Kamryn Perry, Marietta, WR, SR
Kam had a spectacular game in the Blue Devils 38-21 second round loss at Milton on last week's GPB's Football Fridays In Georgia game of the week. Perry had 7 catches for 148 yards and scored on TD passes of 65 and 29 yards from QB and Southern commit Tyler Hughes. Perry finished the season with a phenomenal 65 receptions for 1152 yards and 19 touchdowns and he did that in just 12 games! Despite those amazing stats, the 5-9, 175-pound Perry has just one offer and that’s from Morehouse who just recently stepped up to the plate. So, congratulations to the Maroon Tigers but let's give Kam some options and Make That Kid Another Offer!
Ellis Reed, Marietta, LB, SR
The 6-0, 210 LBS linebacker kind of gets lost in the shadow of 4-star LB Daniel Martin and senior MLB Carlos Cervantes but Reed has had a great season and Coach Richard Morgan says someone should make him an offer. Reed was all over the field in our Football Friday In Georgia Game of the Week. He had an incredible 19 tackles against the high-powered Eagles offense. Reed recorded 134 tackles this season with 100 solo stops, 8 TFL and 4 QB sacks, averaging over 11 tackles per game. Despite those gaudy numbers, Reed does not have an offer!
