Four Georgia, two Tech commitments on AAAAAA preseason all-state team

The final Georgia High School Football Daily/Atlanta Journal-Constitution preseason all-state team, for Class AAAAAA, has 17 players who have made their college choices, more than any other class.

Going to Georgia are Brandon Kublanow, Naim Mustafaa, Tray Matthews and J.J. Green.

Auburn has claims on Jarrad Davis, Trey Johnson and Carl Lawson.

Travis Custis and Shamire DeVine have picked Georgia Tech.

Clemson has Grayson stars Robert Nkemdiche and Wayne Gallman.

The rest are Octavius Jackson to Florida, Tiquan Lang to South Alabama, Dominique Threatt to South Florida, Eddie Printz to UCLA and Carlos Burse to Vanderbilt.

But the team isn’t about college prospects. Returning all-state players Alex Stoehr of North Gwinnett, Nathaniel Norwood of Lovejoy and Kasey Gaines of Grayson might not have as many offers, but they have a history of production that can’t be ignored.

It’s interesting to note that most of these kids are from metro Atlanta and not from the schools in south Georgia, which normally dominate the awards polls. Could it have something to do with the schools in south GA not being big enough?

Newton high has the best Defensive Line in the state. Kingsley Ejiki and Trevon Richardson should be on this list. I promise the will be there at the end of the year

How in the world you post all-state team at the end of the 2011 season then come back with a 2012 pre-season all-star team and leave those same guy’s off. That’s telling me it’s only Hype and the reporters writing these articles are simply looking for the Big name and not true production and value. and Guy’s that have committed.

The more i read these rankings and so called evaluations the more i see them as FAKE, FALSE, and BOGUS. Please note not calling any of these guy’s Hyped just making the obvious observation. These kids work hard and with a stroke of a pen you can take that away.

I’ll simply waiting to see how they all produce during the season, and that will tell me what I need to know about these all-state selections and analysis.

lowndes 52-0 over thomasville in tonights scrimmage…….over 500 yd of offense…….with the varsity and jv each playing a half……..

colquitt was losing to norcross 27-24 at one point………….cant wait to here all their excuses of they lost……..i hope they won since they are in our region……..but several packer fans were already letting all of us know there were going to be 5 to 7 starters that wd not play

You should know Colquitt isn’t too concerned with a scrimmage or even region games. Their coach does a good job of having them at their peak when the playoffs come around. I don’t think he cares what seed they are they will be as tough as anyone at the end.

grayram…………….here is a quote from a diehard colquitt fan after the scrimmage with norcross……..this isnt me saying this …this is a fan that keeps up with the team as much as anyone…..he goes by blackngold24 …below is what he said

“Got to be honest here. I was disappointed with the Packers! All the BS Probst through out about this team, and I saw what I saw tonight. I know we had guys out due to injury, but when you run out 110 players, that is no excuse. We were bigger last year, and more athelitic. Probst should be selling used cars, cause he sure sold me on this team, and I am sorely disappointed. I will say that back Kamara is awesome………….hope the Dawgs get him.

Offense looked okay, but we only threw the ball downfield once……..the back Lewis looked great. Defense better improve………….rankedn 18 in the nation? Give me a break

colquitt county has a good qb…..one good offensive linemen ….one good linebacker……..and hill (ole miss committ) at wr …………..and thats about it……….that is why all the hype was built up about this team………………and i knew not to buy into it………this team is nowhere near as loaded as last year……lost way to many studs bryce giddens(arkansas state) ty smith (georgia) Shermaine washington lb from last year now at VSU and so is the phenom kicker oscar luna…….they lost a load………

Should be all-state 75, ok it’s just opinions, these kids are very good and those not no the list are good. Bet most writers haven’t seen all these kids. At the end of the year 150 kids will get offers.

Come on people…don’t read too much into the scrimmage games. Most teams only run about 25% of their plays to avoid showing too much before the real season. They also play a lot of their 2nd and 3rd tier players to avoid injuries to key players and to see what those players can contribute. The real season starts next week for most teams. That will be the time to make truly informed judgements.

@CT#44. I did not go to the game but it sounds like it was exciting. Norcross won with a score in the last two seconds. Sounds like their running back ran all over us. There is more info on moultrieobserver.com if you are interested.

Everyone on here knows BKsmith14 is full of it.

yea……….you are right…….full of great football knowledge…….The rb for norcross ran over around and through the colquitt defense to the tune of 217 yards on 11 carries……….norcross is a better team than thomasville………i understand that…….but they are by no means a powerhouse in 6aaaaaa……….the bottom line is that colquitt just does ot have the skill nor size they had last year on both sides of the ball…….he would not have had 217 yards rushing against colquitt of last year…….i dont want to hear any of your whining excuses……..

there are pros and cons to playing good opponnents and lesser opponents in a scrimmage….and scheduling these games is not as easy at it sounds………..Lowndes has always scrimmaged thomas county central or thomasville , even when we were winning titles…….

I had 3 friends that live in colquitt and are diehard colquitt fans………they said that the defense is a BIG concern for colquitt………not worried about the ability to score….

Colquitt will be fine. Blackngold sounds dumb. We gave up some big plays, but we were missing 7 starters. We may have 110 guys, but they are not starters for a reason. And it was a scrimmage. We were alternating players and QBs every other series. Segraves threw the ball only 9 times. We also played only three quarters. There’s still not anybody in the state we are scared of, and def not in the region.

