Rabun Grabs Seventh Consecutive Region Title as Stockton surpasses Fisher on All-Time List [VIDEO]

Seven is the number of perfection. Rabun County (9-1; 3-0 in 8-AA) throttled Union County 63-14 on the way to a seventh straight region championship. The win in Week 11 to close their regular season also made it seven straight wins overall and seven in a row over their arch-rivals.

Gunner Stockton accounted for 8 TDs on the evening, and Adriel Clark found pay dirt 4 times. Stockton’s big night saw him tie and pass former Wildcats’ great Bailey Fisher for the most passing TDs in school history, also placing him alone in 6th place in state history. While Union (3-5; 1-2) held the Cats to only a 7-0 game after one quarter, #1-ranked Rabun went off for 4 TDs in the second to head into the break up 35-0.

With a running clock in the second half, Rabun went up 49-0 before Union got on the board with a kickoff return for a TD by Clayton Walker. QB Kaston Hemphill later threw a 40-yd TD pass to Keyton Chitwood, but aside from that, it was all Rabun.

Stockton scored on a 39-yd TD run in the first, then threw a 29-yd and 4-yd TD passes to Clark in the second quarter to push the lead up to 21-0. Stockton ran one in from 22 yards later in the quarter, and in the third he again found Clark with a sensational pass and catch from 39 ticks out for the 35-0 lead.

Lang Windham scored a 37-yd TD to open the second half scoring, and added a 1-yd TD catch from Stockton just before the end of the third. In the fourth, Stockton’s 12-yd TD pass to Clark gave him the edge over Fisher all-time in passing TD. It was Clark’s fourth TD of the night, as he entered as the state’s leading receiver in yards and TDs. Stockton found Tate Ramey for a 5-yd strike to cap the scoring.

Stockton finished with 380 passing yards and 6 TD, and 120 rushing yards with 2 TD. Windham had 93 rushing yards, while Clark finished with 131 yards on 8 catches and 4 TD. Sutton Jones had 120 receiving yards, while Ramey had 79. Rabun County came in with the top scoring offense in the state in Class 2A, and for a third straight game put up more than 60 points and saw all but one drive end in a TD (a fumble). The offense had 593 yards, and Stockton accounted for 500. Meanwhile, the defense allowed just 131 yards and 6 first downs to Union.
