On a wet night where a constant mist kept fans searching for cover, the Oglethorpe County Patriots (1-7, 0-7 Region 8-AA) were constantly searching for Riverside Military Academy's Julian Suber, who has lined up at various positions this season and even scored touchdowns by four different methods in a game earlier this season (passing, rushing, receiving, and returning).

A North Hall and Chestatee game typifies what high school football is all about. A huge part of this rivalry is the fact that Chestatee peeled off its student body from what used to be part of the North Hall district.
At the end of Week 8 the Hall County football players have created the following power ratings. As the season goes on I take into consideration the following criteria: 1) head to head competitions; 2) win/loss record; 3) ratio of points scored vs. points allowed; 4) opponents win/loss percentage. In this week we rated the teams on the ratio of points scored against points allowed.

Dawson County high senior Seth Stowers was named Academic Athlete of the Week by Prep Sports Plus. Stowers, who plays basketball, soccer, cross country for the Tigers, is ranked seventh in his class with a 97.29 grade point average and is a three-time class president.
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.
