Lithonia Bulldogs (1-0) at Forsyth Central Bulldogs (0-1)
Forsyth Central High, 7:30 p.m.
Last season: Did not play
Coaches: Chris Bennett (FC); Earl White (Lithonia)
Players to watch: QB Dustin Canon, RB Phillip Ray (FC); QB Julian Bellinger, RB Cris Tobal-Dinham, WR Korenski Jones (Lithonia)
Outlook: After going 0-10 last year, Lithonia has already surpassed that win total with a 33-14 opening-week win over Avondale. Lithonia likes to run first, racking up more than 300 yards on the ground a week ago. Central will look to regroup in its home opener after falling 28-7 at McIntosh last week. This is the Region 6-AAAA opener for both teams, the first leg of a long nine-game region slate.
