1Buford WolvesWhat do you call a pack of a Wolves with no weakness? BUFORD! Their 2013 season was a year of perfection ending with a 15-0 record and winning the AAA state championship. They are the one team who has remained consistent in hoisting the trophy winning 9 state championships since the 2001 season. The only thing different this year is a new classification (AAAA). The Wolves have the highest number of players represented in our GGR Top 50 players with eight and keep in mind those are only 2015 players. The only questions regarding the 2014 Wolves is Who Can Stop Them???
2Archer TigersThe Archer Tigers are coming off of their best season in school history. They finished the regular season undefeated going 10-0 and ultimately losing to North Gwinnett 32-34 in the second round of the state playoffs. The Tigers are entering this season with a huge chip on their shoulder looking to make it deeper in the playoffs and hopefully winning the big game. Archer is loaded with talent, led by senior QB Gabe Tiller who was the 2013 GGR QB of the year. Look for the Tigers to put up big numbers in 2014. Multiple sources have Archer as the favorite to win the State Championship class 6A. Will the self proclaimed Team6 live up to the hype?
3North Gwinnett BulldogsUnder head coach Bob Sphire North Gwinnett has posted 8 consecutive ten win seasons. Last season North ended the regular season with an impressive 9-1 record. It appeared the stars were aligned for the Bulldogs to win the state championship but Norcross had other plans. They took a 31-14 loss in the final game of the 2013 season at the Georgia Dome. North Gwinnett may be one of the most well rounded teams in Gwinnett with solid players all over the field including 5 star recruit Mitch Hyatt on the O-Line. Can North Gwinnett continue their streak of 10 win seasons? Only time will tell!
4Mill Creek HawksIf you ask any high school football guru, they will tell you the 2013 version of the Mill Creek Hawks should've been a playoff team. The unfortunate thing for Mill Creek is they were in a loaded Region 7 and only 4 teams could make it. The 2014 Hawks have a huge advantage over their opponents this year, returning 4 starting offensive lineman and Dual Threat QB Daniel David. Senior RB Jonathan Hawkins should have breakout year carrying the majority of the load for the Hawks. How high can the Hawks fly this year? The 2014 season will show us!
5Peachtree Ridge LionsThe Peachtree Ridge Lions started the 2013 season with five straight wins and finished the season with a 7 point loss in the 2nd round of the playoffs to the Dacula Falcons. The Lions appear to be loaded with a lot of potential this year. They have numerous players who can make an impact all over the field including impact transfers WR/DB Chad Clay and RB Malik Staples. The question for Peachtree Ridge is not how big the lion is, but how loud will they roar???
6Grayson Rams The Rams are coming off of their first losing season since 2005. They ended the 2013 season with an overall record of 4-6. Look for Grayson to rebound, with their defense being the anchor for the team. With four defensive players all committed to FBS schools, the Rams will have one of the best defenses in the county. Head coach Mickey Conn is a great coach, so we should all expect them to turn things around this season and get back to the playoffs which historically is the norm for Grayson.
7Norcross Blue DevilsThe defending back to back 6A state champions are entering the 2014 season replacing 19 of 22 starters. The Blue Devils are led by Head Coach Keith Maloof who is entering his 16th season as their leader. Coach Maloof has never had a losing season since taking over the Blue Devils in 1999. With the team being young this year, expect Maloof and company to remain in the mix of things.
8Lanier LonghornsThe Longhorns have made the jump from 4A to 5A competition this year. Adversity struck Lanier early this summer when head coach Billy Wells took a position at North Hall High School. Lanier made the state playoffs for the 1st time in school history, and they finished 2013 with an overall record of 9-3. Their season ended in the second round of the playoffs against Alexander. During the Spring Season Lanier looked big, physical and ready to take on all competition. RB Tario Fuller recently committed to Purdue University. Can he lead the Longhorns to the playoffs in consecutive seasons?
9GAC SpartansThe Spartans started their 2013 season gladiator-like by scoring a minimum of 41 points in the first nine games. Their season came to an end with a disappointing loss in the second round of the state playoffs. On the verge of opening the 2014 season, the Spartans appear to be hungry and ready. With at least 4 major Division 1 prospects and a big chip on their shoulder, expect the Spartans to declare war on their opponents this year.
10Dacula FalconsAfter making it to the state quarterfinal's last season Dacula looks to build on the success from 2013. Last season the Falcons had to adjust to new head coach Tommy Jones and his system. After getting off to a slow start with losses to Mill Creek and Collins Hill, Dacula turned it around with consecutive wins of their own including their first ever win against neighboring rival Grayson. Dacula will return multiple starters at key positions but the big question is who will be under center?
