Valdosta Chasing Colquitt County in 1-AAAA


Morse, Tim, The Florida Times Union


Year after year, the competition in Region 1-AAAA seemingly gets

tougher. This year is no different as region teams gear up for

another season.

Colquitt County has almost taken over the mountain from

Valdosta as it has won the region title for the past two years.

Colquitt will again be the team to beat, but Valdosta, Lowndes

and Tift County will follow closely behind.

COLQUITT COUNTY

For the last three seasons, the team to beat was the Colquitt

County Packers. This year will be no different as Jim Hughes

returns the bulk of his 1995 squad that finished 8-4. If some

underclassmen step up at some key positions, then Hughes may

have enough bullets to win another state title.

Junior Reggie Stancil (5 feet 10, 190 pounds), one of the

region's best athletes, will start at quarterback. Stancil

backed up Matt Parker last season and started a couple of games

late in the season. He should have plenty of targets to fire at

as speedy wideout Carlos Johnson (5-6, 150) returns for his

senior year.

Hughes boasts the return of nearly his entire backfield. Junior

Simmie Hall (5-8, 165) and Broderick Stewart (6-1, 200) return.

Stewart could be shifted to fullback.

Hughes will have a solid line. Senior tackle Shane Mims (6-5,

280) anchors the offensive line and should provide the team with

valuable leadership. Center Jacob Hammock (6-0, 195) returns

along with senior Demetrius Milton (6-0, 255), who will likely

play tackle. Tight end Warikeith Williams (6-5, 170) is a sure

hand at the position.

However, the team's strength will be on defense, where Hughes

boasts two of the best defensive lineman in the state. Defensive

end Jackie McNeal (6-2, 190) and linebacker Jerome McIntyre

(6-4, 215) return for their senior campaigns. Senior Eric Bell

(6-0, 195) adds depth and size at linebacker.

Senior Frank Smith (6-4, 235) is a solid candidate at defensive

end.

Seniors Shawn Bonner (6-2, 165) and Chris Roberts (6-1, 175)

will take care of the secondary.

LOWNDES

Milt Miller won't admit it, but this may be one of the best

teams ever assembled at the school. Fourteen starters return,

but more importantly, a defense that opened the season posting

seven consecutive shutouts returns nine starters.

Junior cornerback Delrick Bradley (5-9, 160), free safety

Morris Lane (6-2, 170), senior cornerback Eriles McCullough

(5-11, 175) and strong safety Tyrone Wright (5-11, 175) return

to pace the secondary.

The linebacker position is solid with sophomore Stewart Sirmans

(5-10, 185) and junior Dennis Lane (5-11, 175) at outside

linebacker, while senior Marcus Gaines (6-0, 285) will play

middle linebacker.

Senior Sam Dykes (6-1, 205) will start at defensive tackle and

junior Tyler Mitchell (6-2, 195) will play defensive end. Only

senior defensive tackle Jonathan Weizorek (6-2, 185) and

sophomore Jake Corbett (6-0, 175) were not regular starters last

season.

However, Miller's questions are on offense where he has to find

replacements for running back Edward Mack and quarterback

Dewayne Johnson. Junior Brandon Cowart (5-11, 175), who saw

action last season, will be the quarterback and junior Terrence

Holsendolph (5-11, 190) will be the running back. …
