The Georgia High School Association’s Reclassification Committee has moved Hancock Central to a different subregion in Region 7-A to separate it from Warren County, GHSA Executive Director Ralph Swearngin said.

Swearngin said people in the region thought it would be best to have the two schools on opposite sides.

Warren County will be in Subregion A with Aquinas, Glascock County, Lincoln County and Taliaferro County. Hancock Central is in Subregion B with Challenge Charter, First Presbyterian, Georgia Military Prep, Georgia Academy for the Blind, Twiggs County and Wilkinson County.

Swearngin said the GHSA is still looking into the Oct. 14 postgame football brawl between Hancock Central and Warren County.

I called this a week ago.

I called this a week ago. Probably won't be included in the draw for inter-conf games at the end of the season either.

Is this all the GHSA is going

Is this all the GHSA is going to do?

Carol Jean won't let the battery of her football players and coach be ignored.

Yes this is all the GHSA is

Yes this is all the GHSA is going to do because this is a stance they take on everything. They bury their heads in the sand whenever facing controversy. Just take the making up of separate championships for class A. Take a stand for what is right and not necessarily what is politically correct! May Dr. Carey & Coach Daniel have their day in another court. I just hope some other team does not take matters into their own hands when a riot similar to this occurs in Hancock County.

So, GHSA has enough

So, GHSA has enough information on the attack by HC on WC players and head coach that they can move the schools to separate sub-regions? But they don't have enough information to deal with the guilty parties?

Sub-regions will eventually face each other in tournaments. What then??

Hancock County should be dealt with by the GA State BOE, & GHSA as well as the state's Attorney General if possible.

The GBI investigation

The GBI investigation revealed that Warren County Coach Daniel threw the first two punches. He got what he deserved. Two weeks later he and his team was reported for chop blocking to the GHSA by the coaching staff at Washington -Wilkes. I understand that Hancock Central has a large black population but please people give it a rest Warren County bears just as much responsiblity.
