Jackets host Northside in 1-AAAA showdown

Posted: Updated:

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas County Central and Northside Warner Robins are two of the winningest high school football programs in Georgia over the last 20 plus years.

These two powers meet again with sole possession of first place in region 1-AAAA going to the winner.


The battle for first is our WALB Game of the Week tonight in the Locker Room.

Northside Warner Robins is 6-0 and ranked second in the state.

Thomas County Central is unranked but has won four straight after a loss at Colquitt County.

The Eagles won last year's game by 20 points in Warner Robins.

Head coach Bill Shaver hopes home field will be to the Jackets advantage tonight along with a more consistent running game.

Bill Shaver said. "We feel like we can run it against anybody. We had some success last year against them. We couldn't get anything consistent. We are going to do what we do. Hopefully, it is going to be good enough."

Game time is 8:00 p.m. in Thomasville and WALB will have highlights at 11:00 p.m. in the Locker Room Report.
