The home of Griffin quarterback Jaquez Parks was burglarized on Saturday while Parks was leading his school to its first state championship in 35 years, according to WSB-TV.
Griffin defeated Carrollton 56-35 for the Class AAAA title in the Georgia Dome. Parks set a state-finals record with 544 yards from scrimmage – 338 passing and 216 rushing.
But when his family returned to their Griffin home, they found it ransacked, the TV station reported. Police said burglars used an ax to break in.
“I think I was targeted because they knew that my whole family supports me. They knew whole family was going to be there,” Parks told WSB.
