The Archer Tigers (10-0, 8-0) went on the road Friday night to play the Grayson Rams (4-5, 4-3) a week after winning the first Region 8-AAAAAA championship in their short five-year history and closed out their regular season schedule by defeating the Rams, 34-21. The Tigers are the first Gwinnett team to go 10-0 this season, and now have a bye week before facing the No. 4 team from Region 6-AAAAAA.
K. J. Parmer threw a TD pass, caught a pass for a score and ran for six while leading Archer in receiving in both catches (6) and yards (135) in the win. He also threw a 55-yard TD pass to Singleton to open the scoring. Dylan Singleton (3 R, 62 yards), Connor Redmond (3 R, 9 yards), Randy Nails (4 R, 39 yards) and Kyle Davis (3 R, 22 yards) all contributed. Quarterback Gabe Tiller was 18 of 26 for 213 yards on the night. Nails accounted for the majority of the Tiger ground attack with 57 yards on 18 carries and a TD.
Cameryn Brent led all rushers with 72 yards on 17 attempts, while adding 24 receiving yards on 4 receptions in the Rams loss. Ryan Carriere had 32 yards on two grabs, while QB Chase Brice finished the night 12 of 24 for 143 yards.

Week 12 Games: (Our projection in parenthesis)
Berkmar @ Dacula (Dacula gets the W.)
Grayson @ Brookwood (The teams come into the game with identical records, and the winner will finish 5-3 in region play and secure a spot in the post season. Look for the Rams to win a hard fought battle.)
South @ Parkview (A Panther win at home would all but assure a post season berth. Parkview will benefit from the home field advantage and score late to win.)
Central @ Shiloh (The teams have matching 2-5 region marks, but the Generals are 4-5 over all compared to the 2-7 record of the Knights. Despite the overall records, Central has played better late in the season while Shiloh has cooled dramatically since opening the season 3-1. Central is the better team at this point in the season and will improve to 3-5 in region after beating Shiloh.)
Archer does not play
Heading into the final week of the regular season, Examiner is 75-22 in game projections.
