Two Bulldogs named to all-region first team

THOMASVILLE — Two Thomasville seniors were rewarded with spots on the Region 1-AA coaches all-region team.

Linebacker Deon Sanders and tight end Colby Marsh were first-team selections by the region coaches.

Sanders finished as the Bulldogs’ fourth-leading tackler with 33.5 stops. He also collected four tackles for loss and one interception. Thomasville coach Richie Marsh couldn’t be happier for Sanders’ selection.

“He clearly worked himself into a position on our team where he was playing both sides of the ball. Several games, we didn’t have him, his shoulder went out and it really hurt when we didn’t have him,” Marsh said. “I can’t be more pleased with what Deon gave this program over his time here. I’m happy for him.”

Marsh, Richie’s son, snagged eight receptions for 115 yards.

“Colby ended up playing tight end, fullback, linebacker and outside linebacker. It was good that there was a spot to try to get him on that team,” Marsh said. “I’m going to miss him, that whole senior group.”

Thomasville’s second-team selections included senior center Randy Herndon, sophomore guard Allen Robinson, senior defensive lineman Jeffery Ross and senior defensive back Khalil Hill. Ross finished as the team’s second-leading tackler with 40.5. Ross also tallied nine tackles for loss. Hill was in on 22 tackles, one interception and a team-leading four pass-breakups. Region champion Brooks County was led by quarterback Malcom Parrish, the region’s player of the year. Brooks County coach Maurice Freeman was named coach of the year after guiding the Trojans to the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs and a 12-1 record.
