The 2018-19 high school season has come to an end. A lot of talent comes out of other areas besides Atlanta. Columbus, Savannah, Macon, Augusta, and Albany all has some rich homegrown talent. One area in the state of Georgia that goes unnoticed, is the Rome, Georgia area. This area is known for its excellent talent in football.
