Propst touts Defense in Friday Night Win

“We were just more physical than they were,” Propst said after his Packers humbled one of the nation’s top programs – a program he built and led to five state championships before coming to Moultrie in 2008.

 

Colquitt County held Hoover to just 135 total yards and just one offensive touchdown and limited highly recruited running back Bradrick Shaw to 29 yards on 19 carries.

 

The Packers forced Hoover to punt 11 times, eight times in the first half.

 

“The credit goes to our defensive staff and our defensive kids for their preparation and their resilience,” Propst said.  “We were led by (Bull) Barge and (Quintin) Hampton and (Tomarcio) Reese, but everybody played well.

 

“They couldn’t run on us and when they couldn’t run, they were dead in the water.”

 

The two-time defending state champions in Alabama’s largest classification had their 30-game winning streak stopped last week at home in a 24-21 loss to Miami Central.

 

With the loss to the Packers, Hoover starts 0-2 for the first time since 1994 and has lost two in a row for the first time since 1998.

 

The Packers broke the game open in the fourth quarter when Sihiem King ripped off touchdown runs of 64 and 36 yards.

 

King rushed for 169 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Packers to 393 yards against the No. 1 team in Alabama’s Class 7A. Quarterback Chase Parrish completed 24-of-34 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns.

 

And the Packers won despite turning the ball over five times and being penalized 11 times for 118 yards.

 

With the game tied 7-7 at the half, Colquitt scored the first two times it had the ball in the third quarter and never allowed the Bucs closer than seven points the rest of the way.

 

Despite holding Hoover to just 36 yards of offense and forcing eight punts, Colquitt County could manage just a 7-7 tie at half.

 

The Packers scored on their second possession of the game when Ty Lee gathered in a short pass from quarterback Chase Parrish and took it 31 yards to the end zone.

 

The Luis Martinez extra point put the Packers up 7-0 with 6:59 left in the first quarter.

 

Hoover managed just one first down in the first half, but still rallied to tie the game when Jeremiah Moon picked off an errant Parrish pass and ran it 50 yards for a touchdown with 2:23.

 

The Packers had other opportunities in the first half. Martinez missed a 54-yard field goal attempt and, with 15.3 seconds, was wide left from 35 yards out.

 

Colquitt also had a second-and-goal at the Bucs 23 in the first quarter, but Parrish lost control of a snap that cost the Packers 12 yards and then Colquitt turned it over when Lee fumbled after catching a Parrish pass.

 

The Bucs had 18 yards rushing and 18 passing in the first two quarters.

 

The Packers drove 81 yards on 11 plays after taking the second-half kickoff and scored when King took a direct snap and ran it in from a yard out. The Martinez conversion put Colquitt up 14-7 with 8:14 left in the half.

 

Parrish had completions of 13 yards to Marquan Greene and 21 to Kiel Pollard in the drive.

 

After forcing Hoover’s ninth punt of the game, Colquitt needed just six plays to score on a 7-yard pass from Parrish to Zay Lewis. The Packers lead went to 21-7 after the Martinez conversion with 3:53 left in the third quarter.

 

On the first play of the Bucs next possession, Tomarcio Reese picked off a pass to put the Packers in business at the Hoover 17.

 

But Colquitt then tried a trick play that backfired when King attempted a pass that was picked off by Jeremy Williams.

 

Hoover pulled to within 14 on a 19-yard scoring pass from Christopher Vacarella to Alex Elam with 10:19 left in the game.

 

And Bucs appeared to briefly regain the momentum when Greene fumbled the ball away after receiving a pass from Parrish with 8:01 remaining.

 

But the Packers held and forced the 11th and final Hoover punt.

 

Pollard’s 4-yard return set the Packers up on their own 36 and on the first play, King found large crease on the right side, sprinted through it and took the ball 64 yards to the end zone. The lead was then 28-14 with 6:19 left.

 

Hoover managed a first down on each of its next two possessions, but turned the ball over own downs with 5:25 left and 2:34 left in the game.

 

And King put the game out of reach when he ran 36 yards for the final touchdown of the game with 53 seconds remaining.

 

Colquitt is now 2-0 and will be back home next Friday to play host to Crisp County, which lost to Lee County 49-12 on Friday.

 

“Our defense will keep us in most games,” Propst said. “We’ve just got to eliminate mistakes and continue to get better.”

 

The other four Region 1-AAAAAA teams also won on Friday with Tift County blanking Cook 28-0, Camden County pounding Dutchtown 42-6, Valdosta downing Thomas County Central 28-10 and Lowndes edging Plant (Fla.) 20-14.
