Game of the Week Preview: White County vs Chestatee

SBT Team online ad FOOTBALL

The BLITZ Game of the Week is a very important Region 7-AAAA battle in Cleveland between White County and Chestatee.

WHITE COUNTY

The Warriors have had the second-toughest schedule in all of Class 4A in the state. That resulted in a 1-5 start to the season, but the Warriors came up big two weeks with a region win over West Hall to keep their playoff hopes alive. That was in large part due to the fantastic, unforgettable performance by Michael Mintz, who recorded five touchdowns after touching the ball just seven times. He had three rushing scores, one receiving and one scoop-and-score, as well as a sack, seven tackles and a forced fumble. The playoff hope took a crushing blow with a 28-27 last second loss to Denmark last week, however. White County needs this win in Week 10 at any cost.

CHESTATEE

SKINNY AD - DCMM GIFThe War Eagles are having a very forgettable season in a rebuilding effort. The good news is Christian Charles, a sophomore who is showing that he is indeed one of the top dual threats in the state and can shatter many school records. Chestatee is mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, which is dangerous because they are playing now with house money and have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

OUR PREDICTION

The Warriors need this win to stay alive for a playoff bid out of the very difficult Region 7-AAA that contains top-10 ranked foes #1 Marist, #4 Blessed Trinity and #7 Flowery Branch. White County takes another step with a win here, or is eliminated in a loss. As noted, Chestatee is playing with nothing to lose, so would love to upset the Warriors here. FINAL VERDICT: White Wins
