A few weeks ago, the GHSA reclassified Lee County High School from 5-A to 6-A. Now, the school is fighting to stay.
Athletic director Rob Williams presented the Trojan TMs case to the reclassification committee earlier this week. A decision is expected sometime in January.
If Lee County is forced to stay in 6-A, it TMll likely be in Region One along with Valdosta, Lowndes, Colquitt County and others. For the football program, that TMs a tall order for a team fresh off a region championship.
But coach Dean Fabrizio said his kids would embrace the change.
It would be a lot of fun for our kids to go play in those atmospheres, Fabrizio said. Now it TMd be a big challenge, but I think it TMd be a fun challenge also.
