The Score 44 is a fluid list that aims to honor the best forty-four seniors in Georgia high school football on a week-to-week basis. These players are some of the most highly-recruited players in the state as well as some of the best players that may not get to play at the next level. A player can play his way onto the list with an outstanding performance, and if a player is injured, suspended or failing to live up to expectations, other players can take his spot on the list. If a player did not make list this week, he has plenty of time to play his way onto the list by the end of the year. The players are also not in any particular order. After the season, we will put the players in order in the Score Final 50.

Two players took advantage of injuries to play their way onto the latest Score 44 list as Stephens County running back Chaz Thornton returned to the list and Jalen Myrick of Savannah Christian made his debut. Thornton was on the list for several weeks at the start of the year and is back after rushing for 217 yards on 37 carries and two scores in his team's most recent game. Thornton has been a hoss this year, carrying the ball time and again for the Indians. Meanwhile, Myrick has helped right the Savannah Christian ship as the defending Class A champs look to be heating up as the playoffs approach. Myrick is headed to Minnesota next year as a cornerback, but the do-it-all athlete pulled in 111 receiving yards and three scores in Savannah Christian's win over Jenkins County. Chris Carson dropped off the list after missing Parkview's game against Central Gwinnett and Brett Sheehan had to leave Collins Hill's game against North Gwinnett with an injured right ankle.
