Every Tuesday night through the season we’ll begin by handing out our weekly awards in local high school football. This season we’re happy to have Uncle Sam’s Bar-B-Que on board to sponsor the Player of the Week. That honor goes to Oxford wide receiver Jake Cook. The senior was virtually unstoppable last Thursday night against Southside. Cook registered 8 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns in Oxford’s 42-21 win over the Panthers. He will receive a gift certificate to Uncle Sam’s Bar-B-Que in Oxford. Meanwhile this Friday night Cook and the Jackets have another titanic matchup on the road against Class 7A Gadsden City.
The KFC-Jackson Mortgage Company Team of the Week is Ohatchee. The Indians went on the road and dominated Southeastern 37-0. The entire team and coaching staff will get a meal from our friends at KFC on Thursday night. They will also take home the Jackson Mortgage Company Trophy and the Team of the Week T-shirts.
Another addition this season is the F&M Bank East Alabama Power Poll as seen by our Pigskin Roundup host Jon Holder. The Power Poll is listed below.
1. Gadsden City
