Terry Godwin and Mitch Mathes helped the West squad take care of business on Tuesday in an all-star game featuring many of the top junior football players in the state.


The Georgia Junior Bowl was played at Grady Stadium in Atlanta, and the West all-star team overwhelmed the East squad 38-7.


Godwin, who led the Callaway Cavaliers to the Class AAA semifinals last season, had a big day as a wide receiver with a team-high four catches for 86 yards.


Mathes is a standout offensive lineman for the Troup Tigers, and he and the other linemen helped the West team accumulate nearly 500 yards of offense.


The West surged to a 24-7 lead at the half, and it outscored the East 14-0 in the second half.


Godwin has had a sensational first three years at Callaway, and he enjoyed an exceptional junior season.


Godwin was a play-maker as a wide receiver, a defensive back, and a kick returner.


In the playoffs, Godwin scored touchdowns on defense and special teams, and he had a long catch that set up a touchdown against Buford in the semifinals.


In the days leading up to the all-star game, West coach Rayvan Teague offered a glowing assessment of Godwin, who has received offers from numerous big-time programs, including Georgia and Auburn.


“He’s a game-changer,” said Teague, the head coach at Carrollton. “There’s no doubt about it. You can just see everything he does, the way he moves, his speed, his hands. He’s just a phenomenal player.”


Mathes, meanwhile, has been a starter at Troup since his freshman season, and he has established himself as a big-time recruit.


Mathes and Godwin were both first-team selections on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution all-state team.


Two other local players, Callaway quarterback Tez Parks and Troup running back Daryl Dunlap, will be playing in the Georgia-Florida all-star game.


That game will be played on Saturday in Palm Beach, Fla., and kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
