Colquitt County coach Rush Probst told the Moultrie (Ga.) Observer this week that he wanted to see focus and intensity from his team after a disappointing week of practice.
Well, he sure seemed to get what he was looking for.
The Packers, No. 15 in the Super 25, rolled over Plant (Tampa) by a final of 42-8 and has outscored its first two opponents, 87-22.
The defending 6A state champion Packers have now won 17 consecutive games.

Colquitt County (2-0) was led by superstar quarterback Chase Parrish, who opened the scoring with a 53-yard run and threw TD passes of 45 to Ty Lee and 51 yards to Shaun Bonner before the first quarter ended. The 51-yarder was a throwback screen play to the tight end. A 43-yard TD pass from Parrish to Isaiah Thomas, a drive set up by a blocked punt, was all the scoring in the second quarter.
Parrish finished 11-for-12 passing for 200 yards, along with the three touchdowns.
Lee also ran for a touchdown in the second half.
Plant got on the board late in the fourth quarter after the score was already 42-0.
Colquitt County hosts Crisp County (Cordele, Ga.) next Friday; Plant returns to Florida and faces Hillsborough on Friday.
