Shirreffs listed as POY Nominee



Senior quarterback Bryant Shirreffs attempts to secure the football as a defender from Calhoun tries to strip it away.

Georgia High School Football Daily has quarterback Bryant Shirreffs of Jefferson High School ranked eighth in its Player of the Year watch. Shirreffs helped the Dragons achieve the 2AA state title in Jefferson’s Dec. 15 defeat of Calhoun High School in the Georgia Dome.

Jefferson went 14-1 on the year and Shirreffs may have run out of room on his stat sheet as he finished the season with 2,369 passing yards and a whopping 1,372 yards on the ground.

Shirreffs threw for 18 touchdowns and rushed for 20 of his own. The fiery and intelligent QB has shown many, including Calhoun High School, that he has all the skills necessary to lead his team.

His ability to scramble in the pocket and achieve yards after the hit has made Shirreffs an exciting athlete to watch.

Deshaun Watson of Gainesville, Alvin Kamara of Norcross High School, Travis Custisof Lovejoy, Taylor Lamb of Calhoun and Vonn Bell of Ridgeland High School round out the top five.
