9Interest in LaFlamme might heat up

Tyler LaFlamme doesn't have a scholarship offer. In fact, no college football coach has ever called or e-mailed the senior from South Forsyth.

 

Maybe that will change after LaFlamme (pronounced "la flame") rushed for 435 yards in South Forsyth's 42-34 victory over Chattahoochee on Friday. That's the fourth-highest single-game rushing total in state history, according to the Georgia High School Football Historians Association. The record is 476 yards by Miller County's Don Calloway in 1999. (See Daily List.)


 

"I have a feeling recruiting will pick up," South Forsyth assistant coach Trevor Williams said. "Good mix of size and speed."

 

Williams coaches the secondary, where LaFlamme (5 feet 10 inches and 193 pounds) has started since he was a freshman. It was only last season that he moved to running back, playing the position for the first time since the sixth grade, but was behind senior Isaiah Williams, who signed with Army.

 

South Forsyth is 4-1 overall, 4-0 in Region 6-AAAAAA, and plays Northview (5-0, 4-0) in its next game on Oct. 10. LaFlamme has 985 yards rushing on the season.

 

Here are some of the best individual efforts from last week.

Trivia

Georgia native Marteze Waller of Fresno State rushed for a college career-high 163 yards in a 35-24 victory over New Mexico on Saturday. Waller has rushed for 457 yards on the season, which ranks 28th nationally. For which high school did Waller play and make first-team all-state in 2010 and 2011? (Answer Wednesday)

 

Answer to Monday's question: Habersham Central's quarterback in 2011 - when the Raiders averaged 38.4 points and allowed 33.6 in the regular season - was Kevin Ellison, now the starting quarterback for Georgia Southern. Ellison rushed for 151 yards in Georgia Southern's most recent game, a 35-14 victory over Appalachian State.

 

Four QuestionsPresented By FieldTurf  

1

GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.

 

Jared Zito, Ola

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? "George Clayton. He is the head coach at Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs, Fla., where I played and coached. He was our offensive line coach when I played, and he hired me out of college for my first teaching and coaching position. He taught me a lot about the game and really emphasized keeping it simple so the players can play fast and physical. He was very good at identifying our opponents' strengths and weaknesses. I learned a lot from him. We still keep in touch and talk a few times a year."

 

2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced?"Hutson Mason. He was the quarterback at Lassiter when we played them in the first round of the playoffs in 2009 when I was the head coach at North Forsyth. We felt like kings of the county when we were up 14-0, then Hutson took over. I have never seen a quarterback with such accuracy and poise. I think they beat us 62-37."

 

3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach?"Grayson in 2011. They were big, physical, talented and very well-coached in every aspect of the game. They went on to win the state championship."

 

4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change? "I will leave that up to people smarter than me. It is always easy to be critical of someone looking from the outside in. I am sure they are aware of a few items that need to be addressed and will continue to do what they think is best for all."

 

FieldTurf is the official artificial turf of the GHSA. It is the top choice for elite college programs and high schools across North America. Football is a rough sport, and FieldTurf has made tremendous strides in improving the safety of its surfaces without compromising quality. Contact Josh Keown, regional sales manager atjkeown@fieldturf.com or 404-556-8265.
