In the past several years, the Lawrenceville high school has received much interest from college football recruiters.
Central Gwinnett High School has become a hotbed for college coaches, according to one recent ESPN report. Two years ago, there was earnest recruiting of Francis Kallon, a defensive end who went on to sign with Georgia Tech. Then there was Trey Johnson, who landed in the ESPN 150. Last year, the top linebacker was aggressively pursued, and he eventually signed with Ohio State. This year, it's been Darious Latimore.

For the Bulldogs, the hype about a possible national championship has begun.
Georgia's Athletic Director Greg McGarity might have been prescient when he asserted earlier this season that Georgia Tech, and not Florida, is really the Bulldogs' biggest rival. Who would have predicted a month ago that so much would ride on this weekend's in-state matchup? Georgia survived the easier of its back-to-back triple-option challenges by defeating Georgia Southern last week. Now the Bulldogs, suddenly catapulted to No. 3 in the BCS standings, must withstand a visit from Georgia Tech before turning their attention to the SEC Championship game, likely against No. 2 Alabama.

"In our increasingly global environment, if we reduce our investment in education and research while other countries increase theirs, we could compromise the very advantages that have made America strong." The presidents call for …
