The Eagles Nest 2014 Milton High School

What a beautiful night for football and Milton High School is a beautiful venue and friendly atmosphere for fans to come out and support their teams.  The contest, however, was not so pretty.  The Trojans marched into Eagle Stadium and (for a couple of early play series) made it seem like it would be a fight!  Unfortunately, for the Trojans, it came apart quickly and they trailed 28 – 0 at the half.

Milton Celebrates #33 Micco Brisker

The Trojans were hoping to win this battle and obtain their first win of the year, but now find themselves at 0 – 5 and 0 – 3 in Region 5 AAAAAA. It was all Milton in every phase of the game, the only team this season to hold the Trojan’s high powered offense from scoring.  Milton’s dominance was demonstrated with RB #33 Micco Brisker having another stellar night, scoring on a 24-yard and 56-yard run (running through and around Lassiter tacklers) and with a great QB performance by #11 Austin McLeod (who ran and threw the ball seemingly at will), eluding pursuit and keeping plays alive with his feet.

#16 Mitchell Wasson #5 Russell Aarons

Lassiter punter #16 Mitchell Wasson had a busy night and did an amazing job under pressure when Lassiter frequently was forced to give the ball up on fourth down.  Russell Aarons, who came into this game leading Region 5 AAAAAA in passing, ran for his life most of the night and was thwarted by an interception, several dropped passes, and the lack of an efficient run game to keep the defense honest.

Lassiter loses heartbreaker to Milton

The old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words …” sums up a heartbreaker for what is considered a very talented Trojan team.


GHSA News Online congratulates the Milton Eagles on a “Big” win and wishes the Trojans success in future games.  Rosters for both teams are provided below in support for these two great Region 5 AAAAAA teams!

Trojans attack “Mpire” Tomorrow

If you are a fan of High School Football, you would know that at Milton they are dedicated and committed to “Building an Mpire” – a football empire.  The Milton Eagles are well on their way to doing just that!  Milton is a very good team and a loss last week to the Roswell Hornets makes them very dangerous.  Milton is very well coached by former Pope HS Asst. Head Coach, Defensive Coordinator, and Strength/Conditioning Coach, Tony Howie DeCristofaro (bio HERE).

The men of Troy “Trojans”, march into the Eagles nest tomorrow night for a conference game and are ready for battle.  Ancient history and legend places great fear on the mention of the word “Trojan” and a contest between the Eagles and the Trojans (coached by Jep Irwin bio Here) will be a close battle in the war for Regional 5 AAAAAA supremacy.

Roswell came into Milton as a 13 point underdog and left the victor Friday night, in a great example of High School Football. Milton came into the game highly ranked #3 in some polls and only as low as #6 in others. No stats can accurately reflect the intensity of this game and it lived up to being part of “The Great American Rivalry Series“.

In a see saw game, Milton lead 10 – 0 at the end of the first quarter at The Eagles Nest. The Eagles put up a very consistent offensive campaign scoring 7 points in each of the next three quarters and lead 31 – 26 with 3:41 left on the clock. Trailing throughout the night, the Hornets rallied with the help of #1 Sheldon Evans,who had 140 yards on 15 carries & 2 TD’s to cap off his “Player-of-the-Game” performance.

Late in the fourth Milton lead the game, but Roswell mounted a final drive that featured QB #7 James Whitaker (who completed 18 of 39 passes for 192 yards and three TD’s) connecting with #5 Mechane Slade, in a spectacular, juggling / concentration catch in the end-zone to win the game (Slade had 8 catches for 115 yards and two TD’s).

Milton was impressive in their loss, with #33 Micco Brisker having an stellar night with three TD’s that included a 65 yard run. Leading up to last Friday, Milton was off to a fast start with a 24 – 0 shutout of defending champion Norcross. Roswell is now 4 – 1 for the season joining Etowah and Woodstock with unblemished records in Region 5 AAAAAA.

Many people don’t know it, but this Friday’s game between the Roswell Hornets and the Milton Eagles promises to be one of the best games of the season and is part of a very highly touted series called The Great American Rivalry.

Great_American_Rivalry_2014

Milton is lead by former Pope HS Asst. Head Coach, Defensive Coordinator, and Strength/Conditioning Coach, Tony Howie DeCristofaro (bio) who has an impressive 107- 52 record..  Roswell is lead by Coach John Ford (bio), who already has shown he may become the winningest Roswell coach in recent memory.

Both teams are loaded with talent, with the Hornets fresh off beating (formerly undefeated) Walton 27 – 15 in a Region 5 AAAAAA battle last week.  Last week, Milton contested against powerhouse and former State Champ Norcross, holding them scoreless  27 – 0.

Woodstock Wins at The Frank

September 13 2014
Missy Koslowski, GHSA News

If you listen to Woodstock Coach Brent Budde, he will say that he was proud of the way his team fought last night.  The same can be said of Lassiter Coach Jep Irwin.

The Trojans (0-4, 0-2 Region 5 AAAAAA) fell behind early, but kept fighting and cut the lead to 35-21 before halftime. Before last night, no team had scored a touchdown against the Wolverine defense (now 4-0, 2-0 Region 5AAAAAA), but River Ridge, Johns Creek and Wheeler certainly tried. River Ridge was the only one of the three to manage a touchdown, and that came on a kickoff return. The Trojans certainly spoiled that record.

Lassiter forced three Woodstock fumbles, including one on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. Lassiter turned the three turnovers into 14 points and took a 42-38 lead with 8:15 to play in the game.  Outstanding plays were made by #33 Ozi Orjioke, #25 Ben Mostellar (who recovered a fumble and ran it back for 80 yards), #48 Kory Gildea (who recovered a fumble which resulted in a TD), #8 Micah Grigsby, #85 Cole Taylor (shown above in picture provided by MDJ), #20 Mason Waters, # 2 Taz Holt, #24 Tanner Plemmons, and #42 Khari Johnson.  QB Russell Aarons excited the crowd when, after taking the snap – passed to #87 Pearson VanHorn who then threw it back to him for a TD.

The Woodstock Wolverines have a strong group of seniors led by QB, Justin Agner.  Across the board, the Wolverines executed a solid game-plan with great offensive blocking, solid running back performance, and consistent production from their receiver group.

Congrats to the Wolverines for a GREAT game and an unblemished record, joining Lassiter in an off week when they both return 9/26/14 (where Woodstock plays Etowah and Lassiter travels to Milton).

As we get ready to enjoy another week of High School Sports, please reflect on the events that transpired 13 years ago and turn to your family, friends, and co-workers and be glad we live in a country that affords us this opportunity.

Remember, every day strife and troubles pale in comparison to the way it could be or what might have been.

When you hear the familiar, “Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light, what so proudly we hailed …”, tomorrow night and look at the flag – let’s be especially thankful for the country we live in and the protection’s and privaledges our flag provides.

As the young men take the field,  they do so in their first game following this anniversary and represent proudly, their school, their team, and their way-of-life!
