It looked as if Grayson (Loganville, Ga.)
was destined for a showdown with Colquitt County (Moultrie, Ga.)
, the state's top-ranked team, in the GHSA Class 6A finals. It led Roswell (Roswell, Ga.),
26-23, with less than a minute to play.
Then A.J. Smith
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound senior somehow got behind the Grayson defense and hauled in a desperation fling from quarterback Quintarius Neely
for a 50-yard touchdown with 11 seconds left.
The amazing catch lifted Roswell to a stunning 30-26 victory.
Now it will be Roswell, not Grayson, facing Colquitt County in a battle of unbeaten teams for the Class 6A title.
