Player of the Week

Julie Parks, from Heritage Bank, and Head Football Coach Todd Hood presents Will Lankford with the Player of The Week Award based on his outstanding performance in the home game against Montgomery Central High School this past Friday night, September 11h. Will had his best overall performance of the year. Will was the leading tackler with 15 , one sack and a forced fumble on the night. He also graded 89% on the offensive side of the ball. The Cougars lost the 9/11 thriller 28 to 21 in a down to the wire match-up. Coach Hood declared “Will has played lights out on both sides of the ball this year and his play against Central was nothing short of great .” The Cougars will host McEwen in a region game this Friday, Sept 18th. Kick off is at 7:00 pm. This is our homecoming game and ceremonies start at 6:30. Thanks to everyone who supported our special 9/11 “Never Forget Night” last Friday night.
