Nick Chubb, Cedartown

By Todd Holcomb - GHSF Daily

Position: Running back

Height, weight: 5-11, 217

Class: Senior

College choices: Committed to Georgia

2012 season wrap-up: Chubb rushed for 2,721 yards and 38 touchdowns on 312 carries (8.7 yards per carry). He gained more yards in 10 games than any back in state history. His team finished 6-4 and failed to make the state playoffs. Chubb, the Class AAAA offensive player of the year, ran for more than 330 yards in five of 10 games and accounted for nearly 80 percent of his team’s yards gained.

School’s first Super 11 since: Ken Veal in 1997

What’s interesting: Because of Cedartown’s alleged weak schedule, college scouts didn’t take Chubb’s Nintendo-like statistics seriously until he dominated practices in December’s RisingSeniors.com all-star game for the state’s top juniors. In July, Chubb earned five-star status after he finished third out of 161 elite prospects in the SPARQ athletic competition at Nike headquarters.
