Lately?

When has that not been the case? Hell you could probably make the case just on the backs of Valdosta, Lowndes County and Carver Columbus.

Having said that, there are some very good metro Atlanta programs and some very good North Georgia programs, but I'm not aware of a time that south Georgia wasn't the dominant region.

When I was in HS in the early 00s and late 90s Parkview high school was winning 5A every year. Them or brookwood. Both programs are in metro Atl

I was going to mention them. But outside of those two programs at their peak, ATL hasn't been very dominant compared to south ga. My senior year (c/o 03) my HS was 11-0 heading into the parkview game. Round 2 of the playoffs and we crossed the 50 yard line once. That was a painful one to watch.

The big difference I see between North Georgia/Atlanta and South Georgia is that in North Georgia the power schools has followed housing patterns whereas in South Georgia it seems like the same schools have been good forever. In Metro Atlanta there seems to be a shift every 5 to 7 years. In the 80's it was Central Dekalb and then spread to North Dekalb and East Dekalb and then into Gwinnett in the 90's and has slowly since the 2000's pushed up I-85 and I-75. Its hard to maintain a powerhouse program for long in Atlanta because the housing patterns are in constant flux and if you have the kids in the neighborhood today you likely will not have the kids you need in 6 or 7 years.
