Georgia High School Football Goes National
Friday's cross-town rivalry game originates from DeKalb Memorial Stadium near Atlanta, with Bob Rathbun on the play-by-play call, Scout.com national recruiting advisor Jamie Newberg providing analysis, and Scout.com Southeastern recruiting advisor Scott Kennedy reporting from the sidelines.
The telecast spotlights several players who have already committed to Southern college football powerhouse schools, including Stephenson linebackers Perry Riley and Kelvin Sheppard (both to LSU) and Redan quarterback Byron Ingram (to Georgia Tech).
The field will also be loaded with players that have not made a commitment including Stephenson's Marcus Ball, Jermaine Cunningham, and Andre Anderson as well as Redan's Jasper Brooks.
Both schools have long supplied a wealth of talent to the college and professional ranks. Redan sent kicker Kevin Butler to Georgia and the Super Bowl Champion Chicago Bears, and he was the first kicker elected to the College Football Hall of Fame; Chris Gardocki to Clemson and a longtime NFL career with several teams; and wide receiver Terance Mathis to New Mexico and to the NFL Atlanta Falcons.
Current college rosters are dotted with Stephenson alumni, including Georgia (running back Kregg Lumpkin, wide receiver T.J. Gartrell, defensive back DeMario Minter), Georgia Tech (quarterback Reggie Ball), and Arkansas (cornerback Michael Grant).
FSN's national high school telecast series concludes on Thursday, 10/27, when Osceola HS in Kissimmee, Fla., visits nationally top-ranked (USA Today) Lakeland (Fla.) HS at 7 p.m.
