 112 ex-Georgia high schoolers in NFL

There were 112 former Georgia high school football players found on NFL rosters as of Thursday, according to research by GHSF Daily. They are listed below.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

*Five Georgia high schools have at least three alumni on NFL rosters. Peachtree Ridge and Stephenson lead with four each. Carver (Columbus), Sandy Creek and Statesboro each have three.

 

*The Panthers and Texans have more former Georgia players on their roster than any other NFL team with seven. Next are the Bengals and Colts (six each). Four Georgia players are on the Falcons' roster.

 

*Twenty-three Georgia NFL players played at the University of Georgia. Georgia Tech claims eight. Seven played at Auburn. LSU claims four. No other school has more than three.

 

*Several widely known Georgia players are not on rosters this season, some who have had long careers. They include Champ Bailey (Charlton County), Dunta Robinson (Clarke Central), Tashard Choice (Lovejoy) and Chris Scott (Lovejoy).

 

The players are listed in the alphabetical order of their Georgia high schools. The NFL has not made this data available, so some mistakes and omissions are likely. Remember that NFL rosters change almost daily.

Class A Power Rankings

Brookstone, Commerce take early lead

Private school Brookstone and public school Commerce are the leaders in the first Class A power rankings of the season, which were released earlier this week by the Georgia High School Association with the help of MaxPreps.

 

The GHSA holds separate state championships for Class A public and private schools. Each division will hold a 16-team playoff to determine its champion. Teams will be seeded 1-16 based on a points system, with region champions getting the highest seeds. Note that teams playing a non-region schedule are not eligible for the playoffs, and games against those teams are not counted in the rankings.

 

Here are this week's complete rankings:

Trivia

Four Questions Presented By Wilson   

2

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

 

Jamie Abrams, Lamar County

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career? "My father, Jerry Abrams. He was big on things like toughness and attention to detail, which as we all know are extremely important in the game of football. My dad was not a high school coach. I can't narrow it down to one [coach] because I have worked for three great coaches in this state - Tim Glanton [South Paulding], Roger Holmes [Dublin] and Franklin Stephens [Lamar County]. I learned different things from all of them that I now use to run the program I am charged with leading."

 

2. Who is the best Georgia player you ever faced? "Probably Jerick McKinnon at Sprayberry. He played quarterback, and we couldn't keep him contained either year we faced him when I was at South Paulding."

 

3. What is the best team you ever faced as a coach? "The best I've faced would probably have to be last year's Benedictine team. There is no disrespect to Lovett [which beat Lamar County in the 2013 Class AA final after Lamar beat Benedictine in the semifinals], I just feel that Benedictine was the best team we faced, and we just happened to play our best on that night. Both of those games could have gone either way."

 

4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change? "Being at a small school, I would have to say the private-school debate is the biggest issue. I just don't feel like we are on a level playing field year in, year out."

 

Wilson is the official ball of the GHSA for football, softball, basketball and baseball. Wilson - More Win.
