The first and second 7-AAA All-Region teams have been named, and Cedartown is not short on representatives.
A trio of Bulldogs were elected to the first team squad: Quarterback Zach Chubb, Running back Nick Chubb, and Defensive End Marquis Thomas.
Zach Chubb, a senior for Cedartown, led the bulldog’s offensive attack as a dual-threat quarterback. Chubb had 1,281 yards rushing with eleven touchdowns on the ground. He also had 261 yards through the air and four passing touchdowns.
Sophomore running back Nick Chubb led the team in rushing with 1,579 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also had four receptions for 52 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Marquis Thomas had over 50 tackles on the year, 11 tackles for loss, and 5.5 sacks on the season. Thomas was also a key offensive contributor at wide receiver.
Taylor McGriff, Cody Mesta, and Delandrian Battle were also named to the 7-AAA All Region second team.
Cedartown Head Coach Scott Hendrix was honored as Region 7-AAA’s Coach of the Year award.
In his second season, the Dawgs doubled their win total and finished second in the sub-region, ending the year with a trip to the playoffs.
Hendrix has now won 12 games in his first two seasons, more than the total games won in the previous four, before his arrival.
No doubt the head coach has already left his mark on the program, and it is clear to see that the future is bright for Cedartown football.
