Wildcats looking for playmakers

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  During SEC Media Days last week, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray says incoming freshman receiver Malcolm Mitchell from Valdosta was turning heads during the player only workouts.

Valdosta High head coach Rance Gillespie glad to hear one of his former players is off to a great start at college.

Malcolm Mitchell and Jay Rome are two members for the Georgia dream team recruiting class that are expected to make contributions this fall.

Back in Valdosta, head coach Rance Gillespie has been working this summer looking for go to targets in his receiving game.

The Wildcats passing attack got a boost with a second place finish at the Southeastern seven on seven tournament last week.

Coach Gillespie though says the loss of Mitchell and Rome is being felt beyond the scoreboard.

Rance Gillespie said. "You go in and step in the huddle. Everybody has confidence that one of those two guys is going to make a play for you and keep you in the game. Now you turn around and those two guys are gone. Who is going to be this year? Who is going to step up and who is going to make that play to try to give us that spark."

Valdosta High opens the season at home on August 26th against Brooks County.
