Many people don’t know it, but this Friday’s game between the Roswell Hornets and the Lassiter Trojan’s re-unites three players who played together as 8th graders on the phenomenal Walton Raider team that kicked everyone’s football butt that year!  Justin Ellis #87, Sheldon Evans #1 of Roswell, and #88 Clark Kent of Lassiter re-unite Friday night, but now on opposite sides of the ball. Sheldon Evans of the Hornets leads all Region 5 AAAAAA rushers with almost 1200 yards / averaging almost 7 yards a carry and #87 Justin Ellis (who is an outstanding athlete in his own right and played QB at Walton) is now a force on defense. Clark Kent of Lassiter is a talented Wide Receiver and is always a highlight film when he is on the field!

Folks, although Lassiter has had it’s struggles, Russell Aarons #5 of Lassiter leads all Cobb County QB’s in passing (only a couple of yards short of leading all of Region 5 AAAAAA) and Pearson Van Horn #87 leads Cobb County in reception yards and is second only to Andrew Harris of Cherokee in Region 5 AAAAAA!

The Woodstock Wolverines came onto sacred Cherokee territory on Homecoming Friday night and were defeated 42 -21.  On what was looking like a potentially rainy night, the Warriors had a beautiful night for Homecoming and for football!

20141003-07274415958  20141003-20204715104

Woodstock scored in all quarters except the third and made this a hard-fought contest.  They find themselves at 4 – 1 overall and 3 – 1 in Region 5 AAAAAA, with Cherokee at 5 – 1 and 3 – 1 in Region 5 AAAAAA.

Cherokee coach Josh Shaw must have realized that this was more than Homecoming and the importance of this game.  The Coach must have found the right words to motivate his team.

The Wolverines came into Cherokee Territory as the favorite to win and were encouraged when the Warriors allow them to score on the opening drive on a 12 – yard pass from #3 Justin Agner to #10 Josh Loud.

20141003-19445214769 (2)  20141003-19550914841 (1)

The Warriors would not be denied and Cherokee QB #4 Spencer Ashley put up almost 450 yards in passing, with #10 Andrew Harris converting two to touchdowns and one on an 88 yard run after the catch on 3rd and 15.  Harris had an impressive game with 11 catches for 204 yards.

Check-out the maxprepsGame Log (Here). 

Cherokee (5-1, 3-1) now joins Woodstock (4-1, 3-1) in whats essentially a four-way tie for the region lead, alongside two other one-loss region teams Milton, which beat Etowah on Friday, and Roswell, which was upset by Wheeler.  Region 5 AAAAAA is shaping up to be a game-by-game and week-by-week must see affair with Walton’s forfeits and the results of this week!

Missy Koslowski, GHSA News Online

This Friday night, Region 5 AAAAAA lights up with a highly anticipated match-up between two Eagle teams when Etowah hosts Milton – Eagles against Eagles!

Milton is very well coached by former Pope HS Asst. Head Coach, Defensive Coordinator, and Strength/Conditioning Coach,Tony Howie DeCristofaro (bio HERE).

Etowah Head Coach, Dave Svehla (bio HERE) has built a strong Region 5 contender and was formerly at El Paso Gridley High School in Illinois.

The Milton “Mpire” battled the Trojans of Lassiter last week and handed them a devastating loss 56 – 0, dominating every phase of the game and holding a high-powered run and pass offense to their first 0 point game!  Etowah’s “Empire” comes out of a major battle with Cherokee County rival Woodstock where they barely lost in double-overtime 47 – 44.

Both these teams have a shot at Region 5 AAAAAA.  Woodstock is 5-0 overall and atop the region at 3-0. Trailing by a half-game is Roswell, which is 2-0 in the region and one of three teams yet to play its third game. Walton, Cherokee and Etowah are all 2-1. Etowah holds a tiebreaker over Cherokee because of a head-to-head win, but it has not played Walton.

This IS a “Must-See” game if you are a TRUE High School Football Fan!

Come out and support your TEAM – Milton Eagles, Etowah Eagles – Football Fans!

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!
