Flowery Branch, GA – Jones County High School Head Football Coach Justin Rogers has been named the Atlanta Falcons Coach of the Week presented by Ford. Coach Rogers is 8-1 this season including wins over Morgan County, Cross Creek, Greenbrier, Grovetown, Lakeside, Houston County, Evans and Academy of Richmond County.
