This whole football thing for Central Gwinnett defensive end Francis Kallon is probably starting to be fun. Before he ever stepped onto a football field for an official game, the London, England native had multiple scholarship offers in hand and had pledged to Georgia Tech. That declaration has not stopped plenty of SEC coaches from stopping by coach Todd Wofford’s practices, though Kallon tells the AJC his word is his word. He will, however, be attending Alabama’s football camp this week where an offer to join Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide might be granted. It will be interesting to see if Paul Johnson pulls his offer to Kallon as he has done with other previously committed prospects who visit other schools. … The Warner Robins’ upset of Colquitt County (available on-demand at GPB.org/sports) may have been the upset of the year and Packers’ head coach Rush Propst told the Moultrie Observer that it was “one of the worst offensive days I’ve ever had.” Propst noted that there was a bust on every play in the Wayne Grandy article. Propst also promised to get “our better players in the game.” Running back Willie Woodyard had just six touches in the loss and Ty Smith was held without a touchdown. … Amanda Chambers of Parkview’s Lady Panther softball squad did a little bit of everything in the team’s 11-1 win over Newton. Chambers was 2-for-2 at the plate, stroking two doubles and driving in two runs. On the rubber she was better, striking out 12 batters to pick up her seventh win of the season. … The Walton cross country teams dominated the Warpath Invitational last Saturday. The boys were led by individual champion Brian Sullivan to finish ahead of second place Marist. The girls meanwhile featured individual winner Alexa Womack to take down Woodstock.
