As good as Burke County has been on the football field, the other school in Waynesboro, Edmund Burke, is off to a perfect start as well and among the best in the independent ranks.
This year's Spartans are getting the job done in pretty much all aspects having outscored their opponents 107-24. From the ground game with the likes of Brandon Sharpe, Tyler Rowland and Michael Taylor to a stingy defense. There's also a lot more leaders on the field, something the Spartans were lacking a season ago.
"It's my second year here and they're doing a pretty good job of taking care of things inside the lines," said head coach Buddy Sorrow. "During the week, I can chew butt and do what I want to here but on that game on Friday night, I've got to be on the sideline."
It will be a tall task for them this week as they take on Robert Toombs, another undefeated team that's also ranked in the top 10. That game is in Waynesboro on Friday.
