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.
Dawson County's Madison Caldwell shot a 73 to win the Class AAA girls golf individual state title Monday at Horseshoe Bend in Roswell. Caldwell beat out second place finisher Clara Halsey of Sonoraville. The Dawson County girls finished seventh as a team with a score of 298. In addition to Caldwell's 73, Sydney Morgan shot a 103 and Hannah McConnell shot a 122 for the Lady Tigers. The Dawson County boys shot a 343 to finish seventh at the state tournament. David Ford led the way with an 81.
COLUMBUS – The scores were good for Gainesville's boys, especially when you consider the fast greens and humid air pressing golfers during the Class AAAAA championship meet at the Country Club of Columbus.
Flowery Branch's Jake Shewbert added to his strong performance at the Georgia Olympics, earning a fourth-place spot in the 3200 race with a time of 9 minutes, 44.1 seconds at Jefferson Memorial. Joining him in the race for the Falcons, Grant O'Callaghan was ninth (9:53.29).
