No injuries reported in wreck at Dawson County High

News

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – Today (Sept. 18) at approximately 7:30 a.m., troopers from the Cumming Post of the Georgia State Patrol were called to investigate a crash on Perimeter Road in front of Dawson County High School.

A white GMC Yukon, driven by 32-year-old Gloria Marie Cruz of Dawsonville, was attempting to turn left from the Dawson County High School driveway onto Perimeter Road.  Cruz failed to yield to a black Dodge Ram 1500 truck, driven by 17-year-old Aaron David Muilenburg from Dawsonville, who was traveling north on Perimeter Road.

The front of the Yukon struck the right side of the Ram truck.  This impact caused the Ram truck to veer to the left into the central turn lane where it collided head on with a white Ford Expedition, driven by 45-year-old William Johnny Holtzclaw of Dawsonville.

In the Yukon, there were two passengers, a 6-month old female and a 5-year-old female.  Both children were properly restrained in the correct type of car seat. Everyone involved was properly restrained by seatbelts and no injuries were reported.

Alcohol and drugs were not a factor in this crash.

Cruz was cited for failure to yield after stopping at the stop sign.

According to one county commissioner, the Board of Commissioners and Board of Education agreed earlier this year to provide funding for someone from the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office direct traffic at schools in the morning and afternoon. Witnesses said there was no one directing traffic at the time of the accident.

Pre-season football interview with Dawson County Tigers head coach Sid Maxwell

Dawson County High School, Dawson County High School, Sports, Team FYN Sports

Sid Maxwell is going into his fourth season as head coach for the Dawson County Tigers, and in those four years he has helped to create a successful program that reaches beyond the high school team and into the feeder programs. His philosophy? Three words: trust, care and commitment.

“It’s just a system that young men know that whatever we do we’re going to try to make them a better athlete,” said Coach Maxwell. “They also know I’m never gonna ask them to do anything that doesn’t have a purpose.”

The Tigers went 10-2 in their season last year, but Coach Maxwell knows how the keep the guys humble. Especially for seniors who may be stepping up for their final season.

“Some people…you put that crown on their head and they feel like they’re better than everyone else because you made them a leader. When they raise their head up, what happens to their crown? It falls off.” said Coach Maxwell. “So the guys we anoint going into this season are going to be the ones that keep the crown on their head.”

Dawson County Tigers preparing for season at North Forsyth camp

Dawson County High School, Dawson County High School, Sports, Team FYN Sports

With the regular season only weeks away, high school teams in the North Georgia area know that they have to take every chance they can to get better. That’s exactly what the Dawson County Tigers and several other teams from the North Georgia/metro-Atlanta area are doing this week at the North Forsyth High School contact camp.

The camp started this morning at 9 a.m. and lasted until around noon. Each team had a chance to play in a scrimmage game twice. Teams will return again tomorrow at the same time.

The scrimmage games were played in a format that allowed seven to eight minutes of possession time for each team. After time ran out the teams would change possession. Plays were stopped at first contact with the ball carrier.

The Tigers scrimmaged Southwest DeKalb for the first game. This game was played at a slower pace so the Tigers could rotate players. Junior Varsity and Varsity teams were present for the Tigers, so the rotation schedule allowed playing time for both teams.

An interception caught for the Tigers in their first scrimmage game against Southwest DeKalb High School.

Dawson County scrimmaged Collins Hill in the second game. Although this game was played in the same format as the first, it was played at a faster pace to focus on moving the ball and gaining yardage. Each game lasted an hour and a half.

“We’ve got a very young squad, a lot of these guys are just trying to get their feet wet before we officially kick off next week,” said Sid Maxwell, head coach for the Tigers. “[We’re] Just trying to get another chance to come out and play somebody.”

Maxwell said that this camp is the third contact camp for the Tigers this summer, and they are gearing up for the start of their mandatory practices next week.
