Preseason all-state: Brooks County’s Parrish leads AA team

Malkom Parrish, the Brooks County quarterback who passed for more than 3,000 yards and rushed for nearly 1,000 in 2012, leads GHSF Daily’s preseason all-state team for Class AA.

Parrish, projected as a cornerback in college, has committed to Georgia. He’s joined on the team by another Georgia-committed player, Heard County OL Jake Edwards.

Georgia Tech also has two committed players on the AA preseason all-state team. They are Lamar County teammates Lawrence Austin (RB) and Qua Searcy (DB). A third, Lance Austin, might’ve made the team were his primary high school position not quarterback.

Other AA preseason all-state players who have made their college decisions are Lovett DB/RB Grant Haley (Vanderbilt) and Westminster DL Sam Schmal (Boston College), both from Region 6.

Defending champion Jefferson is represented by TE Donnie Hatfield and OL Jordan Tyler. Runner-up Calhoun placed two players in OL Katrova Drew and LB Will Conley.
