SBT Team online ad FOOTBALL

The BLITZ Game of the Week is “The Battle for Currahee Mountain” aka Stephens County and Habersham Central in Toccoa. The long-time rivals square off in the 42nd meeting all-time.

STEPHENS

The Indians held their own in a tough draw at #3-ranked Rabun County. Stephens County’s offense did very well for awhile with Kenny Colwell, Hudson Spurlock and Gamarion Carter doing most of the heavy lifting. The defense also forced a couple of takeaways, and it has become clear that while this team is young, they’re chalk full of playmaking athletes.
