In an outstanding, perfect regular 10-0 Region Championship season for Trion Football, Toby Maddux’s performance has been nothing short of exceptional. His impact on the field has been marked by remarkable stats that showcase his immense talent and contribution to the team’s success.
Friday night in the Elite Eight game against Elbert County, Maddux left it all on the field. Playing banged up, he had 313 rushing yards and five touchdowns.
