The Charlton County Indians football team is on the verge of making the playoffs for the first time since 2018 after holding on to the very end to outlast Lanier County 42-41 last Friday night in Lakeland. A win this Friday night against Atkinson County would clinch the fourth seed and playoff berth. A loss wouldn't totally eliminate the Tribe, but it would force a three way tie and some sort of mini-playoff would have to be played.
Congratulations to former Indian head football coach Rich McWHorter for becoming just the 14th coach in Georgia history to win 300 career games. McWhorter won 288 games while at the helm of the Indians.
Former Indian, Teon Burroughs picked up two more sacks last week for Reinhardt University as the Eagles improved to 7-2 on the season.
The Atlanta Braves split two games in Houston, before returning to Atlanta where the Braves took two out of three to take a three games to two lead in the World Series. The series returned to Houston where the Braves hope to win at least one more game to clinch their first World Series title since 1995.
The top ranked Georgia Bulldogs scored 21 points in the final two and a half minutes of the first half, to turn a 3-0 lead into a 24-0 advantage on the way to a 34-7 rout of the Florida Gators in Jacksonville last Saturday.
Other top ten teams Cincinnati, Oklahoma and Ohio State all won, but sixth ranked Michigan fell to eighth ranked Michigan State, ninth ranked Iowa fell to Wisconsin and tenth ranked Ole Miss lost to Auburn.
The Jacksonville Jaguars saw their one game winning streak come to an end, as they were dominated on the road against the Seattle Seahawks 31-7 to fall to 1-6 on the season.
The Atlanta Falcons also had a lackluster afternoon dropping to 3-4 after losing to the Carolina Panthers 19-13.
The Atlanta Hawks have split their first six games of the season. All star guard Trae Young is averaging 22 points and ten assists so far this season.
Alex Bowman bumped Denny Hamlin out of the way with six laps remaining and then held off Kyle Busch in overtime to pick up the win in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. Bowman, a non playoff driver won't advance to the Championship race next week in Phoenix. The remaining three slots for the championship were earned by points. Hamlin still qualified as did Chase Elliott and Martin Truex, Jr. and will join Kyle Larson, who was the only automatic qualifier.
