The votes poured in (19,912) from all over Habersham, as both the girls and boys top vote-getter were Hab Central soccer standouts. Alex Ramirez (7,117 votes) and Addie Penick (6,292) were the top overall vote-getters. Worth noting that Towns County’s Taylor Cornett (4,921) almost edged Penick for the honors. Unrelated to voting outcome, BLITZ chose star keeper Fallan Lacey (Dawson County) as a Co-Player of the Week.

ALEX RAMIREZ – FAN VOTE

Alex Ramirez has been a star between the pipes for the Raiders, who have stapled a state playoff appearance with a 7-2 mark in region play and 9-3-2 overall. Especially lately, Ramirez has been clutch, securing 1-goal wins for Habersham in each of the last 3 region games.

The senior has notched 15 saves in those three contests, and this season has 2 shutouts and allows 1.6 goals against on average. This is Ramirez’s first Player of the Week Award.

For the Lady Raiders, a number of girls have stepped up at different points in 2019. The latest to answer the call is sophomore forward Addie Penick. While her team is only 5-8 overall, they are 5-4 in region play and in a good position to make the state playoffs.

Penick is a big reason why, scoring 5 goals in the past 3 games, going 2-1 in the process. This is Penick’s first Player of the Week Award.

Dawson County has once again put together a masterful 2019. The season has included monumental wins over powerhouse programs Lumpkin County and GAC. Both of those games, which were recently back-to-back, saw Lacey record 12 saves and a shutout. She allowed just one goal in the two games against the #3 team in the state (GAC) and #7 (Lumpkin). The wins also secured the Region 7-AAA title for the #2-ranked Lady Tigers.

Lacey, a former Player of the Year (2017), earns her first Player of the Week Award. Lacey has allowed just 8 goals this season (0.7/game), 3 of which came in the season-opening loss. She has recorded 6 shutouts, and only once allowed more than a goal in a game (same game aforementioned).
