Trio of playmakers named Football Players of the Week

The BLITZ Football Player of the Week Fan Vote collected 13,642 total votes, with Rabun County’s Will Turpin taking 5,173 to win the POW Fan Vote. BLITZ then named both Jaiden Daniels (Commerce) and Bailey Dameron (Dawson) Co-POWs.

WILL TURPIN – FAN VOTE

Will Turpin has been unreal this season. The senior linebacker is a ball hawk, and proved it once again in a 14-tackle night against Pickens (SC). He had an interception, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery as well, producing about as good a night defensively as you could possibly have. For the 2021 season, Turpin has 49 tackles, 6 TFL, 1 sack, an interception, 2 fumble recoveries, and a forced fumble. His career numbers so far – 258 TKL, 33.5 TFL, 10 Sacks, 1 INT, 3 Fum Rec, 2 FFum, 1 Blk FG. This is Turpin’s second BLITZ Award, as he was named Defensive Player of the Month once last season as a junior.

JAIDEN DANIELS – BLITZ PICK

You rarely see a freshman make this sort of impact so quickly. That’s the case for Frosh RB Jaiden Daniels, who put up 193 rushing yards and a TD in his first game as the starting RB. He also collected a pair of tackles in the Commerce Tigers win. Daniels now has 273 rushing yards and 2 TD on the season, 69 kick return yards, and 11 tackles overall. This is Daniels’ first POW award.

BAILEY DAMERON – BLITZ PICK

We just can’t leave Bailey Dameron out. He has been knocking on the door for POW for a few weeks now after a string of 100-yard performances for the Tigers. The senior wideout had 159 receiving yards and 2 TD on 5 catches in a clutch win over the White County Warriors. Dameron is one of the state’s top receiver in yardage, at one point leading all of Class 3A. He currently has 606 yards on 27 catches, adding 4 TDs. In his previous 3 years at Dawson, he had only 34 yards receiving, making him easily one of the most surprising players in 2021. This is Dameron’s first POW award.
