ATLANTA - This region 3-AAAAAA battle might not look like a big one when you look at the overall records, but Hughes’ region record is unblemished at 4-0 and Westlake is 3-1.
The winner is in the driver’s seat for region supremacy. Bryan Love’s Lions are always tough at home and this year they’re counting on a loud stadium to take the punch out of Willie Cannon’s Panthers.
Westlake is the home of Carolina Panthers quarterback, Cam Newton. Newton was an accomplished high school player who went on to win a national championship at Auburn before heading to the NFL.
