Benjamin E. Mays Raiders brings GHSA state quarterfinal football contest to Lakewood Stadium


Coach Jarvis and players from the Mays Raiders football team at the 2014 APS Media Day event.

Congratulations are in order AGAIN for our Benjamin E. Mays Raiders football team! They pulled off a spectacular upset last Friday with a 21-18 victory over the number one ranked Ware County Gators in Waycross, Ga.

The Raiders now advance to the Georgia High School Association state quarterfinals for the first time in school history and host the Jones County Greyhounds at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 28 at Lakewood Stadium. This is the first time in four years that APS has hosted a quarterfinal football contest. The Grady Knights were the last to accomplish this in 2010.

Come show your Raider and APS pride! Tickets to the game this Friday are $12.

Congratulations to Coach Jarvis and his football team. The entire district is cheering for you and supporting our students this weekend as they compete to advance to the semi-finals of the GHSA state playoffs.
