The Bulldogs need for quarterback Hayden Sphire to stay healthy. He's 42 of 75 passing for 565 yards and four touchdowns in three playoff games, or since his return from a leg injury that sidelined him for 2 1/2 games, according to ghsfdaily.com.

For McEachern, quarterback Ty Clemons also has had injury problems. He played briefly in the quarterfinals, but might be close to 100 percent Friday. He has rushed for 1,171 yards, according to ghsfdaily.com.

Norcross, the defending state champion, hosts Colquitt County on Friday in the other 6A semifinal.
