Lovers of Northeast Cobb's three high school football teams will have to spend a little more time on the road in order to attend this week's action in person.

Let's see where our road warriors will be and who they will be up against. The Longhorns are coming off a 42-13 loss at the hands of rival Lassiter, and look to rebound at Creekview.

Despite 3 fumbled punts, Kell got big contributions on both sides of the ball to cruise to the victory.
The Kell Longhorns improved their record to 2-0 with a 27-10 victory over the Woodstock Wolverines in their home opener Friday night. After a sluggish start, highlighted by a botched snap on a punt that lead to a Woodstock safety and a 2-0 lead for the Wolverines, Kell first got on the board with 2:44 left in the first, when Michael Valero caught a pass and forced his way into the end zone. The next points came from the foot of Cameron Massung, who drilled a 27 yard field goal to extend the lead to 10-2 with 7:55 to go in the second quarter.

Kell looks to continue where they left off during the Corky Kell Classic at the Georgia Dome.
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.

The Longhorns' safety decided in secret last week to play for UGA.
In a move that was meant to surprise his mother, Kell High School football safety Quincy Mauger announced his verbal commitment to the University of Georgia Bulldogs before the start of the school's prospect camp on Friday. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Mauger had picked Georgia over the University of Central Florida last week, but kept his decision close to the vest until the announcement just before the annual "Dawg Night" camp. “I picked Georgia because it has everything I need to be successful with academics and on the football. It’s a great opportunity, and I took it,” said Mauger in the AJC. It remains to be seen whether or not Mauger's decision will influence Brendan Langley, who is also attending the camp despite …
