Back of the Week
Russell Halimon, RB Allatoona High School. The 5’9” 180 lb senior is a special player. With his team on the road and trailing unbeaten region rival South Paulding in a rowdy atmosphere, Russell Halimon took over the fourth quarter and led his team to two 4th quarter scores and a thrilling victory 25-18. At the end of the game, Halimon totaled 260 yards rushing on 35 carries and a TD. As a junior, Russell rushed for over 2,000 yards and to-date this year he ranks at the top of the list for rushing yards in the state of Georgia. He has committed to play for Rich Rodriguez and the Arizona Wildcats next year - and given some time and hard work Russell should thrive in Rodriguez’s offense. Congratulations to Russell Halimon, our Back of the Week.
Lineman of the Week
Tomon Fox, DE Collins Hill High School. 6’3” 240 lb SR, Tomon had a monster game against fellow Gwinnett County and region rival, North Gwinnett. The Eagles bested North Gwinnett 52-23 in large part due to the defensive efforts of Fox, who recorded 4 sacks, 3 QB Hurries, 11 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, and 1 forced fumble. Tomon led Gwinnett County in sacks - as a sophomore and has been menacing QBs ever since. Tomon will take his talents to UNC next fall to play for Gene Chizik’s defense. Congratulations to our Lineman of the Week, Tomon Fox.
Coach of the Week
Ron Gartrell, Stephenson High School. Coach Gartrell and the Stephenson Jaguars beat previously unbeaten Creekside High 49-12 in a dominating performance at Hallford Stadium Friday night. This victory catapulted the then unranked Jaguars to #7 in the latest AJC 5-A polls. The victory and rankings are a bonus for the veteran head coach, but his players are always the focus with coach Gartrell. With a 28 year coaching resume that began in 1988, Coach Gartrell sits at 199 career wins. When he crosses the 200 win mark this season, it will place him in elite company with Buck Godfrey as the only two men to amass 200 victories or more in Dekalb County history. Congratulations to our Coach of the Week from Stephenson High School, Ron Gartrell.
