Wilson was voted Snapper of the Year ahead of Tift County’s Ike Powell, South Forsyth’s Davis Winkie and Bremen’s Zach Wade.
“It’s definitely an honor,” said Wilson, who will continue playing football at Tennessee next year. “All of the work we put into it. It’s nice to come out and get an award. We don’t get acknowledged that much so it’s nice to feel that acknowledgement.”
Teammate and fellow senior Thomas O’Leary was nominated for the Cedric Oglesby Award (Kicker of the Year) but the decision went in favor of Marietta’s Ian Shannon.
“Casey Wilson and Thomas O’Leary have been good over the years,” Cedric Oglesby said. “From the ninth grade to the 12th grade they have been performing at a high level. I’m a DeKalb county guy and being able to have them come was real special.”
“I like how it is on me,” Wilson said. “I get that one chance and it’s nice to show that you can execute with that one attempt you get.”
The Punter of the Year award went to Carrollton’s Tyler Newsome over Milton’s Matt Moskowitz and Marion County’s AJ Wells. Marist’s Matt Hill and Joey Gogol were also members of the first and second teams, respectively.
“Georgia has great specialists,” Wilson said. “I’m friends with pretty much everyone here and they are all great. I definitely think any of these people could’ve one an award. We have a good class coming out.”
“To see people from all different walks of life and schools come together and represent Georgia like this is a big deal,” Oglesby said. “Georgia has very talented kickers, punters and snappers.”
