Callaway took a 47-7 tough loss to AAAA powerhouse Cedartown on Friday. There were precious few positives for the Cavaliers who started their season playing one of the best teams in AAAAAAA in Alabama and one of the top teams regardless of classification in Georgia – Cedartown.   

Callaway was trailing by 28 at the half and could not mount a comeback in the second half. Quay Whitfield scored the only touchdown of the game for the Cavaliers as he ran it in for six in the second half.

It has been a brutal opening stretch of opponents for the Cavaliers as both Opelike and Cedartown are ranked in the 10 of their respective classifications. It will not get any easier for the Cavaliers next week as they take on Troup at Callaway Stadium on Friday. Troup is ranked eighth in the state in AAAA according to Georgia High School Football Daily’s composite rankings. The Cavaliers started the season 0-2 for the first time since the 2011 season.
