Flowery Branch players starting to look forward

FLOWERY BRANCH - Flowery Branch senior defensive end Izaan Cross resisted the temptation of letting the lure of college recruiting get in the way of his final season of high school football. It seems to have panned out pretty well for Cross, who holds scholarship offers from some of the biggest Division I schools in the country, and who was a driving force for the Falcons' run to the state title game.

Flowery Branch's title bid falls short in 28-14 loss

ATLANTA – Flowery Branch's football team was hoping to catch lightning in a bottle one more time during its incredible postseason run.

Flowery Branch football running down a dream

FLOWERY BRANCH - Flowery Branch's offense puts up numbers on the ground that would earn the respect of an old school wing-T coach. The Falcons (11-2) have two bruising running backs and a shifty junior quarterback, Connor Shaw, that is adept at tucking it in and running with the football.
