Which team is going to win Patch readers' Gwinnett Game of the Week, as well as other games?
Editor's Note: This week's Patch Gwinnett Game of the Week was determined by a weekly readers' poll that posts every Tuesday. This week, readers overwhelmingly chose Dacula vs. Mill Creek. For Mill Creek and Dacula high schools, last football season was a prime example why you can't take early games as make-or-break encounters. Cases in point: Dacula lost its first two games (including a 35-27 decision to Mill Creek), started 3-3, then won its next six contests until losing to eventual Class AAAAA runner-up Walton in the state quarterfinals. Mill Creek started 3-0, then lost five of its final seven games to finish 5-5 and out of the playoffs. The neighboring programs begin their respective seasons against each other Friday at Mill Creek in…
