    Here, you’ll have the chance to create your own traditions and make your mark covering the county’s sports life as you see fit. The county boasts three Region 8 AAAA high schools and active youth sports organizations and recreation department. Rockdale/Conyers sports consists of Heritage, Rockdale and Salem High Schools, as well as noted youth organizations (RYSA), Legion teams and organized community activity centers. The prep sports in the area are second to none, including perpetual state playoff schools in football, basketball, baseball and volleyball and a litany of All-Region 8 individual performers.
