HS Football Week 5 Predictions - Game of the Week Cartersville Hurricans vs Cherokee Warriors

1. Cartersville (4-0) vs Cherokee (4-0) – Carterville wins include Morrow (42-0), West Forsyth 28-17, Alexander (35-3), and Creekside(21-18). Cherokee wins include Carver-Atlanta (38-12), Sequoyah (41-20), Rome (21-15), and Creekview (14-9) Cartersville has now won 60 straight regular season games. Cartersville QB Stratton Tripp and WR DeVonte Ross will be a problem for Cherokee if they find their rhythm early. Cherokee has a strong run game with running back Keith Adams Jr. and could pose a problem defensively for the Canes as Coach Conor Foster admitted that containing West Forsyth’s run game was a challenge as they also had a big bruiser style running back. With thst being said, if the Chiefs can get Adams going on the ground, that can allow quarterback AJ Swann to go to work in the air. Pick - Cartersville

2. Riverdale (2-1) @ Pebblebrook (3-1) – Riverdale bounced back from their loss to Mays with a win over Drew heading into their bye week, while Pebblebrook has won three straight after dropping their season opener to Peechtree Ridge (30-28). Wins for Pebblebrook include South Cobb (40-21), Mundy’s Mill (40-13), Lithia Springs 31-26. Riverdale QB Avaun Rucker has a nice group of targets including Gamecocks commit Derwin Burgess Jr, Marcus Polite and Fred Collins, so it will be important for the Falcons defense to keep Rucker from finding his targets. Pick - Riverdale

3. Collins Hill (3-1) @ Alpharetta (1-1) – Collins Hill rebounded from their loss to No. 1 Grayson and beat Rome last week while Alpharetta pick up a win last week over Chattahoochee after losing their season opener. Collins Hill has the ability to get offensive production from a host of weapons including wide receiver Travis Hunter and running back Spenser Anderson so the Raiders defense will need to keep them contained while their offense goes to work. Pick - Collins Hill

4. Mt. Zion - Mt Zion, GA (3-0) at Dade County – North Georgia (1-2) – After only winning one game last season, Mt Zion back on course and looking to return to form of 2018, 2017, and 2016 seasons in which they 9 games or more and advanced to the playoffs. - Pick - Mt Zion
