Samir Ramic's field goal lifts the Black Knights to a 30-27 win.
Eman Westmoreland was crowned king twice Friday night during Central Gwinnett's Homecoming football game against Parkview at home in Lawrenceville. At halftime, the talented quarterback was named Homecoming King. By the end of the evening he was king of the gridiron after leading the Black Knights to a 30-27 three-overtime win over the Panthers, who entered the game state-ranked and in first place in Region 8-AAAAAA.

Even students at rival Archer remembered the Black Knight.
The gym at Central Gwinnett High School was packed Tuesday night. Not just because the Black Knights were playing cross-town rival Archer Tigers, but to remember Jerry Coleman. Just one year ago, Coleman was on that same basketball court dunking over opponents. Now the Central Gwinnett community honored him before the start of the boys basketball game.

Band Director Chad Deal shared Coleman's passion for drumming and the drum…

Black Knights and Comets each gain more than 600 yards in high-scoring game.
Both the South Gwinnett Comets and the Central Gwinnett Black Knights piled up more than 600 yards of total offense each in a back-and-forth high-scoring affair in the Georgia Dome, with South Gwinnett coming away with a 63-55 win. The game's outcome came down to the final play. With Central Gwinnett on South's 15-yard line, Central quarterback Emmanuel Westmoreland was sacked to secure the win for the Comets.
