Packers win first four in Hoover 7-on-7

MOULTRIE —  With Bobby Hill making big plays on both sides of the line of scrimmage, Colquitt County won all four of its pool play games on Thursday in the first day of the National Select 7-on-7 Championships in Hoover, Ala.

The Packers opened with a 32-13 victory over Marietta’s Lassiter High, then made it two in a row, defeating Liberty High of Youngstown, Ohio, 27-18

Colquitt then scored with 1 second remaining to go up 35-33 over Hoover’s Spain Park High.

Johnny Ward saved the victory when he broke up a pass in the end zone on the last play of the game.

Colquitt defeated Whitehaven High of Memphis, Tenn., 21-11, in Thursday’s finale.

The Packers will continue pool play at 9:30 CT this morning when they meet Daphne High of Mobile, Ala.

The also will meet West Monroe, La., at 10:30 a.m. CT and Christian Brothers of St. Louis, Mo., at 11:30 a.m. CT.

The games against West Monroe and Christian Brothers will be webcast on

It had been reported to The Observer that all four of the Packers games on Thursday were to be webcast, but that was not the case.

Colquitt’s Thursday games were played at Regions Park. Only the games play at Hoover High were webcast.

Packers coach Rush Propst raved over the play of Hill, the rising senior wide receiver/defensive back who committed to Ole Miss last week.

Although he did not have complete statistics at his disposal, Propst said Hill had “at least 10 touchdowns and three picks.”

“He knows how to make plays,” Propst said, adding that Hill was one of the top players in the tournament on Thursday.

Propst also said he was pleased with the play of quarterbacks Cole Segraves and Daniel Mobley.

“Both Cole and Daniel had great days,” Propst said.

“Everybody played well,” Propst said of his 28-player 7-on-7 team, which won the Southwest Georgia Select 7-on-7 Championships in Moultrie last week.

“Anytime you go 4-0 to start something like this, you’ve done well. I was really pleased. This helps us so much to get this part of our game polished up.”

Propst said he hopes to be at least 6-1 after pool play to get a better seeding for the double-elimination portion of the tournament that starts Friday evening and ends Saturday.

The Packers are expected to have their hands full when they meet defending Alabama state champion Daphne High at 9:30 CT this morning.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
