HS Football Awards- Week 5

Wellborn senior running back Kevin Mixon is the Uncle Sam's Bar-B-Que Player of the Week. Mixon was the brightest star on a night filled with great performances. He had 250 all-purpose yards. As a running back, he rushed for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Mixon also added an 80 yard punt return for a score giving him three touchdowns in the Panthers 42-7 victory over Weaver. For his win, Mixon will pick up a gift certificate to Uncle Sam’s Bar-B-Que (good at either the Oxford or Rainbow City location). The Panthers step out of region to face 5A Moody this Friday night.

The KFC-Jackson Mortgage Company Team of the Week is Glencoe. The Yellow Jackets upset then-3rd ranked Piedmont 31-28 in a thriller at Wilson-Darnell Stadium. The victory kept them a perfect 4-0 on the season and the outright lead in the Class 3A Region 6 standings. On Wednesday night, the Jackets pick up all of the team of the week prizes including a meal from KFC, the Jackson Mortgage Company trophy and team of the week t-shirts.
