Dawg Post Sunday Update:

Dawg Post takes a look at some of the top performers in the two big state championship games Saturday night.

Trey Creamer:

 The Cartersville athlete had a great game for the Hurricanes scoring four total touchdowns in Cartersville’s  58-7 win. Creamer rushed for three touchdowns and caught a 20 yard pass for a score. The Minnesota commit played well on defense too, setting the tone of Thomson’s first drive with two crucial tackles. The senior back rushed for 107 yards in the game.

Deangelo Gibbs:

 The Grayson star was fantastic all night, and helped the Rams offense early with a big touchdown catch. Gibbs beat Clemson commit LeAnthony Williams one on one on a post route to get the Rams on the scoreboard. Quarterback Chase Brice looked Gibbs way multiple times late in the game when they needed a play. Gibbs is one of the top defensive back prospects in the country, but certainly made an impact all over the field, helping the Rams win the 7A state championship.

Sam Diroberto:

 The Roswell linebacker was all over the place for the Hornets, whose defense held the Rams offense quiet for most of the game. The senior diagnosed plays well, and was a constant force against a talented Rams rushing attack. He tackled well and did a nice job of setting the edge and not letting any Rams back outside for big gains. The 6-foot-1 212-pound outside linebacker really stood out on that Hornet defense.

Trevor Lawrence:

 He’s a five-star quarterback for a reason. Lawrence had another huge night to remember on the biggest stage. He didn’t light up the stat sheet, but he led the ‘Canes offense to 58 points and had multiple long touchdown passes called back due to penalties. The arm talent is there, but Lawrence also showed he can escape the pocket and make plays with his feet.

Jaquavius Lane:

 The Grayson receiver made a name for himself in a big way after scoring two late touchdowns for the Rams, including what we thought was a game winner late in the 4th quarter. Lane showed great burst and playmaking ability all night, especially when the team needed him most. His 35-yard score with just over a minute to play was huge, and his two point conversion catch tied the game. Syracuse has offered, and more will be coming soon. Lane could emerge as a top receiver in Georgia for the 2018 class.

Trase Fezzia:

 Another explosive playmaker for Cartersville, Fezzia made plays in every aspect of the game. He took the opening kickoff 52-yards and retunred a fumble 60 yards for a touchdown to break the game wide open. The senior showed great speed and big play ability in his last high school football game.

Corey Reed:

 The Roswell receiver had a great game himself; making bitch catches all night for quarterback Malik Willis. The Grayson defense is talented all the way around, but Reed used his size and reliable hands to make a big impact in the passing game. Reed beat Grayson defensive back Jamyest Williams for the game’s first touchdown from 36 yards away. He is going to be a reliable weapon for Louisville at the next level.

Jonathan Cruz:

 The ‘Canes kicker was perfect on the night, hitting three field goals from 50, 41, and 37 yards away. He also did his best Trevor Lawrence impression, throwing a beautiful deep pass to convert a fake punt in the first half. The junior kicker is one of the best in the state, and made it look easy on the biggest stage.
