2013 Glory For Christ football Season
The GFC football league consists of Christian school, Catholic school, private school and homeschool teams that play 11-man high school tackle football. We have teams from Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.
Last year was an unusual year for the GFC as the East Atlanta Mustangs won the championship despite finishing in third place of the East Division. For the first time ever, the GFC Champion did not finish as the regular season champion which shows the competitiveness of the league. This season will likely provide a number of surprises as the league expands and continues to draw competitive football teams.
The East Division teams include: Anderson Cavaliers, Augusta Eagles, Augusta Prep Cavaliers, East Atlanta Mustangs, Georgia Force and Skipstone Academy Warriors.
The West Division teams include: Crown Knights, Freedom Academy Cowboys, Grace Christian Eagles, Holy Spirit Cougars, Johnson Ferry Saints and North Georgia Falcons

Congratulations to Adam Hardy and Isaac Florence who played for Grace Christian and have signed letters of intent to play football at college. Adam will play at Point University here in Georgia while Isaac will play for Taylor University in Indiana.
2012 GFC Football Season
North All-Stars win Chamber Bowl 30-22, Mike Randle named MVP
The 2012 Chamber Bowl All-Star Game was held December 22 with four Falcons and two coaches representing the North Team. The North Team defeated the South Team with the help of Mike Randle, Gordon Thigpen, TJ Denny and Zane McDaniel. Roger McDaniel and Hank St.Denis helped coach the North Team. Randle and McDaniel played offense while Thigpen and Denny played defense. Mike Randle was selected as the Most Valuable Player of the game as he scored the first touchdown for the North on a 2 yard run at the start of the second quarter, after making a spectacular catch and run on the play before it. Randle also caught a 33 yard touchdown pass from Skye Overton (quarterback from Johns Creek High School) on the first drive of the third quarter. Randle had over 100 all-purpose yards along with the two touchdowns. Zane McDaniel played slot back and wide receiver in addition to playing on several special teams. TJ Denny played outside linebacker while Gordon Thigpen played cornerback for the defense which held the South to 7 point until the fourth quarter when the score was 30-7.

East Atlanta wins 2012 GFC Championship
The East Atlanta Mustangs beat the Anderson Cavaliers 20-14. The Mustangs fell behind 7-0 with 10:17 left in the first quarter after Davis Cousar threw a touchdown pass to Isaac Moorhouse. Daniel Nguyen added the extra point to give the Cavs a 7-0 lead. East Atlanta answered with a drive scoring from 4 yards out. The extra point was no good so Anderson led 7-6. Late in the first quarter, Tavaris Ricardson scored for the Cavs from 12 yards out. After the extra point was made, Anderson led 14-6. East Atlanta cut the lead to 14-12 after they scored with 6:27 left in the first half when Davante Adams scored from 2 yards out.
The 3rd quarter was scoreless and for much of the 4th quarter it was back and forth up the field for both teams. Anderson had an opportunity to score when they reached the 1 yard line, however, a penalty pushed them back and the Mustangs recovered a fumble inside the 5. The Mustangs then drove all the way down the field and were able to score with 4:46 left in the game. The Mustangs went for two points and QB Kevin Ard connected with Khadyle Curry for the conversion and the final score of 20-14.
NCAA Eligibility for high school students looking to play College sports
Any high school students (public, private, Christian or Homeschool), looking to play a sport in college, must register and meet the eligibility requirements as approved by the NCAA prior to being able to participate. The information on acceptable requirements for GPA, SAT and/or ACT scores as well as the paperwork needed are found on the NCAA website. Below is the link to the website. If you have any interest at all, you need to register and get the information to them asap, especially if you are entering your senior year or are in your senior year of high school.
Division I Initial-Eligibility Changes – Class of 2016
The changes adopted by the Division I Board of Directors continue to use a student-athlete’s grades in high school core courses in combination with the student-athlete’s ACT or SAT score and core-course accumulation.
Prospective student-athletes who achieve the current minimum initial-eligibility standard on the test score-GPA sliding scale with at least a minimum 2.0 core-course GPA would continue to be eligible for athletically related financial aid during the first year of enrollment and practice during the first regular academic term of enrollment. Student-athletes serving this academic redshirt year would have to successfully complete nine semester or eight quarter hours during their first academic term to be eligible for practice during their second term.
For immediate access to competition, prospective student-athletes will be required to present at least a 2.3 GPA and an increased sliding-scale credential. Specifically, prospects need to earn about a half-point higher GPA for a given test score compared to the standard for aid and practice. For example, an SAT score of 1,000 would require a 2.5 high school core-course GPA for competition and a 2.0 high school core-course GPA for aid and practice.
Incoming student-athletes will be required to successfully complete 10 of the 16 total required core courses before the start of their senior year in high school. Seven of those 10 courses must be in English, math and science.
