Welcome to Cobb Football Friday, your go-to podcast for all things high school football in Cobb County! I'm your host, Brian Giffin, and with me is my co-host, John Bednarowski. This week, we've got a lot to cover, from record-breaking wins to crucial playoff matchups. Let's dive into the action.
Osborne High School is making history with a 7-0 record, equalling their most wins in program history since 1994 when they won nine games. The Cardinals are on the brink of securing their first-ever state playoff berth, and we'll discuss their incredible journey.
Kell had a bit of a rocky start against Cambridge but picked up the pace in the second half. McEachern, known as the "Real MHS" this year, proved their worth with a victory over Marietta, and North Cobb put up an impressive 63 points on the road against a formidable Wheeler team.
Now, let's take a look at this week's exciting matchups:
1. Campbell faces Pebblebrook in a game that could determine a playoff spot. The winner will likely secure a spot, while the loser might be on the outside looking in.
2. Harrison goes up against Hillgrove in a game that could be a playoff elimination battle. Both teams are hungry for a win to stay in the race.
3. GAC takes on Kell in a game that could very well be the de facto region championship. Both teams are primed for a thrilling showdown.
4. Kennesaw Mountain faces North Cobb, with the Warriors seeking their first region win. Can they pull off an upset?
5. Pope meets Lassiter in a close-to-home rivalry. With only three games left in the season, both teams need to win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
6. McEachern faces North Paulding, with the Indians looking to continue their four-game winning streak. A win would give them sole possession of first place in the region.
7. North Cobb Christian takes on Mount Paran, with the chance to win their first region title at stake.
8. Wheeler goes head-to-head with Osborne in a crucial game for playoff seeding. The winner will likely secure at least the No. 3 seed.
9. Walton faces Cherokee, with the Raiders on a roll and looking to move to 3-0 in the region. Cherokee is in need of their first region win to stay in the playoff race.
10. Whitefield Academy starts their three-game region slate against St. Francis after a long non-region schedule.
And in other matchups:
- Etowah plays Allatoona.
- Dunwoody takes on South Cobb.
- Walker goes up against Cherokee Christian.
