Tommy Baker Field, Canton, GA

This past fall, Cherokee High School had its best season since 2007 and advanced to the second round of the state playoffs for only the sixth time in the program’s 64-year history. There is cause for even more optimism this year in Canton as a number of talented underclassmen are now established leaders for the Warriors.

The defense led the way for Cherokee last season and will likely be stout again this year, but it’s the firepower on offense that has many scouts and recruiters keeping tabs on the Warriors. Cherokee is poised for a big year and has a few players who could be well-known names by the end of 2020.

Cherokee will have a primetime spotlight to start the season when they take on Carver High School in the opening game of the Corky Kell Classic. The game will be the first scheduled high school football game in the state for the 2020 season and is tentatively scheduled for September 2 at West Forsyth High School.
