While some may have been lulled into a false sense of security since the Apalachee High School football team was playing a team three classifications smaller, Wildcat head coach Shane Davis was not one of them.
Davis knew Greater Atlanta Christian, who entered the game ranked sixth in Class AA, would be a formidable opponent for his Class AAAAA Wildcats. Unfortunately, his assessment was correct as the visiting Spartans took a 31-21 win Friday at R. Harold Harrison Stadium.
“They are a good team,” Davis said. “We knew that going in. They are well coached and play very hard on every snap. Once again, we had some turnovers which hurt us.”
