Football Notebook: Henry County receivers to be profiled on weekly TV show

A case of football fever is running through the halls of Henry County High School. The Warhawks are off to a fast 3-1 start and are thinking about the playoffs as they hit the midway point of the season.

The Warhwks go into this week's Region 4-AAA opener against Jackson on a three-game winning streak. After getting stunned by Dutchtown in the season opener, the Warhawks have won three games in a row.

Henry County, which has had 13-straight losing seasons, can attribute its fast start to its high flying offense.

Junior Drew Little, who has already been offered a scholarship to Georgia Tech, threw for 515 yards in last week's victory at Perry.

Little has two favorite targets on this year's team. Senior Chris Jackson, who has verbally committed to Georgia Tech for next year and senior Alakan Thomas are closing out their high school careers on high notes.

The two wide receivers will be profiled on this week's Prep Sports Plus.

The Georgia Public show will air starting Thursday at 7:30 p.m

Airing it out: The Eagle's Landing Christian Academy Chargers are catching on to first-year head coach Jonathan Gess' spread offense.

In last Friday night's victory against Social Circle, Wes Carter and company got their offensive rolling to the tune of 194 yards through the air.

The win moved the club's record to 3-1.

Carter hooked up with Jordan Clanton for nine passes, including one for a TD.

It won't get any easier for the Chargers as they play host to state-ranked Bremen Friday night.

Bremen comes into the game with a perfect 5-0 record.

Thursday night under the lights: The Forest Park Panthers and the Jonesboro Cardinals are hoping the month of October brings success.

Jonesboro comes into the Thursday night tussle with a 1-3 record after beating Morrow.

Although Forest Park managed a tie against Mundy's Mill, they haven't won a game since beat Morrow and Jonesboro in the 2005 season.

The Jonesboro-Forest Park series is the oldest among county rivals, with Forest Park holding a 37-14 record.
