Under the Radar

We will post some players between now and the beginning of the ’22 Season that are flying under the radar locally.

Brody Cooper ’23 QB (Dade County Wolverines) The rising Senior took over last year as the starting QB, replacing the 7AA OPOY. Exceeded expectations throwing for over 1300 yds with a 105 QBR and added 300 on the ground with 16 total TDs. HUDL

Peyton Nikolopoulus 6’0 230 G/C (Cedartown Bulldogs): You don’t have a team with 3 1000yd rushers and not have a nasty Guard that likes to pull and mix it up. Lead the team in knockdowns in ’21 and was named 1st Team All Region. HUDL

Fredi Gbadie 5’11 190 RB (Cass Colonels): Everyone knows about the QB/WR combo at Cass but this is the guy when you need to mix it up. 2nd Team All Region RB last season, in a Region that features some D1 backs. Recently squatted 500. HUDL

Kace Adams 6’0 180 FS/OLB (Cartersville Purple Hurricanes): Recently put up an 11.22 100m in his 1st year running track. Great nose for the football. Multiple interceptions last year with a couple of Pic 6’s. Sports a 4.29 GPA. HUDL

Cam Curtis 6’0 185 WR/DB (Calhoun Yellow Jackets): Sure handed receiver that doesn’t mind throwing a block or catching the ball across the middle. Already on a few radars. HUDL

Doc Pearson 6’2 226 LB/DE (Bremen Blue Devils) Every once in a while I come across a guy who I haven’t heard much about but I see his film and I’m like Wow. This is one of those guys. PC 300+ with a 3.58 GPA. HUDL

Bhrett Wiggins 6’3 255 OL/DL (Bowdon Red Devils): Weight lifting State Title winner. Recent visit to the Air Force Academy for Junior Day. HUDL

Ryland Steen 6’1 205 RB/LB (Armuchee Indians): Kind of player coaches love. 2nd Team All Region LB and 1st team All Area as a Sophomore. Athletic genes: Grandfather played football and basketball at West Point. Look for him to play a big role on both sides of the ball in ’22.

#44 Ryland Steen
