Football[edit]

On January 30, 2008, Rush Propst was named head coach at Colquitt County High School. University of South Alabama head coach Joey Jones interviewed Propst to fill the vacant position as the offensive coordinator. After community uproar over the interview, Propst decided to stay at Colquitt County.

In just his second year of coaching at Colquitt County High School, Propst took a team that had finished 2-8 in 2007 to the state semifinals in 2009. This record is comparable to the 1994 Class B Georgia State Championship that Colquitt County High School won. In the 2015 season, Colquitt County had an undefeated 30-0 record and won the Georgia State High School Football Championship at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia.[1]

On June 16, 2016, Propst was suspended for one year for head-butting a player during the 2015 playoffs.[2] In July 2016, the appealed suspension was reduced to a reprimand. [3] Colquitt started the 2016 season by losing its first four games.
