The Leaderboard: Woodford, Morris, Gibson sit at No. 1 through Week 7

Nick Woodford of Northeast in Macon and Tate Morris of McIntosh are the GHSA’s new leaders in rushing and passing, respectively.

Woodford, a well-built sophomore at 5 feet, 8 inches and 210 pounds, has rushed for more than 225 yards in each of the past four games, all victories after Northeast started 0-2. He went for 245 yards last week in a 47-0 victory over Central of Macon. He’s run for 1,317 yards on the season, an average of 219.5 per game.

Woodford would have more yards except that a 14-12 opening loss to Mary Persons was stopped six plays into the second half because of rain and lightning and never completed. He settled for 109 yards that night.

Two other running backs took the lead in their classifications.

Dalton’s Tyson Greenwade rushed for 375 yards last week in a 52-45 victory over Hiram. That put him at 1,215, the most in Class 5A. Greenwade missed the Cedartown game Sept. 23, so his totals are from five games. Dalton is 3-3.

Meadowcreek’s Jordan Louie, the new 7A leader, is making a name for himself in Georgia after playing his junior season in Alabama. The 6-1, 210-pound running back rushed for 226 yards on 11 carries in a 67-41 loss to North Gwinnett last week. He’s rushed for 1,086 yards for a 4-2 team and also has 364 receiving yards. Louie is committed to West Virginia.

The new passing leader is Morris, who is on pace for 3,000 yards passing and 1,000 rushing in the regular season. He tacked on 295 yards passing in a 35-34 victory over Heard County last week and stands at 1,860 for the season for a 3-3 team.

Rabun County’s Jaden Gibson remains the leader in receiving yards with 958. Gibson was the state’s 2021 leader with 1,878 and is 345 yards short of Stan Rome’s career record of 4,477 set in 1973.
