No. 15 Colquitt County (Ga.) dominates behind QB Chase Parrish

By

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.
