On Friday WCTV will offer you a Friday Night Blitz, playoff edition. Three teams that will be hosting are just North of the Georgia-Florida Border.

It's a tale of success and it runs thick on the football fields of South Georgia. It tells us a lot about the talent pool in the small triangle of high schools; Cairo, Thomasville, and Thomas County Central. All region champions this season.

"I don't think we've hit our peak yet, we've talked to the kids about that a little bit, we feel like we keep getting better each week, and as long as you see that you feel pretty good about your chances," says Syrupmakers Head Coach Tom Fallaw.

The 'Makers next host Benedictine in the playoffs.

For the Thomasville Bulldogs, they too play host this Friday, but for them the opponent is Laney of Savannah, a perennial powerhouse from August, Georgia.

"They've got a very good football team, coming out of the four seed, but they beat the number one seed, so it's a very good talented football team, a team of some tradition coming in here, so we know what we got to do," says head Bulldog Richie Marsh.

Then there is Thomas County Central, they have yet to lose, having scored 28 or more points in all but one game, you can expect their offense to come out attacking Brunswick on Friday.

"It's real special to me because I still got a great team with me, and I got a great offensive line that's blocking for me, and got people to support me, so it's great for me," says Yellow Jackets running back Debrale Smiley.

A tale of passion, talent, and wins, a common tale in the South Georgia Region.
