Thornton Named Honorable Mention All-State By AJC

Stephens County senior running back Chaz Thornton picks up another honor.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution named Thornton as an honorable mention all-state football player in AAAA recently.

Thornton finished the season with more than 1,500 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns. For his career, he had more than 6,000 career rushing yards and passed University of Georgia Heisman Trophy-winning running back Herschel Walker on the state rushing list with one of the top 15 career rushing totals in state history.

From Region 8-AAAA, one player, Monroe Area running back Kwan Brooks made first-team all-state, according to the AJC.

Two others, Monroe Area quarterback Stanton Truitt, and Eastside defensive lineman Antonius Sims were also named AJC honorable mention all-state.
