Packers ready for Norcross rematch

Posted: Updated:
MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

 

Colquitt County head football coach Rush Propst  and his Packer football team are embracing the Road Warrior mentality in the state playoffs.

 

The Packers are in the state semifinals for a fourth straight year and yes are on the road Friday night at Norcross.

This will be Colquitt County's 17th playoff game in the last four seasons.

All but two of them have been played in Moultrie.

Some may have forgotten these two teams played a scrimmage game where Norcross back Alvin Kamara had a big first half for the Blue Devils.

Rush Propst believes the improved play of his senior quarterback Cole Seagraves is a big reason the Packers are in the semifinals.

The coach believes each team's star offensive players will be the key to victory Friday.

"I believe he (Seagraves) has a chance to be the best player in the state. Just like Kamara believes he has a chance to be the best player in the state. Rightfully so both of them do. I think it boils down to those two things."

Game time is 7:30 p.m. Friday in Norcross.
