Walter Batey, West Creek High School (3-2 record) –The senior wide receiver and defensive back had five catches for 71 yards and 2 touchdowns on offense, and 12 Tackles, two tackles for loss, a blocked punt and a blocked extra point on Friday night to help West Creek beat Portland, 51-50. “Walter does not come off the football field; he is one of our fastest and strongest players on the team. He can make plays on offense, defense and special teams,” his coach James Figueroa said.
Trelon Gadson, Kenwood High School (2-3 record) –The senior running back had 14 rushes for 197 yards and two touchdowns, and added two catches for 40 yards in the Knights’ 30-17 win over Northwest on Friday. “Trelon is a high character young man, a senior leader, a tremendous two way player, and will do anything for the team,” his coach Les Greer said.
Willie Reynolds, Stewart County High School (4-1 record) –The senior running back had 98 yards rushing with two touchdowns and an 18-yard reception in the Rebels’ win over Harpeth, 40-6. He also had five tackles from his “monster back” position on defense. “Willie is a ultimate team player. He does everything that you ask and never questions you even if you have him doing the job that gets no attention. This is a guy that is really going to hurt not having in the future but we are going to enjoy it while he is here,” his coach Chanz Swartz says.
Jordan Kitchen, Rossview High School (3-2 record) –The sophomore linebacker had 13 tackles, including two sacks, a forced fumble and fumble recovery in the Hawks win over Station Camp. “This sophomore had a stand out game for the Hawks. He helped shut down the run game against Station Camp and had two important sacks to stop drives,” his coach Todd Hood said.
Price Warfield, Clarksville High School (2-3 record) –The senior defensive back had 10 total tackles, seven solo and one TFL and two batted down passes. “Price really kept us in the game up until about the third quarter when Henry eventually pulled away,” his coach Issac Shelby said.
