Schley County Wildcat football players earn All-Region honors
From Staff Reports
ELLAVILLE – The Schley County High School football team had another successful season in 2019. The Wildcats finished the season with a record of 7-5 and nearly advanced to the third round of the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Class A-Public State Playoffs. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, they lost another hard-fought contest to their archrivals Marion County 35-27 to end their season.
However, several Wildcats shined on the field in 2019. Now it is time to “give honor to whom honor is due”.
Region 4-A recently released its selections for the All-Region first and second teams, as well as Honorable Mention. Senior defensive end Zykevious Walker, who recently verbally committed to Auburn, was named the Region 4-A Defensive Player of the Year. Walker will officially sign his letter of intent to play for the Tigers on Wednesday, December 18.
