Former Warner Robins Head Coach Mike Chastain has coached some pretty good quarterbacks. (At least one by the name of Fromm comes to mind.)
Apparently he’s found another good one at Jones County in Hunter Costlow.
Costlow, a 5-9, 212-pound senior quarterback, threw six touchdown passes to help lead Jones County to a 56-33 win over Northside Friday night at Jones County.
Andrew Carner accounted for the Greyhounds’ scoring early. He scored on a 43-yard run, and with Evan West’s point after, made it 7-0.
The Eagles tied it on Mason Ford’s six yard run and Adam Lemond’s point after.
Zikyhyree Hill gave Northside its first – and last – lead with a two yard run. That also closed out the first quarter.
Carner tied it and Costlow began to take over from there. First, he connected with Deon Richardson on a 95-yard touchdown play. Then, following an Eagle fumble on the nine, he found John Walton. That made it 28-14.
Northside, on an 80-yard run by quarterback Mason Ford, cut it to 28-20.
Costlow and Maleek Wooten pushed it to 35-20. That’s where it stood at the half.
Costlow and Wooten connected to start the third and make it 42-20.
Hill, on a five-yard run and a 70-yard Northside drive, made it 42-27.
The Eagles punted twice and Jones County once before the latter scored again. You guessed it. Costlow. This time it was on a 52-yard pass to Jontavis Robertson. That made it 56-27 and ended the third.
Both finally found their defenses – two punts by each – before Lemond went 52-yards for a score on a botched punt.
The loss dropped the Eagles, losing for the second-straight year to the Greyhounds, to 1-2. Jones County in turn improved to 3-0.
