Ellingham and Stockton top FGN Week 7 top performer list

Week 7 brought the area some interesting region contests, massive blowouts and big numbers. 

Flowery Branch’s Jaizen Ellingham provided some of those big numbers and highlights in the Falcons Region 7-4A opener against White County. The junior running back was tough to tackle for Warriors, rushing 35 times for 302 yards and four touchdowns in the 45-20 win. Ellingham's rushing stats led the area. 

Rabun’s Gunner Stockton was just as impressive. The state’s No. 1 quarterback in his class threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns and added another 86 yards rushing and three more scores in a win over Banks County on Friday. Stockton’s performance was tops for a quarterback in the area.
