Burke County’s Don­quell Green doesn’t have the intimidating size of a bear, but the quarterback’s athleticism makes him plenty scary.

Burke County Donquell Green's physical power and athleticism make the Bears quarterback a dangerous player.

Green is physically powerful, which makes him perhaps the most dangerous area player this year. As a junior, he rushed for more than 1,800 yards and passed for almost 1,400 yards.

His speed puts opponents on notice, but there’s plenty of fight and strength in him, too.

“He’s just so hard to get on the ground,” Bears offensive coordinator Sean Tiernan said. “He’s a small kid, stature-wise, but surprisingly, he’s very difficult to tackle.”

When Green thinks his den is getting threatened, he will strike quickly.

As a sophomore, Green answered a Gainesville touchdown by returning the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for a score in an eventual state semifinal win.

“I enjoy that,” Green said about his ability to score in a hurry. “We have been known as game changers – we change the game real quick. It helps us out a lot. I really enjoy being a part of that.”
