Flowery Branch junior quarterback Connor Shaw picked up an official scholarship offer from South Carolina on Wednesday. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and quarterback coach G.A. Mangus flew in to Gainesville and drove down to Flowery Branch to meet with Shaw and his father and Falcons coach Lee Shaw. Connor now has official scholarship offers from the Gamecocks, Georgia Tech and Stanford. Shaw had quite an impressive junior season leading Flowery Branch to the Class AAA state title game.

From staff reports
FLOWERY BRANCH - While Flowery Branch High School will be located down the street on Spout Springs Road at the start of the 2009 school year, the Falcons will remain at home in Class AAA and Region 7. At least for one more year.
With a large lead quickly dwindling, Lumpkin County coach Dustin Allen went with his ace Cody Waters earlier than he had hoped Tuesday against East Hall. The right-handed senior responded with 5 2/3 innings of steady work in long-relief duty, allowed only one run and led the Indians (14-8, 11-5 Region 7-AAA) to an 11-6 win in Gainesville.
