Three former Georgia high school players got ACC player-of-the-week accolades on Tuesday. The running back of the week was Virginia's Jordan Ellis, who rushed for 146 yards in a 42-13 victory over Richmond. A co-offensive lineman of the week was Clemson's Tremayne Anchrum, who graded at 94 percent in a 48-7 victory over Furman. The receiver of the week was N.C. State's Jakobi Meyers, who had 14 receptions for 141 yards in a 24-13 victory over James Madison. For which Georgia high school teams did Ellis, Anchrum and Meyers play? Hint: They are from Gwinnett, Cobb and DeKalb counties. (Answer Thursday)
Answer to Tuesday's question: The two pairs of coaches from the list that never met as 250-game winners in Georgia are Robert Davis-Conrad Nix and Dwight Hochstetler-Larry Campbell. Nix had won more than 250 games when he faced Davis for the last time in 2007 (Northside of Warner Robins vs. Westside of Macon), but only 230 of Nix's victories had been won in Georgia at the time. He won 58 games in Alabama. Hochstetler won 345 games, but he had won only 239 when he faced Campbell for the last time in 2001 (Bowdon vs. Lincoln County). The only four pairs of coaches who have faced each other after both had 250 Georgia victories are Graham Hixon of Woodward Academy and Wayman Creel of Westminster (1985, 1986, 1987); Robert Davis of Westside and T. McFerrin of South Gwinnett (2003), Nick Hyder of Valdosta and Billy Henderson of Clarke Central (1992) and Alan Chadwick of Marist and Buck Godfrey of Southwest DeKalb (2010, 2011).
