When you think of Forsyth County, you don’t usually think about high school football. The county just north of Fulton County, home of Atlanta, Forsyth County isn’t one to pump out prospects on a yearly basis. Just over 10 years ago there were only three public high schools in the county, now there are six high schools with another being built. The population continues to grow in Forsyth County, and so does the football talent.

Here are a few notable prospects in Forsyth County to keep an eye on this upcoming season.

The powerful 6-foot-5 300-pound lineman is also a state champion wrestler in the heavyweight division. There aren’t many at 300-pounds who can move like Fairchild. Not only does he have great upper and lower body strength, he moves like a cat and has come a long way with his footwork. He’s a warrior in the weight room and one of the hardest workers you’ll see across the state.
