Team of the Week pep rally at Forsyth Central HS

Congrats to the Forsyth Central Bulldogs - our High 5 Sports Team of the Week!

It's still early in region play, but the Bulldogs (5-1) are tied atop the standings with Milton and South Forsyth, employing a stingy defense that allows an average of just seven points per game.

The atmosphere is sure to be electric as Forsyth Central goes for their second region win behind a group of upperclassmen who seem to have matured at just the right time.

"It's more than anything for our senior class," said offensive lineman Garrett Nash. "We want to prove ourselves to our team, our school and our county."

The Bulldogs' turnaround from a winless 2017 season earned them a place on the High 5 Sports Facebook poll. From there, the Forsyth Central fanbase voted nearly 4,000 times to beat four other schools and claim their first Hand Trophy, which was be presented at a live Thursday morning pep rally on Good Day Atlanta.
