All football coaches in 8-AAAAA agree when it comes to toughness it’s hard to top this region.
The Winder-Barrow High School football team continued its journey down the region path last Friday with a 54-14 road loss to Flowery Branch. The Falcons, under the direction of former defensive coordinator and first-year head coach Chris Griffin, showed no signs of overlooking their opponent as they upped their 8-AAAAA mark to 5-0 (5-2 overall.)
“After we started the season 0-2, we learned not to focus on anyone but the next opponent,” Griffin said. “We even stress not looking past the next play.”
Flowery Branch scored on its first six possessions to erase any possibility of an upset. WBHS has shown improvement in their previous two outings, taking Salem to the wire and battling Heritage in a game which was closer than the final score indicated.
