Ask Richmond Hill High School football coach Lyman Guy what concerns him about first-round playoff opponent Warner Robins and he flips the question around.

The Wildcats will get their chance to find out whether they’ve got what it takes to pass the exam Saturday night when they take on the Demons in Warner Robins.
The Wildcats (8-2, 5-2) are the No.-3 seed from Region 3-AAAAA after finishing in a three-way tie for second with Glynn Academy and Effingham County. A tiebreaker based on point differential put the Wildcats in third behind Glynn.
