Week 6 Standouts

Here are the Week 6 standouts from our weekend research. We have a quick write-up on each of the 10 athletes that we have selected with their highlight film included if possible.

We also have a poll for our Player of the Week directly underneath that will end tomorrow night at 10 p.m. You can only vote once per hour! The winner will get a featured story on the website and a custom highlight video. 

David Eziomume
SR North Cobb
Running Back

Everyone is talking about David Eziomume these days. The senior from North Cobb seems to getting better each week, and the last game against Milton was a culmination of his success so far in 2023. The Clemson commit put down 325 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns in a huge 42-27 win over Milton. Eziomume made decisive scores in the 3rd quarter to put the game away and have his team back in the 7A top 10 rankings. Right now, Eziomume is making a case for player of the year in 7A.

Jalen Hall
SR Dooly Co.
Wide Receiver

After playing one of the toughest schedules of any Class A team, Dooly County ticked off their first win of the season against Turner County 41-21. Senior Jalen Hall was a standout with 125 yards on 5 receptions and 2 touchdowns on offense. Defensively, the senior also had 2 interceptions on the night and he took back one for a score too. Hall is part of a Dooly County senior group that is very talented and will be a tough team down the stretch here.

AJ Pigford
SR South Gwinnett
Defensive End

South Gwinnett went toe-to-toe with top-ranked Norcross but fell short 27-20. Even so, the Comets proved to be one of the best teams in 7A and senior AJ Pigford continues his tremendous senior campaign. The senior had 10 tackles, 1 sack, and 3 tackles for a loss. The senior racks of tackles from the backside where his big-time motor cleans up a lot of tackles. Pigford is one of the best edge defenders still available in this class.

Reece Fountain
SR Rome

Fountain has Rome playing great football with their offense humming. In last week’s 62-0 win over Allatoona, Fountain passed for 267 yards while completing 14 out of 17 passes and 5 touchdowns. The senior has been playing flawless football halfway through the season and we continue to believe he is one of the more underrated quarterbacks in this class.

Ja’Quan Bentley
SR Upson-Lee
Running Back

Upson-Lee’s Ja’Quan Bentley put up huge numbers last Friday against Mt. Zion-Jonesboro. The senior back rushed for 190 yards and 5 touchdowns in just the first half of their blowout win. Bentley is an explosive vertical running threat who can make a cut on a dime and gets upfield in a hurry. The senior has been dynamic in the early season with a recent offer from Western Kentucky this month. He is one of the top uncommitted backs in the state.

D’Marzavion Gates
SR Lithia Springs

The Lithia Springs senior went for 16 tackles and 1 interception in their 28-18 win over Maynard-Jackson. The linebacker gets downhill and shows excellent hustle out to the sideline. Gates has been one of the top tacklers in 5A over the last year. You have to love his energy and effort to get out to the ball carrier and make a clean tackle. Gates is a senior who plays with a ton of passion doing whatever it takes to help his team win important rivalry games like last week against Maynard-Jackson.

Jaiden Daniels
JR Commerce
Running Back

Commerce junior Jaiden Daniels keeps the good times rolling in their 38-21 win over 2A’s Banks County. Daniels totaled 163 rushing yards on 14 carries and 2 scores while also throwing a 31-yard touchdown pass. As of now, there is no film from the game, but we will be sure to update ASAP. Daniels is a talented running back for Commerce who has been among the most productive runners in his recruiting class since he first stepped on campus.

Ahmed Souare
JR Loganville
Wide Receiver

Loganville junior Ahmed Souare had an ‘incredible night’ as described by his coach in their wild win over Heritage-Conyers. The 6’3″ 190 lbs. two-sport athlete had 8 catches for 228 yards and 4 touchdowns. The junior receiver is an elite-looking athlete with an impressive running stride and a huge frame to continue to add weight. He is a no-doubt FBS caliber receiver who we expect to see his recruitment take off sooner rather than later.

Dion Dean
SR Heritage-Conyers
Wide Receiver

On the flip side, Heritage’s Dion Dean went off against Loganville. The senior had 13 catches for 250 yards and 4 touchdowns while returning a kick back for 98 yards too. Dean had 350 all-purpose yards in this wild 48-40 shootout. Dean’s incredible performance is among the best of any receiver has had in the state this year, and looks to be an underrated slot receiver in this class.

Derrick Bing
SR Savannah Country Day
Defensive End

Savannah Country Day played a smash-mouth game against Long County last Friday where they ultimately won 17-14. Senior defensive lineman Derrick Bing dominated the trenches with 20 total tackles on the game and 2 sacks. At 6’3″ and 257 lbs., the senior defensive lineman should continue to fill out his frame and we like the quickness to play across the line. Bing recently received an offer from Marist.

      Jaquan Bentley is the most underrated top tier RB in the state! Nobody is noticing the 5 touchdowns he got in THE 1st Half and sat out the 2nd half so his younger teammates could get clock. That wasn’t only amazing talent, that’s amazing character! Class act on and off the field. Upson Lee💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

  9. Team Dion all day. Keep going hard.

    First, we need to STOP speaking negatively about these young men. We should be just voting for our player and not speaking on another, whom we’ve never really seen play. They ALL had great games, and ALL are worthy of an honorary shoutout. I can say Mr. Dion Dean had a phenomenal game and hope he has more throughout the season. In my bias opinion, AJ Pigford is one of the best football players in GA. EVERY WEEK, he has an impact on the game, that’s unbelievable. If you notice, he has to make most of his plays on the other side because teams often run away from and/or double team him 90% of the game. Not to mention he also can play offense. He does all this in, arguably, the toughest region in the Southeast. With all that, still remains humble and a work horse, on and off the field. (4.2 GPA Honor Student). I’m sure each of these young men have some of the same attributes and we should recognize them, but we also need shoutout the teams they play on. None of these things are possible with help from his teammates. Great Job Gentlemen. GO SOUTH GWINNETT!!!!!!
