While most high-school football teams are opening their seasons this week, the Callaway Cavaliers are having to wait.

When the Georgia High School Association decided to delay the start of the regular season by two weeks, that forced Callaway to cancel its season-opener against Opelika since Alabama didn’t adjust its schedule

Instead, Callaway will open its season on Sept. 11 against the rival Troup Tigers at Callaway Stadium.

Callaway actually ended up losing two games on its schedule against opponents from Alabama, but it did add a game against Thomas County Central.

Callaway will play eight regular-season games, beginning with next week’s showdown against Troup.

“It’ll be high emotions in that game, and it’ll be physical, and it’ll come down to the wire just like many of the other ones did,” said Callaway head coach Pete Wiggins.

After the Troup game, Callaway has three more non-region games before finishing the regular season with four Region 5-AA games.

“Hardaway, Douglass and Thomas County Central are all tough opponents,” Wiggins said. “They’re all in higher classifications than we are. We feel like those teams should prepare us for our region, and in our region, we’ll face some great challenges in Heard County, and Bremen, and Haralson County and Temple. We feel like our schedule is difficult, but it’s one that we embrace.”
