It was a solid start to the 2013 football season for all four Bulloch County schools last week.

Statesboro High football is synonymous with success. From its history of five state championships to its recent region titles to the Prow Bowler and Super Bowl champion that it can count among its ranks, there is no denying the school's high standing.

Statesboro's Sherrodric Rawls is well aware of the fact that he and the rest of his senior teammates only get one more crack at the playoffs and he intends to make the most of it.

It's a postseason party and plenty of area teams are invited. Beginning this Friday, 192 teams throughout Georgia will begin a five-week sprint to claim one of seven GHSA state championships up for grabs.
