Thomas County Central High School’s Ray Drew threw 201-2 in the discus at the region meet on Tuesday.
Drew, the 5-star football recruit who signed with Georgia, is three feet away from the state record.
Ironically, the record is held by another defensive lineman who signed a football scholarship with Georgia — Winder-Barrow High School’s Hiawatha Berry threw 204-2 in 1985.
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Drew plans to play two sports in college, football and track.
