Georgia’s top classification, 6A, adds Tucker, North Paulding

Georgia will have two more teams in Class-AAAAAA for the 2014 GHSA football season then it did last season as Tucker and North Paulding, both AAAAA schools last season, are moving up to the state’s highest class. Tucker was the runner-up in AAAAA last season while North Paulding was the Region-5 champions.

The additions of two teams that are perennial title challengers will make AAAAAA even stronger. Early 2014 Maxwell Ratings have Tucker at No.11 and North Paulding at No. 17. While adding two talented teams, AAAAAA did not lose any of the Top 10 teams, so the 2014 season is already shaping up to be another great season for football fans across the state.

Those that question the Top 20 rankings that Tucker and North Paulding received, as well as their ability to compete immediately, should recall Lovejoy.

Lovejoy was the AAAA runner-up in 2011, and then they were the AAAAAA runner-ups in 2012 in their first season at that level-and they jumped two classifications.

Coffee and Brunswick will be dropping from AAAAAA to AAAAA.

Class AAA champion Buford will be making the move to AAAA, and are projected as the No.1 team. Buford has won state championships across two classes already and will be the favorite to capture the 4A in their first season there as well.
