A quick look at where to watch former Gwinnett standouts in today's college football action:
SUWANEE -- Colquitt County head coach Rush Probst had no answer for the North Gwinnett defense. In fact, he wondered if his team could reach the end zone against the stingy defense.
The turnaround wasn't going to happen overnight, something Randy Sides knew when he signed with a struggling West Georgia football team back in 2008.
FLOWERY BRANCH -- Ray Edwards longs to prove that the Atlanta Falcons were wise to sign him to a $30 million contract.
LOGANVILLE -- When Grayson took the opening kickoff and went 59 yards in five plays to take a 7-0 lead over Lowndes, it seemed unlikely the game would come down to the Rams' defense having to rise up in the end.
CLARKSTON -- With 9 seconds remaining, everything favored Brookwood. M.L. King stood 31 yards from the end zone, facing fourth down and the Broncos were up 21-14. Nine seconds later, the two teams were headed to overtime.
With J.C. Boscan, Wilkin Castillo and Wil Nieves all free agents, the Atlanta Braves signed Jose Yepez to give Gwinnett a veteran catching option for 2012.
ATLANTA -- Do you know what will happen when Jesus comes back to the world to collect his people? No one knows exactly what may ensue, but that didn't stop the Rev. William Sheals of Hopewell Missionary Baptist
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama's seniors are poised to become the program's winningest class.
NEWARK, N.J. -- A long-running cold case that began with the disappearance of five New Jersey teenagers in 1978 and languished for more than three decades before winding up in court this month was placed in the hands of a jury Friday.
LAWRENCEVILLE -- Mountain View's girls basketball team came back from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat Central Gwinnett 46-45 in Friday's season opener.
I woke up Thursday morning with an appetite for some good news — which has been a rare commodity these days. I turned on the coffee pot, as is my custom, and the dog and I walked up our long driveway to pick up the morning papers.
