By order from Governor Brian Kemp, the GHSA has cancelled ALL Spring Sports for 2020. Our hearts go out to the players and their families especially the Senior Class of 2020. Better days are ahead so lets all do the right things and get to other side. Much love and respect for our 912 Sports family to yours.

When you played varsity baseball for 3 years and you have 2 State Championship rings what do you do for a swan song your senior year? Win number 3 of Course. Jeff Davis Yellow Jacket Britt Metts has that opportunity before him. It’s incredible to win a state title in high school but to have a shot at 3 is almost unheard of in today’s sports world. Britt, now a leader on the team for Coach Paul Glass, has the talent and demeanor to get the job done.
Look for the Jackets to be playing for it all in May
A three-year starter for the Ware County Gators, Bryson Wheeler is a baseball guy. He studies the game; he’s a baseball history buff and he can quote you on just about any MLB player suiting up today. Coach Ammons now in his 3rd season will count on Wheeler to be his ace on the mound as well as playing solid infield for the Gators on the days he’s not pitching. Wheeler played in the Valdosta Invitational and was masterful on the mound. Wheeler gave up 1 earned run in 5
innings pitched. If he can duplicate those numbers throughout the season the Gators will be a tough out in region 2-AAAAA.
The adage “they don’t rebuild, they reload” is true for the Wayne County Yellow Jackets. Coach Justin McDonald has built one of the best programs in AAAAA in the state. The
Jackets are only 2 years removed from playing for a state title and with senior leadership like Jasper Stanfield the Jackets could be poised for another run. Stanfield is considered one of the best pitchers in the 912, winning Region 2-AAAAA Pitcher of the Year as a junior. If Coach McDonald gets a repeat performance
from Stanfield in 2020 look out as Wayne will be tough to beat.
