John Milledge Academy and Georgia Military College Prep to Renew Football Rivalry

Mr. Mark Hopkins, John Milledge Academy Head of School, JMA Head Coach J.T. Wall, COL Pam Grant, Georgia Military College Prep Principal, and GMC Prep Head Coach Steven Simpson, announced today that JMA and GMC will renew their football rivalry October 7, 7:30 p.m. at JMA’s Trojan Field.  The game will be one of the first GISA-GHSA competitions in Georgia and the first meeting of the two teams since 1986-87.    In conjunction with the game, JMA and GMC will sponsor a joint Pink-Out and will sell tee-shirts to benefit the Georgia Cancer Treatment Center in Milledgeville.

COL Pam Grant said, “This will be a healthy competition and a great way to bring the schools and students together, and the community, as well as supporting a wonderful cause.”

“More than just a game, more than just a hometown rivalry, this is an opportunity for our two great schools to make a difference in our own community,” Mark Hopkins quoted.

JMA Head Coach J.T. Wall, and GMC Prep Head Coach Steven Simpson, attended preschool together and played football together at John Milledge before graduating from the school in 1998.
