If you all want to know anything about any of these teams, just ask. From the way I see things, Trion will be better than last year, as last year, they went 3-7, and did not make the playoffs. This year, we will be in the playoffs, cause there are only 3 teams in the region, besides Trion.

I think that Trion has a great chance of going 7-3 this year. The losses will come from Commerce, Bowdon, and perhaps Bremen. Both Bowdon and Commerce are tauting teams that contend for the state title, and Bowdon and Bremen are 2 teams that are in region. Gordon Lee, which is Trion's arch-rival, and is the longest running rivalry in the state, is the 4th team in the region.

A friend of mine creates the little helmets, that I will post below, and I ask for the ones I need, and I put them together.

Here are the pictures of the Trion Bulldog helmets and the Lafayette Rambler helmets.  Lafayette and Trion are 25 mins apart from one another on Hwy. 27.  Trion leads the all-time series 30-19, and here's hoping that #31 will come on Sept. 1st, in Trion, at Sam R. McCain Stadium, on Blevins Field.......at 7:30 PM! 

GO BULLDOGS!

Boy its football time again. I have a son playing for the Katy Tigers(Texas). The Tigers are nationally ranked every year. Last year we were 16-1. The lose came in the state finally to the high school football national champions. I believe in the last 4 years our team has lost only 4 games with 1 state championship. Tonight starts the new season. GO TIGERS!

Yup, tonight is the night where all the dreams of a team, the fans, and the community come together in a battle on the gridiron.

I love all football games, but there is something about the magic in the air when two HS teams clash on the field.

Trion was in the Dome (home of the Falcons) in 2003. That is where the GHSA has sanctioned that the semi-final games should be played. We were hosting Lincoln Co., who is a perennial power house in Georgia, and won the state championship with freshmen and sophmores last year.

Trion was a beast when it came to running the ball. We still run the Wing-T offense, which is a mis-directional scheme. You have to have 3 speedy backs to run it effectively, but I have seen teams run it with 2 backs and a TE or a WR.

At any rate, Trion was down 21-0 going in at the half. Everyone, including us Trion fans, knew that this wasn't the Trion team that had went 9-1 in the regular season, and had won their first 3 rounds in the playoffs, all of them convincing wins against decent teams.

The second half came around, and the magic was in the air. Trion is known to be a "grape" football team..........they score in bunches, and the 2nd half was dominated by the Trion offense. We took that 21-0 deficit, and made it a 24-21 game, with less than a min to go. Lincoln Co. had the ball, on their own 20.

After 2 hail marys that were perfect, Lincoln Co. went ahead 28-24. Trion had the ball, and resorted to the pass, as there was :30 seconds left in the game.

We attempted a couple of runs, to try to tie, but when we ran out of time outs, the coach decided to give our hail mary a try.

Our QB setup, called Chapman's # (Chapman was known as "White Lightning", cause he ran like a 4.1/40), and it was a perfectly setup bootleg to the left side of the field. Chapman was wide open, with only the safety between him and endzone.....................................and our dreams were left on the field at the 6 yd. line.

The safety caught Chappie, and nailed him. Lincoln Co. went onto to play in the state title game, and lost to Hawkinsville, which is another perennial powerhouse in Georgia HS football.

Football is great game, and I hope that tonight, Trion can make their march back into the playoffs, which is already assured, since the top 4 teams in each region move on to the playoffs, and 6-A only has 4 teams.

So, here's to all the HS football teams across the nation that are already playing, and that are playing tonight. Maybe your season be free on injury, may you upset your greatest rival, and do so with respect and dignity, and may you see all your dreams come to life on the field.

Well, here's the result from Trion's season opener, at Lafayette. It wasn't at Trion, like I thought. :-[ Imagine me, sitting in front of Sam R. McCain stadium, at 7:00 PM, and not seeing ANYONE around the stadium. So, I called back home and found out it was an AWAY game, in Lafayette. I made it in time to see the kick off, so it was all good.

