Here are the finalists for this week’s FOOTBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK!
Jalin Miller, Northeast High School—The senior wide receiver for the Eagles had four receptions for 108 yds and two TDs in Northeast’s 30-24 loss to Kenwood. “He has really stepped up this season. He has turned into a kid that didn’t say much to one of our better leaders by example. He has been a great surprise,” his coach Brandon Clark said.
Jamal Mull, Northwest High School—The senior offensive and defensive lineman was a key to the Vikings’ win over West Creek. “We ran behind this young man for 30 plays. He paved the way for 150 yards rushing, had four pancake blocks and was a dominant force on the left side. He also recorded four tackles and two sacks on the defensive side. Unbelievable performance from this young man,” his coach Neil Furnish said.
Quantae Hicks, Clarksville High School—The senior wide receiver had six catches for 100 yards and a TD in the Wildcats’ loss to Stewarts Creek. “He is our most explosive playmaker and he came up big in the fourth quarter when we needed it most,” his coach Issac Shelby said.
Jaylen Washington, Kenwood High School—The sophomore quarterback was 15-of-22 for 286 yards and two touchdowns passing, and added 18 yards on nine carries and a TD rushing in Kenwood’s 30-24 win over Northeast. “Jaylen is an offensive leader who gives us a steadying presence. He is the ultimate competitor…a true winner,” his coach Les Greer said.
Michael Bracken, Harpeth High School—The senior linebacker made 14 total tackles for Harpeth, who lost to Camden. “Michael is one of our player-elected team captains. He brings a joy to the field that is contagious and plays for his mother whom he lost three years ago,” his coach Doug Loope said.
