After two years of Georgia high schools taking-on Alabama high schools at the Cam Newton C1N Classic in Atlanta, Georgia, the 3rd annual event is expanding to include teams from Florida, South Carolina and Texas.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the highlight for the four-game event will be IMG Academy (Florida), ranked No. 6 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, squaring-off with No. 11 Dutch Fork, South Carolina’s 4-time defending state champ. The game will be played September 5 at the 10,000 seat Lakewood Stadium in ATL.

Dutch Fork head coach Tom Knotts, the 2019 High School Football America National Coach of the Year, announced the matchup on our podcast last month.

The event will start Friday night, September 4 when the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback’s alma mater Westlake hosts Viera High School from Florida. Westlake is a perfect 2-0 in the event with wins over Alabama’s Jefferson Davis and Sidney Lanier.

In addition to the Dutch Fork-IMG matchup on Saturday, South Carolina’s Spring Valley will meet Carver-Columbus from Georgia and Florida’s Godby High will take-on Atlanta’s Carver High.

The other two matchups in the six-game event are: Eagle’s Landing Christian (Georgia) vs. Cedar Hill Trinity Christian (Texas) and Oceanside (South Carolina) vs. Hapeville Charter (Georgia)
