The Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed its Super 11 team on Friday, which is made up of the players it believes are the best in the state.
For the first time, a Callaway High player has made that team, and not surprisingly, it’s Terry Godwin.
Godwin has already received numerous honors, and he has made multiple all-state teams as a wide receiver and a defensive back.
Two weeks ago, staff members at the AJC came to Callaway High to take Godwin’s photo, and interview him for the story.
Godwin, who is heading into his senior season, is coming off a sensational junior season that ended with the Cavaliers losing in the Class AAA state semifinals to Buford.
Godwin had 24 catches for 585 yards with nine touchdowns, and as a defensive back, he had five interceptions, even though teams rarely threw in his direction.
In the playoffs last season, Godwin scored touchdowns on offense, defense, and on special teams.
Godwin, one of the state’s most highly-recruited players, has verbally committed to the University of Georgia.
Godwin will obviously be a big part of what the Cavaliers do this season.
“We have to get him as many touches as possible,” offensive coordinator Matt Napier said. “He’s special with the ball in his hands.”
Godwin has been starting since his freshman season, and he was offered a scholarship by Georgia during a seven-on-seven camp before his sophomore year.
Godwin is a multi-sport standout, and during the 2013-2014 school year, he was a part of region-championship teams in football, basketball and baseball.
The football and basketball teams both made it to the final four, and the baseball team advanced to the quarterfinals.
Callaway’s football team played Greenville in a preseason game on Friday, and it will open its season next week against LaGrange High.
