Quarterbacks Flex In Week 11, Earn Weekly Honors

The Player of the Week Fan Vote notched 36,916 votes, with Towns County’s Mason Thomas (17,677) earning the lion’s share. He edged out Dawson’s Dakohta Sonnichsen (16,531 votes). BLITZ then named Gunner Stockton (Rabun) Co-POW.


Towns County QB Mason Thomas has had quite the journey. He started out at Banks County, then made the move to Cherokee Bluff, where he started last season for the Bears as QB. This year saw him move to Hiawassee and suit up for Towns County. Not many players can say they’ve gotten to play QB for three different school systems. But here he is, and playing his best football yet. The senior racked up 208 passing yards and a pair of TD in last Friday’s loss to Social Circle. He has had a solid season, throwing for 1,065 yards on the year.

It never gets old watching Gunner Stockton play football. He had yet ANOTHER 6 passing TD game, his third such game of the season and sixth of his career. He totaled 8 TD, passing for 6 and rushing for 2. He had 500 yards of offense against Union County in guiding the Cats to a seventh straight region championship, passing for 380 and rushing for 120. He completed a ridiculous 89% of his passes.

Here’s where he stands on the season and all-time. He’s passed for 2,365 yards and 38 TD so far, against just one interception. He’s completed 71% of his passes. He’s rushed for 1,046 yards and another 19 scores (tied for a career best), averaging over 7 yards per tote. That’s a total of 3,411 yards and 57 TDs on the season.

For his career, he has 8,755 passing yards (12th all-time), 115 TD (6th all-time) to go with 2,881 rushing yards and 55 TD on the ground. That brings his cumulative totals to 11,636 yards of offense and 170 TD. In the win over Union, Stockton surpassed former Rabun great Bailey Fisher in passing TD to move into 6th place all-time. This is Stockton’s 14th Player of the Week award of his insane career, and 4th this season.
