Gainesville's Watson, Buford's Rogers lead list of area All-State picks

Clemson-bound stars earn premier awards for respective classifications

POSTED: December 28, 2013 5:37 p.m.

Their legendary high school careers may be over, but the accolades continue to roll in for Gainesville quarterback Deshaun Watson and Buford linebacker Korie Rogers.

Considered two of the state’s top prospects in the 2013 class, the future Clemson Tigers were both named the best players in their respective classifications by the Georgia Sportswriters Association on Saturday.

Watson, the state’s all-time leading passer, was named the Offensive Player of the Year in Class AAAAA, while Rogers was named the Defensive Player of the Year in Class AAA.

For Watson, the honor marks the third straight season he has been tabbed as one of the best players in the state.

After leading Gainesville to the state championship in 2012, Watson was named the All-Classification Player of the Year, an honor awarded this season to Griffin quarterback Jaquez Parks.

Following his sophomore season in 2011, Watson was named the Offensive Player of the Year in Class AAA. Watson guided the Big Red to the state semifinals each of the past three seasons.

“(Deshaun) is just a special kid, special player,” Gainesville coach Bruce Miller said. “I think he is very deserving of (the honor), with what he accomplished.”

Watson, who is currently in Florida to attend the Under Armour All-American game, became the first player to ever surpass the 10,000-yard passing mark in state history. He finished his career with 13,135 yards passing, and he is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job once he enrolls at Clemson in January.

The Gatorade Georgia Player of the Year, Watson threw for 3,775 yards with 47 touchdowns this season, while also rushing for 1,057 yards with 14 scores.

“Like I told somebody the other day, when (Deshaun) graduated, ‘There goes 17,000 (career) yards of offense walking out the door,’” Miller said. “It is just hard to believe one kid can amass that much offense in one high school career.”

For Rogers, this year marks the second straight season he has been labeled the best defensive player in Class AAA.

Both seasons, Rogers anchored a Buford defensive unit that was the cornerstone in helping the Wolves claim back-to-back state championships. He will enroll at Clemson in August.

“(Rogers) played great all year. For me as a head coach, it was just fun that the best player on my team was one of the best practice players,” Buford coach Jess Simpson said. “He is just a guy that I have a lot of respect for.

“He is certainly one of the best to ever play at Buford.”

Simpson was named the Class AAA Coach of the Year, after leading Buford to its sixth state championship since 2007, and third perfect season during that same span.

Several area players were named First-Team All-State. Those players include: Jay Gaudlock (WR, Gainesville); Xavier Harper (WR, Jackson County); Hunter Atkinson (TE, West Hall); Nick Polino (OL, Buford); Thomas Marchman (OL, North Hall); Matthew Bonadies (K, Buford); Donte Gordon (DL, Buford); Joshua Thomas (LB, Buford); Thomas Wilson (RET, Buford); Raleigh Beougher (WR, Riverside Military); Dalton Hall (P, Jefferson); Tony Patman (OL, Commerce).
