Burks Gets AJC Shoutout
Kennesaw State commit Chandler Burks received some nice praise in AJC’s Prep Zone. One thing that concerns me is his current amount of rushing yards (666).
Despite South Paulding’s setback against North Paulding last week, quarterback Chandler Burks is having a breakout season. He’s on pace to pass for 2,500 yards and rush for 1,250 in the regular season. Burks is flourishing in South Paulding’s new spread offense, which coach Ed Koester said Burks learned in one week while recovering from an appendectomy the first week of June. “Tremendous leader,” Koester said. “Knows what every position does on every play. Makes great decisions. Will always be the first to give everyone else credit.” His official numbers in South Paulding’s 5-1 start: 82-of-119 passing for 1,277 yards and 12 touchdowns; 666 yards rushing on 68 carries.
