Adel -- At the beginning of the GHSA football state playoffs, forty teams were seeded fourth.
Now, only one remains.
The Cook Hornets pulled off two big upsets in the opening rounds, with surprisingly easy victories at Swainsboro and Dodge County.
Cook heads on the road again for the state quarterfinals this week, as they take on Greater Atlanta Christian in Norcross.
The Spartans feature some highly-rated talent, with Atlanta Falcons coach Bobby Petrino's son at running back, and a wide receiver already committed to UGA.
Hornets head coach Jim Scroggins says the Cook fan support on the road has been great, and his team is peaking at the right time.
"We've been on somewhat of a roll," says Scroggins. "These last two games have really been upsets. We consider them upsets, and I'm sure folks we played against thought the same. Although, we knew we were getting better every ballgame."
Cook plays at Greater Atlanta Christian Friday night.
