Kell High School got off to a good start in the 2012 campaign with a 19-8 victory over Fulton County powerhouse Chattahoochee. The Longhorns defense and offense were firing on all cylinders, forcing a safety and converting on a fake punt.
Brendan Langley was the offensive catalyst once again, starting his 2012 season out on the right foot with two receiving and one rushing touchdown. He was also able to earn first down yardage on a fake punt.
After a bye week last week, the Longhorns will open their home field on Friday night against the Woodstock Wolverines, who suffered a 28-0 drubbing at the hands of Johns Creek last Thursday, sending their record to 0-2.
Kell's explosive offense and punishing defense will be a tall order for the Wolverines, who have yet to encounter the likes of Langley or his teammate Quincy Mauger, who are both committed to SEC schools.
Local media also predicts a Kell victory. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chip Saye believes Kell will defeat Woodstock.
Of course, all the numbers go out the window when the teams square off on the gridiron. It's up to the Longhorns, coached by Derek Cook, to prove their Georgia Dome triumph was more than a fluke and that they will continue to be a football juggernaut in Cobb County and Georgia at large.
