18. Colquitt County (Moultrie, Ga.) - Full preview
Colquitt County’s defense should be stronger than last year, but the team’s biggest strength is its game-changing quarterback, Cole Segraves
. The 6-5 signal-caller is a dual-threat quarterback in a non-traditional sense: he can throw accurately with both arms. Running back John Boatright
will be another major offensive threat, along with receiver Bobby Hill
, who led the team in touchdown grabs. A potent offense and overall strong defense gives Colquitt County great balance.Question marks:
Losing two solid linemen as well as tight end Ty Smith (Georgia) gives reason for some pause when it comes to the offense. The defense returns five starters and could be even better than last year, but only if the young talent it boasts actually pans out. Keep an eye on freshman Kiel Pollard
, a Pop Warner phenom who could make a splash on the varsity team as a freshman.Outlook
: Rush Propst and staff believe this could be Colquitt County’s year. The expectation is pretty clear: State title or bust. The Packers nearly made it to the title game last year, but fell to Grayson in the semifinals, as two late pass interference penalties doomed Colquitt County. In addition to Grayson, Colquitt County will have to get past Camden County, which should be much improved. The road will be difficult, but Colquitt County has a shot at a very special season.
