The Jaguars will play the first region schedule in the school’s short existence in a big way this year. Every game will count towards getting them to the playoffs as they battle it out against Lithia Springs High School, all five Paulding County high schools, Villa Rica, Woodland, Allatoona and Rome.

Head coach Rob Cleveland said he will rely heavily on quarterback Trey Wilson to move the chains and keep his team in games. Middle linebacker Mundarius Wright, while he is not the biggest guy on the field, is also said by Cleveland to be a key to the success of the Jaguars this season.
