Region 5 AAAAAA football a growing “force” in Georgia High School football
October 6, 2015 Missy Koslowski, GHSA News
At this point in the season, we start to see the strength of the teams and how they fair against each other in region play.
At the top is Roswell, who is 5 – 0 and ranked 3rd overall AAAAAA in the Maxwell Rankings. Having beat Walton last week, Roswell has a balanced attack with both their passing and running from QB Quintarious Neely (a Lovejoy transfer) and Sheldon Evans a running back that transferred in from Walton a few years back.
Walton and Etowah are both 5 -1 and they both face regional opponents with Etowah at Milton and Walton at Pope this week.
Rounding out the rest of Region 5 AAAAAA is Lassiter, who is 3 – 3 and coming off a 4rth quarter, last minute drive by Senior QB Cooper Cross #18 (who came off the bench to lead his team to the victory). Lassiter started the season strong, by beating Hillgrove and local rival Kell. In their game last week at Woodstock, the team showed “heart” utilizing receivers Cole Taylor #85, Dawson Brown #3 and Clark Kent #88 to put together just enough offense to get Mitchell Wasson #16 close enough for a field goal to pull ahead with under a minute left. Lassiter coach, Jep Irwin has a talented team and has a week off before playing Etowah on 10/16/15.
