SCHS Pigskin Update

Yes, sports fans, it is that time of year again. My alma mater Stephens County Indians are gearing up to make another playoff run in Region 8AAA. To that end, there is a “Red Rage” communitywide pep rally scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, 20 August, in downtown Toccoa.

This year's campaign will not be an easy one, as several opponents on the SCHS schedule are ranked in preseason polls: the
AJC has Flowery Branch at #3 and LaGrange at #4 in its AAA top 10, while MaxPreps has Flowery Branch at #1, Eastside at #6, LaGrange at #8, and Hart County at #18 in its AAA top 25. The Indians come in at #9 in the latter poll.

The Indians open the season on Friday evening, 28 August, at Flowery Branch. SCHS narrowly defeated the Falcons early last season, but lost the rematch in the first round of the state playoffs.
