In just six days, the NFL season will conclude with the biggest game of the year and the crowning of a new champion in Super Bowl XLIII. But Sunday's title tilt between the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers is not the only critical game that will be played this week, especially locally.
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.
