We at Born To Compete have been fortunate to be front row for some very exciting games. Last year was more of the same as it produced some very thrilling games that will be remembered by those that played it and witnessed it for a lfetime. So as we continue to get ready for the season we made a list of the top ten football games covered by B2C last season.
Pointe South vs Kendrick
Pointe South came into the game undefeated and ranked as a top ten team and also had arguably one of the best WR’s in the country in Nic Manson. Kendrick was undefeated as well and had a defense that was led by the B2C Defensive Player of the Year Kevon Glenn.
Atlanta Vikings vs Swiftlions
If anybody knows football then they know that the Carrolton area produces very good talent and that is where the Swiftlions are from. The Atlanta Vikings on the other hand were on a mission to win the Frank Ski Bowl and it all started in a preseason in the Autism Bowl. Both teams would go on to have members of their team named All Americans and both would produce in this game.
Highlights start at 23:28 mark
North Paulding vs Hillgrove
North Paulding was ranked in the top ten and so was Hillgrove, something had to give. North Paulding led by a slew of talented players including Zion Hawkins (WR) and Ross Malngrem (QB) was in for a battle.
Highlights starts at 1:00 mark
Forsyth Paladins vs Atlanta Cowboys
First time ever the Atlanta Cowboys had made it on the big stage and they weren’t looking to disappoint. Only problem was across the field was the Forsyth Paladins, a team that was prepared to play four full quarters in order to win the GAD1 Championship.
Future Stars Game
7th and 8th Grade
All star games are usually extremely non competitive. Players are usually trying to make a name for themselves and coaches are trying to manage their subs so they can get everyone in the game. Well in this game that was all thrown out the window as those players laid it on the line. The 7th grade game was a classic and the 8th grade game was simply a joy to watch as we all witnessed one of the greatest defensive performances in the history of the Future Stars game.
Highlights start at the 5:10 mark
Grayson vs North Gwinnett
So much hype surrounded this game as the GFL had the main stage for the weekend. Grayson came in as the number 1 team in the state. North Gwinnett were the defending champions. There were high profile players all over the field as Grayson was chomping at the bits to make history. Only if they could hold off the physical North Gwinnett Bulldogs.
Campbell vs McEachern
Might have been one of the best playoff games ever in the history of the GMSAA. This one came down to the wire as both teams were looking to keep their championship hopes alive.
Lawrenceville vs Mill Creek
The Mill Creek team had been together through countless battles and come out as champions many times before. Lawrenceville had talent all over the field. That set the stage for one of the greatest championship games in GFL history.
Tucker vs Atlanta Vikings
Two teams that had been waiting to get at each other all year. They met early in the season and Tucker got the best of the Vikings. Now the two best teams in the state were looking to meet up in the B2C Championship game for the state title, a game that would end up being decided in overtime.
Acworth Warriors vs Central Dekalb Jaguars
Acworth was destined for greatness. Every year they had played in the B2C Championship game and every time except once they didn’t walk away with the championship. One of the most decorated teams in B2C history stood on the brink of greatness. In front of them was Central Dekalb who arguably the best defense in the state with Bruce Thornton, the best linebacker in their age group. The Central Dekalb Jaguars were the only team to ever beat the Acworth Warriors in a B2C Championship Game. The game lived up to be everything a fan could possibly want.