LOL……….all you packer fans can go waller in the mud with your hogs ……yall have 0 state titles and it wont change after this year……….we win with the kids we have in our local school system…….we dont bring in guys from bama so we can compete……….rance gillespie is a great coach and has a lot of class..unlike the “salesman” of a coach you guys have in coach propts or howver you spell it…………and no this year will not be the beginning of then end for lowndes………we will be solid this year………and our freshman and sophmore class is the best lowndes has had in a while……..you all just are pissed bc you lost a scrimmage to Norcross after your joke of a coach made yall out tyo be the all madden team of high school football………..I speak it how it is…….like it or not…….i have loads of lowndes fans and friends who support me,,,,,,,and for the ones who dont …o well get over it…..

lowndes jv squad would not have gave up 217 yards rushing to norcross rb…….

how does that humble pie taste after the loss the other night?

One good year? Ok buddy. Keep being the joke of this board. And again, it’s ok for Lowndes to bring in a player but not everybody else? Valdosta has Wilkes, y’all have the old Valdosta QB, Camden has Vonashek, but Rush is the only cheater. Keep making me laugh

Colquitt Fan,

Alex stephenson from Valdosta who will be #14 at lowndes ………his dad brought him or transferred him to lowndes…we did not go recruit him away from valdosta. He is a senior……….and wilkes is the guy at valdosta and his dad knew that and he wanted his son to move to lowndes bc he did not like the way he got done at valdosta last year…kid was 4-0 ..got hurt and wilkes came in ….lost his first game to mlk then caught fire rest of year and when alex recovered he never got his job back………..we didnt recruit him………his dad transferred him to lowndes and to be honest with you i feel that he may not be the starter this year..not sure…….at least he lives 10 min across town and out of STATE and had not already played 1 yr of senior ball in the state of bama,…..get your guns loaded if you want to battle me on this board bc i have my facts in order

Your head coach was a cheat at hoover and he isnt no diff now……….and my bad on the quote earlier…yall have had good years the last 2 years………2010 yall made it to the dome….granted yall had an easy road to get there but you made it and we didnt………thats what counts…..even though we beat yall ………….then last year yall had a good year……..yall had the team to win it all………but yall were up and down at weird times……..

Two years? Keep tryin. Good facts you bring. Just admit, you’re obsessed with Rush bc you wish you had him. Lowndes had a good run but you’re just average again. I love in the other article how you said you have 2 4.3 RBs, nobody believes that nonsense. Chris Johnson is the fastest RB in the NFL and runs a 4.3, but yet Lowndes has two of them. ROTFL

Colquitt fan …the only thing that is average is your knowledge of football….colquitt is 40-11 over the last 4 years and colquitts record in the same 4 yr span is 35-13……….with that said…….what makes you think i want cheater prospt as my coach…..Lowndes has won 3 state titles with coach randy mac at the helm and we make the playoffs every year and have won like 8 region titles with him being our coach………get off the reefer and when you come back down to earth then talk……..yall havent won a region title in what over 10 years…15? let alone a state title…….Lowndes just average………lol……we may have took a step back from being the power we were in 2004-2009 but you can bet your arse that it wont be long before the title is raised again at lowndes high school…may not be this year but sooner than you think….thats for sure

Lowndes is 40-11 over last 4 years with coach mac at the helm…while colquitt is 35-18 over the last 4 years with rush “cheatin” propst at the helm………yea i wont him as the coach for lowndes……….what coach mac does with the kids we have in the school system at lowndes is far more meaningful and impressive to me than having to go and bring in boys from alabama who have already played a full year of football while being in the 12th grade

If I’m smokin reefer then you’re smoking crack, you wanna compare playoff victories? Enjoy your region titles while we keep making deep deep playoff runs. No one cares who you talked to, bc nobody on this board believes you have that kind of speed. Don’t help anyways with that middle school offense y’all run. Crazy how people make you look foolish and you keep coming back for more, even your own fan base hates you bc you’re so full of it

you are so wrong colquitt fan……………i tell you what……….put your money where your mouth is………..how much you want to lose………??? both lang and burgman have run the 40 in under 4.4. i am 26 years old……….my father ran the 40 in high school at 4.3 , he played football……..at glenwood high ….where tim hudson for the braves went …….its not an unreachable feat

both consistently run it at under 4.5……..and both have been timed under 4.4……..

August 20th, 2012

hill at colquitt county has run the 40 at 4.4 …….do you see my questioning that?? i have seen his speed…i know……….lang and burgman are both just as fast and maybe a lil faster….

go to the lowndes football forum and read what everyone has been saying about lowndes………SPEED!!!

Norcross has a good offense and should have a good season. It was great for them to go down and perform the way they did. However you can bet Colquitt will look like a different team at hte end of the season. Look at the last two seasons they didn’t win the region but they were easily the best team from their region. Their goal is the state tournament not the region or preseason games. Probst is a master sandbagger.

So it’s went from 4.3 to 4.4 and now under 4.5? Sounds like back tracking to me. I don’t need to bet. Ask anybody in this thread I they’d choose Lowndes over Colquitt right now. I’ll wait

colquitt fan………i said they have both been timed under 4.4 and consistently run it under 4.5..the time they ran it under 4.4 was like 4.37 or something…….a coach on the staff that i fish with told me this……

and yall did lose a lot from last year…….i am sorry i know more aout your own team than you do…….

yall lost ty smith to ga
bryce giddens to arkansas state
oscar line to vsu
shermaine washington to vsu
willie woodyard….well last i heard he was arrested

yall lost 5 or 6 other kids also but the above names were the biggest losses…….

yall had the 3 d 1 committs you mentioned above last year…….hill , ward , and octavious jackson…

so you guys return someting everyone has already seen/ played against minus the studs i mentioned yall lost…….

colquitt will not be as good as they were last year……..remember i said that
