing just 6.5 points per game.

Centennial at Alpharetta 

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Raider Stadium, Alpharetta

Records, rankings: Centennial is 2-2 overall, 2-0 in Region 7-AAAAAA and unranked; Alpharetta is 3-1, 2-0 and No. 7.

Last meeting: Alpharetta won 34-31 in 2017.

Things to know: Alpharetta and Centennial were the top two teams in 7-AAAAAA last year, and Alpharetta's three-point victory when they met in the region opener ultimately decided the region title, as neither lost another regular-season game. The winner Friday's game will be tied for first place with 2016 region champ Johns Creek, which has the week off. Centennial averages 336.0 yards passing and 157.5 rushing. QB Max Brosmer is 86-of-141 passing for 1,344 yards and 10 touchdowns and has rushed for 188 yards. The top receivers are Drake Mason (19 catches, 335 yards, three TDs) and Richard Shaw (23-321-0). The Knights ran for a season-high 300 yards in a 69-35 victory against Cambridge last week. Cal Dickie had 185 of them on 22 carries and has a team-leading 381 yards for the season. Alpharetta's balanced offense averages 142.0 yards rushing and 140.8 passing. QBs Bradley Rowlinson and Will Gerdes are a combined 41-of-72 passing for 563 yards and five touchdowns. Joshua Grant, with 11 catches for 105 yards, is the only player with more than eight receptions. Kevin Watkins is the leading rusher with 279 yards and four TDs on 47 carries.

Charlton County at Irwin County 

When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Indian Field, Ocilla

Records, rankings: Charlton County is 4-1 overall, 2-0 in Region 2-A and No. 5 in Class A public; Irwin County is 5-0, 2-0 and No. 1.

Last meeting: Irwin County won 48-27 in 2017.

Things to know: Irwin County, the Class A public-school runner-up last year, and Charlton County are among three ranked teams in Region 2-A. The other is No. 2 Clinch County, which has lost to Irwin. Irwin has beaten Charlton the past two seasons, neither game particularly close. Irwin's D.J. Lundy, a junior with SEC offers, is having an all-state season with 638 yards rushing on just 55 carries. But Irwin's defense is unsung. It held both Clinch County and Fitzgerald to less than 180 yards of total offense. Clinch was 0-for-9 passing. Charlton's best player is Raykwon Anderson, an N.C. State pledge as a wide receiver. Anderson was moved to quarterback this season. He's 35-of-72 passing for 474 yards and eight touchdowns. He's the team's leading rusher with 390 yards while averaging 7.5 yards per carry. WR/KR/DB Seaquon Clark has 471 all-purpose yards and averages 17.4 yards per touch. He has 18 tackles on defense. DE Daniel Mack has seven sacks.

Last meeting: Greater Atlanta Christian won 56-6 in 2017.

Things to know: North Hall is one of two 5-0 teams in the region. The other is 10th-ranked Dawson County. But Greater Atlanta Christian, with losses to Westminster and Prestonwood Christian of Texas, remains heavily favored to win a fifth consecutive region title. North Hall, 1-4 at this time a year ago, is vastly improved. North Hall averages 309.0 yards rushing per game and has attempted only 27 passes. Daniel Jackson, with 423, leads five North Hall rushers with at least 200 yards rushing. Jackson also has 185 of the team's 287 yards receiving and scored 11 touchdowns. QB David Speavey has rushed for 276 yards and scored eight touchdowns. GAC has a variety of playmakers in a balanced offense. QB Josh Rose has thrown for 746 yards and rushed for 312. QB Jackson Hardy, more of a pocket passer, has thrown for 329 yards. The leading rusher is Montae Bailey (346 yards), and the leading receivers are Ty James (459 yards, five touchdowns) and Jake Floyd (378 yards, four TDs). Chris Hinton, a defensive end committed to Michigan, has five sacks. OL Myles Hinton, a five star recruit in the 2020 class, is back after missing the first four games with an injury.

Last meeting: Hapeville Charter won 35-0 in 2017.

Things to know: Hapeville Charter and Douglass are the only remaining unbeaten teams in 6-AA, and the winner is likely to win the region title. Hapeville is the defending state champion and hasn't lost to a Georgia team since the 2016 state semifinals (Fitzgerald). Douglass is 5-0 for the first time since 2005 and seeking its first region title since 2004. These are two of the three highest-scoring teams in Class AA. Hapeville is first at 49.0, and Douglass is third at 43.8. Both teams average a little more than 300 yards per game, but Hapeville is the more balanced of the two. Marcus Carroll is the Hornets' leading rusher with 367 yards and 10 touchdowns on 40 carries (9.2 ypc). He had 114 yards and three TDs on seven carries in a 63-0 victory over McNair last week. Jeremy Stephens is 19-of-27 passing for 368 yards and four TDs. Hapeville has allowed just three points, which came in a 33-3 victory over then-No. 2 Heard County on Aug. 31. Douglass relies on a running game led by QB Juan Powell, an East Carolina commit who has rushed for 850 yards and 13 TDs on 75 carries. Powell has completed only seven passes (in 17 attempts), but four went for touchdowns. Oscar Wyatt has rushed for 265 yards.

Jefferson County has won five region titles (most recently in 2015) and made 16 consecutive playoff appearances. Hephzibah, which dropped down from Class AAAA this season, has never won a region title. The Rebels have made the playoffs just four times (most recently in 2014) in their 65-year history.

Last meeting: Troup won 71-16 in 2017.

Things to know: The 2017 game between these two marked the most lopsided defeat in Sandy Creek history and signaled a rare down year for the Patriots, who finished 5-5, the first non-winning campaign since 2001.
