Deshaun Watson and Gainesville (Ga.) High's Red Elephants keep on rolling, while fellow Clemson commitments Wayne Gallman and Jayron Kearse saw their high school careers come to an end with playoff losses last Friday.

Watson was on fire in Gainesville's 61-42 victory over Kell, as he led his team on a 40-7 second-half rampage that wiped out a two touchdown halftime deficit.

Watson accounted for eight of Gainesville's nine touchdowns in the game. He completed 25 of 35 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed 28 times for 163 yards and five touchdowns.

Watson has now accounted for 61 touchdowns this season.

Gainesville (9-3), which moved up a classification after winning the Georgia state 3-A title a year ago, will next play at Harris County on Friday.

In South Fort Myers' Florida playoff game against area rival Naples, Kearse played safety, quarterback and wide receiver in the Wolf Pack's 42-21 loss. Kearse had seven carries for 41 yards and two receptions for 52 yards.

Gallman was Grayson High's leading rusher with 43 yards in a 28-10 upset loss to North Gwinnett.

The season also came to an end for 2014 running back commitment Jae'lon Oglesby, as Daniel High dropped a 20-14 decision to Union County.

Still alive in their state playoff brackets are Dalvin Cook, Demarcus Robinson and Jordan Leggett.

Cook, like Oglesby a 2014 running back commitment, had 10 carries for 123 yards and scored three touchdowns in Miami Central's 34-7 victory over Northwestern. The defending state champs will play Palm Bay this week.

Robinson snared six passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in Peach County (Ga.) High's 43-15 victory over Pierce County. Peach County will next go against North Hall.

Leggett caught one pass in Navarre (Fla.) High's 20-12 win over Milton. Next up in the playoffs is Lake City.
