The Glory For Christ football league has lost one of it’s founding members as Roger McDaniel, last evening, went to be with the Lord. The head coach for the North Georgia Falcons since it’s beginning, Roger’s passion and love help build homeschool football and in particular, the Falcons, into a recognized brand both in Georgia and throughout the country. As I reflect back on all the times I spent with Roger, he was the definition of selfless to me. He gave so much of his time, effort and money to help people (players and parents) not only with the Falcons but with other teams. He always had time to talk, give encouragement, advice and even a little discipline now and then when it called for it. Roger was a true servant of the Lord.
GFC CHAMPIONS: NORTH GEORGIA FALCONS
The Falcons beat the East Atlanta Mustangs 18-0 to become the 2016 GFC Champions. The Falcons scored to make it 6-0 in the first quarter on a short run by Trey Baker. In the second quarter, Josiah France scored on a short run to make the score 12-0. In the 3rd quarter, linebacker George Mitchell picked up a fumble and took it to the house, giving the Falcons the margin of victory 18-0.
Lanier Christian defeats Coastal Hurricanes 36-8. After leading 10-0 in the first half, the Lightning finally were able to put together their best half of the season by scoring 26 points.
The 2016 GFC Championship Game will be this Saturday, Oct 29th at 5:00 at Gainesville Middle School. The East Atlanta Mustangs will play the North Georgia Falcons. The two teams split their regular season games with North Georgia beating the Mustangs 21 to 6 early in September and the Mustangs knocking off the Falcons 26 to 18 a few weeks ago. It should be a great game!

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.
