Decatur (3-3) will travel to the Roswell school for the 7:30 p.m. game.
Decatur High will try to snap a two-game losing streak Friday night when it travels to Blessed Trinity Catholic High School in Roswell. The teams have one opponent in common so far. Blessed Trinity beat Woodward Academy 21-14 two weeks ago, and Woodward beat Decatur 33-14 last weekend. The Bulldogs are now 3-3, but the losses the last two weekend -- to Woodward and Cedar Grove -- were regional games. Blessed Trinity is 4-1, having beaten White County 21-9, Hart County 25-10 and Westminster 25-20. The Titans lost 24-7 to Lovett. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Second half collapse sends the Bulldogs to second straight loss.
After a nearly even first half, Decatur’s offense sputtered, stalled and finally succumbed in the second half of Friday’s 33-14 loss to Woodward Academy at the Decatur High Stadium. The Bulldogs trailed only 16-14 at intermission, with the one major flaw in the first 24 minutes being a high snap over quarterback Devontae Carter’s head. That ball sailed through the end zone for a safety, giving Woodward a 9-7 lead with 10:46 left in the second quarter. For the longest time it appeared that misguided snap would seal Decatur’s doom. After Woodward took a 7-0 lead on its first possession, Decatur tied it late in the quarter in spectacular fashion. On second down from his own 28, Carter flipped five-yard pass to Terez Cowan, who was hit so …

The Bulldogs lost 41-21 in their their Region 6-AAA opener. They face Woodward Academy on Friday night.
Decatur coach Brad Waggoner said Saturday night, after his team’s 42-21 loss to Cedar Grove, that “we’re close, but we’re not there yet.” He thought a moment longer before adding, “I can’t really say that Cedar Grove beat us. We stopped our own self. Too much miscommunication and too many missed assignments.” Many of those came in the first 6:25 at Panthersville Stadium. Before many in the crowd had settled into their seats, Cedar Grove took a 21-0 lead on two Decatur’s turnovers and a questionable fourth down call. Led by Johnathan McCrary, perhaps the state’s best prep quarterback, Cedar Grove rolled up 468 yards total offense to Decatur’s 280. On the very first play after kickoff, Decatur quarterback Devontae Carter threw a screen that …

The Bulldogs (3-1) travel to Panthersville Stadium.
The Decatur High Bulldogs will face one of the best quartebacks in the state Saturday night when they start Region 6-AAA play against the Cedar Grove Saints. The game begins at 7:30 p.m. at Panthersville Stadium at 2817 Clifton Springs Road, Decatur 30034. Johnathon McCrary, an AJC Super 11 pick, has verbally committed to Vanderbilt. He led Cedar Grove to a 7-4 season last year and a 2-2 record so far this year. Cedar Grove lost to Tucker (36-14) and Columbia (20-15) and beat Douglass (30-7) and Redan (19-0). Decatur is now 3-1, having come alive in the fourth quarter last week to defeat Clarkston 27-7. Decatur quarterback Devontae Carter threw three touchdowns to Terez Cowan, with no interceptions. Decatur is playing in a revamped region…

By Bill Banks Maybe it was natural Decatur High’s football team would backslide a little after an emotional, come-from-behind one-point win over Greenville, and also with the Region 6-AAA opener around the corner. After a sluggish offensive effort, the Bulldogs poured it on late to beat Clarkston 27-7 Friday night, running their record to 3-1. From the beginning there were ominous overtones. When Decatur’s bus arrived at Hallford Stadium Friday afternoon the entire facility was locked. The Bulldogs didn’t get on the field until about half an hour before kickoff, though coach Brad Waggoner likes a full one hour and 15 minutes to warm up. It took nearly three-quarters of the game for Decatur to thaw out. Decatur led only 14-7 until …

Football season starts at 7:30 p.m. when the Bulldogs play Holy Innocents in a scrimmage at DHS Stadium.
Fans will get their first look at this year's Decatur High football team when the Bulldogs play Holy Innocents in a scrimmage game at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Decatur High Stadium. Fans will see a lot of players on the field and sidelines. The school's new coach, Brad Waggoner, plans to dress out about 70 players for the game. Last year, only about 38 players dressed for games, he said. "It's a big roster but it's a young roster," he said. "There's not a lot of Friday night experience." The team has a handful of seniors. One of the leaders will be Terryon Robinson, a wide receiver who has already received a scholarship offer from South Alabama, Waggoner said. Waggoner said other top seniors will be Andrew Brown, a transfer from Pennsylvania, …
