Once again, all of Lamb’s stats came from basically one quarter of play. It was 35-0 at the end of the first quarter and Calhoun began mass substitutions. Not saying Lamb is better than Printz, but Lamb has not gotten a lot of playing time lately due to blowouts. He is a very good quarterback.

This is still baffling. The two D-linemen you have on this list aren’t even the best at their position stastically of all the playoff bound teams yet because the are the scout/rivals/24-7/ whoever, #1 at their position so they are on this list.

Printz is having an amazing year. Good luck in the play offs!

Just a question

No disrespect to Lamb, but, if the teams you play are blow outs and he is not needed is it your team is too good and could win with anyone at QB or is it he is the only reason Calhoun is having success? I have always known Calhoun to beat up on very weak 2A schools. Kids come from all over to play for the Yellow Jackets. Again, just a question. I know he is very good if he is listed above.

Question, good question — I don’t think you are going to see much fall off the next few years at Calhoun as the pipeline is very strong indeed. Having a QB as good as Lamb puts him on the bench quick, without him its usally halftime or 3rd quarter before the game is iced. The program at Calhoun, top to bottom is as good as any in the state. I don’t think these AA schools are that weak as much as Calhoun’s programs are so much better and it shows at the state level.

Since the Regular season is over can you publish a list of the states top 10 performers based solely on their stats for the regular season by position.

Thanks, makes good sense. I was talking to a friend and they said calhoun puts top players in college every year. Great program lead by a very good coach from a Football family.

Look they put players in college but wht do you think is going to happen to them when they meet a team in the playoffs where he has to play all 4 quarters. And say what you want but reason I say this that this kid Lamb is great but if he is only playing limited downs when he faces a tough defense that will sack and knock him down 4 quarters his body hasn’t experience these type of things really his entire time at Calhoun until they played Buford. And you see 2 of the last games they played went to overtime with Buford. And JustaQuestion great comment reguarding they get players not only from their town but else where also. Calhoun is a great program. But I’ll never root for them cause I bleed Red, White, And Blue…… And we will always be the hardest ighting team in AA……………

Nkemdiche is a great prospect but he’s gone from 18 sacks in 2010, 18 sacks in 2011 to 4 sacks thus far in 2012. I watched him in 2011 and 2012 and honestly he was a better, more explosive, more dominant player in 2011. Teams are essentially blocking him the same as they did last year but he isn’t as quick, explosive this year at 285 pounds as he was last year at 260-265. People try to compare him to Jadeveon Clowney but Clowney’s stats improved each year in high school and he had 29.5 sacks as a senior. Just something to watch…..as it’s odd to see such a regression in performance when a player should be improving from 11th-12th grade.

Taylor Lamb had no problems going 4 quarters with Ridgeland and Carrollton. Brooks saw him last year and he took care of the red, white & blue to the tune of 36-0 in the 3rd quarter. Jefferson in the 1st round last year hit harder.

Lol your funny you obviously from Jefferson and you on Calhoun D**k. You hpoing they put the best team in AA out lol. One thing about it and 2 things for sure we had key injurys in last year game with a 2 year played under center better know what we working with in Brooks. It’s clear that we arent the same team as last year in no way shape or form. So we are ready for whoever whenever. So put your money where your mouth is…….. We have more than Parrish…………………… Ya’ll had a decent season in Jeferson last year and just happy ya’ll finish at the top of the region this year.

And oh don’t act like you guys never brought other players in. Calhoun does have a great program that they have in place to get the kids ready I’m up there a lot to deliver carpet. And you said ya’ll had a player to go D-1 who Darick Rogers pls he was talented but where was his discipline. He screwed that scholarship up bad. And for Buford I can careless about them honestly I rooted for you guys to beat them everytime because they are cheaters and this wasn’t the only year they should have forfeited wins. They took the 2010 title from you guys but my opinion……………..
