Camden County Wildcats, Kingsland , GA
The Wildcats have produced Division 1A, 1AA, Division 2 and Division 3 players in the last several years. However, the Wildcats do not praise only these players because they recognize that every member is a key component to a winning organization. The varsity team mentors the junior varsity and no task is beneath any player. The Wildcats have a common goal and that goal is to win.

Tift County Blue Devils, Tifton, GA
Always Ready, Always There. That's what the Tift County Blue Devils have in common with the Georgia Army National Guard. The Blue Devils prepare themselves mentally and physically week in and week out. They are winners on and off of the field and continue to keep school spirit and pride high. No matter who or what the challenge is, the Blue Devils will be ready to meet it head on. Always Ready Always There!

North Forsyth Radiers, Cumming, GA
The Raider players should be recognized as the high school team of the week because of their on and off the field leadership. In addition, they have modeled themselves to earn respect in the community as future leaders.

Northside Eagles, Warner Robins, GA
The Eagles have developed a successful program by stressing discpline and teamwork. Recognition such as the team of the week allows the Eagles to gain the students interest to become a part of our program. Once a student decides to participate with the Eagles the staff works to structure his activites on and off the field. This gives the individual members of the team a greater chance to achieve each of their goals.

Lakeside Panthers, Evans, GA
Lakeside has battled through several set backs. Last year they lost their star quarterback to injury and have lost several key players to other schools. Even with these set backs they have managed to dig deep and pull off a 4-0 record this year. The school has rallied behind their recently recovered quarterback and their second year head coach and have truley shown how proud they are to be a Lakeside Panther!

North Paulding Wolfpack, Dallas, GA
As a team the Wolfpack win or lose as a team. If one of team members makes a mistake the entire roster makes it a point to lift that person up.
