Here is the preliminary region alignment for Bradwell starting in the fall of 2012:
Region 3 AAAAAA
Greetings Tigers 5,
Thank you for the info, But do you believe that the Schools you have mentioned, have the student enrollment to play up in a Class AAAAAA Region?
If I'm not mistaken, the only True AAAAA School currently in Region 3-AAAAA is Camden County. I can easily see them being up in Class AAAAAA.
But then again, GHSA have not reclassified and set the required student enrollment to play in a perspective class have they?
Right now, Effingham County is not even a Class AAAAA team, nor is Brunswick correct? Although Coffee County have played down in Class this year, I think that their student enrollment is close to Class AAAAA. Am I correct here?
I guess it all depends on how GHSA realign the student enrollment. Is that correct?
If it does come to those teams you posted earlier being in the new Region 3-AAAAAA, then Bradwell Institute will definitely have a stronger strength of schedule than what they are use to playing in. Where does Liberty County lie at in these preliminary region alignments?
Well Tiger 5 posted a preliminary schedule. If that becomes the actual Region Schedule next year, I can say that I will be glad that Bradwell Institute will be playing those teams. It will bring back a more credible, and stronger strength of schedule. Can't honestly say that Bradwell Institute will have a successful season playing against those teams. (Due to past performances against inferior teams) But the schedule looks a lot better than the schdule they had in previous years.
As long as we rid ourselves of the Savannah schools, I can live with whatever region alignments are formulated. I would rather be kilt by a legitimate football team than play a Savannah school, no matter the result. Furthermore, this new classification will mean ZERO as long as the GHSA continues to allow the Savannah schools to play up.
I agree with you 100% Tiger5. I don't know abut Effingham County these days, but back in the day we use to hammer Effingham County. But I thinl Former Valdosta Wildcats Head Football Coach, and Atheletic Director Rick Tomberlin is the new Head Football Coach and Atheletic Director there. Tomberlin is a good coach. He may have turned that program around there, and they could very well a much improved football team.
Brunswick also brings a good program to the schedule. Bradwell use to beat them back in the day as well. Coffee County is a team that use beat Bradwell, back in the Coffee County Trojan Runningback Pulpwood Smith days. Althugh sincethey have move out of Region 3 and into Region 1, (The toughest Region in the State) they have shown it's vulnerability against those teams in that Region. However; The bottom team in that Region could beat Bradwell Institute. Now you have Canden County, a team that Bradwell Institute have not beaten in more han a decade. When Bradwell was in Class AA weus to beat Camden County, and think Bradwell Institute have beaten Camden county once or twice in Class AAAA, But since Jeff Herron arived there, it has been Camden County and then everybody else.
The schdule looks great and it bring credibility to the Region. I hope that Bradwell Institute's Atheletic Director place them on the 2012 schedule and drop those Savannah Teams. (ALL OF THEM)
It is totally embarassing to play against those teams who I really believe are inferior such as Jenkins, Windsor Forest, Groves, Beach, etc. and then lose to them. If Bradwell Institute was to lose football games, it would not look as bad losing to a Coffee County, a Camden County, even a Brunswick becuase of their strength.
Sorry about those typos in my above comment. I was typing from a net book, while traveling. Didn't have time to proof read my comment prior to posting it. But I am quite sure you all know what I am trying to say here.
Hey Jimmy "D",
How true. :-) But sad....
It all just looks like maybe a view different victims for Camden to play and tune up with before making their annual run to the State Championship. Losing to Savannah High last year was the lowest of the low for BI football in all the years that the school, my alma mater, has played football. Unless Walsh's playbook got a jolt of steroids in the off season BI will still be on an express elevator to Hell no matter who we play.
Well Jimmy "D",
Camden County is in it's rebuilding years with several players headed off to college on atheletic scholorships. But at the present state that Bradwell Institue was/is in, it does'nt matter if Camden County was rebuilding. Bradwell Institute Footabll Team has been out coach systematically each and every game of the past, and I don't have any reason to believe that anything would positively change as long as the current Atheetic Director is still there. I have to tell you, and I am being very honest here. This is te worst that I have ever seen in the history of Bradwell Institute Football Program. He is only there for the paycheck. He has'nt done anythong in his power to make positive change. It is the same thing each and every year. I can not and will not in good faith open my wallet for a denegerated progrm under the current Staff, and prgoram that it possess. He simply does not have the sense of urgency to improve it's program. It is very evident as I have, paid and watch these games at home, and away. Even the inferior Savannah Teams along with their Head Football Coaches have Bradwell Institute Football Team's number. Running Backs running of tackle. Up the middle, up the middle, up the middle, and then punt. It does not take much football knowledge to defend against that. I certainly hope that he drops the Savannah Teams, and play the schedule that Tiger 5 have posted.
