They have a winning tradition in Blakely and sport one of the top players in the country in linebacker Dan Foster, a player I'm sure many on the Yellow Jackets team will get to meet first-hand.
This game has all the makings of a shootout. Central will likely wear down Early County down the stretch, but the Bobcats will test the Yellow Jackets' defense, much more than Colquitt County did.
Just ask Americus-Sumter who lost to Early County 37-34 in the first game of the season.
This is a huge game for Central head coach Ed Pilcher. There's no telling how bad Early County and its fans want to beat their former coach. This game probably will come down to who has the ball last.
In my opinion it's Early County.
Early County 34,
Mitchell-Baker vs. Cairo
Cairo was dealt a huge blow in its game against Thomasville, losing running back Danta Harrell to injury. With him still sidelined, the Syrupmakers lose quickness and speed at tailback. But with Fabian Cooper and Allen Hopkins comes power and that should be enough to wear down the undermanned Mitchell-Baker Eagles.
The Eagles don't enough personnel to stay with the Syrupmakers.
Pelham vs. Thomasville
The Thomasville Bulldogs best beware of Pelham tonight. Last year, the Hornets nearly pulled the upset in Pelham. I don't think that'll happen two years in a row.
Thomasville got a much-needed win against Dougherty last week, while Pelham was blanked by Cook.
On a night when the Bulldogs will honor their 1973 and '74 state title teams, Thomasville should go out and give a championship performance.
Brookwood vs. Tiftarea
This is the most important game of the night, as far as standings are concerned. The first game of the GISA Region 3-AA schedule pits two familiar foes. Brookwood looks to rebound from a tough loss against Southland.
The Warriors' running game will look to get in gear and should against the Panthers' defense.
Brookwood 27, Tiftarea 20
