For the second week in a row, Banks County fans came up big in the Player of the Week voting, helping give senior Jacob Lehotsky credit for his big night in a win over Social Circle.
After 15,320 votes, Lehotsky had edged Dawson County’s Zac Baloga for the Fan Vote Player of the Week honors. Lehotsky recorded 5,029 votes to Baloga’s 4,414.
Jacob Lehotsky had 96 rushing yards and two touchowns in a win over Social Circle. Consider the fact that Social Circle hadn’t allowed anyone to cross the plane of the end zone, or even in a field goal in their two prior games. That perfection ended with Banks putting up 32 on them.
The Leopard are now 2-2 on the season, and Lehotsky’s play made that possible. He also added three tackles in the win.
Austin Jones did it again. For the second week in a row, Jones is the BLITZ pick for Player of the Week. In just 24 minutes of play, he hauled in six catches from Gunner Stockton for 174 yards and three touchdowns. The 42-7 lead at the half for the Wildcats meant Jones, Stockton and the rest of the starters sat the second half.
Jones still managed to also collect four tackles and one for loss in Rabun’s third straight win. Here are Jones’ numbers to date for 2018 and his career:
2018: 17 rec, 326 yds, 3 TD | 3 rush, 23 yds | 8 punt ret, 147 yds, TD (496 All-Purpose)
26 TKL, 3 TFL, INT, 4 Pass Def, 1 Forced Fumble
CAREER: 98 rec, 1,690 yds, 16 TD | 14 rush, 72 yds, TD | 49 KR yds, 735 PR yds, 74 INT yds
**2,620 All-Purpose Yds, 23 Total TD (16 Rec, 5 Punt Ret, 1 Int Ret, 1 Rush)
275 TKL, 14 TFL, 10 INT, 13 Pass Def, 3 Fum Rec, 3 Forced Fum
Colby Clark was sensational in a Jefferson win over Gainesville. The RPO quarterback is a true dual threat, and proved how lethal that combo is against the Red Elephants.
Clark lifted the Dragons to victory with 69 pass yards on 3-of-6 passing (50%) with a TD. He also led the ground attack with 153 rushing yards on 17 carries, scoring three times. His average carry went for 9.0 yards.
Oh, and he had seven tackles and one for loss in the win as well.
2018: 16/46 passing (35%), 341 yds, 4 TD, 1 INT | 61 carries, 395 yds, 8 TD (6.5 YPC)
