    Sports Turf Company to Renovate Cobb County Schools Football Fields

    Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce they have been awarded the renovation project for Cobb County schools to replace the synthetic fields at all 16 of the county’s high schools. This is an exceptionally large replacement contract with a very tight schedule for the project. “This was a major decision for Cobb County staff and the Cobb County Board of Education and will greatly benefit Cobb students who use the county’s stadium fields,” said Cobb County School District Athletic Director Don Baker. “In our judgment, Sports Turf Company and AstroTurf provided the best value for our school system.

    Take the 2019 Chevy Blazer to See Two Beautiful Atlanta Stadiums

    A couple week ago, we had the honor of checking out the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. Instead, of riding around town or going out of town we visited a couple of places. We used the vehicle to head to the Falcons home opener on Sunday night. Being that I’m an Eagles fan, we didn’t get the results we wanted, but enjoyed my time. This was a time for me to reconnect with one of my cousins. The Mercedes-Benz Stadium is one of the more beautiful stadiums you’ll ever see. During our time there, we met a lot of fans from various places and they shared the same sentiments. The atmosphere was…

    Atlanta Falcons Need To Consider New Offensive Coordinator

    The Atlanta Falcons are just a couple of years removed from playing in the Super Bowl. And while their roster is largely the same as the one who played in that game, the team looks like a shell of its former self, as the Falcons have struggled to find ways to put points on the board. With their playoff hopes all but gone for 2018, the Falcons need to think about their future, and consider a future without current offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. Sarkisian took over for former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who left the Falcons after their Super Bowl collapse to take the head coaching job of the San…

If you love to watch the best players in the country, Atlanta will be the place to be starting June 11th. The Rose Classic Basketball tournament makes it way to Duluth High School from June 11th– June 13th. The championship game will be held on June 14th at Georgia Tech.

    Matt Ryan Signs Historic Contract Extension with Falcons

    After Kirk Cousins signed with the Minnesota Vikings for $84 million guaranteed, everyone knew Matt Ryan was next. Many expected his new deal would be higher than Cousins and it was.

In the process, Matt Ryan have become the first player in the NFL to average a $30 million dollar a year average.

The contracts of Ryan and Cousins are followed by San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo ($27.5…
