Embry Peeples

Embry Peeples came to Dr. Phillips in his junior year and wasted no time etching his name into the DP record book.  He rushed for over 100 yards a game a school-record seven times in his junior season to lead the Panthers to a 9-3 record and a District Championship.  After rushing for 223 yards against Edgewater in the first game of the 2007 season, Peeples was saddled with a nagging foot injury that limited his production the rest of the season but he signed a football scholarship with Georgia Tech in February of 2008.
