Coffee vs. Lee County: By the numbers


Region 1-AAAAAA rivals Coffee and Lee County will try again to settle the Class AAAAAA football championship when they meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Lee County’s Trojan Field.

The teams originally were scheduled to play last Friday at 8 p.m. in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but the game was one of six championships postponed because of the winter storm that dropped as much as a foot of snow in parts of the metro Atlanta area.

This will be the teams’ second meeting in six weeks. Lee County defeated visiting Coffee 23-7 in the regular-season finale on Nov. 3 in a game that decided the championship in Region 1.
