Last Friday, the Cedar Shoals Jaguars (3-0) received a visit from the Greenbrier Wolfpack (0-2) and sent them packing with a 58-26 at Waters-Wilkins Stadium.
Quarterback Jaylen Rusher threw for three touchdowns and rushed for one accumulating a total quarterback rating of 138.2, and sophomore Jerdavian Colbert rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown to lead the Jaguar offense.
Rusher has performed beyond expectations and has plenty to be excited about going forward.
“I have a lot of confidence. O-line is one of the best in Georgia. We have a good bit of experience so we know what we’re doing,” Rusher said.
The Jags will head into the bye week undefeated mainly due to an offense averaging 41.6 points per game and Rusher’s eight touchdown passes on the season.
While there are not many downsides to a team with a dynamic offense that features a sophomore running back and a defense that forced a fumble and came up with multiple interceptions against Greenbrier, Head Coach Leroy Ryals still believes that there’s plenty to improve upon.
“We’re just another step in the process of trying to get better every week,” Coach Ryals said. “Anytime you win by a large margin that’s always good. We’ll watch the tape and see what we need to improve.”
Cedar Shoals heads into a bye week before going on the road to play the Oconee County Warriors (2-1) where the defense will face senior quarterback Max Johnson, an LSU commit who already has eight passing touchdowns and over 1,000 passing yards on the season.
