Tribute to Corry

Georgia lost one of its most successful coaches on Friday, when Bill Corry of Morgan County died at age 89. Corry was a head coach for only seven seasons (1956-62) but won four state titles - 1956, 1958, 1959 and 1962 - before entering administration. He is a member of the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. Here are Georgia coaches who have won at least three GHSA championships in football. None did it in a career as short as Corry's. His record was 78-6-3. See Corry's obituary in The Madisonian.

John Urzua of North Gwinnett threw seven touchdown passes Saturday in a 52-49 victory against McEachern. The record for TD passes in a GHSA game is nine, set by Ed Staten of North Whitfield in 1962. Which quarterbacks have thrown for eight touchdowns in a GHSA game? (Answer Tuesday)


Answer to Friday's question:The Georgia yardage leaders in 2013 were Nick Chubb of Cedartown (2,721 rushing), Deshaun Watson of Gainesville (4,431 passing) and Preston Williams of Lovejoy (1,402 receiving).


Four Questions Presented By GHS Scoreboard Show 


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


Lee Chomskis, Vidalia

1. Who is/was the most influential person in your coaching career?"The most influential coach in my career is Dan Pitts. His incredible character, high standards and unwavering discipline have made an impact on hundreds of coaches throughout the state. His ability to take less talent and win is undeniable. He was one that could take his players and win, or take your players and win. Dan Pitts has had a long-lasting impact on football in the state of Georgia."

4. If you were Gary Phillips, the new head of the GHSA, what would be the first rule that you would try to change? "The first rule change would be adding a 2.0 multiplier to all private schools that that are participating in GHSA. I believe that every public school - city and county - should abide by the multiplier for any student living outside of their attended school zone."
