Liberty County —
Region 3A-AAAA
The Panthers have played only one Region 3A-AAAA opponent; however, it was last week’s 24-7 loss to Statesboro that gave the Panther team a 0-1 start in region play.
The Panthers, who are off this week, hold the second-best overall record among the region squads at 6-1, with Statesboro ahead at 7-0.
This one still is too early to call, as Wayne County and South Effingham have not played any region opponents to date. Wayne County and South Effingham go head-to-head Friday in Guyton. The Panthers will face Wayne County on Oct. 25 in Jesup.

First Presbyterian Christian Academy — GISA Region 2-A
There are six private schools in the Georgia Independent School Association Region 2-A class, and FPCA currently is fifth despite its 0-6 overall mark.
The Highlanders play Robert Toombs Academy on Friday in Lyons, and a win could open a chance for a playoff spot. FPCA hosts Crisp Academy, the top team in the region, Oct. 25 and Fullington Academy on Nov. 8. A 2-2 region mark at the end of the season could provide the spark the Highlanders need.

Long County —
Region 2-AA
It’s not looking too good right now for the Blue Tide.
They are sitting at the bottom of the region with a 0-5 mark. The Benedictine Cadets rule the region at 6-0 region mark and 7-0 overall.
Long County plays Toombs County on Friday, but even a Tide win will have the two schools tied for the region bottom.
