A quick look at this week’s high school football in the Rockdale and Newton county areas:
Eastside vs Newton
Alcovy at Rockdale
Salem at Coffee
YACS at Covenant Academy
BY THE NUMBERS
The amount of touchdowns the Alcovy offense has scored in their last seven games dating back to last season. The Tigers were shut out by Newton in Week 1, 45-0, extending their streak of games without a touchdown to four. The Tigers will travel to Rockdale County on Friday looking to end that streak.
The amount of consecutive wins Newton is hoping to achieve on Friday with a victory over cross-town rival Eastside. The Rams failed to win back-to-back games in 2018, but are in a prime position to do so this season after defeating Alcovy in Week 1.
The amount of wins Rockdale County needs to reach 300 in their program’s history. The Bulldogs currently hold a 297-393 record all-time with 15 ties. The Bulldogs inched closer to the milestone last Friday with a 23-12 victory over Eagle’s Landing.
The amount of years it has been since Eastside has started a season 0-2. The Eagles lost to Ola in Week 1, 58-21 and are now in danger of an 0-2 start with a Week 2 matchup against in-county rival Newton. The Eagles defeated Newton last season, 27-20.
The most offensive touchdowns Heritage has scored in a game in its last seven tries dating back to last season. The Patriots’ three touchdowns against Salem was their most scored since Week 5 of last season against Arabia Mountain.
