After hearing about Chestatee assistant basketball coach Shumbe Hunter's mother dying recently, the War Eagles made a tribute for their coach - a 66-62 win against Class AAA's ninth-ranked Gainesville on Tuesday.
Playing football at Flowery Branch in the postseason means packing some patience for a long road trip. It means playing in a hostile environment. And it means entering as the lower seeded of two teams.
The Gainesville Red Elephants will take to the road next week for the first time in almost a month when they meet Carver-Columbus in the quarterfinals of the Class AAA state football playoffs. Since both teams are their regions No. 1 seeds, the site was determined by a coin flip Saturday.
