Saunders runs to player of week award

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Westover High football team has a short week to prepare for a big region game.

After Saturday's shutout win over Dougherty, the Patriots are back at home for a Thursday night battle against Worth County at Hugh Mills Stadium.

 The Patriots found out last week they have depth in the backfield.

Shannon Saunders receives this week's WALB Albany Area Player of the Week award from Dr. Jason Potocki at the Orthopaedic Associates physical therapy unit Thursday.

Saunders got the start last week for the Patriots and ran for 90 yards and two touchdowns against Dougherty.

Saunders shows he is perfect compliment to junior Deion Greene in the Westover backfield.

 Shannon Saunders said. "It is all up to the o-line. They block and fullback does a good job. I just do what I have to do to run the football."

Game time is 7:00 p.m. Thursday at Hugh Mills Stadium.
