Player of the Week

Julie Parks, from Heritage Bank, and Head Football Coach Todd Hood presents Hunter Bracy with the Player of The Week Award based on his outstanding performance in the play-off game against Nashville Christian School this past Friday night, November 6th. Hunter had his best offensive effort of the year with 33 carries for 130 yards averaging 4 yards a carry. Hunter also had 7 tackles on the defensive side of the ball. The Cougars lost the first round match-up. Coach Hood declared “Hunter ran hard all night and was an inspiration for our team with his effort and determination. The loss ends the Cougars season, but next year will be another exciting season. Thanks everyone for your support.
