Carter McCown, Jacksonville's standout quarterback, has been named the American State Bank Player of the Week for Week 9, Tim Haugh, ASB General Manager of Consumer Finance, announced Tuesday.
McCown put up incredible numbers in Jacksonville's 59-55 loss to the Lindale Eagles on Friday.
McCown accounted for 617 yards of total offense and seven touchdowns. He passed for 360 yards and three TDs; and rushed for 257 yards and added four more scores on the ground. Others receiving votes this week were Athens running back Logan Fuller and Chapel Hill quarterback Andrew Black.
"Carter really took over the game offensively for us," Jacksonville coach Chris Taber said. "He's really a student of the game. He's a great team leader and one of the hardest workers I've ever coached. Carter is the kind of player that you can build a program around, not just for the type of kid he is, but because of his work ethic and the pride he takes on a daily basis."
Added Haugh, "McCown arguably put up the best single-game performance of the year for any player in this area, and there have been some great performances this year.
"Last time I saw numbers like that is when I was getting thumped by my son playing Madden 25 on XBOX. What an unbelievable performance."
Each weekly winner (weeks 0-10) of the American State Bank Player of the Week award automatically receives an invitation to the end of the year banquet to recognize the weekly winners. One of the 11 weekly winners will be chosen as the "American State Bank Player of the Year," where they will receive a $10,000 scholarship to the college or university of their choice.
