One of Week 7’s top offensive performers in the state of Georgia was Wilcox County senior QB, Abe Stowe. The savvy signal-caller completed 15 of his 19 passes for 381 yards and 7 touchdowns in a victory over Treutlen.
The senior’s efficiency was insane last week, almost one in every two passes was a touchdown and he averaged 25.4 yards per completion. Without a doubt, Stowe is our ‘Big Stat Dude’ of Week 7 in the state of Georgia.
On the season, Stowe has 1204 passing yards and 16 touchdowns in just 4 games. This of course is an encore performance of sorts from last season where Stowe’s postseason accolades included Region Player of the Year and an All-State selection to go along with a semifinal finish in Class A Public. This season has been a little different, and the senior talked briefly about how.
“Senior season has been good, I got injured and missed 2 games which wasn’t great for the stat line,” Stowe jokingly stated.
Still injuries aside, Stowe is averaging just over 300 yards per game, giving him the 4th best average in the state of Georgia. That’s about a 100-yard increase from last season for Stowe, who credits the significant jump through the hard work over the last offseason.
“This offseason was a grind. I spent a lot of time on my technique, releasing the ball quicker and more efficiently to go along with my speed and strength training.”
On the recruiting front, Stowe is hearing from a mix of schools at multiple levels of college football.
“Recruitment has been good, talked to many Division II coaches and some FCS. I plan on taking a couple of gameday visits to different schools this fall,” Stowe said.
In our opinion, more D1 programs need to take an interest in Stowe. He is a leader, and as we said earlier he helped his team to the Class A Public semifinals. The senior has improved at almost every facet of his game in the last year, and his production averages have taken a significant leap.
Stowe is poised to repeat last year’s accomplishments and then some.
“The plan for the rest of the season is the same as always; win region first, then make a run deep into the playoffs and come out on top,” he said.
Stowe certainly has the experience to do just that. The 4-year starter has been poised for the moment and his continued progress as a high-level decision-maker especially while under pressure. College coaches need to wake up and get after the 6’1″ quarterback, who also sports a 4.0 GPA. We believe that will be the case in due time, so be sure to follow @RecruitGeorgia to see the latest stats, highlight,s and recruiting news on the senior QB plus more athletes throughout the state of Georgia.
