Rabun Gap vs Sequoyah: Chiefs defense look to ground the Eagles air assault.

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Scouting the Eagles

The Rabun Gap Eagles will have their home opener this week as they host the Sequoyah Chiefs. Rabun Gap is fresh off a road win against traditional Tennessee power the Baylor School out of Chattanooga. While folks around Cherokee County might be unfamiliar with the Eagles, make no mistake about it, this small boarding school nestled in the Northeast Georgia Mountains has a roster full of talent. Receiver Trey Horne is the headliner. The senior receiver is committed to Georgia Tech. The receiving corp is bolstered by junior Tight End/Receiver Marshall Pritchett who is receiving Power-5 interest. Junior quarterback Gavin Owens threw for 2,262 yards and 19-TDs a year ago.

Scouting the Chiefs

The Sequoyah Chiefs will look to get in the win column this week. An interesting note is that the Chiefs had more offensive production through the air as Kolby Martin was able to showcase the growth in his first start of 2023. Martin passed for a pair of TDs and looked comfortable working out of the shotgun last week. While that is certainly a bright spot for the Chiefs offense, we expect them to get back to their bread and butter this week with their Wing-T offense. Look for the Chiefs to get the ball in the hands of playmakers like Jackson Hancock, Tyler Bell and Ean Marria. The Chiefs secondary will be tested by the big play receivers for Rabun Gap.

Pundit's Pick

Sequoyah will have their hands full with the pass-happy attack of Rabun Gap. Two keys for the Chiefs this week: 1. Get pressure on the quarterback 2. Ball control on offense. We like Sequoyah to keep this game close, but Rabun Gap is too deep at the skill position. Eagles by 8.
