Scrimmage games are starting this week in Gwinnett County. Brookwood already had their game at Flowery Branch on Wednesday (Aug. 14), which they tied 17-17, according to the Gainesville Times.
But on Friday (Aug. 16), South Gwinnett will be at Mountain View and Shiloh will play at Rockdale County.
Patch sent a short questionnaire to Troy Hobbs, the head coach for the Shiloh Generals, to ask a little bit about the Snellville team. He was named the new head coach in May 2012 after former coach Brian Montgomery resigned due to illness. (He also left during an investigation into alleged recruitment violations.) Before Shiloh, Hobbs served as the head boys track coach, the wide receivers coach and the special teams coordinator under Bob Sphire at North Gwinnett.
Here's a little bit more about the Shiloh coach:
