Kell’s Bo Benincosa (11) and Miykayah Vinson (20) break up a pass in their Nov. 1, 2019 game against Hiram.

Following a regular season marked by challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, only one Paulding County school has advanced to the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) football state playoffs.

Hiram is the county’s lone hope for a state title after qualifying for the postseason, with the first-round games Nov. 27 and 28 and the second round Dec 4 and 5. Results of the first-round contests were not available at the Neighbor’s print deadline.

In Class 5A, Hiram (1-9) travels to New Manchester in the first round, with the victor facing the Southwest DeKalb-Eastside winner in the second round.
