MOULTRIE – With a record-breaking performance by Colquitt County High senior running back Daijun Edwards thrown in, the No. 4 Packers are on top of the No. 1 Grayson Rams 17-0 Friday on Tom White Field at Mack Tharpe Stadium.
In the first quarter, Edwards broke the school's all-time rushing record held by Shiheim King since 2014. Edwards had 3,771 yards going into Friday's game. In the first half, he ran 14 times for 52 yards and now has 3,823 (King had 3,787).
Colquitt, the first two times it had the football, scored on Jaycee Harden touchdown passes. He was 11-for-15 passing for 93 yards. The first Packer drive ended on a fade to Tajh Sanders of 16 yards.
Nyquan Washington, playing free safety, intercepted Grayson's Deyon Cannon to set up Colquitt on the Ram 40. Grayson had just one first down in the opening quarter.
Harden hit Lemeke Brockington on another fade route with three minutes left in the period. That touchdown was five yards and made it 14-0.
Jason Gallardo, with two PATs, capped Colquitt's first second-quarter possession with a 39-yard field goal.
Grayson had CJ Dixon playing quarterback in the second. He guided his team all the way to the Packer 1 on fourth down, but tackle Zy Brockington stuck tailback Lafayette Gurvin Jr. for lost yards at 1:56.
