Class AAA - Region 5
brought to you by:

Some of the state's top prospects will make their home in this region. This region is one of five in the classification that will subdivide. The A subregion is made up of Carver-Atlanta, Clarkston, McNair, South Atlanta, Southside, Therrell and Towers. Blessed Trinity, Chamblee, Druid Hills, Dunwoody, Grady, North Atlanta, Riverwood and Westminster comprise the B subregion.

McNair just missed the postseason last year and should be the favorite in the A subregion. The team will be anchored by possibly the best linebacking tandem in the state in seniors Larry Harris (6-0, 190) and Fonterrian Ingram (5-11, 185).
Towers returns a wealth of talent and should give McNair a run. Seniors Dervon Wallace (5-11, 165), Cimiyun Sullivan (5-11, 163) and Davion Harper (6-0, 145) form a strong defensive secondary.

Southside and Clarkston have some solid returning talent and could make a postseason run. Carver-Atlanta is moving up after struggling in Class AA. Carver, Therrell and South Atlanta won't figure in the playoff race.

The B subregion should come down between Chamblee and Grady. Chamblee returns 16 starters and one of the state's top running backs in Roddy Jones (5-10, 185), a four-star prospect by scout.com.

Grady, which finished 13-1 in Class AA last season, moves up and should give Chamblee a run. Grady features two of the region's more-exciting players in running back Dexter Barnett (5-10, 172) and quarterback Simeon Kelley (5-10, 160), who both return for their senior seasons.

Blessed Trinity should also figure in the postseason race after finishing 6-5 last year as well as Westminster and Dunwoody. Both teams return a solid group of underclassmen.

North Atlanta is dropping down after a 5-5 campaign in Class AAAA. Riverwood and Druid Hills round out the subregion.
