Camden County has captured three GHSA state titles since Jeff Herron took over the program in 2000 and installed the run-based Wing-T formation. This year, however, Georgia high school fans may see No. 2 Camden County throw it a few more times per contest than in years past and that is because future Georgia Bulldog Brice Ramsey is under center in Herron's attack.

This past Saturday Ramsey threw it just eight times, but he registered 132 yards on six completions, including three touchdowns. Ramsey connected with J.J. Green on a 34-yard touchdown to put the game on ice in the second quarter. Ramsey would also show off his arm on a beautiful eight-yard touchdown toss and a 61-yard scoring connection.

"Brice certainly gives us the ability to take advantage of what people are doing in the passing game," said Herron after Saturday's 42-0 victory over previously ranked Peachtree Ridge. "When you're able to run the ball in the Wing T, it's certainly going to open up things in the passing game. We've got to take advantage of that. We've got some big-play capability and we've got to use that."

CREEKSIDE STANDOUT ...

Anyone headed out to Creekside to watch the junior Berry twins this season may also want to sneak a peek at 6-foot-5 senior receiver Chris Sanders-McCollum. Sanders-McCollum currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Auburn, Pittsburgh and Tulane according to 247sports and ESPN.com. He was a member of the 24 2Look4 list last December and played for the West team in the AT&T Junior Bowl last December. The versatile star is also a member of the track team, having competed in the high jump and the 110 meter hurdles in 2011 and a member of the basketball team. Creekside plays Langston Hughes this Friday and will host Westlake next week on Comcast.
