In one of the top high school games of the season, Hapeville Charter led by four-star William Poole travel north to play a dominant Cartersville team. Dawg Post caught up with Poole, who gave us his thoughts on the upcoming matc-hup.
When you think of Cartersville, you think of 5-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The nation's top player in the 2018 class is already a celebrity in north Georgia, and Poole knows he has to be at his best in order to stop Lawrence and the Hurricanes passing attack.
"He (Lawrence) is a 'what can't he do?' type of quarterback." Poole said. "He has great vision, accuracy, he throws the deep ball well, and he's shown he can scramble too. He's a complete quarterback."
Poole said he's played well so far this season, but Hapeville has only played three games so far. The top ranked quarterback in Georgia has one interception this season, and accumulated about a dozen tackles so far. If the Hornets want to stop the Hurricanes, Poole will need help from teammate Chris Smith. Smith is a top cornerback prospect in 2018 and has been getting a ton of action early this season.
"Most teams are definitely throwing at Christopher Smith's side more than me. He's been solid so far and doing well. It's no different than coming at me. He's progressed well and he's an ultimate competitor. I think he's going to be better than me."
Smith does not have a Georgia offer, but he has one from Auburn and Southern Cal. Together they are the best cornerback duo in the state, and have the chance to give Lawrence some trouble in tonight's game.
