DEKALB COUNTY, GA— “Buck” Godfrey Stadium plays host to three games this week including a Thursday night game and a Friday doubleheader, one of four on Friday (Oct. 29) in DeKalb stadiums.

A neighborhood rivalry opens the week at Godfrey as Lithonia (2-6) entertains Arabia Mountain (3-6). The game features two of the top running backs in DeKalb in Lithonia’s Delano Jean-Jacques (714 yards, 6 TDs) and Arabia Mountain’s Solomon Rayton who is hovering around 800 yards and 8 TDs on the year.

Stephenson (5-3, 1-3) travels to Banneker in another Thursday night game to take on Hapeville Charter (3-5) with a Region 6-4A playoff spot on the line after losing three consecutive games after a 5-0 start.

Godfrey is hosting a pair of region tilts in its Friday doubleheader. The Towers Titans (2-6) entertain Region 6-2A foe Therrell (1-7) in the 5:15 pm opener. Towers features one of the most productive quarterback/receiver duos in quarterback Isaiah Logan (1,347 yards passing, 9 TDs) and receiver Keshawn Weathers (49 receptions, 732 yards, 4 TDs).

The nightcap has the No. 1 ranked Cedar Grove Saints (6-2) hosting Douglass (1-7) in a Region 5-3A clash with the Saints looking to go 6-0 in region play. The Saints are led by 1,000-yard rusher Rashod Dubinion (1,009 yards, 14 TDs) on offense and All-State player Christian Miller (3 tackles for a loss of 18 yards vs. Westminster) on defense.
