Summer practice kicks off June 4th at 6:45 a.m. in the Teddy Carter Gym at Chamblee. Practices are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, which is a slight change from what was originally announced, and the current plan is to follow that schedule pretty much until the start of the school year, except for GHSA Dead Week the week of July 4th and the days immediately before school. There are also two contact camps currently scheduled which will add a couple of Wednesdays to the mix. As always, TeamSnap is the ultimate authority.
Chamblee's spring season finished successfully with a 29-27 win over Druid Hills at North DeKalb Stadium.
It was the first home spring game for Chamblee in at least four years, and the fans turned out to watch a close one. The Bulldogs jumped out to a 16-0 lead early, on two touchdowns by Renaldo Whitman and a safety by the Dog D, but Druid Hills roared back in the third quarter and took a 21-16 lead. Donovan Moncrief's long TD run put Chamblee back on top, and a 37-yard TD pass from Stuart Steele to Sydney Murray stretched the lead to 29-21.
With just 2:00 to play, Druid Hills drove for a touchdown, and set up for a 2-pt conversion to potentially tie the game. Sherman Allen, Darius Williams, and Ja'cari Waller-Watkins got great penetration to stop the Red Devil running back just short of the end zone.
Allen, one of the Chamblee captains, also forced two fumbles on the day.
We'll be kicking off the 2018 season with our first home scrimmage in years. Chamblee faces Druid Hills at North DeKalb Stadium Friday, May 18th at 5:30 p.m.

The two teams met last in the 2017 season opener, where Chamblee won the first game played on the new turf at North DeKalb 27-19 in a nailbiter, with Jonathan Rhone sealing the win with a forced fumble and recovery with Druid Hills driving at the Chamblee 2-yard line.

Chamblee and Georgia Tech great Roddy Jones was on hand Friday night to celebrate his legacy as DeKalb County's all-time rushing leader (5,055 yds!) and scorer (76 TDs), and to inaugurate a new award in his name recognizing the outstanding student athlete on the Chamblee varsity squad each year.
Chamblee came away with a loss on the night, 40-7 to Decatur, dropping the home team to 1-1 on the season. Photos from the game and ceremony are up on Flickr here.
Chamblee brought home a win in a wild "away" game against Druid Hills August 18th.
Chamblee prevailed 27-19 thanks in part to a last-minute fumble recovery by Jonathan Rhone with Druid Hills driving at the Chamblee 2-yd line. Chamblee's student section was out in force, and there's no way Druid Hills, a co-tenant at North DeKalb, was feeling like the home team.
Dogs of the Week were Rhone and Levinte Washington for the defense, and junior center Juan Lopez.
Chamblee kicks off the season Friday night against Druid Hills in the first game at the newly-renovated North DeKalb Stadium. Look for a new turf field, improved lights, and general stadium improvements.
