Green Ready to Represent

ATLANTA – As J.J. Green streaked toward the end zone, Brice Ramsey's pass hit him right in the hands—each one.

First the left hand. Then the right. Then both, as Green nestled the ball into his body, landing both feet along the edge of the endzone for Camden County's third touchdown of the night.

That's pretty indicative of how the night went for Green, Ramsey and the rest of the Camden County Wildcats Saturday. The Georgia-bound duo of Green and Ramsey made few, if any, mistakes as the Wildcats dismantled Peachtree Ridge 42-0 in the 21st annual Corky Kell Classic.

Green was on the receiving end of the aforementioned 34-yard touchdown pass from Ramsey, and the diminutive athlete made his presence felt until Camden County head coach Jeff Herron pulled his starters after the third quarter.

"I felt our team played well. We came out here and executed almost every play. That's what we wanted to do," said Green. "I think Coach Herron is pretty happy right now. We came here to the Georgia Dome and won 42-0 against Peachtree Ridge, one of the top high schools in the Atlanta area."

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Green carried the ball eight times for 89 yards, all while hampered by a bruised calf he suffered in a scrimmage against South Cobb last week.

"I played pretty well today, but I was not 100 percent," said Green. "I had to come out here and battle with my team."

Green committed to the Bulldogs in April, turning down offers from Stanford, Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech, and those schools continue to call in spite of his commitment.

"Stanford, Vanderbilt, almost every school that's offered me is still trying to get a piece of me," Green said.

Green was told by Georgia coaches that they will use him on offense next season, and he expects to be in Athens for the Georgia's season opener against Buffalo next Saturday. Green also can't wait to continue playing with Ramsey next season at Georgia.

"It's going to be nice. I like the state of Georgia. I was born and raised here," said Green. "I just want to represent my hometown and Camden County, then go up to Athens and play well, too."
