Sophomores Tolbert, Brown Tabbed Players of the Week

The BLITZ Football Player of the Week Fan Vote collected 24,636 total votes, with Commerce’s Ivy Tolbert taking 11,126 to win the POW. BLITZ then named Jefferson’s Sammy Brown co-POW.


Making history in Week One was Ivy Tolbert. Being the first-ever girl to put on a jersey for Commerce football, she didn’t merely suit up. Mark Hollars sent her out for an extra point, which she made. Then came a 26-yard field goal that was good to help secure a 10-0 win over Banks County. This is Tolbert’s third POW award (2 in soccer).

Jefferson’s Sammy Brown was dynamite in his first action for the Dragons. Against #1-ranked Rabun County, Brown tallied 157 rush yards and a TD, averaging 12 yards per tote. He collected 6 tackles (1 for loss), and broke up a pass. Brown was recently named a 5-star recruit and the #1 LB in the country for the class of 2024. This is already his third POW award.
