Packers preparing for National Signing Day

MOULTRIE —  Colquitt County could have as many as eight Packers fill out letters of intent on Wednesday, Feb. 6, National Signing Day.

Three Packers who have committed to Division I schools remain solid, Packers coach Rush Propst said Tuesday.

Wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Hill has committed to Ole Miss; offensive tackle Octavius Jackson to Florida: and cornerback Johnny Ward to South Florida.

Hill and Jackson were all-state selections last season.

Propst said all-state linebacker John Gray and hard-hitting safety Garrett Pearce are planning to visit Valdosta State this weekend and could add to large contingent of Packers already playing for the Division II national champion Blazers.

Quarterback Cole Segraves and kickers Will Bannister are weighing offers, Propst said. He also expects snapper Britt Jones to get an opportunity to play next season.

Propst said some of those players could receive other offers this week and next as recruiting heats up.

Plans for a National Signing Day ceremony at the high school have not been completed because Propst will be in Austin, Texas, the day before National Signing Day with Jackson, who has been selected to play in the fourth annual International Bowl in Austin, Texas.

Propst said Jackson could sign with Florida in a ceremony held that Wednesday in Austin before returning to Moultrie.

Setting a date for the annual football banquet also has been challenge and has not yet been nailed down. Propst said it could be held in March.

Spring football practice is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 7.

Propst said plans could change, but expects to practice on May 7, May 8 and May 11, four days the following week and three days the next week.

He also said he hoped to have rising senior quarterback Daniel Mobley ready for at least a limited role at spring practice.

Mobley, who started three games and threw for 1,015 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder on Dec. 18.

Propst said he thought Mobley could begin throwing again around April 22.

PACKERS NOTES: The day and time of the Packers game at Hoover next season has not been finalized, but Propst said it could be at 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 2, which is Labor Day.

He said the game will be broadcast by ESPN and could be part of a doubleheader package with a college football game.

Propst said his coaching staff remains intact, but said there is a chance one or more could take other jobs.

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.
