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!
THROWBACK (Born-to-Compete VIDEO):

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!