It is funny that you mention the Tigers because the town I live in is called the Linden-Kildare Tigers. I hope there year is better than last years. We will have to see.

Thanks Rodney.

Trion scored their first TD of the game from the first play of scrimmage, only to have it called back on a holding call, that was HIGHLY questionable. Trion would end the night with 15 penalties, I believe, for 90 yds. Lafayette, on the other hand, had 5 penalties for like 20 yds. It was clear that Trion was not liked in this game.

The win was a win, but I don't believe that it was the betterment of Trion's program. It was a game that we normally win.

Just to let you know how bad Lafayette is, we scored 28 pts. in the first half, and after the first series in the 3rd quarter, our JV was put in. Our JV didn't score on them, but their varsity squad couldn't score on our JV, and our JV came close to scoring, but had it pulled away by an INT.

Next week, we have a bigger test in Coosa, which has produced 2 teams the last two years that went deep into the playoffs.

Thanks again.

Well since we are giving scores. Katy beat a team from Kline. The score was 31-14. Katy was down 14-7 at half time. In the 2nd half the Tiger gave up only 20 total yards. Next up us the team from The Woodlands. The Woodlands beat us last year in the state championship in baseball. So a few of the players have a score to settle. Go Tigers

This is Trion's next opponent, and I know for a fact that it will be played at Sam R. McCain stadium, on beloved Clarence Blevins field, on Friday, September 18th, 2006.  Coosa is going to be a better test for Trion to compare themselves against, but I feel that Trion will pull the game out, and will win 35-14, especially if our D shows up like they did against Lafayette.

Last night's game was one for the ages in Trion football! Here's the story:

Trion was down 21-00 going into the 3rd Quarter. Trion and Coosa both, had pushed Coosa back close to the endzone, and when the QB snapped the ball, he was deep in the endzone, and ran to his left. Trion's D was following, and he threw it away, and it didn't go to the line of scrimmage. It was an intentional ground, but since it was out of the endzone, it was a safety.

Trion was down 21-02. Coosa did the free kick to Trion, and it looked like the Coosa D was going to hold Trion up, when out of NO WHERE, #6, Mark Chapman, comes around to the right side of the field, and comes all the way for a TD!

Trion is still down 21-09. Our D doesn't bend nor break, and Coosa punts it. We get the ball back, and #1, Reynolds, our QB, converts a HUGE 4th and 1, to get us a new 1st down. I believe it was Dover, #2, that ran the ball in from like the 2 yd. line, and got Trion closer.

Trion is still down 21-16, but a TD wins the game. Once again, the D that wasn't present in the first half, holds the Coosa offense, and they get the ball back on an INT. We drive down field, and Reynolds, I believe, scores the TD. Trion leads 22-21! We tried to go for 2, but was stopped.

Trion kicks off the ball, and Coosa's returner had a seam, and ran it back into Trion territory...........but it's called back and pushed back 10 yds. on a hold by Coosa. Break for Trion. Trion's D holds their offense, and we get the ball back, with like 2:30 left in the 4th Q.

Trion is going to just run the ball, and run out the clock.............when out of NO WHERE, a Coosa LB somehow gets the ball from Chapman, and starts running to the endzone. It was a shoe-string tackle that brought him down.

Coosa is on their 15 yd. line, or so. Trion allows them to get to the 2 yd. line, and it goes to 4th down, with 3.8 seconds left in the game.

Coosa sets up for the game winning FG, and it's a basic chip shot that anyone could make, being on the 2 yd. line.

Trion stacks the line, they snap the ball, and Trion blocks the FG! Trion takes a knee, after getting 2 flags for excessive celebration after the blocked FG, and we win the game.

It was such an up and down emotional roller coaster ride last night. It was well worth the $6 to get in. I honestly thought that I was going to rip the fence out of the ground, getting our D fired up, and I also thought that I was having a heart attack.........I was having pains in my upper left chest!

Way to go Bulldogs!​
