MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.-- John Milledge, Westwood, Valwood and Brentwood are the four schools left in the GISA AA semifinals.
Friday, John Milledge and Valwood will go head-to-head in a battle between two of the best schools in AA.
The Trojans blew through their first two games in the postseason, defeating Brookwood and Memorial Day by at least 24 points.
Five of JMA's 12 wins were shut-outs. Head coach J.T. Wall says his defense is a lot faster at all positions this year. They will need that speed Friday night to stop an undefeated Valwood squad.
Wall says having the week off from school allows his players to just focus on the game.
"They've got homework, but it's not school homework. It's football homework right now," explained Wall. "It gives these guys a taste of focusing on nothing but football right now."
"We're not on the field any longer than we normally are. We're having a lot more film studies and a lot more meetings. These guys are dialed in and they've seen a lot of film this week on Valwood."
