Barrow County is unique — and lucky I suppose — in that it has a special rivalry between it’s two major high schools.
I’m sure rivalaries exist in counties such as Gwinnett but with so many schools and so many people, I’ve alway felt rivalries get lost in the shuffle. It’s not that way in Barrow County. Here we have Winder-Barrow High School, the program with a history dating back decades, and we have Apalachee, still the relatively new kid on the block.
While the football teams have only been playing since 2004, the gridiron rivalry has quickly become one the community enjoys and looks forward to. With some changes on the horizon in terms of classifications and region alignments, it would be a shame if it could not continue.
