Callaway High School's version of ‘Slash' has been tearing up defenses in West Georgia for three years and college coaches have taken notice.
Last season, Quan Bray rushed for over 1,000 yards, threw for an additional 1,000 and accounted for 28 touchdowns. As a freshman tailback, he rushed for over 1,000 and repeated the milestone as a sophomore.
Callaway High School head coach Pete Wiggins said Bray as accumulated close to 4,300 yards. Wiggins plans to have Bray back under center this fall.
"The kid works hard. He's a great leader, a three sport athlete and he excels at all three," Wiggins said. "Right now, he's got a lot of offers on the table. He's excited about a lot of the opportunities to play ball at the next level."

Clemson wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott and offensive coordinator Billy Napier team up on the recruiting effort for Bray.
"They just make sure I'm interested and they tell me I can fit into the offense really well, like ASAP," Bray said.
He has several trips to Tigertown under his belt, including visits to camps every summer since he was a freshman.
"It gets better every time I go up there," Bray said.
When asked about his interest in Clemson, he said, "There's a lot of interest. They're probably one of the top and will be one of the top when I narrow it down. I'll be narrowing it down soon."
A top five will be narrowed down sometime this summer, before the start of the season.
Several factors will play into those that make the cut.
"I want to get a good education, first. I want to get a chance of playing, as soon as I come in," Bray said.
So far this spring, Bray's visited Clemson, Georgia, Alabama and Georgia Tech.
"I went (to Clemson) just for a little visit. It was probably last month or so," he said.
Wiggins went through a laundry list of Bray's characteristics that have college programs from across the country looking to Hogansville, Ga.

Bray projects as slot receiver/scat back at Clemson, Virginia Tech projects him as a corner and Georgia Tech and Stanford would like him at quarterback.
Wiggins believes Bray is versatile enough to play several positions.
"Of course, I think he's a great quarterback. I think he could be a great running back. He could play corner. He's also our kickoff returner and punt returner. He does some punting for us," Wiggins said.
"He does a lot of things for us and brings a lot to the table."
Bray doesn't mind what position he plays at the next level, just as long as he's got the ball in his hands. He seems himself along the same lines of former Clemson running back C.J. Spiller.
"He's just explosive, can explode every play. He makes things happen—a playmaker. That's what I try to do," Bray said.
A commitment will come when he feels the time is right. Right now, he plans to take all five official visits.
Bray plans to play in the Under-Armour All America Game.
"He's smart in the classroom, as well as on the field. You can do a lot of things with him. I just think he'll keep getting better with each game and the more experience he gets," Wiggins said.
"He comes to work every day and I think he keeps getting better each day."
