“We wanted to put the ball in our best players’ hands. I think it will help us be a good offensive team. Once we can spread things out, we can expand the field vertically.” -- Calvary Day head coach Mark Stroud said to the Savannah Morning News following his team’s 47-14 beat down of GISA foe Frederica Academy of St. Simons. The Cavs led 34-0 at halftime and never looked back.
“To me, it was fun. You plan for Commerce which is a great game for us. The kids were kind of let down because they were looking forward to that game. They had to pick themselves back up, we coached through that. You get to do two game plans. It was a lot of work in one night, but it was fun.” -- Athens Academy coach Josh Alexander said to the Athens Banner Herald, on his team quickly picking up a game against August Christian of the South Carolina Independent Schools Association, after Commerce had to cancel due to COVID-19 protocols. The Spartans won the game, 42-27, to improve to 2-1.
“We got our butts kicked up front. Hats off to Trion. They did a good job. They’re a tough out, especially in Single-A football. They have a lot of good kids. We got out of character and started opening our mouths, and that is not how we’re going to be or how we’re going to respond. If you’re getting your butts kicked, you better learn how to shut up and take it.” -- Class 2A Model head coach Jeff Hunnicutt said of Trion (2-0) to the Rome Tribune, after the Bulldogs beat up his Blue Devils, 28-7. It was Trion’s second win this season over a team from Class 2A, after a win over 48-13 win over Coosa the previous week.
