High School Football: South Georgia’s top performers from Week Two
ALBANY, GA – Week Two of high school football in south Georgia wrapped up after more lightning delays and late kickoffs. That did not stop teams from showcasing their talented players for yet another week, however.
The second week of football saw quarterbacks throw all over opposing defenses, running backs carry their team to victory, receivers making play after play, and defensive players flying all over the field.
Here are four south Georgia players gracing this week’s list of Week Two’s top performers:
Kam Davis (Dougherty High School) – Quarterback
Davis led the Trojans to another victory as he threw for 265 yards and four touchdowns on 11 completions against Randolph-Clay.
He’ll get the chance to have an even better performance this week as the Trojans (2-0) will be on the road to take on Stockbridge (1-1).
Aiden Griffin (Westover High School) – Running back
The Patriots suffered a 26-21 loss to Sumter County last week, but that did not stop Aiden Griffin from having himself a noteworthy performance.
Griffin finished the night with 110 rushing yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in the loss, improving his totals to 210 rushing yards in two games this season.
He and the Patriots (0-2) look to get their first win of the season as Spencer (1-1) will travel from Columbus to Albany this week.
Malik Dixon (Dougherty High School) – Receiver
Davis’ 265 yard passing game needed to go to someone, and receiver Malik Dixon accounted for 100 of those yards.
Dixon caught four passes in the win and looks to add to his season totals as the Trojans head to Stockbridge on Friday.
Hunter Barber (Worth County) – Defense
Barber was all over Mitchell County’s offense in the 16-14 win last Friday, finishing with nine tackles and a pass breakup.
Barber and the Rams look to go 3-0 as the Rams host Upson-Lee (0-2) this Friday.
