In our weekly Fan Vote Soccer Player of the Week, it was White County’s entire backline that earned the honors after garnering exactly 700 votes of the 1,283 final tally. BLITZ pick Steven Bennett (Habersham) as a Player of the Week.
WHITE CO DEFENSIVE BACK LINE
The Lady Warriors are ranked seventh in Class 4A, which we believe is too low. White County has been on fire, going a perfect 7-0. The offense gets a lot of credit behind such players as Bella Ramey and McKinley Jones, and rightfully so. Goalkeeper Ansley Seabolt has also been recognized lately with a POW award. However, the defensive unit makes everyone’s job far easier.
The group consists of four underclassmen: sophomore Aubrey Dowdy and juniors Cassidy Campbell, Skylar Williams, and Hannah Gerrells. This foursome has been the staple for White County’s flawless start, and have shut down opposing offenses, allowing just three goals through seven matches.
Junior forward Steven Bennett has gotten off to a terrific start for the Habersham Raiders (3-2-2), and over the past four games has tallied 4 goals and 3 assists.
This is Bennett’s first Player of the Week award.
