Quarterbacks Lead Super 11


Dennis, Lawrence, The Florida Times Union


After a couple of lean years, the passing quarterbacks are back

on this year's Florida Times-Union Super 11 team.

As usual, though, the throwers must share the offensive glory

with the runners. This year's squad, which features the best

players in the TimesUnion's South Georgia circulation area

regardless of position, has three standout running backs to go

along with the two quarterbacks.

The two slingers are Valdosta senior Dusty Bonner and Brooks

County junior Tommy Jackson, who together threw for 3,335 yards

last year.

The runners are Effingham County's Levi Scott, Clinch County's

Tennille Williams and Camden County's Bobby Wilson. The three

combined for 3,656 yards in 1995.

The only other pure offensive player on the squad is tackle Tye

Crews of Charlton County.

Crews' teammate, Donahue Brunson, made the team at tight end

and defensive end. Brunswick's Jacoma Montford is another

two-way pick, playing at linebacker and fullback.

The pure defensive players on the team are Valdosta defensive

back Willie Gary, Lowndes cornerback Tyrone Wright and Colquitt

County end Jackie McNeal.

Bonner, who started for the first time last year and guided the

Wildcats to an 11-2 record and the state quarterfinals, stands 6

feet 2, weighs 200 pounds and has a rifle arm.

Jackson, who led the defending state Class A champion Trojans to

a 9-2 record last year as a sophomore, is even bigger at 6-3, 210.

Bonner rushed for 656 yards on 137 carries for a respectable

4.8-yard average from the shotgun and from under center.

His physical strong suit is probably his arm. He throws the

ball 40-50 yards with ease, but he can be inconsistent. He

completed 94-of-189 passes for 1,255 yards and 13 touchdowns in

his first year as a starter.

But perhaps as significant is the fact that he also threw 10

interceptions and that he scored 15 touchdowns on the ground,

most on short runs.

"He has all the ability he needs," first-year Valdosta coach

Mike O'Brien said. "The best thing about Dusty is that he's

tough and he's smart. He's a very intelligent kid."

Jackson doesn't run as much as Bonner. He's more of a pure

drop-back passer. But he's pretty good at that.

His 2,100 yards through the air last year was good enough to

earn him the No. 5 spot in the state in passing yardage. And

he's the yardage leader in Georgia among returning quarterbacks,

so he's a good bet to lead the state this year.

Effingham's Scott, a 5-10, 170-pounder who has all the

attributes of the typical fast running back, was the leading

rusher in South Georgia last year, and his 1,798 yards made him

the No. …
