It does’t seem like this is the final time we will hear from future Georgia Bulldogs QB Brock Vandagriff‍. The quarterback’s performance in the game pushed him over 10,000 total passing yards for his career, and over 4,000 yards throwing in 2020 - an amazing accomplishment for a player who started his high school career covering kickoffs and playing receiver. 

Vandagriff, considered a consensus five-star signal caller, guided his Prince Ave Christian School Wolverines to a state championship Monday night in Atlanta with a 41-21 win. Georgia fans are hoping this isn’t his final big win in the city. 

The capital of the South, after all, is the capital of college football, too. It features SEC Championship Games and Peach Bowl CFP Semifinals in the next four years. How many times Vandagriff plays in those games... it is hard to see into the future. 

What’s less difficult to see is the potential Vandagriff possesses. He’s good for sure. 

And while potential is one thing - production is another. Vandagriff has been overwhelmingly productive in his time at Prince Ave. Heading into the state championship game Vandagriff had 23 games in his career where he tossed at least three touchdowns. 

He didn’t hvae to do that tonight. It was Vandagriff’s playmaking legs that kept Prince Ave in control the entire game. 

Up 13-7 late in the second quarter and facing a fourth and two from their own 38-yard line, Price Ave went for it. Vandagriff took the ball off right tackle for 33 yards. He had to dodge a coupe of defenders, but he got to the edge and exploded down the sideline. That play cemented the Wolverines’ advantage in the game for good. Three plays later, another another 10-yard run from the senior, Vandagriff threw a 19-yard strike to Logan Johnson in the end zone to make it 20-7. 

In the fourth quarter, Vandagriff scored from a yard out to push the lead to 34-21. The eight-play, 64-yard drive salted away the game for the Wolverines. Vandagriff ended the night going 18 of 25 for 262 yards and two touchdowns with a pick. He added another 76 yards rushing and a score. 

The game didn’t showcase what Vandagriff and company typically do on offense, which is a quick-strike side of the ball that scored with ease most of the year. Prince Ave under Vandagriff needed very little time on the clock to fly his offense up the field and score.

But Monday Vandagriff showed just what a danger he can be with his feet - in fact, that’s what makes his so special as a quarterback. And he spreads the ball around a lot - of Vandagriff’s first seven balls thrown on Monday five were to different receivers. 

You don’t know what to cover with him. Do you worry about him running, or do you worry about the receivers? That’s not to mention the running backs he will hand off to at UGA. 

Georgia has not had a quarterback with Vandagriff’s ability to run and throw since Quincy Carter
