12 Packers named All-Region

MOULTRIE — Colquitt County placed 12 players on the All-Region 1-AAAAAA football team selected by the league’s coaches, but, inexplicably, Packers senior wide receiver Bobby Hill was relegated to the second team.

Senior offensive tackle Octavius Jackson, who has committed to Florida; junior defensive lineman Jamiyus Pittman; senior linebacker John Gray; and senior cornerback Johnny Ward, who has committed to South Florida, were named to the first team.

Senior Travis Register was named to the second team both as an offensive lineman and as a defensive lineman.

Hill and senior quarterback Cole Segraves also were selected for the second team.

Senior running back John Boatwright, senior center Dalton Dillon, junior wide receiver Todd Boyd, junior linebacker Brandon Key and senior punter Tyler Yost received honorable mention.

Region champion Camden County swept the individual awards with Jeff Herron being named the Coach of the Year; J.J. Green, the Player of the Year; linebacker Jarred Davis, the Defensive Player of the Year; quarterback Brice Ramsey the Offensive Player of the Year; and return specialist Green, the Special Teams Player of the Year.

Segraves has completed 163-of-273 passes for 2,098 yards and 10 touchdowns this season while helping lead the Packers to a state semifinal game against Norcross.

Gray is the Packers leading tackler with 143 total. Ward has one interception and 73 tackles, including six sacks.

Register starts at left guard and on the defensive line where he has been credited with 48 total tackles. Pittman has 76 tackles, including six sacks.

Boatwright has rushed for a team-leading 641 yards and also leads the Packers with 14 touchdowns.

Boyd has 40 catches for 771 yards and five touchdowns. Key has 94 tackles, has caused a fumble and recovered a fumble.

Yost is averaging 37.2 yards on his 48 punts this season.

The first team wide receivers are Brandon Roe of Coffee and Chris Trimmings of Brunswick, leaving Hill, who has committed to Ole Miss and has 73 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns, on the second team.

“Irresponsible,” was how Colquitt County coach Rush Propst characterized Hill’s omission from the first team.

Propst also said he would have liked to have seen Britt Jones recognized on the All-Region team. A senior, Jones has been the team’s snapper for three seasons. Propst said he could not remember an errant snap during that time.

The All-Region first team offense also includes Ramsey, quarterback; Nick Burgman of Lowndes and Malcolm Joseph of Valdosta, running backs; Conner Lockhart, Camden County, tight end; Tyler Aultman, Lowndes, Maverick Morris, Coffee, Justin Lott, Coffee and Tyler Davis Camden County, offensive line; Mac Loudermilk, Valdosta, punter; Gustavo Gonzales, Lowndes, kicker.

The first team defense also includes, Anthony Johnson of Camden Count, Rafael Hardee of Camden County and Chuntony Johnson of Valdosta, defensive line; Davis and Tre Jackson of Lowndes, linebackers; and Tiquan Lang of Lowndes, J.J. Green of Camden County and Kalvarez Bessent of Camden County.

The second team offense includes Segraves, quarterback; Rashad Daniels of Tift County and Nelson Herring of Valdosta, running backs; Erich Tori of Lowndes, tight end; Hill and Sherrod Inman of Valdosta, wide receivers; Register, Jamal Hunter of Valdosta, Luke Griffis of Camden County, Larry Scarborough of Lowndes and Dyshon Sims of Valdosta.

The second-team defense includes Register, Darius Sapp of Valdosta, Sam Washington of Lowndes, and Eli Thomas of Valdosta, defensive line; Zach Moore of Coffee, Demetrius Newberry of Brunswick and Shaun Hutchinson of Camden County, linebackers; and Brandon Roberts and Eric Hart of Lowndes and Tavish Douglas of Coffee, defensive backs.

Also earning honorable mention are Shelby Wilkes, Valdosta quarterback; Cory Dixon, Brunswick quarterback; Keegan McGovern, Coffee quarterback; Chris Williams, Camden County running back; Ronnie Stoney, Valdosta offensive lineman; Mikey Call, Camden County offensive lineman; Quincey Jones, Valdosta offensive lineman; Anfernee Chandler, Valdosta offensive lineman; Cole Harrell, Coffee offensive lineman; Mac Loudermilk, Valdosta tight end; Raquan Ross, Coffee wide receiver; Lavosh Wynn, Brunswick wide receiver; Anthony Smith, Valdosta defensive lineman; Brian Bell, Lowndes defensive lineman; Conner Lockhart, Camden County linebacker; Austin McCant, Tift County linebacker; Quan Tobler, Coffee linebacker; Caleb Beasley, Coffee linebacker; Brice Ramsey, Camden County kicker; and Mason Carr, Tift County punter.

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.
