POY Watch Presented By Rising Seniors Foundation

Pickens' Brooks 'the most overlooked'

1The seven touchdowns were a career high, so maybe that turned heads, but Shannon Brooks has gotten so good that a 300-yard rushing game is no longer surprising.

 

The Pickens senior running back ran for 301 last week against Southeast Whitfield. He ran for 311 in the opener against White County.

 

What is surprising is that Brooks - Georgia's leading rusher and a longtime commitment to Minnesota - is not considered one of the top 100 senior prospects in the state. According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, he's No. 140.

 

"I think he is the most overlooked player around," Pickens coach Chris Parker said. "I guess the reason is that he is in the mountains and not getting as much exposure as a sophomore and junior. We tried to do the best we can about spreading the word about him, but only a few bigger schools were interested. Minnesota was on him from the beginning and that is why he feels so loyal to them."

 

Pickens plays in Region 7-AAAA. Granted, the Maxwell Ratings rank the region seventh out of eight in Class AAAA. But AAAA is not for little schools. The region is the 22nd-strongest out of 48 regions statewide, according to Maxwell.

 

Further, it's similar to the region that former Cedartown star Nick Chubb terrorized for three years before signing with Georgia as a five-star recruit.

 

"We played against Nick Chubb the last two years, and I don't know if Shannon is too far behind him," Parker said. "I think that is a fair comparison. People don't seem to want to give our region much credit, and that may have something to do with it. I am surprised that more people haven't been on him. Maybe Nick and Shannon doing so well will start giving a better reputation to our area in football. He is the best player I have ever coached."

 

Brooks moves up in GHSF Daily's Player of the Year Watch to No. 2 this week after what might've been his best-ever game. Class A star Lorenzo Smothers of Marion County is new to the list this week.

 

1. QB/DB A.J. Gray, Washington County: Gray's team did not play last week. For the season, Gray has rushed for 785 yards and 14 touchdowns on 83 carries (9.4 ypc) and is 40-of-67 passing for 893 yards and nine touchdowns.

Trivia

The history of the Warner Robins-Northside rivalry, to be played again Friday at McConnell-Talbert Stadium, doesn't have to be explained to the teams' head coaches. Bryan Way is an alumnus of Warner Robins (class of 1980), and Kevin Kinsler is an alumnus of Northside (class of 1979). They faced each other in the rivalry as players in the late 1970s. Who is the last Georgia head coach to win a state title as the head coach of his alma mater? (Answer Thursday)

 

Answer to Tuesday's question: Tucker was the school that had its 58-week streak of appearing in the Top 10 ended this year after losing in the Corky Kell Classic. Other 50-game streaks ending this season have been North Gwinnett (87) and Camden County (50).

Four QuestionsPresented By Georgia
Army National Guard  
1

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

 

Chad Phillips,

Starr's Mill

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? "Mike Earwood [formerly of Starr's Mill, now head coach at Our Lady of Mercy]. His attention to detail and his relentless work ethic made him one of the top coaches around."

 

2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced? "Eric Berry [of Creekside] was a game-changer at whatever position he was playing."

 

3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach? "The 2001 Northside team with Chansi Stuckey and company were pretty tough. The 2013 Creekside team was solid, too."

 

4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change? "The GHSA needs to adopt the NCAA rules. Spectators, officials and even coaches are constantly getting the rules confused. It would make for a better product if we all had the same rules. That way the players, coaches, officials and fans can watch games on Saturdays and expect the same calls during our games."

 

Georgia Army National Guard is an official military partner of the GHSA. The National Guard is presenting sponsor of the Traditional Wrestling and Riflery State Championships.
