*7-AAA region game

The Tigers have a monster out-of-region schedule, with a much-hyped game in Week 2 against state powerhouse Flowery Branch. This will prepare the Tigers very well for region play, as they open that part of the schedule with White County (back in the same region for the first time since 2013).

That game will be huge as well, as will the finale at The Brickyard against North Hall. With misfits GAC out of 7-AAA, Dawson County is the early favorite to win the region. North Hall and White County will be serious contenders also, and arriving on the scene earlier than expected, Cherokee Bluff should battle for a playoff spot also.

The bye weeks are strategically placed the week prior and following that first region game. Hats off to legendary coach Sid Maxwell on a fantastic non-region tough schedule. Dawson has not shied away from competition during his tenure in Dawsonville.

SPRING GAME – MAY 15 @ Pickens County


AUG 21 – vs Franklin County
AUG 28 – @ Chamblee
SEP 11 – vs Banks County
SEP 18 – @ St. Francis
SEP 25 – BYE
OCT 2 – @ Gilmer*
OCT 9 – @ North Hall*
OCT 16 – vs Cherokee Bluff*
OCT 23 – @ White County*
OCT 30 – vs Dawson County*
NOV 6 – vs West Hall*

*7-AAA region game

The Indians, also in region 7-AAA, have a schedule that is back-loaded with home games. They play three straight on the road. They’ll have both bye weeks used up by the halfway point, and once region play begins it will be all gas and no brakes (or breaks, if you want to look at it both ways).

The games of the most local interest include a non-region hosting of Banks County, and a visit in-region to White County as well as Dawson coming into town near the end of the year.
