Cherokee Bluff’s Max Eubanks is a two-sport athlete (football and baseball) who has become a top target in the Cherokee Bluff offense this season. The new transfer from Flowery Branch was a big defender last season, making several highlight-reel-worthy interceptions, but it was last week on offense where Eubanks showed those same dynamic hands.
It was against Dawson County where Eubanks lept up and high-pointed a pass over the middle of the field. The junior had single coverage but was able to explode into the autumnal sky and grab the football, dwarfing the defender in the process.
The catch was one of the best high-pointed receptions of the season, and a few days later the junior was named to the top 10 plays of the week. Another 24 hours after that and Eubanks finished with the #3 play of the week thanks to the great support from the Cherokee Bluff community.
Eubanks has changed schools and positions this fall but feels that his mindset has improved the most over the last year.
“I feel like I have improved overall a lot especially mentally the most over the past year,” Eubanks said.
Currently, Cherokee Bluff is ranked #7 in our 3A rankings, and the junior is focused on upkeeping their success so far.
“My goals for the rest of the year are to help my team keep winning and improving every week.”
On the recruiting front, Eubanks has visited both Georgia and Georgia State but also has a few more planned upcoming. The 2023 recruit has intriguing film on both offense and defense in his sophomore and junior year.
He has a lot of varsity experience under his belt after starting the last two seasons, so we asked what he enjoys most playing on Friday nights.
“My favorite part of playing on Fridays is just going out with my team and helping us get the win in any way I can,” Eubanks proclaimed.
Eubanks is a student of the game and also a focused participant in the classroom with a 4.1 GPA. He stands 6’1″ and 190 lbs. with a versatile skill-set and outstanding hand-eye coordination too. His recruitment will certainly grab colleges’ attention over the course of the 2023 recruiting cycle, so be sure to follow @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter to see the latest on the junior and the rest of the athletes across the state of Georgia.
