Battle of the Unbeatens

The Cadets' 2012 campaign hits I-16 this week for a Friday night showdown against #5 Vidalia. What seemed to be a David and Goliath situation mere weeks ago is now looking like a legitimate contest for what could end up being the region title. Yes, it is true, the Cadets really do have a chance to knock off a ranked opponent and, in so doing, return to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution high school football rankings for the first time in a decade and-a-half. 

The last time BC was ranked?  You'd have to go all the way back to October of 1998. The Cadets were #15 (yes, back when the AJC included "teens" in the weekly poll) the night Glynn Academy (our most heated rival at the time) and Antwan Andrews upset a homecoming crowd at Memorial Stadium our sophomore year.

I'm pumped about our chances on Friday and hope everyone can make it.  If I can drive three hours, I don't quite understand how everyone else can't drive just one.  This is by no means the best team BC has ever had, but if the Cadets are able to pull out a W in a territory as hostile and competitive as Vidalia, it will go down as one of the key accomplishments and a benchmark in BC's slow but steady return to greatness under Britt.

Hut one, hut two.
