Ben Reaves, Milton: Keep counting out the Eagles. Led by first-year head coach Ben Reaves, the Eagles picked up another huge win Friday night, taking down Grayson in the Class AAAAAAA state quarterfinals. The Eagles are headed back to the semifinals for the second year in a row and will tangle with Mill Creek with a spot in the state finals on the line.
Marquis Westbrook, Warner Robins: The Demons might not be as dominant as they have been in the past two seasons, winning back-to-back state titles. But that doesn’t mean this year’s team isn’t still in the mix to win a third straight title. Led by head coach Marquis Westbrook, the Demons took down Creekside to advance to the Class AAAAA state semifinals Friday night.
Darren Myles, Carver-Atlanta: The Panthers aren’t your average No. 3 seed in the state playoffs and they’ve proved that in all three rounds thus far. Led by head coach Darren Myles, the Panthers took down No. 1 seed Thomasville 28-23 Friday night to advance to the Final 4.
Ben Hall, Oconee County: Despite getting the No. 3 seed out of Region 8-AAA, the Warriors are the only team out of that region left standing. Led by head coach Ben Hall, the Warriors beat Carver-Columbus 14-6 to get back to the Final 4 for the third time in four years.
Don Norton, Johnson County: The Trojans' historic season continued Friday night with a quarterfinals win against perennial power Clinch County 38-21. Led by head coach Don Norton, it’s Johnson County’s first trip to the state semifinals since 2005. They’re 13-0 for the first time in program history.
