Gaines passes coach with picks

SNELLVILLE -- Back in his day, Mickey Conn was a pretty decent defensive back.The Grayson head coach was good enough to earn a walk-on spot, then some legitimate playing time at his favorite college, Alabama. He even won a national title in 1992.Conn was an undersized defensive back playing in the big time. That's why he can appreciate more than anyone what his own free safety, Grayson senior Kori Gaines, does on the football field.Gaines intercepted two more passes Friday night in the Rams' 22-12 win over rival Brookwood, boosting his season total to eight in just seven games. The picks also pushed him past his coach -- Conn's best season as a South Gwinnett player was seven.
