Just weeks ago, the Dawson County coaching staff had not even named a starting quarterback for this season. Now, it appears as though sophomore Zach Holtzclaw can hold that title for this year and the years to come.

In a big win for the #8-ranked Tigers, Holtzclaw threw for 188 yards and a pair of TDs, and added 22 yards rushing for good measure. He completed 9-of-15 passes (60%) and had his second-best QB rating of the season (143.8). In 2019, he has thrown for 977 yards with 10 TD against 3 interceptions. His completion percentage is 59%. While he seldom runs, he has 87 rushing yards to go with 1 TD.

Gunner Stockton takes the honors for the second straight week, and 7th time overall in his still-young career. In what marked his second straight and fourth-ever 7 TD performance, Stockton was as good as always in a win over Banks County. The Wildcat sophomore threw for 354 yards and 4 TD, and added 86 rushing yards and 3 TD while coming out early in the 3rd quarter. He completed a career-high 26 passes on 33 attempts (79%), leading to a career-best 368 yards passing and his third 4-passing-TD game in a row. His QB rating was 153.8, his second-best ever. He also rushed for 84 yards and 3 TD, doing so on just 9 carries (9.3 yds/carry).

This season, Stockton has thrown for 1,611 yards and 20 TD against 3 interceptions. The sophomore 5-star recruit has completed 72% of his pass attempts, holding a QB rating of 137.4 for the #2-ranked Wildcats. Stockton also has 559 rushing yards on 64 carries (8.7/carry) with 10 more TDs. That brings his career numbers to 4,528 passing yards for 54 TD with 67% completion percentage, adding 1,268 rushing yards and another 27 scores. That’s a grand total of 5,796 yards and 81 TDs.
