Tankersley, Scott named Players of the Week

The BLITZ Football Player of the Week Fan Vote collected 27,803 total votes, with Stephens County’s Ritt Tankersley taking 13,293 to win the POW Fan Vote. BLITZ then named Lumpkin’s Cooper Scott co-POW.


Big playmakers come up the big plays in big games. Ritt Tankersley did that for the #4-ranked Stephens County Indians. The junior linebacker tallied 5 tackles, 2 pass breakups, as well as forcing a fumble and picking off a pass in the 35-18 win over arch-rivals Habersham Central. Tankersley is a key part of the undefeated Indians! This is Tankersley’s first POW award.

Lumpkin County’s Cooper Scott has patiently waited for an Indians victory. The junior quarterback led Lumpkin to its first win since 2019, busting a 19-game losing skid that with each week was setting a new program record. The QB passed for 219 yards on 14-for-21 passing (66% completion) and 3 TDs. He added 79 rushing yards and another score, as well as a 2-point conversion. This is Scott’s first POW award.
