The record-breaking play came on a one-yard shovel pass for Rabun County. Stockton now has 162 career passing touchdowns for the Wildcats in his remarkable four-year career in northeast Georgia. Earlier this year, Stockton was responsible for seven touchdowns against Pace on a night where he piled up nearly 500 yards of total offense during the win. Stockton has been to committed to Georgia since January. He has said that his goal in 2021 is to lead Rabun County to the school’s first state title in football. 

Final Feelings: Why Dawg Post Thinks the Georgia Bulldogs Will Take Out the Florida Gators 

“As a runner, Stockton knows how to dissect defenses and can take off the second he sees an opening. He’s an excellent runner and moves well for someone at 220-pounds. He’s quicker than most linebackers at the next level and he’s tough to bring down by one defensive back by himself,” Dawg Post recruiting expert Matt DeBary said in describing Stockton’s ability to run the ball.

Meanwhile, Stockton is on pace to re-write the passing records in Georgia and should end his time at Rubun County with one of the best careers of any quarterback in state history. 

As a junior last fall, Stockton threw for 3,128 yards and 46 TDs. He also rushed 191 times for 1,581 yards and 26 touchdowns. Coming into the 2021 season, Stockton has thrown for 9,518 yards and 122 touchdowns while also rushing for 3,416 yards and 70 touchdowns.
