2016 NUC Sports South Georgia Game Coverage Tentative

Below is the tentative NUC Sports South Georgia schedule for the 2016 regular season. That being said the key word is tentative. Each host school is contacted in order to get permission to cover their event. Also things can change if certain teams lose key players to injuries.


Week One

It appears to be a matchup between David and Goliath as AAAAAA visits AA. But a closer look shows that Benedictine has dominated this series with a (40-20-1) record versus Glynn Academy. The Cadets are one of the favorites in GHSA AA in 2016 while the Red Terrors are fresh off an appearance in last year’s AAAAA State Championship Game.

Week Two

Appling County, one of the fastest teams in GHSA AAA, pays a visit to Vidalia. The Indians are led by heavily recruited linebacker Nate McBride. McBride may be the fastest linebacker in all of Georgia.


Week Three

Macon County drops from GHSA AA to A and will pay a visit to two-time GHSA A runner-up Irwin County. The Bulldogs boast a prolific passing attack led by senior K’Hari Lane. The Indians are known for tough defense and a ball controlling Wing-T offense.


Week Four

This is a rematch from last year which saw 89 points scored and over 1,100 yards of offense. Can the Bulldogs stop the dynamic rushing attack of JD King and James Graham?


Week Five

Camden County will visit long time border rival Brunswick. The Pirates return a ton of talent and recently picked up a stud athlete in former Wildcat running back Brandon McMaster.


Week Six

On paper this does not look like an elite matchup as the Yellow Jackets have a one-sided (21-1) series advantage. But a lot has changed at Lee County since Coach Fabrizio arrived. The Trojans boast two Michigan commits and an LSU commit.

Week Seven

This is the only matchup on the tentative schedule that is a first time meeting for both schools. Brooks County has been one of the most consistent programs in Georgia having won nine or more games in seven of the last eight seasons under coach Maurice Freeman. The Cougars have struggled but return one of the top defensive players in the state in DE/LB Markaviest Bryant.


Week Eight

Look for a lot of points to be scored in this game as Jake Fromm, two-time AAAAA Offensive Player of the Year, visits Leesburg. Lee County runs fast pace no-huddle offense that can strike quickly.

Week Nine

Fromm then visits Douglas, Georgia to take on a Trojan team that has finished (10-2) the last two seasons. Coffee is very good at stopping the run, but this will be the most prolific passer that they have ever faced.


Week Ten

Two words, rushing attacks! Last Year the Yellow Jackets had three 1,000 yard rushers and two of them return this year. They will be going toe-to-toe with possibly the best junior running back in the state of Georgia. Dameon Pierce ran for 2,060 yards and 33 touchdowns as a sophomore.


Week Eleven

The battle for bragging rights around the Okefenokee area are at stake. This is one of the toughest and most bitter rivalries in all of Georgia. Charlton County will have to stop the productive single-wing attack of the Panthers in order to win.


Week  Twelve

This matchup pits two of the most dynamic and athletic players in the State. The Panthers will be led by Richard LeCounte who last year was the team leader in both all-purpose yards and tackles. The Bears are led by the “Mailman” Stetson Bennett, IV. In just 11 games last year Bennett racked up 3,534 yards of offense and accounted for 35 touchdowns.
