If South Forsyth senior Tyler LaFlamme had any reservations about switching over full-time to offense this season, he didn’t show it. After all, the Forsyth County News’ 2014 Offensive Player of the Year played most of his first two seasons at safety, his preferred spot—“You get to hit people,” he said—but LaFlamme put the state of Georgia on alert with a torrid first five games as the War Eagles’ workhorse running back. If 160 yards at Centennial, 204 at Habersham Central and 125 against North Forsyth (and more than 800 last season as Isaiah Williams’ backup) weren’t enough, LaFlamme’s 435-yard, five-touchdown romp through Chattahoochee’s defense in late September stamped the 5-foot-11, 195-pound bowling ball atop the Class AAAAAA rushing leaderboard, where he would stay for much of the season.
