Twiggs wins again
OK, it’s time to really start taking Twiggs County seriously. Really seriously. For the second consecutive week, the Cobras dispatched of one of the top Macon-area private schools. Last week it was First Presbyterian Day, 29-17, this week Twiggs, ranked No. 9 in the public poll, blanked Stratford Academy, ranked No. 6 in the private poll, 21-0, in The Pit in Jeffersonville. It was the first time the Eagles (4-2, 1-1 in Region 7-Division A) had been shut out since 2010, when the program was competing in the Georgia Independent Schools Association. Once again, RB/LB Ja’Mon Height led the charge with 166 yards rushing on 24 carries and a touchdown. The bruising senior is the key to the Cobras’ winning formula – a powerful running game and stingy defense. This is exactly what will be needed in order to matchup against the likes of No. 1 Clinch County, No. 2 Macon County, No. 3 Emanuel County Institute and No. 4 Manchester.
