Tanner Glisson, Troup County: For the first time in 35 years, the Troup Tigers are region champions. Led by head coach Tanner Glisson, the Tigers defeated Trinity Christian 50-15 to claim the Region 4-AAAA title. The Tigers are also 9-0 for the first time in program history and will have a chance to complete a perfect 10-0 regular season with a win against LaGrange next week.

Philip Jones, Brookwood: The Battle of Five Forks had a lot on the line Friday night. A win for either Brookwood or Parkview would secure a home playoff game in the first round of the Class AAAAAAA state playoffs and it was Philip Jones’ Broncos that prevailed with a 41-33 win. The Broncos will be the No. 2 seed out of Region Region 4.

Cory Dickerson, Hart County: With their season on the line, Hart County walked into Hebron Chrstian and left with a huge 48-27 win to keep their playoff hopes alive out of Region 8-AAA. Under first-year head coach Cory Dickerson, the Bulldogs are looking to run their streak of playoff berths to six years in a row with a win in their regular season finale against Monroe Area.

Grant Myers, Pickens: After starting the season with a disappointing 1-5 record, the Pickens Dragons have since rebounded with three straight wins and have clinched a spot in the playoffs out of Region 7-AAA. Led by head coach Grant Myerrs, they did so by defeating White County 48-28 on Friday night.

Darius Smiley, Central-Carrollton: Off to their best start since 2015, Central-Carrollton clinched a playoff spot out of Region 7-AAAA with a 35-17 win over Northwest Whitfield Friday night. It is the third year in a row that the Lions are in the playoffs under head coach Darius Smiley.
