Hall played great in last Friday’s region championship game against North Forsyth. The Red Elephants pulled away 41-14 and the senior had 308 yards and 3 touchdowns on 21 carries. Hall has been a consistent member of the top performers of the week this season. The QB-turned-RB has shown consistently throughout this season that he is among the top running backs in the state of Georgia. Hall committed to Furman last spring.
Dupree navigated Southwest to a wild double OT win against ACE Charter last Friday where he put up 415 passing yards and 7 touchdowns. Dupree is a standout basketball player as well and already holds offers from Georgia Southern, Mercer, and NC A&T. Unfortunately, there is no film uploaded from this fall, but Dupree showed a lot of promise as a freshman and built a great connection with 2023 WR Carmelo Mays who had just over 250 yards and 4 touchdowns in last week’s win. The sophomore holds a 3.9 GPA and is a prospect to watch closely.
SR Frederica Acd.
Triplett dropped 404 yards and 7 touchdowns in their win last week against Pinewood Christian and the senior cruises by the 2k yard rushing mark in the process. The GIAA star leads the state in rushing with 2199 yards. He is now officially over 8100 career total yards and has 112 career touchdowns. Triplett is a 5’11” 210 lbs. running back who is an excellent student to boot with a 4.2 GPA and a 27 ACT score. He shows good explosiveness coming out of his cuts and natural forward lean when running. Triplett hits the hole hard, and his good acceleration into the 2nd level of the defense gashes defenses consistently. He is a senior prospect to watch closely as his film will certainly make the rounds of various D1 programs.
SR Thomas Co. Central
Trey Brenton was clutch in last Friday’s win over Lee County. His 157 yards rushing on 18 carries kept the chains moving and the senior had an explosive 40-yard rush up the middle for a score. TCC beat Lee Co. 31-24 and clinched the Region Championship on top of the consensus #2 spot in 6A. Maybe Brenton’s numbers are not eye-popping like other offensive performances on this list, but the impact of his production had the most weight. The 5’11” 200 lbs. senior is playing some great football and someone the coaching staff is slamming their fist on the table for. Colleges need to check him out.
JR Richmond Hill
McDonald once again shows why he is one of the best two-way playmakers in his area in a big 37-14 win against Lowndes. The junior had 2 interceptions, a PBU, and 5 tackles on defense while collecting two receptions for 22 yards and one score on offense. McDonald is an impressive CB prospect for Richmond Hill who is ultra-focused on the fundamentals and has sharply improved each season. His excellent game put Richmond Hill as the #4 team in Region 1 and great odds to make the playoffs. McDonald just recently earned his first FBS offer from Georgia Southern on October 26th.
Chamblee suffered a tough 36-34 OT loss last week, but it was not from the lack of production from their senior Tristian Sizemore. The 2024 prospect played a whopping 155 plays and had 17 offensive touches for 178 yards and 3 touchdowns. Two of the scores were in the clutch during overtime. On defense, Sizemore had 15 tackles, one interception, and a forced fumble too. The 5’10” 180 senior broke the school record with 13 receptions and also made a few tough runs at the goal line.
SR Appling Co.
Williams has been one of the top runners in 2A showing off his incredible blend of size, speed, and power. Last week against Tattnall Co. was no different, and Williams totaled 215 yards and 3 touchdowns. Williams has proven to be among the best running backs still available in the class of ’24. He has good acceleration into his top gear and is a tough runner between the tackles. The 5’11” 225 lbs. running is aptly nicknamed ‘The Truck.’
The junior played his best game of the season against their toughest opponent in GAC. Avery had about 130 all-purpose yards with an additional 108 yards while returning two interceptions. He totaled 3 touchdowns on the night with a rushing score and receiving on top of a defensive pick-six. Avery also had 6 tackles, plus he made a few intangible plays like recovering a fumble and blocking a PAT. The junior has really solidified himself as one of the top players in the class of 2025 in the state. He has excellent ball skills and great speed.
SR Providence Christian
Providence Christian clinched their first playoff bid in school history with the 55-27 win over East Jackson last Friday. The budding program put up some serious offensive numbers with quarterback Benjamin Klassen throwing absolutely dimes for 410 yards and 6 touchdowns on top of 5 rushes for an additional 63 yards on the ground. Klassen’s offensive output was among the best of any player in the state last week. The 6’1″ 195 lbs. QB made some great plays while enduring some intense pressure from the defense. You must like his calm demeanor and quick decision-making when executing the offense.
Tre Winters broke out with a huge game catching 5 passes for 220 yards and 3 touchdowns in a 28-21 win against Bremen. The Tigers clinched the Region Championship in the process. The 6’4″ junior wide receiver had touchdown catches of 97 and 86 yards in the 3rd quarter. The long-framed receiver was also a standout on defense with a few tackles and punted a few nice balls too. Winters is also a standout on the basketball court and you can see his long athletic profile really explodes on the football field too. He is a super intriguing prospect to watch over the next offseason considering his size and explosiveness.
