Maxwell projects three repeat champs

The Maxwell Ratings' mid-season projections of the playoff draws are out, and here are some highlights.

 

Or, to see for yourself, check out these projections - with odds for all 417 teams in the state - for AAAAAA-AAAA and AAA-A.

 

*Class AAAAA: Colquitt County will win its first state title since 1994, while North Gwinnett will be runner-up for the second consecutive season and third time in eight years. North Cobb will get to the semifinals. Lovejoy will play at Lowndes in the first round of the playoffs. Valdosta will play Tucker on the road in the first round. Lovejoy will lose to Grayson in the quarterfinals, and Camden County will lose to North Gwinnett in the same round.

 

*Class AAAAA: Coffee will lose in the quarterfinals on the road to Allatoona. Ware County will win its first state title, beating defending champ Creekside in the final.

 

*Class AAAA: Buford will beat Griffin in the quarterfinals, then Sandy Creek in the final, to claim the school's 40th consecutive victory and 10th state championship since 2001.

 

*Class AAA: Washington County will win its first state title since 1997, and Calhoun will be the runner-up for the fifth time in seven years. Westminster will make the semifinals for the first time since 1996, ironically in a season in which the Wildcats moved up in classification. West Hall will get through to the quarterfinals for the first time. Peach County will be done in the round of 16. Callaway, ranked No. 3 in preseason, will be done in the first round.

 

*Class AA: Greater Atlanta Christian will beat defending champion Lovett in the first all-private final in a class other than A since 1980. Private schools will be 9-1 vs. public schools in the playoffs. Region 5 will be swept by Region 6 in the first round.

 

*Class A public: Lincoln County will miss the playoffs for the first time since 1972. Marion County will beat Charlton County for the title in a rematch of the 2013 final.

 

*Class A private: Mount Paran Christian will reach the final, giving it a shot to become the first Cobb County-based team since 1967 to win a state title, but will lose to defending champ Aquinas.

 

POY Watch Presented By Rising Seniors Foundation

Urzua on record-setting passing pace

1It is perhaps early to talk about breaking single-season state records, especially one as revered as Hutson Mason's 4,560 yards passing for Lassiter in 2009. But North Gwinnett QB John Urzua is on pace to break it - if the Bulldogs play 15 games this season.

 

The odds are probably against that, but North Gwinnett did it last season. And the Maxwell Ratings projected Tuesday that North Gwinnett will make the Class AAAAAA final again and face Colquitt County for the title.

 

Urzua, a senior and first-year starter, has thrown for 1,619 yards in North Gwinnett's 4-1 start. That's 323.8 yards per game - a pace for 4,857 yards over a 15-game season. Over 14 games, that would come to 4,533 yards - 27 yards below the total of Mason, who played 13 games.

 

And while most teams suffer a statistical downgrade during the playoffs, North Gwinnett's schedule won't get much tougher than it has been. The Bulldogs have played four projected playoff teams and one projected region champion.

 

Urzua is one of three new members of GHSF Daily's Player of the Year Watch this week. He joins South Cobb QB Kylil Carter and Hughes DE D'Andre Walker.

1. QB/DB A.J. Gray, Washington County: Gray played less than two quarters in a 71-0 victory over Glenn Hills but rushed for 45 yards and a touchdown on six carries and was 3-of-4 passing for 110 yards and a touchdown. For the season, he has rushed for 591 yards and 10 touchdowns on 66 carries (8.95 ypc). On defense, he has returned two interceptions for touchdowns. Washington County (5-0) is ranked No. 1 in Class AAA. Gray is committed to Georgia Tech.

 

Up arrow2. RB Eric Swinney, Sandy Creek: Swinney rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries and caught a TD pass in a 24-17 victory over Auburn (Ala.). He became Sandy Creek's all-time leading rusher. For the season, Swinney has 722 yards rushing and eight touchdowns on 111 attempts (6.5 ypc). Sandy Creek (5-0) is ranked No. 2 in Class AAAA. Rated the consensus No. 10 running-back prospect in the nation, Swinney is committed to Ole Miss.

 

Up arrow3. RB/QB/DB Deshawn Waller, B.E.S.T. Academy: Waller rushed for 185 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries, was 3-of-7 passing for 41 yards and caught three passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in a 58-28 loss to No. 1-ranked Greater Atlanta Christian.

Up arrow8. DE D'Andre Walker, Hughes: Walker had three sacks and forced a fumble in a 24-9 victory over Douglas County. For the season, Walker has 12 sacks for 53 yards in losses and another 11 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Walker also has forced three fumbles. Hughes is 3-1 and allowing 13.0 points per game against a schedule that includes three Top 10 teams. Walker is the consensus No. 17 prospect in Georgia and No. 11 weakside defensive end nationally, according to 247Sports. Auburn, Tennessee and Georgia reportedly are his leaders.

 

Up arrow9. QB John Urzua, North Gwinnett: Urzua was 14-of-22 passing for 378 yards and four touchdowns in a 51-41 victory over Mill Creek. For the season, Urzua is 105-of-157 passing for a state-best 1,619 yards and 16 touchdowns against three interceptions.

On the mark

Duke Kinamon of McIntosh became only the eighth player in GHSA history to throw for seven touchdowns in a game last week in a 56-28 victory over Morrow, according to the Georgia High School Football Historians Association. Kinamon has committed to play baseball for Stanford as a shortstop but has football offers from Air Force and Harvard. He was a starter the past two seasons at slot receiver. "Toughest kid I've ever coached," McIntosh coach Lee Belknap told GHSF Daily.

Trivia

This is a big week for Region 1-AAAAAA and the Top 10 because of the matchups of No. 1 Colquitt County vs. No. 3 Lowndes and No. 2 Camden County vs. No. 5 Valdosta. All four schools have coaches that won state titles before being hired at their current schools. Name those four coaches and the schools where they won previous titles. (Answer Thursday)

 

Answer to Tuesday's question: Marteze Waller, the Fresno State running back who ranks 28th nationally in NCAA Division I rushing, was an all-state player for Putnam County in 2010 and 2011.

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.

 

Todd Wheeler, Coosa

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? "I would have to say that the most influential person in my coaching career is Lynn Hunnicutt [[Wheeler's high school coach at Peperell.] Lynn was one of those guys that brought out the best in you. He always challenged you to be on top of your game as a coach and dealing with players. He's one of the best at getting players and coaches to perform at their very best."

 

2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced?"Reggie Brown, who played at Carrollton back in the late 1990s. He was difficult to slow down as a wide receiver, much less to stop. Carrollton, and coach Ben Scott, would move him around to different positions, which made it next to impossible to get your best cover man on him."

 

3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach?

"This is a hard one. The Carrollton teams of the late '90s were tough. But I would have to say that the 1993 Greene-Taliaferro team coached by Charles Winslette was the best team that I have had the opportunity to coach against. They only had 28 players, and those kids played for each other. That was one of the most unselfish teams that I have seen. One rumor about this team is that the kids all knew who needed a back number and who needed a lineman number. Before the game, the coaches would place the jerseys in the locker room and they just pick up a jersey and did not care what the number was that they got. They just wanted to play the game."

 

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 think that the GHSA is a model for managing athletics. One rule that I would like to see tweaked would be the quarters that a student can play. Special-teams plays should not count as a quarter played. These are usually kids that ether play JV or are front-line backups, and this rule makes it tough when you are trying to give a kid game reps at the JV level. At times it could determine if a team can play in an upcoming JV game or have to cancel."
