I think it's safe to say that Gainesville High has the most exciting football team in Region 7-AAA to watch this season. The Red Elephants (3-0) have the most electrifying athletes, most dangerous quarterback and best defensive production - this side of Buford.
JEFFERSON - After opening the season with impressive wins over its rival and in the region opener last week, Jefferson made an even bigger statement in its home opener against Region 8-AA defending champ Fannin County in a Week 3 showdown of two undefeated squads.
The Jefferson High softball team won one of four games played in the Oconee County tournament Friday and Saturday in Watkinsville. The Dragons earned their only win against Jackson County 8-0 on Saturday.

From staff reports
Riverside Military Academy's football team is taking Region 8-AA by storm with three wins right out of the gate to open the season. The Eagles (3-0, 2-0) got their biggest win of the season with a 48-2 victory over Rabun County (0-3) Friday night at Maginnis Field.
Led by a relentless running game and virtually impenetrable defense, Lakeview Academy got its first football win as a varsity program with a 35-6 rout of Hebron Christian on Friday night in Gainesville.
Chestatee's Stan Luttrell is the ultimate optimist when it comes to his team. The War Eagles coach has no doubt in his mind they are better than the team that got shelled by Gainesville 35-0 in Week 1.
For the first time in school history, Dawson County's boys and girls golf teams swept the Region 7-AAA championships on Tuesday at Crystal Falls Golf Course in Dawsonville. The Tigers and Lady Tigers advance to the state tournament on May 18.
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.
