The last time GCT was in the playoffs was in 1991, GCT put up some impressive offensive numbers last year by averaging 35 points a game.

Paragould underwent some changes after the 2008 season. The Rams will have a new head coach patrolling the sidelines with Tim Branum taking the reigns. Paragould finished tied for 6th  in the 5A East with GCT, and finishing with a (4-6) record. The Rams are on a playoff drought also, they haven't been since 2004.
