Kawon Bryant of North Oconee has scored 21 touchdowns in four games. What is the Georgia record for touchdowns in a season? (Answer Tuesday)
Answer to Friday’s question: Glascock County holds the Georgia record for the longest losing streak. Officially it is 62 games, but would have been 82 if a 55-0 loss to Washington-Wilkes in 1997 had not been overturned by forfeit.
