GRIFFIN, Ga., Dec. 16 (UPI) -- A high school quarterback's home was ransacked while he played a state championship game, police in Griffin, Ga., confirmed Monday.

Jaquez Parks said after he led Griffin High School to a 56-35 victory over Carollton High School in Atlanta's Georgia Dome Saturday, a game in which he accounted for 574 yards and threw five touchdowns, he and his family returned home to find their house looted.

Police told WSB-TV, Atlanta, burglars stole televisions, an iPad, an Xbox game and cash, noting an ax was used to break into the house.

The Parks family said they believed the burglars took advantage of the championship game.

"I think I was targeted because they knew my whole family supports me. They knew the whole family was going to be there," Parks said.
