Top Performances Presented By The Learning Company

9Lawrence, Walker making early impact

Trevor Lawrence and Chase Walker proved last week that it's never too early to throw for 400 yards or rush for 300.

 

They had the games of their short careers on Friday - both are freshmen - and lead this week's Top Individual Performances.

 

Lawrence is a 6-foot-3, 175-pound quarterback who many college coaches already know about. He already has a profile on 247Sports.

 

"He's a big-time quarterback," Cartersville coach Joey King said. "Trevor throws a good ball and sees the field very well. He is good enough with his feet to keep plays alive, and his composure and maturity for a freshman are very impressive."

 

Walker is a 5-8, 175-pound fullback on the verge of a 1,000-yard season. He has run for 875 yards and nine touchdowns for a 3-4 team. Southeast Bulloch coach Pat Collins says Walker has been a catalyst in the team's three-game winning streak, but wants to make sure he maintains a level head.

 

"Chase Walker has been the beneficiary of solid offensive line play," Collins said. "He has learned how to stay behind offensive linemen and continue to work for yardage. ... I am impressed that Chase is quick to share his success, especially with the offensive linemen, and has remained humble as recognition has come his way."

 

Top five

*Cartersville freshman QB Trevor Lawrence was 17-of-33 passing for 400 yards and three touchdowns in a 44-3 victory over Northwest Whitfield.

 

*Colquitt County RB Sihiem King rushed for 302 yards and three touchdowns in a 48-20 victory over then-No. 3 Valdosta.

*Pickens RB Shannon Brooks rushed for 274 yards and four touchdowns - one a 99-yard run - on 13 carries in a 69-34 victory over LaFayette. Brooks also threw a 65-yard touchdown and caught a 45-yard pass.

 

*Southeast Bulloch freshman FB Chase Walker rushed for 303 yards and two touchdowns on 39 carries in a 24-18 victory over Johnson of Savannah.

RB Devin Nixonwas the main beneficiary of their blocking as he gained 297 yards and scored four times.

Roswell has amassed more than 1,000 yards the past two games without allowing a sack.

Trivia

Richmond Academy's 1956 state championship team will be honored on Thursday in Augusta at the school's third-annual hall-of-fame induction. The team's most famous player was the Atlanta Journal's Class AAA lineman of the year. Who was he? (Answer Wednesday)

 

Answer to Monday's question: Bill Chappell was the head coach for Dalton during 33 years of its streak of 52 consecutive winning seasons.

 

Four Questions
Presented By NFHS Network 
1

GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.

 

Steve Davenport, Woodland-Stockbridge

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? "William 'Buck' Godfrey. I played on his first Southwest DeKalb team, and he gave me my first coaching job in '90. That year we lost to Valdosta in the state finals, but the experience whetted my appetite to be a football coach. He has through the years continued to be a coaching mentor in my life. I served as his offensive coordinator in '95 when we won the state championship."

 

2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced? "In '03 while I was head coach at Decatur High School, we played Buford in the Georgia Dome. They were as well-coached a team as I have ever prepared to play, and talented. Darius Walker broke Herschel Walker's touchdown record in that game, but they had a lot of other talented players. The Parkview team in 2001 was a very close second."

 

3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach? "As an assistant at SWD in '95, we suffered our only loss of that season against Douglass, led by Jamal Lewis. He went for over 200 that night. He was big, explosive and fast. The best high school football player that I have ever seen is still Quincy Carter, though. He had all the tools."

 

4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change? "Put the semifinals back in the Dome. Reaching the Dome was a shining moment in my coaching career [Decatur in 2003], and I recall how it brought that community together."
