Big Game in Class A
Thursday, 07 November 2013

November 7--  Georgia High School Football Daily reports on a big game this weekend in Region 3-A high school football.

Calvary Day at Johnson County


When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Herschel Walker Field, Wrightsville


Records, rankings: Calvary Day is 7-2 overall, 5-0 in Region 3-A Div. A and No. 10; Johnson County is 9-0 overall, 4-0 in Region 3-A Div. B and No. 4.


Last meeting: Calvary Day won 37-18 in 2011.


Three things to know:

1. This is the Region 3-A championship game. Johnson County is No. 3 in this week's Class A public-school power ratings and Calvary Day is No. 9 among private schools, so both are expected to make the playoffs, but the winner's playoff seeding could improve because region champions are seeded higher than the remaining teams in their bracket. Johnson County was awarded home field for this game because its power rating (13.26) is higher than Calvary Day's (12.20).


2. Calvary Day has a balanced offense that gets about 54 percent of its yardage from a passing game led by Michael Peterson, who has thrown for 1,965 yards and 24 touchdowns. The running game is led by Robert Heyward (704 yards, four touchdowns) and Derek Kirkland (515, 13).


3. Johnson County is more run-oriented and rarely attempts more than about 10 passes per game. The leading rushers are Markel Horne (691 yards), Michael Taylor (678) and Keith Hall (415). Horne rushed for 332 yards and passed for 157 in a 65-29 victory over ECI two weeks ago.
