Footballs fill the air in Moultrie

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Colquitt County head coach Rush Propst started what is now one of the biggest seven on seven passing tournaments at Hoover High in Alabama.

The Packers head coach is building a tournament in Moultrie to rival that at his former school.


The third annual Colquitt County seven on seven passing camp started Thursday afternoon at Packer Park.

The tournament has 14 teams and they included some of the best high school programs in the southeast.

Nease High from St. Augustine, Florida and Alabama powers Foley, Oxford and Robert E Lee are battling some the Peach State's top teams including Colquitt County, Valdosta High and Houston County.

The games may be just touch football but Propst says coaches are seeing the benefit from taking part in these seven on seven games.


Rush Propst said. "The game has become a better throw game in high school because of this stuff. You can throw it better but I still believe you have got to stop the run and run the football. I don't care what anybody tells you. You have to be able to do those two things but you better be able to throw it. You might get behind and better be able to spread it so."

The elimination tournament begins Friday at 9:00 a.m. at Packer Park.
