At the end of week 5 the Hall County football players have created the following power ratings. As the season goes on I take into consideration the following criteria: Head-to-head competitions, record, ratio of points scored vs. points allowed and opponents win/loss percentage. This week we rated the teams on the ratio of points scored against points allowed.

Buford's Storm Johnson has big-play ability. The 6-foot-1, 202-pound junior running back has proven that time and again: 11.5 yards per carry this season, a 96-yard jaunt against Lovett, etc., etc, etc.
I'll bet that Friday night is going to provide the most compelling action in the high school football regular season. Both sides of Region 7-AAA will start taking shape with the outcome of this week's games. Region 8-AA will also see an early front-runner for the title hunt emerge.
Dawson County's Madison Caldwell shot a 73 to win the Class AAA girls golf individual state title Monday at Horseshoe Bend in Roswell. Caldwell beat out second place finisher Clara Halsey of Sonoraville. The Dawson County girls finished seventh as a team with a score of 298. In addition to Caldwell's 73, Sydney Morgan shot a 103 and Hannah McConnell shot a 122 for the Lady Tigers. The Dawson County boys shot a 343 to finish seventh at the state tournament. David Ford led the way with an 81.
COLUMBUS – The scores were good for Gainesville's boys, especially when you consider the fast greens and humid air pressing golfers during the Class AAAAA championship meet at the Country Club of Columbus.
Flowery Branch's Jake Shewbert added to his strong performance at the Georgia Olympics, earning a fourth-place spot in the 3200 race with a time of 9 minutes, 44.1 seconds at Jefferson Memorial. Joining him in the race for the Falcons, Grant O'Callaghan was ninth (9:53.29).
