WARNER ROBINS, GA -- Houston County opponents rejoiced the day Jake Fromm headed to Athens.

Before Georgia's true-freshman quarterback became a household name in college football, Fromm set multiple records at HOCO and tormented defensive coordinators for four years.

Fromm wrapped up his high school career with a region championship and just 260 yards shy of Deshaun Watson's state passing record. Fromm has easily carried that success and swagger to the SEC.

After replacing an injured Jacob Eason early in Georgia's season opener, Fromm has made the most of his opportunity leading #5 Georgia to a 5-0 record. While his numbers aren't gawdy, Fromm has performed relatively better through the first five games of his career than Eason.

While Eason owns the edge in passing yards (991), Fromm has been the more efficient quarterback possessing a 59.5 completion percentage while finding the end zone 10 times and tossing only two interceptions.

Georgia heads to Vanderbilt Saturday with Fromm expected to make his fifth straight start.

While a large portion of the Middle Georgia football fan base roots on Fromm leading the red and black, they get the opportunity to watch another Fromm dominate the high school gridiron.

Warner Robins junior quarterback Dylan Fromm has the Demons out of the gate at 6-0 currently ranked fourth in the state. After transferring from Houston County to Warner Robins, Fromm has picked up Mike Chastain's offense quickly.

The Demons Head Coach formerly served as Houston County's offensive coordinator where older brother Jake served as his quarterback. Comparing both quarterback's junior seasons, Jake averaged more passing yards per game but Dylan holds the advantage in completion percentage and touchdown passes per game.

The Demons open region play at Thomas County Central this Friday.

In 2017, Jake, Dylan and twin Tyler have combined for 32 touchdowns.
