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.
They can be creative, loud and supportive. They can be expressive, humorous and sometimes borderline offensive. And while they are not actually allowed to step foot on it, student sections can often have a large impact on the basketball court.
MACON - Moving up to Class AA had little effect on the Jefferson Dragons, who won their eighth consecutive GHSA State Duals title following a dominating 48-19 win over Lovett in their championship match Saturday at the Macon Centerplex.
