Colquitt County Aiming for Atlanta
In each of the past four seasons, Colquitt County football has made it to the state semifinals. Unfortunately, they don't have any state titles in that span.
Head Coach Rush Propst is clear about his team's goal for this season: state championship or bust.
"The state championship is what we're here to play for â" nothing else, nothing more, nothing less," Propst said.
Propst has a loaded roster to work with in 2013. The Packers return most defensive starters, including defensive tackle Jamiyus Pittman, an Ole Miss commit.
On offense, they have wide receiver Todd Boyd on the outside and Gabe Mobley anchoring the offensive line. If they get solid production from the quarterback position, Colquitt County will be in good shape for a run to the Georgia Dome in December.
For Propst, the roadblocks to a state championship are a difficult schedule and an inexperienced offensive line. But a talented senior class is confident they can do what the past four Colquitt County teams haven't been able to do.
"I think we're gonna win it. I seriously do," Pittman said. "I got faith in the defense. But if our offense gets clicking, we gonna win it, no doubt."
