On January 30, 2008, Rush Propst was named head coach at Colquitt County High School. University of South Alabama head coach Joey Jones interviewed Propst to fill the vacant position as the offensive coordinator. After community uproar over the interview, Propst decided to stay at Colquitt County.

In just his second year of coaching at Colquitt County High School, Propst took a team that had finished 2–8 in 2007 to the state semifinals in 2009. In 2014 and 2015, Colquitt County had undefeated 15-0 records and won the Georgia State High School Football Championship at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta in both seasons.[5]

The 2015 team won a High School Football National Championship when High School Football America named the Packers national champs.[6]

On June 16, 2016, Propst was suspended for one year for head-butting a player during the 2015 playoffs.[7] In July 2016, the appealed suspension was reduced to a reprimand.[8] Colquitt started the 2016 season by losing its first four games.
