Talk about starting the season off with a bang. Calhoun, Ga., two-star quarterback Cody Worley only got to play for one quarter of his team's first game of the season and his performance was good enough to help his team roll to a 42-6 victory.
"I was six of nine for around 90 yards," Worley, who is 6-foot-1 and 209 pounds, said. "I had one touchdown pass and one touchdown run. We played hard and did really well. We won and that was the most important thing."
Worley and his teammates battle Rome (Ga.) Darlington this week and he's already focused in on defensive tackle Ryan McMahon, a Florida State commitment.
"He's a big guy that gets after it," Worley said. "But we're going to come out strong since it's our home opener."
And along the way Worley is hoping that he continues to improve his stock with the college coaches.
He still has one scholarship offer from Ball State, but he's getting some serious attention from both South Carolina and Vanderbilt. Worley said if the Gamecocks were to offer him, it might be tough to turn down.
"I would say a top two would be South Carolina and Vanderbilt, but if I got an offer from Steve Spurrier there would be no question for me," he said. "I don't know how you could turn down a shot to play for a guy like that. I talk to coach (Madre) Hill two or three times a week, and he told me that I'm in the top five on their board.
"He told me if things go well for me this fall, then I could be a Gamecock."
He could also be a Commodore.
"Coach (Ted) Cain stays in touch with me all the time," he said.
Duke, Georgia Tech, Maryland, North Carolina and Wake Forest are also making regular mail contact with Worley.
