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.
Last week Milton utilized stand-out players and to generate over 500 yards of offense against Lassiter. Both these teams have demonstrated strong Offenses and Defenses, although Etowah allowed 47 points last week to Woodstock.
