Canes place four on AJC's preseason all-state roster
Cartersville had the most players of any Class 4A school selected to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Preseason All-State team.
Sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence, senior tight end Miller Forristall, senior wide receiver Terrius Callahan and senior linebacker Tyler Reed were all selected to the Class AAAA squad.
Also of note, Gilmer running back Russell Cochran and Southeast Whitfield offensive lineman Noah Ramsey also made the team. Both of those players are also in Region 7-AAAA.
Lawrence and Reed were each named to the AJC and Associated Press all-state first teams in 2014. Callahan was a first-team AP all-state selection and a fourth-team AJC all-state choice in 2014. The four Preseason All-State members and the rest of the Hurricanes travel to Woodland Friday for a preseason scrimmage against the Wildcats. Kickoff for the scrimmage is set for 7:30pm.
The Purple Hurricanes open the regular season August 28 at Cass.
