The defending champion Cougars were eliminated from the playoffs with a 20-6 loss in the second round.
The defending Georgia High School Association Class AAAA state champion Chattahoochee Cougars saw their season end in their second round playoff matchup against the Warner Robins Demons with a 20-6 loss on Friday. The Cougars (10-2), who were not able to get their offense in gear, were unable to control the Demons' potent ground game.

The Cougars (10-1) host Warner Robins (9-2) in the second round of the Class AAAA football playoffs.
Are you concerned about Chattahoochee's chances of beating Warner Robins Friday night and advancing in the Class AAAA football playoffs? Don't be.

There's a New Kid in Town: After state player of the year Timmy Byerly graduated last year, many wondered what the Cougars would do at quarterback. No worries, mates. Travis …

High School Football Predictions: Chattahoochee and Johns Creek should advance.
High School Football Predictions Habersham Central (6-4) at Chattahoochee (9-1) Habersham, which is making its first playoff in four seasons, knows points — scoring ‘em and giving ‘em up. The Raiders, who were fourth in Region 8-AAAA, has scored more than 40 points five times this season, but they’ve also given up more than 40 four times, and 34 or more seven times. Being able to score gives the Raiders a puncher’s chance in this game, but defense, as they say, wins championships. The defending state champion Chattahoochee Cougars haven’t given up more than 24 points in a single game and have allowed only 25 points in their last four. Quarterback Travis Marshall has had a steady hand running the ‘Hooch offense, which has a number of …
