FLOWERY BRANCH - Flowery Branch senior defensive end Izaan Cross resisted the temptation of letting the lure of college recruiting get in the way of his final season of high school football. It seems to have panned out pretty well for Cross, who holds scholarship offers from some of the biggest Division I schools in the country, and who was a driving force for the Falcons' run to the state title game.
When the Johnson High boys and girls basketball teams take to the floor tonight a lot of things will be the same. The uniforms will be blue and white, the opponent will be another high school team and the game plan will be to win.
As the chartered buses pulled into Flowery Branch High to pick up the football team and cheerleaders, the air-raid siren familiar to players and fans alike blared, echoing out over the empty football stadium and sending them off with a little bit of home.
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.
