Triple Threats

Bulldogs facing three Tech commits in No. 1 Trojans’ wing-T offense

THOMASVILLE — Leroy Ryals is very much aware of Lamar County’s three-headed monster.

Ryals, Thomasville’s first-year head coach, has talked with friend and Lamar County’s second-year head coach Franklin Stephens over the course of the season about Lance and Lawrence Austin and Quay Searcy, the Trojans’ talented trio, all of whom are committed to play at Georgia Tech.

Now, though, Ryals and his Bulldogs are faced with having to slow the three down as Thomasville travels to No. 1 Lamar County in the second round of the Class AA playoffs Friday at 7:30 p.m.

“They may have, me and coach Stephens, we’re friends and we talk a couple times a week at least, and I was telling him that those three guys they’ve got may be some of the best athletes in the state of Georgia, regardless of classification,” Ryals said. “They’re pretty explosive.”

Lance Austin, a 5-foot-10 and 180-pound athlete, directs the Trojans’ wing-T offense and is a weapon running it or throwing it. Completing 60 percent of his 50 passes, Austin has passed for 706 yards and nine touchdowns to just one interception. He has also rushed for 779 yards and 17 touchdowns on 92 carries.
