#5- Walton High School

A Look Back

Coming off a State Championship season from 2019, the Raiders showed continued promise in the 2020 season. The Raiders opened last season at home with a close win over Westminster (9-7) before dropping game two in a rematch of the 2019 Championship Game to Lambert (7-5). The win over Westminster along with wins over Allatoona (10-9 OT) and Cambridge (12-6) highlighted the 2020 shortened season.

2021 Players to Watch

Key returners James Gurr (M) and Lee Butler (A) lead the way for the Raiders in 2021. Gurr is poised for another great season at the midfield before he heads to Ohio State next year. On the attack, Butler looks to continue as a scoring threat, hoping for a third consecutive season as the team's leader in points. Along with Gurr, Logan Myers has a strong, athletic presence at midfield and will be a go-to guy for the Raiders.

Schedule Highlights

With talent at every position and many returning players on offense, the Raiders are excited for a big home stand of Mill Creek, Milton, Roswell, Pope, Lassiter - all in a row. Of those, the Pope and Lassiter games are consistently exciting Region contests.
