OF NOTE: The last time these two teams met, it was in the second round of the Class 1A playoffs at Athens in 2016 when the Warriors gave St. Teresa its biggest scare on its run to the state title game. The Bulldogs pulled that game out 27-26, but trailed 26-14 before touchdowns by Ryan Fyke and Wright pulled St. T ahead, and the defense forced a late Athens fumble to seal it. Both teams are similar in style to the teams they were two years ago, but Wright is older and hungrier.
